I look forward to helping strengthen our alumni association into a close-knit community where we connect past students to the current university’s mission and goals.

I am excited to see and encourage our alumni to be more involved. Staying in contact with classmates and professors is special. It makes it all the more special now, having a daughter who attends UM.

Ashlyn Nichols ’22
As an alumna, I am honored to say I’ve graduated from UM. UM has provided me with all the skills and tools I need to thrive in my current professional career. But it’s so much deeper than that…I’ve been spiritually prepared to be a light in a broken world.

I love the university and have had a continuous attachment. The camaraderie of friendship and belonging to a “family” is special.

Ira Bates ’04
UM is special. I want to see more alumni join together to serve a common purpose, while also being served by one another.

I love our university’s biblical foundation. The character and integrity the University of Mobile strives to instill in everything they do is what I value most as an alumnus. I am very honored to call the University of Mobile my university and to serve on this council.
