Department of Nursing Reunion Report
The evening was highlighted by remarks from former nursing faculty member Lucy Legg Blackham, current faculty members Kathy Barnhill and Kim Van Wagoner, and concluding remarks by Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.
The reunion was a tremendous success. A strong interest has been expressed by the alumni nurses to have another reunion, tentatively scheduled for 2008.
Further details for each reunion will be mailed out to individual alumni belonging to the specified group. Please update your contact information by visiting Alumni Connections at www.byui.edu/alumni.

In the most recent edition of this magazine, you may have read about our new Alumni Ambassador program, which was developed to cover the growing needs of our alumni. We are very excited to report we now have over 200 ambassadors serving throughout the United States and Canada. As we have called new Ambassadors, we have discovered most have already been unofficial ambassadors for Ricks College and BYU–Idaho. In short, they have always been cheerleaders and advocates for the school. Through small day-to-day interactions, they are helping keep our alumni connected.
One of the primary purposes of our Alumni Association is to assist our alumni in staying connected to each other, to the university, and to the Church. We are always striving to improve the way we accomplish this important purpose; but honestly, we simply cannot do it without you. Please continue to join us for reunions, Spirit Week activities, and visit our online community, Alumni Connections, at www.byui.edu/alumni. These are just a few of the many ways you can help us stay connected.
Let us know how we are doing. What can we do better or different? Do you feel connected to your alma mater? We would sincerely appreciate any feedback you might give. Please take a moment to send us a quick note via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or through the mail to 16 E. Main Street, Rexburg, ID 83460-0056.
I join with you in expressing gratitude for the experience of attending this great university. I invite you to celebrate the future of BYU–Idaho, while continuing to share the wonderful “Spirit of Ricks” we all remember and cherish.
