Generous Alumni Continue to Support Their School
Each spring, hundreds of MI, CDS and MICDS alumni return to campus to celebrate Reunion Weekend. With more than 600 alumni in attendance, classes representing the 5th to the 80th reunions reconnected over the 2019 Reunion Celebration Dinner and campus tours in addition to class parties, luncheons, baseball games, academic programs and more!
Classes also took part in the longstanding custom of the Reunion Class Gift, giving back in honor of their milestone reunions. Volunteers within each class partnered with the Alumni & Development Office to set fundraising and participation goals. All alumni celebrating a five-year reunion were asked to make a meaningful gift and help their class reach its goals. The 25th reunion class of 1994 celebrated their reunion by raising more than $100k in support of Tuition Benefit while the 50th reunion class celebrated by reinvesting in the James A. Baur Class of 1969 Financial Aid Fund. Together, reunion alumni raised $520,698 for MICDS this year!
It is with deep gratitude that we thank those who participated in their Reunion Class Gift. In the 2019-2020 school year we will welcome back a new cohort of reunion classes, including the Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day classes of 1970 who will celebrate their 50th reunion and the MICDS class of 1995 celebrating their 25th reunion. We look forward to honoring them at the 2020 Reunion Weekend and helping them achieve their own Reunion Giving goals.
