Celebration Wall

St. John’s 150th anniversary is a family affair spanning generations of Johnnies. We have invited our extended family of students, alumni, faculty, employees, and friends to send us their memories about life and learning at St. John's and offer birthday messages, too. You can even read about families who have shared their St. John's pride across the years.
