Holds 50 Year Reunion

Members of the Class of 1949 reunited after 50 years on May 7, 1999, to renew friendships, remember the good times at our college and let each other know what they've been up to.

Class members and their guest began the reunion at the Layton House-Ruby I. Stinson Alumni Center. They toured the campus to see the changes that have occurred since they attended Gila Junior College. At a luncheon in their honor EAC Alumni Association President Bill Reed and EAC, President Gherald L. Hoopes Jr. greeted the class and thanked them for their support of the college. President Hoopes read part of an article written by the 1949 Student Body President Jack Love. It mentioned the same things we mention today about our college. Eastern is a great place to get a solid education with instructors who care in a school that is not too large for individuals to shine.

That evening, class members attended the annual Alumni Banquet at the EAC Activities Center. The Class of 1949 was honored for their loyalty and interest in Eastern Arizona College and the Class of 1999 was welcomed into the Alumni Association. The reunion participants were then recognized as they attended the EAC Commencement Exercises held in the Guitteau Gymnasium to complete the day's events.

Thanks for your part in the history of our College, Class of 1949!
