Troy University’s Montgomery Metro Alumni Chapter gathered in Wynlakes recently for a reception as a part of the TROY Alumni Association’s Membership in May campaign.

The event was held at the home of Faith Byrd, TROY’s Director of Alumni Affairs, on May 8. Guests were able to socialize and enjoy delicious food prepared and beautifully arranged by Alanna’s Gourmet.

Each year, the TROY Alumni Association and its chapters host various events during the month of May to encourage new memberships and membership renewals, as well as bring awareness to the Association’s top priority – raising funds for scholarships for deserving TROY students. Guests to the May 8 event were able to become a member or renew their membership and donate to the help scholarship efforts.

The Montgomery Metro Chapter’s scholarship committee is currently meeting to award scholarships for the fall 2024 semester, which begins in August.

“The TROY Alumni Association Board of Directors has made funding scholarships a primary focus,” Byrd said. “Our chapters do a tremendous job of raising money to provide scholarships in their local areas as well. Events such as these provide an excellent opportunity to connect with other alumni, share our Trojan pride and give back to the school we love.”

The Montgomery Metro Alumni Chapter also recently elected new officers: Bryan Hubbard, President; Kat Hunter, Secretary; and, Johnny Weatherford, Treasurer. The chapter’s new board members include Carol Coleman, Trey Johns and Dalton Cates, joining existing board members Liz Cole, Anita Griffin and Billy Whigham.

The chapter’s next event will take place on June 7 as members join Montgomery area Trojan fans for the Trojan Tour, which will take place in the Club Car Bar at Riverwalk Stadium prior to TROY Night at the Montgomery Biscuits. Trojan Tour is an annual tour of Troy University Athletics, providing Trojan fans the opportunity to interact with TROY coaches and athletic administrators.

The chapter is also planning a golf tournament on Oct. 24 at Arrowhead Country Club to raise money for scholarships. For more information on the golf tournament or to pay membership dues, please contact Johnny Weatherford at (334) 546-2863 or email johnny.weatherford@jacksonthornton.com.
