Message from the Alumni Association President

Dear College of Nursing Alumni, 

Welcome to the University of Kentucky (UK) College of Nursing Alumni Association (CONAA)! 

As a UK CON graduate, you are automatically a member of this dynamic organization that promotes the College through scholarships, fellowship and information sharing.  Did you know you are one of over 7,000 UK nursing alumni since 1964, and we need YOU! 

The 2018 CONAA Executive Board of Directors includes:

President:                                Laura Hieronymus    
President-Elect:                       Paula Halcomb          
Secretary:                                Lois Lewis                 
Treasurer:                                Leslie Bertram         
Past President & UKAA Rep:    Patti Howard            

Director, Alumni and Giving:  Aimee’ Baston (ex-officio),
Alumni Relations/Annual Giving:  Kerrie Moore (ex-officio),

The Board meets quarterly and has volunteer opportunities available with the following committees:  Alumni Representatives, Awards, Bylaws, Fundraising, Special Events and Student Mentoring.  On the Friday of UK Homecoming Weekend, we host a luncheon for alumni to network, meet current students and shop/participate in a silent auction.  Proceeds benefit student scholarships through the CONAA’s Boomerang Society.

I also encourage you to join the UK Alumni Association (UKAA). Membership not only benefits you personally, it also provides additional funding to CONAA.

Join us to help support and mentor the next generation of nursing students!  If I or any of the board members can be of assistance, please let me know. 

All the best and GO CATS!
