Update your information for the W&L Alumni Directory!

Dear Bluegrass Chapter Alumni,

We are starting our collaborative effort to verify basic alumni data for inclusion in the 2010 alumni directory, Washington and Lee Alumni Today. We are using Harris Connect, the same trusted partner that has produced our last several directories. Here is the best and fastest way for you to help. As early as next week, you will get an email from Washington and Lee University (; the subject line will say Verification of Alumni Information. Make sure it clears your spam filter.

This email will include a link for you to quickly check and correct your current information online. PLEASE NOTE: If you verify and submit your info online right away (and include an optional picture or narrative), you are done, except for the offer to buy a copy of this attractive and popular publication later in the process. However, if you do not update and submit your information online, Harris will be contacting you for that purpose, as they have in past years.
Please help us get your information right so that the directory will be as helpful as possible. Respond to the first email from Harris, click the link, verify your information and submit!

Thank you for your help on this important project.
