STARKVILLE, Miss.—The Mississippi State University Alumni Association is announcing four new leaders of its student organization known as the Alumni Delegates.
Alumni Delegates officers for this year include:
—Sophie Jones of Birmingham, Alabama, president, a junior biomedical engineering major;
—Logan Strietelmeier of Collierville, Tennessee, vice president of member education, a sophomore mechanical engineering major;
—Lauren Nichols of Vestavia Hills, Alabama, vice president of public relations, a junior anthropology major; and
—William “Will” Baumhauer of Pascagoula, secretary, a junior accounting major.
Founded in 1980, the Alumni Delegates organization serves to help the university and the Alumni Association maintain strong ties with MSU students and the more than 155,000 living graduates of the land-grant institution. The 53-member group is often the first point of contact for graduates, friends and other special campus guests and assists with tailgate gatherings, class reunions, graduation ring presentations and senior celebrations, among other events.
For the past seven years, the group has distributed more than $75,000 generated through ticket sales for a semesterly “free tuition drawing” program. Members also created the MSU Alumni Delegates Endowed Scholarship in 2015, which benefits entering freshmen and transfer student recipients.
