In fall 2016, sisters Carolyn Kirkpatrick Davis ’86 and Paula Kirkpatrick Andrei ’91, M’92 attended the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York to watch Carolyn’s son, a senior at Homer-Center High School, perform with the Macy’s Great American Marching Band.

Talking with the family in front of them, they found an IUP connection in Craig Krouse ’95, of Shenango Township, who was there with his wife and three kids. Craig is a vice president at Tier 1, Inc., in Pittsburgh, and Carolyn and Paula both work at IUP.
