Holmes County reestablishes alumni chapter

Rustites in Holmes County, Miss. have a new way to stay connected to their alma mater. The Rev. Zelpha Montgomery Whatley, ’68, led the charge to reestablish the Holmes County Rust College/ Mississippi Industrial College Alumni Club with official ceremonies held on Aug. 16.

JoAnn Scott, who serves as both the director of alumni and development at Rust College said the chapter is great for the college. “The start of a new alumni chapter or the revitalization of an alumni chapter is an awesome thing,” said Scott, ’87.

“The development of these chapters seamlessly integrates our campus efforts with
our alumni club efforts throughout the state, country and the world. Our alumni clubs are crucial to the continued success of Rust College and they also help to promote strong lifelong relationships with our alumni both near and far.”
