Alumni Day Feb 22, 2020

The highlight of Alumni Day for Class of '72 was recognition of our own Tom Hoster by the University for "exemplary and sustained serviced to Princeton Annual Giving" as our class agent for 28 years!  Tom is now the recipient of the Harold Helms Award, which is the single highest recognition that Princeton confers on an individual among the vast army that drives annual giving.  (Credit to Pete Wendell for that observation.) The award was formally presented at the Alumni Day luncheon on Saturday, with advance announcement the night before at the Annual Giving dinner at Prospect.

Our Alumni Day dinner was held at the Nassau Club. Our featured speaker was Ron McCoy, University architect, who is overseeing the planned expansion of the core campus and the development beyond Lake Carnegie.


Sydney Jordan ('72 Class Scholar) wins Pyne Prize

Our Class of 1972 Scholar, Sydney Jordan '19, has been awarded the Moses Taylor Pyne Prize, Princeton's most prestigious undergraduate recognition. She joins classmates Peter Cole '72 and David Jones '72, honorary classmate, Robert F. Goheen '40 *48 'h72, and former Class Scholar, Landis Stankievich ’08, as winners of the Pyne Prize.

Sydney accepted the Pyne Prize at the Alumni Day Luncheon on February 23 in Jadwin Gym. She gave an outstanding acceptance speech which tracked her Princeton career from its beginning as a freshman from Manassas, Va who joined every organization available. She learned Arabic because it seemed interesting and she will graduate with a degree in Philosophy and a certificate in Near Eastern Studies. After the Luncheon, she walked over to Carril Court where she and her teammates on the Women's Basketball Team thrashed Columbia in preparation for the Ivy League leadership battle at Penn on Tuesday.   

Here is her acceptance speech from the Alumni Day Luncheon.
