The Bell Tower Gala
Given the surge of the COVID-19 Delta variant in the City of Memphis, Shelby County, and the Mid-South region and relying upon guidance provided by public health professionals, Christian Brothers University has decided to postpone the scheduled Alumni Weekend and Bell Tower Gala events previously slated to take place in early October 2021. These events have now been rescheduled for the weekend of April 8-10, 2022 and will feature a full schedule of activities to help us remember our past and look ahead to our future.
Rather than being one of the first events of our milestone celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Christian Brothers’ arrival in Memphis, this weekend and its premier event – the Bell Tower Scholarship Dinner – will now be one of our culminating events of this special time. Please mark your calendars now and look for more information coming soon.
A Celebration of the Christian Brothers
In 2021 and 2022, CBU is celebrating its Sesquicentennial anniversary, and we invite all members of our community to join us as we honor our history, celebrate our successes, and envision and embrace our future. As we honor 150 Years of Lasallian Education, we will celebrate the Brothers of the Christian Schools, who founded our University and whose guiding spirit and core principles have defined our mission and touched the lives of every alumnus and alumna, every faculty and staff member, and countless others in the worldwide Lasallian community over the past century and a half.
As part of the Gala’s formal festivities, we will also honor this year’s recipients of the Distinguished Alumnus Award, Mr. Stephen L. Waechter (’72), and Distinguished Young Alumna Award, Ms. Melissa Duong (’13).
