St. Andrew's-Sewanee School welcomed more than 250 alumni and their guests for the school's annual Alumni Weekend, May 31-June 2. St. Andrew's-Sewanee, formed by the merger of Sewanee Academy (SA) and St. Andrew's School (STA) in 1981, also welcomes the alumni of its parent schools, including St. Mary's School (SMS) and the Sewanee Military Academy (SMA). Milestone reunions this year (5th, 10th, 25th, etc.) are from the classes ending in 4s and 9s, but many SAS alumni and their families make this an annual pilgrimage.
The weekend began on Friday, May 31. Highlights of the day include golf at The Course at Sewanee, the St. Mary's Alumnae Soirée, an All-Alumni Jazz Dinner & Lawn Party, and a bonfire.
Saturday morning began with yoga before the Alumni Association meeting and awards. Alumni celebrating their 50th reunion will receive medallions and Artie Manning SMA '66 received the St. Andrews'-Sewanee Service Award. SMA alumni gathered in Sewanee in the afternoon for their annual memorial service. The evening included reunion cocktail parties, class photos, and the All-Alumni Dinner. The evening ended with a bonfire.
Alumni Weekend concluded on Sunday after the SMA Alumni March from Quintard Hall to All Saints' Chapel, a Eucharist service in the St. Andrew's Chapel, and a farewell brunch. The Rev. Hallock Martin StA '69, son of former St. Andrew's headmaster the Rev. Franklin Martin, preached.
The community joined us along the march route on Sunday morning. SMA alumni marched from Quintard Hall to All Saints' Chapel led by the Highland Drum and Pipe Corps. Community members also attended Sunday's Eucharist service in St. Andrew's Chapel at 10:20 a.m.
