Since becoming involved with the Alumni Board in 1994, Connie Hodson’s
thoughtful, creative touch has added a new dimension to both the
Alumni Association and her alma mater. Connie has experience on
numerous prestigious boards, including the Art Institute of Chicago’s
Sustainers, the University of Chicago Children’s Hospital Committee,
and Northwestern University Women’s Board.
Her volunteer experience has helped her contribute both a broad
perspective and exceptional organizational skills to Moravian. As
Alumni Association president, she traveled from her Chicago area
home to Bethlehem to attend meetings and speak at events, including
President Rokke’s inauguration. Under her leadership the Alumni
Association completed a strategic plan that expanded its outreach
to a more national level and garnered new respect at the institutional
level. During this time she also proved to be an effective advocate
and spokesperson for financial support for her alma mater.
In her quest to understand Moravian’s culture, she has attended
classes, met with students, and has built lasting relationships
with members of the College community. At the same time, she has
brought Moravian to Chicago, organizing numerous Chicago area alumni
events and reaching out to area alumni.
Connie has provided essential strategic and financial leadership,
first as the chair of the Commission on the Future’s Student Life
Task Force, and currently as a trustee. In recognition of her vision,
financial support, and her dedicated service to Moravian, the Alumni
Association was proud to recognize Connie Stirling Hodson with the
Medallion of Merit on May 21.
