Robert Friend ’79, president of Emerson’s Alumni Association, was honored June 2 at the Brooklyn College Managers for the Arts 2010 Alumni Gathering for his dedicated service to the Brooklyn College MFA in Theater program.

Friend, who is the vice president of sales and marketing for Choice Ticketing Systems, is an adjunct lecturer at the college.

“Bob’s undying commitment to his students extends far beyond the classroom. He is always one of the first people to respond to email updates on my life be they personal or professional, and there is not a conference that goes by where he doesn’t pull me aside to introduce me to valued colleagues.”
