Alumni Council Awards
The Alumni Dinner is the focal point to Alumni Weekend. This event features the Alumni Award, the Kerfoot Society for Distinguished Faculty and the Exceptional Service Award, all sponsored by the School's Alumni Council. We ask our alumni and friends to nominate deserving candidates each year. Below is a description of each award, past award winners and nomination forms.
Alumni Award

Each year the Saint James School Alumni Council honors an alumnus who has distinguished himself or herself with outstanding service to the school and to society. We invite alumni and friends to nominate candidates for this award. When considering a candidate for nomination, particular emphasis should be placed on the criterion of service to Saint James School - such as active service as a Class Agent, Trustee, or Alumni Council member, or active leadership with Alumni Weekend planning, Annual Fund or other alumni events.
