Alumni Updates

Alumni Updates from the Bodine Bulldog Club

The success of Bodine School is most evident in our alumni. They came to us when they needed us most, learned to overcome their challenges, and have gone on to academic, professional, and personal success. They are elementary, middle, and high school students, college students, young professionals, and successful business people. We like to refer to our alumni as members of the Bodine Bulldog Club: because once you are a Bodine Bulldog, you are always a Bodine Bulldog! Below, we share some recent updates from our Bodine Bulldogs:

After graduating from Christian Brothers, Alex moved on to attend Middle Tennessee State University. He graduated this past May with B.S. from the College of Basic and Applied Sciences as a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI). Attached is a picture of Alex holding his official FAA certificate. He is currently employed at Falcon Aviation Academy in Newnan, GA as a flight instructor. He is approaching 600 flight hours and plans to move on to a commercial airline once he achieves the required minimum of 1,000 hours.

We were very fortunate to get an early diagnoses of dyslexia for Stephen. He attended Bodine School for grades 1-3, and we have been a part of the Bodine community ever since. When Stephen started at Bodine, he could not read. By the time he left, he was reading above grade level. Stephen transitioned back to Grace- St. Luke's Episcopal School in the 4th grade and  graduated in May. Stephen loves sports. During his time at GSL, he played basketball and soccer and ran cross country. Stephen was recently inducted into the Honor Society and received MVP for soccer. In the fall, Stephen will attend Memphis University School. We are incredibly grateful for Bodine School and its mission to help students read and succeed.
