Alumnae Reunion Weekend & May Day 2013

In a traditional showcase for spring millinery, more than 300 Brenau Women’s College and Brenau Academy alumnae plus families and friends converged on the Brenau University campus Friday through Sunday, April 12-14, the annual day of class reunions and the “May Day” celebration for current students.

Grand Plan

A year ago on these pages we announced Brenau’s grand plan to raise $1.5 million to replace worn-out, unserviceable pianos on campus. Today we can say that the fundraising continues, but that the first piano, Number 481, a handmade Steinway & Son’s Model D Concert Grand, arrived on campus Dec. 4 and now resides in Pearce Auditorium. President Ed Schrader announced the instrument’s imminent arrival at a surprise ceremony during the fall trustees’ dinner when he revealed that it would be named for former Executive Vice President Wayne Dempsey, who retired at the end of 2012.
