To our Alumni Community,
It is my honor to serve as the president of the Mid-Pacific Institute Alumni Association (MPIAA). Over my career while working to achieve success, I always reflect back at the foundation that helped me be whom I am. That foundation was Mid-Pacific. I look forward to working with all of our alums to help, support and build an association based on the spirit of Alumni Helping Alumni (AHA!). Through our collective spirit of progress we will help Mid-Pacific achieve greatness. The MPIAA Board is a group of eighteen accomplished alumni representing many distinct areas in our community. The board feels a deep commitment to function as a best-practice association that represents all alumni and advances and supports Mid-Pacific. We will achieve this by perpetuating positive, lasting relationships and fellowship among our alumni. Owls for Owls! I am excited to see how we all help each other make a difference. Our focus is to engage, communicate and fundraise to contribute the heart to an education only available at today's Mid-Pacific -- Humble Innovators. Brave Artists. Compassionate Individuals. I would like to encourage all of you to get involved. "Owls for Owls!" Taking care of our own.
RE-NEW - RE-ENGAGE - RE-ENERGIZE
