Notre Dame High School in Chattanooga held its annual Alumni Weekend festivities in July.

Monsignor George Schmidt of the class of 1962 received the 2012 Distinguished Alumnus Award from Notre Dame.

In memory of the late Jim Phifer, the Phifer family annually awards members of the Notre Dame community with the Jim Phifer Service Award. Recipients of the annual award embody coach Phifer’s spirit and love for Notre Dame High School. This year the Jim Phifer Service Award was given to the Stolpmann brothers, Mark, Donald, and Ryan.

The 1962 class of NDHS was inducted into the Golden Graduates Society on July 28 at the Golden Graduates Brunch sponsored by Alexian Brothers Senior Ministry.

NDHS honored five alumni as Diamond Graduates at the Golden Graduates Brunch.

Diamond Graduates are alumni who have celebrated their 75th high school reunion. Present to accept their award were one of Notre Dame’s oldest alumni, Erhardt Barnes ’35, and Elizabeth Graham Davenport ’36. Additional Diamond Graduates honorees include Ann Hubbuch Morrison ’37, Sister Julia Fontaine ’37, and Don Kohl ’37.
