Alumni Newsletter |May 2016
"And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns." (Philippians 1:6)

Greetings CUW Alumnus/a,
 
As we come to the close of another academic year and graduation, I would like to welcome those joining the CUW Alumni family. As stated in Philippians above I know that God will continue his work in you as you enter the world. In this newsletter you will hopefully find things of interest to you and ways to stay connected with Concordia in the future. Make sure to update your information and preferred email so we can continue to connect with you regarding events, professional development, alumni resources and information about your Alma mater.

There are many events planned through the rest of 2016. Make sure to review the dates and locations on the left side bar so you can join us and other CUW alumni in the fun activities. There are also opportunities for you to volunteer and participate in professional development, so we encourage to review the information in this e-newsletter. 

I look forward to seeing you at one of the many events we have planned for our alumni. As always, please let us know how we can serve you and if you have any ideas to share.

Wishing us all God's guidance and blessings,
 
Michelle "Mickie" Wagner
Director of Alumni & Parent Relations

(Tickets donated by Milwaukee Bucks' announcer and Grace Lutheran member, Ted Davis.)
THANK YOU to all of you who took time to complete the alumni survey sent out during the month of April. Your Opinions Do Matter and we will be using the data collected to help us better serve our alumni and students and their experiences with Concordia as a whole.
