Congratulations Ambassadors on celebrating 30 years of service! It wasn’t too long ago that, with fellow Ambassadors, I was leading tours of the University during orientation or stocking up on Ramen Noodles for the Spirit Cup food drive. While time has quickly passed, my days as a student representative for ECU were certainly exciting and I take away so many memories of good friends. Our service to the University and the community was and remains special, and I am grateful, as I know all of you are, to have had the opportunity to be part of such a unique organization.
I hope you’ll be able to join your fellow Ambassadors and the East Carolina Alumni Association the weekend of September 24-26 as we celebrate 30 years of Ambassador service to ECU. We’ve got a weekend full of fun activities, including the Scholarship Auction, Golf Tournament, Social at Ham’s Restaurant and Brewhouse, and After Party at the Home of former Ambassadors, Derek ’98 and Heather ’97 Stepp.
If you’re already a member of the Alumni Association, thank you for your support! If you’re not a member, I encourage you to complete the tax-deductible membership registration form to take advantage of special member pricing for Reunion activities. Help us meet our goal of 10,000 members in 2010!
I look forward to seeing you this fall, and please contact the Alumni Association at 800-ECU-GRAD with any questions.
Best Wishes and Go Pirates!
