2014 Alumni Reunion

On Friday, May 2, more than 150 alumni and guests returned to Browning for the 2014 Alumni Reunion. Guests included alumni spanning across seven decades, from the Classes of 1949 through 2009, along with their guests and a number of current and former faculty. The Alumni Association's highest honor, the Charles W. Cook '38 Alumnus Achievement Award, was presented at the evening reception to Wes Vernon '49. Mr. Vernon, a veteran broadcast journalist, was accompanied by his wife, four children and their respective spouses. Also during the reception, the Stephen S. Perry '76 Memorial Class Representative Awards were presented to four outstanding class representatives, followed by the Class of 2004's presentation of its 10th Reunion Gift to Headmaster Clement. Earlier in the day, the entire Upper School had the opportunity to hear from an Alumni Career Panel focused on journalism and media. This year's panelists were: Wes Vernon '49, David Kimball-Stanley '05 and Alex Vadukul '07. At noon, the annual invitation-only True Grytte Society & Consecutive-Year Donors Luncheon was held for the eighth year in a row at a nearby private club, where five new members were inducted to the True Grytte Society, and consecutive-year donors were recognized for giving for more than twenty (and in some cases thirty) consecutive years to Browning's Annual Fund. Tours of the School and Browning's new facilities were also big highlights of the day. Special thanks to everyone who helped make this year's Alumni Reunion a success!
