Fifty year anniversaries have long occupied a special place in society. Generally referred to as "Golden Anniversaries," they are celebrated by institutions, businesses and individuals. They commemorate loyalty, perseverance, and often a special, lasting bond between people.
When college and university alumni reunite to celebrate 50 years as graduates, it is indeed a rare and special occasion. We honor our 50-year graduates, those celebrating their Golden Anniversary as Rockhurst alumni, by induction into the Golden Hawks Society. Each 50-year class is inducted into the society at a special ceremony for graduates and the widows of deceased graduates, and as part of their 50-year reunion celebration.
This year's Golden Hawks class is the Class of 1963. Their 50th reunion will take place as part of Family & Alumni Weekend
, September 27-29, 2013.
Class of 1961 Golden Hawks
