Talladegans Mix and Mingle at 2018 Christmas Parties

Talladegans in the Birmingham and Tuscaloosa chapters came together over the 2018 Christmas season to meet, greet, and have a great time reminiscing about their years at Talladega College. It was a wonderful opportunity for young and “seasoned” Degans to meet, mingle, and mix. The Birmingham affair brought over 40 Degans together at the Club 1st and 23rd in downtown Birmingham. The affair had live entertainment and was capped off with Degans singing the school song.

The Tuscaloosa chapter had its gala event the following evening in Hoover, Alabama at the beautiful home of Mark and Nedonna Cooper,’97. One of the highlights of the evening was a Talladega College trivia game which challenged everyone’s knowledge about the history of Talladega College. It was interesting watching the competitive minds of Degans and guests compete for the top prizes. Lastly, Mark and Nedonna presented everyone with a Talladega College ornament to hang on their Christmas tree.
