Spring Leadership Retreat
The University College Alumni Chapter partook in their Spring Retreat in Jackson, TN this past June.  The day began with a tour of Lambuth Campus, led by Dean Lattimore. Attendees were able to see test dummies used in the Nursing program, the theater, on-campus chapel and many more notable sights. Afterward, the Chapter headed to Sherri Stephens’ log cabin on Indian Lake, where the group enjoyed slow-cooked BBQ ribs, sweet tea and a soothing environment full of birds and cool lake air.  For those longing the experience, the Stephens’ offer a night’s stay at this lovely cabin annually at University College Alumni Chapter’s Holiday Party Silent Auction; they hope you will attend!
