This past weekend, more than 400 undergraduate College alumni and their families returned to the Winona Campus for Reunion Weekend. Alumni of all ages gathered to greet old friends, reminisce, and reconnect with Saint Mary’s. Friday featured golf, tours, class events, and a special reunion dinner for the Class of 1968, while Saturday’s highlights included a run through the bluffs, family picnic, all-class dinner, and awards presentation.
This year’s alumni award recipients included:
- Dr. Bobbie (Smith) Gostout CST’78, ’83 ‒ Distinguished Alumna Award
- Sarah (Bellingham) Laitinen ’07 ‒ Lasallian Service Award
- Judy (Mullins) Lucas ’83 ‒ Alumni Appreciation Award
- Ania McNamara ’11 ‒ Outstanding Young Alumna Award
The university values our former students. Through this weekend and many other events, we strive to keep them engaged with each other and the institution. We’re grateful for the support we continue to receive from alumni in a variety of forms, including philanthropic and volunteer support. Generous alumni benefactors are instrumental in our ability to enhance the campus, including the recent groundbreakings for Brother William Hall and the baseball clubhouse.
Alumni enjoyed reconnecting with friends, faculty, and staff who shaped their Saint Mary’s experiences. Thank you to all who helped make Reunion Weekend a success. See more photos from the weekend.
