Class Notes

FAMILY ALBUM All in the Family Meet a few of this year’s multigeneration Rochester families.

Commencement is a time for family and friends to gather to celebrate a new generation of achievement and success. Throughout the commencement season at Rochester, those celebrations include several families who share not only the joy of graduation, but also a legacy of ties to the University. We asked a few of those multigeneration families to pose for photos this spring.


Three Generations

The College ceremony brought together three generations of the Scala family: John Scala ’80, his son, Andrew Scala ’11, a mechanical engineering major in the Hajim School from Lancaster, Pa.; and Andrew’s grandparents, Robert ’58M (PhD) and Janet Eddy Scala ’55N. Photo: Brandon Vick

At the School of Medicine and Dentistry ceremony, Calla Brown ’11M (MD), of Zionsville, Ind., and her fiancé, Bela Denes Jr. ’11M (MD), of Springfield, Ill., were welcomed into the profession by their physician fathers, Darron Brown ’79M (MD), ’82M (Flw), ’82M (Res) (left) and Bela Denes Sr. (right).
