Raida (’84) and Todd McConnell (’86)

Raida and Todd met when she, a Strutter, agreed to help with choreography for his fraternity’s routine for the annual Christmas Sing-Song. Todd swears that the moment Raida arrived at the rehearsal, he saw “a beam of light.” Todd looked at his best friend and said, “I don’t know who that girl is, but I am going to marry her.” Todd was true to his word, and the couple has been married for 35 years. They have two children.
