Every five years at Reunion, each class elects officers who serve as the executive committee of the class. These officers are: class president, vice president and class correspondent. Their primary responsibility as class leaders is to help keep classmates involved and engaged with each other and with the College. The Office of Advancement and your classmates appreciate your enthusiasm and dedication. Be sure to contact us if you have any questions.
