Alums spanning the Classes of 1968 through 2022 returned to campus for Bush Alumni Day on Saturday, June 10. The former classmates gathered in the Commons and Benaroya Theater for an afternoon filled with laughter and reminiscing, campus tours, exploration of the Bush archive, a video memory booth, a caricature artist, and a sneak peek at Gracemont Alumni Hall’s nearly completed refresh.
Alumni Day also marked the launch of The Bush School’s Centennial Brick Campaign—an opportunity for alums to leave their mark on the campus as we enter our one hundredth year. Alums can purchase a brick of their own—with their own name and message, or as a tribute to another Bush community member—or they can decide to pair up and have a group brick installed.
