Nominate Alumni for 1st Annual Lasallian Founders Awards

Bishop Kelley High School is excited to announce that, for the first time ever, the school will recognize the accomplishments of four alumni at an annual banquet with the inaugural event taking place this fall.  The 2018 Lasallian Founders Awards Banquet will be held Thursday, Oct. 11 in the school cafeteria with cocktails at 6:15 and dinner at 7:00.

From online nominations made by members of the BK community, the school will select a Distinguished Alumni Award winner.  In addition, an alumni will be recognized for Service to the Poor and Social Justice; another alumni will receive the award for Commitment to Quality Education; the fourth award will be the Young Alumni award for those age 35 and under.

“We are excited to host our first annual Lasallian Founder’s Awards Banquet where we honor Bishop Kelley alumni who have accomplished extraordinary things in their careers,” said Fr. Gary Kastl, President of Bishop Kelley. 

Bishop Kelley invites members of the BK community to nominate alumni for these four awards. Nominations are due by August 20, 2018 and award winners will be notified by the school by Sept. 1, 2018.

The awards banquet highlights the mission of St. John Baptist De La Salle, founder of the Christian Brothers, and the five core principals of the Lasallian Mission – Faith in the Presence of God, Quality Education, Concern for the Poor and Social Justice, Respect for All Persons, and Inclusive Community.

“We encourage the Bishop Kelley community to nominate outstanding alumni who are deserving of these awards,” said Doug Thomas, BK’s Director of Philanthropy.  “The online nomination process is fairly simple and is designed to encourage the recognition and honoring of alumni and faculty who contributed to the success of Bishop Kelley High School and have accomplished great achievements in their respective fields.” 

In early September, Bishop Kelley will send out an email inviting alumni, parents of alumni, and friends of the school to attend the banquet. If you have not updated your email address with the BK alumni office, please update your information here.
