Becky Moore (BS ’06, MS ’08) and Jessica Moore (BS ’10) traveled to Charlotte, N.C., in May 2010. They showed off their Pitt State pride while touring the Hendrick Motorsports Racing Complex, home to Jeff Gordon & Jimmie Johnson’s racing teams. While on their adventure, they also toured Rousch Fenway, Earnhardt Ganassi, and Joe Gibbs racing shops, the brand new NASCAR Hall of Fame, and the qualifying for the Coca-Cola 600 race. They ended their trip by attending the Coca-Cola 600 race and cheering on their favorite drivers.

There are lots of exotic species on the Galapagos Islands, but not many Gorillas. While Matt Vietti (BA ’99) and his wife, Angela (BA ’99), showed their Gorilla pride, marine iguanas covered the rocky shore behind them. Matt and Angela live in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Making a BIG impression. There was no shortage of Gorillas at the Vatican when these loyal alumni showed their pride on the Our Lady of Lourdes Choir (Pittsburg, Kan.) pilgrimage to Rome in March 2010.

Gorillas at Disney World. Mel Anderson (BSBA, MBA, MS, EdS) and sons Chris (BSBA ’99) and Matt (BS ’08) on spring break at Disney World – clearly loyal readers of the Pitt State Magazine.

Proud to be teachers and alumni. These Pittsburg third grade teachers, all PSU alumni, show their Gorilla pride at the Botanical Gardens at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas in June. The teachers were attending a national workshop on Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), a national strategy for school change and improvement. Left to right are Lori Wilkes (George Nettels Elementary), Kerstin Womble (Westside Elementary), Lacey O’Brien (Lakeside Elementary), and Amy Bartlow (George Nettels Elementary).

Another growing Gorilla family. It was a Gorilla family vacation to Hoover Dam in March 2010. Marlin Carson (BS ’78), his wife, Ellen (BSN ’78) their daughter, Lindsay Young (BBA ’05, MBA ’09), and husband, Aaron (BSET ’05), all made the trip to celebrate the marriage of Grant Carson (BST ’07) and Tosha (Gier) Carson. Tosha, a management major, is well on her way toward adding still one more PSU degree to the family.
