Terisa Pittman is president of the EMCC Alumni Association. Here's a look at her message in the latest issue of The Lions' Pride alumni magazine:
Wow! Homecoming was a festive event that included parades, banquets, awards and a victory over Northwest Community College. Go Lions!
For the Class of 1981, it was a walk down memory lane as classmates tailgated before the game, reviewed our yearbook and shared precious memories. We were extremely excited about Randy Galloway, our classmate, who is the deputy center director for NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center. He was selected to be the college’s Alumnus of the Year.
Throughout the different events of the week, one constant theme arose: “This was the best two years of our lives!”
We would also like to highlight Mr. Ike Hopper, a longtime supporter of the college and member of the EMCC Development Foundation Board who received the Distinguished Service Award.
Additional congratulations are in order for the 2016 EMCC Sports Hall of Fame inductees, who are: James William “Billy” Bounds Sr. (basketball, 1950-51); James William Bounds Jr. (football, 1972-73); Willie Gillespie (football, 1979-80); Clint Hill (baseball, 1970-71); William “Gert” Hill (football/baseball, 1961-62); Terry James “Pete” McCleskey (football, 1967-68); John Santa Cruz (football, 1973-74); Edward Staten (football, 1965-66); and James Watson (football, 1968-69).
While we remember with fondness our collegiate years, let us not forget the EMCC Development Foundation, which is a constant source of information about the happenings and needs of the college.
EMCC is in the process of building new dormitories and a technical center to enrich the lives of current EMCC students and bring to them the same or better experiences as we had in our years there.
I have fully pledged my support to the administration, faculty, staff and students as Alumni Association President. When you join me in this pledge as an active financial supporter of our alumni association, it benefits our campuses and their students.
