Homecoming Game - Alumni Night
Save the Date: Friday, November 3, 2017, 7:00 p.m. Watch for Details
Last year's Homecoming celebrated with the Paul VI Eagles beating Moorestown 34-8
Over 400 alumni attended the alumni festivities.
Alumni spanning the classes of 1969 thru the class of 2015 celebrated homecoming together. Game night began with Alumni tours of the school from 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Alumni were given blue fleece scarves with the monogram "PVI Alumn" and were invited to form an honor guard to welcome the 2015 PVI Eagles. Following the prayer and the national anthem, alumni, friends and family enjoyed the game and a barbeque with live music from the PVI Band. After the game there was a post-game meet and greet at the Irish Mile.
The classes of 1969 and 1970 showed up with record numbers as they kicked off their 45th and 46th class reunion weekend of celebration together at Homecoming. We even had the pleasure of having the 1970 Homecoming Queen, Patricia Heary, and her escort, Mike Chapman among us at the game! It was wonderful to see so many alumni at the Homecoming game and hope you will join us again this year.
Paul VI alumni and families (from the class of 1969 to the class of 2010) gathered at the annual Paul VI summer party at Flip Flopz in North Wildwood on July 15th to celebrate summer at the Jersey Shore. Guests caught up with beloved friends while enjoying good food and listening and dancing to music by the DJ Joe Harris. Proceeds went to the Annual Giving Campaign which is used to support scholarships for incoming PVI students.
The 2017 Golf Tournament held on June 20, 2017 was a smashing success with 152 golfers and 55 event sponsors. Paul VI High School and the golf tournament committee, would like to thank all of our many sponsors, golfers, and volunteers for their generous sponsorships, participation and support. Because of your contribution and involvement, our golf tournament raised over $41,069 in net proceeds for the school. The entire day from start to finish was absolutely phenomenal, and a good time was had by all.
We at Paul VI High School continue to advance our mission of the total development of our students by providing expanded opportunities in academics, athletics, and the arts. The proceeds from your investment will benefit our scholarship program and assist with the building improvements in the learning media center and the school dining room. Your generosity allows us to sustain the excellence that Paul VI brings to our students and to the greater community.
Paul VI Celebrated 50 Years at the Blue & White Gala and Hall of Fame Induction
In 2016, Paul VI High School commemorated its anniversary with numerous events; culminating with the 50th Anniversary Blue and White Gala and Alumni Hall of Fame Induction on Saturday, October 15th, at at Lucien’s Manor, in Berlin. Over 360 alumni, friends, and families spent the evening together toasting our Hall of Fame Inductees, reminiscing, enjoying dinner, dancing, and celebration of 50 years! It was an evening to remember.
Every three years, members of the Paul VI community are named to the Hall of Fame. It is not easy for the school to select from its many successful alumni. There are graduates who are successful in every field—business, government, education, law, science, health care, performing arts, and more. Many graduates are committed to serving the Catholic Church as laypeople, priests, and religious, and many alumni elect to send their own children to Paul VI.
The school honored eight individuals, one family, and one athletic team for their outstanding contributions to both Paul VI and the larger community.
The 2016 inductees into the Paul VI Alumni Hall of Fame are:
Tami L.Bach-Slonis, M.D., Ph.D. ’87
Matthew Brady, M.B.A. ’83
Most Reverend James Francis Checcio, J.C.D ’84
