AUBURN ALUMNI ASSOCIATION

The Auburn Alumni Association is forming an organization in Fayette, Lamar, Marion and Winston Counties called
the Westside Auburn Club. The ultimate purpose of this organization is to raise scholarships for students from the
four counties. The goal is to raise funds toward a scholarship each year for a student from each county. The
Westside Auburn Club will have a dinner once a year with a speaker from the Athletic Department and someone
from the field of academia.  The dinner will probably be the main source for funds for the scholarships. Another
function of the organization will be to locate alumni in the area or have moved from the area. Anyone interested in
these endeavors may contact Ray Alexander via email at rayalexander@centurytel.net
