Gaston College celebrated its 50th Anniversary throughout the 2014-2015 academic year! On May 16, 2015, a 50th Anniversary Black Tie Gala was held to recognize and honor former, and current, Gaston College presidents, trustees, foundation board members, faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Over 100 guests were in attendance to celebrate this milestone.
Dr. Pat Skinner, President of Gaston College, shared the history of the college from its founding days to the festive celebration of its Golden Anniversary. Along with Gala attendees, Dr. Skinner was delighted to recognize Gastonia native, and Florida State Men’s Basketball coach, Leonard Hamilton, as the 50th Anniversary Alumnus of Distinction for Gaston College. It was a memorable evening!
The Gala raised over $30,000 for Gaston College to be used in support of the college’s greatest needs for the benefit of students and faculty. We are truly honored and delighted that Dr. Pat Skinner chose Poffie Girls to find her the stunning Montage gown she worn for the event!
Behalf of all the staff at Poffie Girls, congratulations, Dr. Skinner, on such a tremendous event!
