Alumni Association looking for new officers and class representatives

Many of you reconnected with friends this past weekend at our annual Alumni Weekend. We were happy to see you walk the halls of SLA again. 

The class with the largest turnout was the honor class of 1978, celebrating their 40th reunion. A couple of members of the class of 1988 proudly showed up with their letter jackets.

The classes that typically have the best attendance returning for Alumni Weekend are those that have an active class representative who contacts each former student from their class. If you'd like to be a class representative, please contact Shauna Neidigh at development@mysla.org or (978) 368-8544, ext. 108.

According to the bylaws of the Alumni Association, it's time to elect officers. Most of our current officers are stepping down from their roles. We are looking for a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Webmaster for a one-year term. The officers plan the Alumni Weekend, any communication to the alumni and other events at their discretion. If you are interested in giving back to your alma mater in one of these capacities, please contact Shauna Neidigh at development@mysla.org or (978) 368-8544, ext. 108.

Plan now to attend next year's Alumni Weekend on Oct. 11-13, 2019. We will be honoring the classes of 1944, 1949, 1954, 1959, 1964, 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009, 2004, 2014.
