Fellow Alumni and Friends,
My name is Rufus Brown, ’60, and as I’ve stated before, I’m a “Young Harris-aholic.” I was Alumni President a few years ago, and now I’ve been taken out of the mothballs to serve again.
I attended YHC a couple of years ago and met my wife, Angela Avant Brown, ’60. We have three children, two of which attended YHC. My four grandchildren have all already been indentured to YHC until they graduate.
I am a people person, and the most important, favorite and loved people in my life are friends I made at YHC. I cannot impress upon you, unless you have already realized it, the importance of remaining active in your alumni organization. We (the College) need your support, both financially and by your personal involvement. We always need Class Coordinators, help with recruiting and fundraising and assistance with big ticket events like Alumni Weekend and Homecoming. It’s all fun, rewarding and fulfilling.
President, Young Harris College Alumni Association
Alumni Association Board of Directors
The Young Harris College Alumni Association is led by a 20-member board made up of alumni representing a wide range of generations. The purpose of the Young Harris College Alumni Association is to serve as an advisory board to the President of the College and the Office of Alumni Services; to unite the Alumni, former students, and friends of the Young Harris College for the purpose of renewing friendships, creating goodwill, enhancing fellowship and camaraderie in cooperation with the Office of Alumni Services in its efforts of keeping in contact with Alumni and former students, and disseminating information to them about the College; to foster and perpetuate Alumni enthusiasm for the College and fellow Alumni; and to serve as the official alumni organization of YHC.
The Alumni Board works with the Office of Alumni Services to organize a variety of events for alumni, friends and prospective students and their families to highlight Young Harris College's achievements and reminisce with old classmates and professors. These events are friend-raisers, not fund-raisers.
If you have ideas for alumni events or would like to help plan or host an event, call (706) 379-5334 or email the Office of Alumni Services.
