Student Government Brings Back Old Traditions While Bringing In New Traditions

Posted March 15th, 2021

“St. Augustine Prep is more than just a learning institution. It is a home where students come together to grow into men and develop lifelong friendships. In the spirit of the Brotherhood, the Student Executive Committee has placed ping pong tables across campus. By bringing back this old tradition of the Brotherhood, students will be able to enjoy time together and reset in between classes.” senior Cameron Compare announced. The Student Executive Committee has worked tirelessly this year to breathe normalcy into events and life on campus.

These student leaders have worked together to develop creative ways to enjoy the Brotherhood despite challenges posed by the pandemic and social distancing restrictions. The Executive Committee and the student body went straight to work and facilitated the purchase of a new ping-pong table, assisted in the proposal for an outdoor Senior Prom for the Class of 2021, and planned for the construction of a Beach Volleyball Court to be enjoyed by present and future Hermits!
