Join fellow SLUH alumni at Claver House near St. Matthew the Apostle Catholic Church in the Ville neighborhood. We are hoping to start the day with Mass at Claver House at 8 a.m. and will conclude the service work around 11:30 a.m. Volunteers are encouraged to bring yard/lawn equipment to help with the clean up. For more information, please contact Hap Burke at email@example.com
We need your help with outreach for our Days of Giving and St. Louis U. High Day Celebration! As indicated in the Board meeting, a gathering in the Commons seems unlikely given occupancy restrictions. Sign-up below and let us know you're willing to help with outreach to ensure "SLUH Meets the Need" for our families this year.
THANKS TO THOSE WHO ATTENDED THE MAY MEETING
The annual end-of-the-school-year Appreciation Dinner was held on May 12, as a virtual "happy hour" rather than a dinner.
It was the final meeting hosted by Mark Berns '93. Our thanks to Mark for his work as an officer over the past four years. Mark passed the gavel to Dick Mehan, Jr. '70 who will now serve his term as President of the Alumni Board. Mark announced that Brian Walsh '89 will be replacing him as the newest officer of the Alumni Board.
Our guest speaker was graduating senior Ethan Joly '20. Ethan spoke of his time at SLUH, and the challenges of graduating during a pandemic. You can view a video of Ethan's remarks by clicking here.
To close out the meeting, Dick Mehan reviewed the upcoming calendar of alumni events, which is listed below:
