The SJS Alumni Association is a sizable group of alums, parents, faculty, engaged parishioners and friends of St. John's. Members actively pursue initiatives to advance their mission of supporting our parish school. The over arching goal of reconnecting with our alums in order to create a visible network is flourishing and taking hold.
Our EXECUTIVE BOARD is comprised of a variety of talents and ideas designed to enrich this organization and our school.
MR. WILLIAM HILBERT (Class of '84), the association's president, is at the helm of the group. He and his wife Trish (Class of '85) are present school parents who have been involved in alumni efforts from the start; coupled with his professional experience, Bill will be a tremendous asset!
MRS. MARY KANALEY SETTER (Class of '99) will serve as the vice-president of the association. Mary brings her experiences as both a current school parent and parishioner to the group. Her professinal background as a financial advisor, as well as her volunteerism with the Kenmore Merchants Association, will contribute greatly!
MR. TOM GARRITY will serve as the group's secretary; Tom brings experience as former president of our Parish Council. He and his wife Linda are former school parents, and she is on the faculty of SJS; Tom is the perfect complement to the group!Mr. RON PIASECZNY will serve as the director of finance; Ron is a graduate of the Class of '90. Ron works with our country's veterans and has held many civic leadership roles, including president of his law school professional organization!
Rounding out the executive board is MR. BILL TEPAS, a SJS graduate of the Class of '66. He will serve as Chairman of the Alumni Association. Bill is the Alumni Coordinator of Cardinal O'Hara High School and brings a wealth of experience to our organization!
