I’m feeling great about Lees-McRae. So many wonderful things are happening on campus that I confess not to know where to begin! I do not believe it is a secret that Lees-McRae College is emerging from a long spell of the doldrums… the website is full of current information, there is a monthly e-newsletter that has up-to-the minute news, and of course, the College issues great news and messages via mailings and events. The Bobcat Tales has come back as a monthly newsletter to faculty and staff.
When I’m out and about and people ask me how things are going on campus, I’m amused by their faces when I happily gush about LMC paying down debt in the current economy, by our having a new business model, the new School of Nursing and Allied Health, the current numbers out of Enrollment Management, alumni, friends and family events, Coffee and Conversation events, our grants writer—the first one employed full-time by the College since the 1980’s, student success in and out of the classroom, the beauty of campus, the Class of 1959 project in front of the North Carolina building, the Class Agent program, reunions and all yearbooks are available online. Yes, I’m talking about Lees-McRae College!
Don’t be so surprised—be so happy about Lees-McRae’s current emerging status in the Southeast that you tell all of your friends, your classmates, your church, your high schools. Be so happy about Lees-McRae that you stop by the Alumni House and enjoy a cup of coffee. Be proud of your connection to Lees-McRae!
