Welcome to the McBride Alumni Website
 

In 1921, funds to build a Catholic High School in St. Louis, Missouri were given to the Archdiocese by Mrs. McBride as a memorial to her husband, William Cullen McBride, an outstanding Catholic layman. In the words of the late Cardinal Glennon, Mr. McBride was “a man who saw and understood the questions of his day, and even foresaw those of the future. He realized the need for educating the hearts and minds of youth so as to fit them for facing the problems of life.”

Under the guidance of the Brothers of Mary, McBride opened in 1925. During its 47 years, McBride rose to become a landmark and a milestone in education. Situated on the northwest corner of Kingshighway and Cote Brilliante Avenue, this limestone educational institution yearly molded and shaped the lives of six hundred young men. Graduates passed through her famous colonnades each year well prepared to meet their moral and civic responsibilities in an adult world. For a variety of reasons, the school closed in 1971.

In 1985, as part of their 50th reunion, the class of 1935 decided to rekindle the fire by establishing a McBride Alumni Club. Our rosters now include 418 teachers and 7,385 former “McBride Micks”.

On March 10, 2009, the New McBride Alumni site was launched.  Please let everyone know about this site, and keep the spirit of McBride alive.

McBride Legacy Scholarship UPDATE
March 2022

At the 2020 Throwback Basketball Game, we kicked off our Phase II fundraising efforts for the McBride Legacy Scholarship Fund with Joe Nettemeyer offering to match all gifts made to the scholarship campaign up to $250,000. We embarked on this fundraising effort so we could increase the Legacy Scholarship awards from $800 to $1,100. We are happy to report that at this year’s Throwback Game, we announced that we had surpassed our $500,000 goal.

Once again, we extend our gratitude to Joe Nettemeyer for his generous match opportunity to continue to spark alumni interest in carrying forward a Marianist education for today’s Chaminade students who are McBride legacies. These young men are the bright minds of the next generation who will lead and sacrifice to build a better future.

Alumni Participation

Thanks to the support of more than 538 Micks, of which 144 had donated to Phase I and 394 were new donors for Phase II, we finished Phase II by raising $507,726.

Participation has been strong across all the classes.

The top classes are:                   

1967- 49 donors
1970 - 44 donors
1968 - 37 donors
1969 - 36 donors  
1963 - 35 donors 
1964 - 33 donors
1962 & 1965 29 donors each
1966 - 21 donors
1961 &1971 20 donors each

In total since 2010 when we embarked on our Program, we have raised nearly $1.6M and 650 Micks have made donations to the Legacy Scholarship Fund.

The McBride Family of Scholarships

This year the McBride Family of Scholarships was created to include the Legacy Scholarship Fund as well as four new scholarships created by Joe and Jane Nettemeyer with $200,000 in gifts. This brings the total value of the McBride Family of Scholarships to $1.8M toward our $2M goal that we committed to Father Ralph Siefert to secure the naming right of McBride Alumni Hall.
