Hello fellow Bobcats!
I am honored and privileged to be serving as your Lees-McRae College Alumni Board President. It is amazing to be working with an Alumni Board that is active, well organized and effectively working together for the betterment of the Lees-McRae experience for students. As president, I am committed to maintaining the established partnership with the College and develop innovative services that meet the needs of our global Alumni base and increase our level of commitment to the College.
You should have already received this year’s save-the-date postcard with a magnet, and you can see there are lots of exciting things happening for our Alumni. Class reunions, local events around the Southeast, the Grand Opening of the Daniel and Dianne May Wildlife Center, and finally, Homecoming are just a few events happening at our Alma Mater. If you haven’t visited the Lees-McRae College Campus lately, I invite you to do so. Our campus in the majestic mountains has been elevated even higher with beautification projects and updated facilities. I hope you will join us at Homecoming and reunite your connections!
We are also elevating Alumni Frolic Week. It is under construction, and a special team has been appointed to overhaul the concept of this week to make it affordable and engaging for alumni. I am looking forward to an exciting Summer 2013 for LMC Alumni.
I’d like to challenge you to elevate your level of engagement! Make a gift in an amount comfortable to your budget each year to the LMC Fund, participate in Homecoming festivities, host an event in your town, become an alumni mentor to a current student or volunteer to serve as a class agent for your class. There are many ways you can participate and become an active member of your Alumni Association.
And finally, I would like to welcome the most recent graduates of Lees-McRae College into our Alumni Association. You are now members of our Alumni Family! Thanks for your service and commitment to the College. I look forward to hearing from our newest Alumni, as well as those who have been Alumni for quite some time. I also look forward to meeting you at upcoming events, reminiscing about our experiences at LMC and looking ahead to the future of the College together!
