Lifetime Membership: Commitment to TROY Alumni Association was natural step for Howell

Lifetime Membership Lifetime Membership

For 1972 Troy University graduate Bill Howell, becoming a lifetime member of the University’s Alumni Association was just a logical step to take.

The Dale County native, who since 1982 has served as principal legal advisor for the Alabama District of the Small Business Administration, didn’t realize at the time that he was the first alumnus to become a lifetime member when the Alumni Association initiated the program in 1992.

Howell takes great pride in the University’s growth and success.

“My father still lives in Ozark and we pass through Troy every now and then,” Howell said. “It is amazing how much things have changed since I was a student. I enjoy keeping up with TROY athletics and how the University as a whole is doing. I think it is important to maintain that connection and would certainly recommend a lifetime membership to any alumnus of the University.”

Howell finished with a double major in management and business administration. He went on to earn a Juris Doctor degree in 1977 from Jones School of Law.

Howell previously served as attorney advisor and district office attorney for the Small Business Administration’s Alabama District, as well as serving with the Legal Aid Society of Birmingham.

Currently, more than 200 TROY alumni have become lifetime members, according to Faith Ward, director of alumni affairs.

“The Lifetime Alumni program is a means through which our alumni can demonstrate their continued support and pride in Troy University,” Ward said. “We want to encourage other alumni to consider becoming a lifetime alumnus and demonstrating this type of commitment to their alma mater.”

Lifetime memberships in the TROY Alumni Association are $500 for an individual or $750 for a couple. For further information or to become a lifetime member, contact the Troy University Office of Alumni Affairs at 334-670-3318.
