May 1, 2020 | Update to Alumni
Dear CHS Alumni,
During our Teacher Supported Online Learning we have had much to celebrate. Our students have been recognized for service, academic achievement, leadership, and athletic accomplishments. We have also had wonderful news highlighting the accomplishments of a few of CHS alumni.
- Winston Decuir ’91 was named the LSU Vice President of Legal Affairs and General Counsel.
- Dr. Jim Rhorer ’82, a local emergency room doctor, recently developed (and made free to the public) ConnectedCare, an app that allows family members of loved ones to have up to date information on a loved one’s health during this time of the pandemic.
- Dr. Jared Llorens ’93 was named Interim Dean of the E.J. Ourso College of Business at LSU.
- Clyde Edwards-Helaire ’17 was drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Congratulations to each of these men and congratulations to all of you for carrying on the CHS tradition of excellence. CHS alumni are making a difference every day around the world.
Graduation will be a virtual event this year for the first time ever and our seniors have had to adjust to a fourth semester that has been like no other in the history of our school. We are seeking alumni volunteers to “Adopt A Senior.” Alumni volunteers will be asked to mail a congratulatory note to their senior at the time of graduation and then to touch base with them via mail around the start of the fall college semester.
The Office of Alumni Relations will provide some form language for volunteers to use and then volunteers can tailor it to their style as they see fit. If you are interested in signing up to “Adopt A Senior” please click on the link below and complete the Google Form. Volunteers will be assigned a senior at random. This will be a special treat for our senior class….please strongly consider participating in this “Adopt A Senior” drive. To volunteer please click here.
In Alumni Association news, the 2020 CHS Fishing Rodeo will not occur as originally planned in Fourchon on May 28-30 but it is still on. While details are not final, the 2020 CHS Fishing Rodeo will be a summer-long event where participants will compete in a format similar to other “Catch, Photo and Release” tournaments popular all across the country. Additionally we hope we can host a celebration at CHS at the conclusion of the tournament. Stay tuned for future announcements, registration and rules.
As we will be praying for you, please pray for CHS and the Brothers of the Sacred Heart. Remember, “It’s More Than Four, It’s A Lifetime!” Go Bears!
