Renasant Bank tailgates with MSU Alumni Association




The fall sports season on the Mississippi State University campus is always a time for the Bulldog faithful to gather and experience a great Southern tailgate opportunity. For every home football game this year, Renasant Bank has proudly presented festivities in conjunction with the university’s Alumni Association.

Beneath two big-top tents in front of the Leo Seal M-Club, alumni, friends and fans have enjoyed music, face painting, pompoms, “beat” stickers and complimentary food and drinks for every home game.

“We are excited to join with the MSU family this season and present the tailgate experience through the Alumni Association,” said Tommy Tomlinson, Starkville division president of Renasant Bank. “Renasant is a community oriented bank that cultivates relationships locally as the foundation for our success and MSU is a large part of the community that we support with our outreach activities.”

Tomlinson graduated from Mississippi State with a bachelor’s degree in banking and finance in 1975. He has enjoyed more than 40-years in the banking industry, specifically with Renasant since 2011.

“Renasant is a generous partner of MSU and our association, and we are grateful for the opportunity to extend MSU hospitality alongside them during sports season,” said Jeff Davis, executive director of the MSU Alumni Association.

Through the years, Renasant Bank has been a strong supporter of MSU. Among its generous gifts include the Renasant Bank Annual Scholarship, and the Renasant Bank Endowed Faculty Fellowship in Finance in the College of Business, which assists in attracting and retaining outstanding faculty and administrators. Additionally, the Renasant Bank Conference Room in the Leo W. Seal Family Business Complex is named in honor of the financial institution’s generosity.
