Our first Alumni Day was a rousing success. For all those who came back to the Quad to celebrate their connection to King’s and to their fellow alumni, thank you. Keep late May open on your calendar so we can make Alumni the next great annual King’s tradition!
Congratulations to Judge J. Elliott Hudson Distinguished Alumna Award recipient Robyn Tingley, Order of the Ancient Commoner inductees Lindsay Cameron Wilson and Stephanie McGrath, and the inaugural recipient of the Merakai Kudos Young Alumni Achievement Award, Ryan Hreljac.
“I think King’s means community and connectivity,” said Robert Hyslop, BA’69.
“The coziness of the quad and the sense of belonging to a small university where you knew everyone. Coming back, I still get that feeling; that sense of camaraderie that exists,” said Jane Bailey BA’71.
These are a few of the comments that are part of this short documentary recorded at King’s first Alumni Day which was celebrated on May 25, 2019. Alumni who graduated from as far back as 1965 to as recently as 2019 came together to celebrate the King’s community. They enjoyed delicious brunch with live music in Prince Hall where they spoke about coming home and the lifelong friendships they formed during their time at King’s.
Since 1846, alumni and fellow members of the King’s community have come together to share a delicious meal and celebrate alumni achievement. This year, we launch a new tradition: a full day of events celebrating our alumni.
On May 30, after Encaenia when we welcome our newest members to the association, we invite you back to the Quad for the alumni association’s annual general meeting, annual brunch, events in the afternoon and an evening of fun.
At the alumni annual brunch, we toasting our 50-, 25- and 10- year grads with special presentations to the classes of ’70, ’95 and ’10. We honour the recipients of the Judge J. Elliott Hudson Award, inductees into the Order of the Ancient Commoner, and the recipient of the Meraki Kudos Young Alumni Achievement Award.
