Old Boys Councils

Old Boys Council

Founded in 2003 under the leadership of Sam Butler ’68, the Old Boys Council was formed to strengthen and grow the bond between the school and its alumni.  The Council fulfills its mission through updates about Old Boy activities, professional mentoring, fundraising, and organizing events such as the Old Boys Dinner (a welcome evening of good cheer in the bleak days of January).  The members of the Council act as a liaison between the school’s past graduates and the current leadership of the school, working closely with the Headmaster, Board of Trustees, and The Parents Committee on capital campaigns and other strategic initiatives.
Currently led by co-presidents Alexander M. Daniels ’80 and John S. Brodie ’79, the Council is comprised of Old Boys from many different eras, yet all who serve on it share a deep affection for St. Bernard’s.  There are several sub-committees including Events & Communications, Stewardship, and a Nominating Committee.
 
The full Council meets several times a year.  The meetings consist of planning sessions and updates from current faculty about ongoing issues at 4 East 98th Street including admissions, after-school activities, diversity, the curriculum, and student life.

Recent Council projects include the launch of a LinkedIn page (St. Bernard’s School Old Boys), a day of volunteer service with Brick Church, a cocktail party and exclusive viewing at jeweler Verdura hosted by Nico Landrigan ’93, and casual get-togethers such as a whiskey tasting at the Bottlerocket wine shop, owned by Tom Geniesse ’78, and a Dads-and-Grads hockey game against an equally rusty squad from Buckley.

The Council is always happy to hear from graduates who would like to get back in touch (and help organize) events with an Old Boy focus.  If you have any suggestions or would like to get more involved in Old Boy affairs, please contact Kate Fiscus in the development office at kfiscus@stbernards.org.

Sincerely,

John S. Brodie ’79 & Alexander M. Daniels ’80

Old Boys Diversity Council

Founded in 2017, the council’s mission is to encourage and participate in diversity and inclusivity within the extended St. Bernard’s family.  The Old Boys Diversity Council is inclusive among all racial, religious, ethnic, and socio-economic groups.  The council believes diversity is at the heart of our shared experiences as alumni and make our shared experiences richer, and St. Bernard’s a fuller space.  The Old Boys Diversity Council will support St. Bernard’s via outreach programs, mentorship efforts, and professional networking events.  The council looks forward to developing sustainable best practices for advancing equity work and inclusion in our school.
