Alumni Chapel

Did You Know?

  • Luther College High School is recognized as one of the four best university preparatory schools in western Canada with as many as 96% of Luther graduates pursuing post-secondary educations. 

  • The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.

  • Do you know someone in Kindergarten to Grade 8 that would like to be part of the Luther Family? Encourage them to join the Future Luther Student program!

  • In the late 1920's, during an in-house baseball tournament, Rex Schneider entered a team called "Prof Schneider's Battling Lions." This is the first hint that someday Luther teams would be known as the Lions.  

  • The International Baccalaureate provides an enriched curriculum that both covers and extends beyond regular Saskatchewan curricula in its depth and detail. It emphasizes the development of the necessary critical skills that university-bound students need to master: reflecting, inquiring, thinking, analyzing and evaluating.

  • When the College was first looking to relocate from Melville to Regina, it considered land at College & Winnipeg, College & Broad, and 23rd & Albert, finally settling on 18 acres of land on the west end of property owned by Government House, now called Royal Street.

  • Through the A Time To Build capital campaign, we have added 46,897 square feet of space to Luther College High School, including the Semple gymnasium -  the largest high school gym in Regina.

  • The gym officially opened July 8, 1951. The Sunday afternoon celebration, attended by 1,500 people, featured speeches followed by an evening celebration with another 1,500 people in attendance to hear the Luther Choir and the RCMP Band.

Alumni Chapel occurs in the first part of June each year. Luther College brings back an alumnus or alumna who can inspire our grade 12 class both in word and by their successful present and past to speak to the grads. While alumni chapel is presented to the entire student body (as all Chapels are), alumni chapel is directed to the grade 12 class who are about to become officially alumni of the College.

Alumni speakers talk about what Luther has meant to them in their vocation, and about the values that they learned at Luther and any other messages they believe a grade 12 class needs to hear. 

This year's speaker was: Rachel Mielke (HS '98)

If you would like to be the Alumni Chapel speaker, please email Angela Bethune, Alumni Relations Officer.
