St. Brigid has been in existence since 1855 so there are thousands of alumni out there. There have been several reunions over the years of St. Brigid High School graduates and a few reunions of some of the elementary school classes. However, information on graduates’ current whereabouts is sketchy. In an attempt to create a more current database of our graduates, we are requesting that alumni send us their current information by printing the Alumni Info document on the right side of this page, filling it out, and mailing it to St. Brigid School, Attn: Alumni Database, 312 Fairground Rd., Xenia, Ohio 45385. You can also send the information requested in an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to hear from you!
We have officially begun an Alumni Association for St. Brigid School. Current activities include building a database with current information on our alumni, planning a get-together for alumni (perhaps at Christmas time), creating a facebook page for St. Brigid School that will include alumni info, and assisting any individual classes with reunions. We are looking for an individual or two from each class to gather current information on the whereabouts of the members of their class. If you want to get involved, join us at our next meeting. Our facebook page is St. Brigid School Alumni – Xenia, OH. “Like” us and you will receive our updates automatically.
Maggie Wagner was presented with the 2020 Distinguished Graduate Award at the annual Spaghetti Dinner in January. Our recipient attended St. Brigid School kindergarten through 8th grade and graduated in 2009. She was in junior choir, cantored at the Saturday vigil Mass, participated in Honors Art Enrichment, and started and led the annual Pro-Life day with her class for her final three years. In 8th grade, she was chosen to receive the Mother Seton Award. She graduated from Xenia High School in 2013 as a Graduate of Distinction, which is the school’s version of valedictorian. She then attended The Ohio State University in Columbus and graduated in December 2016 Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies and currently works at the Greene County Prosecutor’s Office. She has served on St. Brigid’s Parish Council, volunteers each summer with Vacation Bible School, and is in her third year teaching 2nd grade PSR. She and her family have chaired the Gold Fish Booth at the Festival for many years and she sings in the choir at St. Paul’s in Yellow Springs. The rigorous and challenging education she received at St. Brigid set her up for success as she continued her schooling afterwards, and teachers in high school were impressed not just with her school work, but also with her respect for her elders and her kindness to others. Most importantly, because of her Catholic education at St. Brigid, Maggie learned how to stand up to challenges against our faith in a world that is increasingly secular. She learned how to have a true Christ-like spirit, how to serve others, and how to extend true love and forgiveness to those who hurt others. Her greatest joy is being able to spread the Gospel of Jesus to others through her words and deeds every day. Congratulations, Maggie!
