On behalf of President Dr. Valerie Kinloch '96 and the Division of Institutional Advancement, please join us for a spectacular celebration during Alumni Reunion Weekend 2024, set to take place from Friday, May 17, through Sunday, May 19, 2024.

This reunion holds special significance as we come together to honor and commemorate the milestones achieved since your graduation. It is an opportunity to reconnect, reminisce, and revel in the collective achievements that define the Golden Bull spirit. Classes ending in 4 and 9 are in reunion this year, making it a truly inclusive and unforgettable occasion.

Our dedicated team is diligently planning to ensure that your reunion experience is not only memorable but also engaging. We invite you to witness the growth and progress happening at Johnson C. Smith University, where your alma mater continues to evolve and thrive.

Enclosed with this letter, you will find the 2024 Alumni Reunion Registration form. We kindly ask you to complete the form as you prepare for this auspicious weekend. Additionally, we invite you to consider making a meaningful contribution to the University. Your generosity plays a vital role in supporting the University's needs, and your spirit of reunion often inspires significant contributions. Please note that all contributions must be made by Friday, June 30, 2024, to be accounted for in this fiscal year.

As you embark on this journey down memory lane, we encourage you to view your contribution not merely as a donation but as a lasting investment in the future and success of Dear Ol' JCSU. Becoming an annual donor is a powerful way to demonstrate your ongoing commitment to the university.
