Alcorn athletics forms partnership with C Spire

Alcorn State University is strengthening its brand by forming partnerships with successful companies.

Alcorn’s athletic department has formed a partnership with Mississippi wireless company C Spire. So far, C Spire has become a member of Alcorn athletics’ 1871 Club. They also made a donation to Alcorn’s 2014 invitational golf tournament.

C Spire, which is headquartered in Ridgeland, Miss., is the sixth largest wireless provider in the United States and the largest privately held wireless provider in the United States. C Spire has approximately 1,200,000 customers in Mississippi, the Memphis Metropolitan area, the Florida Panhandle and parts of Alabama including Mobile.

Director of Intercollegiate Athletics for Alcorn Derek Horne is happy that Alcorn and C Spire can come together in an effort to help each other become better.

“I think that it’s going to be great for Alcorn to have C Spire as a partner,” said Horne. “This partnership will allow us to help them attract more customers. It’s great for Alcorn because the partnership will assist the athletic program with funding. This will potentially attract other regional and nationwide companies.”

Horne is looking forward to a great and long lasting relationship with the wireless company.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg. We are hoping that this partnership will have longevity and promotes growth for both parties.”
