Special message for young alumni (Classes of 2012-2020)!

A member of each class from the last decade has offered a special challenge for classmates to join the Young Associates Society. Young Associates is a group of Roanoke’s most recent grads who understand the importance of giving back—the next generation of Maroon Alumni leaders in many ways! Join with a gift of $500 (2012-2016) or $250 (2017-2020).  

Huge shout-out to the following 2012-2020 alumni for rallying today. Will you join the charge?
