Martin University Alumni Association New President

Dorothy Herron was shocked when she went to an alumni event for Martin University in 2016, where an alumnus was receiving an award. There were about a dozen people there. “Where is everybody?” she asked.

Herron learned getting 12 people out to an alumni event was actually considered a success. It was apparent then that the alumni base was disconnected, and that can be especially harmful for an institution like Martin University that caters to underserved communities. Alumni are the ones who made it, and they’re supposed to give back.

“I realized I hadn’t done my part,” she said. “… Martin had been so good to me. It changed my life.”

Three years later, Herron, a 2006 graduate, is about to become president of the alumni association. She and other officers took their pledges Aug. 24 at the school and will start their new roles Sept. 1.

Herron believes at least part of the reason the alumni association hasn’t been very strong in the past is because the institution serves mostly nontraditional students who have jobs and families.

“We got our degree, we just went off into the wild blue yonder,” she said. “… I didn’t understand that once I graduated I needed to make it my business to give back to this university.”
