alumni letter

A letter from the Wofford College Alumni Association

New president of the alumni council wants you to know how you can get involved.

I am pleased to introduce myself as the Wofford College Alumni Association president, the first popularly elected president of the association. A native of West Columbia, S.C., and a 1983 Wofford graduate, I have more than 30 years of experience in higher education, specifically in financial aid administration. I currently serve as manager of technology services for the Office of Student Financial Services at Midlands Technical College. I have served as a board member of the Pink and Green Community Service Foundation and Teach the Truth Ministries, and I have been a loyal member of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority for 36 years.

I could not be prouder of the college’s accomplishments. Wofford College’s transformative educational opportunities have resulted in more than 16,700 living alumni who excel in various careers and who are making their communities better places. The alumni board represents each and every one of you, and we are eager to enthusiastically serve our college and students with your help. My mission as board president is to engage Wofford alumni in a manner that honors the past, present and future of the institution, while pursuing new initiatives, new faces and making a new commitment to alumni awareness and the association. I hope to gain a new connection with current students, who I like to think of as “future alumni.” 

We will continue to work toward building a strong Wofford network, increasing alumni engagement, fostering student recruitment and raising support for the college through advancement. Lifelong engagement with the college offers opportunities to have fun, meet lots of great people and give back to your alma mater! Here are a few specific things you can do to help:

  • Attend alumni events.
  • Consider Wofford graduates for jobs or internship experiences.
  • Visit the campus and talk with students about your career.
  • Visit the Wofford website so you can talk with others about what’s happening on campus.
  • Encourage potential Terriers to choose Wofford by sharing your memories and experiences with them.
  • Organize an alumni gathering or game watch party.

There’s much more to come, and the Wofford College Alumni Association invites your participation. Visit wofford.edu/alumni/WCAA to learn more. Also feel free to contact me at suttonv88@gmail.com or Debbi Thompson ’88, director of alumni and parents programs, at thompsondn@wofford.edu to get involved.
