Reaching out to alumni in a war zone

Published: Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 02:58 PM.

The Panama City site is a prime example of the opportunities.

Though the site has a few classrooms, it is primarily an office for registration and outreach for students wishing to pursue dozens of degree options offered by Troy.

The university offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees.

And for the coming weeks the school is reaching out to Thompson and Watford.

Pam Watford said that the school has already sent care packages of Troy memorabilia – a coozie or t-shirt – in the past, but this drive is more concentrated and aimed at making a difference as the holidays approach.

There are boxes for donations in Pam’s classroom as well as other classrooms and locations around Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School.

Chase has his Troy University fraternity, FarmHouse, involved in the effort.
