(and Class Correspondent) Connie Ferris Meyer]
On April 17, 2017, Martha E. Pollack, will become the 14th president
of Cornell University! She was elected unanimously by Cornell's Board
of Trustees back on November 14, 2016. Pollack is provost and vice president
for academic affairs at the University of Michigan. Her areas of expertise
and responsibility over her years there are multiple and varied and most impressive. Pollack's
academic background in computer science and information science will serve the vast
Cornell community well.
Upon being elected to be the 14th president of Cornell, Pollack stated the following,
"I am humbled and honored to have been elected to lead this great university," Pollack
said. "As a private university with a public mission, Cornell is the
embodiment of my own deeply held belief in the ability of knowledge to improve the
human condition. I can't wait to get started, and I look forward to meeting
and working with Cornell's outstanding faculty, students, staff and alumni in Ithaca,
New York City and around the globe."

I realize that many of you have very specific areas of Cornell to which you donate
funds. That being noted and said, I want to be sure you are aware that
the Legendary Class of 1970 has established three funds that are in fact
gifts from our class to the University and the Cornell Community.
We have two endowments, The Class of 1970 Scholarship Fund (which has been
awarding scholarships to Cornell undergrads annually for many years) and The Spirit
of the Class of 1970 Fund (being used to support and sustain: 1. Touchdown
the Big Red Bear; 2. The Cornell Cheerleading Squad; and 3. The Annual Senior Athlete
Banquet.). Our third fund is The Class of 1970 Art Fund (which
has been used to purchase or assist in obtaining several works of art for Cornell's
Johnson Museum of Art). Further information on the Art Fund can be found
here on our
website. I would be happy to provide more info to anyone who is interested.
