Dear Knights,

Happy New Year! I hope that your holidays were filled with peace and joy.

I am pleased to inform you that our Alumni Association is starting the new year in a great place. We have a new executive committee and they are:

President – Juan Barrera, ’88

Vice President – Ruben Saenz, ’64

Treasurer – Chris Ramirez, ’85

Secretary – Arthur Mancinas, ’88

Ex Officio – Paul Martinez, ’84

You will be receiving communication from Mr. Barrera in the future. It was a pleasure serving the Holy Cross community as Alumni President and I look forward to assisting Mr. Barrera in the transition.

Please continue to support our beloved Holy Cross and the Alumni Association. It is through the efforts of many that Holy Cross is able to continue its mission of educating the hearts and minds of children.

I wish all a prosperous new year.


Paul Martinez,
