Introducing the Alumni Association's New Board President

Dear Fellow Alumni:

The fall semester is off to a great start and the campuses are buzzing with activity. A record freshmen class of 4,226 was welcomed in August, helping push our overall enrollment to just over 25,000 students.
When I graduated in 1978, I had no idea that in 2014 Grand Valley would play such a large role in my life.  As an alumni board member for the past 6 years and now as your new President of the Alumni Association, I am very thankful to be a part of this growing and vibrant institution that we call our alma mater. 
It is my hope that in the coming months, no matter where you live, you will find some time in your schedule to connect or reconnect with Grand Valley in your own way. Maybe you take part in an alumni club event, make a gift, or volunteer in the name of GV. No matter what you choose, your participation is vital in keeping the Laker legacy alive.

I look forward to serving the university and meeting many of you at our various events. Remember, together we can make a difference in the future of Grand Valley.

Go Lakers!
