Festivities will begin promptly at 4:30 p.m. with a no-host-bar reception, followed by a catered barbecue dinner and awards presentation.
After dinner, the college will present its 2010 Outstanding Alumni & Friends awards before guests make their way into Cougar Stadium for the 7 p.m. football game between the hometown Cougars and the visiting Ventura College Pirates.
The College of the Canyons 2010 Outstanding Alumni is Marjanne Priest, co-founder and corporate secretary of the Betty Ferguson Foundation (BFF). Through a partnership with the COC Foundation, in 2005 BFF established the Education Advancement Forum at College of the Canyons with a proposed $100,000 endowment. To date, more than $36,000 has been raised toward that goal.
The College of the Canyons 2010 Outstanding Friend co-recipients are Jeri and Carl Goldman, owner/operators of local AM radio station KHTS 1220, The Hometown Station. Over the years the college has benefitted from Carl and Jeri’s support in many ways, including the coverage of news and events associated with the college, support of the campus’ many fine and performing arts programs, athletic event coverage and ongoing advocacy for the college both locally and in Sacramento.
“Attending the annual College of the Canyons Homecoming barbecue is a great way for community members to pay tribute to our Alumni and Friends honorees and take in some exciting Cougar football,” said Chuck Lyon, COC athletic director. “We invite the community and all of the college’s many friends, alumni and supporters to come celebrate with us.”
