On behalf of the University of Mississippi School of Nursing alumni chapter, I would like to thank each one of you for supporting our school. We have well over 60 years of school heritage and 50 years of alumni chapter heritage, and I look forward to 50 more. I would like to also thank all the nursing alumni board members serving with me. We closed 2011 with great social functions and tailgates. 2012 has been a great year so far, with our annual meeting, class celebrations and Oglevee Papers Day, and much more is to come.
I would like a minute to answer a few frequently asked questions, as well as encourage more:
Q. How much are the dues?
A. Membership in the nursing alumni chapter is free.
Q. Who can come to the annual meeting?
A. All are invited and encouraged to attend.
Q. If it’s not my class anniversary or reunion year, can I come to functions?
A. Yes, all classes, all years are always invited to all functions. The more, the merrier.
Q. How can I stay in touch and up to date?
A. http://www.umc.edu/son, http://alumni.umc.edu, Facebook, phone and e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) are all great ways to stay in the loop.
Q. How can I update my contact information?
A. E-mail us (email@example.com) or call us 601-984-1115.
Again, I would like to see all graduates of our school get involved and see what’s out there for you. Let’s reconnect and celebrate the progress and contributions of all of our family. If we can be of any assistance, please let us know. Thanks for all that each one of you does every day. I am honored to serve.
