The Gondar College of Medical Science (GCMS) Alumni Steering Committee in the US, has been working very hard to jump start the Alumni Network from scratch, organizing their first Reunion event in Washington DC in September 2012. They have also been on recent visits to the University of Gondar.
The Steering Committee held its first GCMS Alumni Reunion in the USA in Washington DC on Sunday September 23rd, 2012. It was a very joyous and at times emotional event as people who have not met each other for decades were able to meet for the first time! Alumni starting from the first batch of 1985 graduates to the most recent ones from few years ago were represented. Dr. Yonas Yilma, Clinical Director of Gondar University Hospital officially represented the University of Gondar, whilst Dr. Kassahun Desalegn, a Dermatologist from Gondar was also able to attend. Other alumni guests from Ethiopia included Dr. Tequam Debebe, Chairman of Radiology at Addis Ababa University and Dr. Muluken Bekele, ENT specialist from Hawassa University.
During the event the steering committee, on behalf of all the GCMS alumni, presented a recognition plaque to Professor Mallede Maru
for his role in establishing GCMS and making it through the difficult early years of the college. His son, Dr. Mehrette Mallede Maru received the award on behalf of his father. Following the award ceremony, a video recording of Professor Mallede was shown, where he thanked the alumni for the recognition bestowed on him.
The first reunion event was a great success and has shown that some effort and dedication people can come together and work for a good cause of supporting their Alma Matter and at the same time remember the old good days.
