The Golden Pioneers celebration began in May 2006 and will include a variety of activities that include recognition and social celebration, including being honored at the spring commencement ceremonies.

Donning a golden cap and gown, each participant will be presented a commemorative medallion marked with their class year and will be recognized by Dr. Moody for their dedication and loyalty to the College for the past 50 years.

The Golden Pioneer class members participating will join the Commencement processional and be recognized from the podium by Dr. Nancy B. Moody, president of the College.
