The Cattleman’s Complex filled with approximately 200 seniors from all over the Wiregrass for Troy Bank and Trust’s fifth annual “Grad Night.” 

“We started promoting the event before Christmas break and then pushed really hard in January with all the schools,” Diana Lee, TB&T Marketing and Public officer, said. “It is a way for us to kick off their graduation season give the seniors a fun time.”

Graduating seniors from Pike County, Dothan, Coffee County and all the way to Auburn were invited to come mingle and chat with other graduating seniors, while also meeting some of the local companies in Pike County.

“It is a great way to introduce themselves to other seniors they could be going to college with,” Lee said. “Plus, it is a great way to make new friends. We are offering games, photo booths, door prizes and major prizes like a Yeti cooler, Drone, iPad mini and an Apple watch.”

Employees from Troy Bank and Trust also use the night as an opportunity to serve the soon-to-be graduates and give them their first exposure to the bank, as well as other companies.

“We look forward to Grad Night because we get to honor those graduating in the spring,” Kayla Wright, Marketing and PR assistant, said. “It is fun to watch all the schools come together and to make the senior feel special. We get a lot of business support as well from the local communities and it is good to support them, too.”

Food, music from DJ Hendock, coffee and even a hair stylist from all over Pike County came out to support and serve the seniors. Tables from voter registration, Charles Henderson Child Health Center, Troy Public Relations and Human Relations as well as Troy Bank and Trust and The Messenger.
