Homecoming is our favorite time of year. Everyone just seems happier, has more school spirit and is excited for the year to come. One of the best parts is having our alumni come back to Kirksville. During Homecoming 2013, we had 33 of our most cherished alumni return to campus as special honorees: Golden Alumni diploma recipients.
Our Goldens, as we fondly refer to them, returned to Truman to celebrate their 50th reunion. This past Homecoming, we honored graduates from the class of 1963 and prior. We were so honored to have this year’s Goldens at the Homecoming 2013 Banquet, where they donned caps and gowns and participated in a special diploma ceremony with University President Troy Paino.
The fun didn’t stop there. The Golden Alumni also attended a special luncheon on Saturday where they shared stories and anecdotes from what campus was like in 1963. It was a truly remarkable event!
This year’s Homecoming will honor the graduating class for 1964 and prior. If you would like to participate, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Homecoming is set for Oct. 10-12, so mark your calendars now! The Alumni Office will also send out a form a few months before Homecoming if you are interested in joining the fun!
