Approximately 400 alumni and school friends gathered for the annual alumni luncheon on Wednesday to reconnect with classmates and former teachers, recall their days as boys at PDS, and celebrate Fred Smith ‘56, Founder, Chairman and CEO of FedEx, as he was presented the school’s Distinguished Alumnus Award.
“What a happy and exciting day in the life of PDS,” says Headmaster Lee Burns. “To see so many alumni back on campus thrilled us, and we were so delighted in particular to honor Mr. Smith for his remarkable accomplishments and inspirational man he is.”
Mr. Smith spent part of the morning meeting boys and teachers as he visited classrooms and toured the school. “Our boys were so excited to see and meet him, and our 6th graders in the luncheon had the opportunity to hear him talk about challenges and opportunities facing our country in today’s global community,” says Burns.
The 2009 Alumni Luncheon was held on April 23rd in the Fellowship Hall at PDS.
In attendance were 150 alumni classes dating all the way back to the founding of the school.
