Alumni Association

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone involved in making Homecoming 2017 a roaring success! We could not do it without the support of all participants, volunteers, sponsors and contributors, and the Fort Hays State and Hays-wide communities. Enjoy viewing photos from throughout the weekend. (Please note, all photo albums are housed on the FHSU Alumni Association's Facebook page.)

Thank you again and see you next year -- mark your calendar now for Homecoming 2018 on September 24-30!

Specialty Reunions

Special reunion activities are hosted each year to honor classes, academic areas and organizations. The Alumni Association is dedicated to developing, fostering and advancing the relationships of the Tiger community. Historically, the Association has provided planning support and facilitation for FHSU reunions during the Homecoming weekend. In an effort to further that support, the Association has created an online request form for those groups interested in scheduling a reunion. Reunions may be scheduled all-year long, providing alternative opportunities for gathering at times other than Homecoming. Interested groups should complete the request form for consideration of implementation by the Association.

FHSU Tiger Alumni Honorary Family of the Year

The FHSU Alumni Association is pleased to recognize the Milt and Marti Dougherty family as recipients of the 2017 Tiger Alumni Honorary Family of The Year award, recognizing a multi-generational family based on dedication, loyalty and support to the Fort Hays State University.

The Dougherty family includes five generations of Tigers and has a long history of Tiger pride, involvement and commitment to the university with over 20 Tiger graduates and former students and three current students. They will be honored during the Homecoming weekend, receiving a commemorative plaque, serving as parade marshals, and enjoying complimentary tickets to the football game with on-field recognition during halftime, in addition to several other benefits as recipients of the award.

Nominations will be accepted each year for this annual honor. For more information, visit the Tiger Alumni Honorary Family of the Year Award.
