Alumni Committee

Thank you, Alumni!

Last year, the LNT Alumni Committee approved charging nominal annual dues to support alumni engagement activities. Nearly half of our 200 alumni participated, giving us the opportunity to host the North Texas Delegation of Gubernatorial Appointees, a special LNT Alumni reception to the see the new DFW Airport Administration Building, and allowed us to share the incredible story of Justin Constantine, a U.S. Marine who survived a gun-shot wound to the head.

Please consider supporting the LNT Alumni Action Committee when you receive your 2017 dues statement.

Thank you to those who supported us in 2016!
