MSU Hosts Local Fundraiser

Lauderdale County, Miss.
The Lauderdale County Chapter of the Mississippi State University Alumni Association hosted an alumni golf tournament Friday at Briarwood Country Club.

The purpose was to raise money for scholarships at the university.

MSU president, Dr. Mark Keenum, attended the event. He says the alumni can help spread positive things about the university.

"When I talk to our alumni, I tell them you are the best ambassadors we have for our university for prospective students and parents of prospective students to see the success of Mississippi State graduates, and I want my son or daughter to be like them," Keenum said.

Mississippi State will begin its fall semester classes Aug. 19.
