Class of ‘59 Reunion Committee

The Class of ‘59 Reunion Team has truly set the gold standard for reunion committees. For many years, they have shown immense pride, enthusiasm and dedication to maintaining connections with their UNB classmates. With representation from every faculty, the team has made extraordinary efforts to reach every classmate and has created reunion experiences with broad appeal. 

Since celebrating their 20th reunion in 1979, they have organized a reunion every five years, and are already thinking ahead to their 60th in 2019. Driven to make these events a success, they have consistently taken the initiative upon themselves to plan committee meetings, organize activities, reach out to classmates and assist in the promotion of Homecoming events.

This group was also the driving force behind the creation of the UNB Research Showcase. What began as an opportunity for members of their class to learn about faculty research at UNB has now become part of the Homecoming program for all alumni to enjoy.

The Class of ‘59 Reunion Committee has gone above and beyond to ensure their reunions are well attended - not only to keep in contact with old friends, but also to maintain affection for their alma mater and increase awareness of the fantastic changes at UNB.
