Greetings from the College of Nursing!
I am excited to inform you that our mentor-mentee program is in progress and we are in need to 10-12 additional alumni mentors. We have had an amazing response from the graduating class of May 2015 and we would like to meet their response! You may contact Addy Caprio at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is the current representative to the Alumni Association Board for the College of Nursing and the energy behind this program!
Another event we are looking forward to is Alumni Reunion Weekend, which will be held June 12-13, 2015. We have a number of classes that will be participating: 1965, 1970, and 1975. All classes that graduated prior to 1965 are welcome to come to the reunion. Please check the alumni web page for the schedule of events. During the All Alumni Luncheon on June 13, the University of Iowa Alumni Association will be recognizing Sally Mathis Hartwig with the Distinguished Alumni Award for Faculty-Staff Achievement 2015. She earned her bachelor degree in nursing from the College of Nursing in 1975 and a Masters in Nursing Service Administration from the college in 1977.
Leslie Jansa Williams will receive the Distinguished Alumni Award for Achievement 2015. Williams was born in Fort Dodge, Iowa, grew up in Gowrie, Iowa, and received her baccalaureate degree from the University of Iowa College of Nursing in 1982.
Best wishes for a productive winter and a most joyous holiday season!
