Troy University fans in the state of Alabama now have a way to show their Trojan pride on the water, just like they do on the roads, with the launch of the official TROY vessel identification sticker.
This spring, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency began offering vanity boat tags for state colleges and organizations, including Troy University. The tags, available for purchase from county registration offices, cost $50 above the normal cost of registration, and TROY receives $20 from each sale.
Like the TROY car and motorcycle tag program, money raised by the boat tags will fund student scholarships.
“We are proud to partner with ALEA to offer this new way for TROY fans to show their pride while providing support to Trojan students,” said Walter D. Givhan, Senior Vice Chancellor for Advancement and Economic Development.
State Sen. Gerald Dial, president pro tempore of the TROY Board of Trustees, played a key role in the development of the new distinctive boat tags. Dial and Rep. Margie Wilcox sponsored legislation in 2016 to establish the new boat tags, which also raise money for state parks.
