Return to Evergreen 2021

Thanks for joining us at Return to Evergreen 2021

On Saturday, November 6th, we gathered—virtually—for a celebration of our alumni, the Greener spirit of life-long learning, and Evergreen's 50th anniversary.

During the event we:

  • Heard from the 2021 Joseph Albert Dear Distinguished Alumni Award recipient Cheryl Batalon Fambles '82, Chief Executive Officer for Pacific Mountain Workforce Development.
  • Introduced Evergreen's new leaders, President John Carmichael and Executive Vice President Dr. Dexter Gordon.
  • Enjoyed a dynamic conversation featuring President John Carmichael, Dr. Dexter Gordon and Cheryl Batalon Fambles exploring highlights from Evergreen's fifty-year history and projecting the strengths of our alumni, students, and college into Evergreen's next fifty years. 
  • Learned of the insights of Evergreen’s 2021 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) recipients through on-demand lightning talks.
