2018 Hall of Honors Recipients

On Friday, October 5, 2018, Xavier honored four deserving individuals at its Hall of Honors ceremony during an all-school assembly.  Doug Simon (’87), Sister Mary Ann Spanjers, OSF (’77), and Captain Michael L. Weeldreyer, USN (’91) were inducted into the Hall of Honors as Distinguished Alumni and Jim Romenesko will be recognized with an Honorary Alumni Award.  The Hall of Honors recognizes people who would be Catholic Christian role models for our present and future students. 
The criteria for induction as Distinguished Alumni into the Hall of Honors are:

  • A period of at least fifteen years must have elapsed between graduation and eligibility.
  • The nominee is a positive role model, worthy of being emulated by current and future students of Xavier High School.

The Honorary Alumni Award is presented to friends of St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System who have a demonstrated impact in their Church and/or community and who can serve as role models which our students can emulate. 
We congratulate these members of the Xavier community and thank them for using their gifts and talents to make a positive difference in the world.
