Dear Knights,

I hope everyone is well. We are looking forward to another successful alumni softball tournament. Here are some details to make plans and arrangements. Next alumni meeting (all are invited) is April 30th at 7:00PM in the cafeteria. Make sure to announce to your class and send representative(s). We are continuing with our efforts to enlist sponsors for our event. Details were sent to each captain but please note - Sponsor form DEADLINE is May 1st at 5:00PM. This will allow sufficient time to produce the banner. Please contact Juan Barrera at 703-477-4681 if you have any questions. Tournament rules and brackets will be emailed to all captains. If you have questions then please contact any of these individuals – Arthur Mancinas 210-663-2177, David Fuentes 210-667-5662, and Andy Alanis 210-559-4211. Captains’ meeting will be May 8th at 7:00 pm in HC cafeteria. We are requiring teams registering for the tournament to make a $500 deposit by May 8th so that appropriate planning can go into the brackets. (Class of 2014 are guests for their first year; the classes of 2010 through 2013 are allowed to make a $250 deposit since their donation is $500.)   Parking lot will again be used as a fundraiser to off-set security cost. Slots will be up for sale at the captains’ meeting. Holy Cross Memorial Day Alumni Softball Tournament is May 23rd through May 25th. Knights, please remember the purpose on this event. It is to ensure that our alma mater continues to be a viable institution that nurtures our Catholic faith, that shapes minds to change the world, and that gives us the foundation to live our lives. We hope that you will participate with this in mind.

Sincerely,

Paul Martinez, Alumni President

David Vega exemplified the essence of what a Holy Cross student aspires to be: Studious, Outgoing, Respectful of Others, and Passionate about giving back. Raised by immigrant parents of Mexican descent on the west side of San Antonio, David attended Holy Cross from 1984 until his untimely death in January, 1986. David was an all-around student, friend, and son. He played football, basketball and ran track and was seen as an all-around athlete. In the classroom, David excelled in math, physics and chemistry. As a friend, David was close to many of his classmates and many called him their brother. After high school, David aspired to be the first in his family to attend college. He had aspirations of becoming an engineer and working for a large company an helping out his family.

David’s legacy reminds us that anyone, regardless of background, can achieve great things with a combination of passion, a plan and a great attitude. We remember David today as we follow the Holy Cross Code.
