MOUNT OLIVE- During the University of Mount Olive Alumni Celebration Day, Gail S. Huffaker of Oxford, NC was named an Honorary Alumna of the University.  The award was presented to Huffaker for her participation and leadership in the Alumni Association Annual Winter Glitz Scholarship fundraising event.  The award was presented by Alumnus Bryan DeBose from the class of 2011.

Debose said, “Gail is a strong supporter of the mission and goals of the Alumni Association and the University even though she is not an alumna of the institution.”  He went on to tell how Huffaker has worked tirelessly on the Alumni Winter Glitz event for the past three years, this year serving on the Planning Committee and co-chairing the Stage Decorating Sub-Committee.  “How fortunate we are to have a strong supporter working right alongside the Alumni Association as we raise money for student scholarships,” DeBose concluded.
