HCC has over 40 years worth of graduates living all over the U.S. and abroad. There are many stories and successes to share. In an effort to re-establish contact with these alumni, Haywood Community College is actively pursuing the establishment of an HCC Alumni Association. To this end a steering committee comprised of HCC alumni volunteers were appointed to research the protocol for establishing the association and to discuss ideas for involving more alumni through special events and reunions. For more information about the HCC alumni initiative, contact Julie Newland, HCC Recruiter and Alumni Technician at 828-565-4173 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Alumni may send their stories to email@example.com.
