The vibrance of the Cathedral High School alumni community was on display at the 38th Annual All-Classes Reunion at the Tirrell Room of Quincy on Sunday, September 22.
More than 150 alumni and spouses gathered to celebrate milestone anniversaries, reminisce, and strengthen bonds forged years ago in the halls of the South End campus.
Dozens of class years were represented at the event, but the class of 1969 celebrating their 50th reunion had by far the strongest presence. President of the CHS Alumni Association, Roger Scott ’64, welcomed the alumni, the 50th reunion class, and highlighted one notable alumnus from the Class of 1949, Jack Comer, celebrating the 70th anniversary of his graduation from Cathedral High School.
Interim Head of School, Paul Chisholm, and Principal Nampeera Lugira, also gave a warm welcome and helped alumni connect their legacy to the students studying today in the same hallways at Cathedral.
Roger Scott shared to applause that the alumni association had just donated $1,000 tuition scholarships for five current CHS students. Tuition at CHS covers less than 20 percent of the school’s cost to provide a high-quality education; philanthropy-based assistance such as scholarships like these helps the school provide a minimum of $13,000 in philanthropy-based assistance to every single student.
The lively 39th annual event organized by the CHS Alumni Association included dinner, dancing, and an ice cream social to cap it off.
