PITTSBURGH, June 9 -- The University of Pittsburgh Alumni Association will honor the 2000 "Volunteers of the Year" at a luncheon on Saturday, June 10, at

11:30 a.m., in the Masonic Temple Ballroom, Fifth Avenue, Oakland.

Five people will receive the award, created to recognize and honor individuals who have enriched the life of the University through their volunteer efforts. This year's winners are: William Cully, a 1949 College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) graduate from Renfrew, PA, who donated glass windows for the Alumni Center's French doors bearing the Pitt Alumni Association seal; Brian Generalovich, a 1966 CAS and 1998 dental school graduate from Hermitage, PA, who has been a key contributor to the success and growth of the Alumni Association's membership and financial stability; J. Roger Glunt, a 1960 business school graduate and Alumni Trustee from Penn Hills, PA, who has devoted numerous hours, dollars, and talents to Pitt; Trish Rall Henniger, a 1977 CAS graduate from Selinsgrove, PA, who established a scholarship fund; and Felix 'Bebe' Miller, 1950 CAS and 1955 medical school graduate from Point Breeze, PA, who as chair of the medical school's phonathon committee recruited volunteers who raised close to $80,000 for the University.

Pitt Alumni Recruitment Team (PART) volunteers also will be recognized at the luncheon. They are Michael Aronowsky, CAS 1967, and his wife, Arlene, from Massapequa, NY. PART volunteers recruit new students to the University by attending college fairs, visiting high schools, conducting freshmen sendoff "Pitt-nics," and serving as contacts for prospective students and their parents.
