On May 19th, Knights gathered at the 6th annual alumni celebration.Former SCA presidents, school administration and the alumni office collaborated to host a meaningful and a purposeful gathering. The alumni lead group discussions divided by regions and majors to welcome and connect with our newest alumni, the class of 2017.Food and fun followed with the annual alumni verses faculty and students soccer match.
The alumni soccer game is a great tradition for this day and truly added spirit and fun for all who played and watched. There were about 20 alumni returning to play in a split squad game which also included some staff members. Coach Dellos had this to say, "Although we had a great time playing, what I enjoyed the most about the alumni game was reconnecting with players that I had coached over the years and hearing how they are doing in life now. It was great to see their smiles and to see their excitement and passion for the game even as young adults. The end of the year is always fun for me because I enjoyed seeing alum come back to play and reminisce about Knight soccer days."
In talking with other alumni, the enthusiasm generated from this day may inspire more alumni events in the future. By ensuring the alumni are part of the GSIS family, creates a strong bond for the community that will grow well into the future!
