Reunion Committees

We are looking for volunteers to serve as members of your reunion planning committee. Minimal time commitment is required, and your help will make a tremendous impact on the success of the weekend's festivities. Responsibilities include reaching out to classmates to encourage attendance, finding new and updated information for our "lost" alumni, and helping with your class reunion giving effort.
If you are interested in joining your reunion planning committee, please see below and contact Jamie Scott. Thank you in advance for your participation, we are eager to get started!
