Hello Fellow Alumni,
How fast a year can pass; it seems like only weeks since our last alumni celebration. I would like to remind you that our alumni weekend is April 13-15, 2012. We hope to see many of you there. It is a special one for me as it is my 25th Anniversary for the class of 1987. I am looking forward to seeing my classmates, as well as celebrating the honored 60th, 50th, and 10th year anniversary classes.
Our theme this year is “Seasons of Service.” Service is an integral part of Loma Linda University’s mission statement. Over the years, nursing has flourished in the service to others, not only abroad, but in our own communities locally. While the seasons and years have changed, our quality of nursing service has not. We have seen changes in how to deliver the care, but the steadfast education on the human touch is the staple of our education here at Loma Linda University School of Nursing. We have been around for over 100 years because God has blessed our mission service to others.
We hope as you come celebrate and reminisce about your education here at Loma Linda that you also remember and give thanks to the One who gives us wholeness. Welcome back to school! We look forward to seeing you alumni weekend.
I would like to leave you with these thoughts from Matthew 25:34-46, take the time to read the whole passage about service, but I would like to end with the quote found in Matthew 25:40:
“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’”(KJV).
God bless you all,
Zelne Zamora, DNP, RN, ‘87
