25th Reunion (Class of 1997)

Celebrating 25 Years

The Class of 1997 Remembers

In 1997, Madeleine Albright became the first woman to serve as U.S. Secretary of State; the Hale-Bopp comet was seen passing over Earth; Tiger Woods became the youngest golfer to win the Masters Tournament; Deep Blue, a chess-playing supercomputer, defeated grandmaster Garry Kasparov; Timothy McVeigh was convicted on 15 counts of murder and conspiracy for his role in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing; Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris; the Kyoto Protocol was opened for signature; HTML 4.0 was published by the World Wide Web Consortium; and on Roland Avenue, the great Gilman Class of 1997 walked across the graduation stage!

Looking forward to making new memories with members of your class and other fellow alumni? Join us for Alumni Weekend 2022, Friday, April 22-Sunday, April 24. REGISTER HERE.

Your Support Makes a Difference

We remain grateful to the many alumni who continue to support Gilman during this unpredictable time. Gifts in honor of your reunion help uphold Gilman's legacy of leadership, providing the boys following in your footsteps with the foundation needed to lead in the classroom, on the field, and in their communities. Your impact is immediate, giving students access to a dedicated faculty who lead by example every day; tuition assistance for exceptional scholars with demonstrated financial need; and innovative programs that allow the School to educate the whole boy in mind, body, and spirit.

On behalf of the students who are and will continue to be the beneficiaries of your generosity, thank you for investing in tomorrow's leaders with your gift. Give now at gilman.edu/giving or by Venmo: @GilmanSchool.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
