former Duluth East boys basketball coach and athletic director’s reputation was
built on much more than wins and losses.
AD Shawn Roed was a student at East when St. John was overseeing the athletic
department. According to Roed, St. John was known around school to “bleed red
and gray through and through.”
“It was always a highlight to see
Irv and to hear his stories over the years,” Roed said. “He will forever hold a
special place in the history of Duluth East High School as a teacher, Hall of
Fame coach and athletic director.”
St. John, indeed, is a Hall of

many and a friend to all. His upbeat personality and contagious smile would
lighten up any room. He was adventurous and more than anything, loved to have
fun. Fishing and hunting with his dog Blue were his passions in life. If you
didn't know where Chase was, you were sure to find him on a northern Minnesota
lake or in the woods. Chase was also an unbelievably caring individual, who
would help anyone without hesitation. A competitive and talented athlete in
many sports, Chase was a leader both on and off the field. Preceded in death by

Our program believes in developing Servant-Leadership as one of its primary goals. A servant-leader focuses primarily on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong. While traditional leadership generally involves the accumulation and exercise of power by one at the “top of the pyramid,” servant leadership is different. The servant-leader shares power, puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible.
