SUU In View (Alumni Magazine - Spring 2003)
New Years Greetings to all SUU Alumni and Friends
When a friend of mine turned 40 years of age, she received a greeting card which said on the cover, "time marches on" and when opening the card the inscription continued, "YOUR FACE!" While it is impossible to turn back the clock of our lives it is possible to learn from the past and hopefully improve future performance.
It has been said that those who refuse to study the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them. As we review the year 2002, we are grateful for lessons we have learned as well as the growth we have experienced, and look forward to the opportunities the New Year will bring.
We in the J. Reuben Clark Jr. Alumni House are enjoying the renovation that was completed in August and are also enjoying being so close to the art exhibits in the large rooms. We invite you to stop by, visit and enjoy the wonderful artwork displayed here.
With flourishing, active alumni chapters in Las Vegas, Salt Lake and Iron County, we are in the final stages of organizing a chapter in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Our short term goals are to organize chapters in Washington County and Utah County. Additionally we have also had alums in Denver, Colorado and Connecticut make inquiry about how they can organize chapters in their areas as well. While we may not be able to travel to far distant in the New Year and look forward to serving you wherever you are.
I am convinced that Southern Utah University has absolutely the best Alumni to be found anywhere. No matter where we visit we find enthusiasm, loyalty and commitment to SUU. We are energized by you and are excited to visit with you. We invite you to participate in the programs and activities of the University and the Alumni Association as well. We wish you happiness and success in the New Year.
