Ford School students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends gathered in cities around the globe on July 9 to celebrate the fifth annual Worldwide Ford School Spirit Day. First held in 2011, the Ford School encourages Fordies to celebrate their school and honor the legacy of President Ford by attending one of the many alumni-led gatherings, catching up with old friends, networking, and sharing the latest school news.
With over 300 advanced RSVPs, Spirit Day has continued to grow. In 2015, newly-minted alumni and veteran organizers hosted celebrations in Ann Arbor, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Lansing, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Tokyo, and Washington, DC. We also received photos from gatherings in Albany, New York; Marquette, Michigan; Beijing, China; and Manila, Phillippines.
