PCD kicked off the centennial celebrations with a virtual party on January 9, 2023 at 7:23pm (1/9/23 and 19:23, both representing the year PCD was founded). PCD community members from around the world learned more about the next 18 months of centennial celebrations, heard members of our community share some of their PCD memories, and celebrated the start of the centennial with a virtual toast!

If you missed the kick-off, check out the full video here, and the congratulatory messages are shared here. Be sure to keep an eye on this page for updates about Centennial Celebrations and upcoming special events.
 

Happy Birthday Messages

PCD's Oral History

Given the technological changes over the past five decades, we wondered if we could do a large, comprehensive, and accessible History of PCD project. 
 
The concept of an oral and video history evolved, with the idea that interviewing alumni and faculty could develop into a larger picture. 
 
Could the history of certain sports, of the Roundtable, of the PCD Players, and other niche topics contribute to the comprehensive nature of this project? The first trial interviews begat other topics. Could we develop a history of senior projects? Of Field Day? Could we look at alumni grouped by careers like medicine, law enforcement, education, or the arts? Could we look at the many PCD alumni who are also graduates of our new partner, Henry Barnard School? Two early interviewees spoke of their athletic experience and pointed to one football game – the Knights’ come-from-behind victory over Moses Brown on Chowder Day, 1982 – as a topic that could stand alone and yet still represent the true “Play the Game” spirit of the school.
 
From the start, we agreed early on that current students could and should be involved in this process. So many skills to be acquired and shared! 
 
We also hoped that the results could be viewable online and during the weekend of the Centennial Gala in 2024. 
 
Are you excited by this possibility? Would you like to be interviewed or to interview classmates and teammates? Please contact Arnold Kee at akee@achievementfactors.com or Rod Eaton at jreaton3@gmail.com.

Knights of Distinction 

Knights of Distinction embody the core values of our school and move them forward in ways that positively impact an ever-changing world. Extraordinary in diverse fields, honorees have uplifted and inspired others and brought honor and pride to Providence Country Day and Henry Barnard.

We celebrate honorees for their professional or academic achievement, leadership, teamwork, citizenship, and public responsibility. These individuals who “Played the Game” with excellence, grace, and character have illuminated and preserved our rich history and enduring values, as well as looked forward in aspirational and innovative ways.
