Graduating Seniors Send-off Celebration

The JSU Alumni Office & the STAT Club are hosting a Graduating Seniors Send-off Celebration at the Alumni House Pavilion on Friday, December 15 immediately following each graduation rehearsal. (Rehearsals times are 10 a.m. & 2 p.m.; therefore the Senior Send-off events will be at approximately 10:45 a.m. & 2:45 p.m.)

This year STAT was very fortunate to have local businesses show their community support of JSU by taking an active role in this event through their donation of refreshments and door prizes. Our premier sponsors are Papa John's of Jacksonville who donated pizza for the event, and Bonnie Ray's Bake Shoppe who donated a cake for the celebration. Local businesses sponsoring our door prizes are Joy Christian Supply who donated two Bibles and a Christian book, Strut's who donated a ten-dollar gift certificate, and the Cock Pit gas station who donated twenty dollars worth of gasoline. Get Personalized donated a fifteen-dollar gift card, McDonald's of Jacksonville donated 100 gift cards with various free items on them, Jacksonville Bookstore on the square donated a free bag for the event, and Holiday Inn Express of Oxford donated a free night's hotel voucher.

“The local businesses who help sponsor the Graduation Celebration are awesome,” said Alan Renfroe, Assistant Director of Alumni Affairs and STAT Club Advisor. “They show their genuine interest in higher education and send a positive message to JSU graduates about their commitment to community service.”

“I would like to take this time to thank the businesses who participated as a premier sponsor and the sponsors of our door prizes for this year’s event, said Leslie Gober, Social Director of STAT Club. "Your generous donations were recognized and greatly appreciated by our graduates. I love working with STAT at JSU and I had a lot of fun putting this event together for the graduating seniors. Congratulations to you all, and I wish you the best in your future endeavors!”
