Alumni Fellows Program
2013 CVM Alumnus of the Year: Dr. Huang-Ge Zhang, Class of 1994
Sponsored by the Mississippi State University Alumni Association, the Alumni Fellows Program recognizes alumni who have distinguished themselves in their respective careers. They are selected by each college or school and are invited to return to campus to meet with students, both in the classroom and informally.
For 19 years, this educational activity has served as a means for enriching students' university experiences by exposing them to outstanding alumni who are willing to talk about specific competencies, attitudes and efforts needed to succeed. It is an exciting and stimulating way to blend the interests of the accomplished professional, the student and the professor.
Alumni Fellows are chosen to return to campus as distinguished guests and as mentors, friends and counselors. They are honored in recognition of the ultimate measure of a university - the quality of its alumni.
