2018 Alumni Calendar

2018 is a BIG year for Cherokee Creek Boys School! It was 15 years ago that CCBS opened its doors to our first student. As we mark our anniversary, we are proud that almost 400 boys and families have been a part of our history. And, of course, you are a part of the legacy of our small school with a big heart.

Our alumni events will be the perfect time to reconnect with staff and fellow alumni and make new memories. We have several events planned for 2018 and hope we can welcome you back!

If you have any questions, please email our Alumni Coordinator Sarah Walsh at swalsh@cherokeecreek.net.

Mom’s Reunion Retreat & Celebration | October 4 – 8, 2018

Pack your flip flops, swimsuit, and party hat and join Cherokee Creek current and alumni moms to celebrate Beth Black and Cherokee Creek’s 15th Birthday!!

My mom continues to share how meaningful and personally rewarding her relationships with Cherokee Creek moms are. My 15th anniversary gift to her is organizing a reunion with as many of her beloved CCBS moms as possible for a weekend of laughter, love, and friendship. The location is still being finalized, but we plan to be in the Southeast beach region.

Mom has blocked off her weekend and is thrilled that there will be a reunion, but we want the who, what, where, and everything else to be a surprise! More information, as well as a special Facebook group, will be available soon. Mark your calendars and spread the word. All Cherokee Creek moms are invited, but this will NOT replace a Womensrest event for current moms.

When: Thursday, October 4- Monday, October 8 (for any amount of time you can come)
Where: Charleston, SC area on the beach
Who: Current and alumni CCBS mamas and Beth, our guest of honor
What: Relax on the beach, connect with old friends, meet new friends, dance, laugh and enjoy being together
Why: Why not?! It is the perfect 15th anniversary gift to Beth and a great way for moms from over the years to get to spend time together
How: Grab your phone and send a text, email or call your CCBS ladies and make plans to meet there! (Don’t forget to RSVP below)

For more event details and to sign up for this event, please email or call Shaler at scooper@cherokeecreek.net or 864-710-8183.

Thanks, Shaler


A look back at other fun 2018 Alumni Events:

Founder’s Day and Alumni Celebration Weekend | May 3 – 5, 2018

Our 15th Anniversary celebration was a BIG SUCCESS! We were thrilled to welcome back 15 alumni families from around the country and many special CCBS guests who have been involved with the school from the start. Our most senior alumni was Nate, a 2004 graduate, who brought his wife Molly to join the fun. Josh, our youngest alumni who graduated in 2018, returned to support his mentee in a CCBS graduation “Honorable Closure” ritual and to perform with the CCBS band Why Naught.

There were many chances for our alumni to reconnect and form new friendships. We hosted a welcome dinner on Thursday night, lunch and alumni panel Friday afternoon followed by a private party and dinner. 

The alumni panel was great and the largest ever! We had 12 alumni students’ stories that contained a wealth of experience, knowledge, honesty, and insight …and just plain fun walking down memory lane! 

Our anniversary party on Friday night included 65 guests including alumni families, special CCBS guests and many of our beloved staff. After enjoying a yummy dinner at the Village Bakery in Pendleton, SC many of the alumni boys headed back to the Koblick property adjacent to campus for s’mores, stories and camping around a fire before heading to raft section IV of the Chattooga early on Saturday morning. 

For a small school, we were blessed to have so many of our CCBS families return to help us celebrate a wonderful 15 years. Thank you, one and all! We are so grateful to everyone who travelled back to visit…it was heart-warming! We hope to see y’all again soon…
