Monogram Club Musings – NC State Weekend

Oct 30, 2017, 12:39 PM EDT

Lt. Gen. Bryan Fenton ('87, manager) was presented the Monogram Club's Edward "Moose" Krause Distinguished Service Award during a luncheon on Friday.

Maybe the only thing that could have made this past weekend better was if Lt. Gen. Bryan Fenton (’87, manager) brought the sun and temperatures with him from his home in Hawaii. Fenton, a member of the U.S. Army for over 30 years, returned to his alma mater to receive the Monogram Club’s highest honor, the Edward “Moose” Krause Distinguished Service Award.

The presentation of the Moose Krause Award was one of many Club events during its Annual Mass, Meeting and Reception weekend. It was tremendous to see so many Monogram Club members back on campus taking part in the various activities. And, of course, it also was great to see the Fighting Irish produce another dominating victory on the gridiron.

Here’s a look back at the special weekend…

Marty Allen (’58, manager) also addressed the current group of football student managers. Allen served as president of the Monogram Club from 1997-99, and now is director emeritus. He was the 2013 recipient of the Moose Krause Distinguished Service Award.

Following the game, the Monogram Club held its Annual Mass and Meeting. At the meeting, Terri Vitale (’94, ’95, tennis) began her two-year term as Club president, and Ryan Harris (’07, football), Ruth Riley (’01, ’16, basketball) and Takashi Yoshii (’10, tennis) were confirmed as new directors.

There also was a special surprise to conclude the meeting…

Thanks to all the Monogram Club members who were part of this weekend’s festivities!
