As Georgia Highlands College celebrates its 50th anniversary, the college’s library has made it possible for anyone to view historic college memorabilia from a computer or smart device through the creation of a digital archive.
The digital archive is available at 50years.highlands.edu
“We have items that highlight student organizations, marketing campaigns and events throughout the college’s history, such as a visor from our 30th anniversary and a bookmark commemorating the addition of the academic building on the Cartersville site,” Librarian Melanie Vincent said.
Memorabilia also includes apparel, school spirit décor, as well as collectibles like drinkware.
“These items really showcase what type of memorabilia was expected to come from a college back then to now,” Archives Assistant Danielle Griesemer said. “Many of our items actually come from former students either through donation or on loan.”
The Coast Guard Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to strengthening the Coast Guard community and service by supporting members and families, announces that it awarded 167 scholarships in 2020, totaling $503,000 in support.
Among those awarded Coast Guard Foundation Scholarships was Kerrington Wagner, daughter of U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Kerry Wagner, from Summerville, who is attending Berry College.
The Coast Guard Foundation Scholarships benefit the children of enlisted men and women who are serving or have served in the U.S. Coast Guard, whether active duty, reserve, retired or deceased.
