Message from the Alumni Association President

Dear Alumni,

As a three-time alum of the University of Kentucky College of Nursing, I would like to welcome you to the College of Nursing’s Alumni Association (CONAA)! 

You are one of more than 7,000 alumni and as a UK CON graduate, automatically a member of this dynamic organization.  We promote the College through scholarships, fellowship and information sharing and we need YOU! 

The 2020 CONAA Executive Board of Directors includes:

President:                    Dr. Paula Halcomb     
President-Elect:           Ms. Whitney Heet       

Secretary:                    Ms. Lois Lewis            
Treasurer:                    Dr. Leslie Bertram      

Past President:            Dr. Laura Hieronymus
UKAA Rep:                  Dr. Patti Howard         

Alumni Program Coordinator: Joey Conrad (ex-officio)

The Board meets quarterly and has many volunteer opportunities available.  During Homecoming Week, we host a luncheon for alumni to network, meet current students and shop/participate in a silent auction.  Proceeds benefit nursing student scholarships.  I also encourage you to join the UK Alumni Association (UKAA).  Membership benefits you and provide additional funding to CONAA.  


Please join us to help support and mentor the next generation of nursing students! For more information, please contact me or any of the Board members. 

All the best and GO CATS!
