LETTER FROM THE EDITOR


I would like to thank everyone who has supported the College and our students so far this academic year. We've had some great meetings and Moving Forward Capital Campaign events that have taken me and members of the Institutional Advancement team to Syracuse, New Orleans, Boynton Beach, and Naples. It's been exciting getting to know you. We appreciate your engagement and value your time. You are making an immediate impact and setting an example for future alumni.
 

In the months ahead, there will be more opportunities for alumni and friends to show support and reconnect in North Carolina. Check out the Capital Campaign Update section below for more details.
 

Also, we're all looking forward to Reunion Weekend in Albany June 1-3.
 

Thanks again for your continued support! I hope to see you soon.
 

Regards,
 

Bill Jabour
Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

ACPHS graduates Colin and Sarah Price '02 took a life-changing journey to the Caribbean Island of Hispanolia last summer. This medical mission opened their eyes to  how a helping hand and a little hope can touch a life in a way one would never imagine.
