Homecoming Reunion

Our last reunion was held on Friday evening, Oct 5. There will be no more plans for a separate alumni
reunion going forward. We feel that there is a lack of interest in such events, based on dwindling
attendance and conflicting schedules. There may be special events in the future.

Spotlight

Rex Bradford Galloway ’86 has joined RE/MAX Realty Professionals in Greenville, SC. He was formerly
with IMI Resort Holdings as Vice President of Administration. He writes “I grew up around the real estate
                           business and have been actively involved in it as a full-time broker since 1987.
                           The first half of my career, I focused mainly on general residential with
                           investment & commercial experience in the Upstate of SC (primarily in the
                           Greenville market). During the 2nd half, my focus has been on the
                           luxury/lifestyle side of the industry. I have typically engaged in upper-tier
                           price range developments that are highly amenitized and located in vacation-
                           destination/resort/2nd home markets within various regions of North
                           America and the Caribbean. My role in these projects varies from sales
                           administration to operations to brokerage management, but always with
                           maximum SALES RESULTS as the primary goal. Serving the primary, my
                           secondary goal with having a presence on Linked-In is to stay absolutely on
