Eight alumni are set to receive the Alumni Association’s highest annual honors Nov. 12 as part of Homecoming 2011 at the University of Mississippi.
This year’s inductees into the Alumni Hall of Fame are James H. Creekmore and Wade H. Creekmore Jr., both of Jackson; Winfield Dunn of Nashville, Tenn.; Jim Weatherly of Brentwood, Tenn.; and Scott Wegmann of Houston, Texas.
Created in 1974, the Hall of Fame honors those select alumni who have made an outstanding contribution to their country, state or the university through good deeds, services or contributions that have perpetuated the good name of Ole Miss.
Mike Ely of Oxford will receive the Alumni Service Award for service to the university and the Alumni Association over an extended period. Patrick Krutz of Novato, Calif., will receive the Outstanding Young Alumni Award.
