Terriers made up for lost time when they returned to Wofford College in October for a Homecoming that held both tradition and opportunities to innovate. Reunions combined two classes, so those who missed out on their reunion during 2020 because of the pandemic joined with those scheduled for reunions in 2021 for twice the fun. There was also an all-alumni band party at Main Building that brought in several thousand.

The Alumni Association honored five individuals for their leadership and service.

Bryan Blair ’07 of Pullman, Wash., deputy director of athletics and chief operating officer in the athletics department at Washington State University, was awarded the Pride of Wofford Award. His parents, Dannie and Woodrow Blair of Bennettsville, S.C., accepted the award on his behalf.

Rex Maynard ’69 of Belton, S.C., owner of Maynard’s Home Furnishings, was given the Charles H. Gray ’72 Distinguished Service Award.

The Rising Star awards were given to Margaret Deans Fawcett Grantz ’13 of Columbia, S.C., a co-founder and director of development for a nonprofit, and Caitlynn Myer ’18 of Spartanburg, a Limestone University professor and program coordinator.

David Britt ’77 of Spartanburg, a vice president for Tindall Corp. and a Spartanburg County councilman, was recognized with the Distinguished Citizen Award.

Homecoming 2021 also included football, tailgating and informal gatherings.
