CBHS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION--- Men for Tomorrow. Brothers for Life.

Men for Tomorrow. Brothers for Life.

As we begin our 144th year of the Brothers in Memphis, the tradition of St. John Baptist de LaSalle continues, with Christian Brothers High School  leading the Mid-South through excellence in academics and athletics. Everyone who has been involved with CBHS has helped to  build a tradition, a history,  and a reputation which is untouched by any other school in the city.

Another constant over the years at CBHS is our bond as alumni. One of the most common statements made about Christian Brothers graduates is how close we are as a whole. More than 10,900 living alumni throughout all 50 states and beyond is a testament to the good work that the Christian Brothers have accomplished through the years...over 10,000 strong, yet we are one!

Our greatest richness, as Brothers' Boys, lies in our people – Brothers, teachers, students and especially our fellow alumni. The boys who enter CBHS and endure its rigorous course of study graduate as men and are proud to take with them an incredible work ethic and  a strong Lasallian spirit. There is a wealth of talent and resources that sets our alumni apart and makes them valuable assets as they lead and serve their communities. 

The mission of the CBHS Alumni Association is to ensure that we never lose sight of this fact, and we encourage all of our alumni to be  involved with our association. The Alumni Association sponsors a number of events throughout the year, including tailgates, class reunions,  annual alumni golf tournaments,  distinguished alumnus awards,  quarterly alumni Mass and breakfasts, Lenten reflections, and annual fund drives.

The Office of Alumni Relations is located inside Stephen Hall and is open from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. during the school day. For more information, contact Janet Hill, Director of Alumni Relations, at  901.261.4930 or alumni@cbhs.org.
