Alumni, Faculty Mix at*2007 Oyster Roast

Primary tabs

The Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) was pleased to host the 2007 Oyster Roast on October 18th at the historic Inman Park Trolley Barn. At this year's event, over 180 alumni, faculty, staff, and friends had the opportunity to reunite with colleagues and meet current faculty. There was much delight, laugher, and the retelling of stories as guests enjoyed steamed oysters, jambalaya, portabella mushrooms, and Brunswick stew.

The Oyster Roast has a long history in ISyE, thanks to Betty and Frank Peeples, IE 1949. Betty and Frank created and hosted what has become known as a truly legendary event, made possible by Frank's vision and unparalleled dedication to ISyE. Thanks to the Peeples, the Oyster Roast has become a wonderful homecoming tradition for Stewart School alumni, faculty, and staff. Frank officially "retired* from his role in 2005, and the Stewart School felt it was extremely important to continue this tradition of bringing the ISyE family together to kick off homecoming activities.

The Stewart School of ISyE would like to continue the annual Oyster Roast and is currently looking for alumni to help ensure its longevity. If you are interested in assisting, contact ISyE's Director of Development, Nancy Sandlin. She can be reached at nsandlin@isye.gatech.edu
