On March 7th Northrise University hosted the first ever Northrise Alumni BBQ at the Northrise University Main Campus. The event attracted nearly 60 alumni who had a wonderful time recounting the joys of having been at Northrise and sharing about their journeys after leaving Northrise.
Mrs. Kalelwa C. Chitete, the Northrise Alumni Coordinator, welcomed everyone in her opening remarks and eagerly expressed anticipation for the work that Northrise alumni could accomplish by collaborating together.
A key note guest was Moriah Weston, the Coordinator for Australian Christian Churches International Relief. ACCIR is the Aid and Development arm of the Australian Christian Churches movement. In her remarks, Moriah shared her role in monitoring and training through ACCIR. She went on to communicate her excitement to witness the positive impact the Alumni Association will have on Zambian communities and her eagerness to work alongside the Alumni Association in the future.
Mrs. Nshindano, the Media and Communications Manager at Northrise, shared on the newly implemented Go Far! Campaign, a brand and recruitment campaign that focuses on building the Northrise image by sharing various aspects of the University, including alumni success stories, in an effort to increase visibility and reach. She encouraged alumni to participate in the campaign by sharing their success stories as these stories are unique and attest to the quality education and success of Northrise graduates. Northrise graduates go far and together are transforming the nation of Zambia.
