Saying Thanks! by Celebrating our Successes

On November 4, 1998 the Alumni Association Board Members hosted an event at the faculty club to recognize our 1998 Alumni Award and Scholarship recipients, and to express our appreciation to the many partnerships that have been formed with the Association.

Approximately 100 participated in the celebration that enabled a number of the 23 Alumni Association scholarship recipients to interact with board members, volunteers, mentors, sponsors of Alumni special events, as well as members of the University community including the Association's Student Alumni representatives.

Volunteers are vital to a successful Alumni Association. We appreciate and recognize the efforts of the Association's Board Members, Branch Representatives, Reunion Class Agents, Mentors, Special Event Sponsors and all the other volunteer aspects that convey the pride of the University of Saskatchewan. Scholarship recipients benefit by meeting the advocates of our institution as well as glean knowledge of how they too can become University ambassadors by participating in the Association's Student Alumni programs.

The celebration proved to be most successful and beneficial and plans for next year's Celebrating Our Successes are in the works.
