As chair of the Minority Alumni Network, Tony Gray '98 frequently returns to campus to welcome new students, mentor current students and reconnect with alumni.

Your hometown?

Originally Asheville, N.C.; high school in South Holland, Illinois; currently San Francisco, California.

Why Wesleyan?

Honestly it was just the feel of campus during my visit. I was considering a few schools and during the visit it just felt right. Obviously the academics were important, and I knew I’d have an opportunity to run track and still pursue music, which were both important to me at the time.

Your major?

International Studies (Asia-Pacific focus), Political Science minor

Favorite professor or class?

Dr. Thomas Lutze… just unbelievable taking classes on China with him.

After Wesleyan?

I worked in the Admissions Office and coached track for a couple years before moving to San Francisco to pursue graduate school in Asian-Pacific studies.

I currently work in business development for an international eDiscovery service company.

Biggest thrill or best memory?

There are way too many to list. Graduation is high on the list. Also:
– Traveling to Salem, Virginia, for the NCAA basketball tournament the year we got 3rd place.
– Mizuno internship in Tokyo, Japan.

For fun?

Currently: Traveling, wine tasting, anything and everything outdoors. Keeping healthy and working out. Visiting with friends and family around the country.

Favorite book?

Tuesday’s with Morrie by Mitch Albom; Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino

Favorite band?

Favorite quote?

“Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.” – Minor Myers, Jr.
