President's Message

DMV Alumni Chapter

Serving Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia

Greetings Xavierites and FOXes,

Welcome to a new year and to the Xavier University of Louisiana DMV Alumni Chapter. What an honor it is to serve as your president for the 2018-2020 biennium. My Xavier experience was the time of my life, and part of what made it so was the strong bonds and connections forged with the administrators, faculty, staff and students. They were my mentors, my friends and my accountability partners. My time at Xavier was one of growth and love, and it helped me become the woman I am today.

The shared journey we all walked as Xavierites continues to connect us.  I would like to challenge you to recall your time at Xavier, remember the relationships that made you the exceptional person you are, and share the gifts that you have gained over the years. Our best self is not us alone. We are strengthened through our connections. Our youth will grow through our knowledge and wisdom, but only if we open ourselves to sharing those gifts. 

Join me in continuing the Xavier practice of excellence here in the DMV area. Come to a meeting. Connect with your chapter leadership. Renew your membership. Volunteer with us. Reconnect with your Xavier family. Together we can build an amazing chapter focused on creating and growing the best in us, and the best in our youth with dreams of Xavier. You are the key to our continued success.

I am excited and so passionate about the coming year. Thank you for trusting me with the vision of our chapter's future and growth, built on the foundation our shared Xavier love. Together we will create a beautiful legacy. Hail all hail XU!


For Xavier,

Denise R. Dunn
