Fall Alumni Symposium
Saturday, October 20, 2012
Thank you to everyone who attended this year's Fall Alumni Symposium. We truly appreciate your support! It is our hope that you found the event educational, informative, and enjoyable. We hope that you can join us again next year!

Thank you also to President Jackie Jenkins-Scott; Kathryn Jones '96MS, President of the Alumni Association Board; Matthew Power-Koch '11MS, Chair of the Graduate School Alumni Committee of the Alumni Association Board; and Linda Welter, VP for Institutional Advancement, for their introductions, presentations, and assistance throughout the day.
Thank you also to Dawna Burrus, Wheelock's Director of Professional Development and Continuing Education, for all of her work in securing credits (CEUs) for the attendees of the Symposium.
Congratulations to our Elizabeth Palmer Peabody Award Winner - Audrey Peck '90MS. Everyone at the event could not help but be moved when President Jackie read the heartfelt nomination form, that was submitted by Audrey's former colleague, and also by Audrey's touching remarks following her win. She certainly reflects Elizabeth Peabody's commitment to education and the values of Wheelock College. Congratulations again, Audrey!
