Dear Cushing Alumni,
It is with great regret that I announce that Cushing Academy will cancel this year's Reunion, previously scheduled for June 5-7, 2020, due to uncertainty regarding ongoing public health concerns and restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 virus.

With so much still unknown, we wanted to act quickly now to ensure the greatest safety of all members of our community, while providing as much advance notice as possible to those arranging travel and other plans. (For an archive of all our communications regarding the COVID-19 crisis to date, please visit  www.cushing.org/coronavirus .)

Our plan is to "double up" and celebrate all class years ending in 0 and 5, along with all those ending in 1 and 6, at a Reunion celebration to be held June 11-12, 2021. As at every Reunion, alumni from all classes are warmly invited back—not only those celebrating milestone reunions. We hope you will join us.

Though understandably disappointing, this cancellation will allow us to maintain the greatest possible flexibility as we work to serve our students amid the uncertainties of the spring term. I would like to thank you for the support our alumni family has offered at this challenging time.

I hope to see many of you at Reunion 2021. Let’s make it an extraordinary celebration. In the meantime, please know that we are thinking of all of you.

Sincerely,
Randy R. Bertin, Ed.D.
