Panthers Connecting Worldwide on the Ranney Alumni Network

Whiteout Game

We sponsored an alumni tent at the varsity boys' and girls' soccer games and gave out Ranney swag, alumni goodies, and apple cider donuts to dozens of alumni families.

Alumni v. Alumni Soccer Game

We concluded the weekend with our first annual alumni soccer game attended by members of classes '76 through '21! Players divided into blue and white teams playing one nail-biting game with the final score 4-3 (with a sister v. sister game-ending goal!). We cannot wait for next year's game (and believe team recruitment has already started!).

Celebrating Mrs. Margaret Mahon

On October 17, we honored the life and legacy of Mrs. Margaret Mahon, second Head of Ranney School, who passed away in July.

Among attendees were past and current faculty, past and current Board of trustees, alumni, alumni families, and Mrs. Mahon's children and grandchildren. The program included remarks by Dr. John Griffith, Head of School, Dr. Lawrence Sykoff, former Head of School, Peggy Mahon-Grause ('80), Senator Vin Gopal '03, and Patricia Kurdyla.

With the help of current student Kiri Patient '23, we are creating a special video from the event which will be posted on Facebook and the Ranney Alumni Network soon.

Congratulations, Margo Chaly '04 for correctly answering our trivia question from last month's edition! The senior vesting tradition began in 2003, and since, each senior receives a vest in the fall at a ceremony.
