Here's a picture of of Melisa Ziegler (Career Services) with Sheila Taormina, an Olympic swimmer, triathlete and pentathlete. "She’s basically amazing!" writes Melisa. "I met her last summer at a motivational speech she did for Danskin  Triathlon participants. She let me wear her gold medal which was pretty cool."

Quinton Morris (Fine Arts), meanwhile, demonstrates a knack for the double-celebrity shot.

Casey was at the White House as a writer for the Daily Journal American, a Bellevue-based newspaper that no longer exists. During this visit (circa 1978) he was telling the president he had earlier met his brother and mother, who both had visited the Seattle area.
