In Honor of

polly Walsh

We gratefully honor the life and legacy of Pauline "Polly" Walsh, founder of the Alumni Mothers Club who served as the organization's first president (1977-78). Polly was a passionate, tireless SLUH volunteer who continued attending school events until her passing, at age 94.

She was the wife of John '41 (dec'd), mother of John '75 and Maureen, and grandmother of Peter Herrmann '20.

Be a part of a group of fabulous women who all share a great love for their sons and St. Louis University High. Membership registration is open for anyone who had a son graduate from the "U. High."

The Alumni Mothers’ Club (AMC) is a wonderful way to stay connected to the many moms you met while your son attended SLUH and to start new friendships. We are an active, vibrant, fun-loving group that continues the spirit of service and has deep roots within the SLUH community.
