J. Richard Thomas '72


These class notes come on the heels of what was a hugely successful 50th reunion for our class. Forty-plus members of our class attended one or more of the reunion events, and these events included functions such as the Third Grade Pen Pal Meetup, Supplee After Party, Class of ’72 Memorial Service, lunch with the Headmaster, and the Fetting/Smith Farewell lunch. The Memorial Service not only honored our deceased classmates, but allowed us the opportunity to dedicate our reunion to Messrs. Edeline, Fitzpatrick, Pika, Woodward, and Schloeder.

Many congratulations and thanks go to Angus Gephart and Scott Sherman for co-chairing our reunion with an extremely talented and hard working committee consisting of Messrs. Bowie, Byron, Fetting, Kelly, Orrick, Talalay, Taylor and yours truly. Thank you also to Mary Ellen Porter from the Gilman Development office for her outstanding efforts to make this a memorable weekend. I also wanted to thank Alan Kaufman for his coordination of what has been proven to be highly anticipated and well-received “monthly lunches” at different Baltimore restaurants with our classmates. This initiative has served to even further bring us together.

Once again, thanks to the entire group for making our 50th reunion the most successful of them all.
