The Delta State Alumni Association will welcome an important group back to campus this weekend for Homecoming. The Alumni Association will host a social for former presidents of the Delta State National Alumni Association on Saturday, October 27 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the Hugh Ellis Walker Alumni Foundation House.
“We’ve been fortunate to have had great people in the past serve our National Alumni Association as President, so it is always great for us to get together in the name of Delta State,” said Past President John Cox. “I am looking forward to seeing some old friends this weekend.”
“It’s very important that the university continues to reach out to our former Presidents of the Alumni Association,” said Jeffrey Farris, director of Alumni Affairs. “Their commitment to their alma mater runs deep, and their legacy will live forever in the life of the university.”
