- 45th Reunion Weekend, May 5-6, 2017
The 45th saw some nice but lightly-attended events (see the 45th Reunion report), and we should now start thinking
about our 50th reunion coming up in 2022 — only a few years away.
- Athletic Shield Project (2012)
The conspicuous absence the Class of 1972 Athletic Shield was finally addressed in 2012.
A shield bearing the names of the varsity sport participants from our class was created years ago but mysteriously disappeared before it was ever displayed.
When the collection of class shields was hung in the Dixon Athletic Center after the move to the new campus, a noticeable gap was left, awaiting the missing shields from the classes
of 1972 and 1973. With assistance from the school, a new replacement shield was fabricated based on a modified version of the graphic design created for the
30th reunion. The new shield was unveiled at the 40th reunion dinner, and is now displayed along with all of the others.
"The class of '72 - one of the most stimulating, most challenging,
most satisfying and strongest classes that I have had the pleasure of working with.
The reasons for this are as diverse as the boys [sic] in the class."
