Join us for Homecoming 2022

Traditions and family run deep at TMI.  As part of our TMI family, alumni are very important to us.  We hope you will participate in the tradition of celebrating alumni and reunion groups during this special time of year.  This will be an exciting time to reminisce on past memories, reconnect with old friends, and make new ones too! 

Below is a schedule of the fun and festivities that will take place during Homecoming as well as the first Pass in Review of the school year. Come mingle with fellow TMI alumni at the Homecoming and Reunion Celebration to enjoy free food (while supplies last) and fun prior to the game. This event is complimentary, however, advanced registration is requested by October 7. Go Panthers!

TMI Hosting Energy for Life Walkathon

On Saturday, Oct 1st, TMI is hosting the Energy for Life Walkathon on campus at Howell Field. The walk is being coordinated by Donna Basse, mother of Dillon Basse ’16.

Dillion’s time at TMI was filled with Corps of Cadets activities and competing on the lacrosse field. A short couple of years after graduation, Dillion was diagnosed with Leber Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON), which has caused him to lose much of his eyesight. Although Dillion continues to battle LHON, he is a proud college graduate and working for the family business.

If you are interested in participating in the walk to show your support to the Basse family, click here to register.
