The Class of 1947 James Scott Clancy Memorial Reunion Trophy Recipient: Class of 1966
Turk and Tiny, the dynamic duo Reunion Chairs, were at the helm along with so many devoted committee members who all came together to pull off one fabulous and inclusive 50th! Their student crew was well organized and dedicated to making sure things went smoothly. The Class of 1966 has always developed a strong relationship with their student crew members. For their 50th reunion, they invited all former crew managers and crew members to join them at their headquarters site. The 50th reunion was a great example to future reunion classes — three cheers to all '66 for leading this effort. 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 1981
The 2016 judges overwhelmingly agreed that '81 Reigns was by far the most original and entertaining P-rade entry. The choreographed umbrella dance to "Singing in the Rain" was a highlight!
The Class of 1960 Quenby Award
For the Class wearing the most imaginative costume.
The Class of 1960 Quenby Award Recipient: Class of 2011 for having the most imaginative reunion costume on the occasion of their 5th Reunion. The Class of 2011's "APOLLO 11" space-age jumpsuits were a big hit in the P-rade!
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 Recipient: Class of 1966 for developing a strong relationship with their grandchild class. '66 initiated these strong ties with the Class of 2016 by welcoming them to campus as freshman at the Pre-rade in September of 2012. Numerous '66 and '16 well attended gatherings were organized over the next four years. Last year, '66 invited their grandchild class to show their Senior Slideshow at the 50th headquarters site, they co-sponsored a "grandparent-grandchild classes" comedy event ("Comedy After Coffee"), and many '66ers demonstrated how to give a heartfelt Locomotive Cheer to the senior class while gathered on the steps of Blair Arch for their class photo. In addition, '66 celebrated their "grandparent-grandchild classes" relationship in the P-rade, with the Class of 2016 leadership carrying a '66-'16 banner. The Class of 1966 has embraced the Class of 2016 with mentorship and friendship, and have inspired other classes to follow suit.
