Message from the Chair

Greetings to all our Ole Miss Faculty and Staff Retirees!

I am honored to have been selected to serve as Chair of the Retiree Board for FY 2017-2018. When I retired in 2015, I was asked to serve on the Retiree Board as a member. I eagerly accepted the invitation and have since enjoyed working with some of the same people in retirement that I enjoyed working with during my time at the University. This has been a rewarding experience in planning, coordinating and organizing events to stay connected and involved with our Ole Miss.

Chancellor Vitter and his wife, Sharon, have been wonderful in their support of our retiree association. We are fortunate to have this positive relationship with the Chancellor and the University administration to further enhance our retirement while remaining connected to the University where we dedicated a significant portion of our lives.

Our retiree board needs your help and input to make this a successful organization. The board is currently planning, coordinating and organizing opportunities and events in the upcoming year for retirees in the hopes that members will be interested in participating. Please be on the lookout for invitations to these activities!

If you have suggestions for events, ideas for improvements or concerns, please contact me directly via We look forward to your input!
