REBOUND: THE CHRIS HERREN STORY coming to CBHS on Tuesday, January 23

The Christian Brothers High School Turning Tides Lectures Series will present Rebound: The Chris Herren Story, an inspiring story of addiction, miraculous recovery, and new life mission of the former NBA player, on Tuesday, January 23, 7 pm, at CBHS Heffernan Hall, 5900 Walnut Grove Rd. There is no cost and the talk, sponsored by CBHS and the Shelby County Commission, is open to all.  RSVP at www.cbhs.org/turningtides. Call (901) 261-4952 for information.




The students will be visiting January 9-27, 2018. Most are about 16-17 years old, and are very proficient in English. This exchange is an opportunity for them to get to know American culture and customs. They will attend classes each day at CBHS, each one shadowing his host student. From time to time, they will go on field trips during the school day, and there will be events organized on the weekends so they can get to know other host students and families involved in the exchange.

Your son does not need to be enrolled in a Spanish class for your family to be considered for this experience. You need only space in your hearts and homes for one more teenage son for three weeks. Our students grow very attached to their Costa Rican brothers while they are here visiting, and the opportunity is an experience your family will not regret.


Dear CBHS Parents,

We are in the final month of our Parents Annual Giving Event, and I thank everyone who has supported to date.  Your gifts to the Annual Fund provide opportunities inside and outside the walls of CBHS that make your son(s) experience special. Each and every gift enables us to continue our mission, serve Memphis, and be a leader in educating young men.

Our goal for PAGE is 85% Parent Participation. Your participation makes a huge impact on the lives of our Brothers’ Boys, and we ask everyone to consider participating by either a one-time gift, establishing a monthly gift, or making a pledge by Thanksgiving. 

We are currently at 25% so I ask every parent who has yet to participate to consider helping us reach our goal and aid us in continuing our mission.

For any questions regarding PAGE or the Annual Fund, please contact me at jgoode@cbhs.org or (901) 261-4927.

John Goode,
CBHS Development
