Message from the Alumni Society President

Jenna Mitchler, CEHD Alumni Society President

Dear Fellow Alumni,

Hello! I am excited to introduce myself as the incoming president of the CEHD Alumni Society Board. I have been an active member of the board since fall 2019, serving on the Student Relations Committee and advocating for the University through MN201. I am honored to take on this new leadership role with a big thanks to our previous president, La Tasha Shevlin.

The Alumni Society Board is made up of an engaged group of CEHD alumni who aim to develop and grow relationships among alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of the college, enhance the student experience, and advocate for the college. My aim over the next year is to help us continue to do just that. In fact, we are looking forward to a full year of activities that bring together our incredible community (starting with Homecoming on September 29) and hope you will join us! Whether you’re a recent graduate just entering the workforce, a mid-career professional wanting to meet other alumni, or a retiree interested in continuing education, there is a program that you will enjoy.

I’m proud to be part of CEHD and its commitment to success for all students, and happy for the chance to contribute my talents to the Alumni Society Board. We want to respond to your interests, so please reach out with your ideas, memories, and feedback anytime at Thanks for your loyalty and support.
