NVC Alumni and Friends Update - Summer 2012

In this issue: 

 

Message from Jackie

Hello Wildcats, 

jackie2012-180x240Welcome to the first edition of the Northwest Vista College Alumni and Friends Update. We want to help you stay connected with the College through news and services available to graduates of NVC. This May, nearly 500 graduates walked the stage becoming the15th graduating class at NVC. I know you join me in congratulating the Class of 2012 on their accomplishments and in welcoming them to our distinguished community of alumni.

I hope that regardless of when you graduated, you will find this update useful. I encourage you to get involved by sending us your own recent accomplishments, asking us questions or telling us how we can better serve NVC graduates. Send us your information and comments at NVC-Alumni@alamo.edu. The college continues to grow, but our mission to keep Creating Opportunities for Success remains the same. All the best this summer from everyone here at The Vista. 

Jackie Claunch
President
