Last month (Jan. 10-15), a group of 20 CMC students participated in the 11th Annual Evans Information Technology Advisory Board (ITAB) Networking Trip to Silicon Valley. It was a chance for the CMCers to “grin and grab” with some of the tech industry’s elite movers and shakers and, at the same time, make connections that could really pay dividends in the future.

And they made the most of the opportunity.

The CMC community is mourning the loss of Barton Evans, a member of the College’s Board of Trustees, Class of 1970 alumnus, and guiding force behind the College’s expansion into the Silicon Valley and the tech sector at large.

Evans died on May 14 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 66.


Dear CMC Community,

It is with heavy hearts that we must report the sad news that Trustee Bart Evans ’70 died on Wednesday, May 14, after a long fight against pancreatic cancer. We want his wife Andrea to know that our prayers and support are with her during this especially difficult time.
