Last weekend, alumnae from near and far came home to Marymount for Reunion 2018. To kick off the weekend on Friday, alumnae were treated to student-guided tours of the Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. A festive cocktail reception followed, featuring a great food, conversation, and a photobooth that kept guests entertained for hours!
On Saturday, after tours of the Fifth Avenue building, an information session about the school of the future was held with architect Pam Campbell, followed by a panel of inspiring seniors who shared what life is like at Marymount today. Alumnae then enjoyed lunch and a performance from the Lower School Chorus as they caught up with their classmates and reminisced about their time at Marymount. Headmistress Concepcion Alvar acknowledged the classes ending in 3 and 8 who were celebrating special anniversaries and applauded the Classes of 1968, 1988, and 1998 for having the largest number of alumnae in attendance at Reunion. Jane Haher-Izquierdo '58 received the Sister Collette McManus Award, which is given annually to an alumna who has offered her passion, time, and talent to Marymount. The day wrapped up with a visit to the archives to revisit old memories and ended with a special Mass celebrated in the Chapel. It was a joyful weekend for reconnecting with old friends and teachers in the school where it all began.
