"Inspire Instill Ignite" Gala brings community together

Thank you to all who made the 14th annual gala such a remarkable success!

On Saturday, April 9, 2016, the fourteenth annual Saint John’s High School Gala brought nearly 600 members of the school community together in celebration of the community and values of Saint John’s High School, which has impacted tens of thousands of lives for twelve decades.

This year’s theme, seen lived out in each of the honorees, was Inspire • Instill • Ignite. The four individuals and one family honored at the event truly live out the values that are integral to the Saint John's ethos. Their stories of sacrifice, dedication, faith, and service to education and the Saint John's mission were shared during the program.

In addition to being a night honoring select people who have contributed to the Saint John's experience, the gala is a fundraising event that consists of a Silent Auction, Raffle, and "Fund a Program" initiative with opportunities to support the school in many ways. The gala has quickly become one of Saint John's most anticipated traditions!

Thank you to all who sacrificed to make this night of fundraising and celebration of the Saint John's community possible!
