Rush report for early August

100_1434
2011 Rush Chairs – Nick Timberlake ’13 and Riley Goodman ’13 being congratulated by Jerry Keppler ’68

The rush chairs turned in a solid report of success for their progress in recruiting the Class of 2015. In this luncheon report of early August, they reported that they’ve signed 22 members from 20 different high schools. They currently have bids extended to four at this time. The average GPA for the 22 signees is 3.779

The goal for 2011 rush is 30 new members. As a comparison, this time last year, the signed member count was at 27. So there is some pressure to close-out the summer with a big push.

Congrats to the rush co-chairs and all the others who are part of the rush team. A note that 15 recommendations from graduates have been received in the past month, and the rush chairs will always welcome a few more recs. Recs can be submitted via the website www.FijiSeattle.com

August Luncheon – Speaker Neil Fallon – Northwestern Class of ’89

Neil Fallon – Northwestern ’89

Neil Fallon of Northwestern’s Class of ’89 was our speaker for the August luncheon.

A lifelong resident of Tacoma, Neil graduated from Bellarmine Prep in Tacoma where his experiences included quarterback of the football team. Recruited to play football at Northwestern, Neil joined the Fiji chapter and became “purple”.

For the past 20 years Neil has been a real estate developer in Pierce County where he managed well until the recent downturn had him re-evaluating his economic prospects. Neil shared the process that got him into the craft brewery business.

Neil recruited a prominent brewmaster to partner with him to create the craft brewery now known as the American Brewery Company. The brewery was launched the end of February this year.
