Saint Xavier welcomed six graduates into the prestigious Alumni Hall of Honors on Wednesday, October 20 at the Louisville Marriott East. The induction dinner and program also included St. X National Championship Swimming & Diving Coach Todd Larkin ’86 as the keynote speaker.

The tradition of recognizing distinguished graduates for their accomplishments began in 1967 with the inception of the Outstanding Alumnus Award and in 1983 with the Athletic Hall of Fame. In 2007, Saint Xavier unveiled the Alumni Hall of Honors, expanding the criteria for which an alumnus can be honored, to include career, social or academic achievements. At the same time, alumni who displayed athletic excellence in high school, college or professionally, will continue to be honored. All Athletic Hall of Fame inductees and Outstanding Alumnus Award recipients are considered past honorees and members in the Alumni Hall of Honors. The Hall of Honors induction ceremony is a biennial event. Currently, more than 300 alumni are members of the Alumni Hall of Honors.
