The Alumni Association has implemented three Alumni Chapters throughout Georgia, The Golden Isles Blazer Club (St. Simons Area), The Middle Georgia Alumni Chapter, and the Atlanta Chapter. Our chapters have been working hard all year to connect with alumni in these areas and grow the Blazer Community. Events are planned throughout the year to keep VSU Alumni engaged across the state. Please take the time to join a chapter near you by contacting Fran Lundell (Vice President of Chapters) at firstname.lastname@example.org
Inaugural Atlanta Alumni Dinner & Scholarship Fundraiser
On January 25, the Alumni Chapter of Atlanta hosted the Inaugural Atlanta Alumni Dinner and Scholarship Fundraiser at Petite Auberge Restaurant in Buckhead. Dr. William J. McKinney served as the keynote speaker to more than 50 guests. Due to the hard work of the chapter members and generosity of the event sponsors, the Chapter raised $5,500! Funds raised through the alumni dinner will be used to award scholarships to Valdosta State University students from the Metro Atlanta area and promote additional fundraising activities through the Alumni Chapter of Atlanta.
