On Thursday, May 26, the Class of 2022 gathered for the annual Alumni-Senior Breakfast. For the first time, they assembled on the Class of 2007 Terrace in the Griffith Headmaster’s House. They were joined by members of the Alumni Board as well as Alumni Trustees. Highlighting the family that is St. Sebastian’s, the Class of 2022 welcomed six alumni parents who have sons in the graduating class: Joe Cusack ’88, father of Griffin; Mike Grier ’93, father of Jayden; Marty Kane ’84, father of Marty; Matt Noone ’86, father of Matt; Mike Maguire ‘91, father of Aidan; and Todd Proia ’91, father of Thomas.
Board of Trustees President, Jim Elcock ’77, P'08 addressed the class and encouraged them to take part in and enjoy the traditions that define the St. Sebastian’s experience going forward and to hold close the relationships they have made here. Mr. Elcock also presented each of the graduates with a book, The Lincoln Highway, which tells the tale of four young men on an adventure across the country. Alumni Board President, Peter Galligan ’74, shared his family’s longstanding relationship with St. Sebastian’s. The five Galligan brothers account for a combined 250+ years of connections to the School. Peter then announced the four 2022 Class Agents elected by their peers: Jack Flynn, Brendan Melley, Mark Newell, and Thomas Scordino. The Class Agents are charged with keeping the class close to each other and close to St. Sebastian’s.
Headmaster Burke encouraged the seniors to focus on the three S’s…Slow down and take it all in, Savor the final days together, and Say the things that need to be said to your classmates and teachers who made your time at St. Sebastian’s what it was. Congratulations to the Class of 2022 as you embark on an exciting final week at your School!
