Whitefield Alumni: Staying Connected
With the holiday season quickly approaching, our family has started to prepare some of our traditions. We have some that are pretty universal like eating turkey on Thanksgiving and some that are a little more unique like celebrating Reformation Day and St. Nicholas Day (a contradiction…I know). The traditions that we keep help define who we are as a family. Schools, especially small, close-knit schools, are the same way.
Alumni, when you graduated from Whitefield Academy, you didn’t just graduate as a Whitefield student. You graduated as having been King Creon or editor of the yearbook; you graduated as a member of Dr. Mac’s fifth period or a varsity soccer player, or, of course, as the defender of your thesis in the auditorium. And the neat thing is that because of Whitefield’s traditions, every year before you and every year after you, students have graduated and will graduate as those same roles too.
It’s impressive to think of the number of students who have trod and will trod the boards in the auditorium and the number of goals that will be scored in the same nets year after year.
As a Whitefield grad, you are part of something so much bigger than just the class of 2000 or the class of 2019; you are a part of the Whitefield community as a whole.
Those of us still in the school building want to make sure that you alumni still have ways to be involved with your alma mater, ways to see how vital your presence is still today in our community. If this interests you, we would love to have you join our alumni community and stay a part of Whitefield Academy.
