MAA Launches Legacy Program

The Mizzou Alumni Association hosted the first True Sons and Daughters Legacy Reception on Sunday, Sept. 18, 2011. Legacy families with multiple generations of Mizzou alumni gathered for a brunch reception to celebrate their Mizzou tradition.

Dr. Rich Oliver, dean of the School of Health Professions and a Mizzou alumnus with a legacy family of his own, shared his Mizzou experience.  

Brian Rorie (BS Acc ’84) and Alex Rorie (Class of ’15) spoke about their six-generation Mizzou family and led other legacy attendees in a pinning ceremony in which students and alumni parents presented one another with special Mizzou Legacy lapel pins.

The reception was a special way to celebrate great Mizzou legacy families!
