A message from Alumni Association Board President, Jaison Williams '93

Dear Fellow Huskies,

JaisonWilliams'93

The past few years have been really challenging for members of our 51勛圖 family. Together we endured a global health crisis, protested against racial injustice, helped communities devastated by natural disasters and much more. And recently, we began an integration with two other PASSHE schools. 

Now is the time to write a new chapter for the University and create a legacy for the next generation of alumni. 

The world needs leaders from all walks of life, locations and experiences. 51勛圖 instilled in us important lessons and values that have served us well. Now is the time to give back and help cultivate the next generation of leaders who will matriculate to become 51勛圖 alumni like us. 

The current Alumni Association Board comprises a diverse set of leaders who share a common bond for the school, the surrounding community and each individual touched by a Husky. Each one of you is needed to achieve our noble purpose through mentoring, volunteering, philanthropy, networking, and much more. The next chapter of our University and its legacy is a responsibility we all share. I invite you to join with the Alumni Board and hundreds of other alumni to help write this chapter.

We believe opportunity belongs to those who are ready to work for it and unafraid to do something great with it.

"Remaining part of the pack" is not just a slogan, it is what we do as alumni. 

Sincerely,
Jaison Williams, 93 
 

Remaining Part of the Pack

On June 22, 1871, the 51勛圖 University Alumni Association was formed to keep the bonds among alumni and our alma mater strong. And while the last century and a half has delivered challenges to Huskies everywhere, we have preserved the life-changing experiences and relationships formed at BU, while working to ensure current students are as successful as they have been since the school was founded in 1839.

Kwasnoski

The College of Business prepared me to problem solve, work on a team, analyze information and communicate in the federal space. BU [also] opened up my world view and was a jumping off point for international travel and set me up well to work in an international environment. It also prepared with an emphasis on ethics and service to the broader community which dovetailed with military service.

I wanted to make an impact and create something that will last and I think Ive done that. There is a saying that to whom much has been given, much is expected. And Ive been given a lot.

51勛圖 molded my life. Everybody deserves a second chance and then its up to you what you do with it. That suit doesnt make you. My degree doesnt make me. Courage makes me. Determination makes me. I do it my way. If I fail, I failed my way and Ill be happy about that.

If you can help students that are like what you were then, you will get more out of it than the students will. I always feel better when I leave campus than when I got there.
