Graduation Pledge Alliance - Last Update for 2004-2005



Hello Pledge Organizers!


Thanks for the many who have submitted a report on this year’s activities and have told me who will be your contact(s) for next year. But not all have, so PLEASE SEND ME THE BELOW INFORMATION


1. Who will be your school's pledge contact(s) for next year? (Even if it's you, please let me know, as a lack of a response indicates to us that you are gone permanently, making it difficult and time consuming to reach the new contact next year, if one exists.) As we always say, it is best if the contact person is the representative of a committee running the project, within some permanent organization/department/program, to insure continuity.


2. Unless you have already done so, PLEASE send a report on what happened at your school with the Pledge. We realize folks are at different stages regarding the Pledge—from full institutionalization of the project on campus to barely beginning work on it. Whatever you can tell us is fine, with the more info you provide, the better: what Pledge activities you did this year; how many signed the pledge and what % of students that represents; what materials were given to pledge signers–cards/ribbons/certificates; what happened on graduation day; what media--on and off campus--covered the pledge or were contacted.  


Thanks so much for your work on the project this year. I look forward to working with you again next year if you are still around. Otherwise, I wish you well in carrying out the Pledge and will look forward to wring with those who will follow in your steps will contact your
