Schriever, LA – Fletcher Technical Community College took another step toward institutional advancement by creating Fletcher’s Alumni Association. Created in August 2018, the group recently elected officers:
- Jeanne-Morgan Gernon, President
- Juan Clara, Vice President
- Alexis Knight, Secretary
- John Warren, Treasurer
- Joy Lymous, Ambassador
The Alumni Association has already been at work with their first fundraiser under their belts. In January they partnered with the Alumni Grill in Thibodaux to establish the Fletcher Falcon Alumni Burger, which ran as a special burger of the month, with a donation being made to Fletcher Foundation in support of Fletcher’s Alumni Association.
The Association will host the Inaugural Graduation Brunch and Awards Ceremony on April 27, from 9 am – 11 am. The brunch and ceremony is free for 2018 and 2019 Fletcher graduates, and guests are welcome at $15 per person. This event will take place in the Atrium on Fletcher’s Schriever campus.
“Fletcher Technical Community College is proud to establish our new Alumni Board and Association,” commented Chancellor Dr. Kristine Strickland. “For decades, Fletcher has been educating and training members of our community for high demand careers. We recognize that the vast majority of our graduates remain in our region and the Alumni Association will enable our graduates to stay in touch with one another, as well as with Fletcher. We also commend the new board on their first successful fundraiser which will assist the group in growing the organization.”
