Paint the Town Maroon

Join us on April 8, 2016 in Johnson Square!

Put on your favorite maroon outfit and head on down to Johnson Square (map) on Friday, April 8th at noon!

We'll be sailing our giant pirate ship downtown so be on the look out!

The rally kicks off at noon, there will be food, games, prizes, and we'll be dyeing the fountains! You'll enjoy fun and fellowship with fellow Armstrong friends, alumni, students, faculty, and staff! 

Community support from our second annual Paint the Town Maroon provided a record number of scholarships, we can't wait to share the results of this years' fundraising campaign!

Armstrong student Ciara Miller expressed her thanks for the support she received from her Paint the Town Maroon scholarship:

“Thanks to kind donors like you, I have been provided the opportunity to focus on school and embrace new experiences while not being burdened by expenses. As I near graduation, I plan to work even harder to achieve my goal of attending graduate school. I know once I am in my profession, I will be able to give back and help others just like this scholarship has helped me. Thank you for providing this scholarship and allowing me the opportunity to receive it.”
