Union | DLS Magazine
"Union in a community is a precious gem, which is why our Lord so often recommended it to his apostles before he died. If we lose this, we lose everything. Preserve it with care, therefore, if you want your community to survive." ~ St. John Baptist de La Salle
Published twice a year, our Union magazine is an important way for our current and alumni families to stay in touch. We feature stories with current students, teachers, clubs, athletes, and more, and we share the latest news from our nearly 9,500 living alumni. There are many ways in which De La Salle keeps that connection, that "union," strong, and this magazine is one great way in which we provide that in-depth look at the happenings on Winton Drive. We encourage you to flip through these pages and discover the latest news, programs, and updates from De La Salle High School.

DE LA SALLE ACADEMY GRADUATION
It is with great joy and pride that we honor the graduating class of De La Salle Academy, the Class of 2018!
This is the time of year where we as a school must answer
the 17 million dollar question (you see, that is what has been invested by your parents and the school to bring your class to this event today). What a shame to let this is investment go to waste and not be able to share how you have grown and developed into the young men you are today.

TWO LASALLIAN EDUCATORS SAY GOODBYE
With a combined 70 years at De La Salle High School, Mr. Robin Bradford and Mr. Michael Otterstedt have been two
stalwart educators on Winton Drive, and this fall will mark the beginning of their well-deserved retirements. To say that these two men exemplify “Lasallians without Limits” would be a gross understatement.
A TRIBUTE TO MR. KENNETH H. HOFMANN
This past spring, De La Salle lost a wonderful supporter, mentor, and friend with the passing of Mr. Ken Hofmann. With permission from Bob Ladouceur, we are honored to share his tribute to Mr. Hofmann.
