The Class of 1967, also known as the “Redcoats” because of the color of their class jackets, celebrated their 50th anniversary at this year’s Reunion, held April 7-8 at UNCG and Greensboro Country Club.
The festivities included trolley tours of campus, Yum Yum ice cream in Shaw Residence Hall and special sessions led by Dr. Brett Carter, Associate Dean of Student Affairs (see related story), and Mr. Charlie Maimone, Vice Chancellor of Business Affairs.
One of the highlights of the weekend was the presentation of the class’s lifetime giving total to Chancellor Gilliam, an incredible $2,380,946. This total includes all donations made by class members since their graduation. As part of their philanthropy, the class recognized the Student Assistance Fund for Emergencies (SAFE) Endowment, which supports students in crisis, by raising approximately $12,000 specifically for that fund.
