We departed today for Israel from KCI. Fourteen of us – I mean 15 including Max – took a Missouri Western bus from campus. When we got to the airport, Max was snug in my bag when I checked in, but he had to go through security. He made it through without incident.

Follow the adventures of Max T. Griffon on his first alumni trip. Max will be departing for Israel on US Airways on May 24. He’s stowing away in Colleen’s luggage rather than flying on his own so that he’s not tired when he gets there. “Since Max is so small, he doesn’t need his own seat,” said Colleen Kowich, Director of Alumni Relations, “Max and I are looking forward to our first Alumni Association trip led by Dr. Jimmy Albright.”
