Dr. Kevin G. Perry, Assistant to the Superintendent, was the featured speaker for the 8th Annual Alumni Day of Service (ADOS) for Bethune-Cookman University’s Events Luncheon. He delivered a speech entitled, “A Call To Service,” in which alumni were reminded of the University’s motto, “Enter to Learn, Depart to Serve,” and why their service is relevant and important.
During this annual event, alumni return to campus to serve the current students by providing workshops, conducting mock interviews, providing forums, and offering real life real work information and experience to students in an effort to further prepare them for life after college. Alumni are assigned to the School or College from which they earned their degree or the field of study in which they are currently working. This form of service began while Dr. Perry served as the Chairman of the Associate Trustees (Board of Visitors). It also aligns to the spirit of support and service of SLPS’s as the District strives to maintain positive connections with colleges and universities and support student pathways to success from high school to college and/or careers.
Dr. Perry has been asked to be one of the featured speakers at the Bethune-Cookman University National Alumni Convention in June.
