  • Welcome from the Alumni President
    to your times at Ferrum you will realize that it took not only your tuition to make those happen but also the gifts from alumni and friends of Ferrum Each donor wanted to make a difference and I am challenging each of you to also make a difference in a deserving student s life and give them a chance at the same opportunities we had We don t realize how important the alumni giving percentage is in the eyes of other donors and businesses that would want to invest in Ferrum College If the alumni choose not to support Ferrum then why would others want to make gifts The size of the gift doesn t matter when looking at the alumni giving percentage it s the fact you made a gift Lastly the Alumni Board of Directors is tasked with selecting worthy candidates for the Distinguished Alumni Award that is given out annually at Homecoming The criteria for selection can be found at http www ferrum edu giving to ferrum alumni family programs get involved html Please review this page and send us eligible candidates who are worthy of receiving this award I look forward to seeing many of you
