a message from
the alumni association board
annie stewart '11
alumni association board chair
dear mpa alumni,
i am once again blown away by what mpa alumni can do, and the impact they can have on their community. alumni participation for the 2016–17 year far exceeded my expectations, and i want to share some highlights: 27 percent of alumni who participated in the alumni challenge had never given to the campaign, and 44 percent had not given in three or more years. we raised just over $23,799 for the alumni challenge, which was more than a $5,000 increase from the previous year. finally, overall alumni giving participation grew from 10 percent to 13 percent, which is higher than the national average! thank you so much, panthers!
i hope you will all join me in celebrating our success from last year, but also look toward the future success of mpa. as mpa continues to grow and change, it needs the support of the entire community—especially of alumni! i encourage you to see it as a privilege to be able to make sure mpa is here for generations to come.
as a prek teaching assistant, i work with mpa students as they are beginning their educational journey, and within our class of 14 i see the impact your donations, time, and resources have on our students. our work in the classroom would not be possible without your support.
every day, i see that the mpa community is a sum of all of its parts—students, parents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty, staff, and the facilities. all of these parts go into making the community parents talk about, and i am so excited to see how your support as alumni can help positively shape the lives of our current and future students!
