The Northeast Catholic Alumni Association is always looking for people to step up to carry on the legacy of the Falcon men before us by becoming a representative of your class on the Alumni Board of Governors.
The Northeast Catholic Alumni Association was created in 1929. As stated in our history, which can be found on our website, “…The object of this Association shall be to form a more perfect brotherhood, to create fraternalism and good fellowship among the graduates, clergy, and supporters of the Northeast Catholic High School, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With this in mind, the Association will remain an active force in keeping the ideals and traditions of Northeast Catholic High School alive. Tenui Nec Dimittam. We have taken hold and will not let go. One of our major aims, as it has been for the past fifty plus years, will be the support of Catholic education.”
Being a class representative on the Alumni Board of Governors is a fulfilling experience. As Salesian Gentlemen, one of our purposes in life is service to others. Being a ‘class rep’ affords us the opportunity to serve our fellow Falcons by bringing us together in a single voice.
Now that the our Alma Mater is closed, the fund provides assistance at the college, high school and grade school levels for children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of our dues paying members.
In the past year, we have added 9 new ‘class reps’ on the Board of Governors, but many spots still remain vacant. So, what are you waiting for? The next step is yours. Reach out to us and request being a representative on the Alumni Board of Governors for your class.
