The Alumni Association of Saint George’s School is YOU! There are no dues. You are a member by virtue of your walk across Graduation Bridge. Former students who did not complete their senior year but left the school in good standing also are members. As alumni of SGS, you experienced the unique opportunity to receive not only an outstanding education; you were also an integral part of an environment that provided both staff and students with a sense of community and belonging.
In the Inland Northwest alone there are over 500 alumni and former students. Including Seattle and places like the Bay Area, Southern California, New England, and the Midwest, you number more than 1,100, and those are just the ones we know about. Saint George’s continuing reputation as the area’s best school is due in large measure to the caliber of its alumni and former students.
The Alumni Association encourages all of our alumni to continue as part of our SGS community long after they leave the school. The continued commitment of our alumni is part of what truly allows Saint George’s School to continue our tradition of excellence.
A small group of dedicated alumni and former students living in the Spokane area make up the Alumni Board of Directors. The Board is dedicated to promoting a continuing and mutually beneficial relationship between our alumni and Saint George’s School.

Help alumni utilize the available connections and experiences of other alumni and the school as meaningful benefits throughout their lives, both professionally and personally.
Positively represent the school in the Spokane community and beyond.

As we reach the end of 2020, we want to recognize the role Saint George’s alumni and donors have in our campus community. The time, talent and generosity of alumni and friends mean so much for students. Donor support creates a sense of place and purpose for students and strengthens our shared legacy.
This year was exceptional. We incurred additional costs for more staffing, technology and making the school COVID compliant. Individual contributions to Saint George’s have gone a long way in helping students navigate many challenges and continue on in their education successfully. We are committed to providing every student a world-class education and in doing so ask for your support.
This is the time of year when many people consider charitable gifts for tax purposes. And some employers offer matching programs that can potentially double the impact of your gift. So please join fellow passionate Dragons in making a gift to Saint George’s today!
SGS alumna Lauren Meyer '08, who lives and works in South Australia, was recently awarded the South Australia Young Achiever Award In STEM sciences. Lauren investigated the impacts of wildlife tourism for her PhD in biochemical ecology at Flinders University, particularly the effects of cage diving on white sharks. Her work contributed to the implementation of new regulations and new tourism assessment frameworks used by the Department of Environment and Water. She is also the co-founder of Otlet Research, a tissue sharing platform for researchers around the world. Her dad David adds, "Thank you to SGS and it’s wonderful staff and teachers who inspired her." See a short Facebook Video about Lauren's work from the South Australia Young Achiever's page.
Saint George's regrets to announce that the annual Golf Classic scheduled for June 26th has been cancelled. The restrictions on off-campus events during Phase II means the school needs to avoid getting out of compliance with state rules. Everyone who has already paid their entry fee will receive a full refund. Saint George's intends to restart Golf Classic tradition in 2021 on the Friday before Hoopfest. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Athletic Dierctor Ryan Peplinski.
