Twelve stellar examples of the ideals to which all Canisius High School alumni strive were honored at our Alumni Awards induction ceremony in Scaccia Auditorium.
Men for Others, Always
With nearly 10,000 living alumni, one of the strengths of Canisius is its highly-engaged alumni community. Every day, Canisius alumni positively impact the world around them in a variety of ways, utilizing God-given talents and the Jesuit values instilled during their years at Canisius. These men — strong of body, mind, and spirit — live out the Jesuit motto of "Men for Others."
Congratulations to Fr. Dennis Baker, S.J. ’98, who Wednesday was named president of Loyola Blakefield.
The President and Board of Trustees of Canisius High School are proud to announce seven 2023 inductees to the Athletic Hall of Fame. They will be inducted as part of a gala event on Saturday, Nov. 18.
“Alex was an all-time great guy and easy to love," said Vice President for Institutional Advancement Andy Deyell ’91, a classmate, friend and fellow member of our Board of Trustees with Alex Gress '91.
Mark Paradowski '99 and several other CHS grads were again part of the 11 Day Power Play's outstanding marathon hockey fundraiser.
Andrew Kang '22, who excelled in the arts during his CHS career, has continued to do so as a freshman at Boston College.
Kang performed at famed Carnegie Hall in February as part of The Liturgy Arts Group of Boston College.
Requiescat in Pace, Mark Russell ’50.
We mourn the loss of Russell, one of the nation’s foremost political satirists, who performed comedic routines at his piano for more than five decades. The bespectacled and bow-tied Russell gained national fame for his public television specials, many of which were recorded at Buffalo’s WNED.
Fr. James Van Dyke, S.J. '77 delivered the homily during the funeral Mass for Jason Arno '03 at St. Joseph Cathedral.
