Golden Circle

Members of the Classes of 1965-67 at the Golden Circle Celebration. Golden Circle is an honorary group comprised of all classes who have celebrated their 50th reunions. In June, the members of the graduating classes of 1965-67 were honored as new and returning inductees. Clad in gold robes, Golden Circle members crossed the Daley Bridge with the graduating class and sat in the VIP section. During the ceremony, Golden Circle members were invited to stand and be recognized. Once inducted into the Golden Circle, members have an open invitation to return every year to welcome new inductees and to march during graduation, reminding our current families and all others in attendance that PCDS enjoys a truly rich history.

Each year, during the Upper School Awards Assembly, one member of the senior class is given an award in memory of a special alumnus. The Victor D. Feeney Award is bestowed upon a student who exudes well roundedness, a strong work ethic and an affable demeanor. Victor D. Feeney ’67 distinguished himself by his commitment to school life. After graduating from PCDS, Victor received his B.A. degree from Princeton and his JD degree from the University of Denver. Throughout his young life, Victor displayed a contagious enthusiasm for living and a true love for academics and sports and his fellow man. Victor died in 1980 after a battle with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. This year’s Victor D. Feeney Awardee, Emma Sheridan ’17, had the opportunity to meet many of Victor’s classmates as they were celebrating their Golden Circle induction the evening of Upper School graduation.
