US Assembly: Class of 1957 Alumni Speaker Series: Felix Santoni '51

Date: Tuesday - November 14, 2017
Time: 9:25 AM to 10:40 AM

Riverdale's Class of 1957 Alumni Speaker Series aims to bring to campus four alumni per year to address students, faculty, and other community members. Established during the 2013-14 school year through the generosity of Riverdale's Class of 1957, and spearheaded by Tim Zagat '57, the Speaker Series has attracted several distinguished alumni to campus including Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell '61, NFL player and Super Bowl winner Calvin Hill '65, and artist Clifford Ross '70.

Major General (Retired) Felix A. Santoni graduated from Riverdale in 1951, then went on to earn his B.S. in economics from the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce at the University of Pennsylvania. He began his military service in 1955 and had a distinguished career spanning more than five decades.

Major General Santoni retired from active duty in 1995 as Deputy Commander in Chief for Mobilization and Reserve Affairs, U.S. Southern Command with headquarters at Quarry Heights, Panama. He continued to serve the Army in a civilian role until recently retiring from his position as Senior Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army (CASA) for Puerto Rico, where he now serves as CASA Emeritus. In March 2015, Major General Santoni was honored for his important contributions to the military with the historic dedication of an Armed Forces Reserve Center in his name, a practice typically limited to deceased persons.
