50th Reunion (Class of 1970)

Celebrating 50 Years

The Class of 1970 Remembers

King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley, visited President Richard Nixon in the White House Oval Office; Apollo 13 aborted its mission to the moon and returned safely home; The Beatles released their final album, "Let it Be;" the country celebrated its first Earth Day; and, perhaps most vivid in your memory, Gilman School's Class of 1970 proudly crossed the stage at graduation. 

Fifty years ago, in the presence of beloved teacher-coaches and the friends who had become family, you took innumerable lessons learned, humility, honor, integrity, respect, and excellence with you across the stage and into the great wide world. Please enjoy this walk down memory lane — a chance to revisit the Cynosure, news, and photographic memories from the year you graduated — in anticipation of your reunion celebration in October. 

Be sure to check your email for information about your class' virtual reunion this weekend!

Being Gilman...Always

During these uncertain times, Gilman continues to strive to strengthen the mind, body, and spirit of its students...and of its alumni. Now more than ever, we look to celebrate what connects us, what inspires us, and what lifts us up.

We hope that this trip down memory lane, a chance to write about an encounter with a classmate, a story of a fellow Greyhound giving back to the community, and seeing reminders that Gilman continues to be Gilman, offer an uplifting break in your day.
