We recognize those classes ending in 2’s and 7’s who have reached the milestone of their 5th through 50th year since graduation. We invite you to join in the Reunion Gift Challenge by giving back to honor Padua’s 60th anniversary year and your reunion. The class with the highest participation and the class with the most dollars raised by May 31st will have their class years engraved on the Reunion Gift Challenge plaque, and be presented with the silver Challenge Cup during the Reunion. As of February 28th, the Class of 1982 is in the lead for the most dollars raised and the Class of 1992 has the highest participation.

Please help your class win one of these honors by making your reunion gift today.
