BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- The Western Washington University track & field and cross country program has launched its Connection Campaign to reconnect with alumni and former student-athletes are encouraged to fill out an alumni questionnaire as part of the campaign.
The online alumni questionnaire is hosted on WWUVikings.com and will help the program to have up-to-date contact information in order for WWU track & field and cross country to share program updates with all the alumni who have helped build the rich tradition and history of the program.
The following is a message from the WWU track & field and cross country program:
In 1913 Washington State Normal School at Bellingham (or Western Washington University as we know it today) adopted track and field as one of its varsity collegiate sports. With the legendary Sam Carver at the helm Western began to build the legacy that it is today. Many student-athletes have represent WWU to help build our incredible tradition. They have made a significant impact on their program, their teammates and their coaches.
It is for this reason that one of the core values of our track & field and cross country teams is our investment in the young men and women that come through our program. But over the years we have lost contact with them and for this we adamantly apologize and are seeking to amend. Student-athletes that invested so much time, energy and passion into their sport have been out of the loop regarding the inner working of their ever-growing program.
This season we are making a concerted effort to reconnect with our Alumni by launching the Connection Campaign and we need your help!.Here is what we hope to do:
- If you haven't gotten a chance to update your information in the last two years please follow the link T&F AND XC ALUMNI CONNECTION QUESTIONNAIRE to keep us in the loop.
- If you are still in contact with your WWU teammates send them this information so they can reconnect too.
- Come to our WWU Ralph Vernacchia Track & Field Meet (April 28) at Civic Stadium to celebrate head coach Pee Wee Halsell's 30 years of coaching at Western
- Help us in running our two home meets (WWU Quad Meet -- April 6 and WWU Ralph Vernacchia Track & Field Meet -- April 28) OR compete alongside other alumni as a part of Team Salty.
We've always had a rich history of great students, outstanding athletes and fantastic people. We hope you will reconnect with our WWU track & field and cross country family. We are all really looking forward to hearing from you.
