EMCC Alumni Association
Jason Green is president of the EMCC Alumni Association. Here's a look at his message in the April 2012 issue of The Lions' Pride alumni magazine:
How sweet it is to be a part of the EMCC family! So many great things have happened this year and so many more are expected.
Congratulations first to the EMCC Lion football team and coaches for bringing the NJCAA national championship home to Scooba. Everyone knows who and where we are now. I also congratulate all of the EMCC athletes and coaches for earning the prestigious Halbrook Award given annually to the school with the highest percentage of student athletes graduating. What a tremendous recruiting tool – great athletics with great academics!
For those of you who have not visited Scooba lately – WOW!
The new football stadium is second to none. The baseball and softball facilities are first-class. The new student union will be a great place to gather and create memories to share in the future. And the Chapel in the Pines, along with the new Orr Center for Christian Activity, is a special place for current students and alumni to give thanks and ask for continued blessings.
There is no doubt each alum has his or her own special memories about time spent at EMCC, or EMJC, and now is always the time to share these memories. So, how can you participate? Keep in touch with us through the EMCC Development Foundation. The foundation is a constant source of information about the happenings and needs of EMCC as well as stewards of our rich history.
Many of us, including myself, were benefactors of scholarship money provided through the generosity of those who attended before us. With reductions in state funding each year, it is more important than ever to support the foundation and ensure the stability of EMCC will last for generations to come.
As president of the alumni association, I pledge my support to the administration, faculty, staff and students and I will work to promote and protect the great name of our school. Please join me in celebrating a year of unparalleled excellence at EMCC.
“Who ya rootin for? SCOOBA TECH!”
