Message from Ken Sullivan

Ken Sullivan It is my honor and privilege to represent the Alumni Association as a member of the Board of Trustees. I continue to be impressed by the work of the current administration in all it does to support students and engage alumni. As alumni, I believe it is our inherent responsibility to do what we can to support Lees-McRae by not only participating in college events, but by each of us making an annual gift that is affordable and sustainable to our personal budget. Come back home to Lees-McRae.
