With another successful Elon Day in the books, the Elon Alumni Board will soon join the Office of University Advancement and the Alumni Engagement team on campus for the board’s spring meeting and Elon’s annual Alumni Awards Weekend, being held April 26-27.

The board, which is made up of around 20 alumni representing a range of class years and areas of the country, will convene in April to recognize the service of Allison Breeding ’99, who has successfully led the Elon Alumni Board as president over the past year and has been an active member for the past 4 years. During her time with the board, Breeding spearheaded an initiative to endow a $50,000 scholarship in support of student internships, which are a critical indicator of professional success after Elon. Breeding also led many engagement programs over her time on the board.
