Scholars Swap Stories at Old Ebbitt Grill

On a balmy June evening in Washington, DC, more than 40 Truman Scholars from all classes (1977-2010) descended on the Old Ebbitt Grill in Washington, DC for a Meet-and-Greet event to swap stories, make new pals, and spill the beans about Madeleine Albright’s latest brooch acquisition. We were delighted that Trumans from 1977-2009 were able to join us for a terrific Happy Hour hosted by Christine Curella (NJ ’07) and Caitie Whelan (ME ’07), featuring Truman Foundation Executive Secretary Fred Slabach (MS ’77) and Truman Scholars Association President Pooja Agarwal (MO ’05). Even an amateur eavesdropper could tell from the bear hugs and guffawing that Trumans are professionals when it comes to having a good time. We certainly hope you can join us for our next DC bash!
