Chris Maddox, A00

Maddox was recently awarded the Alumni Chapter Leadership Award by the TUAA for his work with the Tufts Alumni Los Angeles chapter.

Current occupation: Actor and writer

Volunteer experience at Tufts:
President, Tufts Alumni Los Angeles

Most memorable volunteer experience:
My most memorable volunteer experience was when Sol Gittleman spoke to 200 of our alumni at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles. It was a very special evening.

Why volunteer?
I volunteer for Tufts to connect people, to foster relationships between current students and alumni, and to stay connected to Tufts while on the west coast.

Tufts experience to relive:
I would experience the opportunity of going abroad to Spain again. That year was one of the most life-changing experiences in my life. The day that Joan Berenguer invited me to come, I was a little numb, and not sure I wanted to go. Nevertheless, I went and had the time of life, and became fluent in Spanish—a true gift.
