It’s been a very busy spring at the alumni association, with events and activities continuing this summer!
Our Pirate Alumni Road Race & Fun Run had almost 450 runners. This event raised more than $6,000 for the Alumni Scholarship program! Everyone enjoyed the brighter, bolder colored powder this year. Thanks again to those who ran or donated and also to our wonderful volunteers!
Graduation is always an exciting time. We welcomed new alumni at the Senior Celebration Dinner and Candlelight Ceremony on May 7, and we honored alumni of 50 years at the class of 1965 Golden Alumni Reunion. The senior dinner was a maxed-out event with more than 500 participants. We had 21 members of the class of 1965 participate in the reunion.
Our series of family and social events, Bring the Whole Crew, continues! More than 30 people came to our special tour and tasting at Williamsburg Winery on May 31. Pirates enjoyed getting to know one another in a beautiful historic setting.
Virginia Pirates also got a chance to connect at a networking reception in the Richmond area on May 28. Tweny-five participants heard from featured alumni Garry Dudley ’92 and Lee Anne Henderson Tragle ’94 MAEd at The Boathouse at Sunday Park.
More activities are coming up across the Pirate Nation! We’re coming to the Triad with networking events in Greensboro on Tuesday, June 16 and in Winston-Salem on Wednesday, June 17. Then we’ll be in Wilmington for a networking event on Friday, June 19 and a Bring the Whole Crew event at Jungle Rapids Family Fun Park on Saturday, June 20. And we’ve got an outing to the US National Whitewater Center in Charlotte on Saturday, July 18.
