current member of the Society who has demonstrated exemplary volunteer service to the
University of Southern California.

Area. He has served as president and founding member of a number of alumni
organizations, including the East Bay Alumni Club, the Contra Costa Alumni Club,
and the Associated Alumni Clubs. He was elected president of the USC General
Alumni Association in 1994 and served on the USC Board of Trustees from 1993 to
1998. He continues to serve as Chairman of the Bay Area SC Weekender.

served as President of the Student Body. He was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, Phi

Corp and then was appointed Assistant Chief of Surgery at Kaiser Permanenteís
Oakland Medical Center, where he served, ultimately as Chief of Surgery, until
his retirement in September 2004. He is a member of many medical professional
societies, including membership as a Fellow of both the American and
International College of Surgeons.
In addition to the USC organizations mentioned above, he served, among others,
as a member of the USC General Alumni Association Board of Governors from 1984
to 1992, as Chairman of the Northern California Regional Board from 2001 to 2005
