The Classes of 1970 from Union Catholic Girls High School and Union Catholic Boys High School were to have celebrated their 50th Graduation Anniversary in May. The in-person event was postponed, but the Class of 1970 spirit and support for UC never waned. They have continued to give generously to the new Class of 1970 Endowed Scholarship. Equally impressive are the number of written messages and video congratulations sent from the 1970 UC alumni to the graduates of the Class of 2020. Those greetings were incorporated into the official UC Class of 2020 Graduation pre-party video for all to see and hear. Congratulations UC Class of 1970 on 50 years!
Maryann Schiller Degnan has the ball rolling for the Class of 1980 reunion. The committee has a meeting planned in the next few weeks, and will be contacting everyone shortly thereafter. They intend to send a survey, so they are requesting that everyone email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: Name (including maiden name), Email, Home address, Cell. Also, please visit the new Facebook page: Union Catholic Class of 1980 Reunion https://www.facebook.com/groups/463875767732771/
The committee (Colleen Yewaisis Mahr, Jaimie Schnitzer Westley, Kelly Waters, Geri Ricciani Beltran, Joellen Piasecki Pace and Joe Lettieri) is developing their plan.
To be able to celebrate your 25th Graduation Anniversary is a special occasion, and the members of the Class of 1994 who came back to their alma mater to mark 25 years truly had a special time. As soon as they entered the front door at UC, they were hugging each other as if they had not been together since 1994 - and in many cases that was accurate! No worries, they were instantly reunited and sharing life stories. The current UC Student Ambassadors who were on hand to conduct building tours were touched by the camaraderie, and vowed NOT to lose touch once they graduate. The 1994 alumni visited science classrooms, lounged in the cafeteria, and posed for photos on the stage in the auditorium. The party continued with food and drink in the library. Some members of the Class of 1994 had been together through elementary school and high school; such a strong bond. The class was happy to see a "surprise" guest at the reunion, Mr Bruce Zehnle. A special thanks to Lauren Casa who helped coordinate this milestone event and to track down “missing” classmates.
Being home for Thanksgiving meant that members of the Class of 2014 could get together and give thanks for their UC friendships. Classmates gathered at the Stagehouse Tavern in Mountainside on November 29, 2019 for a fun “pub meet-up.”
