Burr Ridge, IL. – November 2019: On Monday, November 25, 2019, Evanston Alderman Thomas M. Suffredin will join alumni of Saint George High School and members of the De La Salle Christian Brothers at a plaque dedication ceremony honoring the 50th Anniversary since Saint George High School’s closing in 1969. Saint George High School was a Catholic secondary school operated by the Brothers of the Christian Schools in Evanston, Illinois between 1927 and 1969.
The ceremony will begin at 11:00 A.M., CST on the property of AMITA Health Saint Francis Hospital Evanston at 350 Sherman Avenue in Evanston, IL, the original site of Saint George High School. Brother Michael Fehrenbach, Visitor of the Christian Brothers of the Midwest, will offer brief remarks. All Saint George High School Alumni and members of the Evanston community are invited to attend.
The plaque was donated by Saint George Alumnus Mr. John O’Connell. “The idea of the plaque was primarily to provide a remembrance to my father’s generation and to classmates who have passed away over the years,” said Mr. O’Connell.
