Kevin Clark ’77   

Kevin traveled an interesting path through accounting to become the CEO/Owner of Argosy Cruises.  If you are not familiar, Argosy Cruises is a family-owned and Seattle-operated company that has become the Northwest’s premier cruise company operating from the historic downtown Seattle waterfront, South Lake Union and Kirkland City Dock.  Kevin shared the stories of this path to becoming commander of a fleet of boats, head caterer for the food operations, and a leader in the tourism community.  Last year Kevin became the operator of the Tillicum Village concession on Blake Island, which made Kevin the impresario for the dinner show presented to boat loads of visitors to the long popular Tillicum Village.  As the new operator of the Village, Kevin is working to modernize the operations as well as the show.  The insider info was interesting, and Kevin invited all Fijis to visit the new Tillicum Village by saying “Just contact me”.  Here is Kevin’s e-mail to contact him J  KevinC@ARGOSYCRUISES.COM   

Aaron Schulte ’03 remembered by members of Class of 2003 — Form Memorial Foundation

Aaron Schulte '03Aaron’s passion for international travel exemplified his desire to live life to its fullest.

Through an annual study abroad scholarship at the University of Washington, the Foundation encourages and supports those students who have a similar passion for life.

In April 2007, Aaron Schulte (Washington 2003) lost his year-long battle with colon cancer. Although only 26 years old, Aaron lived a rich and full life and left an amazing legacy. He was a member of Fiji Sires & Sons with his dad, Steve (Washington 1973).

Since the time of Aaron’s passing, Kris Lindquist ’03, Hamilton Gardiner ’03, Ben Adams ’03, Jeremy Kuhlmann ’03, and Sean Newell ’03 have dedicated much of their time and emotions to celebrating Aaron’s life by creating a scholarship fund in his name. On June 5, 2007, the Aaron Schulte Memorial Foundation (ASMF) was incorporated

The goal of the foundation is to grant an annual educational scholarship to one Fiji student at the University of Washington.  The scholarship funds are to be used by the recipients for tuition in study-abroad programs. During their time abroad, the recipients will experience an adventure similar to the one that changed Aaron’s life forever, when he studied abroad in Florence, Italy, during the summer of 2001.
