Pomfret turned 125

Pomfret celebrated its 125th anniversary. It started with a series of regional events spread all across the globe, and culminated with a special anniversary edition of Reunion Weekend.

REUNION 125 | May 10–12, 2019

Pomfret turned 125 years old and boy did we celebrate. For this special anniversary edition of Reunion Weekend, we invited every member of every class back to join in the festivities. In the end, more than 700 alumni, former faculty, and friends took us up on the invitation, making Reunion 125 THE largest Pomfret gathering in a generation!

The highlight of the weekend was an amazing Red and Black Gala, replete with dinner, dancing, live music, alumni awards, and fireworks. An especially poignant moment came in the weekend when two hundred people showed up for the dedication of the Hagop Merjian Wrestling Room, including 95-year-old former headmaster Jay Milnor. Another highlight was Pomfret’s 50 Years of Women celebration, where Naomi Vega-Nieves ’69 was recognized for her pioneering action as the first female graduate of Pomfret School. It was an amazing end to an amazing year.
