One Man’s Journey Jim Martin ’70

Annual Report 2017 - 2018

“Our Lady of Victory, Pray for Us.” There was a moment of clarity during ”March Madness” this year when the New York Times reported on the history of success Catholic colleges enjoyed in the tournament. As our Augustinian sister school Villanova University claimed another basketball title, I couldn’t help but reflect on how that rich tradition of mind, body and spirit plays out.

In many ways athletes have a ministry. They are role models for others. They are on a spiritual journey. Last year even Pope Francis hosted a Vatican conference, “Sport at the Service of Humanity.” As the Times reported, Villanova’s president, the Rev. Peter M. Donohue, hosts an opening Mass for athletes every year, where he reminds them they are ambassadors for the university’s mission. “To have our charism move on,” he said, using a Greek word for spirit, “the banner needs to be carried.”

Alumni of Catholic leagues smile as they remember two teams praying before the start of any contest, both asking Mary in unison for divine intervention on their behalf. The Times also quoted Jesuit Rev. James Martin, “St. Ignatius of Loyola is praying for all these schools. Even Villanova.”

So next time you join classmates, parents, faculty, alumni and friends supporting the Cougars, remember, you are not just cheering for victory, but for our mission, to inspire hearts to unite, minds to inquire, and hands to serve.

He then concluded that Catholic education’s historic commitment to sports derives from demographics. Several decades ago, many American Catholics were working-class urbanites, clustered in cities — New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco. “Many of our schools were founded to serve immigrants and the working class — Catholics unable to get into other schools,” Martin said. I would suggest that today athletics goes beyond demographics, or even winning for its own sake. We are fortunate at Austin Prep to field teams of young men and women that earn more than their share of hardware.


James Hickey, Ph.D. P’22, ’23, ’24 Headmaster

Yet championships are not an end in itself. Rather they are by-products of an intentional focus on learning the values and habits that sports teach. Self-sacrifice. Sharing. Discipline. Empathy. Dealing with disappointment. Grit. The list is endless.

One Man’s Journey Jim Martin ’70 came to Austin Prep at a time of national upheaval. AP’s suburban campus was an entirely new environment for a kid from Lawrence Avenue in Dorchester. “A friend, Fr. Paul Ryan from St John’s Parish, had persuaded me to attend—or more accurately, persuaded my parents to send me. I was 15 and apprehensive about how I’d be perceived at an all-white school.” “The first thing I noticed were the Augustinians,” Jim recalls. “They were very different from the parish priests I knew from answering the phone at the rectory at home. “It was clear to me that Austin had a high sense of purpose and structure. Even so, it wasn’t scary. In fact, Austin Prep was as warm a place as I’d ever been. The day I arrived, sophomore Jay Dowd greeted me authentically and welcomed me to the Austin family. “And it was a family. The closeness between students was incredible, the teachers too. I had many friends and can’t remember anyone I disliked.”


“Back in 1967, Austin Prep was 50% Irish, 50% Italian, and there I was, right in the middle.” – Jim Martin ’70

Now, facing some big challenges, those virtues returned as principles by which I could guide myself.”

Although he found no hint of it at Austin, racial tension, prejudice, and integration were facts of life for someone who lived in Dorchester. “Back home,” Jim remembers, “the police often had to be called when we played school basketball against Charlestown and East Boston.” It was difficult to live in one world and go to school in another, but, fortunately, Jim found teachers in whom he could confide. “The Adamo brothers with whom I studied English and History, helped me sort things out, to separate my subjective feelings from actual facts. When you’re a teenager, your feelings tend to predominate. The Adamos helped me look at issues objectively and with perspective. I realize now they were instilling in me a desire for Veritas. Fr. Bogardus, O.S.A., a strong disciplinarian, demanded order and helped me to develop a sense of focus. One way or another, all my teachers and coaches contributed to my education and for that I am eternally grateful.” Jim’s interest was in science; he planned to become a doctor. “Entering college I felt very well prepared, however I became side tracked during my sophomore year. I was a drummer in a band and found myself partying more and studying less, which didn’t help with my grades.” “That was when Unitas, Veritas, and Caritas came to the rescue. I remembered hearing them discussed during meetings in high school, but it had all gone over my head at the time.

Jim got back on track and moved from Salem State, to North Shore Community College where he recovered academically, and was inspired by a professor who told him he had great potential. Next, he took bio-chem courses at Harvard, ultimately finishing with his undergraduate degree at Northeastern. For the next few years, he traveled across West Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico as an oil company geologist searching for new deposits of crude. When the oil boom ended in 1981, Jim found himself back in Boston, ready to begin a new phase of his life’s journey. With a background in lab sciences, he landed a job at Boston City Hospital. He would stay there for 20 years. “As the new guy, I got all the weekends, holidays, and overnight shifts,” he recalls. “Plus, that was the era of drugs and gangs, so I saw a lot of trauma. But I was also in a position to watch medical testing evolve from test tubes to robotics and automation. It was quite an experience.” Along the way, he obtained a master’s degree in education from Cambridge College, and a certificate in computer science from Roger Williams in Rhode Island.

Jim Martin ’70 at Siemens where he designs medical devices.

Today, Jim designs medical devices for Siemens. “I began as someone who provided tech support,” he says, “but in an environment like that you’re drawn into new projects, assigned to committees, asked to solve different problems and, before you know it, you have a much broader range of responsibilities. Right now, I’m involved in research & development and software development, as well as product design.”

Living his principles. Although he tends to minimize his contributions, Jim has always maintained a parallel career as a Big Brother, teacher and role model to disadvantaged kids. He began at Brookview House in his old neighborhood in Dorchester. Brookview is an organization dedicated to alleviating family homelessness and providing educational opportunities to young people who wouldn’t have them otherwise. Jim says he began slowly, stopping in every once in a while to say hello (both of his sisters work at Brookview) and build relationships. When it became obvious how eager the kids were to have him around, Jim began setting up after-school science experiments, teaching guitar classes and mentoring. “Many of these kids have no father, so I try to fill the void. To help them sort out things in their world, the way I was helped years ago.” Jim Martin ’70 with his parents.

Jim also does a lot of tutoring at Roxbury Community College. All told, he estimates he has counseled hundreds of kids in the course of his volunteer work. Recently, he returned to the Austin campus. As a teacher and technologist, the tools like 3-D printers, being used to transform and enrich education, impressed him. “I met a kid who is designing and marketing his own line of sneakers. I saw the way tech allows teachers to move beyond the textbook into activities that let kids learn through direct experience. I said to myself: the old school is still keeping the standards high. These kids really have a jump. Of course, that’s always been true of Austin Prep. In my day, too.”

Talk to Jim for any length of time and you will recognize the quiet wisdom behind everything he tells you. “I chose a simple life,” he says. “And I’ve adopted principles from several disciplines and religions to help me live life well. For example, my mother was a Japanese Buddhist. From her I learned balance and honor. Then there’s Unitas, Veritas, and Caritas. I think I understand them now.” That understanding comes from a lifetime of aligning his actions with the deepest meaning of those virtues. For Jim, they are an entire philosophy of life in just three words.

Asked to express his advice to current Austin students in just one word, he doesn’t hesitate: “Fortitude. We’re facing a lot of difficult issues these days. There are many opportunities as well, but we can’t realize them without fortitude.” Asked how fortitude can be cultivated, he chuckles and says: “Persistence, strength and courage. Just that.”

Fall 2018



The Journey to Extraordinary While commencements traditionally celebrate new beginnings, on May 20th the Class of 2018 was encouraged to instead continue their Austin Prep journeys into the future. During her commencement address, trustee, parent and business leader Barbara Marchetti, P’17 shared advice on how to journey to extraordinary. Reminding students that they each own their own futures, Mrs. Marchetti promised that future success would be measured in terms of positive impact on others. By employing a heart to heart approach of care and empathy, skills developed at Austin Prep, graduates can create meaningful lives. Another board member and Augustinian Friar, Fr. Ray Dlugos, O.S.A., Vice President of Mission and Ministry at Merrimack College, celebrated a Baccalaureate Mass on Friday May 19th and urged graduates to create fun and joy on the way. Those two themes continued in remarks by the Class of 2018 Valedictorian Caitlyn Leonard of Peabody, who focused on personal accountability.


“We will be defined in our everyday actions – and those actions we make are our choice.” Caitlyn said. “So, will we choose to be defined by our open hearts? Our service to our country or community? Our love for our family and friends? Our hard work and determination? Our commitment to our faith? As we walk through those doors, we each have a choice, but as Austin Prep graduates I know the choice we will all make.” Bridget Kelley of Melrose, Class of 2018 Salutatorian, urged her fellow graduates to “Take the pen and write your own story. Continue to make it a story of kindness, of spirit, of dedication, of acceptance, and of a love for life. I think that we as a class have already changed the world, because you have changed me, and we have changed each other, for the better.” We’re confident the Class of 2018 has already started implementing many of the ‘Human to Human’ and ‘Heart to Heart’ skills learned during their years at Austin Prep to help others and live a life filled with joy. A journey to extraordinary indeed.

Pride of the Cougars Austin Prep’s rich tradition of honoring outstanding coaches, teams and star performers continues with the Class of 2018. This year the Athletic Hall of Fame induction committee chose a remarkable group. The 1988-89 men’s ice hockey team was one of the best in history. Star forward Chris Scourletis ’89 was part of a class that played all four years together under Head Coach Jim McAdam. Ipswich native Scourletis, who later went on to play college and professional hockey, said McAdam “always felt that friendships forged were bigger than the game.” Taking a league record of 24-4-1 into the playoffs, Austin Prep knocked off Acton-Boxborough and defeated Springfield Cathedral 8-3 at Boston Garden for the D2 Crown. Then and now, Coach McAdam said “it felt better than winning a million dollars!” Football, hockey and baseball star Chuck Gaudet ’76 who went on to UPenn is still regarded by many as one of the finest male athletes to ever wear the Green and White.


Two women were included in this Athletic Hall of Fame class. Three-sport star and softball sensation Erica Barry Geyer ’02 set records at Austin Prep and later at Babson College. Paige Christie ’11 swam to glory in high school pools to the Smith College pool to the English Channel and beyond (Journey Spring 2016). Another honored swimmer was Paul Bimmler ’09 who continues to hold many records for both Austin Prep and the college team he later captained at Fairfield University. Now a high school teacher and coach, Bimmler said he had lots of people to thank for his success at the induction ceremony. Perhaps most of all, his parents who spent hours driving to and from practices at dark pools in the middle of the night. “I appreciate their sacrifice more and more as I get older!” Finally, Tom Enright was enshrined as a contributor after 47 years teaching and coaching in Reading. Starting at Austin Prep as a student teacher while studying at Salem State in 1966, he was hired full time the next year.

The young math teacher was also assigned to coach JV basketball and was head coach by the age of 24. With no gymnasium, he led the Cougar five to a record of 156-63 over ten years. Later Academic Dean and Assistant Headmaster, Enright also coached girl’s basketball when Austin Prep went co-ed, and later golf. Thrilled to be introduced by his former player and current Austin Trustee Kate McHugh ’99, who went on to enjoy a great basketball career at Harvard, Enright said he felt blessed by being part of the Austin Prep family. “I was fortunate,” he said, “to look forward to every day of my time at the school. Every day was an honor.”

A culture of winning

Peter Burns ’18, Nicholas Cafarelli ’19, Athletic Director Jonathan Pollard ’97

Soon after the new Head of School Dr. Jim Hickey arrived on Willow Street he was tasked with finding a new director of athletics. He turned to advice from Jonathan Saurman ’14.

Austin won almost 75% of their varsity contests. It was the first time in history the Cougars won the award and highlighted by the varsity baseball team winning its first Division 3 State Championship.

The Holy Cross-bound Saurman was an excellent choice. School president, captain of both varsity football and baseball, and son of former AP football player George ’83, Jonathan thought he had just the right person for the important post.

Dr. Hickey believes success in athletics is a natural extension of what students learn in class. “The coaches here build relationships with their players and inspire them to achieve.”

The senior reported he had played summer baseball for manager and AP alum Jonathan Pollard ’97, and believed he possessed the right balance of skills and values for the job. Fast forward to the spring of 2018 and now Athletics Director Pollard proudly leads the program recognized by the Boston Globe with the Nason Division 3 Award. The trophy goes to the co-educational Catholic high school with the highest combined winning percentage in Massachusetts.


Austin Prep offers 20 varsity teams, and 80 percent of the 740 students compete in at least one sport. Many are three-sport athletes, like Andover-native Logan Bravo ’18. A soccer and basketball player, Bravo excelled on the diamond and looks forward to continuing his career at Harvard. “My coaches instilled a strong work ethic and time management skills that allowed me to enjoy a balanced life at school. Winning the State Championship senior year with my teammates was a highlight we’ll never forget.”

Fall 2018

But while winning titles is great, AD Pollard believes it’s the variety of sports and experiences that lie behind Cougar success. “One of the areas we are most proud of within Austin Prep Athletics is that we provide offerings that meet the needs of both our most experienced and competitive students, as well as our students simply looking to try something new and be part of a team,” Pollard says. “This is most accurately represented in the fact we have won multiple conference and state championships, while at the same time offering one sport minimally each season that is no-cut. “Whether assisting our most advanced student-athletes in their pursuit of the collegiate athletic dream, or introducing students to a sport they have never taken part in, my coaching staff and I take great pride in our role in providing teaching moments outside of the classroom.”

The softball team also took home hardware this year winning the Division 3 North title for the third time in a row. Teammates, catcher Francesca Frelick ’20 and pitcher Logan MacDonald ’18 were named Boston Herald All-Scholastics. Now playing for Babson College, Wilmington-resident MacDonald said the best part of being an athlete at Austin Prep since the sixth grade is that teams become your family. “Playing together, doing homework together, you get really close. I’ll always value that.” Family. Values. Culture. Athletics are part of the whole, and together they bring the Austin Prep mission alive. Go Cougars!!!

Strong in Mind Spirit and Body On September 17th Austin Prep renovated its weight room and rededicated the David E. Nelson ’81 Fitness Center. Named for an outstanding scholar-athlete who passed away just weeks before his graduation, and transformed with capital funding and proceeds from the 2017 Austin Open Golf Tournament, the Nelson Center will assist all members of the Austin Prep school community in achieving personal fitness, health and wellness goals.

He went on to say that his brother and sisters, along with their parents Al and Madlyn, who are celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary this year, “feel that supporting Austin is the best way to stay connected to the school, give back, and keep David’s memory alive.”

David was the third Nelson brother to play hockey for the Cougars. He followed his brothers Fred ’73, and Ron ’75. All were team captains. Fred went on to play at Merrimack, Ron at AIC, and David had accepted a scholarship to play at UMass Lowell, where they kept his name on their roster for 4 years.

Austin is grateful to the Nelson’s for their generosity and care for not only Cougar athletes, but also all students in mind, body and spirit.

Ron also thanked the current Austin administration and community for their continued support and kindness.

Besides the Fitness Center, the Nelson family and friends also established The David E. Nelson ’81 Memorial Scholarship, given annually since his passing. The scholarship is open to all upper school students and not every recipient is an athlete. Ron was pleased to note how many young women have recently benefited from the scholarship. Fall 2018

ANNUAL FUND $253,865

All gifts to the Annual Fund, regardless of amount, make a difference.

The Austin Prep Annual Fund Tradition Given the multi-dimensional qualities of our school, tuition dollars alone are never sufficient to fund all the extra opportunities that are uniquely aligned with the Austin Prep Journey. With Annual Fund contributions, we enrich the quality of life for our students and their teachers, and allow for unique and distinctive learning opportunities.


Annual Fund and Mission Our mission is to inspire hearts to unite, minds to inquire and hands to serve.

Annual Fund Dollars at Work 2017-2018 Fitness Center Equipment: Annual Fund donations helped supply new equipment and provide appropriate staffing for the newly-renovated David E. Nelson ’81 Fitness Center. The center is now able to be used by all students, as well as alumni. Faculty Growth & Development: To provide better support for our students, the Annual Fund supports faculty positions added to advance health and wellness of students. Annual Fund dollars also provided professional development opportunities for faculty, including summer sabbaticals for faculty to pursue personalized study and continuing education. Supplies for our Makerspace: For our new Makerspace, Annual Fund contributions helped us add two 3-D printers, a laser cutter and drafting materials, which allow our students to enjoy a classroom curriculum focused on creation. Citizen-Scholars Social Studies Program: To help better understand the role of Massachusetts in the American Revolution, the Annual Fund provided experiential learning opportunities for our Middle School students through small class trips to various local, historical sites.
