On October 27-28, the St. Andrew’s Community welcomed back to campus the Classes of 2002, 2007, and 2012 for their 15th, 10th, and 5th year reunions respectively.
This was the first year that the Alumni Office had been able to celebrate three milestone classes, and most importantly, 15 years of graduates from the upper school. The Class of 2002 is particularly a special class, as they watched the buildings on Southwest Parkway develop, leading them to be the first high school graduates, and Cornerstone Class, of St. Andrew’s Episcopal School.
On Friday, Alumni were invited to attend classes with current students, and visit with their former teachers and advisors. Conor Keelan, St. Andrew’s Class of 2012, gave an offering in Chapel. Conor addressed the upper school community about his fine arts education at SAS, and how his experiences and teachers motivated his career in the arts.
With the fall musical opening the same week, Alumni were offered complimentary tickets to the Saturday matinee showing “Catch Me if You Can” in the Dell Fine Arts Center. Afterwards, each class had intimate dinners at different locations to catch up with each other. The Class of 2012 enjoyed dinner at Boiler Nine, 2007 at The Grove Wine Bar + Kitchen Downtown, and 2002 had a picnic catered by Santa Rita on the upper school campus.
St. Andrew’s thoroughly enjoyed seeing so many Alumni back in town for Reunion 2017! Next year, the Classes of 2003, 2008, and 2013 will celebrate their milestone reunions. Any Alumni interested in getting involved in the planning process should contact St. Andrew’s Alumni Relations Manager Julia Driscoll at firstname.lastname@example.org.
