The Alumni Association has had a wonderful year! Through the collaborative efforts of the NCC Foundation, we are now able to receive on-line memberships and donations. AANCC added 130 Lifetime members. We presented 18 Scholarship awards totaling $6, 600. We donated to eleven (11) Nassau Community College fundraisers and three (3) community initiatives totaling $7, 966.97. We initiated Nassau Community College Day at Nassau Coliseum. We hosted two fundraising events, which we hope to be annual: The Holiday Social and the Women’s Social and Empowerment Breakfast. We attended three community outreach programs sponsored by Nassau County, which bought awareness to the Alumni Association. The Alumni Association purchased tee- shirts for the Radio station that has our logo on the sleeves. Because of the Voice of Nassau Community College, 90.3 WHPC, community outreach has expanded. And too, the social media pages viewership has increased.

The Alumni Association has collaborated with NCC’s Applied Learning program by coordinating applied learning activities, programs, and support services that helps to build and strengthen communities while bringing the curriculum to life. The Alumni Association has also collaborated with the Safe Center of LI where the AANCC presented a Back-to-School supply give-away to community and students in need.
This year Lion Tales Radio Show was launched on the Voice of Nassau Community College, 90.3 WHPC. This show highlights proud Alumni of Nassau Community College. Lion Tales Radio Show is available as a Podcast on Itunes, Android Podcasts and Spreaker. Lion Tales is powered by the Nassau Community College Foundation. The show airs every Tuesday at 4:00PM.

I am very pleased to announce that we have filled the Executive Board position seats. Joining the Board is Mrs. Valerie Anderson Campbell, Dr. Corrinne Graham, Dr. Lynnda Nadien, Dr. Subrina Oliver, Mrs. Elizabeth Wellington. Also, we have an intern, Loni Adeniran, who serves as the Alumni Association’s Production Assistant.

General Membership Meeting dates are posted on the website under the heading Alumni Events. The Alumni Association is always looking for Committee members and guest for the Lion Tales Radio Show.
