After a wonderful lunch and visiting with friends both old and new, the group was called to order by Leadership Board President, Mrs. Annie Hunter Galloway. University President, Dr. Stuart Bell, spoke to the group about his trip to Washington D.C. with our 2015 National Championship football team and Coach Nick Saban to meet President Obama.
Mrs. Amy Baker-Parton gave a development update and Dean Boschung spoke about the UA's Strategic Plan, the speakers for the Crenshaw Leadership Academy, and other current events and accomplishments of our college.
Mr. Daniel Womble, an athletic training student and Crenshaw fellow, thanked the group for their investment in students' lives and assured them their investment would not return void. Dr. Elizabeth Roberts spoke about her research on Preventing Drug Abuse Through Early Childhood Interventions and Dr. Linda Knol explained the new Culinary Medicine Initiative. Dr. Mary Kay Meyer told the group about plans for the new electronic edition of our cookbook, "Nothing But The Best".
Thanks to all who came from far and near on such a cold and dreary day!
