Friends, Thank you very much for your support! We have reached our goal of $1000! Your generosity is humbling. Fondly, The Torello Family See More

THE STORY:

In 1959 a group known infamously as the “Worst Class Ever” graduated Notre Dame High School in West Haven, CT. My father, Alex Torello, was one of those young men.

Dad has reignited the brotherhood of Notre Dame graduates. He invigorated alumni involvement with a grassroots movement. He believed that if everyone called their ‘pals’ and donated just $10 they could find a way to create a monument to honor ND vets and in particular, fallen classmate 2Lt Richard J. Regan USMC.

They did so, with nearly 100% of the Class of ‘59 participating. Dad also serves as Class of ‘59 “corresponding secretary” by sending emails to organize monthly lunches. These lunches are attended by 20-25 alumni who eagerly anticipate sharing camaraderie with their ND brothers.

We are proud to say that our Dad is being acknowledged by his grateful classmates. He has been nominated as a Knight of Honor. This distinction is reserved for alumni, faculty/staff, and loyal friends who have embodied the ideals of Notre Dame and made a significant contribution to the school community.

The Knights of Honor Induction Ceremony and Dinner takes place at Anthony’s Ocean View on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 6pm. True to his consideration for others, Dad would love all friends and family who wish to attend to be able to do so-regardless of financial accessibility. The cost of a dinner ticket is $125, of which a portion will pay for dinner costs and the rest will go to Notre Dame to pay for financial scholarships and Campus Ministries.

Won’t you please consider a donation of any amount to ensure all who wish to attend can? If you would like to attend the evening’s events, but are not financially able, please contact me. I will be sure to get you the tickets you need. Thank you.

To purchase tickets, please contact: Briana Ragiani, Director of Alumni Relations. Phone: 203-933-1673 x268 Email: bragaini@notredamehs.com

Thank you! Laura (Torello) Gladding

“Notre Dame High School believes in recognizing those individuals who have, in their own way, made a contribution to the school community or have lived by the ideals of the Notre Dame Code. Begun in 1986, the "Knights of Honor" program is the manifestation of that belief.” --Notre Dame’s website, 2016.
