Donald R. Ferrari '59
Title: Class of 1989

Don Ferrari, you were truly an outstanding athlete at WPI. A four-year letterman in baseball and a three-year letterman in football, you co-captained both sports in your senior year. You also earned three club letters in ice hockey. 

As the baseball team's second baseman during your junior and senior years, you accumilated two amazing errorless seasons. As quarter-back-halfback and degensive safety for the football team, you gave 110 percent every time you carried the ball, leaving your mark on the gridiron as well. You gained an average of 4.6 yards each time you carried the ball during your senior year, a testimony to your skill. When you were a junior, the quarterback left the team and you were asked to take over that vital position. You handled your new responsibilities with skill and dedication, becoming a real leader for the team.

Your outstanding achievements continued off the field. You were inducted int oSkull, WPI's senior honor society, and were included in Woh's Who in American Colleges and Universities. You were voted president of your senior class and were a loyal member of the Varsity Club, Tech Senate, Athletic Council and Council of Presidents. You were also a member of the Phi Kappa Theta fraternity, serving as fraternity president your senior year. 

Don Ferrari, it is with much pride and honor that induct you into the WPI Athletic Hall of Fame.
