From the Alumni Association President
For a quarter of a century, a small number of truly exceptional past students have received MC’s highest alumni honor. We called it the Outstanding Alumni Achievement Award until 2002, when we named it in honor of Milton F. (“Sonny”) Clogg ’48, president of the College’s first graduating class, who remained devoted to MC throughout his life.
One holder of the Milton F. Clogg Award is Sue Flatow ’72. Sue volunteered countless hours to help other students succeed, then led selection committees for association awards and scholarships, and then urged us to develop our alumni mentoring program, now in its second year. Some time ago, Sue realized that the Clogg Award recognizes a lifetime of achievements, and said we should also spotlight alumni who are doing note-worthy things as soon as they leave MC. And now, we’re doing that.
At next spring’s awards dinner, we’ll celebrate the careers of some remarkable alumni, welcome new members of the Athletic Hall of Fame, and inaugurate a new “Rising Star” Award, recognizing a young alum. The first of these awards goes to Dr. Amy Gueye ’03, who is featured in this issue. The alumni awards are a chance to catch up with past MC students—maybe even your classmates. I invite you to reserve your tickets early for this great event by visiting www.montgomerycollege.edu/alumniawards today.
While you’re online, be sure to update your access to MyMC, the College’s secure portal, which gives past students access to many College services. As part of MC’s work to keep your personal information safe, users are being asked to claim their MyMC account using new, stronger passwords this fall. More information about this change is available at www.montgomerycollege.edu/claim-your-account. If you are returning to MyMC after a long time away, you’ll be directed to the Claim Your Account page. Use the number on your Alumni Association membership card to identify yourself.
There’s one more thing I can suggest on the website: the online giving page, where you can contribute to scholarship support with a contribution to the Alumni Association. A click on www.montgomerycollege.edu/onlinegiving can make the difference for one of today’s students who—you never know—may some day collect an alumni award of their own!
