Northeast Missouri Alumni Chapter

The NEMO Alumni Chapter was named the 2016 Alumni Chapter of the Year. The award recognizes the outstanding achievements of the chapter in support of the Truman Alumni Association and the University.

If you live near the Kirksville area, the Northeast Missouri Alumni Chapter is for you! Joining the Chapter is an opportunity to experience a wide variety of events such as local theater, Truman athletics, and other social gatherings. Members give back to the University by participating in the annual Scholarship Scramble Golf Tournament (June 9, 2017, at KCC), inviting students and parents to the Future Alumni Welcome, and supporting local events.

Every year the Northeast Missouri Alumni Chapter holds their fall banquet and the evening ends with a live auction to support the chapter’s scholarship fund. The banquet also features the presentation of the Northeast Missouri Alumni Chapter Bulldog Forever Award. This award is presented to chapter members who demonstrate their dedication and support for both the Chapter and the University.

Join the Chapter today and become an active member of the Bulldog Community!
