Despite canceling in-person events due to COVID-19, the Alberta Alumni Chapter continued to meet monthly this spring for its First Friday Lunches via Zoom. Another new initiative for the alumni is offering résumé reviews for undergraduates. Volunteer reviewers score résumés independently, using an agreed upon scoring system. Video consultations will be offered to participating chapter members with Alberta alumni who are employed in post-secondary career services.
The Arlington Alumni Chapter congratulates alumni on their recent achievements. Ignacio Nunez, Arlington ’75, was elected to the Arlington City Council for District 5, which includes the UT Arlington campus. In January, Carl Esposito, Arlington ’06, began his role as Director of Admissions and Marketing at The British International School of Kuala Lumpur.
