Reunion brought alums from across the country together from October 4–6 to reconnect with friends and faculty, and to witness WT in action today. Friday began with a tea with fifth grade students, followed by opportunities to sit in on classes. Classmates Sarah Rackoff ’99 and Brandilyn ‘Brandi’ Dumas ’99 met with members of the Feminist Student Union and Black Student Union. The Reunion Luncheon provided the opportunity to right a wrong when Suzanne Motheral ’69 was presented with her diploma which had been withheld at the time of her graduation. The Welcome Back Reception saw an intermingling of alumnae/i from across the generations.
On Saturday, alums played field hockey and soccer, enjoyed a BBQ lunch, and explored, with Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation, the sites of some of the original buildings that housed Winchester Thurston’s predecessor schools.
On Sunday Alums of Color had an inaugural gathering to share their stories, learn about Equity and Inclusion at WT, and brainstorm ways of supporting the student experience.
