From the Alumnae Association President
Kendra Armer ’93
As we have been celebrating Scripps’s 90th year and the inauguration of Lara Tiedens as our ninth president, we have been looking both backward and forward at our “Past, Present, Future.” We honor our history and celebrate those who came before us—earlier generations of alumnae, faculty, and staff , the eight prior presidents who advanced the mission of the College, and, of course, our visionary founder, Ellen Browning Scripps.
We have also been looking optimistically toward the future. Scripps is not the same institution as it was when it was founded, just as each of us is not the same as when we first came to Scripps. To help us move toward the future we want, the Board of Trustees is embarking on a strategic planning process for the College. Our prior strategic plan, completed in 2007, focused on Leading with Excellence, and called the Scripps community to “nothing less than excellence on all levels.” The new strategic plan will help us focus on what we want to become as we finish out our first century and embark upon our next one.
Following the College’s strategic planning process, the Alumnae Association will be updating our own strategic plan. We will be seeking alumnae input into both plans. Although the channels and timing have not been determined yet, know that you will have the opportunity to participate, so stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, if you have not yet joined the Scripps Community Network, there is no time like the present to do so!
