Alumni Gather in London

Saint David's held its first London alumni reunion yesterday. The evening celebrated a visit to London by our former master teacher Tom McLellan, who taught at Saint David's for more than four decades before retiring from teaching and joining our Development Office in the fall of 2012.

Held at London's beautiful Inner Temple, more than 20 alumni from a span of classes, who live abroad, enjoyed the time spent reminiscing with their former teacher and mingling with each other.

Tom tells me that the evening was a great success, and that the alumni send their warm regards to their alma mater.

This event was made possible by the generosity of Lady Fiona Hooper (mother of Saint David's alumni William Donnelly '03 and Sean Donnelly '95) and the Rt. Honorable Sir Anthony Hooper, who invited us to gather at such a beautiful venue. Thanks also to Filippo Guerrini-Maraldi '78 and his wife Jennifer for providing the refreshments, and to Alex MacDonald '92 for all the work he did helping to organize the event.

The Saint David's alumni community is strong, both here in the U.S. and abroad.  I am always gratified by the deep connection our alumni feel for their first school, and we welcome our alumni to visit 89th Street, whenever they find themselves in New York.
