Class of 1960 Honored

The College of Law honored members of the 50-year reunion class this spring with a special Class of 1960 dinner and commemorative medal presentation at commencement. Representing their class in the commencement march were Theodore C. Carlstrom JD'60; Gary E. Lockwood BA'57, JD'60; and Lewis B. Hampton BA'55, JD'60.

"The Class of 1960 is a wonderful example of the caliber of attorneys the College of Law produces," said College of Law Dean Symeon C. Symeonides, who presented a special 50-year commemorative medal to the class representatives. "We are proud of what these men and women have accomplished throughout their long and distinguished legal careers."

The night before commencement, Carlstrom, Lockwood and Hampton were joined by several other members of the Class of 1960 and their spouses at a dinner celebrating their 50-year reunion. Held at Illahe Country Club in Salem, the dinner provided a great opportunity for the classmates to reconnect with old friends.

The College of Law plans to include members of each 50-year reunion class in future commencement ceremonies and events. Next May, members of the class of 1961 will be invited to return to their alma mater for a special reunion event.

"Carlstrom came up with the idea of including the 50-year reunion class in commencement as a way of connecting the classes through the years and celebrating the common ties between the most recent graduating class and those that made their way before them," Symeonides said. "We thought it a fitting tribute to both our esteemed 50-year members and a nod to the bright future that lies ahead for our graduating students."
