We’re looking for a few dedicated members. Are you one of them? Want to Join Our Alumni Association?
Winston-Salem State University National Alumni Association
“As we go forth from Old State U. Good leaders we will always be, and care for all humanity. As you have taught us, State University. In all we do we shall proclaim, to all the world thy enduring fame. As we go forth we praise thy name, O’ Winston-Salem State University.”
Homecoming 2016 was a huge success!!! Once again, in true Ram tradition, thousands gathered to celebrate the culture, heritage and legacy of everything representative of WSSU.
Although there were numerous events celebratory of Homecoming during this mid-October timeframe, your Winston-Salem State University National Alumni Association (WSSUNAA) is extremely proud of their $60,000 scholarship donation to support students who Enter To Learn at WSSU! The historic donation was shared with alums, students and fans via a check presentation during the Founder’s Day Convocation and Homecoming football game, opposing St. Augustine University. Please know that we are excited about this tremendous accomplishment and the opportunities afforded, as a result. WSSUNAA is strongly Linked Together in Unity and fully committed to Serving by Supporting current and future students.
Other alumni events during Homecoming included Alumni Return To Serve, Hometown Huddle and the Hall of Distinction Induction, in which Gordon Everett, Nina Christian, and Velma C. Hicks were inductees. We also celebrated the return of the Mr. and Miss Alumni Crowning! This year’s winners are Mr. Alumni, William L. Richardson and Miss Alumni, Burnetta Johnson Smith'81. Following the crowning ceremony, alums and friends enjoyed a very successful Alumni Scholarship Gala, featuring live music by Envision, and a delicious breakfast. The celebrations continued with a Rams’ Saturday Night Live Party at Embassy Suites. WSSUNAA is also proud to give special recognition to the Golden Class of 1966 and Silver Class of 1991, who celebrated their 50th and 25th year reunions, respectively, during Homecoming 2016.
Reflecting on these wonderful events, I am in awe of the WSSUNAA Special Event Team, their focus and leadership in ensuring great memories for our Ram family. We certainly could not have done this without them, as well as a very successful new, “I Joined The National Movement” membership drive initiative. In order to continue doing great things for our great university, it is imperative that alums financially participate! I charge you to commit to either continuing your support, as an existing member or to become a new member of WSSUNAA. Also, I invite you to engage in alumni happenings by visiting the website, join our text media list by texting @wssuna to 81010 to receive updates or by following us on social media outlets (Facebook and Twitter). It is important that you stay connected with your association.
In closing, please know that we have a lot to be proud of, as products of Winston-Salem State University---"So Hard to be A Ram". It is with warm sentiments and extreme honor that I serve, proudly, as President of our alumni association!
