Some of you may know me as a proud Chopper, RHL enthusiast and graduate of 1995! My name is Pat Brown and 2015-16 was my first year back in Wilcox, joining the faculty at Notre Dame.
I’m sure every grade thinks they had a great graduating class but we had a great graduating class! That’s probably why I get so excited every time we have the opportunity to gather for a reunion.
I was living in Ontario for both of our reunion years but I still managed to attend both events. After visiting the School for our 10 year reunion, the seed was planted-I began considering returning to Wilcox and teaching at Notre Dame. But it was our 20 year reunion that solidified my decision. I was amazed that even after so much time had passed, being back in Wilcox still felt like home.
I would strongly encourage you to attend your reunion-in fact, some of you may have already heard from me. It’s a great chance to see classmates you haven’t seen in years, the teachers who inspired you, and visit a community that became your second family. I mean, where else will you find teachers that will remember you 20 years later?
As a staff member, I saw firsthand how bursaries impact our students. I donate because I believe that giving starts at home.
I had a great time at our reunion and can’t wait to celebrate our 25th in 2020!
See you at Alumni Weekend!
