The Heathwood Class of 1995 had an absolutely fabulous reunion weekend in September! We began with a Friday afternoon/evening informal Happy Hour gathering at Tazza in Trenholm Plaza. We had between 15-20 people attend.
The next morning, we invited all of the families to come out and participate in thePEAK courses, led by Stan Wood and Brice Spires (’09). About 8-10 families were represented on that morning, and I also took some folks on a quick tour around campus to see all of the changes that had taken place since they were last here. The Plaid Peddler staff were also kind enough to come in and open the bookstore for an hour on Saturday morning so people could purchase Highlander attire. We were extremely grateful for that opportunity as well.
The “big event” kicked off at the home of Chris Alessandrini Carrington in King’s Grant. We had the most fun! Our classmates came into town from Charleston, Rock Hill, Charlotte, Georgia, Connecticut, Florida, and California!
There were some people who hadn’t been seen or heard from since we graduated. Throughout the night, we all talked about what an amazing experience we had at Heathwood and the influence that our Heathwood education has had on all of us throughout our lives. Of course, we couldn’t end the night without a toast to Mr. Gasque. We had somewhere between 40 and 45 people in attendance.
We are already planning a Christmas get-together because we can’t let another 5 years pass before we do this again. And we encourage other classes to do the same, because it was so great to catch up with so many classmates all at once.
