40th Reunion

Class of 1979

In honor of our milestone reunion, the 40th Reunion Committee will set an overall fundraising goal. We ask each class member to step up and play a part in achieving this goal in honor of this very special occasion.

Dear Friends:

This year marks another milestone for our class – 40 years since our graduation from Georgia Tech!  It is an exciting time for our Georgia Tech classmates as we celebrate the fortieth anniversary of our graduation from Georgia Tech. 

As chair of the Class of 1979 40th Reunion Committee, I invite you to come back to Georgia Tech for Homecoming & Reunion Weekend 2019, November 1-2. Homecoming & Reunion Weekend is a longstanding tradition at Georgia Tech. In addition to coming home to Georgia Tech to visit with classmates and friends, that tradition includes making a 40th Reunion gift to our alma mater. Our Reunion Committee will set an overall fundraising goal and I invite you to join our class in making a gift of any level to Georgia Tech in honor of this milestone reunion.

I am looking forward to our 40th Class Reunion this fall and hope you will make plans to be in Atlanta.  Please make plans to attend our class reunion party on Friday evening, November 1st, of Homecoming & Reunion Weekend.  Online registration will be available as early as June!  I look forward to seeing you in November.
