MIT CoSTx Golf Update
Dateline Sept 17, 2015
A big turnout of MIT’s local golfing alums enjoyed a beautiful September 13, 2015 at the Cypresswood Tradition course in Spring, TX. Three groups teed off for the afternoon round, and at the end of the day Guy Vachon ‘81 led the way with an outstanding 81, to match his class year! He was followed closely by Stuart Traver ’73, who shot an 83, and by Praxedis Flores ‘02 with an 89. In keeping with our policy of confidentiality, we won’t report any higher scores. But we will mention that the other participants included Steve Koch OE ’80, Murat Ocalan ME ’11, Yoshio Perez ’11, Folkers Rojas ’08, Al Tervalon ’65, and Greg Turner ’74. A nice range of class years!
We will target another weekend later in the fall for our next outing.
For those interested in being on the "golf mailing list," feel free to contact Greg Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please join the MIT Club of South Texas if you haven’t already, make your contribution to the Annual Fund, and come on out and join us!

Seeking volunteers for Star of Hope “Activities for Teens” Sessions
As part of its local community outreach the MIT Club of South Texas will host a series of educational enrichment programs for teen residents of the Star of Hope. The programs will be held on Friday evenings at the Women & Family Emergency Shelter and Transitional Living Center in Houston.
Initial program topics include a demonstration by a robotics competition team, current direction of space exploration and technology careers in 2025 (medical, industrial, military, etc.). Each program would be a one-evening presentation with an engaging multifaceted curriculum designed for youth. Volunteers are needed for curriculum development as well as presenters including professionals to offer testimonials and encouragement. Alumni may volunteer for either curriculum development or curriculum presentation tasks.
All participants in the presentations required to complete a Star of Hope Volunteer Application for advance clearance. Those seeking additional information or interested in joining a program night please contact David Brown at email@example.com

We’re Looking for Speakers…Got an Interesting Topic?
Can you give an interesting presentation about your profession (or avocation)? This can be a professional talk, an overview of an area, or a collection of “war stories” about your professional experiences. We’re looking for local alums to speak at an upcoming club event. Learn more...
