Our the 16th Annual Spring Gala honoring La Salle Military Academy Alumni Association was a great success!
A central part of our educational mission at The De La Salle School is to teach our young men how to be “De La Salle Gentlemen.” These qualities of respect, responsibility, leadership and service are a direct legacy of the traditions inherited from La Salle Military Academy. We are pleased to announce that the Honoree for our Sixteenth Annual Spring Gala is the La Salle Military Academy Alumni Association.
This organization has been bringing together the graduates of La Salle Military Academy in brotherhood, friendship, fellowship and service for years. Since The De La Salle School’s Feasibility Committee was established in 2001, members of the La Salle Military Academy Alumni Association have been active participants in the development and realization of the mission of The De La Salle School. LSMA members served on our founding board, with many still holding key positions on the current board. Sixteen years ago, LSMA members began an annual Golf Outing benefiting The De La Salle School, which to date has raised over a million dollars for the education of economically disadvantaged students who attend our school. The success of the Golf Outing is realized through the support of hundreds of LSMA alums.
LSMA alumni have been central figures at our yearly Gala, and along with their spouses and family members have made our fundraising Luncheon a legend in our local community. LSMA alumni have sponsored the education of individual students every year, and established and supported key fundraising initiatives for our school and our Graduate Support Program. They have truly been the older and wiser Lasallian brothers to our students and our graduates as Saint La Salle had envisioned.
