Renbrook School Holds Alumni Event

Renbrook School held its annual Alumni Night on November 3. The evening started with a reunion reception followed by the 2018 Renbrook School Distinguished Alumni Award ceremony. This year’s Distinguished Alumni award recipients were Mally Cox-Chapman ’66 P’99 ’02 and James W. Cox-Chapman, M.D. ’66 P’99 ’02, both of Hartford.

Following the award ceremony, alumni of the Class of 1993 held a beautiful tribute in memory of their classmate Peter Wertheim ’93 of New York, NY.

Alumni finished out the evening with a campus crawl that featured a different culinary course, a current curriculum demonstration, and memorabilia from milestone reunion classes in different locations around campus. Highlights included the Math Center, the World Languages program, and a STEAM design challenge complete with Spheros!
