JACKSON, Miss.—The Delta State University Alumni Association will be traveling to Jackson for the annual Greater Jackson Area Alumni Event at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 23. This year’s event will be held at the Mississippi Children’s Museum.
Delta State President William N. LaForge, along with Alumni Association staff and other University guests, will be sharing news from campus. Entertainment will be provided by Cole Furlow, an alum of the prestigious Delta Music Institute (DMI) at Delta State.
“We are excited about the opportunity to get together at the Children’s Museum of Mississippi and celebrate Delta State and the many ways that it shows up in our lives here in the Jackson Metro area,” said Wendolyn Stevens ’13, ‘14, DSU Jackson Alumni Chapter president and member of the Alumni Association Board of Directors.
“We are optimistic about the event, hearing from campus leaders, and the fundraisers we are hosting to provide scholarships for more students from this area to attend DSU,” she added.
Proceeds from the event’s silent auction and 50/50 raffle will benefit the Greater Jackson Area Scholarship fund, which is awarded to incoming freshmen from the Jackson Metro area who plan to attend Delta State. Previous scholarship recipients will be honored and recognized at this year’s event.
