The search for a new Program Director will start after we receive
word on our funding status, which will hopefully be sometime

Student Interaction: Members of the Board have met with students
in the Jr. Seminar class. We and they enjoyed this very much, as

been given to us again this year.
Baltimore Trip for the Sophomores and Jrs. is in May.
Sarah discussed having an Alumni Panel for the Summer program.
She will get us a date for that and more information will follow.
Alumni Newsletter. Tom suggested this is a task better suited for
the staff as they have more information readily available to them.
Tom noted that he would begin brainstorming some good ideas for
a Newsletter and considering this is our 45th Anniversary
Celebration.. It seems like a good time to get a Newsletter out.
