A group of 1967-73 engineering graduates of Tuskegee University, known as

the Tuskegee Old School Engineers, were in Atlanta the weekend of May 24-

26 for reunion activities.

The group also participated in the 14th annual Jazz Scholarship Brunch held

by the Atlanta Tuskegee Alumni Club.

The first reunion was held in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in 2001, to

celebrate the retirement of now deceased Ken Rocker of Lucent Technologies.

The group enjoyed barbecue, Rocker’s pool and held worship on Sunday.

This year’s activities included golfing at Wolf Creek and Happy Hour at

Sweet Auburn Seafood on May 24. After overflowing
