HAA Recognizes Sandy Weissent

The March-April 2005 issue of Harvard Magazine announced that the Clubs Committee of the Harvard Alumni Association had selected Sandy Weissent as one of only two recipients of the annual Outstanding Club Contribution Award for 2004. Here's a picture of Sandy, on the right, and the story:

Alexander B. Weissent '73, of Chicago, has helped lead the Harvard Club of Chicago's successful Adopt-A-School program, providing more than 200 alumni volunteers to meet needs at the urban Walter Payton College Prep High School. "Harvols," as they are called at the club, have helped with academic tutoring, college counseling, and athletics, among other things. Weissent is now working to expand volunteer activities city-wide, and is active in Alumni for Public Schools (a network of college and university alumni founded in 2001 that is committed to enriching the city's educational system).
