Mike Reidy, Honorary Alumnus 2004, retired from Wabash in 2010 after 32 years as Associate Director of Admissions. Last week, the Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee selected Mike to replace a Crawfordsville city council seat which was vacated by a recent resignation.
In a Journal Review article announcing his selection, Mike commented that his experience recruiting prospective students is one which has probably prepared him for his work on the city council: “He has also been a recruiter at Wabash College for 32 years, a position he believes has prepared him for anything. “My job consists of convincing a bunch of 17 and 18-year-old guys that they wanted to go to a school without any girls,” Reidy said. “And I think I was pretty convincing.”
