The campus was buzzing with great conversation, the excitement of seeing old friends and colleagues, enjoying good food and wonderful entertainment.

Various displays were available for all to enjoy from the Cosmetology Program, the East Kentucky Science Center, Respiratory Care Program and Workforce Solutions. Everyone enjoyed browsing through the memorabilia that included year books, photos and a scrap book from the Mayo Technical College that included newspaper clippings, pictures and other significant historical information.

Nellie Baldwin and daughter, Jeremy Dempsey and Michelle Fields provided the audience with a wonderful selection of music. Comments were made by Mr. Jim Caldwell, WYMT Chief Meteorologist and also from Mr. Keith Caudill, Director of the Mountain Arts Center and a 2010 BSCTC Outstanding Alumnus. Keith commented, “my educational experience at PCC was wonderful, it has truly changed my life forever.” Jim talked briefly about the devastation from the recent tornados and expressed his delight in the fact that the college has worked closely to ensure that the students directly impacted by this devastation have the opportunity to continue their education.

Approximately 150 people were in attendance and seemed to enjoy the evening. For more information about the Big Sandy Alumni Association, contact Leslie M. Bays at (606) 886-7391.
