Suzanna B. Sanchez ’04, Co-Class Agent

Suzanna Sanchez, a performer since her early teenage years, was active with the Princeton University Players, performing, among other roles, Anita in West Side Story and Sally Bowles in Cabaret. When she wasn’t onstage, the Atlanta, Georgia, native was studying for her major, Operations Research and Financial Engineering, and pursuing certificates in finance and in engineering and management.

Kathleen and Robert Stansky P09 P15, Parents Fund Co-Chairs

Kathy and Bob Stansky have been committed to helping the University “any way we can,” says Kathy Stansky, since daughter Marya ’09 was a freshman. When Philip ’15 graduates, his parents will continue their involvement as life members of the Parents Committee―“the next stage in our relationship with Princeton.”

Thomas A. Dippel ’93, Co-Class Agent

Tom Dippel finds that classmates share “a strong commitment to giving back to the University, and particular support for Princeton’s financial aid policy. That’s what drives our efforts for Annual Giving.” And, he admits, there is a spirit of friendly competition with other classes that inspires AG solicitation. He is hoping to “break all records for attendance and for AG in 2018 when we have our 25th Reunion.”

J. William Charrier ’69, Annual Giving Volunteer

Let’s start with a love story, one that has benefited Princeton. An English major at Princeton, Bill Charrier was also active in Theatre Intime. Soprano Anne Stovall was then a student at nearby Westminster Choir College, and the two met in a Theatre Intime production of Little Mary Sunshine―she in the title role, he providing tech support. He later became the group’s producer and business manager. Bill and Anne Stovall Charrier later founded the Friends of Theatre Intime, which Bill now serves as board chair.

Henry C. Barkhorn III ’71, Annual Giving Volunteer

“All graduates owe it to Princeton to help maintain the academic excellence that has distinguished our university for the past 250-plus years,” says Henry Barkhorn. “Volunteering for Princeton is something we can all do.” Currently a leadership gifts volunteer, he has served as class president, class treasurer, and critical few chair. He has also been a member of the special gifts committee, as well as a member of the Alumni Council’s Class Affairs Committee.

Ray E. Newton III ’86, Class Agent

“I am forever grateful for the opportunities I received at Princeton,” says Chip Newton, who came to the University from New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois. “I became a responsible adult in those four years. I learned how to think. What to think was up to me.” He treasures connections with friends from undergraduate days as well as those he has met as an Annual Giving volunteer. “Princeton is a relationship that may start when you are 18, but it is one that never ends,” he says.

Bruce D. Freeman ’69, Class Agent

Bruce Freeman has just assumed the duties of class agent for the five years leading up to the Class of 1969’s 50th Reunion, but he is no stranger to University service. He has long served his class as Annual Giving special gifts chair, leadership chair, and participation volunteer. He was a reunion committee member, and yearbook editor for ’69’s 35th, 40th, and 45th Reunions. A former member of the 1969 Community Service Fund Board of Directors, he was also a member of his regional schools committee. And he spent 10 years on Princeton’s staff as a senior associate director of Annual Giving.

Harold H. Saunders ’52, Annual Giving Volunteer

Hal Saunders has always been proud to wear orange and black. Princeton gave him, he says, “my intellectual awakening and my basic approach to life. I am deeply appreciative of everything the University offered me.” At Princeton he majored in English, and earned a certificate in the Program in American Civilization (now American Studies).
