It’s hard to believe that it’s already Christmas Eve. I want to take just a moment to wish you happiness, peace, joy and yes HEALTH!
In this season of gratitude, I want to thank the Executive Committee, Alumni Council, and all Lions who have volunteered or in any way - large or small - to support the AALU to make 2021 a success. This gratitude extends over the previous and current administrations as we have all taken concrete steps to achieve our mission and advance and support the mission of Lincoln University.
I would say that 2021 brought unprecedented challenges, except that we saw these same challenges in 2020. Still, I cannot tell you how glad it makes me feel that we are figuring it out. From supporting the hybrid commencement in May and to our July 2021 in-person successful golf tournament to our (mostly) on-campus homecoming activities and arch rededication in October, we are meeting this moment in a way that keeps our alumni and campus community safe.
As the calendar turns to 2022, watch your email for the details! We will start with a New Year’s virtual prayer service to cover us. And we’ll move on to our in-person CIAA events, including a Day Party fundraiser; and then to a May commencement and Alumni weekend that we hope to be fully in person this year; and of course to our in-person July 2022 golf tournament. There is nothing quite like the energy and excitement created by Lions ROARING wherever we are. And while uncertainty certainly remains, we are committed to being stronger than ever.
So as the holidays approach, I hope you will take time to rest, relax and reconnect with family and loved ones. And, to the entire Lincoln University family — our President, Board of Trustees, students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and friends — I wish you a healthy and safe holiday season and a Happy New Year.
