COMMUNITY SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS
INVEST IN THE FUTURE OF THE FELLOWS ALUMNI PROGRAM TODAY!
In the video above, Fellows Alumni Executive Council Chair, Jason DeJonker, and Immediate Past Chair, Zohra Tejani, explain the importance of making your $125 contribution to the "All In!" campaign. As the campaign closes this Thursday, June 30, we urge you to invest in the future of the Fellows Alumni program. Broken down by the percentage of Fellows Alumni per class that has contributed, the competition is fierce--the Classes of 2012 and 2014 are tied for first place, and the Classes of 2011 and 2013 are tied for second place! Your participation will decide which class wins in the end.
