We’d like to extend another BIG thank you to everyone who returned to campus on October 4-5 for Homecoming and Reunion Weekend! Over 200 alumni, parents, and friends were on campus over the weekend, as we celebrated our friendships, enjoyed good food, and watched the Trinity-Pawling football team beat Taft! Classes from 1948-2014 were represented and many people traveled thousands of miles to be on campus for the 2019 Reunion Weekend festivities, including the gentlemen from the Class of 1969, who were celebrating their milestone 50th reunion!
Highlights of the weekend included the Distinguished Alumni Award ceremony and the Athletic Hall of Fame Induction. The Distinguished Alumni Award was developed to recognize an alumnus’ outstanding lifetime service to Trinity-Pawling School. Recipients of the award are members of the alumni community who have an established record of service to the School, and have demonstrated significant achievement in his or her profession. This is the highest award presented by the Alumni Association. This year’s Distinguished Alumni Award was presented to Al Rock ’59, P’87 and Ken Weeman ’59, P’91. We are tremendously thankful to these outstanding men for their continuous commitment to Trinity-Pawling School.
The Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 1998 to honor former teams, student-athletes, and coaches who have reflected honor upon Trinity-Pawling by virtue of their outstanding performance and exemplary contributions to their alma mater, community, and profession, and in doing so, reflect the philosophy of a college preparatory education and the ideals of sportsmanship. Congratulations to the Trinity-Pawling Athletic Hall of Fame 2019 inductees Foster Orton Jr. ’64, Peter Wyeth ’64, William P. Shannon Jr. ’69, and Sean Casey ’89.
Another high point of the weekend: The entire student body gathered in Gardiner Theater to listen to a Q & A conversation with Art Department Chair Ned Reade and renowned artist Stephen Hannock ’69 — it was fascinating!

Mark your calendar now for next year’s celebration — we’ll do it all again on October 2-3, 2020!
