On Friday, April 30th, the class of 2021 gathered on the Field House terrace for their first official alumni event. A barbecue lunch was provided by The Episcopal Alumni Association, and alumni parents who have graduating seniors were invited to attend. Andy McCracken ’83 spoke to the group about community and the special opportunity to stay involved and have a support system long after their days as students. The event featured a meaningful component called “Thank Back, Give Back” where students were encouraged to write a note to a teacher, staff member or coach that made an impact on them during their time at Episcopal. With all the excitement and bustle of senior year, it was a significant moment to watch seniors reflect on their Episcopal journey and express gratitude to those who supported, encouraged, and inspired them along the way. This week, development staff delivered the notes to individuals who were recognized along with a door hanger they could proudly display to signify their influence in the life of a senior knight.
The 2020-21 school year has been filled with obstacles, but this senior class has come together and made the most of their last year. The event was an important reminder that while their days as students were coming to an end, the alumni community is ready to welcome them with open arms! Once a knight, always a knight!
