The Class of 1947 James Scott Clancy Memorial Reunion Trophy
For the best planned and run major reunion.
The Class of 1947 James Scott Clancy Memorial Reunion Trophy Recipient: Class of 1997 for having the best planned and run major reunion. Impressively, the Class of 1997 also won the Clancy for their 10th reunion in 2007. The Alumni Council’s Committee on Reunions was impressed with the 20th Reunion enterprise consisting of four Reunion Chairs coordinating logistics with a resourceful Committee and Student Crew who worked together seamlessly to pull off one fabulous and inclusive 20th! Can you hear the rhythm of the steel drum band? Their headquarters site was transformed to “Tigeritaville It’s ’97 o’clock somewhere,” enwrapped in a beach mural, with palm trees and lanterns under the tent, and a tiki bar. This reunion was a great example to future reunion classes -- three cheers to ‘97! It was a job well done!
The Class of 1945 P-rade Trophy
For the most enterprising P-rade entry.
The Class of 1945 P-rade Trophy Recipient: Class of 1967
The 2017 judges overwhelmingly agreed that once again, Clear the Track ’67’s back was by far the most original and entertaining P-rade entry. And now, Clear the Track!! All Aboard!! Clear the Track!! Sixty-Seven's Back!! The Class of 1967 holds the record for winning the P-rade Trophy an impressive five times. Kudos to the 50th reunion committee and of course, their One and Only P-rade Chair and Costume Chair – the dynamic Tulenko brothers – Tom and Tim!
The Class of 1960 Quenby Award
For the Class wearing the most imaginative costume.
The Class of 1960 Quenby Award Recipient: Class of 2002 for having the most imaginative reunion costume on the occasion of their 15th Reunion. The Class of 2002’s “Happy Trails (or tails) ’02 You” Western-themed costumes were a big hit in the P-rade! They even featured inflatable western-themed tigers galloping down the P-rade route.
The Alumni Council Committee on Reunions Award for Innovation
For particular innovation that expanded the dimension of Reunions and was not otherwise recognized.
The Alumni Council Committee on Reunions Award for Innovation is given in recognition of a regional association who has developed new and innovative programming. This year the award is presented to the Princeton Club of Georgia for their Paw-lunteer Days of Service. This signature service initiative serves both local and international communities through a variety of hands-on projects and brings together a diverse range of alumni ranging from the Class of 1964 to the Class of 2021… wow! Their creative branding and communications encouraged alumni to “Paw it forward” and clearly created a sense of teamwork and belonging that strengthened their collective bond to be united in Princeton’s service.
