Family Reunion Picnic a Hot Success!



The first-ever Family Reunion Picnic, held this past Saturday on Holdren Field, was a huge success! Despite the 90+ degree heat, hundreds of alumni, their children, current students, parents, faculty and friends showed up for three hours of fun, food, music, and reminiscing. Guests enjoyed both classic picnic fare and updated dishes while a student jazz band serenaded the crowd. School tours, provided by Phil Tharp and Pat Taylor, provided a respite from the heat and highlighted our wonderful facility for those who may not have had the opportunity to visit it before.

So many people helped make this day happen that we cannot thank everyone in this article. However, special thanks to the following: Hal Waller, Portia Chan, Phil Tharp, Pat Taylor, Paige Hawkins, Karl von Klein, Irvin Charles, Sana Khalid, Julie Weissend, Lin and Andrew Tynes, Bill Yates, and the many volunteers who helped make this a fabulous day for the Maggie Walker family!
