The program is a relatively new one being offered by the Ole Miss Alumni Association. The Ole Miss Spirit staff was certainly eager to be on board with the program to the benefit of all concerned.
"Joining forces with the Ole Miss Alumni Association is a positive for us," said Spirit founder and publisher Chuck Rounsaville. "We've always worked well with the Ole Miss Alumni Association and believe it will be beneficial for us and for them to work together as corporate partners."
Both the Ole Miss Spirit and the Ole Miss Alumni Association are organizations familiar to Ole Miss people everywhere. The Alumni Association began in 1852, while The Spirit was first printed in 1982.
"Our corporate members are an important part of the Ole Miss Alumni Association membership program, and we are happy to formalize our relationship with the Ole Miss Spirit," said Ole Miss Alumni Association Executive Director Tim Walsh. "We have worked together for years, as Chuck and Jeff have helped publicize various alumni events around the country. In turn, we have helped promote subscriptions for the Spirit. We look forward to continuing this relationship for years to come."
The Corporate Sponsorship Program helps a business or organization build and improve its relationship with more than 130,000 alumni and friends of Ole Miss. The program is also designed to assist a business in gaining more exposure among alumni and friends. In the case of the Ole Miss Spirit, it should make more people aware of the Ole Miss sports coverage they receive by subscribing.
"Since Chuck started the Ole Miss Spirit 27 years ago, our relationship with the Alumni Association has always been strong," said Editor Jeff Roberson, who has been with The Spirit for 12 years. "Obviously this corporate partnership creates a new level of opportunity for us and will help us reach even more people who follow the Rebels. We appreciate the Alumni Association, and we look forward to working with them into the future."
Currently on staff at the Ole Miss Spirit, in addition to Rounsaville and Roberson, are Bruce Newman, Yancy Porter, and Ben Garrett.
The Ole Miss Alumni Association plays a vitally important role in keeping alumni and friends of the University of Mississippi connected. Through scholarship programs, travel opportunities, special events, the Alumni Review magazine and online communications, the alumni association provides a fundamental link that helps to strengthen the bonds of the Ole Miss family.
