The Online MBA graduates from the Class of 2018 recently gathered together virtually to celebrate the announcement of their class gift. Collectively, the group raised $4,051 to go toward both the Raymond A. Mason School of Business Annual Fund as well as the Kyle Milliken Memorial Scholarship.
Class Gift Representative Jamar Jenkins proudly presented Dean Pulley with the gift, describing how the OMBA program “means the world to me, and has really been a game changer in my professional life.”
Dean Pulley extended warm praises to the Class of 2018, explaining how they have never lacked enthusiasm, even when they could not physically be on campus. “I am delighted with the engagement, and have already been bragging,” Pulley says with a smile. “We are thrilled with the OMBA program, and we see this as the first seal of our lifelong partnership.”
Truly, the involvement with the business school does not end after graduation. Associate Director of Development Jordan Hunt urged the online MBA class of 2018 to stay involved with their alma mater by keeping in touch and attending as many events as they can. Alumni are able to see new business school initiatives through an annual report which also allows donors to see how their funds are being used to help current and future students.
The common saying around William & Mary is “One Tribe, One Family.” The business school has expanded this phrase to remind past and present students to “stay engaged, early and often.” Alumni are always welcomed and encouraged to be active within the William & Mary community.
