Remember what it was like when you first came to Baptist College of Health Sciences and how helpful it was to have the wisdom and insights of alumni? If you’ve forgotten, maybe it’s time to reconnect on April 27 and 28, starting with the Memphis Redbirds baseball game.
Even if you are well into your career, rubbing elbows with former classmates can be very beneficial. Take it from Cathy Stepter, RN, acting graduate program chair and associate professor of nursing. She received her diploma in nursing in 1992 and is looking forward to the upcoming reunion for many reasons.
“Being an active alum gives you the chance to reconnect with those from your class, as well as to make new relationships with old and new alumni,” she says. “You can learn about what’s going on at the College and support its efforts on many levels: spiritually, socially and financially, as well as through word-of-mouth to those you know seeking a profession in the health care field. There are also excellent opportunities if you wish to serve as a mentor to a student or connect in other ways with the College. Staying connected is one of our goals, and alumni are some of our greatest ambassadors.”
