Alumni Legacy Connection
The Alumni Legacy Connection recognizes and honors those families of GCSC Alumni who have made receiving their education at Gulf Coast a family tradition. Each year, the Alumni Association recognizes one Legacy Connection (first and second generation alumni) with an invitation for lunch at GCSC’s Culinary Institute, a spotlight on the Alumni Association’s website, and more.
To be eligible, there must be at least two generations in your family that have attended GCCC and/or GCSC.
Legacy Connection Application:
*Include maiden name if appropriate
If selected, a photograph of the family will be requested and used on the GCSC Alumni
