Memorable photos from Sept. 9-16

A standing-room only crowd swarmed to Kermit Tipton Stadium on the campus of Science Hill High School back in September of 2015 to witness ETSU’s first football game in 12 years. The photo appeared in the Sept. 9, 2015 edition of the News & Neighbor.

This week is a memorable one as it marks the five-year anniversary of the return of ETSU football.

Five years ago, the Bucs kicked off a new era at Kermit Tipton Stadium on the campus of Science Hill High School. While the Bucs came up on the short end against Kennesaw State, nothing could dampen the spirits of the capacity crowd that showed up to cheer on the Blue & Gold after a 12-year absence.

Five years later, COVID-19 has sidelined the ETSU football team temporarily, but the Bucs plan to be back in action at some point next spring.

Three men who helped resurrect ETSU football were on hand to watch the Bucs return to action. From left, Phillip Fulmer, Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and ETSU President Dr. Brian Noland.
An edition of the News & Neighbor from early September of 2016 featured a new class of Healthcare Heroes. The Business Journal, our sister publication, has been honoring heroes in the healthcare industry for over a quarter-century. Although a ceremony wasn’t possible this year due to COVID-19, be on the lookout for photos of this year’s class in the October edition of the The Business Journal.
