"Alumni Night" a success!
The re-vamped DeSales Alumni Association hosted 103 alumni on Friday evening, December 7. All DeSales alumni were invited to an Alumni Association reception prior to the DeSales varsity basketball game vs. Christian Academy.
Alumni from the early 1960s through the Class of 2018 reconnected with classmates and fellow alumni. Additionally, Charlie Tewell '80, Alumni Association Chair, introduced himself and informed the attendees of the re-organization. Charlie also introduced Travis Wagoner, our new Associate Director of Alumni Relations. DeSales President Dr. Rick Blackwell also shared with the group the great news from around campus.
About the Alumni Association
The Alumni Association is a brotherhood of DeSales men whose primary purpose is to support the mission of DeSales High School.
In 2018, a decision was made to transform the DeSales Alumni Association in a significant way. Specifically, the Alumni is no longer a non-profit entity separate from the school. Instead, it operates as a board of the school.
Charlie Tewell, Class of 1980, is chairman of the revamped Alumni Association Board. He provides a look at the new Alumni Association and introduces himself in a letter he wrote to all DeSales alumni. You can read it here.
Alumni are encouraged to participate in the life of DeSales through various school activities and fundraisers throughout the year.
