Associated Alumni

Celebrating many ProudlyUNB accomplishments

Coming back to earth after a successful and inspiring Proudly UNB Awards dinner is not easy. I hope you will all take the opportunity to attend one of these annual events, especially as the proud nominator of a recipient. We look forward to hearing about the many wonderful things our alumni are doing in New Brunswick and around the world.

This year we celebrated the accomplishments of some inspiring alumni: young alumni in business and physical therapy, a reunion committee for the Class of ‘67 rallying a large group from days gone by, and distinguished alumni in medicine, business, athletics and graduate education. Their contributions have been exceptional. The bittersweet honorary alumni award went to our president, Eddy Campbell and his lovely wife, the late Diane Campbell. Ten years of devotion, hospitality, support and cheerleading by a partnership that had an impact on all aspects of the UNB community.

On April 15, applications closed for our Legacy Scholarship and our Alumni Student Leadership Award. The Associated Alumni will award the scholarship this year to a student in mid-degree status. It is valued at $15,000, over two years, to support the completion of their degree. Active involvement in the university community and academic achievement are the prerequisites for the UNB applicants.

Over the past month, we have been celebrating students on each campus for their leadership, athletic commitment and academic excellence. In Saint John, we recently commended 20 graduating students for their exceptional contributions to UNB through our Graduating Student Leadership Awards. I know we will hear of their greatness in the years to come as they continue to make their mark on their communities. I hope it will be here in New Brunswick.

We have had a great winter with many achievements on the court, on the ice, in the research lab, in business competitions and in the community through experiential learning opportunities. I could not begin to list the many exciting, innovative and successful achievements of our students, alumni, staff and faculty. Follow @UNB and @UNBalumni on Twitter as each day announcements are made highlighting these events.

As we say goodbye to Eddy Campbell, farewell events are being held across the country, providing alumni with the opportunity to say goodbye and thank you to our president. I look forward to seeing you and hearing your story.

I remain, ProudlyUNB.
