Yesterday evening against the glowing lights of our Christmas tree in a newly appointed Room 22 (our former small gym), the alumni and alumni parent community gathered for a Christmas celebration, which honored Arthur (Sam) Samuels '84 as Alumnus of the Year for his dedicated service as Chair of the Alumni Council. Greg Landegger '85, our new Alumni Council Chair, presented Sam with the award.
In his acceptance, Sam mentioned his appreciation for former faculty member Dick Dryzga, and thanked the school for all that it has done for him and his family.
What I love about Saint David's is how we are a community about faith and family, all sharing what it means to be a part of something bigger than oneself. The magic and light of the Christmas Season make that even more apparent.
