The First Day
Dear SI Alumni and Friends,
After 18 months we are all back to SI! More than 1,400 students and 300 faculty and staff members are creating a buzz on campus not heard for almost two years and it sounds and feels great.
You can join that buzz at the SI ALUMNI HOMECOMING PARTY on Saturday, Sept. 11, from 2 to 5 p.m. We will have drinks, food, music and a bouncy house for young Wildcats. Reconnect with friends and former faculty on the Columbus Piazza and help us honor Mr. Nick Sablinsky and Ms. Barbara Talavan for their service to us. Purchase tickets here.
Our premiere video of Wildcat Alumni Network's third season highlights the first day of our alumni, the feelings, anticipation, and fears of starting a new life in a new school - at St. Ignatius College Preparatory.
While many things have changed over the years, much at SI has remained the same. Kids are still kids. Bright eyed, nervous, full of life and energy. SI continues the Jesuit tradition of developing the whole person, instilling a sense of curiosity, generosity, leadership, and courage to improve the world.
Enjoy the video and we’ll see you at SI’s Homecoming on Sept. 11.

Curt Mallegni '67 Honored with Christ the King Award
The SI Alumni Board recently met and selected this year's recipient of the Christ the King Award.
The Christ the King Award honors SI alumni "who have distinguished themselves in their professions, who have shown a commitment to the SI community and who best exemplify the ideal of service to God and fellow man."
Curt Mallegni of the Class of 1967 was such a man and is a well-deserving recipient. Curt passed away on January 28, 2020, after a short illness. He was 70 years old. He is only the fifth recipient to receive the award posthumously since the award originated in 1960. His wife Kathy will receive the award in his honor.
