Paint the Town Maroon

On Thursday, April 3, Armstrong will host the ultimate pep rally in downtown Savannah.

Paint the Town Maroon, a city-wide celebration of Pirate pride, will take place in Johnson Square, located at Bull and E. Congress Street, beginning at noon. The Savannah Bank will serve as the presenting sponsor for this high-energy event.

Armstrong alumni, students, faculty, staff and supporters will join local business leaders to celebrate the university's 2013-2014 fundraising successes and to underscore how critical Armstrong is in our community. With alumni working in every field, from education to healthcare, Armstrong makes a positive difference every day and helps students Start Strong.

Paint the Town Maroon is free and open to the public and will feature food, prizes and more! Spirit activities start at noon. Armstrong president Dr. Linda M. Bleicken will address the crowd at 12:15 p.m., followed by a picnic lunch in the square.
