Support Alumni Owned Businesses

Through the years, SJND has benefitted from local alumni businesses who generously donated items for the Crab Feed, Boosters Club Pasta Feed, Grand and Golden Reunions and even volunteered their time to host an alumni workshop. Without hesitation many of these alumni say “yes” to SJND. During these past months we have seen many businesses close their doors for good and Covid-19 has reminded us the importance of family and community and thus the Alumni Office wanted to create this new section.

Amanda Edwards ‘12 hosted an SJND Alumni Virtual Workshop this summer for our younger alumni who needed help with their resume and LinkedIn Profiles. Her workshop was a huge success so if you are in need to update your resume or LinkedIn Profile reach out to Amanda.


The SJND Alumni Office recruited the help of Stanley Yee ‘98 owner of Town Tavern to host our Bourbon Tasting over the summer. During the pandemic Stanley and Town Tavern have been creative in hosting virtual classes where you pick up your cocktail kit at Town Tavern and learn all about the different spirits. Please visit their website for upcoming classes or order food to go.
