Alumni & Friends
Greetings, Dear UNCG Alumni, Friends, Faculty and Staff!By the time you receive this issue of UNCG Nursing, we will have completed our 2011-2012 academic year and be almost through our 2012 - 2013 year. It has been a time of wondrous excitement, great happenings, sorrowful losses - and a time of hope for tomorrow's bright promise as we enter a new chapter in the life of this school. We are fortunate not only to have greatly benefited from over two decades of strong and visionary leadership from Dean Lynne Pearcey who retires in June,but also eagerly anticipate the arrival of our new dean, Dr. Robin Remsburg. While change is inevitable, we embrace it as we preserve the constants we value - dedicated faculty, staff, our energetic and talented students and always, the critical support for private funds to ensure the continuing excellence of our school in its mission and vision.
We are delighted and grateful to recognize and thank those alumni, parents, corporations, foundations and friends of UNCG School of Nursing who have made gifts, pledges, pledge payments, and planned gifts between July 1, 2011 and December 31, 2012. Thank you for giving back at whatever dollar level. In this time period we have achieved the establishment of several funds including the SON Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship Fund and its Charter Membership. This fund now provides several scholarships for both pre-licensure and graduate nursing students. We have reached the endowment level for the Dean's Faculty Professional Development Fund (Dean Pearcey's Legacy Fund) and we are in the midst of creating a special CRNA Endowed Scholarship Fund through charter membership. Every single day we have reason to be grateful to many generous donors who support our Annual Fund - whose gifts help provide additional student scholarship monies, program support for students and faculty in education, research and practice and interprofessional collaboration.
It is my privilege and honor to work on behalf of the SON and to know so many of our alumni and dear friends. Heartfelt thanks and celebration for your continued interest and support.
From the School of Nursing, our very best wishes to you all!
Director of Development
