Alumni from Classes 1956, 1971 & 1972, 1976 & 1977, 1981 & 1982, 1986, and 1991 returned to campus on Saturday, May 14 to celebrate their reunions (in some cases, a year early to join with another class!). The evening started with campus tours led by current students.
Immediately following was a reception in Ahmanson Plaza, during which Prep’s Jazz Band, led by music instructor Jon Murray, took to the stage and “jazzed” up the crowd of over 140. Current and former faculty members joining the festivities were Susan Babson, Peter Bachmann, Todd Frost ’88, Rob Lewis, Joe Maggio, Rob McLinn, Jon Murray, Scott Myers, Garrett Ohara ’84, John Plumb ’64, Alex Rivera, Roger Wasby, and Jacki Williams-Jones and her husband, Michael.
For the first time ever at a Reunion Day event, guests were treated to a performance in Norris Auditorium by some of our current students and arranged by Rob Lewis, the Head of our Performing Arts Department. After class photographs were taken, alumni gathered in class groups to dine together and continue the festivities with their classmates.
Alumni traveled from all over to attend this event, but the prize for traveling the furthest goes to Skip Bartow ’86, who came all the way from Anchorage, Alaska!
