On Friday, Galveston College concluded its 50th Anniversary celebration with a nod to both the past and the future. A historical marker from the Texas Historical Commission is now dedicated to Moody Hall, which was once the St. Mary’s Orphanage before becoming the hub of activity for registration and financial aid it is today. President Myles Shelton recognized the relevance of the past by stating, “It’s important that we recognize those who had the vision of what Galveston College is today.”
Officials put the final stamp on the 50th Anniversary celebration by burying a time capsule at Regents Hall courtyard, to be opened at Galveston College’s 100th year anniversary in 2067. College spokesman Joe Huff placed several items in the capsule, including photos, a Whitecaps baseball jersey, pennants, and community reports.
