The Franklin & Marshall College Alumni Association Board of Directors works to advance the welfare of the College and its alumni.

Members of the Board volunteer their time and talent by attending three on-campus meetings each year and regular Committee and Board calls throughout the year, by leading and participating in College events on and off campus, by serving other volunteer organizations of the College, by mentoring current students, and by committing to give to the College annually.

Members of the Board have tremendous pride in the College and in their fellow alumni, and promote that pride to their fellow alumni and those in their communities at every opportunity. 

Board Members are typically nominated and elected by the existing directors. Learn more here.

    Why I Love F&M: I love F&M because this is where I began to grow into the person I've become. I finally met and worked with people who are like me, and people who made me believe it was a good thing to work hard and love learning, and encouraged my creativity. I have stayed engaged because I think the work that F&M does today is even more significant in the world now. Teaching people how to think, how to collaborate, and how to be flexible is more important than ever. Preparing students to adapt in a fast changing world is critical. My work on the Alumni Association Board, as well as my work with my local alumni chapter, and as a Regional Team Leader for the FAN network, allows me to engage and connect with other alumni, current students and families, and future students on many different levels. The social aspect of feeling at home when the common thread of F&M is in our backgrounds never goes away.

    Why I Love F&M: Our relationship didn’t start on the best footing. We first met in January. F&M didn’t look so good. And to be honest, F&M was a rebound relationship. But in four years, the relationship blossomed into a love affair. I learned, I played, I grew. I found professors who treated me like family. I made relationships that have lasted a lifetime. Then F&M sealed the deal: I met my husband. Since then, F&M has been a part of our lives. We visited as often as we could. We sighed over the good old days. We loved reunions and the chance to reconnect. I heard myself evangelizing about the education you can only get at a liberal arts college. And 30 years after we arrived, we sent our daughter to begin her own F&M experience. Serving on the Alumni Association Board is an honor and a joy. I’m prouder than ever of my school. It might not have been love at first sight. But it will be a relationship for life.
