Connecting with Alumni at the Metro SL Conference!

It was a treat to connect with 30-plus SLHS Alumni at the Metro SL Conference held on January 29-30 at the Marriot in Littleton.

Our IN TOUCH website had a booth, held some drawings but most of all, had fun visiting with SLHS alumni and meeting other conference attendees. The conference drew approximately 600 SLPs and associates from the region. Visitors to our booth included SLPA's from SLHS and we hope to collect more contact information from this group as well as our undergraduate and graduate alumni. Plans are being made to visit the CSHA conference next fall.

Winners of the drawing for "Ralphie" the stuffed CU Buffalo was Pam Woodyard Berkeland. Four other winners, Carol Pastore, Diana Erhart, Carolee (Whitney) Burnell and Kim McGarvey will receive one of two DVD's, The Dance of Conversation: Strategies for Ecnouraging Children's Language or The Storybook Journey: Into the Wind & The Stories We Live. The production of the DVDs was supported by The Louis and Harold Price Foundation, Inc., the same foundation that supports this SLHS alumni website. Sheila Goetz, former CLC director and SLHS faculty member, was key in obtaining the grant and has administered it since it's inception. She was on hand to meet and greet alumni, several of whom were her students from 1986 to 2003. Yours truly, Cynthia Gray, '76 alum and current web curator was at the booth and enjoyed meeting alumni from present and past, some of whom were students when I directed the CLC.

SLHS alumna and current faculty member Lynea Pearson and adjunct SLHS faculty member Scott Schwartz, currently with Boulder Valley School District stopped by the booth to chat with alumni also. Both faculty were presenters at the conference.
