Greetings Magician Family,
It is with great honor that I introduce myself as the LeMoyne-Owen College National Alumni Association (LOCNAA) President for the 2020-2022 administration. The year 2020 started with a bang and we were certain 2020 was a clear sign of all good things to come. Just as the spring began, we were greeted with the Coronavirus and the devastation that it brought. We have been forced to operate outside of what we considered normal, wearing masks to protect ourselves, practicing social distancing and so much more. We now must rely on the use of social media, Zoom communication, and other platforms to continue to do the work that is required to be of service to our Alma Mater.
During this administration we will continue to be committed to the ‘4 Big Rocks’ as we move forward with the association:
· Membership – reuniting with alumni to create a stronger base of support for the college
· Magician Magic – using our power to promote exciting activities and events for alumni around the country and world
· Fundraising – encouraging alumni and community partners to support the association assisting with development of fundraising opportunities
· Recruitment – educating high school seniors and community college students on the benefits of selecting our alma mater as their school of choice
LeMoyne-Owen College (LOC) has provided more than 150 years of high-quality educational opportunities to students resulting in alumni in various careers, including: physicians, nurses, lawyers, entrepreneurs, artists, designers, community leaders, teachers, professors, administrators, computer experts, and more.
I encourage you to get active and involved. LOC needs us and the alumni association needs you. Please fill out the contact card so we will have your contact information to stay in touch.
