Welcome Home.

Message from the FVSUNAA President

Greetings Wildcats,

Homecoming is almost here and we are excited about seeing you again. We hope you will participate in activities we have planned for your entertainment pleasure. Please look forward to a few new added touches. On Friday, October 27, 2017, at 2 p.m., the FVSUNAA will host the inaugural Gold Coat Ceremony in the Hunt Memorial Library. FVSUNAA Hall of Fame 2017 Inductees will receive their iconic gold jackets. Inductees this year are: Ed Boston (Category: Business), Gracy Barksdale (Category: Law), Bernice Johnson (Category: Blue and Gold), Evelyn Johnson (Category: Community Service), George Koonce (Category: Education), and Jo Ann Gibson Robinson, posthumously, (Category: Humanitarian). This ceremony marks the first step toward their induction into the Hall of Fame which will be held during the Hunt-Bond-Troup Gala in the Student Amenities Center at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 27. Please come celebrate and support the inductees.

On Saturday, October 28, the FVSUNAA will host the Alumni Members’ Tailgate for dues-paying members with proof of membership. This tailgate is being provided as a token of appreciation for financial alumni who continue to support the alumni association and its programs throughout the year. The tailgate is FREE for members and $10 for non-dues paying members. This is also an opportunity for non-dues paying members to join the association. Membership applications will be available onsite. The alumni tent will be located in front of the Alva Tabor Building across from the Woodward Gymnasium and will be open from 11 a.m. until all food is gone. In addition, some paraphernalia will be available for sale under the tent. Please stop by and visit us. We look forward to seeing you.

Sincerely,
LouAnn Gross
President, FVSU National Alumni Association, Inc.
