Schreiner Recall is April 15-17; dining hall closed Saturday 4/16

2011 Recall, Schreiner University’s annual homecoming weekend, will take place Friday-Sunday, April 15-17 on the Schreiner campus. Recall is a chance for alumni and former students to revisit the campus, catch up with old friends and make some new ones. The Recall weekend is sponsored by the Schreiner Former Students Association.

Among the weekend events are a golf tournament the Tribute to Schreiner Legends Banquet, Military Breakfast and the fourth annual Recall parade, with the theme, “Hats Off to Schreiner.” Twenty-five-year grads from 1986 will be honored during the event, as will decade anniversary graduates and those who graduated 50 or more years ago. This year is the 50th anniversary for those who graduated in 1961 and a number of graduates from 1951 are expected to attend as well.

The public is invited to the parade, which will start at 10 a.m., Saturday, April 16, and circle the campus on Acorn Boulevard. Participants, including Schreiner faculty and staff, student organizations and local alumni, will be competing for prizes in keeping with the parade theme.

The Schreiner Legends Banquet will honor new Distinguished Alumnus Royce Faulkner ’49.  Also to be honored are Rogers Douglas ’52 and Stephanie Gamble ’90, as new members of the Athletic Hall of Honor, and Jerry E. (Gene) Marshall ’52, who will receive the Schreiner Former Students Association Distinguished Service Award.

“We encourage any former student regardless of class year to attend Recall,” said Paul Camfield, associate director of Alumni Relations. “It is a special time for us to welcome them back to campus.”

The Schreiner University dining hall will be closed to the public on Saturday, April 16, but will reopen for brunch on Sunday, April 17.
