Alumni Profile

St. Raymond School

The Jesuit values that were instilled in Broncos as Santa Clara University students continue as they continue to lead by example and now mentor their children. Without the many dedicated Bronco volunteers, St. Raymond School would not be what it is today. Selflessness is a large factor of volunteer work and no group realizes and lives out this quality more than those in the Bronco community. These alumni volunteers did not even realize the amount of hours they dedicated to the school until Cat Westover '84 interviewed them and brought their significant contributions to their attention.
