Alumni and Community Newsletter
Spring Has Arrived

The older I get the longer, colder, and darker winter seems to be. I think I was hibernating, dreaming of the warm sun, and that is why I missed sending out a February e-newsletter. Hopefully, this one is so packed full of updates, events, and stories that it will make up for missing a month! Please keep sending me your alumni news to share – we love hearing from you.
