The February 25 Six O’Clock Series will feature IUP alumnus Tom Baker discussing how students can leave a legacy at their university through campus involvement. The evening’s series will be introduced by Andrew Longacre, who knows a great deal about the topic. A senior Safety Science and Political Science double major, Longacre is serving as a member of the IUP Board of Trustees, the committee of individuals that guides the university and has final approval on university policy.

In addition, Longacre serves as a leader in Student Government Association and the Student Cooperative Association. As a founding father of Phi Delta Theta, a member of IUP Ambassadors, and a varsity track and field member, Andrew has been taking an active role at IUP throughout his education. He is an inspiring student leader and an excellent spokesperson to introduce “Leaving Your Legacy.”

Tom Baker, M.A., is the chief community affairs officer for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh. After serving as vice president of programs for BBBS and leading a gold-standard, award-winning program staff for three years, Baker transitioned into his new role in September 2011 as president of Baker Leadership.

His program will aim to empower and inspire students to extend their experiences and involvement to ensure that they leave a legacy on campus. This session will focus on strategies to enable students to organize projects, plan events, recruit students, and motivate others. More information can be found at the Six O’Clock Series website.

“Leaving Your Legacy” will be held Monday, February 25, 2013, at 6:00 p.m. in the HUB Ohio Room.
