Boeing's Long Beach assembly line was rocked by the Trojan Spirit June 3, 2009 as more than 250 Boeing employees who are also USC alumni attended a reception to celebrate the USC/Boeing association.

The event was co-hosted by USC Marshall School of Business, USC Viterbi School of Engineering and The Boeing Company, and featured Marshall's Dean Ellis and Viterbi's Dean Yannis C. Yortsos who updated the alum on their respective schools and thanked them for their ongoing support.

USC alumnus Rick Stephens, who is also Boeing's Senior vice president of Human Relations and Administration addressed the USC alumni and encouraged them to stay connected to the school and give back, specifically encouraging alumni to take advantage of Boeing's matching gift program.

Highlighting the event was a guest appearance by a 10-person element of The USC Trojan band, which performed a number of Trojan favorites to the appreciative crowd.
