TCC president to be grand marshal of Springtime Tallahassee parade

springtimegenericlogo.jpgTallahassee, Fla. (March 28, 2016) — TCC President Jim Murdaugh will be grand marshal of the Springtime Tallahassee Grand Parade on Saturday, April 2. The annual parade, which includes more than 100 units from marching bands to colorful floats, attracts 70,000 spectators each year.

The parade is part of the 48th annual Springtime Tallahassee Festival, one of the city’s signature events. Festivities also include a music festival on the evening of April 1, plus a 10K race and a jubilee featuring entertainment stages and booths from local groups and vendors. The festival typically attracts more than 200,000 attendees.

Carol Leon, general chairman of Springtime Tallahassee, said that Murdaugh was a natural choice to serve as grand marshal this year.

“TCC has been a great partner over the years, and this is TCC’s 50th anniversary. When our executive director Jennifer Naff mentioned Dr. Murdaugh’s name as a possible grand marshal, I thought, ‘It can’t be any more perfect than that.’”

The parade begins at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. The parade route runs south on Monroe Street, starting near the intersection of Monroe Street and Brevard Street and continuing until just past the Florida Capitol.

The College will also have a float in the parade, which will be accompanied by students representing several TCC groups, including the Honors Program, the International Student Organization, and the TCC cheerleaders.

We’ll also have about a dozen alumni riding on our float, in recognition of our 50th anniversary and of the important role TCC graduates play in our community,” said Murdaugh.

The College will also host a booth on Adams Street with staff providing information about TCC’s wide variety of academic and career programs. The TCC Alumni & Friends Association will sponsor a selfie booth, and TCC’s science and healthcare programs will offer activities for children.
