Mark Biegler - Class of 1999 (Alumni Monday Speaker)

Mark Biegler - Class of 1999 (Alumni Monday Speaker)

It was an honor to have SAA alumnus and current SAA parent Mark Biegler, class of 1999, as our speaker for Alumni Monday during chapel on November 13, 2023. He spoke to the boys about some of his favorite memories while attending The Academy and left them with some great words of advice.

Alumni Monday - Mark Biegler

Mark attended The Academy from 1st to 8th grade. After graduating, he went on to attend Saint Mary's Hall for High School and then Southern Methodist University for college, where he received a degree in accounting. 

In his engaging presentation, he gave the boys a few popular events that took place in the same year when he graduated so they could gain some perspective and relate to him better like the Spurs winning their first NBA championship and the creation of Pokémon and Spongebob

With the help of his two sons, Jack and Austin, he also used his time to share some of his fond memories as an Academy cadet and leave the boys with some advice to take with them as they continue their days at SAA and beyond. 

Thank you, Mark, for joining us today.

Class of 2024 Gift

The recently graduated class of 2024 gifted The Academy with a beautifully crafted flag stand made by SAA alumnus and former coach Bobby Zander '72. This is a meaningful and sentimental piece, as it was made using salvaged wood from The Academy's old gym, which was removed in 2020. It is also engraved with a dedication to our beloved and recently retired Mr. Barry Bradley. The stand is located in the lobby of the Bondurant Field House and Fine Arts Building.
