Hello Fellow Alumni,
The alumni association informs our alumni, shows support of each other and our alma mater, and supports the school through prayer, recruitment, and financial contributions. We work closely with Katie Murphy Waggoner (CR ’92) the Alumni Relations & Special Events Coordinator. There is also an alumni board representing different decades. If you are interested in being a part of this board, please so let us know. We are also continuously looking for writers and content submission for our newsletters which is a wonderful way to get involved whether you are living locally or have moved out of state.
We have alumni “friendraisers” throughout the year which include an alumni tent at Marian University for the Homecoming game and Pack the House Night for a varsity basketball game. These events as well as alumni sporting events like soccer, volleyball and basketball give alumni of all ages a chance to catch up with what is going on in each other’s lives as well as the life of the school. We welcome you to join us, the more the merrier!
The Raider Nation O’Celebration every March is our large fundraising event for the year. It includes Monte Carlo gaming, silent and live auction bidding, as well as dinner and dancing. The annual “Smarty Party” trivia night continues to be a hit with over 400 guests each year. Proceeds from the CRHS Golf Outing go to the Alumni Legacy Scholarships which are handed out at Homecoming each year.
Being active in the alumni association has given me a wonderful opportunity to feel connected and I encourage you to so the same!
