Peter Casey, Alumnus of the Year

The SFSU Alumni Association has selected Peter Casey, the Emmy Award-winning co-creator and executive producer of "Frasier," as the 2002 Alumnus of the Year. Casey, a 1975 graduate in radio and television, found Hollywood success first as a writer, and then as a producer. In 1985, he teamed up with David Lee and David Angell to create "Cheers," one of the most successful sitcoms in television history. The three went on to create, produce and write "Frasier."

Casey, a seven-time Emmy winner, has also given back to the University through his support of the Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts (BECA) Department. He makes financial contributions to the department on a regular basis, visits writing classes and held a BECA alumni event on the set of "Frasier."

The annual Alumnus of the Year award goes to former SFSU students who have gained recognition for significant contributions to their field of work. Casey will receive his award at Commencement on Saturday, May 25, in Cox Stadium.
