Message from the Chair

Greetings to all our Ole Miss Faculty and Staff Retirees!

What an honor it is for me to have been selected to serve as Chair of the Retiree Board for FY 2015-2016.  When I was asked to serve on this Board at retirement back in 2009, I happily accepted and have enjoyed working with others who have donated their time and talents to keeping our retirees connected.  It has truly been a rewarding experience for me, and I am hoping this will be one of our best years yet. 

We have some great programs planned for this fall and spring and will be contacting all of you with hopes that you will be able to attend most if not all of them.  If you have suggestions or concerns, we would be delighted to hear from you. 

Ole Miss is once again in a transitional period, and we want to do everything possible to support our current administration as we assist in finding the next Chancellor and First Lady to lead our University.  In the meantime, Interim Chancellor Morris Stocks and his wife, Cindy, have our support.  We are blessed to have them serve in this role.  We hope that you will be able to attend some of the sessions the IHL Board will have on campus as the Chancellor Search Committee completes this process.  Many of us have been here through the last four Chancellors and some even further back.  We have valuable knowledge and experience to share in my opinion. 

Our Retiree Board needs your help in making our group successful as we venture further into the world of retirement, and also keep up and stay involved with our Ole Miss.  Please let me know if there is anything I personally can do to help make this happen for you.  It takes a village, and our Retiree Board is here for you.  Please be on the lookout for invitations to events coming soon!

Thanks so much,

Brenda Brannan
