It is with great pleasure and overwhelming humility that I begin my tenure in this new role as president of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association Board of Directors. Our Alumni Association has celebrated many successes over the years, delivering strong programming and services while operating with a high level of financial strength and viability. This is due to the careful stewardship and professionalism of Vice President for Alumni Relations Tom Tillar and the entire staff who serve our alma mater.
It is because of all those accomplishments, and especially the dedication of Hokies around the world, that I am excited about what lies ahead for our association and all we might accomplish together. Our goal is to further advance the mission of the association and contribute to the overall success of our great university.
Unlike what you might find at other colleges, your membership in our Alumni Association requires no dues. I encourage you to take advantage of that and become engaged. Find an alumni chapter close to you. Volunteer and get involved in its activities, happy hours, and service projects. Help with the philanthropies that help fund projects for local communities or scholarships for the next class of Hokies. Come back to campus for reunions and activities hosted by the Alumni Association. Whatever you wish to do and however you wish to go about it, your goals can be accomplished with the support and camaraderie of your fellow alumni. Again, thank you for your service to the Virginia Tech Alumni Association and to our beloved alma mater. Go, Hokies!
In April, Cotillion Club alumni celebrated the 100th anniversary of the club's 1913 founding on campus. In 1970, the club transitioned into Pi Kappa Alpha, reactivating the fraternity's Epsilon chapter, which was originally founded on campus in 1873. The organization had a healthy rivalry with the German Club (founded in 1892), sponsoring formal dance weekends and jointly producing concerts.
