Mississippi College Alumni Office Welcomes Lori Bobo
November 1, 2007Mississippi College has bolstered its Alumni Affairs Office with the addition of Lori R. Bobo to its staff in Nelson Hall.
A Clinton resident, Bobo is serving as the new coordinator for alumni affairs. On the job, she will help put together alumni events on and off the Clinton campus. Bobo previously served in the MC Office of Residence Life before taking on her new assignment in late October.
Bobo is assisting Ross Aven III, director of alumni affairs, by promoting programs to increase alumni involvement and mounting a strategic plan to create guidelines for each alumni event. MC's alumni team is going on the road soon to attend a meeting of the Georgia Baptist Convention Nov. 13 in Augusta. Following the session with Georgia pastors, they will meet with MC alumni at a luncheon in nearby South Carolina.
Having Bobo aboard at alumni affairs will be a real plus for Mississippi College, Aven said. "We are excited to have Lori in the alumni office," he said. "She brings a variety of skills with regard to event planning and management. Lori will be a great asset to our team."
Home to 4,600 students this fall, MC reports more than 29,000 alumni in the U.S. and other nations.
A 1993 graduate of the University of West Florida in Pensacola with a bachelor's degree in early childhood and elementary education, Bobo worked for a little more than three years in MC's Office of Residence Life. She is active in the Clinton community.
Among other things, Bobo is an associate member of the Junior Auxiliary of Clinton, and former member of the Clinton Soccer Association and Clinton Futbol Club Board. She has served as fundraising chair of the Clinton High School Arrow Soccer Booster Club, and as an Attache' Food Committee chair. Bobo is a 2007 Leadership Clinton graduate.
The wife of Thomas E. Bobo II, a pharmaceutical representative with Proctor & Gamble, Lori is the mother of three children, Shelbi, Tommy and Graham Bobo.
A California native, Bobo's faith and family are a big part of her life. "I always tell my children that the joy of the Lord is their strength, and they must always remember who they are."
