The Campbell, in Grand Central Terminal, New York was the venue for the latest OS gathering organised by the Development Team on Monday 18th November. It is over 10 years since the Stonyhurst Development team last travelled to America but it was pleasing to see how strong the transatlantic ties remain. Ten OS living in and around New York City joined Stephen Withnell and Suzanne Wheeler (Development Manager) whilst others across America expressed their regret that they were unable to attend but indicated how much they would like to attend future events should we venture away from New York.
In a relaxed and informal setting our OS renewed links and made new connections. Once again OS were quick to pay tribute to the College, stressing how important it had been to their development both whilst at school and continuing on into the present day. Interestingly we discovered that OS continue to have a strong presence at the UN in New York, with three of our number currently working there, whilst the others are pursuing careers in finance, insurance and recruitment. New York may be their home now but Stonyhurst remains at their very heart.
There will be another reception on the 16th June 2020, we hope to see you there!
