Our third annual Raikes School Alumni Reunion was held Friday and Saturday, September 28 and 29. Friday evening featured a reception held at the Ironhorse Event Room in Lincoln’s Haymarket. Saturday morning, alumni spent time connecting with current Raikes School students and were given tours of the Kauffman Center. There have been several updates to the building over the past few years! 

Over 45 people attended the weekend’s activities, including a few from our 5-year and 10-year reunion classes in cohorts 2004 and 2009Lori McCarthy, Danielle Nelson, Katie Woolf, and Emily West. Check out the slideshow shown at the Friday evening reception featuring photos from our highlighted classes, Raikes School and JDE alumni, and updates about the Raikes School.

We plan to hold a similar reunion in fall 2019 over Nebraska’s homecoming weekend. We will specifically recognize cohorts 2000, 2005 and 2010 (graduating classes of 2004, 2009 and 2014). More details will be sent in the summer 2019 alumni newsletter and we hope to have many of you attend!
