In early January, The Harker School alumni returned to the upper school campus to see old friends, teachers and advisors. MaryEllis Deacon, the director of alumni relations, said the alumni were also eager to “have some of the Harker food they miss.” More than 150 alumni – all college-aged – came back to the school to wander the campus again, and trade stories both about Harker days and current events in their lives. Deacon said, “Screams and hugs were exchanged from friends they haven’t seen in months or even years.” She particularly enjoyed watching the alumni talk about their favorite Harker memories, and seeing how excited they got to see their advisors and friends. “My favorite part was really getting to know the alumni, and hearing the stories they have to share,” she said.
