The Office of Alumni Relations
– Alice Spencer Geddes Lloyd
YOU are those leaders. At Alice Lloyd College, we value our alumni, because they are fulfilling the dream of our founder by providing the leadership that Appalachia needs today. Our graduates are special people who have committed themselves to lives of service and are using their many talents to create a better tomorrow. Whether you are an entrepreneur, doctor, engineer, lawyer, or teacher, you are working every day to make the changes this region needs to build as storied a future as we have a past.
Alice Lloyd was wise to see that the Appalachian people were responsible for their own destiny, and this remains true today. Mindful of our heritage and determined in our present journey, we are hopeful for what is yet to come due to the fact that we are sending out the solutions this region needs one Appalachian student at a time. Our college community is like a close-knit Appalachian family, and our desire is to stay in touch with all of the people who began their life’s purpose on the banks of Caney Creek. You are important, you are making a difference, and your story is our story!
