PORTER-GAUD ALUMNI NEWSLETTER
PEOPLE OF PORTER
Aaron Nesmith ’18 and Josiah-Jordan James ’19 led Porter-Gaud to three state basketball championships in a row. Nesmith, who was leading the SEC in scoring as a sophomore, and James, the freshman starting point guard for Tennessee, had their first college matchup circled on the calendar for months. Sidelined by injury, Nesmith had to watch as James and the Volunteers beat the Commodores at home. Check out Episode 2!
CYCLONE Career day(s)
Last week we had 16 alumni spanning six different career fields come to campus and speak to our juniors. Connecting our alumni to our current students is one way we can illustrate the value of our diploma extends well beyond getting into college. Next week we will have 16 additional alumni come to campus to share their expertise and advice on careers.
ALumni WeEkend 2020
We have another fantastic weekend lined up for you! During the culminating event of our Alumni Weekend last year, we had a fantastic party on the green with over 200 alumni! The event featured live music, top-shelf liquor, local beer, and 5 local restaurants (The Darling Oyster Bar, Vincent Chicco's, Magnolia, Blossom, and Lewis BBQ.) Under the large tent, each restaurant set up a station with 2 small bites for everyone to try. This year will feature live music, local restaurants, and specialty cocktails as we "Taste the World" together! In addition to the All-Alumni Party, there are excursions for you to participate in.
