Glad Tidings from your Ole Miss family at the UM Foundation
UM Foundation staff members gather around the gingerbread Memory House.

Happy Holidays from your Ole Miss family at the University of Mississippi Foundation.

The gingerbread Memory House

For the first time ever, your UM Foundation staff participated in the annual Ford Center Holiday Village for which members of the City of Oxford, Lafayette County and university communities construct gingerbread houses to be displayed at the Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts from Dec. 1-15.

If you happen to be in the area during this holiday season, we invite you to stop by the Ford Center and check out our gingerbread submission, “Memory House,” representing the UM Foundation headquarters at 406 University Ave. in Oxford.

You’ll equally enjoy the many other creative submissions on display!

Hannah and Abigail add finishing touches.

While everyone on staff contributed to the construction of the house, special thanks go to Hannah Carroll and Abigail Robbins for heading up this memorable project.

During this season of giving, the staff members of the UM Foundation wish you and your family blessings, health and all the joys of the season!

We are thankful for our generous alumni and friends who have supported Ole Miss programs, faculty and students throughout 2023 and we hope you are looking forward to a joyful and prosperous new year!
