50th anniversary Alumni Awards reception

April 21 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Weatherford College will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its Alumnus of the Year Award from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Friday, April 21 in the Speaker Jim Wright Library on the WC campus.

The reception will precede WC’s annual Alumni Awards Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. in the Doss Student Center.

“As we approach our college’s 150th anniversary, it reminds us of the importance of our alumni in our past, present and future success,” said Brent Baker, Vice President of Institutional Advancement. “There are 50 amazing people on this list of honorees, and many of them will be here on April 21.”

The first recipient of the award, Zoe Switzer McCrary, graduated in 1899. From Speaker of the House Jim Wright, to World War II General William Hood Simpson, to business leaders and philanthropists James and Dorothy Doss, the list of honorees is impressive.

“In my mind, one of the best ways to evaluate a college is its alumni – what they accomplished after they left,” Baker said. “This list of honorees speaks for itself. We are very fortunate to have this accomplished group of individuals as part of the WC family.”

The reception is free and open to the public.
