Greeting from New President of Alumni Association
Dear Alumnus of JGEC,
It is a great pride and at the same time huge honour and responsibility to get a chance to serve our Alma Mater through the JGEC Alumni Association. To take over from Parthada, our first batch alumnus, itself is a big honour for me. Since the formation of the JGEC Alumni Association in 2010-11 it has come a long way within a short span of only seven years. The wholehearted cooperation and active participation of some of our dear alumnus has paved the way to move forward with a very positive attitude of helping our junior brothers and sisters in the form of various supports and encouragements. The most commendable of the initiatives are:
1. “Bridging the Gap” movement to bring the theoretical knowledge and practical experience together
2. Technical innovative idea development through technical exhibitions
3. Arranging seminars on various fields by dignitaries from within and outside India
4. Providing Scholarships and other helps for the students
5. Clean Hostel drive to maintain hygienic living conditions for the young ones
The most important project taken up by the JGEC Alumni Association is to build the state of the art facility named “Kanchenjunga” within the campus to facilitate the activities in a more intense and effective way.
My task as the newly elected President of the Alumni Association will primarily be to carry the Torch, lit by Parthada and his efficient team, forward in a decent manner and add a few more feathers to the cap in the years to come. In this journey I need the whole hearted cooperation from all especially the past and the present Executive Committee members, Alumnus from all walks of life, near and far. Without the help and cooperation from all it will be impossible for me to bring the dream of the JGEC Alumni Association to reality.
With heartiest congratulations to all…
Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College 1968 Batch
