Golden Grads - Call of 1970 visits Highlandpublished May 4, 2021
On Saturday, April 24, 2021 Highland held the annual homecoming celebration honoring current students as well as the Golden Grad 50-year class of 1970.
“The celebration of our Golden Grads is a highlight each year for the HCC Alumni Association. We treasure the stories and memories shared about their time at HCC. The class of 1970 was a large group of classmates that had stayed in touch with one another which made the day very special.” Kelly Twombly, Director of Alumni Relations at HCC, noted after interacting with classmates. The day consisted of a meet and greet reception followed by a campus tour led by retired Vice President, Dr. Craig Mosher. Then, the Golden Grads retreated to Kirkwood and Co. for a luncheon and update of the College by President, Deborah Fox.
Following the lunch, the Golden Grads enjoyed the President’s reception at Porter Family Stadium where the Scotties took on Independence Community College. The class of 1971 will be honored as Highland’s next Golden Grads on October 23rd, 2021.
