My name is Noel Abejo and I am the newly elected President of the Peirce College Alumni Association. I earned my associate degree in Computer Data Processing from Peirce in 1985. I also earned a Bachelor in Science from Widener University in 1996 and a Master of Science in Computer Information Science from La Salle University in 2005. I had been away from Peirce for years, and like many of you, recently realized it was time to return, get involved, and help others do the same.
As President of the Alumni Association, I fully support the College’s mission to help working adult learners further their education and advance their careers. It is a competitive workforce and a degree can be a deciding factor in advancing careers or landing that “dream job.” During my time as president, I plan to encourage our growing alumni group to become more engaged with Peirce and to help the college deliver on its mission. I also plan to help each of you leverage the Alumni Association in support of your own goals. Whether you plan to return to school for that next degree or credential, could use some support in looking for that promotion or next job, if you simply want to network with fellow friends, or you want to give back—time, talent, or treasure, I hope the Alumni Association can be your partner.
While Steven Rodriguez (Vice President), Shandai Moore-Jenkins (Secretary), and I will work diligently with our board of energized alumni to achieve our Alumni Association goals, we cannot do this without you. I invite you to join us in this important work! Please reach out to me if you have any thoughts or ideas on how to continue growing the Alumni Association or if you are interested in getting involved.
And remember that involvement with Peirce can manifest in many ways. You can volunteer your time by working directly with students or participating in Peirce events; you can share your industry expertise with our faculty and staff through our advisory boards and special panels; and you can also invest in the college’s mission by contributing to the Alumni Scholarship Fund. Any amount you give will be deeply appreciated.
Whatever your interest and capacity may be, we can find a way for you to connect and participate. As part of our alumni community, you are both valued and appreciated.
I look forward to working with all you and thank you in advance for the work we will do together.
