We welcome you to this website designed for St. Finbarr’s College Old Boys Association (SFCOBA) North America and Canada Chapter. This North America and Canada chapter became fully active during its inaugural meeting and banquet in September 2012, in Atlanta Georgia. A few of the former students including Professor Adedeji Badiru, Dr. John Nwofia, Kenny Kuku and a mega football star, Paul Okoku met as early back as 2006 to discuss how to form a body like we have today. Their collective vision and leadership enabled the rest of us to enjoy what we now call SFCOBA America, Inc. Today, the organization have grown and it continues to do so as we create awareness in the diaspora for our fellow Akoka Conquerors.
SFCOBA mission in North America and Canada is to build networks amongst our alumni and global community at large. We will support the revitalization of our school through our ideas and funds. We give our time, talents and treasures to assist in returning St. Finbarr’s College to the old glory days. We commit to supporting the use of the state of the art technology and innovation to grow our students so they can have that important competitive edge. As such, our goal is to create an environment we all can be proud of, that is, one that promotes learning, maintain and improves academic excellence, entrenches the high caliber of discipline that Father Slattery planted and maintain the prowess and standard of excellence in sports. In this spirit, I challenge you in this quest to giving back. Give something of value to your dear old St Finbarr’s College. To our friends, we also challenge you to join us in building a greater St Finbarr’s College. It is my expectation that everyone will visit our donation page and give generously to a good cause.
