For several hours this past Saturday, about 40 Samford graduates met in the Pete Hanna Center to discuss the ways that they can be involved in telling the Samford story to alums and other friends.  Across the years, from Grace Simmons (Class of 2011) to Pat Scofield (Class of 1949), they shared their memories of the ways in which their lives are better because of Samford.  More than 100 of our graduates have already volunteered to participate in this expanded program of alumni development.   


The world is better because Samford graduates nurture the institution that helped them to grow.
