The Northwest Mississippi Community College Alumni Association Board of directors met recently to discuss plans for its upcoming year.
This year the Alumni Association plans to sponsor the Alumnus of the Year and the Sports Hall of Fame during the college’s 2018 Homecoming festivities on Sept. 27. They will also be assisting with the Ranger Bluegrass Festival, presented by Gateway Tire on Oct. 13 at the Northwest Farm.
The board is made up of officers, a representative from each of the 11-county district the college serves and two at-large members. A Northwest staff, faculty and student are also chosen in an effort to improve communication between the Alumni Association and the college.
“The Alumni board invites all Northwest alumni to become members of the Alumni Association. Our members receive advance notice of alumni activities, free admission to on-campus regular season athletic events and free admission to fine arts events,” said Patti Gordon, director of Alumni Affairs.
Nominations for Alumnus of the Year and Sports Hall of Fame can be found on the alumni page at northwestms.edu. For more information, contact Gordon at 662.560.1112 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
