The College President Ronnie Booth will bury a 2x2x2 “time capsule” during a ceremony atNoon Wednesday (Oct 24) outside the student center. The time capsule will contain symbolic items, ranging from graduation program and college publications to presidential election bumper stickers. Coordinator of Student life and counseling services, Croslena Johnson, says the time capsule will give the TCTC Students of 2062 a special insight into what the college was like in 2012. Student Government Association President Donald Joslyn included the gavel he used in theSGA meetings. Josyln says he wants the future students to understand the importance of getting involved atTriCountyTechnicalCollege.
