A newly painted pirate ship, students, staff, faculty and alumni took to the streets of downtown Savannah March 17, 2016, for the 192nd St. Patrick’s Day parade.

The pirate ship was hand-painted by Armstrong Graphic Designer Wes Johnson and sailed along the parade route with 350 other floats. Green stickers bearing the Start Strong motto were handed out to spectators along the parade route, some of whom, showed their pirate pride by chanting “Start strong Armstrong.”
