"Homecoming this year promises to be a very special one," said K.C. Felt, director of Alumni Relations. "Our award recipients are an extraordinary group of individuals whose support and commitment to Idaho State is remarkable, and several are from Pocatello which always adds a special flavor to our activities.  We have a full slate of events planned for alumni and friends and are anxious to welcome all back to campus, especially our 1961 graduates- our Golden Bengals and our 1981 championship football team reunion group."
