Coming Home MAY 13 AND 14 brought more than 600 graduates and guests to campus for Reunion Weekend. Graduates visited their old stomping grounds and reminisced about the good ol’ days. The event kicked off on May 13 with the Noblest Dinner in the Castle for graduates who have already celebrated their 50th reunion. Saturday brought a full schedule of events, including a panel discussion on the school’s history with Head of School Bob Henderson ’76, English faculty and former Head of School Dick Baker and Joyce Eldridge, senior writer and former director of communications. The celebration, part of Nobles’ sesquicentennial, also included a graduates assembly, the Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony, a carnival and a cookout lunch, provided by b.good owners Jon Olinto and Anthony Ackil, both ’94. Several graduates were also recognized. Henderson announced Timothy Leland ’56 as the 2016 Distinguished Graduate and Becky Barbow ’06 as the Young Graduate Award Winner. Michele Abrecht ’84, vice president of the Graduates Association, awarded Winston “Hooley” Perry ’52 with the Lawson Service Award for his dedication as class agent. Members of the Class of 1991, Greg Hoffman and Keith McLean, awarded the Coggeshall Award to Tom Resor, a faculty member who was of particular importance to the members of the current 25th reunion class. In addition, the Nobles Athletics Hall of Fame inducted the 1996 girls crew team, Skip Wood ’66, Robert Alevizos ’76, Mark Fayne ’06 and Ayla Brown ’06.
