“The first Archbishop Rummel Alumni All Class Reunion was started in 2009 and was held at the New Orleans Marriott Convention Center. Over 300 alumni and guests from Classes of 1966-2009 were in attendance. The All Class Reunion was started to allow all Classes from Archbishop Rummel High School to have a chance to meet and mingle with Alumni from every graduating class,” said Kevin O’Brien, ’93.
The annual Alumnus of the Year and the Raider Legend Award were initially awarded in 2009. Longtime faculty member John Niemietz received the Raider Legend Award, while Dave Russo, ’71, was presented with the Alumnus of the Year Award. Also that evening, former football coach Don Perret led a rousing chant of “Raider Pride.”
