Lucky 13 Senior Alumni Gather During 13th Annual Reunion On September 16, 2006, more than 200 senior alumni from the Classes of 1924 to 1955 gathered in Thornton’s Helen Mitchell Atkinson Dining Commons to celebrate the 13th annual Senior Alumni Reunion. Sponsored by the Thornton Academy Alumni Association, each year current students volunteer to assist with the event, pouring endless coffee and bringing smiles to the older alumni. The event began in 1994 with a small gathering at The Cascade Inn and has grown into one of Thornton’s premier alumni events. (Top) Gladys Brown Johnson ‘40 enjoys a laugh.
