100 Years of Garden City Community College


On September 27th and 28th, Garden City Community College will celebrate its 100th year of being open! “It’s amazing having everyone together out on the quad!” Ashley Salazar, the director of public relations, said. “Seeing families who are either alumni of the college, or maybe have kids that come to college, the employees all together really celebrating like you would with a birthday party! Seeing all that happen all at once and people just having a good time all in celebration of the 100 years that the college has in their history is exciting.” Everything will be held and put together by the school.  The events will start Friday night the 27th with a gala. The event will begin at sic o’clock in the evening and will take place at the Beth Tedrow Student Center with only 200 available tickets. The following morning, around ten o’clock, there will be a parade filled with the floats of your fellow students, clubs, and businesses here in Garden City. At one o’clock, there will be a presentation with Dr. Ryan Ruda who will fill the time capsule. The rest of the afternoon will be filled with smaller events taking place in several different locations varying from the student quad and across the campus. These small events include a scavenger hunt, free entertainment, and activity booths (each sponsored by different organizations within GC3). These booths go on just until the tailgate of the homecoming game. Before the game begins at three o’clock, the Garden City Community College Buster Sound Band will lead everyone over to the football stadium for a tailgate. During halftime, the homecoming king a queen will be announced. Make sure to frequently check your email to vote for your homecoming king and queen.
