General Body Meeting Review & Alumni Spotlight
In September 2017, our Fall general body was held.  We offered an online webex option for you, and it was widely successful.  Dean Tofade spoke and gave us updates about the College, and especially emphasized the need for Alumni Giving, and continued involvement in student interviews.  Thank you to the student volunteers, Dr. Gentles, and especially to Dr. Kim Rains, our webex moderator.  Thanks to all who attended.
If you are interesting in volunteering for Student Interviews, we have streamlined the process. Click here.  You will walk away with a smile.
Next, is our new Alumni Spotlight, featuring Alumnus and HUCOP Faculty, Dr. Imbi Drame.  Thank you Dr. Kimberly Miller, our reporter, for your labor of love on this project.
