Chattanooga State Seeks Those Who Attended Back In The 1960s

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Founded in 1965, Chattanooga State Community College was initially known as Chattanooga State Technical Institute, graduating students in two years, ready to enter the regional workforce.

"With a pride and building on the past success of the inaugural Half Century Alumni Club Reunion, members of the Chattanooga State Community College Alumni Association Board of Directors have begun to make plans for the next big reunion," officials said.  "Members of the first graduating class (1967) were inducted into the Half-Century Club after their 50th anniversary, and the time has come to induct those members of the classes of 1968, 1969 and 1970 to join them."

Chattanooga State plans to hold its 2nd Half Century Alumni Club Reunion in 2020 to include the charter members from the Class of 1967 and induct the newest members from the Classes of 1968, 1969 and 1970. Plans are still being made, and the priority now is to locate missing alumni.

“If you know of a relative or friend that attended Chattanooga State between 1965 and 1970, please help us spread the word by passing this information onto them,” said Richard Huskin, Chattanooga State Alumni Association Board member and member of the Class of 1969. “We are looking for our fellow classmates to come together, and we don’t want to miss anyone. The time has come to join the Chattanooga State Half-Century Alumni Club, celebrate our attendance more than 50 years ago and see the progress the college has made today.”
