UIC College of Nursing Alumni Reception 2016
With nearly 70 alumni, donors, faculty, staff, and students in attendance, guests mixed and mingled over appetizers and cocktails enjoying the beautiful skyline view at the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame located on Taylor Street. The evening’s program consisted of a special recognition for alumni celebrating anniversary milestones - particularly from years 2006, 2001, 1986, 1981, and celebrating 40 years, the class of 1976. Student scholarship recipients from the current academic year (2015-2016) were also recognized. Alumni Board Member Phyllis Pelt (MS ’95, BSN ’67) shared the impact a UIC Nursing degree and scholarship support had on her successful career path specializing in school nursing and public health. The event concluded with the raising of $10,325 - the majority to support student scholarships.
