“Sometimes our light goes out but
is blown again into flame by an encounter with another human being.
Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this
inner light.” ~ Albert Schweitzer
Homecoming 2003 was a grand weekend of
ongoing activity! Our total count of attendees at the 42 Homecoming
events was 2,572 persons, and we applaud the efforts of all 182 individuals,
businesses, and organizations that made the weekend possible. If your
schedule allowed you the opportunity to come back to campus for Homecoming
2003, no doubt you experienced a rekindling of your own light….
Whether it was through conversations with old classmates, revisiting
old dorm or classrooms, recollections of wisdom passed down from professors
of college days, or all the above. Whatever re-energized you, I hope
you will share that excitement with others who couldn’t come back.
If you couldn’t be here, make an effort to get in touch with old
friends. In the weeks since Homecoming, we’ve received a large
number of alumni sign-ups for the class e-mail directories. Check out
your class list and if you have not yet listed your e-address there,
this is a good time to do so. Find your class list at http://www.sckans.edu/campus/directory/directory_alum.html.
Meanwhile, we hope to see you at future alumni gatherings
to help keep your light shining bright! If you would like more information
on alumni events and programs, please contact me at 800-846-1543, ext.
