In response to the 4/15/2011 post, “My Property Tax Appraisal – Part 1,” The Big Easy writes: As I see it, part of the problem is that: 1. A large percentage of the population is in the “baby boomer” category. 2. Baby boomers, and many others for that matter, have little connection to education, much less educators. 3. The perception of many in category 2 is, “I don’t need education at this time in my life. Thus, I have no burning desire to support educators, especially with my money.” 4. I do “need” firefighters and police officers, especially in the world we now live. I have an idea. What if we stayed in touch with our alumni and kept them involved? Really involved and not just once a year at homecoming football game. Newsletters, open invitation to visit, alumni competitions between classes, etc. (someone more creative than me could surely take this and run with it). The bottom line is that we have to do a better job of marketing the product – the value of education, not just for today’s student, but also for today’s society. Where better to start than with those who can relate – alumni? Trust me, I’m a Doctor. Think. Work. Achieve.
