SMP Alumni Future? Survey

The Survey

Whether you attended the reunion or not, it is important to please take a couple of minutes to complete the semi-short and somewhat sweet questionnaire as your collective answers will determine the course the alumni association takes in the years ahead. There is a comment box at the end to expand on your answers and add any additional thoughts or wishes.

In 2022, St. Mary of the Plains High School will have been closed for 53 years and the College for 30. As our alumni base continues to age, the Alumni Association board members felt it was time to assess what you as an alumnus, friend, staff member or instructor think the Association's future direction should be. Thank You in advance for your time and opinions. We will share with you the gathered information once its compiled.
