Southwest Tennessee Community College Alumni Celebrate College's 10th Anniversary

Southwest Tennessee Community College Alumni will gather October 30 in Memphis at the Doubletree Hotel at 5069 Sanderlin from 7 p.m. to midnight to celebrate the college's 10th anniversary.

The event includes food, dancing and an opportunity to network with graduates from all three colleges. Attendees are asked to bring a picture of themselves from the year 2000.

The event is free to all alumni who have paid their $12 dues. Alumni who have not paid their dues, can do so at the door.
