#ZephyrsPride! St. Mary Catholic Schools Alumni

St. Mary Catholic High School has proud legacy of excellence in academics, success in athletics and strength in faith and service. Whether you graduated in 1947 or 2018, you are an important part of our alumni community!

Alumni Awards

The St. Mary Catholic Schools family feels it is important to recognize outstanding accomplishments of our graduates as well as their contributions to their communities. For that purpose, we have established several recognitions for SMCS alumni.

  • Outstanding Catholic Christian Service Award honors an alumnus who has demonstrated faithful service to the Lord in vocational ministry, Christian service or a church leadership position, and through his or her continued support of St. Mary Catholic High School. The nominee exhibits a self-sacrificing way of life by going beyond expectations in service to others.
  • The Distinguished Service Award recognizes an alumnus who has given his or her time, energy and resources to enhance the well-being of St. Mary Catholic High School and the community. He or she exhibits a high degree of leadership, character and integrity. This person’s loyalty and service support SMCHS and the community in moving into the future.
  • The Alumni Achievement Award is presented to an alumnus who displayed strong leadership while a student at SMCHS, who has achieved distinction in his/her community and/or field of expertise, who continues to support SMCHS and/or Catholic education, and who lives out Christian values. The nominee must have graduated from St. Mary Catholic High School at least ten years ago.

Do you know an alumni who has the qualifications to receive one of these awards?

Athletic Hall of Fame

The SMCS Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 1983 to capitalize on the rich tradition of St. Mary Catholic School. Members are mostly alumni of SMCHS, but also include former coaches and honorary alumni. It is wonderful that 30 years later, the Zephyr tradition continues to thrive through the SMCS Athletic Hall of Fame!

The nomination for induction into the Athletic Hall of Fame requires that the individual or team brought recognition to the high school through athletic accomplishments, is currently respected in his/her/their community and models Christian values. The nominee(s) must have graduated from St. Mary Catholic High School at least ten years ago.
