On Friday, October 21, 2011, Bob Newhart (class of 1947) returned to his alma mater, Saint Ignatius College Prep, for a day of fun with the students. Bob and his wife Ginnie spent the day walking the halls, telling old stories, and looking at photos. The McLaughlin Theater was named and dedicated in his honor, and the Harlequins presented three sketches drawn from his shows and films. Bob then addressed the student body on the importance of a good education and how grateful he was to have attended Saint Ignatius. Following that, he led the the students in singing the school song.
