Monday, Sept. 26

RSVP now for Alumni Day

Our celebration includes chapel, the Mount Alumni Awards luncheon and tours of campus and Seminary Hill Farm.

We invite all MTSO alumni, students, faculty and staff – as well as former Methesco employees and guests of our Mount Award honorees – to join us for Alumni Day and take advantage of this opportunity to reconnect.

MTSO’s 2022 Alumni Day opens at 10:45 a.m. Sept. 26 with a morning chapel service with Bishop C. Joseph Sprague (’65) preaching. The day continues with a luncheon honoring these recipients of the John and Ruth Mount Alumni Awards for Distinguished Service:

  • Paulette Buford-James (’13), superintendent, Starkville District, Mississippi Conference of the United Methodist Church.
  • Grace Imathiu (’87), senior pastor, First United Methodist Church, Evanston, Illinois.
  • David MacDonald (’02), university chaplain, Ohio Northern University.

As always, our lunch will feature Seminary Hill Farm produce and other locally sourced food.

After lunch, we will offer guided tours of the MTSO campus and Seminary Hill Farm.

"Any sense of deja vu that folks are feeling is understandable," said MTSO President Jay Rundell. "Our 2022 Alumni Day is essentially the celebration we had hoped to host in 2021, before we felt the need to cancel amid renewed COVID concerns. We have high hopes that an improved public-health outlook will allow us to welcome everyone back to campus this fall."
