Two IE alumni named 2017 Old Masters
- Kathy Kilmer (BSIE 1992) - Director of sales analytics and insights at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
- Anthony Miller (BSIE 1989) - Co-founder, COO and partner of The Vistria Group and former COO and deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.
During their visit, Old Masters will participate in classroom talks, student organization receptions and a community-wide panel discussion to create relationships with students.
An Old Master is an exceptional person who has made significant contributions to his or her own field, and this year all are alumni returning to their alma mater to share ideas and experiences with current Boilermakers. Each year, a group of 12 students known as the Central Committee evaluate hundreds of nominations in order to choose ten deserving candidates. The Old Masters program has been a Purdue tradition since 1950. The program is known for connecting distinguished professionals to the student body in order to enrich traditions, unite generations and empower one another to move the world forward together as Boilermakers.
