President Brian Bradtke Farewell note

Former Phoenix Illini Alumni Club President, Brian Bradtke, has moved to Dallas.

What a year it was in 2019 - from Illini basketball games out here in Arizona to crazy football game watch comebacks to our annual Spring Training game and other events!

However, the time has come to pass on the reigns of Phoenix Illini Club president as I will be moving to Texas next month (January 2020).  Thank you to YOU for making it an incredible 10 years in the Valley, 5 years as a board member, and the past 2 years as your president.

We have accomplished a lot including a record number of memberships, all-time highs in scholarship fund numbers, inclusion of all generations of alumni, and creation of fun, heavily attended events.  It has always been about making memories and creating experiences!

You are in good hands with the current board of directors and I look forward to coming back to Arizona to celebrate more Illini victories!

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!



Brian Bradtke
