STM Athletic Hall of Fame
Athletic Hall of Fame:
To continue to attract alumni back into the STM community, an “Athletic Hall of Fame” is being developed. This event is being coordinated through the Development Office with the assistance of several current faculty members and a former faculty administrator. The event will be held early evening on Saturday, May 4, 2019. This coincides with our Spring Spree. This year there will be no cost to attend the evening festivities. The presentation will be held in our chapel from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. All alumni, parents, and friends of STM and inductees are welcome. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
