Can You Help Us Find Our Missing Alums?
Alums and Family and Friends (AFF) is undertaking a project to track down missing alumni who graduated from St. Matthew’s School during the years 1961-1980. We’re asking for your help to find them.
The more alumni who learn about the great things happening at their old school, the broader the base of support for school scholarships. AFF's commitment to St. Matthew’s School is long-term, and the more people we have helping us achieve that goal, the better.
It’s also an opportunity for alumni to reconnect with their former classmates, parish and neighborhood. For many people who’ve been long absent, the chance to attend a reunion, visit the school, or resume old friendships, has been an invaluable experience.
1000 Alums are Missing
During the years 1961–1980, approximately 1640 students graduated from St. Matthew’s. We currently have about 600 of these people on our mailing list; 30 more are known to be deceased, which leaves about 1000 names.
Attached, you will see the names of all the missing alumni. They are organized alphabetically under the year they graduated. It’s likely that everyone on the list of missing graduates is known to one or more of our readers.
Part of St. Matthew's Past & Future
Our goal is to find everyone missing from the alumni lists and give each of them the option to reconnect with their roots. Not all of them will, but it’s nice to have the choice. And that’s all we’re asking of you — help us give these missing alumni the chance to renew ties to their old neighborhood and their former classmates. Then they can decide for themselves if they want to be more than just a part of their school’s past by also contributing to its future. — Maggie Lee, Editor
