The CUAA is comprised of committed alumni around the world who generously donate their time, talent and financial resources to advance the vision of Cumberland University. Alumni involvement on every level impacts CU. This year, Agee said her goal for the board and the entire association is to connect with Cumberland’s growing alumni community.
“What I have noticed is that any time there are Cumberland graduates together, the first thing that happens is we all have these fond memories of Cumberland,” Agee said. “I think that is the Cumberland University Alumni Association’s goal: to bring alumni together and get them involved. In the upcoming year, I want to provide more alumni the opportunity to get involved.”
