SAS Alumni Weekend

Event

St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School will welcome over 250 alumni and their guests for the school’s annual Alumni Weekend, May 31-June 2. St. Andrew’s-Sewanee, formed by the merger of Sewanee Academy (SA) and St. Andrew’s School (STA) in 1981, also welcomes the alumni of its parent schools, including St. Mary’s School (SMS) and the Sewanee Military Academy (SMA). Milestone reunions this year (5th, 10th, 25th, etc.) are from the classes ending in 4s and 9s, but many SAS alumni and their families make this an annual pilgrimage. 

The weekend begins on Friday, May 31. Highlights of the day include golf at The Course at Sewanee, the St. Mary’s Alumnae Soirée, an All-Alumni Jazz Dinner & Lawn Party, and a bonfire.

Saturday morning begins with yoga before the Alumni Association meeting and awards. Alumni celebrating their 50th reunion will receive medallions and Artie Manning SMA ’66 will receive the St. Andrews’-Sewanee Service Award. SMA alumni will gather in Sewanee in the afternoon for their annual memorial service. The evening includes reunion cocktail parties, class photos, and the All-Alumni Dinner. The evening ends with a bonfire.

Alumni Weekend concludes on Sunday after the SMA Alumni March from Quintard Hall to All Saints’ Chapel, a Eucharist service in the St. Andrew’s Chapel, and a farewell brunch. The preacher will be the Rev. Hallock Martin, StA’69, son of former St. Andrew’s headmaster the Rev. Franklin Martin.

Throughout the weekend there will be activities for children.

The community is invited to join us along the march route on Sunday morning beginning at 9:30 a.m. SMA alumni will march from Quintard Hall to All Saints’ Chapel led by the Highland Drum and Pipe Corps. The community is also welcome at Sunday’s Eucharist service in St. Andrew’s Chapel at 10:20 a.m.

Area alumni are asked to register online for all other activities on the school’s main website <sasweb.org> or by contacting the Alumni Office at <sasalumni@sasweb.org>. Registration will also be available onsite Friday starting at 10 a.m. and Saturday 9 a.m – 1 p.m.
