March 5, 2013 - On February 20th, St. Benedict C.S.S. hosted an ‘Alumni vs. Student’ Basketball Game in conjunction with the St. Benedict Alumni Association to raise awareness and funds for an upcoming Reunion event in 2015. The basketball event was also a way to celebrate the success of past graduates and the rich 20 year history of the school. The school’s very first reunion will commemorate the first 20 years of graduates from its initial graduating class of 1999/2000, to those graduating in 2010.

The proceeds of this buyout event for the students went to the St. Benedict Alumni Association, who is working with the school and various individuals throughout the community, to organize a number of fundraising events over the next few years in anticipation of the upcoming reunion. With a final score of 58 to 36, fans were on the edge of their seats from start to finish. After the game, the alumni took time to speak with the current generation of students and staff about their experiences at St. Benedict C.S.S., their ambitions after graduating, and their chosen career paths and goals.

The mission of the St. Benedict Alumni Association is to promote a strong relationship between alumni and the school, to promote a sense of pride among alumni and current students, as well as establish and nurture mutually beneficial relationships with other alumni, students, and the community.

They are working diligently on many upcoming events and are looking for volunteers, donations, and sponsors. If you wish to participate, “Like” them on Facebook at Facebook.com/stbenedictcssalumni or e-mail st.benedict.reunion@hotmail.com.
