Legacy students and their families enjoyed a special breakfast event in November honoring their commitment to USM.
University School has a strong legacy family tradition, which we celebrate each year at the legacy family breakfast in November. Currently, there are 162 USM students who have a family legacy of attending USM, meaning one or more of their parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents attended the school or one of its predecessor schools.
Members of the Slocum family, whose connections with the school go back five generations, attended the event along with many others. “We were pleasantly surprised when we found out that our granddaughters would be attending USM,” said Thomas Slocum ’72. “The surroundings have changed from when I attended, but we’re happy with the school.” Added Andrew Slocum ’02, “Upper School has changed a lot, and Lower School has too, but the bones are the same. It feels great to walk around here; it brings back a lot of good memories.”
