Dear Corporate Neighbor and Friend:
The Gibbs Junior College (GJC) Alumni Association, Inc. will present the 2019 Annual Reunion and Golf Scramble Classic at Innisbrook Golf & Spa Resort in Innisbrook, Florida. Proceeds will help GJC Alumni's endowment fund and will provide scholarships to deserving students attending the Gibbs Campus of St. Petersburg College, located in St. Petersburg, Florida. The endowment fund creates a source of funding for scholarships on a perpetual basis.
The Florida Legislature established the college in 1957 as one of the first black junior colleges in the state. Gibbs Junior College gave minority students in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Pasco, Sarasota, Manatee, and Hernando counties an opportunity to attend college. Gibbs Junior College became nationally renowned for academic and athletic excellence. In 1966, GJC merged with St. Petersburg Junior College, which later became St. Petersburg College; a four-year institution.
