Walter Towner emails, “I’m an adjunct instructor at the Foisie School of Business at Worcester [Mass.] Polytechnic Institute. I’m also director of WPI’s Center for Innovative Manufacturing Solutions, which is partially funded by MassDevelopment, the state’s economic and finance agency. My colleague and former classmate, Shari Worthington, MBA’91, offers me guidance. We still discuss professor Natalie Taylor’s classes. In addition, I’m enjoying my advisory role as the Purple Legionnaire for the college’s Phi Gamma Delta chapter, which is celebrating its 125th year on campus. And I have section-hiked 500 miles of the Appalachian Trail to date.”
