COOKEVILLE – Tennessee Tech invites everyone to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Tech’s Alumni Association. This family-friendly event is free and open to the public and will be held Saturday, June 12, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tech’s main quad.
“We are excited to have this opportunity to welcome alumni, families and friends to campus,” said Brooke Fleenor, events coordinator for Tech’s Crawford Alumni Center. “From bounce houses to a fantastic balloon artist, from yard games to music, we have tried to add activities sure to include something for everyone.”
Free cupcakes and Tech SWAG will be given to the first 100 guests, and food will be available for purchase. There will be competitions, door prizes and giveaways, including a prize for the person displaying the most Tech pride. All guests are encouraged to wear purple and gold.
The Alumni Association was first organized on June 6, 1921, with T. W. Kittrell serving as the association’s first president. Anyone who has successfully completed a class at Tech is automatically a member. Today, Tech’s Alumni Association is comprised of more than 80,000 members living all around the world.
“The Alumni Association has strengthened the university in countless ways,” said Brandon Boyd, director of the Crawford Alumni Center. “But it couldn’t have made those contributions without its members, so I am thankful to my fellow alumni. Their support and promotion of Tech has been a key factor in the university’s success.”
Parking on campus on weekends does not require a parking permit, so guests are welcome to park in any open lot. For more information about the 100th anniversary event, email the Tennessee Tech Crawford Alumni Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
