If you weren’t on the Hill for Homecoming, then you missed out on a great chance to reunite with classmates, show your Shorter spirit and just have fun. From the annual alumni baseball game to a laugh-out -loud comedy skit, the weekend was packed with “true blue” things to do. A hearty congratulations goes out to David Chester (’73) of Gainesville on winning the Shorter College Alumni Association Treasure Chest Raffle.
Three Shorter College alumni were honored during Shorter College’s Homecoming football game on Saturday, Oct. 17. Those honored included Dr. Derek Neal (’85), Michelle Stricklin (’98) and Warren Kennedy (’71). The recipients were presented with their awards on the 50-yard line during halftime.
Two Shorter College alumnae were honored recently as the Floyd County School System’s Teacher of the Year and Teacher of the Year Runner-Up. Teacher of the Year honors went to Jennifer Wimpy Williams (’01), and Danielle Tapp (’04) received the Teacher of the Year Runner-Up.

Students, faculty and staff of Shorter College’s Professional Studies Program had reason to celebrate during week of Oct. 12, as they marked 17 years of helping working professionals reach their dream of a college degree. Fun and fellowship filled the week, as celebrations were held at each campus – Rome, Riverdale, Lawrenceville and North Atlanta.
A group of Professional Studies students also showed their school spirit by bundling up and braving the cold to take part in a tailgating party before the Shorter Hawks Homecoming game on Oct. 17. The tailgating party was the first of its kind for the Professional Studies program and is one that will hopefully become a new tradition for our adult students.
