Fr. John G. Sturm, S.J. '35 was a standout athlete in his days as a Canisius High School student. After his ordination, he served as Prefect of Discipline at the school for 19 years. His love of sports and care for others lives on through the Fr. John G. Sturm, S.J. '35 Legacy Fund.

The Fr. Sturm Legacy Fund was created to build the endowment of the Fr. Sturm Scholarship, provide tuition assistance for NativityMiguel Middle School students who enroll at Canisius High School, and to support the President's Athletic Fund which helps cover capital athletic purchases.

This year's Fr. Sturm Legacy Fund luncheon will be on September 26, 2017 at the KeyBank Center in downtown Buffalo. All proceeds from the luncheon will go to the Fr. Sturm Legacy Fund.
