Gordon adds two groups to Alumni Association

Gordon College is working to add two new groups to the Alumni Association – one for students who completed any part of their pre-pharmacy program at Gordon and one for graduates of the Early Childhood Education program. Dan Jackson, long-time chemistry professor and mentor to pre-pharmacy students, has agreed to interrupt his retirement and serve as coordinator of the yet-unnamed pre-pharmacy group. According to Jackson, more than 300 students have graduated the Gordon pre-pharmacy program and more than 100 are practicing pharmacists. Tentative plans call for a reunion to be held in conjunction with the annual Gordon College Alumni Weekend April 16-17, 2010 with a separate function held for the pre-pharmacy group. Also in the works is the development of a group for graduates of Gordon’s first baccalaureate program, Early Childhood Education. ’We are excited for all alumni to return to campus for the annual reunion and these groups give alumni with common interest an opportunity to spend time together,’ said Lynn Yates, coordinator of alumni affairs. A meeting for pre-pharmacy alumni is Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 11 a.m. at the Alumni House on Stafford Avenue. All pre-pharmacy alumni are invited to attend.
