Editor — Reunion Books (for 25th and 50th Reunions)

The editor organizes, edits and oversees the production of the Reunion book, including the collection of letters, photos and other submissions from classmates. The editor has one of the most rewarding jobs on the Reunion committee and also one of the most time-consuming. Reunion books are part of the reason attendance approaches or exceeds 50 percent. These books make fascinating reading and are guaranteed to generate enthusiasm for Reunion. Sorting out letters and photos and deciding what other materials to include in the book takes many hours, but the main ingredient for success is a hard-working editor. Most classmates will not submit materials unless reminded or persuaded by someone else in the class. Alumni and Parent Programs financially supports publication of the books for the 25th and 50th Reunion classes, as long as at least 50 percent of the class is represented.

Sometimes other Reunion classes have funded and distributed reflections from classmates. These books are printed and bound simply but can serve the same purpose of generating enthusiasm if they are mailed well in advance of the Reunion.
