Part of what makes Pacific so special is the community, and the people that help foster and grow it. Alumni Bob ’64 and Sunny (McGowan) Iboshi ’67 are wonderful examples of this. During Homecoming they received the David & Sandy Lowe Outstanding Alumni Service Award for their involvement at Pacific, including endowing a scholarship and being co-chairs of the Charles Trombley Society.
