Rhonda Cunningham, CFRE visits Loyalist PR

Executive Director Rhonda Cunningham, CFRE of the Northumberland Hills Hospital Foundation stopped by today to share her experiences and insights with Loyalist PR students.

From the donor pyramid to how to ask for a major gift, Rhonda held our attention for more than an hour as she told stories, answered questions and shared with us her incredible passion for health care fundraising.

Her commitment to her community and to enhancing the learning of future fundraisers and communicators is truly a credit to her.

Thank you for stopping by, Rhonda -- you are a real inspiration!

Academic year is off to a yarn-tastic start!

A big WELCOME to our new Loyalist PR students who began classes this week here at Loyalist College. Of course, no Orientation Week would be completed without a few getting-to-know you games... 

... a great opportunity to create new ties (though we did come unravelled at times). 

We look forward to a great, fun-filled year ahead with plenty of learning and new opportunities -- and no, we're not "stringing" you along. 

Bad puns aside, stay tuned -- it's going to be a great year!
