Peggy Bokan Greenawalt ’66, who serves as chair of the board at the Wilma Theater, will host the event in the stunning, state-of-the-art facility.

Piltch’82, managing director of the Cambridge Advisory Group. Ellen Arnold Groff ’67, P’93 will convey celebration plans that are underway in honor of the William Smith Centennial.
