Join current and former students, staff, administrators and faculty for food and festivities — an open mike for alums and current students, storytelling by Tony, and basketball with Charles at 3 p.m. In the event of rain, the event will move to the library’s Carnegie Room.

“The Early College at Guilford has been successful in many ways beyond our original vision,” said Kathy, the Charles A. Dana Professor of Psychology. “The school fits with our mission of lifelong learning and brings additional diversity to the campus. Guilford’s classrooms are enriched by the young students who in turn benefit from the challenging education Guilford faculty offer.
“ECG is an example of a win-win collaboration between the College and Guilford County Schools and the school has received recognition for the excellent job it does educating students in both high school and college classes. It has been so rewarding to watch the school as it has transformed from a creative idea to a successful reality.”
