The Winston-Salem Distance Education MSW Program held its first ever alumni reunion picnic on Sat., May 22 at Salem Lake in Winston-Salem. Event photos

Despite a few showers in the late morning, graduates from the last five years gathered under an open air shelter overlooking a beautiful 365-acre lake, surrounded by 7 miles of walking trails. Children played on the nearby playground and some alums rented canoes to paddle around the lake when the sun finally broke through the clouds. Grilled hot dogs and hamburgers were accompanied by many wonderful dishes brought by the alums from the Winston-Salem program.

Graduates from as far away as Atlanta, Ga. to Greenville, N.C. made the trip to re-connect with classmates, family, faculty and friends. Approximately 40 people attended the reunion picnic with hopes for an even greater turnout next year.
