Students in graduation



The Advancement Office and the Alumni Association sponsor many events throughout the year to bring alumni together. Below is a listing of some upcoming events and information:


St. Benedict's Annual Scholarship Gala – our biggest event of the year – will honor three men who played an integral role in The Hive forming a unique, one-of-a-kind partnership with the United States Naval Academy.

The honorees, who will each be lauded with a Medal of St. Benedict’s – the school’s highest honor – are Mike Scanlan, Dean of Administration at The Hive, Don Laurie, St. Benedict’s Class of 1960, and Michael Haskins, Vice Admiral of the U.S. Navy (Ret.).

Please plan to join us as we celebrate our honorees on May 9 for a lively night to benefit our vital scholarship program. Click here to read more about the Gala and to register for the event.
