President’s Letter from Steve Schmutz
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”
– Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
My favorite teacher in high school was Mr. Schneider – he was my English teacher for three of my four years at Gonzaga Prep. Of all of the works of literature we read – which included classics such as Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Catch-22, Slaughterhouse Five, Catcher in the Rye, and A Separate Peace – my favorite book was To Kill a Mockingbird. It was easy to relate to the younger figures of Jem, Scout, and Dill as they experienced neighborhood adventures, but I was drawn to the racial conflict in the story and the character of Atticus Finch. Of course we also watched the 1962 movie starring Gregory Peck – a role that defined his career and set the standard for the hero personae.
Mr. Schneider challenged us to write a character analysis for every book we read. We had the freedom to choose our subject but were required to think “outside the box” and draw from all of the works of literature from our four years in high school. How the characters responded in moments of conflict, or how they related to one another, or how they taught others lessons were often the focus of my essays. Mr. Schneider had a major influence on me as I decided to embark on a career in education. As a graduate student at Gonzaga University I went back to Prep to observe him and discuss lesson plans. Always a proponent of original ideas and unique connections, he told me his greatest
moments were when his students taught him something new about a story he had read hundreds of times. The 2016-2017 school year is a year I will always remember, as I do my favorite books, movies, and stories. The cast included our entire school community but particularly our seniors who were faced with adversity, responded with impeccable character and dignity, and achieved greatness few classes in the history of our school have accomplished. For those of us who have served a career in education, we may enter a school year thinking, “How can this year possibly be any different”? This past year taught me many things, not least of which was how a remarkable group of young men and women can be champions both on and off the playing fields and model behavior and character most adults spend a lifetime trying to achieve.
“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
– Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
It was in the unscripted moments, those we didn’t foresee, where our year was historic. It was the moment when our community came together and vowed to raise $1 million dollars in 90 days to finish the St. Thomas Chapel – the same day our football team finished a historic season with a 2A State Championship Title. I know I speak for dozens of people when I say December 3rd , 2016 will be a day I will never forget.
The Class of 2017 will be remembered for a multitude of achievements in athletics, but their greatest statistic will be the incredible number of scholarship offers they collectively received from colleges and universities – over $17 million. When we came together to celebrate our graduates at Baccalaureate and Graduation I have never witnessed a more well behaved group of students. They applauded one another and embraced the moment with behavior worthy of their scholarship. It was a fitting end to a class that will forever be remembered for overcoming adversity and for their kindness and compassion. The 2016-17 school year told a remarkable story – one of success but also one of resilience, celebration, and faith. Resilience that we as a community could overcome a challenging fall season. Celebration as we hit a historic number of scholarship awards and faith that we would indeed finish building the St. Thomas Chapel. And just like all great stories, it wouldn’t have been a success without a tremendous cast of characters, the Class of 2017. I have no doubt these graduates will be Christlike leaders who transform the world. They have already left a legacy for future classes to emulate and aspire to reach in the years to come. As you read the pages of our 2016-17 Annual Report we invite you to be a part of the great story that came to fruition this year.
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

was more than an amazing counselor to the students of AMHS – he was a loving, caring, and compassionate friend to everyone who came in contact with him. Tim arrived at Holy Cross High School in 1998 following a career in education as a teacher at St. Paul school in Yakima and as a teacher and principal at Holy Rosary School in Edmonds. Tim moved from the classroom into the counseling office at AMHS in 2002 and for the next fifteen years he helped students navigate the challenges of high school and matriculate to college. For many of our families, Tim was the go-to person. For our adult community, Tim brightened the day with his genuine kindness and friendly manner. Tim and his wife Rena blessed AMHS with their attendance at countless events over the years – always in support of his beloved students. His son, John Paul, graduated from AMHS in 2007 and was a member of the 2004 state champion AMHS baseball team, which Tim helped coach. As the head of the counseling department, Tim established a college counseling program that propelled AMHS students to the finest colleges and universities in the US and around the world. Tim was proud to announce our students who were selected to enroll at military academies at our senior awards ceremony. The son of a WWII veteran, Tim helped organize Veteran’s Day assemblies and advocated for our band to perform the national anthem at all events. Tim has blessed AMHS and the greater community with his presence for nearly two decades and will be greatly missed.

The Team No One Wants to Play
The fall of 2016 is one many will never forget. The school year began normally, with the excitement of an excellent football season to come. However, weeks into the season few would have anticipated what was about to happen. Senior Abe Lucas tells us his story.
“After losing to Tumwater High School in the
semifinals my junior year, our team decided that next year there would be no way we would be stopped on the field. Our goal for our senior year was simple: win the first 2A football state title this school has ever seen. After a summer of hard work and dedication, and a dominating opening season victory against Issaquah high school, it looked like we were well on our way to achieving our goals. That’s when everything fell apart, or at least we thought.”
As the Wildcat football team was seen as a powerhouse of exceptional athletes, teams in the Cascade Conference began forfeiting their games against AMHS citing “NFL sized talent, “competitive imbalance,” and more. The forfeit numbers began to grow, and so did the media coverage. Overnight, AMHS became a national and international story labeled ‘The Team No One Wants to Play.’ “Just three games into the season it looked like our senior season was over. Five schools had decided it would be better for them to sit out rather than to play us. Our team (as well
as our cheer squad, Wildcat Band, fans, and the rest of the student body) were devastated, especially the seniors when we realized our final season of high school football would be cut drastically short. We realized that in life you have to deal with adversity and overcome it. Ultimately in the end it served us well, and I believe because of this experience it is continuing to serve us well. Our head coach Jerry Jensen and the rest of our coaching staff were just as devastated and upset as we were. But we couldn’t let this stop us. Our team came together and decided we had to take the high road in light of this challenging situation.” Coaches and players were trading in their practice time for interviews and their Friday night under the lights for movie nights in the quad – anything to keep school spirit alive. Even the AMHS Alumni community stepped forward and offered to play an alumni flag football game – so the students could still have a Homecoming. Finally the Wildcat football team caught a break. Eight weeks into the season – and four forfeits later – Olympic High School committed to playing at Terry Ennis Stadium. It was just what the team, the fans and the community needed. “When Olympic high school announced that they weren't going to forfeit their game against us, I cannot express how thankful I was amid the mess. When Coach Jensen walked into the locker room and told us about Olympic, the room erupted. It was so powerful to see a school and a group of players who were willing to follow through with the commitment that they made. After weeks of practice with no games, we couldn’t wait to get back on the field. By putting my trust in God, he helped me power through a tough situation and it resulted in a great reward.” The story has a happy ending. On December 3rd, 2016 in front of a packed crowd at the Tacoma Dome, AMHS handily defeated Liberty High School with a score of 56-14. It was the storybook ending to an unprecedented, undefeated, and unbelievable season.
“I’ve grown up Catholic and was raised a strong believer in God and the faith. I took a lot away from the situation, but the biggest thing I really learned is that God is truly always on my side and he will help me and those around me get through tough situations of adversity. Our team during this time learned a valuable life lesson: not everything will go your way in your life. It was an incredible learning opportunity that will serve us well in our future.” Abe Lucas is headed to Washington State University to play football. While he has many exciting opportunities ahead, the fall of 2016 is a memory he will never forget.
FAITH FUTURE A N D
THE CAMPAIGN FOR AMHS
THE TURNING POINT
The 90-Day Challenge On December 3, 2016, our community joined in
celebration as our football team wrote the end of their story, a perfect 14-0 season complete with a 2A state championship. That same evening, we held our annual DREAM auction to raise money for programs and facilities to provide the best Catholic, college preparatory experience for our students. The energy in the room was contagious on the heels of the state championship, but something exciting happened that was not in our plans for the evening: Midway through the auction, the Cymbaluk family, who had already given generously to
the chapel campaign, asked to speak to the room. Marshall and Jeff Cymbaluk took to the stage along with Tom and Shawn Hoban (who serve as co-chairs of the Faith and Future Campaign). Marshall Cymbaluk challenged our community by agreeing to match 50% of the remaining costs to build the chapel, provided we raise the other half within 90 days. What happened next was one of those moments in life that we will remember forever. Inspired by the challenge, a family in our community â€“ who have already given generously to the chapel fundraising effort â€“ donated another $25,000. Sensing
the moment, the auctioneer invited others to donate. As bid cards went up, the room erupted. Over the next twenty minutes, the room raised $100,000. Our community rose to this immense 90 day challenge and raised over $500,000 from December 3, 2016 to March 3, 2017. This funding, along with the match from the Cymbaluk family, fulfilled the funding needed to complete the St. Thomas Chapel and bell tower.
531 DONORS 226 donors contributed during the 90-Day Challenge, of which 131 were new donors.

Endowments These community members have chosen to establish endowment funds at Archbishop Murphy High School. An endowed fund provides a permanent source of funding for AMHS. These endowed funds may be established by bequest for many purposes, such as: • Tuition Assistance • Faculty and Staff Professional Development • Support of programs such as those in the arts, athletics, and clubs A fund created by your bequest can carry your name, the name of a family member, or another person you wish to honor.
Carlson Family Endowment The Carlson Family Endowment was founded by Lon and Joan Carlson. This Endowment provides financial aid to female students who are involved in a variety of school activities. Lon and Joan’s children, Megan (10) and Beth (13), are both alumni of AMHS.
Chet Wilkerson Endowment Cheston Wilkerson was salutatorian as well as ASB President of Holy Cross High School’s first graduating class in Everett, now known as Archbishop Thomas Murphy High School. Chet passed away in March 2003. This endowment was founded to honor all that he gave to the school as its first official student leader. Each year this scholarship is given to a current junior who demonstrates leadership qualities.
DeMers Endowment Don and Millie DeMers believed in Catholic education. After hearing about AMHS from a friend, they graciously established an endowment and included AMHS in their estate plans. This incredible gift provided the impetus and wisdom that pushed AMHS to create the structure for named endowments moving forward. The DeMers Endowment partially funds the tuition of up to four students annually. These students demonstrate financial need and maintain a good academic standing.
John Martens Endowment This endowment leaves a legacy in memory of John Martens and his fellow Holy Cross Alumni, in the form of a merit-based award for students of Archbishop Murphy High School. This merit-based scholarship is awarded to a minimum of one qualifying student per year in memory of the late John Joseph Martens IV, Holy Cross Alumnus class of 1996.
Kristi Bartz Endowment Kristi Bartz challenged herself to make a difference in the lives of the people she met, and to continue to grow in her own relationship with God. Her strong faith was evident in the way that she loved and cared for others. This memorial endowment was organically created through the outpour of community support from other area high schools to her fellow students, family, and friends. Each year an outgoing senior is honored with the Kristi Bartz Scholarship for their excellence in leadership, academic achievements and involvement in campus, co-curricular and community activities.
Nuessendorfer Scholarship Motivated by a desire to recognize his parents’ commitment to their children’s education and the Catholic faith, Roland and Josephine Neussendorfer’s son, Joseph, started this scholarship in their honor in 2000. This endowment supports the educational goals of Catholic teens.
Murphy Scholars Endowment Bart and Carolyn Murphy established a scholarship program in the memory of Bart’s brother, Archbishop Thomas J. Murphy. Annually, the recipients of these awards are recognized by the high school as Murphy Family Scholars. Priority in the selection of Murphy Family Scholars is given to students who have strong academic records, demonstrate financial need, and express a commitment to continue to complete the sacramental process of initiation through confirmation.

Terry Ennis Endowment The Archbishop Murphy High School Board of Trustees founded the Terry Ennis Memorial Endowment Fund in June of 2008 to honor late coach, teacher, mentor, and friend Terry Ennis. Terry’s love for nurturing young student-athletes changed the lives of thousands of athletes and students. The Terry Ennis Memorial Endowment Fund is a perpetual memorial that provides tuition assistance to students in need. The Ennis family, in conjunction with the AMHS leadership, annually chooses recipients who would not otherwise be able to afford an AMHS education.
Eberle Endowment Michael and Cecile Eberle were residents of Everett WA for over 70 years. They were fixtures in the community. Mike and Cecile left a lasting impact on AMHS by creating this endowment in 2000 to support the AMHS Athletics Program. Although, Mike and Cecile are no longer with us, their legacy lives on through their six children, 13 grandchildren, and growing group of great-grandchildren- many of whom have chosen an AMHS education. Mike and Cecile left a lasting impact on AMHS by creating this endowment in 2000 to support the AMHS Athletics Program.
Ebert Memorial Endowment Dr. Joseph Ebert practiced medicine in Everett for 50 years until his retirement in December of 2000. He brought a remarkable skill and deep humanity to his work that was recognized in awards over the years by local hospitals and civic organizations. When the former Board of Trustees Member passed away in 2002, the family created the Dr. Joseph William Ebert Memorial Fund at Archbishop Thomas J. Murphy High School in his honor.
Roman Miller Endowment† Roman Miller spent his life in Catholic schools, from his early childhood at St. Alphonsus Parish School in Ballard, to his high school years at O’Dea, and college at Seattle University. Following his service in the Army Air Force during WWII (where he was assigned to the Manhattan Project) Roman attended Seattle University and later worked in their athletic office. Roman was a high school teacher and coach at O’Dea before embarking on a career which included political advising, serving as the executive director of the Washington State horse racing commission, and scouting for the Houston Colt .45s Major League Baseball team. Roman Miller has served as an athletic adviser and board member at Archbishop Murphy High School for over fifteen years. In 2009, the school named the baseball field Roman Miller Field in his honor. This endowment was created by AMHS as a way to honor our longtime friend, colleague, and mentor. The endowment supports tuition assistance for students who are involved in co-curricular programs.
Faith Formation Endowment† The Faith and Future Campaign (led by co-chairs Tom and Margaret Hoban and Shawn and Kathy Hoban) fulfilled the dream of a chapel on the campus of AMHS. With the generous support of the Cymbaluk family, the project was blessed by Most Reverend J. Peter Sartain in May 2015, and construction was carried out by Gaffney Construction. Hundreds of families donated to the campaign and many left their legacy on named gifts in the chapel. Marshall and Katherine Cymbaluk and Jeff and Jodie Cymbaluk were instrumental in the success of the chapel campaign. On December 3, 2016, Marshall challenged the DREAM auction attendees with a 90-day fund raising goal – it inspired the entire AMHS community. The St. Thomas Chapel is the keystone of the Catholic identity of AMHS and provides a place for sacramental celebrations for our students, families, and alumni. The Faith Formation Endowment was established in 2017 to support faith formation programs at AMHS such as the KAIROS retreat program, the Guatemala and Haiti mission trips, and community service projects. The fund will also provide maintenance and furnishing updates to the chapel.

Yudy Solis Moir was born and raised in Santiago, Chile. She and her family settled in Seattle where she earned degrees at the University of Washington and started teaching at Holy Cross High School in 1988 in its first year of existence. Yudy started the school trip to Spain and introduced the UW Spanish course at Holy Cross and AMHS. She and her husband John sent their two children (Caroline and John) to Holy Cross – John later became the first alum to teach at AMHS. During her time at Holy Cross and AMHS Yudy has taught hundreds of students and she particularly remembers those who came in the early years of the school. This endowment was created as a way to honor the beginning of AMHS, Holy Cross High School. The endowment fund will support the continuing Catholic education of Latino students who matriculate from our partner parish schools
Simmons Family Endowment Preston and Jill Simmons are models of giving back to the community. Not only for all of the expertise and volunteer hours they have poured into Archbishop Murphy High School, but in the Greater Snohomish County region. Preston and Jill Simmons decided to start the Simmons Family Endowment in order to support students so they can have access to an Archbishop Murphy High School education. They witnessed first hand what an impact an AMHS education can have through the experience of their two sons, PJ ’12 and Connor ’14, and their classmates.
Endowment launched in the 2016/17 school year.

Patricia (Patti) Means April 27, 1962 - October 8, 2016 Patti Means passed away in her home surrounded by her husband, siblings and best friend on October 8, 2016. Born Patricia Eileen Hoffmann in Burien, Wash., on April 27, 1962, Patti graduated from Kennedy High School in 1980. She worked at several places during her adult life, most notably at Archbishop Murphy High School, where she served as Athletics Assistant then as Director of Communications. Her daughter, Katie Johnson, graduated from AMHS in 2010. She volunteered at St. Mary Magdalen School in Everett, Wash., and at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Bothell, Wash. Her passions, beyond family and friends, included travel, reading, baking and playing piano. For more than ten years, she served as pianist for the 9am Choir at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish. We imagine her now in heaven playing piano duets with her mother, Judy. Patti was a giving, loving person who befriended everyone. She was thoughtful and devoted, and left a mark in the hearts of all she knew. The new piano in the St. Thomas Chapel has been donated by her family in her honor, as a fitting tribute to Pattiâ€™s life serving others and her dedication to AMHS.
