Recent Storms in Alabama

To the ASMS Community
From Larry V. Turner, Ed.D President

We wanted to take a moment to extend our deepest concern for those who have suffered great loss as a result of the recent storms that have inundated our state, recognizing that a number of our students and alumni live in areas that have been impacted.

We realize that many communication links are down at this time, especially across north Alabama. We will continue to monitor this situation and we stand ready to assist in any way that we can.

Even today, our students participated on campus in the annual “Mega Musical Chairs” event for charity. The winning team has already designated their “winnings” of $1500 for Red Cross relief efforts in Alabama. ASMS students are already planning other efforts to help those in such need due to this tragedy.

Do not hesitate to give us a call if there is anything that we can do at ASMS. Everyone impacted will remain in our thoughts and on our hearts.

Corporate Gift Matching

 

OK, so the past few stories have been leaning heavily on how to donate or help ASMS out financially.  Well, a lot of that is because of the heavy budget cuts that the school has taken over the past two years.  While I don't live in Alabama any more, even I have heard a lot about the educational funding cuts that have happened there lately.  But if anyone has a good write-up on it or would like to either put it up here or can refer us to a good story on it, please let me know and I'll put it in as a reference.

And until then, it doesn't hurt to remember that a lot of corporations have matching donation programs that will either match a portion of your donation or 100% of it to non-profit groups such the school or the Alumni Foundation.  Sometimes they're limited to only colleges (as I was recently told by my company), but often it's any charitable group.

Bruno's green Receipts for ASMS

For those of you living near a Bruno's Supermarket, here's a quick note from Debbie Manning on how you can help raise some money for ASMS with almost no effort on your part:

Just a reminder to save your Bruno's green receipts. ASMS can receive cash for any receipts dated after January 3, 2011 through June 2011.  Just mail them to Bebe Lindsey, ASMS, 1255 Dauphin St.,  Mobile, AL  36604.

Thanks, every bit helps!

ASMS Alumni Weekend

 

Dear Alum:

 

SAVE THE DATE:   This year we are celebrating alumni weekend June 10th - 12th.  All alumni are invited. 

 

We are hoping this weekend will serve the needs of most alums.  It will be summer (popular request), but AIMS summer programs will be in session so many faculty will be around.  It is early summer so it isn't too terribly hot. However, since school will not be in session, we won't be having the "attend a class" event or alumni guest speakers at assembly.  We are still searching for the "best" weekend to hold alumni weekend and felt like trying this time this year.

 

Celebrating special years will be the classes of:  1996, 2001,and  2006.
