The Sequoyah Alumni Association invites all Sequoyah Schools’ graduates to their annual alumni celebration May 1 and 2. The first weekend in May has become known to the Sequoyah Schools’ alumni and staff as the annual “alumni weekend,” a homecoming of sorts, for graduates of the past, a time for anyone who has ever been a part of Sequoyah Schools to come home and see their friends, classmates and former teachers.
The Sequoyah Alumni Association has put together a host of events to give alums ample opportunities to come home, celebrate and share their memories of Sequoyah.
“Anyone with a connection to Sequoyah is invited to attend,” said Wauneta Sanders, event coordinator and Sequoyah alumnus.
Saturday will be filled with an alumni golf tournament at the Cherokee Trails Golf Course at 8 a.m., a family picnic and annual business meeting at 11:00 a.m. in the lower level of Sequoyah Schools’ The Place Where They Play, and a banquet at 5 p.m. in the Sequoyah Schools’ cafeteria followed by a social and dance at locations to be announced. Banquet tickets are $10 each and may be purchased at the door. Doors open at 4:30. 2015 Sequoyah Hall of Fame inductees will be announced at the banquet. New this year will be a "social hour", including dance music from the 50s, 60s and 70s, to be held in the Recreation Room at The Place Where They Play, after the banquet on Saturday evening, May 2.
Events will wrap up on Sunday, May 3 with a breakfast at 8:30 a.m. in the Sequoyah Schools’ cafeteria. Breakfast is $3 per person.
