Welcome to the Quincy University Alumni Chapter site for alumni residing in Colorado.
On Friday, November 2, 2012, fourteen Quincy University alumni, family and friends gathered at Racine’s Restaurant in Denver, Colorado for the 8th Annual QU Colorado Alumni Chapter Gathering.
The highlight of the event was honoring Linda Rinehart’81 with a plaque as she retired as Founding Chair of the Colorado Alumni Chapter (2005 – 2012). Incoming Colorado Chair & NAB member, Tom Gorell ’63 thanked her for her dedication and enthusiasm in supporting Colorado alumni and Quincy University. Also sharing in that presentation were chapter founding members Don Hargis '90 and Paul Brown '65. The chapter was organized in 2005 when Jack Mackenzie was Alumni Director. Mike Whelan, QU Advancement Vice President at the time, represented the University at the first gathering that year.
Among the many distinctions achieved during Linda’s tenure, Colorado is:
- The first and only chapter that has had eight consecutive annual gatherings
- The first and only chapter that averages 10% of their alums at these gatherings
- The first and only chapter that bought a commemorative brick in Friars Plaza
- The first chapter that had new QU President, Bob Gervasi, as a guest speaker
- The first chapter with a web page on the QU web site
- The first chapter with a Chair & Vice Chair
