Alumni Notebook News from the KSC Alumni Association
A Call to Action
Over the past 100 years, Keene State College has been shaped not only by our passionate faculty, engaged students, and talented administrators, but also by thousands of alumni who have shared the proverbial "time, talent, and treasure" to advance the institution.
While we regularly celebrate the generosity of those who support the College financially, we seldom applaud those individuals who so generously give their time and talent. Alumni volunteers provide highly valuable service each year to the College.
Here are just a few examples of how Keene State alumni volunteer to advance the College's mission:
With the administration's commitment to strengthening Keene State's support for alumni and parent relations – including our new Alumni Center, now just a few months from opening its doors – we are engaging more alumni in more ways.
How can you plug into one or more of these visions for the increased role of alumni in the KSC community?
By volunteering, you can help connect our College and its students with the extended community. Alumni participation, an expression of college pride, has a huge effect on students' educational experience and career paths. Alumni are KSC's most valuable assets. You are key to the success of our programs and our students.
As we start our second century of service, the Keene State College Alumni Association – in fact, the entire KSC community – needs you. President Giles-Gee and her leadership team are looking to us, the graduates of Keene State, to help lead our College to being one of the finest public liberal arts colleges in the country. Your time, talent, and treasure will help us get there.
What will you do to help?
Please call (603-358-2370) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) Patty Farmer, director of alumni and parent relations, and let her know you are willing to help.
