A letter from the president:

Dear Fellow Alumni,

Kimberly M. Ogden, president, Education Alumni Council

Kimberly M. Ogden, president, Education Alumni Council

As the newly elected president, I am excited for this moment to reach out to our alumni and share our cursory plans for the coming year. We plan to host several events and would invite you to join us to watch a game, explore some of the local breweries, or perhaps get involved, at the ground level, in a mentoring initiative being considered by the council. What better way to foster the professional growth of a fellow educator than to become a mentor? Our profession is one that fosters student growth from the early years into adulthood, and your expertise can be priceless, if offered to an aspiring educator. Let us know if you would like to more information.

I would also invite you to become involved in our programming efforts by joining the Alumni Council or the Friends of the School of Education. We would welcome your ideas and input. Do networking events interest you? How about professional development opportunities? Please be in touch with the Development and Alumni Relations office, if you are interested in learning more about either.

Sincerely,

Kimberly M. Ogden Signature

Kimberly M. Ogden
(B.A. ’94, M.Ed. ’10, Ed.D. ’14)
