FOR OUR ALUMNI
Even though our alumni are spread across the globe, we share a special bond that remains long after your Sullins days are over. Our traditions and ongoing success reﬂect in large part the dedication and commitment of our past students and their families. Every graduate and former student is part of the Sullins alumni community, and there are many ways to stay connected with the School, faculty, staff, and friends. Our growing alumni program is designed to serve as a bridge between Sullins alums and the School.
Check out our Facebook page and Instagram feed to stay connected with each other and with Sullins. We’ll keep you informed on the latest school news and happenings.
First used for assemblies and other gatherings in Martin Hall at Sullins College in the late 1960s through 1970s, the red chairs were later used at Sullins Academy both in Martin Hall and at our current newer campus in Bristol, Virginia. A couple hundred of the chairs will forever remain in the Martin Hall ballroom at Sullins College, and we are also keeping a small collection at Sullins Academy.
Please note that while the chairs are in relatively excellent shape, some expected wear & tear and scratching is present. Chairs are sold as-is, and all sales are final.
We are selling the chairs for $100 each. The fair market value of each chair is $40. The difference between the amount paid and the fair market value is $60 and is considered a tax-deductible charitable contribution to Sullins Academy, a (501)(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Help organize a class reunion and/or special gatherings both on and off campus for classmates, parents of alumni, and past faculty. If you are interested in planning a gathering, please contact Susan Ruble.
Alumni are always invited to return to Sullins and serve in a variety of ways, including volunteering at special events, helping with alumni outreach, speaking to current students, or serving on a school committee. We welcome the contributions of our alumni and celebrate their participation in the life of the school.

We ask our alumni to make a donation to the Annual Fund in honor of a favorite faculty member (or even your parents) as a way of saying “thanks for being part of who I am today”! By giving back to Sullins, you sustain a 50 year legacy of support for our great school.
