LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

 

Summer at ACPHS is buzzing with opportunity.


From campus renovation projects and summer research programs, to the 19th annual President's Cup Golf Tournament and sneak preview days and campus tours, the College truly does not take a summer vacation. We're constantly assessing, preparing, reinvesting, and strategically planning for the academic year and beyond. And we're having fun, meeting new people, and learning a lot along the way!


The July 30 President's Cup Golf Tournament was a huge success, raising more than $40,000 (up $5,000 from last year). The Endowment for Excellence Scholarship Fund has generated over $630,000 since the first golf event in 1994. Congratulations to this year's Endowment for Excellence Scholarship recipient, Sarah DiVello. Sarah is one of six students who will be receiving financial support through the generosity of President's Cup supporters.

 

I hope to see you soon at some of our upcoming alumni events. Check out the line-up we have planned for you from August through October in the Upcoming Events section below. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email me at alumni@acphs.edu. I wish you all the best. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

 

Regards,

 

Bill Jabour 

Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN UPDATE    

  Athletics Field
The Panther Project - the $2.5 million renovation to the athletics track and field - is in full swing with the new synthetic turf expected to be installed by week's end. Phase I of the project is scheduled to be complete by the time student's return to campus on August 22.

 


We still need your support as we complete Phase I and look to Phase II!  A great way to donate is by purchasing a stadium seat for $1,000 in your name or in honor of a loved one. That's what
John Denio, Interim Provost did! Read more.
