50th Reunion – Class of 1969 update


April 5, 2019

Dear Golden Graduate:

50 years! How exciting… We look forward to having you back on campus to celebrate this incredible milestone. Before we go into detail, let me personally apologize for the lack of communication. Mrs. Carolyn Collier has done such a great job for years organizing and executing the weekend’s activities. This year, because of some health issues, she was not able to take the lead; however, we ask that we all keep her in our prayers.

The reunion is still happening… Attached you will find the itinerary for the weekend activities as well as the information for reserving your hotel.

Lastly, we ask that you reach out to any of your classmates that have not had the opportunity to register so far. We have included a list of those who have registered to date. If you have already registered and have not sent a photo, please do so as soon as possible.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Advancement Office at (318) 274-2217 or via email at

Again, we look forward to having you hack home! Respectully,

Marc A. Newman
