Meridian Community College Wednesday inducted five distinguished graduates into the Flying Eagle Hall of Fame.
Radio executive Eddie Holladay, Stennis Space Center director Gene Goldman, insurance executive Bud Thompson, Riley Hospital CEO Pam Tvarkunas, and MCC's physical plant director Terry Williams were inducted this year. The ceremony kicks off homecoming festivities.
"Really these people represent the best that we have to offer at MCC," said MCC president Dr. Scott Elliott. "They represent our aspirations for every student, that they'll go on from here, and not only excel in their careers but also be servant leaders in their community. And if we can accomplish that at MCC, we feel like we've done our job."
Four MCC employees were also inducted into the college's Talon Club, recognizing 30-years of service: Deborah Stokes, Anita Quinnelly, Barbara Bishop and Carey Smith.
