CC/UC Alumni Tailgate Together in Rome

Williamsburg, Ky. - University of the Cumberlands’ (UC) Alumni Association announces two special gatherings in Rome, Georgia on Saturday, December 21, 2013. The events will take place prior to the 4:30 p.m. 58th Annual NAIA National Football Championship Game at Barron Stadium. Tickets are $25.00 at the gate and all seating is general admission.

First, the UC Alumni Association will host a complimentary lunch to all alumni who arrive between 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at Fuddruckers restaurant located at 595 Riverside Parkway NE, Rome, Georgia. Alumni are encouraged to wear school colors, both past and present, to receive a free lunch including a burger or chicken, french fries, and a drink.

Second, the UC Alumni Association will host THE GARY TILLMAN MEMORIAL TAILGATE PARTY in the Barron Stadium parking lot from 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. leading up to kickoff.

UC will pay tribute to the late Gary Tillman, an Indoor and Outdoor NAIA Track All-American and alumnus who hailed from Rome, Georgia. Tillman remains an example of excellence in athletics, business and community leadership, and much more.

Immediately following graduation from UC in 1981, Tillman moved back to Rome where he coached track and cross country at Berry College. Later, he started Tillman Insurance and Aviation Insurance Agency of North America with his wife and business partner, Denise. All friends and family of Gary Tillman are invited to attend this tailgate party and remember our inspirational friend whose life was cut short much too soon in 2005.
