St. Anthony Jr. & Sr. High School in Wailuku celebrates its 160th Anniversary this weekend.  The Catholic Marianist school was founded in 1848 as a parochial boys school with just six students. Today, the co-ed campus has an enrollment of 243 students at its Jr. & Sr. High campus, and boast such alumni as World Series champ Shane Victorino, Kumu John Lake, and Maui Judge Richard Bissen.  The anniversary event will begin at 12:45 Sunday at the school’s Marianne Hall where memorabilia will be shared-including old pictures of the campus, yearbooks and archival material.
