SBDHS Alumni - John Iverson ('71)

Updated: Oct 16, 2018

Graduated from SBDHS in 1971

Attended St. Anne’s School early and middle years.

"My overall experience with SBDHS was wonderful. The teachers were excellent. It was nice to have my best friend of more than 50 years attending St. B. with me, and I have fond memories of all of the relationships that I made there with fellow students and staff. Some of my favorite memories were caroling and celebrating Christmas in the gym, and the grade 12 retreat at Villa Maria. My experiences at St. B truly enriched my life."

Proudest Moment at SBDHS My proudest moment at SBDHS was receiving my diploma and realizing that my hard work in academics and extracurriculars had paid off.

Best Advice for a New Student High school can seem overwhelming at first. But the wonderful teachers and staff at St. B will guide you through the ups and downs of your time there. You will feel welcome from the moment you arrive, and you will appreciate the spiritual atmosphere.
