Dear Alumni and Friends,
This past weekend Winchester celebrated its annual Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival. Shenandoah University was proudly represented in the Grand Feature Parade with the Cheer Squad, Buzzin’ Dozen Pep Band, and a gorgeous float. They were definitely one of the highlights of the parade for me!
The Alumni Association Board of Directors had its spring meeting just a few weeks ago. As a board, we heard about exciting things happening around the university through a meet and greet during breakfast with Senior Vice President and Vice President for Advancement Mitch Moore. We had an update on the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, recognized board members whose terms had come to an end, as well as voted in new members of the board of directors. I loved being together with a mixture of Shenandoah graduates who span all of the university’s various decades and schools. It’s so wonderful to see everyone come together for the common goal of advancing our Alumni Association and university.
Mark your calendars for the next alumni events that we hope you will join. The Alumni Networking Reception is on the move to Ashburn to reach out to our Northern Virginia alumni. Join us on Wednesday, May 22, at Pazzo Pomodoro to meet alumni, students, and staff for an evening of connecting, networking and fun. Also, on Saturday, June 8, join Shenandoah alumni at Luna Park in New York City for the first of three Swarm the Park events to be held this summer.
Finally, please join me in congratulating the newest members of our Alumni Association as they graduate on Saturday, May 18. Way to go graduates, and hats off to a job well done! We look forward to seeing you back at SU in the near future!
Ashley Smith Warren ’07
