After travelling the world and being a part of many school communities, Mark and Sharon Beacom returned to Calgary, and were delighted to re-enroll their sons Billy ’10 and Mitchell ’13 back ‘home’ at STS. With a love of the outdoors always being a common thread in the Beacom family, both Billy and Mitchell participated in the STS Outdoor Education (OE) program.
We are pleased to also announce that two members (current and former staff member) of our Advancement team have been recognized by the Independent School Advancement Professional (ISAP) Board of Directors for their incredible impact on Advancement in the Independent School Sector.
Eighteen young alumni returned to STS on Thursday, February 20 to share their stories about the rewards, surprises and challenges of university life with our Grade 11 and 12 students at our annual “Tales from Undergrad Years” event. In a panel format, each alumnus spoke about how they chose their university and undergrad program, how they balance academics and social activities and their experience as a freshman. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and acquire advice from these alumni.
Our alumni community is exceptional and consists of almost 10,000 alumni, alumni parents and former faculty. The accomplishments of this group, both professionally and in the community, continue to impress me, and you can expect nothing less given the STS mission to live a life of purpose.
On Friday, November 1, 2019, the STS Alumni Association hosted its 9th annual Senior School students and Alumni Speed Mentoring Event. Twelve alumni mentored and advised Senior School students about what to expect in university, and the professional working world that follows post-secondary education. Our mentors represented various backgrounds that extended to accounting, medicine, engineering, law, strategic planning, investment, dentistry, entrepreneur, and business.
