Alumni Association Events and Meetings

Below is a list of the events and meetings held each year by the ECCHS Alumni Association:

Welcome Table at Homecoming Tailgate Party
The Homecoming Tailgate Party is held on the night of the Homecoming Football Game. The event consists of dinner, music, and visiting with friends, family, and other members of the ECCSS community prior to the night’s big game and homecoming festivities. Special gifts are also given out by the Alumni Association. Be sure to stop by our table at the next tailgate to say hello and check out what’s new!

Golden Grads Reunion
The Golden Grads Dinner takes place the Sunday before Columbus Day each year at ECCHS and is held for those alumni who graduated 50 or more years earlier. It is an opportunity for the graduates to meet, reminisce and celebrate. Mass is held prior to dinner, and pictures of each class are taken. Then, the 50th year class members are welcomed into the Golden Grads and presented with a small memento. Also, a class speaker is usually nominated to give a speech as part of the program. An average of 200 people attend this annual event.

Fall Business Meeting
The fall business meeting is held in mid-October at the ECC Administration Building. Please consider joining us to discuss how to advance the cause of the association for the school community.

Out-of-Town Alumni Happy Hours
This is the newest event of the alumni activities. These events are usually held on a Thursday evening and involve holding an alumni gathering at a bar/restaurant in areas where a fair number of ECC alumni reside. Alumni are invited to attend, have a drink and/or some dinner, and socialize and reminisce with the other alumni in their neck of the woods. Door prizes and 50/50s have been held and have been great additions to the night. Successful events have been held in both Pittsburgh and State College thus far.

Alumni/Student “Share Your Career” Get-Together
The first Alumni/Student “Share Your Career” Get-Together was held in December 2012. This day focuses on alumni sharing their positive educational and career experiences with current ECC students in an attempt to directly connect them to our alumni community. Fifteen alumni members participated in the inaugural event, which students found to be very beneficial in planning their career paths.

Spirit Night
Spirit Night is held during the winter months, usually in January or February, on the night of a home basketball game. Alumni memorabilia is distributed, and activities are held during halftime of the game. All of-age alumni are then invited to a local establishment after the game for food, drinks, and socializing. Drawings and giveaways are also held. The last Spirit Night was well received by the ECC community as around 100 alumni attended the event.

Alumni Pinning Ceremony
The Alumni Pinning Ceremony takes place each May to welcome and induct the graduating seniors into the Alumni Association. The pinning ceremony, which seniors have described as very memorable, involves an existing member of the Alumni Association pinning each senior with an alumni brooch. Following the ceremony, each senior and alumni pinner are given gifts, compliments of the Alumni Association. The Alumni Pinning takes place at the Baccalaureate Mass and Awards that is held the Wednesday before graduation.

Spring Business Meeting
The spring business meeting is held on the Tuesday following graduation. Please consider joining us to discuss how to advance the cause of the association for the school community.
