This past Saturday, The Dwight School Foundation hosted our annual Reunion Day for alumni — a day of reminiscing and speaking fondly of the time our alumni spent at Dwight, as well as all they've gone on to achieve in the years since! Take a look at the Class of '89, mixing and mingling with their very own classmate, Vice Chancellor, Blake Spahn. What a memorable event that successfully brought our Dwight, Franklin, and Anglo-American alums together to reconnect. If you couldn't make it to this Reunion Day, we look forward to seeing you at our next one!
