Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Alumni Tour has been suspended. Once dates and locations have been solidified we will promote the information to alumni.
Belen Alumni Tour
Belen Alumni get ready! That’s the message that Jesuit Father Guillermo “Willie” M. García-Tuñón '87 wants you to hear. This academic year, Father Willie will be joined by Alumni Association Executive Director Carlos Bravo '86, and Belen Jesuit Executive Director of Advancement and Alumni Relations Phil Fernandez ’94 on a tour to select cities. The goal, to connect with alumni (active or inactive) from around the country and reengage them by informing them about all the wonderful things happening on campus.
In the early years of the Belen Alumni Association in Miami, Jesuit Father Juan M. Dorta-Duque ’40 began visiting alumni throughout the world. He coordinated reunions in several cities throughout the United States and traveled as far away as Europe and Latin America in search of establishing vital links with Belen alumni.
In a similar way, Father Willie is following in Father Dorta’s footsteps. “Since taking office on January 15, 2016, I started to develop a plan for the continued advancement of our school,” said Fr. Willie. “As part of the process, my goal has been to travel throughout the country in order to reconnect with my alumni brothers that are living outside of the Miami area. I look forward to continuing meeting alumni and having the chance to establish a bond with each.”
Alumni in the selected cities or surrounding areas are encouraged to save the date and RSVP as soon as possible by registering to attend. If you have any questions please email the Alumni Office at email@example.com.
Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain. The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline. In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty. The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow. Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
