Welcome Home Governor Leavitt

Southern Utah University welcomed home alumnus Michael O. Leavitt and family after a distinguished career as Governor of Utah, Administrator of the EPA and finally Secretary of Health and Human Services. During his remarks he shared a little of his Washington experience with us as well as his insights on public service. It was a fantastic reception! Thank you to all those who attended. We are thrilled to have him on campus while he continues to cultivate the Leavitt Center for Politics in Society and works on personal projects.

Utah Music Educator's Association Reception (UMEA)

The College of Performing and Visual Arts and SUU Alumni Relations hosted their first annual UMEA Alumni Reception on Friday, February 6, 2009, at the St. George Comfort Suites. It was fantastic to have visit with SUU Alumni who are teaching music across the state. We are excited for this annual tradition and if you plan to attend the 2010 UMEA conference in St. George, mark your calendar for the Friday evening of the conference.

Scott & Jessica Forsyth. Scott was named UMEA Junior High Music Educator of the Year! Congrats Scott!

We had about 500 in attendance which is about 1/3 of the 2009 graduating class. Alumni Relations is excited to make this event a tradition. Thank you to all those who helped make this a huge success.
