Mac Macdonald, '71 BA Psychology, was chosen to be one of the speakers during the 70th-year commemorations of the D-Day landings in Normandy, France. Speaking to several hundred international high school students at the Colville Cemetery, he warned about the addiction to cell phone and entertainment options versus contributing to society through volunteerism, engagement, and participation. "World War II is a fading memory, and the stunning success-against-all-odds of that Allied effort against Hitler's Atlantic fortress is something to be remembered and honored. Civic participation, civil discourse, voter participation, and upholding the values outlined by our Founding Fathers is what those service people died for." He presents slideshows around the country at various conferences showing the re-enactors who annually return to Normandy to honor the sacrifices of their relatives. June 6, 2019, will mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day. A corporate trainer in Seattle, he lives in Sequim.
