Each year the Fairmont State Alumni Association receives countless nominations for their Homecoming awards. This year we are proud to present awards to six remarkable alumni. To submit a nomination, e-mail Emily Swain, Director of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving, at email@example.com.
With the passing of Dr. Naomi “Nicki” Boyers Hovatter, Fairmont State University has lost one of its most outstanding and oldest alumni. Hovatter, who died Friday, March 4, at age 103 was honored by the Fairmont State Alumni Association as Outstanding Alumna in 2008. At the Alumni Awards Luncheon that year, she shared some of her memories with those gathered and stated that she attributed her longevity to not resenting growing old and realizing that many are denied the privilege.
