Mini-Reunion of Classes 1956-1969 – May 24-26, 2014

The Valley was home to 20% of the 1960s alumni over Memorial Day weekend, with all but two classes represented on the ranch. Attendees packed a number of activities into two-and-a-half days including: a question & answer session with SB committee officers, President David Neidorf, Dean Amity Wilczek and Farmer Adam Nyborg DS’97; a guided tour of the Bufo Exul habitat at Deep Springs Lake; BBQ dinner at the Boarding House; a special Sunday evening Public Speaking for alumni participants; a discussion of how a Deep Springs education impacted career and life decisions; tours of the ranch; and review of the DS photographic archives from the era. Of course, attendees also had plenty of free time to simply re-connect with each other and make new friendships while lingering in the warm May sunshine of the high desert. We’re pleased to have had so many engaged alumni present. Their excitement for Deep Springs even after 40 years was palpable and reassuring.
