VSU Kicks Off Holiday Season With Lighting of the Palms



VALDOSTA — Valdosta State University hosted its annual Holiday Celebration and Lighting of the Palms Wednesday evening on the Front Lawn.

Dr. Richard A. Carvajal, president of VSU, and Dr. Vince A. Miller, vice president of the Division of Student Affairs, welcomed students, faculty, and staff to the much-anticipated festive event, which featured the VSU Spotlighters performing various holiday tunes; appearances by The Grinch, Santa’s elves, and Santa Blaze; a bit of magical South Georgia snow; hot chocolate; and an opportunity to watch everyone’s favorite green Who-hating grouch on the big screen.

During the event, Greek Life collected unwrapped toys to donate to Children’s Advocacy Center of Lowndes County Inc.

VSU invites its Valdosta-Lowndes County friends and neighbors to stop by and enjoy the lights throughout the holiday season.
