Classmates of 1965 Reunion to be July 31

Northeast Alabama Community College will be turning 50 in 2015. The college is hosting a Class Reunion for students who were the first to step on campus. Classmates of 1965 will be coming together Sunday, July 31 to kick-off yearly events that will be taking place at the College. “Each year we will hold small events building up to a Homecoming Celebration in 2015,” stated Heather Rice, Development Director. “All the classmates that are attending the class reunion are very excited to be coming back to the campus.”

Classmates will have time to visit with one another from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and then a luncheon and short program will begin at 12:30 p.m. in the Tom Bevill Lyceum on campus. The Class of 1965 reunion was re-scheduled after the April 2011 tornadoes devastated Jackson and DeKalb Counties.

Dr. David Campbell, President, says it is important to remember how the College began. “The physical, technological nature of Northeast of course has changed dramatically since the College opened some fifty years ago. However, one thing that has not changed is the quality and character of our students. In this regard our first class, the group we are honoring, set an example and tone for Northeast that still exists today. We are extremely pleased to be recognizing them.”
