JOHNSON CITY (August 26, 2011) – The East Tennessee State University Alumni Association has revealed the winners of its annual ETSU PRIDE Week Decorating Contest.
To launch ETSU PRIDE Week, the association invited members of campus organizations and the community to decorate their doors, windows, offices and even their own employees in blue and gold in honor of this year’s theme: “ETSU PRIDE… Imagine the Next 100 Years.”
Judging took place earlier this week, and prizes were awarded today. Winners were also announced this morning on radio station 95.9 WRZK.
In the Community Division, two businesses tied for first place: Jack’s City Grill, 1805 N. Roan Street, and Jones Chiropractic, 801 E. Watauga Ave. The second place winner was Roddy’s Flowers, 701 South Roan St.
From the Campus Division, first place was awarded to the Office of Admissions in Burgin E. Dossett Hall, followed by the Department of Engineering Technology, Surveying and Digital Media (found in Wilson-Wallis Hall) in second place, and third place winner, the College of Public Health Office of the Dean, located in John P. Lamb, Jr. Hall. ETSU’s Custodial Services received an honorable mention.
“We were very pleased with the record number of entries in this year’s decorating contest,” said Dr. Richard A. Manahan, vice president for University Advancement and president/CEO of the ETSU Foundation. “This participation is indicative of the community’s support of our university. It was the perfect way to kick off ETSU PRIDE Week in our centennial year.”
