Gold Tiger Club reunion set for Aug. 5


Saturday, August 5, Gadsden High School graduates of 50 years or more will gather at The Venue at Coosa Landing for the 26th Annual Gold Tiger Club reunion. To date, more than 450 reservations have been received.
This year the Class of 1972 is the host class, honoring the Class of 1973 as it celebrate its 50th reunion. Gold Tigers from Classes 1944 through 1973 will be attending.
Membership in the Gold Tiger Club includes everyone who graduated from Gadsden High 50 years or more or is a spouse of a “50 year plus” graduate. Since 1997, the annual event has brought Gadsden High School graduates together.
Doors open at 10:30 a.m., recognitions and announcements begin at 11 a.m., followed by lunch and fellowship. Reservations will be accepted as space allows, as will walk-ins on the day of the event.
In 2016, the Class of 1966 established a scholarship fund for JROTC students of Gadsden City High School. Each year three JROTC students are awarded scholarships from the Jerry Heard Scholarship Fund. The fund was established in memory of retired Army Colonel Jerry Heard who was serving as Gold Tiger President when he lost his life in a tragic accident. Heard was an avid supporter of the JROTC program in Gadsden City Schools. Retired Colonel Carl Harrison works with JROTC students at Gadsden City High and leads the selection committee for the recipients of the scholarships.
