Cabarrus alumni
On June 9, Cabarrus College of Health Sciences sponsored an Alumni Homecoming. More than 80 alumni representing 28 classes ranging from 1948 to 2003 attended. Participants traveled from South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Virginia, New York, Delaware and even Bermuda.
The day began with a breakfast at the college and the chance to visit with classmates, whom many had not seen in years. After breakfast, several of the current student leaders gave tours of the college and of NorthEast Medical Center. The newly constructed college campus that opened its doors in January 2004 impressed many alumni, as did the tremendous growth that the medical center campus has undergone over the last few years.
Several classes, including the classes of 1956, 1957 and 1967, had lunch together that afternoon at various locations in the area.
At 6:00 p.m. everyone met at the Hotel Concord for dinner, dancing and more social time to catch up with one another. Kathy Dayvault, president-elect of the Alumni Association welcomed and thanked everyone for coming.
Chancellor Anita Brown then gave a short welcome on behalf of the college administration and said a few words about the wonderful things currently going on at the college. Chancellor Brown introduced the vice-chancellor, Dr. Dianne Snyder who took the crowd on a stroll down memory lane and spoke about the connections and camaraderie that so many of CCHS alumni share. Dr. Snyder then invited Beth Mabrey ’62 to lead everyone one in the singing of the school song, “The Blue and White.”
Dinner, dancing and much reminiscing followed.
