Director of External Advancement Stephen Dini
Thanks to the diligent efforts of our new Dean of Admission, Derek Tate, and other members of our staff, we’ve seen our student body increase by about 11% from the previous school year. Enrollment is up, and interest in our school is at an all-time high. Our ‘Crusader for a Day’ program, which hosts 8th grade students on campus, was incredibly popular during the fall recruiting season, and currently boasts a waiting list for visits. I sincerely look forward to meeting the Class of 2016.

This past fall we opened a residential boarding program (see story on page 2) and welcomed 17 boys from China, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Northern California who live full-time on the Archbishop Riordan campus. Representatives from our school have attended fairs locally and globally to recruit students, and at press time we will welcome seven students for the spring semester. We are pleased to be able to offer Archbishop Riordan as a destination for those seeking a Marianist education in San Francisco. For our local students, it is an incredible opportunity to experience classmates from different places, to better prepare them for the challenges of our world. On the following pages, you will see a new direction for Archbishop Riordan that reflects our Marianist and Catholic identities while responding to the ever-changing education landscape in the Bay Area. Take a moment to read about the new members of our faculty and staff (page 4), and the new programs on campus. There is a great energy here among students and off campus among our distinguished alumni who are doing so many incredible things after leaving Phelan Avenue. Of course, we couldn’t achieve as much success without you, our generous community of alumni, parents, and friends. Thank you for your support and your prayers. If you haven’t been to campus in a while, please come by for a visit soon. Best regards,

A NEW DAY FOR ARCHBISHOP RIORDAN
OPPORTUNITIES ABOUND IN SAN FRANCISCO’S ONLY BOARDING PROGRAM By Anthony Payne
It was a typically foggy, late July day in San Francisco and Tina Sheng, Director of Academic Services for Archbishop Riordan High School’s new Boarding Program, was making sure she had everything she needed. She had a couple bottles of water, a small box of caramel lollipops and, most importantly, a foamboard sign reading “Archbishop Riordan High School Welcomes You to San Francisco.” Sheng was on her way to the International Terminal at SFO to greet Riordan’s first boarding student in its 106-year history.
At the airport, she displayed the sign and her smile which awaited Simon Wang ’13 after his 14-hour flight from Beijing and an interminable wait in customs. Sheng, herself a one-time Beijing resident, welcomed Simon in his native Mandarin, offered him a water and took one of his bags. On the ride toward his new home, Simon was reserved, and he hesitated in using his English, anxious that he might make a mistake. That anxiety didn’t last long.
“Riordan is an ideal school to support a boarding program,” says President Patrick Daly. “Riordan’s facilities, community, location and Marianist Catholic identity are perfectly suited for what we’ve begun here.” He should know, too. Before coming to Archbishop Riordan, Daly was President of St. Bernard’s Catholic School in Eureka. There he oversaw the start of a boarding program. “At St. Bernard’s, enrollment had been down, revenue had been down. Taking on boarders made sense as a means to help with those issues. I had the freedom to see what made for a successful program. Almost immediately, the school and the community started seeing the benefits.”
When Daly became Riordan’s president, his goal was to get the school on sure footing in both the short- and long-term. “I saw that a boarding program is a great way to help a school grow and improve. You’re going to add more life to the student body and add revenue that will help finance improvements to the the campus and fund scholarships for local students.” Daly sees Riordan’s inherent strengths as key factors that will ensure the boarding program’s success. “No other boarding school that I’ve seen can offer anything close to our great Resource Specialist Program, strong athletic department, and location in an international city like San Francisco. Add the fact that our recent alumni have gone to some of the best universities in the country, and you can see why Riordan will become a destination for students from across the US and around the world.”
A CRUSADER WELCOME
Over the first few days of August, more than a dozen boys, reserved and nervous like Simon, deboarded long flights at SFO. They were welcomed there by Sheng and Anthony Payne, Director of Residence. It wasn’t long before the boys’ fellow Crusaders gave them a reception worthy of brothers.
ARCHBISHOP RIORDAN HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI MAGAZINE - FUTURE
During their Orientation Week, Scott Souza, director of Riordan’s renowned music program, invited the boarding students to meet the musicians, who were hard at work preparing in advance of the school year. The boarders filed along the wall of the Music Room, already packed to the gills with 105 boys and their instruments. The newest Crusaders introduced themselves, one by one, to the assembled woodwinds, brass, and percussion who gave each of them roof-raising ovations. The LIFE Team, a Campus Ministry leadership group, toured the boarders around Riordan’s campus. The Crusader Brothers, a school mentor program, played their first rounds of miniature golf with them. “The family atmosphere at Riordan is one of the school’s greatest assets, and it definitely helped the boarding students feel like a part of the community from day one,” Payne said. “As we took the boys to the Prep Shop to pick up their Riordan gear, we passed a group of Riordan moms. Before I knew what was happening, they were all giving the boys big hugs.” Prior to the start of the school year, the boarding students shared breakfast with the faculty and staff, learned the alma mater on a bus ride with upper-classmen,
“The teachers are so nice,” boarding student Joe Zhang ’14 says with more than a little surprise in his voice.
IN THE FAMILY SPIRIT
Alex Datoc, Director of Campus Ministry, explains, “Welcoming the boys like that is part of what’s unique to a Marianist school. One of the Characteristics of Marianist Education is that we educate in the family spirit.” Posters bearing the five Characteristics of Marianist Education hang from the wall in every classroom, and one such poster is now pinned to the corkboard the boarding students pass as they return home from class each day. It is here in McCluskey Hall, named in honor of Riordan’s first principal, that a new family is being formed. As much time as the boarders spent during Orientation Week getting to know their new school and their new home, they spent just as much time getting to know each other. The faculty, staff and students at Riordan created that figurative home, the welcoming community, but part of what made starting a boarding program here an attractive proposition was that a literal home already existed here too.
could not possibly be stronger, but to get the third floor up to code and comfortable for the 44 students we will eventually house took significant work,” Daly said. “This is where these boys live now, so our goal was to create a true home for them.” Starting just before graduation day in 2011, construction crews went to work. “From the new carpeting, to the modern dorm furniture and the state-of-the art wireless connectivity, everything in the hall was built specifically for our residential students,” said Tony Payne. The restrooms were given a stylish, modern remodel and what used to be the Marianists’ personal chapel is now the boarders’ common room furnished with couches and chairs, a refrigerator and television.
dreaming big, but he’s got the skills to make the Junior Varsity. His American teammates make inevitable comparisons to Yao Ming, China’s most famous professional basketball player and a national hero in his native land, but Liu shrugs them off. “My favorite player is Dwyane Wade,” he says. Simon Wang, the program’s first arrival, is playing Junior Varsity soccer. He’s no longer the quiet, reserved boy Tina Sheng picked up in late July. Like any other Crusader, he’s focused and intense on the field of play. Like the other boarding students, he’s now part of the Riordan brotherhood.
When asked to describe the dormitory he now calls home, sophomore Tony Wang says with a smile on his face, “It’s awesome.” “In order for this to be a successful program, it will have to grow not only by reaching out to more international markets, but by raising Riordan’s profile among American families looking at boarding schools,” President Daly says. His goal is for the boarders to be split 50-50 between domestic and international students. “When we reach capacity on the third floor, it’ll be time to remodel the first and second as well. That whole wing will comfortably house seventy boys and five to eight residential staff. We will continue to grow well into the future.”
“RIORDAN IS AN IDEAL SCHOOL TO START AND SUPPORT A BOARDING PROGRAM” — President Patrick Daly
When the numbers of priests and religious peaked in the 1960s and ’70s, Marianists occupied every room on the second and third floor of the Riordan’s southernmost wing. As the years passed, fewer fathers and brothers resided at 175 Phelan Avenue and the school converted the second floor into the counseling wing we know today. After the 2010-2011 school year, the Society of Mary reassigned Riordan’s remaining Marianists to new positions. President Daly knew he had the optimal space to house boarding students, but not without significant renovations. “Riordan’s foundation is built into the bedrock and the plaster walls
Now after a typical school day, you can find the boarders in any of the places you’d find any other Riordan student. Joe Zhang might be found in the gymnasium, playing on one of the school’s three ping-pong tables against both other boarders and day students. Young Lin ’14 could be getting or giving Spanish help at a study session. Tony Wang ’14, Steven Zhu ’14 and Milo Lewis ’15 are probably on the football field helping the athletic trainer tend to the team. Henry Liu ’14 represents the boarders on Riordan’s Student Council. Many of the boys worked hard to prepare for the winter sports season. “My dream is to play in the NBA,” says Mike Liu ’14, one of those boys.

Compassion and inclusion are key areas of focus for Sara Oletti, another member of the Resource Specialist Program team. Ms. Oletti teaches Reading and Study Skills to RSP Freshmen and assists RSP students from all levels. She is currently pursuing a post-graduate degree in Special Education with a focus on Behavioral Analysis. Mary Dalton has joined the faculty along side her father, Robert Dalton, a graduate of ARHS and long-time English instructor. Ms. Dalton teaches English and provides support in the Resource Specialist Program. She also teaches Reading and Study Skills to the Freshmen in the FOCUS Reading Program. After graduating from Saint Mary’s College with a degree in English, Ms. Dalton went on to obtain a Master of Fine Arts in English Literature and Creative Writing from Mills College.
Everyone is rooting for Richard Sweeney as Head Coach of ARHS’s football team. A native San Franciscan and graduate of Santa Clara University, Coach Sweeney brings years of talent and experience as both a teacher and a coach. He played defensive back for the Santa Clara Broncos for three years and went on to lead many successful teams. During Coach Sweeney’s 23-year collegiate coaching career, his teams won nine conference championships and made eight national playoff appearances. Matt Gallegos not only runs ARHS’s library, but also provides leadership as the Head Varsity baseball coach. Mr. Gallegos was drafted by the New York Yankees, played five years of minor league baseball, and taught and coached for many years at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory. He was the founder and head coach of the Peninsula Diamonds Fast Pitch Softball Organization. He also has extensive knowledge of the social sciences and can locate information almost as fast as the internet.
Mickey Modena is new to the Finance Office, but her knowledge of Riordan runs deep—her husband is a graduate of the Class of 1955. Her varied experience working for a bank, for a sign company and later for a neurosurgery practice helps her navigate busy days in the ARHS Finance Office. Vicki Terheyden is the new Director of Communications and resident marketing guru. Prior to Riordan, Ms. Terheyden was a communications and marketing consultant in San Francisco where she worked on behalf of education, health care, professional services, hospitality and non-profit clients. A native San Franciscan, she attended Catholic schools from age five to 21, and is excited to be part of the Riordan team. New Director of External Advancement Stephen Dini has a background in sports, business and education that is a winning combination for Riordan. Previously, he served as Assistant Director of Athletic Fundraising and was the Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach at Notre Dame de Namur University, and was a Regional Development Officer and Head Lacrosse Coach at UC Berkeley. He has also held several corporate bank positions. Mr. Dini is a graduate of Chico State University and the Dunn School, a boarding school near Santa Barbara. He has been instrumental in helping to launch the program here at ARHS.
Part teacher, part parent and part mentor, Tina Sheng has taken the first boarding students under her wing as Director of Academic Services for the program. Ms. Sheng graduated from Stanford University’s STEP program with a Master of Arts in Secondary Education. Originally from Nanjing, China, she attended Beijing Teacher’s College before moving to the U.S. Ms. Sheng will also teach Riordan’s first mandarin class next semester. Tony Payne is also a core member of the boarding program team as the Director of Residence, where he manages all aspects of boarding school life. Prior to Riordan, Mr. Payne served as Resident Ministry Intern at the University of San Francisco, and also as a Resident Assistant at his alma mater, Boston College. Mr. Payne also holds a teaching credential in English from Notre Dame de Namur University. Riordan alumnus Tom Martinez ’84 rounds out the boarding program team as Director of Security and Weekend Activities. A former officer with the LAPD, Mr. Martinez is a seasoned athlete and has coached a range of sports, from mixed martial arts to football. He also currently serves at the Varsity Quarterback Coach for the Crusaders. We finish our tour of new faces with the invaluable members of the IT Department. As head of Academic Technology at ARHS, Dr. Steve Johnston has forged a fascinating career path that has crossed the realms both of psychology and technology. Dr. Johnston earned a Masters and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, and has since worked to merge computer applications and academic technology. His experience in online design, marketing, and web design, in conjunction with his knowledge of how people interact with technology, has led him to explore to new technological approaches to education. John Wu provides additional technology support and can trouble-shoot in an instant. A graduate of UC Davis, Mr. Wu not only studied Biology and Chinese, but also gleaned incomparable computer skills that contribute to ARHS’s technological advancement. The many new additions to the ARHS staff and faculty reveal a wealth of of talent and achievement, and will enrich the existing outstanding body of professionals. Together, we will propel a great school into the future.

Class of 2011 Bids Farewell to ARHS Archbishop Riordan High School presented diplomas to 108 seniors on Saturday, May 28, 2011 in the James Lindland Theatre. President Patrick Daly and Principal Kevin Asbra handed out the diplomas. Samson Fong, Cameron Mau, David Capistrano and Alejandro Sanchez were valedictorians. David Capistrano served as Valedictorian speaker. The Salutatorian speaker was Student Body President Jordan Dougherty.
An excerpt from David Capistrano’s valedictorian address:
Congratulations to the Class of 2011!
Each of us has our own memories that we hold close to our hearts and that make us grin when we think of them. We all have our stories to tell. Many of us shared our hearts during Kairos; we had the opportunity to lay everything down – all our guards and defenses – and realize the very special pervading love that thrives in our school community and in our families. We had the opportunity to reflect not only on our relationships with others, but also our relationships with ourselves and with God – what they truly meant. We recognized that when all else is lost, love remains. Fear may fill the world, but it doesn’t have to fill our hearts, especially when we know we are loved. At Riordan, we’ve met many great people who are ready to be our friends, to teach and mentor, and to support us. We’ve all been touched in one way or another by the Crusader spirit and the brotherly love that permeates throughout this school.
Valedictorians from the Class of 2011 from L to R: Samson Fong (Northwestern), Cameron Mau (UCLA), David Capistrano (UC Berkeley), and Alejandro Sanchez (CalTech).

THE CRUSADER MARCHING BAND
PRIDE AND PERFORMANCE AT A HIGHER LEVEL The Band continued to display their immense ability winning the Most Outstanding Award at The Pistahan Parade, a celebration of Filipino arts and culture, on August 13th, 2011. Concluding August was the Fiesta Del Mar Band Review, which show-cased The Band’s extreme aptitude as musicians by receiving 1st Place in 4A Bands. Only a few weeks later, on September 9th, they performed at a home-game against Sacred
In July of 2011, The Crusader Marching Band was chosen by U.S. Representative Jackie Speier (CA-12th District) to perform at the Independence Day Parade in our nation’s capital. Riordan was one of two California high schools picked to participate in the festivities, and delivered a high-caliber performance in intense Washington, D.C. humidity during a fast-paced parade. As a result, The Band captured the attention of a national audience and received much acclaim. With the school year barely in motion, The Crusader Marching Band again showcased excellence by participating in a number of public events, winning awards and earning top placements. The journey across the country was followed by a short trip across The Bay, to Oakland, where The Band performed at the half-time show for the Raiders’ pre-season opener on August 11th. The Crusader Band marched on the football field and played four songs in front of thousands of Raiders’ fans. And it wasn’t their first show for a professional audience, having played in last year’s Giants World Series Championship Parade.
DRAMA DIRECTOR REFLECTS ON A SUMMER OF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT By Valerie O’Riordan
By Mary Dalton 2011 marks yet another year that The Crusader Marching Band proves its superior talent. Backed by natural music leaders and dedicated parent-boosters, The Band is comprised of boys who work together as a gifted team. Many of the members of the marching band did not pick up an instrument until their freshmen year at ARHS, and it was under the instruction of Scott Souza, Director of Bands, that the students developed their abilities as musicians.
Heart Preparatory Atherton, then moved on to the Antioch Review of Champions, where they were awarded 2nd Place in Class B Bands. In October, the Band played in a series of non-stop events during Columbus Day weekend. On October 8th, for the first time in full uniform, The Band gave a half-time performance at a crucial, homecoming football game against Sacred Heart. The next day, they marched in the Italian Heritage Parade in San Francisco. On Monday, October 10th, The Band then went on to compete in the Fleet Week Band Challenge, which was sponsored by the
ARCHBISHOP RIORDAN HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI MAGAZINE - FUTURE
United States Marine Corps Band. The Riordan Band placed third in this competition and was awarded a prize of $3,000. Band Director and music mentor, Scott Souza, is beyond thrilled with the music prowess and maturity of this year’s ensemble. “The Crusader Marching Band is amazing this year. I throw things at them, and they step up each time with incredible results,” said Souza. I am so proud of them, their accomplishments, their terrific work ethic and their continued growth. I’ve said it before, but I have the best job on campus: I get to come to work each day to make music. It doesn’t get any better than that. The Band students at Riordan are fine young musicians, and they allow me to have fun in my job.” As the school year marches on, the entire Riordan community looks forward to what The Crusader Marching Band will bring in 2012 and beyond.

Last spring I was awarded a fellowship from the San Francisco Branch of the English Speaking Union, and over the summer I became a student again, eventually performing at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Indeed, three weeks of collaboration at The Globe inspired my own Shakespearean journey at Archbishop Riordan, and I look forward to sharing what I learned with my classes and our audience.
styles, costumes, sets, props, musicians) are created as close to what was done in Shakespeare’s day as possible. Once inspired, I envisioned the transformation of our ARHS proscenium stage into Shakespeare’s Globe, complete with columns, trap doors, an “inner above” for the Renaissance musicians, and an area for our own standing audience section. I am now in conversation with my technical director, toward that goal.
My journey started and ended in London, with three weeks in between for a jaunt through Europe with my family, followed by five solo days in Stratford-Upon-Avon, the quaint town where William Shakespeare was born and is buried.
I must express my thanks to the English Speaking Union and the ARHS administration for supporting me in this amazing professional development opportunity. As a follow up, I plan to attend a three-day conference in January at UC Davis entitled “Shakespeare Works When Shakespeare Plays,” although nothing compares to the joy of studying at Shakespeare’s Globe in London. It was a dream come true.
“Teaching Shakespeare Through Performance” was an intensive three-week program, in which 18 theatre and English teachers from around the country became happily ensconced in all that is Shakespeare. Each day we took acting class, studied voice and movement, improvised, learned about Renaissance influences and Globe history, and reveled in Shakespeare’s magical world of words and emotion. We lived in the dorms of the London School of Economics, a five-minute walk to The Globe. The 18 of us did nearly everything together: meals, rehearsals, free time, field trips, and watching theatre. Many of us even became “groundling” audience members (the cheap, standing tickets at The Globe), positioned at the very edge of the stage and looking up at actors performing just inches away. It was unforgettable. In the midst of this profound professional development experience, I decided that next fall I will direct and produce an “original practice” production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Original practice is a production concept that Shakespeare’s Globe embraces, wherein all approaches to the work (acting

PALEO PURSUITS ANCIENT LIFE, MODERN SCIENCE By Victoria Terheyden Geology and math teacher Ben LeFebvre discovered his passion for all things ancient when he was nine years old after reading a book about fossil hunting in the Gobi Desert. “From that day on I was hooked,” said LeFebvre. “Geology was made for me.” After earning his master’s in geology, which required him to complete thesis research in central Nevada, 40 miles from the nearest paved road, he became a seismic and geological consultant to the public and private sectors.
“It doesn’t feel like a job to come to Riordan each day and share my passion for Geology with our students, while at the same time getting them to think about current environmental and land use issues.”
After a few summers at the WDC, he is already on this path. First up is the newly-established Paleontology Club on campus where he serves as moderator. Students will be trained in basic vertebrate fossil preparation techniques, and contribute to furthering research at the WDC. In the future, you might even find Riordan students in the trenches, working side by side to discover the make-up of the ancient world.
However, LeFebvre couldn’t ignore a calling to teach and began his academic career at City College in San Francisco. Now in his 12th year teaching at Archbishop Riordan, he relishes the opportunity to bring fossils to Phelan Avenue. “It doesn’t feel like a job to come to Riordan each day and share my passion for Geology with our students, while at the same time getting them to think about current environmental and land use issues. We may be looking at things that are hundreds of millions of years old, but there is always a connection to today’s ecology.” Bridging old and new is exactly what LeFebvre has done for the past three summers at the Wyoming Dinosaur Center (WDC), site of a working fossil quarry site and modern museum in Two horns from a triceratops, part of the skull Thermopolis, assembly in the lab. Wyoming. He spends about three weeks there every summer preparing fossils and molds in the lab, and working in the field excavating new dinosaur material. “The museum also has a program where kids can do a ‘dig for a day,’ and it is incredible to see youngsters finding their first dinosaur bone,” said LeFebvre. “My entire experience in Thermopolis, it’s too much fun, actually. But the most important thing is how my work there relates to what I do in the classroom. If I can give students a sense of how science works, and the methods and processes to studying ancient earth, then I’ve done my job.”

LEGENDARY RIORDAN ATHLETIC DIRECTOR LOVED WINNING BUT NOT AT COST OF GOOD SPORT By Valerie Schmalz
Reprinted with permission from Catholic San Francisco
As Ron Isola tells it, he almost didn’t go to Archbishop Riordan High School. It came down to a misdelivered acceptance letter, says the man who coached varsity basketball during a decade of dominance and whose name is synonymous among generations of parents for the grade-school summer camp, Camp Crusader.
“The letter for Riordan had gone to the lady next door. In those days, you didn’t call the school,” said Isola, recalling those anxious days in 1957. “Finally the lady came over, and my mom said, ‘Here’s your letter. You’re going to Riordan.’ ” For more than five decades, Isola has been associated with the boys’ Catholic high school on Phelan Avenue: First as a student, graduating in 1961; then returning to teach and coach from 1967 until today. He retired in June as athletic director, a job he had held since 1979 as well as for a four-year stint in the early ’70s. “The whole family grew up here,” said Isola, whose only son Jeff for the past few years has coached and taught history alongside his father.” I remember when I was coaching basketball and Jeff was 3 or 4 years old, out there, throwing up shots at half time. You don’t get a family deal like that and not appreciate it.” From 1979 to 1994, Isola coached Riordan’s varsity basketball teams as they won 368 games and lost just 110. The Crusaders had a league-record 44-game win streak in the West Catholic Athletic League and did not lose a home game from 1983 to 1989. Riordan’s basketball team won the Central Coast
Section title in 1994. From 1995 to 2010, Isola coached varsity baseball, and this summer he ran baseball training at Riordan. “I never feel like I go to work,” said Isola, sitting in his office near the school gym as coaches and students came and went without knocking. No one knocks, Isola said, in response to a question – “It’s a tradition.” Another tradition is Camp Crusader, a grade-school-age summer camp started by Isola and fellow coaches in 1973. About 12,000 kids have attended the four-week camp, whose ubiquitous plastic yellow, white and purple stadium cups are awarded for pee-wee golf and bowling in the cafeteria, street hockey, soccer and basketball. The cups turn up everywhere, including at Holy Cross Cemetery holding flowers, Isola said. When his wife had to call an ambulance for him late at night after he finally admitted a baseball injury to his spleen was too painful to bear a few years back, the first thing the paramedic said coming in the door was, “Hey coach, remember me, from Camp Crusader?”

“I call it the anti-camp,” said Isola. Twenty-five years ago Isola’s father built the electricpowered windmill for miniature golf. Isola cribbed ideas for the wooden props that make up the course during a trip to Lake Tahoe. The owner almost threw Isola off the course afraid he was competition, Isola recalls. The first week of camp with 200 plus kids in 1973, Isola and his fellow coaches had laid out drills for each of the sports. “After two days, we said, ’this is awful. The kids are bored to death.’ Then we came up with this idea — why don’t we just organize them and let them play and let them have fun and be kids? We’ve been doing that for 38 years.” “We used to be fifth through the eighth grade. Then when my son was going into second grade my wife said you’re getting him out of the house, you’re moving it down to second grade,” Isola said. “Parents always say it’s such a wonderful camp. I always say, well it’s pretty hard to screw up recess.” Looking back, Isola said, “I think Riordan’s always been a fun place to coach at
A celebration of Ron’s retirement and commitment to Archbishop Riordan will take place Saturday, May 19. More details to come.

“I WOULD LIKE TO BE REMEMBERED AS SOMEONE WHO WAS COMPETITIVE BUT HOPEFULLY THE KIDS HAD A GOOD TIME PLAYING FOR US.” — Ron Isola ’61 because I’ve been really fortunate to work with some very wonderful people.” In 2005, in an article about Isola’s induction into the San Francisco Preps Hall of Fame, San Francisco Chronicle sports writer Mitch Stephens described him as the “coach who helped Riordan dominate (the West Catholic Athletic League) like no other school.” Today, Isola sees youth and high school sports as veering out of control, turning something that should be fun into a business. In terms of high school sports, Isola said he would like to be remembered as “somebody that enjoyed athletics and kept them in perspective. Ron Isola ’61 received his Golden Diploma on October 29, 2011.
“We had some really good basketball teams in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. We had some very talented kids who played for us,” said Isola. “I would like to be thought of as someone who realized when you have great players, you become a brilliant coach.” “One guy said to me, ’With all these championships, how do you handle the pressure? You are one step away from college.’ I said, ’Well, no, now, I’m one step up from CYO.’ ” “I think we tend to take ourselves much too serious,” said Isola. “I would like to be remembered as someone who was competitive but hopefully the kids had a good time playing for us.”

LAX Arrives at Riordan
Crusader Lacrosse Team to Enter WCAL Play
The oldest sport in North America is Riordan’s newest sports venture. Launching this spring, the inaugural 2012 lacrosse season will boast a junior varsity squad, with plans to add a varsity team in 2013. Riordan will compete in the WCAL, in addition to playing against other schools in the Bay Counties League (BCL) such as University, Lick Wilmerding, and the Urban School. Because this is the first year Riordan has offered lacrosse, the WCAL will allow seniors to play at the junior varsity level. Lacrosse is the fasting growing team sport in the country. Only 116 high school teams existed in California in 2004 when lacrosse was sanctioned by the California Interscholastic Federation. Entering the 2012 season, the number of teams has more than doubled to 230. Massachusetts native Mike Sheridan will take the helm as the first head coach of the LAX Crusaders. Sheridan graduated from Brown University in 2000 where he played lacrosse all four years and served as Varsity Captain his senior year. He has coached and led lacrosse camps at high schools in the Bay Area for more than a decade, and served as Head Coach at Marin Academy when they won the BCL league title in 2003. When not on the field, Sheridan operates Sling It!, a lacrosse equipment and apparel company, which he founded in 2003. Sheridan expects 20-40 young men will try out for the Riordan team this year. “The first few years of the program will obviously be a time for our players to develop fundamental lacrosse skills in a highly competitive environment,” said Sheridan. “From what I have observed from other sports on campus, the work ethic of Crusader athletes is solid, and I am confident that the lacrosse program will grow quickly.”

A Message From the
Director of External Advancement Dear Friends of ARHS, Thank you to all who have so generously supported Archbishop Riordan High School this past year and in previous years. Your financial support allows Archbishop Riordan to continue in its mission to offer a Catholic Marianist education to young men in the Bay Area. We are blessed to have you as part of the Archbishop Riordan community. All gifts support students and faculty, and the future of our school. Every dollar counts, and the majority of every dollar raised goes to financial assistance for students and families in need. With more than 50% of Archbishop Riordan students receiving financial assistance and an additional 10% of students receiving sponsorships from outside agencies, we truly spend almost every dollar to ensure that ARHS remains accessible to all young men in San Francisco. For the 2011-2012 school year Archbishop Riordan awarded $1,400,000 in financial aid to 50% of the student body. Each year, help is needed to bridge the gap between tuition and financial aid. This year the gap between school revenue and expenses amounts to $2,450 per student. We need your help to bridge the gap to meet the needs of every student at Riordan.
Ways to Support Archbishop Riordan High School Unrestricted Gifts Unrestricted gifts provide school leadership with the flexibility to address the highest priorities as those needs occur. Unrestricted giving is the heart of the ARHS Annual Fund each year as these gifts signal donors’ broad support of ARHS.
Gifts of Securities Donations of Stocks or Securities are tax deductible based on market value, and donors can avoid capital gains taxes on appreciated stock. Gifts of Real Estate Real property, either in entirety or in part, can be deeded to ARHS. It is even possible to arrange a sizable tax deduction by deeding a home or farm to the school now, while continuing to occupy the property for life. All real estate transactions are subject to inspection and final approval by the Archdiocese of San Francisco.

Outright Gifts Outright gifts include funds from cash, checks or credit cards. Gifts can be made online or mailed to the school. All outright gifts of cash are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law, up to the maximum of 50 percent of your adjusted gross income. Any excess can be carried over and deducted over as many as five subsequent years. Matching Gifts Many employers offer corporate matching gift programs. This is a tremendous benefit that can double or sometimes even triple an employee’s gift to ARHS. Please check with your Human Resources Department for matching gift forms and programs.
2010 - 2011 Annual Report Information listed in the Annual Report reflects the fiscal year July 1, 2010 - June 30, 2011.
As you know Archbishop Riordan relies on the Annual Fund to manage expenses that tuition alone cannot cover. This past fiscal year of 2010/2011 our supporters helped raise more than $900,000 on behalf of Archbishop Riordan. I sat down with a Riordan alum a few months ago, and asked him candidly why he gives to Riordan. He said, “I give because I want other boys to have the same incredible experience that I did at Riordan. You get to a certain level, and you have to send the elevator down for someone else.”
Endowment Gifts Donor contributions to an endowment fund become a long-term and predictable source of operating income for ARHS. As such, endowment gifts provide invaluable strength and support for the ARHS mission.
Capital Projects Donor gifts to capital projects may be designated for a specific area such as athletic facilities, dorms, classrooms or campus infrastructure.
Thank you again for your generous support. God Bless You,
The Archbishop Riordan Heritage Society Members of this society have thoughtfully included ARHS in their estate plans or wills. These gifts of forethought and generosity take many forms: bequests, living trusts, or life income plans, which name Archbishop Riordan High School as a beneficiary in an estate plan or will. If you would like more information about gifts of any size or form, please contact Stephen Dini at (415)586-8200 ext. 264 or email@example.com.

Memorial and Honorary Tribute Gifts A gift to the Memorial Fund can help perpetuate the values and ideals that guided a loved one’s life. Gifts provide a tribute in memory of a loved one’s passing or may honor a person during his/ her lifetime. All contributions to the memorial program help fund financial aid for deserving families, assuring the continuance of ARHS’s legacy of inclusiveness and diversity.
If you are interested in supporting or learning more about Archbishop Riordan’s Annual Fund, endowment funds, or capital projects, please feel free to contact me, and I would be pleased to discuss all the wonderful ways that you can support our school.

Dedication of Bro. John McCluskey, S.M. Residence Hall and Chapel in Honor of Fr. Thomas Seagrave ’60 Alumni, students, faculty, administration, and friends of Riordan welcomed Bishop William J. Justice, Bishop Thomas A. Daly, and Monsignor James T. Tarantino to campus on October 14 to dedicate the newly renovated Bro. John McCluskey, S.M. Residence Hall and Chapel of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Honored for his dedication to Riordan and service as first principal of the school, Bro. McCluskey was one of the “original” boarders, having lived on campus in classrooms 101 and 102 prior to the completion of the Marianist residence. Like the new boarding students, he took meals in the cafeteria and often explored San Francisco. “My uncle would have been so proud to see this boarding program open, and to see Riordan offer a Marianist education to students from around the world in San Francisco,” said Pat McCluskey, Bro. McCluskey’s nephew and retired Riordan English and Religious Studies teacher. The Chapel of the Assumption has always been a special place for reflection and prayer on campus. A group of alumni from the Class of 1960 sponsored the gift of renovations—new flooring, refinished pews, fresh paint, and new windows over the altar—in honor of a distinguished member of their class, Fr. Thomas Seagrave, who every day lives out the Marianist mission to serve others.
The day began with mass celebrated in the Lindland Theatre. Pictured above (l-r) are Deacon John Norris, Monsignor Tarantino, Bishop Justice, Bishop Daly, and Fr. Thomas Seagrave ’60.

FROM LINDLAND TO THE LIGHTS OF BROADWAY The Life of a Riordan Theatre Alumnus By Victoria Terheyden Dominic Nolfi ’96 knows a thing or two about the Four Seasons. During a recent trip out west to visit his family, Nolfi sat down to talk about Riordan Drama, his career on Broadway, and multiple roles in the Tony award-winning musical Jersey Boys. Your mom Janine Nolfi is the Dance Instructor at Mercy High School. Does performance run in the family? DN: It does. We’ve got quite a history in fact. My grandfather, Adrian Nolfi, was a singer at the Onyx Club on 52nd Street in New York City, which was also known as “Swing Street USA.” This club was actually located on the same street as the August Wilson Theatre, where Jersey Boys premiered on Broadway. I guess it was providential that I would eventually perform there. My brother Dario Nolfi ’97 is also an actor. He and I both starred in the European tour of Grease and got to travel together which was really fun. I met my wife Sonia, who is a choreographer, during that tour. Then there is my mom who taught dance and theater at Mercy High School for years.
“... shoot for the stars and keep pushing yourself. Work hard and embrace your talents.” — Dominic Nolfi ’96 I understand that both you and Dario worked with your mom during Riordan theatre collaborations with Mercy. What was it like to work with her? DN: She is really high energy, and I was having as much fun as everyone else was having. We worked well together, and she would preview some of the choreography workouts at home.
What are you fondest memories from Riordan Drama?
I had always had an interest in drama, and wanted to come to Riordan because it had one of the strongest programs of any high school in San Francisco. In elementary school I was part of the Young People’s Teen Musical Theatre Company and met the Greenbaums who were students here at the time. They got me interested in Riordan, and I thank them for that.
DN: I was the original understudy they hired, and because of that I covered every male role in the show. After three years of playing seven roles, it was wonderful to concentrate on Tommy DeVito and get to own it. I played that role for three years. It was a rich character too, which is rare in musical theatre. Tommy is a very colorful and generous guy, and we have become friends through my work.
I heard you have a new baby. Is she musical?
How did you decide to pursue a career in acting?
Tell me about starring in Jersey Boys.
ou is y
There is actually so much more I want to accomplish, and I am always setting higher goals for myself. I learned this from my time at Riordan—shoot for the stars and keep pushing yourself. Work hard and embrace your talents. Wrestling taught me a lot, too. I was a wrestler under Coach Anastasio, and learned the importance of working with a team, but also how to perform on your own. I carry that with me every time I go into an audition; it is you and only you who can make it work. I couldn’t have asked for better training.
DN: There are too many to count, because we did so many great shows such as Guys and Dolls, Flowers for Algernon and My Fair Lady. Bro. Gary Morris, S.M. directed me, and he is still a great friend of the family.
DN: Though I wasn’t positive this was my path, I knew that if I was going to give professional acting a shot, I needed to train for it. That is where Riordan came into play— they teach you how to work hard. I received a scholarship to Boston Conservatory and later received a BFA in Theatre there. It was a fantastic experience, but really pushed me as a performer and made me a better actor.
DN: Well, I just wrapped up Jersey Boys, and I’m actually workshopping a new musical about the 1960’s songwriter named Bert Burns. We are just getting started but hope to debut the show in the near future. I will keep you posted.

to see the show: Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard, Kevin Costner and Jack Nicholson to name a few. Many have come back stage after the show to meet the cast. That was pretty fun. What do you think about the Lucky ’13 Alumni Show (set for Labor Day Weekend, 2013)? DN: The potential of bringing together a very talented group of actors who all got their start on stage in the Lindland Theatre sounds like a lot of fun. I am looking forward to it. There is a huge tradition of Riordan Drama in San Francisco, and I know it is something the entire city will be excited about.
I’ve also gotten to perform for a number of well-known actors and directors who came %6,7WXYHIRXWERH&ERH(MVIGXSV7GSXX7SY^E[MXL2SP½HYVMRKE[SVOWLSTEX1IVG],MKL7GLSSP7*

San Francisco Mourns Death of Firefighter Vincent Perez ’81 Lt. Vincent Perez ’81 and fellow Engine Company 26 firefighter Anthony Valerio died valiantly last summer while battling a blaze in the Diamond Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. The death of both men is a heartbreaking loss to their families, the SFFD and to the City of San Francisco. Born and raised in the Mission District and Bernal Heights, Lt. Perez entered the SFFD in 1990 after serving as a Deputy Sheriff in Alameda County. He previously served his Country as a member of the U.S. Marine Corp. In one of the many eulogies given at Lt. Perez’s funeral on June 10th at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Tom O'Connor, president of the San Francisco firefighters union, spoke about Lt. Perez’s passion for working with the community, and dedication to the job. “He had a big heart and unbounded capacity to help the downtrodden," said O’Connor, like “Mother Teresa with a siren.” Lt. Perez will be dearly missed by his family and a close network of friends from all stages of his life. In memory of this fallen hero and his ultimate sacrifice on behalf of the safety of the people of San Francisco, Archbishop Riordan has established the Vincent Perez ’81 Memorial Scholarship.

Bro. James Dods, S.M. and Fr. Jack Russi, S.M. ’57 Enter Eternal Rest The Archbishop Riordan Community is saddened by the passing of two Marianists, Bro. James Dods and Fr. John “Jack” Russi ’57, who served our school at multiple points throughout their lives.
A Firm, Fair and Friendly Leader James “Jim” Dods met the Marianists at his alma mater Saint Louis School in Honolulu, Hawaii and decided to enter the novitiate after attending a Marianist retreat. After graduating from Chaminade University in 1962 he went on to work in a number of Catholic schools, including Saint Louis School, St. Anthony’s in Wailuku, Maui, Serra High School in Gardena, California, a school in Yokohama, Japan, and Archbishop Riordan. During his 15 years at Archbishop Riordan, Bro. Jim served as a teacher, guidance director and academic dean, and later as an interim principal from 2001 until 2004. After stints in Hawaii, he had to trade in his aloha shirts for a crisp white dress shirt, a black tie and his famous black coat sweater with a zipper for work on Phelan Avenue. Fr. Tim Eden ’63 remembers him as someone who gave 100 percent to everything he did and took his community responsibilities seriously. If Bro. Jim was in charge of cleaning a guest room, “you could eat food off the floor,” Fr. Tim said. “He was very devoted to the Society of Mary.” “Bro. Dods truly embodied the spirit of the Brotherhood,” said Director of Campus Ministry Alex Datoc ’87. “When I was a student he was there to guide you and make sure you were doing the right things but also let you know—in his own kind and gentle way—who was in charge.”
Steward of the Community Following his graduation from Chaminade University, Fr. Jack Russi ’57 began a long career as a Catholic educator, first as a teacher at his alma mater, Archbishop Riordan. Fr. Jack spent years as a teacher, counselor, chaplain and president at Archbishop Mitty High School, and as Principal of Saint Louis School. He would later retuned to Riordan in 2002 and spend five years as a teacher and chaplain. Riordan Counselor Sr. Joy Giovannoni, csj credits Fr. Jack for guiding her to Riordan. Having known each other from their days at St. Cecilia’s grammar school, Fr. Jack reached out to her when she was back in San Francisco and encouraged her to come to Riordan. “That was so much like Jack. He always was trying to take care of his friends,” recalls Sr. Joy. Fr. Jack’s colleagues and friends at Riordan fondly remember his devotion to building community by attending retreats, helping students and families, serving on boards, as well as conducting weddings, baptisms and funerals for all the people that he knew. His generosity earned him friends in high places, too. Co-Founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak, once pulled up in front of the school in a Hummer to take Fr. Jack out to lunch.

It surprised no one when Fr. Jack was appointed provincial of the former Marianist Province of the Pacific in 1997, a role in which he would serve until the four American provinces merged in 2002 to form the new Marianist Province of the United States. Fr. Jack’s leadership was vital during the transition.
