Young AlumniStudent Ambassador Board
The Student Ambassador Board (SAB) is proud to announce that the board is currently expanding to include a new group of Student Ambassadors at the University of Memphis at Lambuth campus. The new SAB-Lambuth board will consist of 10 students who will also become full-time members of the current Student Ambassador Board. The expanded board will also be under the guidance and supervision of the Alumni Association and uphold all standards and policies of the current Student Ambassador Board. As always, the purpose of the Student Ambassador Board is to serve as the liaisons between the student body, the administration, the alumni and the entire university and surrounding communities. Members will represent the university on main campus and at Lambuth at presidential, alumni & community events and also at reunions, commencements, parent's weekend, Homecoming and other special requests as determined by the University of Memphis Alumni Association. Interviews for the new board were held this week and we are excited to welcome our newest board members. The SAB-Lambuth members are: Joshua Shaw, Ben Bishop, Marygrace Burnett, Amanda Ibrahim, Lauren Ingle, Lara Beth Cherry, Darryl Perry, Mario Lopez-Rodriguez, Renard Miles, and Sam Megelsh. Congratulations to all of these students and welcome to the SAB family!

August marks an exciting month for SAB. As we are welcoming our newest SAB-Lambuth members, we are also preparing to travel to Washington D.C. for the annual CASE ASAP (Council for Advancement and Support of Education and the Affiliated Student Advancement Programs) conference on August 5-9. The conference is comprised of student alumni associations, student foundations and other similar university organizations from over 300 other universities. The goal of the conference is to foster and enhance student involvement in all areas of advancement and university programming. Student Ambassadors, Rocio Agundis and Dalton Fulcher, will be traveling to D.C. to represent the University of Memphis and the Student Ambassador Board at the conference. They were also chosen to be one of 25 presenters that were selected from all of the attending universities nationwide. Our SABs have chosen "Creating Traditions and Celebrating our Campus Heroes" as their presentation topic and as such will be speaking about the role of the Student Ambassadors on campus. They will also be discussing some of their programming ranging from the Mudball event, which has been a campus tradition for 30 years to the new Veterans Day Program established by SAB last year to celebrate our student veterans and Tiger Troop veterans. The Student Ambassador Board would like to thank the Alumni Association and our alumni donors for continuing to support the board and also for sponsoring SAB so that they could attend this conference and present on behalf of the University of Memphis.

The annual Student Ambassador Board retreat will also be held on August 15-16 at The Grove in Cordova. During the retreat, we will be training our new members and also creating and planning our programming and events for the fall semester.

Alumni Spotlight

Mary Anne McCrawMary Anne McCraw (BS '94, MS '13)

Mary Anne McCraw has such a love for University of Memphis that she came back to work on campus three times while earning two degrees from the UofM. "I've always found the professors, research and classes to be vibrant, exciting portals to new ideas and innovation."

Her biology studies (1994) and work on campus as a student in the former Computing Center and the Physics Department helped contribute to a successful career in health care at St. Joseph Hospital and Baptist Memorial Health Care. After working in patient clinical areas for 20 years, McCraw transitioned to the corporate setting, helping design Baptist's first website and winning numerous web awards for Baptist's Internet sites and online health magazine.

While completing a master's degree in instructional design and technology (2013), she worked on campus as manager of the IDT Studio in the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences. As a graduate student she was afforded many opportunities: to learn best practices and the latest research in IDT; publish and present a research paper at a national IDT conference; do research for FedEx; and work as project manager developing online classes for University of Mississippi and Baptist College of Health Sciences, where she is currently employed.

As current president of the College of Arts and Sciences Alumni Chapter, McCraw has enjoyed working with a highly dedicated and committed board to host numerous events, including the annual alumni awards event that helps fund six student book scholarships each year. One of the unique features of our chapter is it's representation of the largest college in the Tennessee Board of Regents system, comprising 24 academic units, the ROTC, multiple research centers, and two Centers of Excellence. Because of the diversity of our alumni majors, we are able to honor alumni from a wide range of professions at our awards event every year. Past awards recipients include: city planners, judges, weathermen, attorneys, hospital administrators, and philanthropists.

McCraw was honored to take part in the Investiture of UofM's 12th President, Dr. M. David Rudd, by participating in the alumni processional. "By being active in the Alumni Association, I am able attend events where I meet University of Memphis administrators to learn about future UofM initiatives and cutting-edge research, as well as meet and reconnect with fellow graduates. It's still as exciting to be on campus as it was my first semester!"

The Arts & Sciences Chapter's future plans include increased involvement, growing alumni membership, and endowing the student scholarships fund. However, none of that is possible without each and every one of our alumni. Mary Ann invites all CAS alumni to join the Alumni Association and get involved in the Chapter. Join today or learn more about the Chapter.
