Our alumni can lay claim to every superlative adjective – Motivated! Dedicated! Generous! Involved!

Current Alumni Association president Joseph John, MHA, and incoming president Priscilla Guild, MSPH, have committed more than $21,000 for the School’s Alumni Association Scholarship. The association is now matching, dollar for dollar, a student government initiative to establish a Class of 2012 legacy scholarship. Thanks to students, staff and faculty members, and alumni who joined in their efforts, student government leaders already are funding a second $5,000 scholarship.

“Working with the class of 2012 Annual Fund Scholarship has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have had at the School,” says Clayton Velicer, student government co-president. “As a current student, I know how difficult it can be to secure financial aid. It is a wonderful feeling to know that through the generous support of current students, faculty members and alumni, a UNC public health student will have this kind of support.”
