Jim Bertoli may be from western Pennsylvania- and an enthusiastic supporter of Pittsburgh sports teams-but he's well aware of Rose-Hulman's prestige and heritage in his second "hometown" of Terre Haute.
   "I have long admired Rose-Hulman, its people, and, especially, the loyal support from its alumni," he says.
   Bertoli is finding out those deep loyalties- one handshake at a time-as he gets acquainted with alumni throughout the country as the new Executive Director of Alumni Affairs.
   A member of the Terre Haute community since 1997, Bertoli has served as executive director of the Union Hospital Foundation and United Way of the Wabash
Valley, and is a former head volleyball coach at Indiana State University.
   "I'm a people person, and, as a former coach, I appreciate being a member of a winning team. We have won 13 straight national championships (U.S. News & World Report annual college rankings)," he says. "We need to tap into the alumni's loyalty and excitement, provide more and better service to our alumni, and strengthen relationships that benefit alumni and Rose-Hulman.
   "I want to get valuable feedback from alumni," he continues. "We want alumni to be familiar and comfortable with the Office of Alumni Affairs. We're here to help them." Page Square
