The Delta State University Bolivar County Alumni Chapter recently met to plan their upcoming events. Thursday, February 28, the chapter will hold the third annual Bolivar County Alumni Night at Walter Sillers Coliseum. The Lady Statesmen and Statesmen basketball teams will be competing against West Florida. The Alumni Association will have a booth set up to give out gifts at the game to alumni who update their information. The games begin at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Make sure to join the Facebook event for Bolivar County Alumni Night at Walter Sillers on the Alumni Association’s page, Statesmen Graduates.
“We would love to see as many DSU alumni and their families at Walter Sillers for DSU alumni night at the men’s and women’s basketball games,” said Bolivar County Chapter President Ann Marie Mayers Pate. “As local alumni, we are in such a unique position to be able to continually enjoy the events offered on campus much as we did during our college days. Come out and renew your relationship with your university and bring out your children to enjoy the night as well!”
The group also discussed the upcoming Bolivar County Alumni Chapter Meeting. The annual crawfish boil will be held April 5 at the Alumni House. There will also be a silent auction. One hundred percent of the money raised will go to scholarships for Bolivar County students attending Delta State.
“I want to remind everyone that we have our annual Bolivar County Alumni Meeting and Crawfish boil at the Hugh Ellis Walker Alumni-Foundation House,” said Will Bradham, vice president of the Bolivar County Chapter. “I challenge everyone, every business, every individual, to help us sponsor this event. It’s always a good time with friends and fellow alumni, plus, it benefits students in our area.”
