“We’ve lined up some great activities for our alumni and friends and their families,” said Rachel Helms, MTSU Alumni Relations assistant director. “If you purchase one of our discounted tickets to the Atlanta Braves game on July 22, you are helping to directly support our Alumni Legacy Scholarship. And we’re really excited about the Pickleball clinics at the MTSU Recreation Center.”
