At Southridge, contribution is at the heart of what we inherit and pass on, and 25 years into our journey, we remain grateful for the visionary contributions of our parents, students, teachers, leaders, alumni, and alumni families. Reaching this important milestone as a community is a testament to the people who worked tirelessly to establish our school. The foundational principles they embedded in the Southridge culture have created a close and connected community, and they have had an enduring impact on our over 1,200 graduates.
On Saturday, March 7, 2020, we welcomed back to campus alumni and alumni families to reconnect with current families and staff, while also recognizing the accomplishments of our alumni.
As part of the 25 Years of Southridge celebrations, and in the spirit of recognizing those who continue to represent the values of Southridge, we officially launched the 25 Years of Remarkable Alumni initiative in December 2018. We reached out to alumni and the alumni parent community, along with other groups such as teachers, administrators, coaches, and peers to encourage them to nominate alumni who have had remarkable achievements since they graduated. From their contributions as volunteers and community leaders to their academic and professional successes, our goal was to encourage people to nominate alumni who are continuing to make a difference in the world.
The 25 Years of Remarkable Alumni event was so much fun – it brought together over 200 members of the Southridge community and it was a wonderful opportunity for the alumni community to re-connect. The evening's program included student musical performances, student-led campus tours, and a 'throwback' archive display, which was appreciated by alumni and alumni parents who had not been back in many years!
