Reunion 2022 Recap

In early April, after a two-year hiatus, St. Andrew’s held its first Alumni Reunion Celebration, welcoming the classes of 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016 and 2017 back to campus. Though many of these classes had their celebrations postponed due to the pandemic, it was worth the wait to enjoy such a beautiful weekend together.

On Friday, April 1, Lily McCall ’05 kicked off our Reunion Celebrations by giving the Chapel offering to our community and alumni in attendance, citing her love for St. Andrew's, and the lessons she learned here. Malia Aycock and Steven Garcia ’02, helped by seniors Josh Gilbert and Annie Goldman, gave a tour to our alumni visitors, some areas of which did not exist when some of our alumni were students. The evening wrapped up with a casual welcome happy hour at Radio Coffee + Beer, owned by Jack Wilson ’02.

As the sunny weather continued, so did the reuniting and reminiscing at the Saturday night Alumni Reunion Dinner. Alumni were joined by many of their former teachers and advisors to enjoy an evening of cocktails and dinner, and a chance to watch the Final Four NCAA tournament in the Chapel. The biggest milestone belonged to the Class of 2002, who was celebrating their 20th Reunion, the first in our upper school history.

During cocktail hour, our Class of 2002, former and current faculty took a moment to celebrate the retirement of Veronica Putney at the end of the 2021-22 school year. Veronica has served St. Andrew’s for 27 years, teaching inside the classroom and beautifying our campus, as is evident with her colorful gardens in the Hobby Commons. Several current and formal faculty members, daughter Ashley ’04, and members of the Class of 2002, gathered together to share toasts in honor of Vero.
It was such a pleasure to see so many alumni back on campus, and we hope you’ll join us for the next big event. As always, if you’re interested in getting your class back together, more involved, or have event ideas, please email Julia Driscoll at
