University of Maryland Eastern Shore's Southern Maryland Alumni Chapter, Inc.
The University of Maryland Eastern Shore's Southern Maryland Alumni Chapter, Inc. is comprised of alumni and associates in the southern counties of Maryland (Charles, Calvert, St. Mary's and Southern Prince George's County). The mission of the alumni chapter is to serve and add value to the university, its students, fellow alumni and associates.
Deborah Taylor, Historian
On October 8, 2016, a group of University of Maryland Eastern Shore Alumni got together with Senator Thomas “Mac” Middleton to discuss ways to reactivate the Southern Maryland Alumni Chapter. Those in attendance were Cecelia Spinks, Apryl Gray, Tina Wilson, William Parker, Theodora Estep, William (Bill) Lilly and Deborah Taylor. We met monthly and several other alumni joined in as the group continued to meet. Garland Proctor and Owen Johnson joined the group. We were able to gain enough members to reactivate our alumni chapter. In February 2017, the Southern Maryland Alumni Chapter President, Cecelia Spinks, Vice President, Latina Wilson and Secretary, Deborah Taylor were sworn in and thus Southern Maryland Alumni Chapter was reborn. On April 26, 2021, the chapter was incorporated in the State of Maryland.
