Welcome Bedsole Alumni & Friends

The J.L. Bedsole Alumni Association seeks to allow its members opportunities to remain involved in the J.L. Bedsole community and to engage them in program planning for current Bedsole Scholars as described in The J.L. Bedsole Scholars Program mission statement. Alumni will be encouraged to network with Bedsole Scholars (and also one another) and provide mentoring, counseling, and where possible, employment opportunities and job search aid. Members of The J.L. Bedsole Alumni Association may also be called upon to serve on The J.L. Bedsole Selection Committee and various planning councils.
