New Co-Lin Natchez alumni group elects officers

NATCHEZ — Three local alumni of Copiah-Lincoln Community College have been elected the first officers of the Co-Lin Natchez Area Chapter of the Alumni Association.

Brian Fisher was chosen president; Andrew Calvit, vice president, and Glenda Wilson, secretary. The chapter is open to all graduates, alumni and friends of Co-Lin.

“I would like the existence of the chapter to raise awareness of the importance of Co-Lin to our community,” Fisher said. “Co-Lin produces a large amount of revenue for our area, and not only that, having an educational facility like that here in our hometown makes Natchez a more desirable place to live. Also I hope we as a group can help get additional funding from the county/city/state.

“Like we proved with my Leadership Natchez class this past year on the recreation issue; a loud united voice is very hard to ignore. We need Co-Lin in this community and as a community we need to make sure we are doing everything we can to ensure Co-Lin has everything they need to continue successfully educating people in our area.”

The Steering Committee for the new chapter is inviting all individuals interested in joining the chapter or learning more to a Business After Hours get-together from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 26, at the upstairs gathering room of Biscuits & Blues on Main Street. Food will be provided by Concordia Bank & Trust and United Mississippi Bank, which also are co-sponsors of the gathering. A cash bar will be available. The program is also being co-sponsored by the Natchez-Adams Chamber of Commerce, the Natchez Area Alumni Chapter of Co-Lin and Biscuits & Blues.

More information may be obtained from Brett Brinegar, director of student affairs, at 601-446-1240 or brett.brinegar@colin.edu.
