It was a sea of plaid as Edinboro alumni take over Edinboro for homecoming weekend.
A few thousand former and current students celebrated at Edinboro University. Community members line the streets for the annual parade. Our own Lou Baxter was among the crowd, along with the Golden Apple Teacher of the Year. Organizers say former students look forward to this event every year.
Marilyn Goellner, Assistant VP for Advancement says Edinboro students “are a loyal, passionate group. They love their alumni, they come back to see friends they kept in contact with. We had one set of roommates last year celebrate 50 years.”
Goellner says Edinboro has one of the strongest alumni bases. She tells us it’s important to get them all in the same place for the celebration.
