WPS of Connecticut Hosts Historic Virtual Founders Day
The West Point Society of Connecticut made history by hosting the first-ever virtual Founders Day on April 4. Instead of canceling or postponing their celebration, these innovative grads and guests got together online for an otherwise “traditional” Founders Day, complete with a toast, a video message from Superintendent LTG Darryl Williams ’83, remarks by USMA speaker COL Greg Boylan ’94, greetings from the oldest and youngest graduates present, and finishing up by singing the Alma Mater.
Club President Scott Anders ’77 even donned black tie attire for his role as emcee. This creative virtual event was the first of its kind since the suspension of public events and travel during March and April, a time when West Point grads worldwide usually gather to mark the 1802 establishment of the Academy at their local Founders Day celebrations.
