We have made the difficult decision to cancel all Alumni and Reunion Weekend events scheduled between April 30 - May 3, 2020. This includes our beloved annual on-campus events including the Alumni Roundtable, 50-Year Club Dinner, Alumni Family Picnic, and Class Reunion Dinners. If you have already purchased a ticket, you will be contacted by a member of our team to process a refund. 

Poly’s Alumni and Reunion Weekend is one of the most anticipated events of the year bringing together hundreds of alumni, parents of alumni, families, and former faculty and staff from near and far. Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community members both on and off-campus. The public health guidance we are receiving continues to emphasize not only good personal hygiene practices but also enforcing social distancing and avoiding social gatherings to restrain the spread of COVID-19. With this in mind, it became impossible to continue with reunion planning.

In the coming months, we look forward to sharing our alternative plans for celebrating these special milestone events with your classmates and friends. We realize that this is an inconvenience and disappointment for many of you. I want to assure you that we only took this step after thoughtful consideration and consultation with local health departments, school leadership, and members of our Alumni Board. 

If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to connecting with you at future alumni reunion festivities to celebrate milestones, friendships, and all that makes Poly so special.

Alumni make an impact

Each year, gifts from our alumni community account for nearly 25 percent of the school’s fundraising goals. Recognizing the uniqueness of the Poly community and the opportunities and experiences afforded by a Poly education, alumni have maintained a strong commitment to supporting Poly financially. By contributing to Poly at any level, alumni donors ensure current and future students benefit in the same ways they did when they were Poly students. Many alumni choose to give a special contribution to Poly in honor of their reunion.

During the reunion celebrations, the Alumni Association presents two giving awards, the Gosney Award to the class with the greatest cumulative giving and the Willis Stork Award to the class with the highest participation rate, to recognize the increased participation and support. Learn more about the Poly Fund and how your gift makes an impact.
