We are happy to announce the dates for our 2021 Homecoming. It will be held on Friday, October 22 and Saturday, October 23. We will have our annual event at Neville Hall on Friday night with food trucks and a great band, as well as our Annual Alumni Awards on Saturday morning. The Ben Hay Hammet Society will also have a reception on Friday evening–invitations will be sent this summer. So mark your calendars and keep your eyes open for more specific information.

We will be reaching out to our Reunion classes for 2021, as well as last year’s reunion classes, later this spring to plan for reunion class activities. In the meantime, we hope you’ll visit the link below to see our 2020 Alumni Awards Recipients we honored virtually this past fall.
