“Lord, to whom shall we go?” A Conversation From the Heart of the Chancellor By Rev. Michael J. Russo

L

ord, to whom shall we go?” These words of St. Peter, and the context in which they were asked, are given in one of my favorite scenes in Scripture. Life was becoming increasingly complex for the Apostles. Hard decisions had to be made and St. Peter, looking around and feeling overwhelmed, turns to the Master. Young people often feel the same way in an increasingly complex world.

FOREVER MORE | SUMMER 2018

Overwhelmed, they too search for somewhere to go for answers. This is why Catholic Schools are so important and vital. We believe our Catholic identity and creed help in human flourishing and happiness. We believe we have something positive to offer. Here is the Faith vision we are called to nurture at STM – to provide fresh and verdant

pastures for our students. This is our primary mission — to acquire, as St. Paul exhorts us, a spiritual way of thinking. We do not just educate the mind, we aid in the salvation of a soul. We prepare young hearts for the green pastures of Heaven. Soon to begin my sixth year as Chancellor, I have placed emphasis these past years on strengthening the


school’s Catholic identity. I pray that you have seen, in the humble efforts of your Chancellor, that this mission is being realized, if only baby step by baby step. I thank you for the outpouring of support I have received from so many of you. The recent implementation of the parent meetings has been particularly well received and appreciated. Plug into the many positives at STM and consider, if you have not yet done so, to

do your part to help make our Envision More Campaign a success. We want to expand our “verdant pastures” and keep them healthy and vibrant. All the more, in the complexities of modern life, do we dare to echo those beautiful words of St. Peter: “Lord, to whom shall we go? You alone have the words of everlasting life” (John 6: 68).

W

hat may seem like a toy to some is really a new shot at life for a six-yearold girl named Elise. In late October, Elise’s aunt stopped by STM to visit our environmental science teacher and mentioned her desire to build a therapy chair for her niece, who suffers from a mental and muscular deficiency known as hypotonia. Although she’s an engineer, Elise’s aunt lacked the time to build the chair and needed help with electronics and coding. The STM computer science class taught by Mr. Dan Duhon discovered a unique opportunity to help this exceptional young girl. A team of three seniors decided to adapt a Fisher Price Power Wheels Wild Thing into a fullyfunctioning electric therapy wheelchair. At first it was supposed to be a quick, “only the electronics” job that evolved into much more than that over the course of five and a half months. Each team member has unique skills that helped make this project a reality. Matthew is excellent with coding and electronics and completed most of the source code including communication between the arduino

and the parents’ phone. William has a knack for soldering and did much of the wiring between the electronic parts and all of the cable management; he also designed the PCB board that lets the whole device power up and stay working. Will has some extensive and very useful experience with power tools, 3D modeling, and 3D printing that all helped him complete much of the custom fabrication for the buttons, power switches, and other modifications. The hours of coding, 3D modeling and printing - and even more hours of soldering - culminated after five and half months of loving labor in a final product beyond anything that was expected. The chair’s most recent version is fully Bluetooth controllable, includes a button that allows Elise to operate the chair for her therapy, has external switches to easily swap between the two control methods, and has a power switch. We faced many challenges to get the chair to that state - everything from simply learning to read documentation to learning how to document so that we would not repeat mistakes that others had made and to the many, many mistakes we made ourselves. Truly learning how to work as a team was another important lesson that we learned as we accomplished more and grew comfortable doing tasks that we learned as we went. Everyone experimented with the code, everyone did soldering and cable management, and everyone facilitated the 3D printing and designing of custom pieces. Each task had more involvement from one person than another, but each task was done better and quicker than any one of us could have done on our own. As we worked more and more and began to test the chair’s functions on the school grounds, we drew many curious eyes and even more questions. The question we got

asked most was why. Why spend 20 hours a weekend with this little chair? Why work an hour a day every day in class and almost every day after school for five and a half months? The answer is really quite simple. For Elise. We spent over 250 long hours on this project and faced frustrations and setbacks - and so, so many failures. Yet, there is no possible way to convey

the feeling of fulfilment and peace everyone on this team felt when Elise finally sat in her chair. With a smile on her face the entire time she was being driven around, Elise felt a sense of freedom she had never felt before, an excitement for movement when she pressed the big yellow button that barely overshadowed the exhilaration that everyone in that room felt for her. The joy of that little girl was and always has been and always will be why we chose to do what we did; her progress in her therapy and her smile in that chair are the only inspirations we ever needed.

“Why work an hour a day every day in class and almost every day after school for five and a half months? The answer is really quite simple. For Elise.”

T

he Cougars of STM have proof that dreams really do come true. The goal of the new DREAMS (Design, Research, Engineering, Art, Math, Science) space, generously funded by PTC, is for students to creatively apply what they learn in science and technology classes as well as in other areas of the curriculum. Through the Envision More Capital Campaign, an Academic Building created more space for DREAMS. This new space has positively transformed our curriculum. The DREAMS area currently includes three labs: a fabrication lab, an innovation space, and a broadcasting studio. The fabrication lab has industrial workbenches and stools. Additional benches hold power tools and 3D printers. The lab also has a computer-operated router, hand tools and fabrication supplies. The innovation space has collaborative workspace options that include café and standard height tables, modular seating and counter space with stools. The broadcasting lab is home to our weekly TV production, Cougar Cast. It has the components of a TV productions studio: anchor desk (designed and built by students), a green screen wall, modular seating for interviews and state-of-theart equipment and cameras. In the summer of 2019, we are scheduled to complete the renovation of the last DREAMS space—the design lab. It will be the home for digital graphics and animation courses.

TV PRODUCTIONS

Ms. Robin Herrington’s video production class filmed the talks, which are being vetted for upload to the TED-Ed Student YouTube channel. Other classes utilize the innovation space as well. After reading Frankenstein, Mrs. Lyndley McNabb’s English IV students were challenged to build a creature out of conductive dough, utilize electrical circuits and determine why electricity is a central idea in the novel. Theology got to dream with Mrs. Jacquie Lerille’s freshman classes making beautiful crosses using supplies in the lab. These crosses were presented to nursing home residents for Easter. Madame Cosima Hasenstein’s French II students created French specialty stores—deli, butcher shop, bakery, etc. The students arranged pictures of French food items, priced in Euros, on a poster to look like a store.

The fabrication lab is home to physics, Chemistry II, and engineering classes. Everything STEM can be done here— from class projects to Science Olympiad to preparation for competition at the finalist level of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

The TV production studio, with the guidance of Ms. Robin Herrington, produces Cougar Cast, delivering school news and special interest stories to the entire student population in a polished TV format. Students work with the latest equipment and technology for video production. The Cougar Cast staff has won numerous awards in regional and national competitions.

The DREAMS space is not just limited to use by science and technology classes. Mrs. Cherie Daigle’s English IV Honors classes recently made the

DREAMS have turned to reality countless times this school year as the DREAMS labs help produce the future creative thinkers of the world.

or a fresh high school graduate, the unknown college world can be extremely scary. I had no idea what to expect. I didn’t know how hard my classes would be, how I would fit in, or if I was really ready to take this next step. However, I never understood how advanced my St. Thomas More education was until I noticed my preparedness compared to that of others around me. I was prepared in many ways: I knew how to do math, I knew how cite sources, I knew how to study, I knew how to pray. But in addition to the academics and spiritual life, I was also prepared for college technology demands. My STM class was the first to have 1:1 laptops all four years. Teachers, students, and staff worked together to use the new technology to broaden our learning. After four years, using a computer for

everything felt normal. My university used Moodle, which is the learning management system used at STM. Colleges also give each student a personalized school e-mail address— we had that at STM. While it doesn’t seem like a big deal, these resources made the transition to the next step of my life so easy. Many students struggled with turning assignments in on Moodle, finding their class resources, and understanding Moodle’s many features. Beyond school email and Moodle, I had been using a computer at STM to transform my learning. Other college students were not nearly as prepared. I am now a college graduate and just finished my first semester of an MBA program. For one class project, my group decided to analyze the

Information Technology department at STM. I interviewed Robin Herrington, STM Help Desk Director, who explained that the main goal for her and for the technology department is to ensure students are well-prepared for college as well as the real world. Now that I am working at STM, I see even more advancements. Technology has opened doors to numerous electives, allowed more opportunities for students to find their niche, and created a space for teachers to further personalize their teaching styles. Learning has become more interactive and students more engaged. St. Thomas More is not only a college-prep school in terms of academics and prayer, but also in terms of the constantly evolving world of technology.

WHY I

MARCH By: Shannon Phillips

Each year around the anniversary of Roe v. Wade on January 22, hundreds of thousands descend on our nation’s capital to participate in the national March for Life. Christians and non-

16

FOREVER MORE | SUMMER 2018

Christians, men and women, young and old, black and white—all march with a common purpose, to be a voice for the unborn who are voiceless. St. Thomas More has a long tradition

of joining in the march. Students, faculty, parents, priests, deacons, and administrators journey to Washington DC to blend their voices with the thousands of other marchers. Some students march for the first time while others march all four years of high school. Their reasons for marching are as unique as the person, which is fitting since this year’s theme was “Unique from Day One.”

A question was asked of the students who made the pilgrimage this year: why do you march? One by one students (voluntarily) stood to answer for themselves this question. Here are some of their responses:


• I march for my sister, who was diagnosed in the womb to have a spinal defect. • I am adopted, and I march to thank my birth mom for life and the opportunities I have been afforded. • I march for those unable to have children. • I march because abortion is murder and it needs to be stopped. • I march because I witnessed the pain miscarriage had on my mom and I never want anyone to experience that. • I march because I have two very young siblings, and I cannot imagine my life without them. • I march because my mom was told to abort me, and she did not. • I march because women deserve better than abortion. • I march because women have been lied to about the effects of abortion. • I march for those who have chosen abortion and those who felt they had no other option.

The list could go on,but the one common thread is that they used their voices to speak up for a great injustice. Students used their voices in a completely selfless way—for the rights of those whom they may never meet. They march for those who cannot march for themselves. This STM delegation becomes the soldier at the tomb of the unknown soldier in Arlington Cemetery who keeps watch over the tomb of someone he does not know. That soldier marches regardless of weather or government shutdown or the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Over the years, our students, along with hundreds of thousands of others, have marched in a blizzard and government shutdown all for the millions of aborted children and mothers whose names they do not know. They march because it matters. They march because human life is

valuable—ALL human life is valuable. They march because they will not allow their voices to be silenced. This is a generation that is not waiting to speak up. Today, they stand. Today, they speak. Our Lord reminds the prophet Jeremiah, “Do not say ‘I am too young.’ To whomever I send you, you shall go; whatever I command you shall speak.” (Jeremiah 1:7) These students have answered the call. They have listened to the command of God to “choose life” (Deuteronomy 30:19). They offer a reminder to each of us. Our faith must be lived. Our voices must be heard. Our lives must bear witness to the love and mercy of the God of life. Today, choose life—in thought, word, and deed. Our students have, and their lives have been transformed.

Discernment ON CAMPUS By Sophie Varisco ‘19

“We’ve had a couple of breakfasts so that people who are thinking about a religious vocation can hear a little something about vocations,” noted Father Broussard.

Hebert commented, “Having people from religious orders come visit on campus has absolutely been an influence. I don’t think I’ve ever been intimidated by religious sisters, but it’s different seeing them in a church, in their convents or in their homes rather than seeing them out interacting with people on a day-to-day basis. I think I’ve seen that before but not on the scale I did this year, and it was a reminder that they are still people.”

Freshman Alexa Kiefner added,“The breakfasts have influenced my discernment of a vocation. They have opened up a community of people who are also discerning, and getting to talk with Fr. Patrick Broussard is pretty awesome.”

According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, “An inherent part of life is the responsibility to make difficult, challenging, and sometimes even painful decisions. Important decisions often require prayer time and discernment.”

uring the year, STM and Father Patrick Broussard, diocesan vocations director, sponsored discernment breakfasts for students interested in the priesthood or religious life.

“An inherent part of life is the responsibility to make difficult, challenging, and sometimes even painful decisions. Important decisions often require prayer time and discernment.” Senior Olivia Hebert shared, “I knew [the breakfasts] happened but didn’t know when they were. I went to one this year and thought it was helpful because I got to see who else was discerning or thinking about discerning. Also, Fr. Broussard just made it normal and comfortable.” The school has also provided opportunities for the students to meet members of different religious communities who have been invited on campus. These include: the Servants of the Lord of Matara (Servidoras), the Brothers of the Incarnate Word (IVE) and the Carmelites of the Divine Heart of Jesus (Carmelites). The school also encourages the presence of diocesan priests on campus.

Fr. Broussard said, “I think everybody should discern. Marriage is a natural vocation, so I think everyone is called to it because it’s natural, but then you have to discern to see if God’s calling you to forsake that good natural thing for some better supernatural thing—a higher calling.” “After seeing STM alums Sr. Marie Jardin Clos Toups, Sr. Mary of Calvary, and Sr. Mary, Mother of God, I definitely think STM has a way of spreading love and joy and just being open to whatever vocation God’s calling us to. Their four years here have born a lot of fruit; just look at where they are now with the Servidoras,” Kiefner remarked.

Step Out Boat! OF THE

FAREWELL TO THE CLASS OF 2019 Emma Luke ‘19

S

tep out of the boat,” this year’s Campus Ministry theme, has led the STM family to think of their faith lives in terms of the imagery of stepping out of a boat, implying that we should take the initiative in our relationship with Christ. However, I can affirm that this phrase truly goes beyond the boundaries of the campus ministry program and encompasses the very essence of the well-rounded STM education. The success and charm of STM stems from one mindset: the faculty, staff, coaches, and mentors all expect greatness. In every sport, club, or extra-curricular activity, students are called to step out of the boat, to take any challenge head on. Through the rigorous academics, the intensity of the extra-curriculars, and dedication of the teachers, we have been raised to set and achieve goals. Over the last four years, we have become reliable, competent

20

FOREVER MORE | SUMMER 2018

individuals due to the environment here. STM not only provided us all the tools to be successful, but it also provided us a home with the support of people around us. With my time at STM quickly coming to an end, I can’t help but have a different perspective on this familiar phrase—stepping out of the boat. Seniors are about to take a huge step out of the boat and are wondering what the tumultuous waters have in store. The boat is comfortable and familiar. It has provided glorious memories and relationships that are difficult to say goodbye to. As this step inches closer, it is important to reflect on our time here in the boat. Through every retreat, campus ministry event and theology class we were taught that our faith is what ties our lives together and that the call to be God’s servant first is a mission we are to

live out daily. Our class came together through Hopefest and continued to bond as we led the underclassmen in retreats this year. We contributed to something bigger than ourselves for the glory of God’s kingdom. This 2019 class’ leadership did not stop in campus ministry; we were there to cheer for and participate in many championships in various sports. Through every club and activity, we formed relationships with each other that will connect us for a lifetime. As we take this final step, we bring with us all the lessons and relationships that St. Thomas More has provided. May we always remember what these last four years have taught us: to strive for greatness. We are well equipped for whatever lies outside the boat; we just have to take the final step to see what our adventure holds.

Options Students Embraced by Athletics By: Kim Broussard, Athletic Director

P

eople come into your life and sometimes stay for just a short time. Then there are others who make a huge impact that lasts a lifetime. In 2007, STM began the Options Program to provide a modified academic inclusion program designed to meet the needs of developmentally disabled students. The students in the program are integrated into the regular curriculum and school community as much as possible depending upon their cognitive abilities. In 2008, the Athletic Department had a vision of embracing these students within the athletic community by allowing them to be part of a team in some capacity. In 2009, with the assistance of Options teachers Julie Spedale and Danielle Price, the vision came to life by allowing Elliot Venable (a freshman at the time), along with

22

FOREVER MORE | SUMMER 2018

his dad Mike, to assist the athletic trainers with hydration during the football season. As the years went by, Elliott progressively became more involved. He was allowed to attend summer workouts, and during his junior and senior years he dressed out with the team. He practiced every day and dressed out for all the games. He experienced everything the other players did - walking from the locker room to the field, running down the ramp through the smoke - he was even seen a few times on the sideline during the game giving encouragement and “advice” to players.

“A very big impact it changed his life in such a positive way. He was no longer confined to labeled activities and was able to be with his “boys.” When Elliot’s mom was asked about the impact this level of participation had on her son, she answered, “A very big impact - it changed his life in such a positive way. He was no longer


confined to labeled activities and was able to be with his “boys.” Dressing out was a big deal for Elliot, but probably the most profound experience was to have the “Elliot Special’ play every Thursday as the team’s final workout before the Friday game. It was HIS play and HIS time to shine! Senior Night for the football team was a very special moment for the Venable family to know that Elliot was truly one of the guys. Marlene said, “It was always a very special moment when Elliot led the prayer in the huddle,

and this was all possible because the coaching staff embraced him. Our hearts belong to STM.” Elliot is a 2013 graduate and is just one example of the exceptional students God has given to STM; many other Options students have followed in these same footsteps and have become members of many athletic teams on campus. These athletes have given STM so much more than STM has given them. Their stay at STM is a few short years, but their impact will be for a lifetime.

“It was always a very special moment when Elliot led the prayer in the huddle, and this was all possible because the coaching staff embraced him. Our hearts belong to STM.”

PROUD TO BE AN

Alumna ~

FOREVER MORE | SUMMER 2018


I “In 2005, I truly witnessed what it meant to be ‘God’s servant first’ at STM when we took in so many students from the New Orleans area after Katrina.”

n May of 1996, I became an alumna of St. Thomas More Catholic High School. Twentythree years later, I am about to watch my son do the same in the class of 2019. Back in 1996, I thought I would leave 450 E. Farrel Road and did not really envision returning back as much as I have. However, over the past 23 years, many things brought me back to this school. I would return to judge speech tournaments, and I would watch my younger siblings each take their turn graduating. In 2003, after completing graduate school, I returned to STM as a teacher. I spent three years in the classroom and gained a different perspective of the school. In 2005, I truly witnessed what it meant to be ‘God’s servant first’ at STM when we took in so many students from the New Orleans area after Katrina. That moment, and countless others, reminded me of

how much STM continues to give and to have a lasting impact. Thirteen years ago, I moved to my current role as an Assistant Dean at UL Lafayette. Yet, I still kept coming back to STM. My son would attend Slam and Jam Basketball camps for years, and now my daughter attends Sparkler and Cheerleading camps over the summer. I also became involved with the STM Alumni Association as a Class Captain and currently serve as an Alumni Board member. It has been great to reconnect with alumni and meet others through our different events. My favorite event is St. Thomas More Career Day. I love that current students have the opportunity to hear from alumni in nearly every career field. It is such a fun day for both students and alumni. One of the best parts of being an alumna has been watching my son there for the past four years. We have been part of the Cougar Football family, and it has been a great learning experience for him. Seeing your child grow up and find his passions in the same place you found yours is extremely rewarding. I am constantly impressed with all that St. Thomas More has done for my family and for others. From events like Hopefest, to the inclusiveness of the Options program, and all the other opportunities STM continues to offer its students and the community, I am very proud to call myself an alumna of St. Thomas More!

COUGAR CLASS

CHALLENGE

I

n February, our alumni class captains kicked off the Cougar Class Challenge getting our alumni involved in giving to Envision More. Winners of the challenge were announced at the Alumni Crawfish Boil on March 23. The Class of 1992 raised the most money for the campaign, and the Class of 1984 had the most participation.

A special thanks goes out to alumnae, Cathi Pavy for sharing her creative talents with us to produce a fun and catchy campaign. We were lucky to have Stephanie Stevenson and Terrie St. Martin give a lesson on how giving to the campaign is as simple as a math equation - 7,500 alumni x $10 x 60 months = $4,500,000.

WHO’S THE GREATEST CLASS OF THEM ALL?

FROM THE DESK OF

A

s part of Catholic Schools week, STM recognized Mrs. Lola Champagne as the 2019 Outstanding Educator of the Year and Mrs. Carolyn Artall as the Outstanding Supporter of the Year. St. Thomas More is proud to honor these outstanding individuals who are integral parts of the STM family.

Mrs. Lola Champagne Outstanding Educator of the Year Mr. Richard Lavergne STM President

Mrs. Carolyn Artall, Outstanding Supporter of the Year

Anne Pitre, Advancement Director

s the Director of Advancement, I find great joy in working with our many supporters and in seeing their passion for St. Thomas More. Most are current parents and past parents, some are grandparents and alumni, but all carry a beautiful passion for our wonderful STM community. Giving—whether time, talent or treasures—isn’t always easy or convenient. Giving requires commitment, devotion, and most of all sacrifice. I thank you, our supporters, for your gifts and for your sacrifice. The impact you have made remains with us forever. Over the years, our supporters have made an impact in educating over 7,500 children and have created jobs for faculty and staff. Your gifts create an environment that fosters spiritual growth and

academic and athletic excellence. The impact goes far beyond these walls. Our students participate in pilgrimages and mission trips; they feed the hungry, visit the sick, rebuild homes, and, through Hopefest, give to non-profits in our community. One day, like you, many of these students will be the leaders and generous supporters of Catholic education and our Lafayette community. So, to all of you, thank you for the endless volunteer hours you provide to our academic, athletic, extracurricular and campus ministry programs. Thank you for the gifts you have given and the difference you have made in the lives of our students. Thank you for helping to provide a Catholic environment that challenges our students to prosper and encourages all of us to be “God’s Servant First.”

MORE FROM ENVISION

I

n August 2018, we launched the 3rd capital campaign in the 37year history of St. Thomas More Catholic High School. This campaign establishes a clear vision for our future and will increase the quality of each student’s experience at St. Thomas More. The plan affects each student today and in the future. The first phase of the campaign included the relocation of the softball and tennis complex and an academic building with two options classrooms. Still to come this fall are the Cougar Stadium ticket booth and the softball and tennis concession area and restrooms.

We are thrilled to announce our next step has been approved by our Advisory Council and will include the selection of the architect for the Chapel. The Chapel addition to the front of the existing school clearly defines St. Thomas More as a Catholic high school. Benefits of the Chapel include: • Stand-alone space for morning, mid-day and afternoon prayer • Confessional • Celebration of the liturgy by grade level • Adoration

Additional areas of the campaign include the Athletic and Fitness Center and the Creative Arts and Community Center. Please mark your calendar for two events that will benefit these two areas. • August 24, 2019 | Le Pavillon Cougar Athletic Fundraiser For more information, contact: Brent Romero at (337) 962-7990 • September 28, 2019 | STM Café Celebrating the Arts For more information, contact: Andrea Guarino (337) 288-6279 For more information, please visit stmcougars.net/envisionmore or contact anne.pitre@stmcougars.net
