Columbus Technical College 50th Anniversary

Columbus Technical College is celebrating 50 Years of Excellence by Painting the town Blue through community outreach and service! The city of Columbus has officially proclaimed October, 2011 as “Columbus Technical College 50th Anniversary Month.” During the city council meeting on Tuesday, October 4, councilor Judy Thomas read the proclamation she sponsored honoring our college.


Columbus Technical College collected 749 pounds of food for “Feeding the Valley.” That’s enough to feed 50 families of four for four days! Pictured left to right are: Larry Hicks/recruiter, Sarah Beecham/registrar, Nichole Marshall and Sylvia Dansby/registrar’s assistants.

The food line is a busy place at the movie night on the lawn Oct. 28.

Dean of Business Abby Carter helped with the popcorn.

“Ms. Earnestine” and “Ms. Sharon” work the serving line.

The lawn at the Wright Center filled up fast with fans of the “Pirates” movie.

These folks made movie night a true family affair!
