Beginning in 2015, the Virginia Tech Athletics Department presented letter jackets to first-time Monogram winners at the department’s bi-annual letter jacket recognition event.
"We are very proud of our letter winners,” said Director of Athletics Whit Babcock. "When you earn a letter from Virginia Tech, it not only represents your strength on the playing field, but also represents the student-athlete’s commitment to our Core Values of Integrity, Service, Honor, Excellence and Strong Together. It is our privilege and honor to provide them with their jackets in our newly established annual tradition.”
Annually, nearly 200 former student-athletes, managers, trainers, and video students are recognized for earning their first Virginia Tech Monogram.
The event is sponsored by the Virginia Tech Department of Athletics in conjunction with the Virginia Tech Monogram Club, which is an organization that seeks to honor, connect and recognize former student-athletes and their commitment to Virginia Tech Athletics.
