Reflections from pioneer class member, Joe Miko: "The thing I appreciate more about Fairfield is that it prepared you for life. You knew it wasn't going to be easy, easy. You weren't handed a diploma that automatically allowed you access to the inner circle of corporations. You had to work at it, but you did have your values. And you strived to keep those values."
