Northwest Alumni Association adds chapters in Carolinas, Atlanta

The Northwest Alumni Association this spring added its 23rd chapter, representing the Carolinas, and 24th chapter, representing the Atlanta metropolitan area.

Godwin Mordi, a 2011 alumnus is leading the Carolinas Alumni and Friends Chapter. He resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he is a fitness coach.

“It is essential to foster friendships and network with other Bearcats after graduation to build a thriving alumni community for the benefit of the members as well as the University,” Mordi said, noting he enjoys staying connected with other alumni through social media.

TisSian Butler, a 2018 alumna, has taken charge of the Atlanta Alumni and Friends Chapter. She resides in Kennesaw, Georgia, and is a sales consultant with AT&T.

“I love my Bearcat family and want a huge network everywhere,” she said.

Dr. Bob Machovsky, director of alumni relations and giving at Northwest, praised the new chapters’ members for their commitment and pride toward the University.

“The Northwest Alumni Association is thrilled to add two more alumni and friends chapters,” Machovsky said. “The chapters provide a way for alumni and friends who are not able to make it back to Northwest an opportunity to connect with Bearcats in their area and with the University.”  

Additional Northwest Alumni Association chapters are chartered in regions covering Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa as well as in the states and cities of Arizona, California, Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Washington, D.C. The Alumni Association boasts one international chapter in Japan, as well as four specialty groups for Black Alumni and Friends, Band Alumni, a Gridiron chapter for alumni of the Bearcat football program and Theatre Alumni and Friends.
