Class of 1967 Reunites at Homecoming

Alumni from the Class of 1967 were all hugs and smiles as they reunited for a reception and dinner at Mosaic Village during Homecoming.  It had been some 46 years since many of the alumni had seen one another. Grover Jackson of Stone Mountain, Ga., organized the event and encouraged his classmates to stay at Mosaic Village for the weekend.

During the pre-dinner reception with JCSU President Ronald L. Carter, several alumni shared their thoughts about JCSU then and now. 

Sandye Anthony-Tobias, who worked in New York City for 45 years after graduating, and classmate Lenora Powe recalled doing “devilish things,” to be entertained while living in Duke Hall. The two classmates recalled having strict curfews of 6 p.m. on weekdays and 10 p.m. on weekends.

“We’re very proud of the University and the way it has really grown,” said Vivian Terry of Pontiac, Mich. Another classmate, Curt Peters, remembered Brayboy Gymnasium being the best in the CIAA. The sound of the 60s filled the room as the group talked about the Motown era taking hold during their college days. Peters recalled seeing the original O’Jays perform live during his Homecoming dance. 

The class made promises to stay in touch and hope to get together in the future.
