SBAA Focus on Alums: Greg Giczi

Greg Giczi was raised in South Bend and is a 1966 graduate of Washington High school. Additionally, Greg graduate from the University of Notre Dame with a major in marketing and a communications minor. He is now the president and general manager at WNIT Public Television. Before his career at WNIT he held many other positions in television with companies such as WNDU- Golden Dome Productions, KAET-TV and even ran his own consulting business. “Having spent most of my life and career in the Michiana community, I’m heavily invested in the community and believe that WNIT is uniquely positioned to be the voice of the community.”



We believe that Co-Ex Grants are a benefit for students by supporting co-curricular and extra-curricular activities in South Bend Schools. These can be applied for by having a school representative fill out a grant application form.



Open to graduates of SBCSC high schools and children or grandchildren of SBAA members, we sponsor and fund numerous scholarships and provide all needed forms for applying.



We hold various gatherings and provide resources and planning assistance in order to better connect South Bend Alumni with others.


We support education in our schools by funding  co-curricular activities that are not tax funded and by instilling an awareness of the need for student service in the community.

Our main mission is to fundraise with the community in efforts to help assist local schools through providing students with grants and scholarships, so that they may purchase educational and extra-curricular items they would not otherwise be able to afford.

Additionally, we connect alumni of SBCSC schools through reunion services and various events.

Teachers who received grants from the 2016 Ace for Science tennis tournament are, from left, Mary Thorpe, Denise M. Domonkos, Jeanne Jasper, Sarah Torzewski, Emily Zablocki, David Barnes, Rose Calhoun, Susan Sakimoto, and Dave Van Dyke. Standing in back are Steve Luecke, executive director of the Alumni Association, and Margaret Dobrowolska-Furdyna, associate dean for undergraduate students in Notre Dame's College of Science.
