Alumni Programs

Foster-Scholz Club

The Foster-Scholz Club was formed during the late sixties to provide an informal social group providing events for early Reed alumni in the local area. Its purposes included:

  1. to provide older alumni opportunities to maintain and renew ties to the college as it has evolved;
  2. to provide a setting for fellowship among older alumni;
  3. to create a group that would honor the 50th and other early reunion classes.

The club was named for the first two presidents of the college and has included alumni from the beginning of Reed’s history (class of 1915) through the most recent 40th reunion class, as well as a small group of honorary members.

The Foster-Scholz Club has traditionally met about four times a year. Programs have included speakers, usually from the college (faculty, students, or staff); workshops; and occasionally, off-campus outings.

The last event of the year is traditionally the annual luncheon, held during Reunions in June. This luncheon honors the 50th reunion class as special guests; also, the distinguished service award is given to one or more club members who have made contributions to the community and/or college. The history of the award and a full list of past recipients is available from the Office of the President.
