Spring Time

It appears that Spring might really be just around the corner and that we’re through with snow, ice and extremely cold temperatures in Southeast Idaho. Things really start to pick up after Spring Break.

For the ISU Alumni Association and the Office of Alumni Relations, we’re getting ready for the April 14, 2017 Alumni Board of Directors meeting in Pocatello. Six new board members will be elected to replace retiring board members Jamie Bell, Greg Bosen, Craig Hobdey, Dustin Mortimer, Deb Thompson and Josh Whitworth. The departure of this specific group of board members leaves very large shoes to fill. They have been amazing leaders and actively engaged in so many areas of board activities. They will be missed but we’re pretty sure they’ll still find ways to stay involved.

The Alumni Association will host their annual Outstanding Student Achievement Awards reception and ceremony on Wednesday, April 26, 2017. Twelve amazing students will be recognized for their personal accomplishments, academic achievement and involvement. Both the reception and the ceremony will be held in the Stephens Performing Arts Center starting at 6:00pm. There is no charge for attendance and alumni, students, faculty, staff, friends and family members are welcome to attend this very special event.

1901, our Student Alumni group has several activities planned. They will be hosting a breakfast at the Magnuson Alumni House March 31st, participating in the Alumni Mentoring Lunch with the Career Center on April 4th, hosting a BBQ for Alumni Board members following their board meeting on Friday, April 14th in the backyard of the Magnuson Alumni House and providing their annual “Finals Breakfast” for students also at the Alumni House.
