Pioneer Happenings

Let me introduce Myself

What’s more exciting? The introduction of IRSC’s mascot, the Peregrine Falcon, or the introduction of Laura Midkiff, our new Alumni Relations Director? “Pioneer” was revealed as IRSC’s mascot in May 2022 and Laura joined the IRSC Foundation a little over a year later. A huge fan of our mascot, Laura has almost literally swooped in with enthusiasm and overwhelming school spirit.

A message from Laura:

I am pleased to introduce myself as your new Alumni Relations Director at Indian River State College. I am thrilled to be part of IRSC’s rich history that has been cultivated these last 63 years and even more excited to contribute to the next 63 years of our legacy!

As your Alumni Relations Director, I will provide and encourage new, meaningful ways for our alumni to engage with their alma mater, one another, and the greater Treasure Coast community by designing outreach campaigns, hosting events, and updating our database system.

I am committed to keeping you up-to-date with what’s happening on our campuses. Look for our Alumni Newsletter in your inbox and contact me as I’d love to hear your story. I aim to keep you engaged in an ongoing, rewarding relationship with IRSC long after you’ve graduated because your journey began with us. Welcome home, Pioneers!
