Alex Ignacio - CHS Class of 1997

What did you do after graduation?
I took a year off before attending the University of Colorado – Boulder where I studied Economics. Now I own and operate a marketing and production company called Narrative Media, based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I wear many hats, but focus on professional photography and video.

What clubs / activities were you in during high school?
I was Vice President of Student Council my senior year. I played soccer and ran track.

What are your favorite memories from Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School?
Although I was not a great student, the academics at Catholic helped to prepare me to do very well on the SATs. The Senior Retreat was really memorable because the retreat helped to solidify all of our relationships and helped us get along really well the entire year. Because we didn’t have all of the athletic facilities the students enjoy now, I remember having track and field practice at Larkspur Middle School. I think this helped to build a lot of camaraderie and gave us a perpetual underdog perspective that motivated us at events. It was an honor and privilege to be present when Father Pitt was given the title of Monsignor in a wonderful ceremony at The Basilica of St. Mary in Norfolk in February 1997.

What does being a Crusader mean to you?
My years at Bishop Sullivan CHS are some of the most memorable in my life. Considering that graduation was literally half a lifetime ago, being a Crusader has been very influential. Witnessing and learning a Catholic perspective during my formative years has served me well, by providing a moral framework and perspective that helped me to navigate the world. I'm still in touch with many classmates, and it's fascinating to see how much we all have changed and matured. Being a Crusader has been a meaningful touchstone in my life, and one that I'll always cherish.
