To stay connected and to collect fresh perspectives on the Waynflete experience, we invite alums to write “Letters Home,” in which they report what they have been up to since graduation and describe the role their Waynflete experiences have played in the journey.  If you are an alum with a story to tell, we’d love to hear it.  Please email Dean of Students Cathie Connors at cconnors@waynflete.org. You can either write the story or tell us what you have been up to and we will write the story.  We are excited about staying in touch.
