    ROCHESTER-Louis G. Anastos, a 1989 graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology's Kate Gleason College of Engineering, was one of 24 alumni inducted last month to the college's Wall of Fame. Anastos, a resident of Monroe, and the others were the inaugural class so recognized for their contributions to engineering, science and RIT. "We are all in your debt," RIT President Albert Simone told the group of alumni. The Wall of Fame is located in Gordon Atrium in RIT's James E. Gleason Building. Upon graduation from RIT in 1989 with a bachelor of science degree in microelectronic engineering, Anastos went to work at IBM in East Fishkill. He began his career as a photolithography engineer in the Advanced Semiconductor Technology' Center. In 1998, he was promoted to a first level manager. In 2001 he was promoted to Photolithography/Metrology Senior Project Manager of IBM's new 300mm facility. That same year, he was named a distinguished alumnus by his college. Locally, Anastos is active in his local Greek community and enjoys his family time with his wife, Tina, and children, Heleena and George. Founded in 1829, RIT enrolls 15,300 students in more than 340 undergraduate and graduate programs. RIT has one of the nation's oldest and largest cooperative education programs.
