COOKEVILLE – It’s that time of year again!
Tennessee Tech Pride Days are here and run through Sept. 2, which is the first scheduled football game where the Golden Eagles will take on Samford.
Purple and gold yard signs are available that say “Tennessee Tech Pride” and incorporate the university’s logo.
“Tech Pride Days are about welcoming new and returning students back to campus and the community,” said Bobbie Maynard, Executive Director of Communications and Marketing. “We are using a new design this year, featuring the university’s logo, because it was so popular the last couple of years.”
To help the community celebrate, Tech Pride yard signs are free and available for pick up on campus at the Crawford Alumni Center and at the Campus Information Desk and University Bookstore inside the Roaden University Center. Signs are also available for pick up in the community at the Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce in the Leslie Town Centre.
“We encourage all local businesses to participate in Pride Days by creating purple and gold window or lobby displays, having a Tech Pride message on their marquee or having their employees wear Tech colors,” said Maynard. “Our students are such a vital part of the Cookeville community, and we want to help businesses celebrate that.”
Pride Partners are local businesses that support the university by offering some form of a yearlong Tech discount to students, faculty and staff. There is no charge or fee to become a Pride Partner, and the discounts are listed on the university’s web site. New Pride Partners are accepted throughout the year.
