Dear LSN alumni members,
As I write this final message as your president, we are still fighting the Covid pandemic but things are looking up. Hopefully, everyone who wants a Covid vaccination will be able to get one or two (depending on which vaccine you receive) by the end of May.
Therefore, I am optimistic about holding our Annual Reunion this August 6th and 7th. We hope this will be a gala celebration as we will be holding a double celebration. If your graduation year ended in a “0”, “1”, “5´or “6”, this is your anniversary year. Fifty-year anniversary classes are those who graduated in 1970 and 1971.
Just a short update on LSN which has been bought by a new company and we are told the company is excited about the school of nursing. Current plans include renovating the School building. As a result, there are no current students (partially because of the pandemic interfering with education) until May 2021. Those students will graduate in June 2022. We hope to update you further at the Reunion.
Remember, the alumni association has two sources for you to get information regarding the alumni, school, and your classmates since we no longer are able to publish the bulletin. You can reach us through facebook.com/groups/lutheranlsn.org/ or through our website at www.alumnilsn.org.
Susie Klapp, our database manager, requests that if you received this mailing in error, please contact her through the website or at 1635 Paddlewheel Circle, Jefferson City, MO. 65109-1293. If you have had a change of address, please update your contact information on our website. Familiarize yourself with the website in order to view news of the Lutheran School of Nursing, information of the annual Alumni Reunion, submitting “class news” and much more. Remember, you have to be a member of the Alumni Association to get contact information for other classmates.
We hope to see you on August 6th and 7th to celebrate our two year Gala celebration. Stay safe, wear your masks until no longer necessary and keep social distancing until this pandemic is over.

Dear LSN Alumni members,
This is a difficult time not only in our country but in the world. It is an especially difficult time for nurses, especially those working with patients with COVID-19. For those nurses who are retired, there may be a feeling of guilt that we are no longer able to give nursing care to those in need. Even though we might want to step in and help, we know we would not have the energy or, perhaps, not even the skills to care for these sick patients. To all alumni members who are on the front lines and working so hard to care for COVID-19 and nonCOVID-19 patients, words cannot express our thanks to all of you and our prayers are with you. May you continue to have the stamina to carry out your duties and to remain healthy.
As of this writing, I wish to encourage you to stay home if you are able, stay safe and healthy.
Mary Ann Kohring, Board President
