Our Alumni Speaker Series began in 2014. This event features Gaston College alumni from different professional backgrounds. This is an excellent opportunity for the Gaston College community to come together to listen, learn, and network with people who may be in their careers of interest. Each speaker allows a question-and-answer segment to answer any questions the audience may have.
