DOUG BORCHERS ‘87 (ELE) lives in Russia, Ohio. He writes, “I’m proud to announce the graduation of child No. 2 from UD: Victoria ’16 graduated summa cum laude in early childhood education, joining brother Zach ’14, who studied civil engineering. My daughter Taylor is a junior at UD, and we have four more future UD students to follow. I recently accepted a position as president of Superior Aluminum Products.” Doug also received an MBA from UD in 1996.

BOB DALEY ‘87 (CME) lives in Munhall, Pa. In May, the Pound Civil Justice Institute awarded him the Appellate Advocacy Award, which recognizes attorneys who secured a final appellate court decision that positively affected universal citizens’ rights. Bob, a partner at Robert Peirce & Associates in Pittsburgh, received the award for his work on Tooey v. AK Steel Corp., which altered the workers’ compensation landscape in Pennsylvania. He has nearly two decades of experience in representing clients in legal matters related to personal injury, products liability law, toxic torts, and nursing home neglect and abuse. In addition, Bob is an adjunct professor in trial advocacy at Duquesne University School of Law, serves on several professional associations, and volunteers with election petition challenges and as a representative of adults who experienced lead poisoning as children.

MATT HUTTER ‘93 (ELE) and GINA HUTTER ’94 (ENG) live in Cleveland with their three children. Matt writes, “We keep busy with all the kids’ activities. I own a small IT consulting business.

Joining me were Chris Kline, who lives in Cincinnati, has three kids and does business consulting; Chris Nartker, a teacher and coach with the Beavercreek, Ohio, city schools, who has four children with his wife, Chantelle; Tim Blubaugh, who lives in Chicago, has worked with USG for 20 years and, with his wife, Molly, has two children; George Beavers, who lives in Centerville, Ohio, with his wife, Wendy Long Beavers ’94, and their two children; and Greg Helm, who lives in Dayton with his wife and three daughters.”
