Join the Green Devil Fund for SPHS Alumni Night - October 8

In salute to Green Devil Alumni, St. Petersburg High School hosts an alumni tailgate dinner and half time tribute on Friday, October 8th as the team takes on Gibbs High School.

“St. Pete High has a long tradition of excellence and sportsmanship,” said Coach Joe Fabrizio.  “We figured dinner and a game would bring back memories, plus offer alums a chance to walk on Stewart Field once again.”

For a pre-purchased $10 ticket, alumni and their guests enjoy dinner from LeRoy Selmon’s in the school’s cafeteria at 5 p.m.   The tailgate dinner lasts until 7 p.m.   Tickets for the tailgate dinner can be purchased by calling the school at 893-1842.  The $5 game ticket can be bought at the gate.

During half time, alumni will gather by decade on the field and have their names announced.

“Some of my fondest memories are my moments on the field,” said SPHS principal Al Bennett.  “What a great way to relive those moments, walking under the lights, hearing the crowd cheer and waving to fans.”

Official SPHS alumni shirts are available for $10 each.

For further information or sponsorships, contact Tracey Keim at 709-9841 or  or Assistant Principal, James Adams at 893-1842.

Green Devil Fund Provides New Lockers for SPHS Athletes

At halftime at St. Petersburg High School's first home football game Sept. 7, the Green Devil Fund will present a check for $9,000 to the athletic department for new lockers in the school's field house. The school's athletic boosters will match the donation. "This is a great opportunity for students and alumni to see their dollars at work in special projects on the area's oldest high school," said Green Devil Fund president Sally Baynard. "We are excited to work closely with principal Al Bennett in identifying other ways to help students, teachers and the campus."Bennett recognized the need when he took over the reins at his alma mater last year. "The field house is a cherished part of an athlete's experience here at SPHS," he said. The Green Devil Fund promotes student success and academic achievement through community donations in cooperation with the Pinellas Education Foundation. These funds are earmarked for campus beautification, teacher grants and matching funds for Band and Athletic Boosters.
