Photo of Marion Harmon with Willie the WildcatIn this issue, you will find a lot of Wildcat pride. There are the alums and campus and community members who took part in the fourth annual Chico Experience Week, going to reunions and special events and riding their new Wildcat Cruisers. There are the students, faculty, and staff who struck some amusing and lively poses with Willie the Wildcat (see my photo with Willie at right and here). We encourage you to send in your stories about how you have celebrated your Wildcat pride, whether they are from the time when you were attending Chico State or when you have come back for a visit after graduation.

And, we’d love to publish your story about meeting that special someone at Chico State. In the past few issues of Chico Statements, we’ve run stories about

  • Zachary Alexander and Ashley Broome, who met as freshmen living in Shasta Hall and got married four years after graduation; 
  • Kari Kyler and Kyle Daniska, who lived parallel lives while attending Chico State but didn’t actually meet and get married until they were living in Sacramento; and 
  • Gary Russ and Patti Hanna (in this issue), who dated in the 1970s at Chico State, led separate lives for 30-plus years, and reunited and got married two years ago.

Send up to 200 words and photos to wotm@csuchico.edu or mail to Marion Harmon; CSU, Chico; Chico, CA 95929-0040.
