Alumni Awards of Distinction


DeSales celebrates the accomplishments of members of the St. Francis DeSales family with our annual Alumni Awards of Distinction. If you feel you know someone deserving of this award, please honor them with a nomination. A dinner is held each May in honor of the recipients.

Those nominated must be living examples that the lessons received during their years at St. Francis DeSales did not end after graduation, but are used throughout life.
