The Missouri Valley College community will celebrate Homecoming 2022 festivities Oct. 21-23 on the MVC campus. The Homecoming theme is “Where Your Story Began.

 The weekend provides a number of activities open to the community. Some of those activities include the men’s and women’s soccer games, food trucks, annual Torch Run/Ed Leslie 5k run and 1-mile walk which will also feature a kid’s 50 and 100-yard dash, fireworks provided by the MVC Alumni Association, homecoming parade, pre-game tailgate for football, and more! 

“Where Your Story Began,” is a play on the fact that everyone has a story to tell. This year’s theme is focused on those stories of countless Viking alumni,” said Amanda Linneman, director of alumni relations. “So many memorable moments have and still are happening. We encourage our alumni and friends near and far to come back and celebrate all things at Missouri Valley College during Homecoming 2022.”

Three alumni will be recognized at the alumni banquet on Friday, Oct. 21 in the Charles L. Bacon Conference Center. Outstanding Alumni Award recipients are Stephen J. Tuck ‘78 of Marshall, Missouri and Ellen Lee Lance ‘98 of Marshall, Missouri. The Outstanding Young Alumni Award recipient is Cortney Joliff-Mullins ‘14 of Marshall, Missouri. The anniversary classes of 1962, 1972, 1982, 1992, 2002, 2007, 2012 and 2017 will also be recognized. 

 The 2022 MVC Athletic Hall of Fame Inductees include: the 1973 football team & coaching staff, Willard Ray Heath ‘42 (posthumously), James Booker ‘94, Dennis Rohr ‘95, Tim Cobb ‘01, and Matt Cobb ‘02.
