Central College alumni are doing a world of good every day for young people. Heather Burr Isaacson ’97 has been introducing students from Des Moines’ Findley Elementary to Central for years. The video above was created in celebration of the 10-year partnership between Central and the By Degrees Foundation, featuring seniors from Des Moines’ North High School — the first class to partner with Central since third-grade year.
As alumni, you have many opportunities to be involved with students and prospective students. The alumni engagement office seeks volunteers to engage with students admitted to Central for Fall 2024 through our Adopt-A-Student program. Join in our efforts as we continue building relationships with our future Central Dutch! To date, we have nearly 900 students admitted!
The annual Career Kickstarter program needs alumni mentors and or other Pella area professionals for micro-internships on Monday, Jan. 8, and Tuesday, Jan. 9. Contact Jodie Smith, associate director of career development.
As we close another year together, we are so thankful for each of you. We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2024.
