A little more than a year after their virtual graduation, the Class of 2020 returned to the Santa Catalina School campus on August 8 for a well-deserved celebration.
The young alumnae and their families gathered in Sullivan Court, with the recent graduates arranged in chairs as they would have been during Commencement. They each wore a red rose corsage, a nod to the bouquet of red roses traditionally carried by graduates.
As their names were called one-by-one, accompanied by a brief synopsis of their life since graduation, they came up to receive a white graduation stole from Jalynne Tobias Redman '72, president of the Alumnae Association. The stoles were embroidered with a gold Santa Catalina crest and their class year—a truly unique gift. The names of alumnae who couldn't attend were read as well, and their stoles sent in the mail.
The joyful day concluded with a luncheon. It was clear the alumnae were thrilled to see each other again, and to be back at the school that means so much to them.
