Saint Xavier University participates in Southside Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade; 85 Saint Xavier students, alumni and staff travel with float

Chicago (March 11, 2008) Approximately 85 Saint Xavier University students, alumni and employees rode or walked with the SXU float during the 2008 Southside Irish Saint Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday.
Float participants met at Gilhooley's Grande Saloon on West 103rd and Pulaski, where they boarded shuttle buses that transferred them to the SXU float. All participants received a free green Gilhooley's at Saint Xavier University T-shirt.

“This was wonderful opportunity for the Saint Xavier family to step forward and support their university,” said Director of Community Relations Maureen Connor Kelly, who chaired the float committee. “Thanks to everyone who participated in this great event.”

Committee members included Shannon Center Director Jennifer Kjos, Kristy Devine and Jon-Pierre Bradley.

“There was such a great turnout of SXU students, staff, alumni and their families,” Kjos said. “The SXU Cougar mascot was a huge hit as he marched in front and took pictures with families along the parade route.”
