Reunion 2020 connected over 300 alumnae from 50 different graduation classes (1950 to 2020) living around the world (Bay Area to New York to Scotland to Hong Kong). We hosted three virtual events: Alumnae Courage Panel, Reunion Celebration Presentation, and Cocktails on the virtual Circle.
The Reunion Celebration Presentation included updates on distance learning, our school year theme of Justice, and Castilleja Reimagined as well as stories of contributions alumnae are making in their communities and how they are giving back to Castilleja. This year, the Distinguished Alumna Award went to Julie Packard '70 and the Outstanding Service Award went to Anne Macdonald '80. Lastly, the winner of the Castilleja Cup was the Class of 2010!
To round out the first virtual reunion, almost 100 alumnae joined Cocktails on the virtual Circle and entered breakout rooms by class or decade. It was heartwarming to see the range of alumnae from the Class of 1950 (who had just learned to "Zoom") celebrating their 70th reunion to the Class of 2020, who had a packed breakout room celebrating their first reunion.
