SGTC Alumni and Sophomore Day celebration a big hit
South Georgia Technical College gave away over 500 t-shirts to SGTC alumni, retirees, current faculty, friends and supporters at its annual Alumni and Sophomore Day Celebration recently in the James S. Peters gymnasium in conjunction with the Jets and Lady Jets basketball games.
All South Georgia Technical College alumni and former faculty and staff members were encouraged to come out and join in the celebration. Alumni from at least five of the last seven decades were present at the celebration which also recognized the 2019 – 2020 Jets and Lady Jets sophomores between the two basketball games.
The Alumni Day Celebration kicked-off around 10:00 a.m. with an Alumni Basketball game featuring former Jets and Lady Jets basketball standouts. Following that activity, there was a free Hot Dog and Hamburger cookout and Tailgate event sponsored by the Americus-Sumter County Chamber of Commerce.
The tailgating event led into the nationally ranked and top Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Lady Jets basketball team facing off against Andrew College at 1 p.m. The Jets took to the court at 3 p.m. against the Andrew College Tigers following the Sophomore Day recognition of the 2019 – 2020 Jets and Lady Jets sophomores.
Special alumni/sophomore t-shirts were available at no cost while supplies lasted during the SGTC Alumni Day Celebration. Admission to the games and the tailgating events were free. A large crowd was in attendance.
