Come Back lumberjacks 2021
Lumberjacks came back to Oakwood for the annual Homecoming Weekend festivities. The annual celebration included the 7th annual Come Back Lumberjacks event presented by Jessup Wealth Management, hosted by the Oakwood Schools Foundation on Friday, Oct. 1 at the Dayton Country Club. More than 200 alumni and community members attended to catch up and learn more about OSF’s grants, scholarships, and programs.
This year’s event was made extra special with the public announcement of the Foundation’s $8.8 million campaign to enhance and upgrade the arts at Oakwood Schools.
“Come Back Lumberjacks is a fantastic event that brings community and alumni together to celebrate Oakwood. We were very excited to be able to host this event in person again this year, and to kick off the Flourish campaign for the arts,” Come Back Lumberjacks Co-Chair Yusaku Kawai said.
A special thank you to all of the 2021 Comeback Lumberjack event sponsors for helping to make this event possible. The weekend's festivities continued Saturday morning as Oakwood alumni had the opportunity to tour Oakwood Junior High and Oakwood High School and Harman School. OHS Principal Dr. Paul Waller kicked off the morning tour at OJH and OHS. Members of the Student Alumni Ambassador group led visitors through the buildings. Stops on the tour included the Worth Engineering Lab, a live performance by students Natalia and Isabel Rubin-Alvarez, and several presentations from Oakwood teachers.
Oakwood Schools Foundation and Oakwood Alumni Association are already looking forward to next year’s events.
