Mississippi State University sophomore Tyrus Hill of Caledonia has been named one of 22 students joining the university Alumni Association student liaison group. Alumni delegates serve as liaisons between the 135-year-old land-grant institution and its more than 125,000 living graduates. This group of students is invaluable in assisting with alumni-sponsored programs and activities, including football tailgate gatherings, class reunions and numerous other events, both on and off campus.
Members are selected through a highly competitive interview process. This year's group was chosen from among more than 300 applicants and joins 23 returning delegates.
Hill, an accounting major, is the son of Brenda Hill. He is a graduate of Caledonia High School.
