• Homecoming was held back in April and participant numbers were up across the all colleges. We had over 70 attendees at the CAHS Alumni Dinner and presented 3 student scholarships and the Distinguished Alumni Award, which went to Sue Ward from the Dental Hygiene Department. The Alumni Office has met with each of the Deans' offices for suggestions on Homecoming and will make changes to incorporate more enterprise-wide activities and as well as more family-friendly activities to entice younger alumni.
• Susan Barcus is the new SVP for Advancement and Community Relations and she will begin on June 13th. She will be over all of development, alumni affairs, special events and advancement services. Once Mrs. Barcus is in place, interviews for an Associate VP of Community Relations (which is over Alumni Affairs) should begin. Finally the Alumni Office will be fully staffed after the hire of a 2nd alumni affairs coordinator, which is ongoing now.
• Currently the Alumni Office is finishing the planning stages for next year's Alumni Association calendar and budget. We will be sending out dues reminders in July to encourage alumni to sign up for an annual or lifetime membership and our next event will be a table at CAHS Orientation in August.
