WABI interviews alumnus celebrating 50th reunion

WABI (Channel 5) spoke with Allan Arch, a 1965 University of Maine alumnus, who visited the campus from his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for his 50th reunion. Arch was a student during the university’s 100th anniversary and is experiencing another UMaine milestone as the institution celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. While Arch majored in history, he went on to join the Navy and then own an engineering business. “Every experience I had at the university was a good one, and I found I could compete in the world both in the service and outside, and I think that’s due to the fact that I got a great education here at UMaine,” he said. The Bangor Daily News also published an article on Arch.
