Tandem has the most amazing alums - always willing to give back. 6th grade PE students today got a surprise when two alums came to their class to talk and join them in some fun and games. 拉特雷尔·温基(TFS '18, who graduated from VCU) and Javon Carter (TFS '17, who graduated from VA State and coaches several Tandem students through Boys and Girls Club) came to Tandem today to visit former teachers and coaches, 彼此之间, and ended up in the gym mentoring 6th graders in PE class through words and actions. Both alums are looking into graduate counseling and social work programs in order to pursue working with young people.
The entire Tandem community enjoyed celebrating the Class of 1973 (our first official graduating class) for their 50th reunion weekend May 5-6. 在周五, they joined the 十大网赌靠谱网址平台 for Community Time, sharing stories of their times at Tandem and what they've been doing since graduation. They also spent some time talking to students afterwards. Tandem co-founder John Howard and his wife Elizabeth were on hand to visit with their first grads as well. 那天下午晚些时候, the Class of 1973 welcomed the Classes of 1974 and 1975 to join them in a reception in the Blue Room. They even recreated their graduation photo. After that, they headed into town to enjoy dinner together at The Mill Room at Boar's Head.
Check out a few more photos of their time on campus 在这里. We always look forward to having our alums back on campus! 祝贺你们，1973届的毕业生们!
We're very sad to report that former Tandem social studies teacher Barbara McCallum, who taught at Tandem from 1987-1991, 已经去世了. 这是一个 链接到芭芭拉的讣告, which was thoughtfully shared by her daughter Ashley. Barbara loved teaching and being part of the Tandem family. Please join us in holding Barbara's family in the Light.
