Class of 1989

Celebrate Your 25-Year Reunion

Though the classrooms, study sessions, and exams that once filled your days are now just memories, the friendships that formed during those years have remained, strengthened by those youthful challenges and enriched by the wisdom that can only come from experience.

1989 was quite a year for Booth, with Harry Davis and Luis Miranda leading the first GSB Winter Retreat.
