Northwest alumni association board sets 2019 event plans

The Northwest Mississippi Community College Alumni Association Board of directors met on March 4 to discuss plans for 2019 events.

Coming up on March 22 is the Northwest Baseball Reunion honoring Coaches Jim Miles and Donny Castle.

The Ranger Bluegrass Festival, presented by Gateway Tire is set for Oct. 4 and 5 at the Northwest Farm.

The Alumni Association will sponsor the Alumnus of the Year and the Sports Hall of Fame Alumni Reception during the college’s 2019 Homecoming festivities on Oct. 10.

“Look for the Northwest Alumni Tent at Senatobia’s Five Star City Fest this year and also at Hernando’s A-Fair,” said Patti Gordon, executive director of the Office of Institutional Advancement.

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 member, faculty member and student are also chosen in an effort to improve communication between the Alumni Association and the college.
