The evening of Friday, June 2 kicked off numerous special events for alumni from milestone class years, including those Dwight School and ESB alumni celebrating their 50th reunion. On Saturday, June 3, Richard “Dick” Totten Button ESB ’47 and Susan Law Dake D ’67 were honored with the 2017 D-E Distinguished Alumni Award (DAA). The DAA was established in 1997 to pay special tribute to alumni and is presented for exemplary professional and/or volunteer accomplishments. It honors alumni whose achievements deserve special recognition by the school and by fellow graduates.
The annual Induction Ceremony for the D-E Athletic Hall of Fame (AHF) also took place on June 3. The School’s AHF was established in 1996 to honor those individuals who have achieved a high level of success during their careers as student athletes and coaches, or through significant contributions to the School’s athletic program. Its purpose is to perpetuate the memory of those who have brought distinction and excellence to the Dwight School, the Englewood School for Boys, and the Dwight-Englewood School. Those inducted into the AHF this year included Anne Meserole Cookman D ’32 (posthumous), Mike Vessa ’77, and the 1965 and 1966 ESB Varsity Soccer Teams.
