COVINGTON — Georgia Perimeter College Newton Campus invites the community out for an evening of baseball, food and giveaways on Tuesday, March 18.
The GPC Jaguars will be playing against the West Georgia Tech Golden Knights at GPC’s first Family Baseball Night. The game’s first pitch is scheduled to be a “triple-threat” by Newton County Commission Chairman Keith Ellis, Covington Mayor Ronnie Johnson and GPC interim president Rob Watts.
GPC Marketing and Communications Director Rebecca Rakoczy said the game will also serve as a chance for prospective students to explore the campus and its attributes.
“We thought it would be a good opportunity for people to see the campus as well as have a good time,” said Rakoczy.
Prior to game time, other activities will begin at 5 p.m. This includes allowing potential GPC students and their families to learn more about the school through information sessions, campus tours and dual enrollment information. Free application fee waivers will be available for students interested in applying to GPC.
“The GPC Family Baseball Night is an opportunity for our community to experience our great baseball park and also show potential students what we have to offer at GPC,” said GPC Newton Dean of Student Services Keith Cobbs.
