A Message from Your Class Reunion Chairs

Michigan Tech from the air

Dear Class of 2010

As you may be aware 2020, marks the 10th anniversary of graduating from Michigan Tech and the Keweenaw of our youth. The Class of 2010 will celebrate these past 10 years and return to Houghton August 6–8, 2020, for our reunion. You and our classmates have gone on to do some amazing things, and we look forward to hearing about what we’ve all been up to. The weekend will be a great chance for us to reconnect, see the changes on campus, and enjoy the hospitality of the Copper Country once again.

It is also a long-standing Michigan Tech tradition for the 10th anniversary class to hold a special gift effort to commemorate our milestone. We personally invite all members of the Class of 2010 to join us in making a contribution in support of the reunion gift program and to honor all that we have achieved.

We’ll be in touch with details of our reunion as well as the progress of our gift effort. We’re looking forward to returning to Houghton and our alma mater, and we’re sure you, like us, have many great memories. Let’s do all we can to make this a memorable reunion celebration for our entire class.

Sincerely

Stephanie (Lindstrom) Heiden and David Heiden
Class of 2010 Reunion Co-Chairs
