Supporters of the Class of 1976 Challenge Day

November 25, 2020

Today’s SJA Shining Stars are the Class of 1976 and all who took part in their Challenge Day of Giving for SJA held on November 17th.


Reunion giving is one way to support and enhance the mission of the Academy. During the pandemic, finding creative ways to increase connections to our school shows our students, faculty, and staff that those who came before are invested in their success.


The Class of 1976, who will be celebrating their 45th reunion next year, challenged all classes to give to SJA through a virtual day of giving. The competition focused on class participation. The goal was to support the SJA Assistance Fund to help provide the necessary technology, training, and health and safety measures needed to help our school community thrive during these challenging times.


The response to the giving day was tremendous and inspiring. Alumni shared videos, 153 individuals donated, and we received thoughtful messages of gratitude and concern for SJA.


Congratulations to the Class of 1984, who snuck ahead of the Class of 1976 and won the class participation challenge.
