Join UHP Alum & Send Dr. Holt to NYC!

Dear TSU Honors Program Alumni and Supporters:

I hope all is well!  Sending a quick update your way as a follow-up to the original message below.  
  • VIDEO TRIBUTE:  We are still working to develop a commemorative video featuring UHP alumni and supporters sharing thoughts on Dr. Holt's legacy to share with her in during her vacation and during additional TSU retirement celebrations.  To date, we have received 2 videos, and we are hopeful that your help we can increase this number.  You do not have to donate to send a video, so feel free to join the effort!  
    • Submission Info:  Please send a 30-90 second video sharing your favorite memory of Dr. Holt and/or reflections on her legacy to be included in a commemorative video to - [email redacted] - by March 20, 2013.
  • VACATION/GIFT:  The planning team for Dr. Holt's trip/meeting with alumni decided it would be best to shift the travel/meeting weekend date to June 16-19, 2013 to ensure higher attendance and responses from alumni. (The actual alumni meeting with Dr. Holt being held on Saturday, June 15, 2013) 
    • Dr. Holt's vacation activities, paid for through the generous donations of alumni/supporters, will take up the remainder of her stay in NYC.  
    • The donation page is still up and running, and we are very close to the goal, so feel free to spread the word!  
  • ALUMNI MEETING WITH DR. HOLT:  If you are interested in taking part in Dr. Holt's meeting with alumni regarding the future of the program, please feel free to contact Jerry Johnson (Jerry.Johnson@morganstanley.comto RSVP by May 15, 2013.  
    • For those who would like to join the meeting via conference call, please RSVP as well and mention the call-in option.  Contact information for the meeting will be provided closer to the meeting date in June.  




ORIGINAL MESSAGE:



Dear TSU Honors Program Alumni and Supporters:


On Thursday, January 31, 2013 one of TSU's greatest leaders retired, Dr. Sandra Holt.  To celebrate Dr. Holt's retirement as Director of the Tennessee State University Honors Program and over 40 years of service to TSU at large, please join the University Honors Program Alumni Affinity Group in honoring Dr. Holt with an all-expense paid vacation to NEW YORK CITY! NYC is one of Dr. Holt's favorite cities, and your contribution can make this a much-needed vacation for her to remember. The day-to-day details of the trip, scheduled for late March, are still in the early planning stages and ready for alumni input/support.  We are also working to develop a commemorative video featuring UHP alumni and supporters sharing thoughts on Dr. Holt's legacy to share with her in March (see below for video submission details).  With your help we can work together to make this overall goal an even bigger surprise with exciting moments for her at every turn!  

Each contributor's name will be listed in Dr. Holt's commemorative video.  PLEASE be sure to keep the details of this effort (trip & video) TOP SECRET. Thanks in advance for your support!  

Looking forward to moving forward,

The UHP Alumni Affinity Group
