PioneerFest celebrates community

Students, alumni, families, and friends filled Pioneer Field celebrating everything that makes the SJ community so special

Pioneers of all ages gathered on a sun-drenched fall day for football, food, games, music, and community.

Before and after the football game at Pioneer Field, alumni, students, faculty, families, and friends enjoyed a cookout, live student music performances, halftime competitions, and games for the youngest of Pioneers to some of the oldest alumni. While the Saint John's Football team didn't bring home a W against Wachusett, the day proved to be fun for all. 

Johnny the Pioneer made his official debut at PioneerFest, rallying the Superfans and cheering on the Wings Over Worcester eating competitors (including Headmaster Alex Zequeira P'19, pictured here).
