A LETTER FROM THE ALUMni ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT
Welcome, Alumni! In this section of the website, you will find many resources and opportunities that are just for you. Please take advantage of the opportunity to connect, re-connect and network with fellow alums. The calendar of events will help you stay current with events, programs and exhibitions designed specifically for Moore alumni. You can also connect via Moore’s Facebook page to receive news and update.
As Moore alum, you have a built-in support system that continues beyond your graduation year. This is a life-long relationship that I hope you use. Please take the time to click through the website and keep in touch with alumni news and exhibitions. Read some of the inspirational stories of Moore graduates. Send your news and updates. We want to hear from you!
I am honored to lead the Alumni Council and hope to continue the amazing examples set by the admirable women that have preceded me in this role. The Council continues to work toward new initiatives for recent alums, as well as opportunities and events for all alumni.
Moore is a special place for me. It is the place in which my entire life’s path took a positive turn. The education, support, experience and personal relationships I gained at Moore are invaluable. That is why it is so important for me to give back to this community. By supporting Moore through annual giving, I am ensuring Moore can continue to provide quality education to students pursuing careers in the visual arts. Without the support of alumni contributions, people like me would not have access to a Moore education. Your gift, no matter the amount, will have great impact. I encourage each of you to give to Moore as a way of giving back this year.
Lastly, please get involved, encouraged other alum to get involved and stay connected! Please feel free to contact me, or our director of alumni affairs, with your thoughts or suggestions. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you all soon.
