More than anything, I am honored that you
have entrusted me with the leadership of the National Alumni
Association . My promise to you is that I will never knowingly
violate your trust, and will always act with integrity and
professionalism as the public face of the National Alumni
I have adopted the theme of
"Respect-Responsibility Results" and ask that all members
join with me in the same.
The University is in a crisis situation and
we must hit the ground running! With that said, we will
immediately begin working to repair, solidify, and build a
stronger infrastructure for our organization. This will
require all members to "get in where they fit in". I am open
to new ideas and "outside the box thinking".
We have numerous Ad Hoc Committees that will
need to be staffed with chairs and members. I ask is that you
objectively evaluate your skills and talents and find a
committee that has available positions where your talent can
be maximized for the benefit of the Association and Bethune-Cookman
University. Everyone has skills, talents, and connections we
can bring to the table.
I will rely heavily on the Board of
Directors and the Executive Board as we build on the successes
of the previous administration, such that the National Alumni
Association will become a reckoning force, positioned to carry
out its mission: SUPPORT OF BETHUNE COOKMAN UNIVERSITY!
In the spirit of Dr. Mary McLeod
President, National Alumni Association
Bethune-Cookman University, Inc.
