Dear Bulldog Family,
It has been a tremendous honor to serve you as national president of the Mississippi State University Alumni Association this past year. Witnessing firsthand the positive impact that the MSU Alumni Association and our alumni and friends are making on MSU is truly an exciting thing.
This past year, we had a record 43,772 alumni and friends that were active members in the MSU Alumni Association. These loyal alumni and friends, through the Infinite Impact campaign, supported Mississippi State University with generous contributions to the tune of $106 million, setting an all-time record for gifts to MSU in a one-year period.
Our chapter programs continue to provide great opportunities for our alumni and friends to join together for Mississippi State University and support current and future students through chapter scholarship funds. This past year, our alumni chapters hosted 714 events for our alumni and friends to reconnect and support Mississippi State. We are grateful for all of our chapter leaders and volunteers and thank them for their dedicated service to MSU and to our alumni, students and friends.
We are excited to have Jeff Davis, our alumni executive director, leading our seasoned and talented MSU Alumni Association staff. They are working hard to provide the highest level of service to our alumni, students, and friends, and provide meaningful opportunities to connect alumni and friends to one another as well as to MSU. We are also excited to welcome new members of the national board and welcome back our returning board members. We appreciate their commitment and service to MSU.
I encourage each of our alumni and friends to make your own impact on Mississippi State University.
There are many ways to show your support and make a positive impact. A few include:
• Wear maroon and white and promote MSU in your community;
• Encourage talented students in your area to visit, apply to, and attend MSU;
• Display your MSU pride through participating in the MSU license plate program;
• Become/remain an active alumni member by making a gift to MSU each year;
• Participate in your local alumni chapter by volunteering and/or attending events;
• Encourage other alumni and friends of MSU that you know to do the same.
I am excited to continue serving as your national president over this next year, and I am so thankful for all that you do to support and promote Mississippi State University!
