West Point, Georgia, was bustling with activity October 21-22 as Point University celebrated its 80th anniversary during homecoming weekend. Hundreds of alumni came into town to enjoy luncheons, alumni athletic games, fine arts concerts and prayer walks around the community. Community members, students, faculty/staff and prospective students joined in on Saturday, beginning with a pep rally in downtown West Point featuring the Point Marching Skyhawks and cheerleaders and leading to an exciting football game in Ram Stadium (Valley, Alabama).
Point ended its homecoming weekend with a festival at the West Point River Park featuring live music, free kayak rides, food trucks, face painting and more as Point not only celebrated 80 years of impact, but also its fifth year in the West Point community. The entire Point family came together for an evening in the heart of downtown remembering God’s faithfulness to Point and to the greater Valley community.
Point’s homecoming celebration could not have happened without the support of the local community. Thanks to Jackson Heating & Air for providing the tents for the tailgate and to GLL Marine, the City of West Point, and local food vendors for sponsoring the festival.
