The inaugural Alumni Board Service Project took place on March 29 at the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge in Baltimore. Members of the Alumni Board prepared dinner for a group of individuals receiving local cancer treatments, along with their caregivers. Coordinated by the Alumni Board’s Engagement Committee, the event was a great success. According to Committee Chair Blaire Miller ’05, the experience “really brought us closer together but it also shows our commitment to the community.” The committee intends to host an annual service project and to support the efforts of service initiatives developed by Stevenson students.
Alumni volunteers received a generous donation of food from Terra’s Kitchen to prepare that evening. Thanks to the generosity of two members of the company’s marketing team, Jaime Elwood ’01 and Mike Tyler ’02, ingredients were supplied for a chicken dish that was served to 40 guests. Following the meal preparation, volunteers were able to sit down and enjoy dinner with the guests residing at Hope Lodge. This event truly demonstrates the meaningful impact that can result when our alumni continue to engage with their alma mater.
