Golden Grad

It is a great honor to recognize our alumni who have reached the special milestone of celebrating their 50th anniversary since graduating from their Alma Mater, Tennessee Tech. We lovingly refer to these alumni as our Golden Grads. It has been a long-standing tradition for the University President to present a Golden Grad Medallion to each attendee during the 50th Reunion celebrations. The tradition is the official induction to the Golden Grad Society, consisting of all Tennessee Tech alumni who have celebrated their Golden Anniversary. As a memento, the Crawford Alumni Center publishes a Memory Book for the class celebrating its 50th reunion. This is a special keepsake documenting the years alumni were here at Tech and their lives since graduating. We look forward to celebrating your 50th with you. If you have interest in serving on a Reunion Committee, please contact the Crawford Alumni Center at or (931) 372-6150 to share your interest. It’s never too early to begin planning your reunion.
