Feel like hitting the beach?

Join fellow Ford Scholar Alumni for the Third Annual Ford Scholar Alumni Summer Get-Together on Saturday, July 16 at the Salishan Spa & Golf Resort at Gleneden Beach, located just 10 minutes from Lincoln City on the scenic Oregon Coast.

Alumni of the Ford Scholar, Ford Opportunity and Ford ReStart programs and their families are all welcome to attend the Summer Get-Together and Meet and Greet. Make it a weekend getaway or come for the day!

The Meet and Greet coordinates with the Ford Scholars Leadership Conference for the classes of 2013, 2014 and 2015 Ford Scholars.

Highlights include a morning beach cleanup and afternoon potluck with alumni and their families, followed by a networking social with alumni and current Scholars.

Alumni may wear casual and comfortable clothing for the beach cleanup and potluck and should dress for rain or shine. Those not planning to purchase a purple Ford Alumni T-shirt must wear purple – the FSAA color! Alumni should wear business casual for the evening Meet and Greet with current Ford Scholars.

More information on the event is posted at and on the FSAA Facebook Summer Get-Together event page.

Please RSVP online by June 27 at
