Wallace, ’68, former EDP director. Missing is Dr. Sherryl Weems, ’76.
Alumni and friends of the Educational Development Program will return to campus April 29 to May 1.
“We had such a wonderful time at the 2008 reunion, we wanted to keep that momentum going and hold another reunion in 2011,” said Co-chair Audrey Pitts, ’82.
“Alumni will have the chance to interact with current students, visit the campus, and renew old friendships. We’ll also be raising funds for the EDP Scholarship Fund and Wallace Scholarship Endowment.”
“After getting reacquainted at the welcome reception Friday night, attendees can take a walking tour of the campus on Saturday morning,” added Co-chair Louis Coplin, ’82.
The first Jeffrey J. Wallace Scholarship will be presented at the luncheon on Saturday, where the EDP Alumni Mentoring Project will have its kickoff. Then a reunion dinner will be held that evening. During breakfast on Sunday, alumni will share thoughts about fund raising to strengthen the Wallace endowment and make plans for the next reunion.
The Educational Development Program on Fredonia’s campus, known as Educational Opportunity Program SUNY-wide, started its 40th year last fall. It is a state-funded, special admissions program which provides academic and financial support services for students who show promise for mastering college-level work but may otherwise not be admitted under regular college criteria.
For information or to sign up for the reunion, contact the EDP Office at (716) 673-3317.
