Events Sponsored by Multicultural Affairs
Please join us for a special Black Alumni Celebration to help us honor Assistant Dean Bertha Thomas as she prepares for retirement. Bertha has had a wonderful impact on the lives of many current students, as well as countless Truman alumni. We hope you will return to campus to show your appreciation for Bertha! Various activities are planned including a meet and greet, barbeque, football game, tours and a special mixer. Your attendance will be valued and will help make this event a success. If there is sufficient response, a private charter bus organized by MAC alumni will leave Harris-Stowe State University on Saturday morning, October 19, 2013, at 6:00am.
