Sustaining Life Program
This program is a voluntary opportunity for current Life Members to provide additional, annual support through a tax-deductible donation. The Sustaining Life Program has helped the association add new scholarships, enhance regional networking opportunities for alumni, and expand our support of the Student Alumni Association.
Thank you to all of our life members who support this program
