Greetings BAR Heels,
As we all continue to face daily challenges due to the pandemic, the planning committee continues to think of you and your families and pray that all is well.
After reviewing responses from the pandemic contingency survey (sent out in May), plus several months of committee deliberations, it is with heavy hearts that we have cancelled all in-person events for this year’s Black Alumni Reunion.
Following increased and overwhelming concerns about large-scale social gatherings, in the wake of this pandemic, we know this is the best decision based on the information we have today. The health and well-being of our alumni, families, students and staff is our primary concern.
This was a very difficult decision. We were excited that our programming would honor and celebrate 40 years of BAR. But as the saying goes, “Every setback is a setup for a comeback.” Our goal is to have our in-person 40th anniversary celebrations during the 2021 Black Alumni Reunion.
Although we will not gather in person this year, we have continued to meet to discuss ways in which we can connect and engage with you virtually. Be sure to watch your email and BAR social media for additional information.
Be well. Stay safe. Go Heels.
