The Orlean Beeson School of Education Alumni Advisory Board serves as an alumni advisory committee for the school. The committee meets minimally once a year to brainstorm and share creative ideas for connecting with all of Samford University’s education alumni.

The Advisory Board was originally formed in 2012 as The Centennial Planning Committee to assist in the planning of Orlean Beeson School of Education's Centennial Celebration. At the culmination of the centennial, the education school and committee were so overjoyed by the new-found connections and relationships that a decision was made for the group to continue meeting. Thus, the Centennial Plus Committee was established. The group was renamed in 2019 to better reflect the work of its members.

The primary meeting takes place annually during the summer. Additionally, the group meets for casual coffees at local venues throughout the year and are updated of current opportunities and events taking place through email.

We are proud of our alumni and we encourage you to join us!
