Biographical / Historical

The Presidents' Alumni Ball (originally the President's Alumni Ball) was launched in 2006 to mark Al Simone's final year as president of RIT. It has always been hosted in conjunction with Brick City Homecoming, and in the past two years, to highlight the Alumni Association's leadership role, the name changed to Presidents' Alumni Ball, co-hosted by President Bill Destler and Kathleen Anderson, President of the RIT Alumni Association.

Also begun in 2006, the Ball serves as the award ceremony for the presentation of the two highest honors bestowed by the university: the Outstanding Alumni Award and the Volunteer of the Year Award.
