Hoops, There it Was!

In early March, the classes of 2009-2019 battled it out during MICDS Madness, our annual young alumni virtual giving challenge. Eleven classes competed for the Championship, and this year’s competition was wild and windy. Volunteer class reps consulted their playbooks and pulled out all the stops in an effort to lead their class to victory. When the dust settled, the mighty class of 2009 claimed the top spota repeat win in their final year in the competition! Texting, emailing, smiling and dialing right up until the midnight deadline, they were determined to win at the annual MICDS Big Dance.

And, teamwork really does make the dream work: even though they were competing against each other, our 2009-2019 young alums came together to make 120 gifts to the School.

Madness is a fun-spirited challenge that gives our young alumni the opportunity to give back while also reflecting on their own experiences at the School and the impact it has had on their lives. Their generosity supports the MICDS Fund, and a good number of gifts were made in honor or in memory of beloved faculty and classmates.

Massive appreciation to our loyal group of alumni Madness Class Reps who tirelessly engaged with their classmates to encourage participation. We are extremely grateful to our volunteers, and Madness wouldn’t be nearly as successful without you! Our students and faculty, who are the direct beneficiaries of your support, thank you.
