Alumni Updates

Spirit Day on Saturday, Sep 30 was a huge success with an impressive alumni turnout. Families, friends and alumni all came together to cheer for our Mustangs, play games and enjoy some delicious food. The Alumni Council sold quesadillas, shirts and hats to raise money for future council activities.

Spirit Day-goers also included special guests as the Class of ’87 held their 30th reunion on campus during the festivities. They participated in a guided welcome-back tour of campus, photo-ops with visiting sumo wrestlers and the historic gate, as well as all the usual Spirit Day activities. Alum and reunion coordinator Robert Sharp '87 also presented a gift of $7,700 to the Strength and Courage Award on behalf of the Class of ’87. Thank you Class of '87! (read more)
