Catholic school alumni are major contributors to the health, welfare and economic vitality of Louisville and the entire region. The Salute to Catholic School Alumni is designed to spotlight, for the civic and corporate communities, the impact that Catholic schools have had on the development of many of this community’s most significant leaders. The Catholic Education Foundation sponsors this annual dinner event.
