SI Alumni Chapters
Dear SI Alumni and Friends,
My predecessors at the SI Alumni Department began visiting alumni in cities across the country well over a decade ago. What started out as a way to connect with alumni who’ve moved away from the Bay Area has turned into a tradition that is rarely seen at the high school alumni level.
What I found when I traveled to New York and Washington DC for the first time in years was enthusiasm, spirit and camaraderie from SI alumni that crossed all demographics. We had Stanyan Street era alumni and university aged alumni and everyone in between mixing and mingling at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan and Gonzaga College High School in Washington DC. And we look forward to our next trip to the Los Angeles area next month.
What these alumni chapter events tell me is that there is an intangible bond that exists between all of us no matter our age, gender, affinity or geography. It’s more than school spirit at this point, it’s more a common acknowledgement that we were formed in a special school, by special faculty members who by design helped us understand our greater role in the world around us.
If you have a interesting story about meeting and alum in a far away place send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In the library, we often help students find experienced people to interview in various fields for their academic and passion project research. In order to better facilitate this service, we are creating a Library of Human Knowledge, Experience, and Expertise, a living library of actual people who are willing to answer questions about their knowledge.
Justice Peter Siggins ’73 to Receive the Christ the King Award
On Wednesday, May 18, 2022 the SI Alumni Board voted to award Justice Peter Siggins '73 the highest honor it bestows upon an alum of St. Ignatius College Preparatory, 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."
The Board chose Justice Siggins for this award because of a combination of his professional accomplishments as a former California Appellate Court Justice and pro-bono work in the Jesuit community for various schools including St. Ignatius College Preparatory.
