In a recent article in The Citizen, David P. Mamuscia, MAAA ’64, spoke praises of his time at Auburn Community College. “Without ACC I could not have attended college. It was affordable. I could live at home, keep a part-time job and attend classes. I found the instructional approach was ideal and very comprehensive. I learned how to study and be a good student. I have said this many times to many people: I could have handled the job challenges of my career as an actuary from what I learned in my mathematics classes at ACC. While I did go on to earn bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Eastern Michigan University, as a practical matter, nothing else was necessary. ACC gave me all that I really needed to know.”

I had the pleasure of reminiscing with Mr. Mamuscia last month about his time at ACC. Dr. Skinner was president of the college then, and Dr. Brunell was a student advisor. He shared that Dr. Thomas Young was an outstanding instructor and had a profound effect on his education. One of his most poignant memories was learning of President Kennedy’s death while at school. “A few hundred students filed in to the lounge area listening to the radio report on a Friday afternoon in 1963; everyone was stunned, you could have heard a pin drop.”

David retired in 1997 from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan, after a thirty-year career holding various executive level positions in Actuarial and Underwriting Services. He served as the Midwest Region Consulting Actuary for Mercer, March McLennan from 2001 until 2008 and was the Director of Underwriting and Chief Actuary prior to that. Dave also provided actuarial consulting services to the Detroit Medical Center and Humana through his own company, Mamuscia Consulting Services.

Following his graduation from ACC, Dave left for Michigan to further his education by earning his bachelor and master’s degrees from Eastern Michigan University, majoring in mathematics. Some of his volunteer positions include past Treasurer of the Eastern Michigan University Alumni Board of Directors and past Chairman of the Finance Committee for the EMU Foundation Board of Directors.

Dave is an avid senior softball player, playing in over 200 games each year and playing in tournaments in several states. His team recently won a national tournament in Dalton, Georgia. He served as commissioner of two major senior softball leagues. He currently works as a part-time Consulting Actuary for D.R.M. Stakor & Associates and Hylant Company, which are employee benefit consulting companies based in Michigan. Dave and his wife Maxine currently reside in The Villages, Florida. Dave has two adult children, Julie (Dearborn, Mich.) and John (Denver, Colo.) and a granddaughter Emme (Denver, Colo.).
