#SCC25 Turn Back the Clock - May 5, 1994 - The First Meeting

 #SCC25 Turn Back the Clock – May 5, 1994

The newly-formed Southern Connecticut Conference held its first-ever meeting at ACES with member school principals and athletic directors, and coordinated by ACES Executive Director Peter C. Young. Young was instrumental in organizing the newly-formed conference.   The Conference still holds its Board of Governors meetings at ACES.

The league members approved its first slate of officers, led by President Ed Higgins (Branford HS principal), Secretary Dr. Thomas Neagle (Notre Dame headmaster) and treasurer John Novakowski (Sheehan athletic director).  The meeting concluded with a press conference with local media, led by the league’s first executive secretary, Sal Cavallaro.  Cavallaro unfortunately would lead the league for just a few months, as he suddenly passed away in July 1994.   Bill O’Brien would replace him shortly thereafter.
