North Ga. Tech Schedules Homecoming

North Georgia Technical College will host its annual Homecoming Celebration later this month.

The school announced recently that its 70th Homecoming Celebration will take place on Saturday, October 19.

School officials said that although the campus has been used for educational purposes for over 100 years, this is the 70th time that alumni have gathered for an organized event.

All activities are open to the public and all proceeds go to the NGTC Foundation Scholarship Fund.

The festivities will begin with an old fashioned breakfast buffet and will be followed by the annual alumni meeting and awards ceremony.

Winners of the 2013 Hall of Fame and Career Achievement Awards will be announced and the election of Alumni Association Officers will be held.

The Homecoming Car Show will then go from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Awards will be given in a number of categories.

In addition, there will be an Arts and Crafts Show for handmade or homemade items from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Music and food may be enjoyed throughout the day at the TransportationCenter located at the corner of Highway 197 North and Tech School Road.
