“Bash” guests enjoying the live music and barbecue.

Jesuit High School hosted its third annual Back to School Bash on Saturday, August 22 to welcome in the new school year.

The Bash included music from a live band called Inner-Soul, a barbecue, and sampling from seven Alumni vendors.

Many families, students, alumni, and staff attended the Bash and enjoyed the refreshing weather, food, drinks, and company.

“It’s a great celebration and a time for the entire Jesuit community to come together,” said Fr. David Suwalsky, S.J, President of Jesuit High School. “It’s like a neighborhood block party.”

“I always enjoy coming onto campus and seeing the changes that have been made, particularly the new stadium,” said alumnus and faculty member Mr. Josh Barnes ‘10.

Many guests sampled and socialized with the alumni vendors in the Senior Quad. The vendors included Alan Leatherby ‘81 with Leatherby’s Family Creamery and Sean Harbaugh ‘87 with Pipin’ Hot Smokers BBQ.

As the evening continued, guests enjoyed live music, a delicious barbecue dinner, and friends and family in the Sophomore-Junior Quad.

“It’s lots of fun, we’ve got live music and great food,” said student Jack Murphy ‘17.

Jesuit’s Back to School Bash was a fun opportunity for the many members of the Jesuit High School community to celebrate the new school year, and catch up with friends following  summer vacation.
