A group of fourteen alumni from the early years of Anatolia in Harilaou revived the Alumni Association in 1929 with the help of older alumni from Merzifon. Its first President was Bandrig H. Benlian, an 1928 alumnus.
At a time when alumni were scattered in Athens and abroad, maintaining ties seemed difficult. Benlian, however, firmly believed in the power of connection. He envisioned an Alumni Association that would serve as a bridge, bringing together old classmates and nurturing their love for their alma mater.
The Alumni Association worked vigorously contributing to the school by providing scholarships to orphaned students and organizing conferences and social events, as well as supporting the construction of a new building in the new facilities.
