REUNION WEEKEND 2013


WELCOME, ALUMNI, FORMER FACULTY, AND FRIENDS!

It’s been an exciting first year back at Williston Northampton for me. I am delighted to see you on campus and I have planned a fun and engaging program for you and your guests to enjoy. This weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to attend lectures by alumni, current students and faculty, hear from Head of School Robert W. Hill III P’15, ’19 about the Williston Northampton School of today and tomorrow, enjoy terrific live music, witness the first induction ceremonies for the Athletic Hall of Fame, and so much more! Most importantly, you’ll have the chance to connect with your fellow alumni and with Williston Northampton. Enjoy every minute! Huge thanks go out to all of the Reunion volunteers who worked with us throughout the year to build attendance, fundraise, and create fascinating programs for all Reunion-goers to enjoy! Warm regards, Jeff Pilgrim ’81 Director of Alumni Relations
