Hugs and tears, remembrances of years past and a sense of pride in their alma mater were a few of the themes during Lander University's 2010 Alumni Reunion Weekend, which began on Friday, Sept. 24, with a 50th reunion dinner at Lander on the Square, followed by an alumni happy hour at T.W. Boons, both in Uptown Greenwood. On Saturday, Sept. 25, events focused on 60th-, 50th-, 40th- and 30th-year reunions for the classes of 1950, 1960, 1970 and 1980. Several alums from various graduating classes were also in attendance, including a 101-year-old alumna from the Class of 1930, Virginia Taylor Rushton. Rushton was accompanying her daughter Virginia Lynne Rushton Ouzts, who was on campus celebrating her own 50th reunion with fellow Class of 1960 alums.
