including fast growing areas Mason, West Chester, and multiple other Warren County communities. They brought attention to Fenwick by blasting newspapers with press releases about student activities and sports, had coaches host CYO games at Fenwick with red-carpet post-game activities, and most importantly, they applied for public school transportation from outlying areas. Following is the story, as told by Bill Klosterman, of the historic effort to effectively increase enrollment and determine Fenwick’s future, long before the thought of our current campus location even existed:
administration to allow the School Board to extend their current “advisory capacity” to actively manage the plan. The next era of Fenwick was born –what Bill Klosterman refers to as the Fenwick Renaissance.
Soon thereafter, four Fenwick parents – Bill Klosterman, Middletown City Engineer; Jim Greenwell and Gary Klovman, Armco Executives; and Dr. Omer Hurlburt II, local family physician – gathered together to discuss forging a course of action to save the school.
Armed with information, a plan, and now authority, the four could begin implementation. They started by adding absent programs like Latin, calculus, and soccer, and they resourced improved arts programs, speech and religion. They looked at the school’s business practices and helped implement budgeting improvements that prioritized spending so that fixing the boiler was done before new curtains were purchased. They evaluated faculty compensation and helped Fr. Averbeck correct salary imbalances and establish a more competitive compensation plan
t was 1979 and the future of Bishop Fenwick, then located on Manchester Road in Middletown, was in peril. Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk scheduled a meeting to deliver important news to parents, faculty and administrators. Based on his gloomy calculations of continued declining enrollment and rising expenses, fortified by a professional assessment conducted by the University of Dayton, the Archbishop predicted a closure within two to three years. His visit was to give families a “heads-up”.
The four developed a plan to conduct personal phone calls and interviews to current parents, past parents, and parents of John XXIII students to gather complaints and issues. Through this exhaustive information gathering, they compiled a list of issues to resolve. Secondly, they had to implement budget controls for better expense management, and, finally, address ways to Fr. Averbeck - 1979 expand enrollment. They pledged to Fr. Averbeck, the school principal, to work diligently around the clock to substantially increase enrollment and improve school attributes. Fr. Averbeck endorsed the four parents and moved quickly to assist their election to the School Board and then convince
They went into the business community, targeting business owners who benefited from Fenwick’s doors remaining open, and asked for funding for needed expenses, not the least of which was the first ever Falcon mascot costume! compared to nearby public and parochial schools. They went into the business community, targeting business owners who benefited from Fenwick’s doors remaining open, and asked for funding for needed expenses, not the least of which was the first ever Falcon mascot costume! The to-do was long, but the time frame to change was short: two years. Finally, expanding the enrollment beyond the mere 23 square miles from which they were recruiting students had to be addressed. The school’s actual district was 600 square miles,
It was a pivotal morning, and what could be a turning point of hope for the future of Fenwick. Principal Richard Averbeck and School Board Member, Bill Klosterman, sat together in high suspense on a public-school bus preparing to exit Mason High School’s parking lot for a crucial 19mile journey to Fenwick. They were accompanied by the State School Transportation Director and his stopwatch-operating aide, along with Mason School District Superintendent, and the Mason High School Principal. If the bus could make the trip to Fenwick’s Manchester Road location in less than 30 minutes, students from the rapidly growing Mason area would receive free, guaranteed busing to and from Fenwick, which would then open up the opportunity to attract many more students from Warren County. The Mason bus jaunt would require a 38 MPH average travelling speed and include stops at railroad crossings, traffic lights and stop signs. In Middletown city limits alone, there were nine traffic signals on the final four-mile leg of the trip. A halt at any one of them would use precious time The task of driving a full school not available to spare. bus for 19 miles under such The task of driving a full conditions within 30 minutes of school bus for 19 miles time, while obeying speed limits, under such conditions within 30 minutes of seemed daunting, except to Bill time, while obeying speed Klosterman, who had an “outlimits, was daunting. With high expectation, of-the-box” plan. But, would it Bill Klosterman had an work? “out-of-the-box” plan, but would it work? Klosterman, as City Engineer, oversaw Middletown’s traffic control system. For his plan, he had instructed Field Technician, Bob Zuehlke, a 1957 Fenwick graduate, to station off-duty, Catholic police officers at each of the nine traffic signals along the proposed bus route within Middletown’s boundaries. Using hand-operated control devices, each “signal-guarding” policeman – under Bob’s command –inconspicuously switched the traffic signal light to turn green as the Mason bus distantly approached. The officer would then maintain the green signal until the bus cleared, after which he would radio ahead an alert about the advancing bus to the next “signal guard” on the route. The operation succeeded without a glitch, knocking almost four minutes off previous trial runs along Middletown streets Grand, Breiel, and University. Astonishingly, the bus journey’s official time was announced by the State School
Transportation Director to be 29:52, eight seconds under the 30-minute travel maximum as stipulated by law! As the bus departed to Mason, Fr. Averbeck and Bill walked into Fenwick for a moment of pondering. Klosterman had not yet informed Fr. Averbeck about the signal control manipulation. Averbeck, speechless as he sat down at his desk, stammered in awe, “That was a miracle, Bill! We sailed through every one of the nine lights! We finished just under the limit! Wow! There is a God!” Klosterman allowed the Principal a moment to enjoy his ecstatic mood before bursting his bubble with the report of what had really transpired. With Mason being the prime enrollment expansion target in the school’s vast outlying districts, the “under 30” accomplishment was huge. By the end of the Renaissance in 1983, the school was on solvent footing and enrollment was up 17%! The school survived peril to live for another day—and then another decade, and now generations since that pivotal 1979 bus ride. These outstanding efforts were the result of extraordinary people doing extraordinary things in an extraordinary situation. As our motto says, “To Reach the Heights, Aim High”.
Bill Klosterman with 3 of his children: Linda, ‘84, Susan ‘77, and Jim ‘80 Notes about the Author: Bill Klosterman is the father of four Fenwick graduates, Steve ‘77, Susan ‘79, Jim ‘80, and Linda Klosterman Meyer ‘84. Last December, on the night of his son Jim’s Hall of Achievement Induction, Bill shared the story of the “Miracle Bus Ride” with Mike Raiff. The story was then written and prepared for this publication until a recent phone call to verify some facts. In that conversation, Bill revealed that the bus trip was only a part of what he referenced the Fenwick Renaissance, 1979-1983, and advised that to only share the bus trip, would short-change the achievement of so many dedicated, passionate and loyal supporters of Fenwick who kept Fenwick’s doors open. At the age of 83, while visiting his sister in the hospital, Bill sat down with pen and paper and wrote out the whole story. He then drove to Fenwick to personally deliver his hand-written pages and enlighten us more than is captured in this article. His story has been edited only slightly for brevity. Thank you Bill Klosterman for your lyrical story-telling, insuring the history of Bishop Fenwick prevails and for your personal contributions and sacrifices on behalf of Fenwick.

Dear Fenwick Family,
Principal Blane Collison with his wife, Kelly.
As I enter into my new role as Principal of Bishop Fenwick High School I am grateful to all of the students, faculty, staff, parents and alumni who have been so welcoming to me and my family. The Fenwick Family spirit is evident and I have been struck by the deep passion and pride members of this community have for our school!
Fenwick has a rich history and a tradition of success, and I am blessed to have the opportunity to continue serving our Church in my role as a Catholic educator within this community. With every new venture there is an opportunity to establish a vision and create new goals in order to achieve greater success than previously existed. It’s true in every walk of life, and within every institution. Visioning the future is an exciting endeavor, but it also requires tremendous commitment on behalf of all constituents to make it happen. Our primary goal for Bishop Fenwick High School is to be the best co-educational, Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. We have the opportunity to enliven student’s lives with opportunities for spiritual growth that inspires them to become the best version of themselves, to achieve all that God calls them to be. We are committed to engaging students in their learning, and providing them opportunities to apply the knowledge they gain, in meaningful academic endeavors within the classroom. Student’s lives become enriched when they have opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities which allow them to expand their talents. These opportunities to pursue their passion, helps to form their character, by learning integrity, hard work and perseverance. This is the vision for every Fenwick student! None of us knows what exactly lies ahead. I contend that the best way to predict the future is to create it!
Have something special to share with the Fenwick community? Please contact us with your news and photos through the website at fenwickfalcons.org/update-your-information or email directly to email@example.com. Call the Development Office at 513-727-1500.
Working together will allow us to achieve the success we desire for every current and future student, while strengthening our Church and Bishop Fenwick High School.

MENTALITY This fall, Athletic Director, Michael Coleman, articulated his new athletic theme, Fenwick Mentality, at the first ever Fall Sports Cookout & Parent Meeting. The Athletic Department, in collaboration with Development, hosted the meeting that began in a packed gymnasium filled with athletes, parents and coaches. Fenwick Mentality is really nothing new. It has always existed; it was born before the school opened their doors in 1952, influencing and molding our students for decades. It began with the founding families and Fr. Julian Krusling whose Fenwick Mentality of vision, hard work, loyalty and sacrifice made this institution. That spirit continues today, albeit more contemporary. It is not just an attitude or executed actions. Fenwick Mentality speaks to the whole person, whether student, athlete, parent, coach, faculty, or alumni. Fenwick Mentality is embodied in our individual and collective character. During the sports meeting, Mr. Coleman challenged Fenwick athletes “to operate with excellence to achieve their full potential

in all areas of their life.” Principal Blane Collision and Director of Development Mike Raiff also gave remarks. All coaches introduced their team and shared their goals for the fall season. Our athletes proudly donned their new Fenwick Mentality shirt, showing solidarity to the effort! The meeting concluded outside for a cookout and a Parent Club sponsored used uniform sale. It was an amazing day to celebrate Fenwick Athletics!

An Olympiad in the Making? Adam Chaney ‘20 made waves at the OHSAA Division II state final in Canton finishing 3rd in the 50 Free and 4th in the 100 Free as just a freshman. This summer, Adam qualified for the 2017 Speedo Junior National Championships in New York. He was the only 15-year old to make finals in the 50 Free and ended up placing 5th, and earning his first Olympic Trial Cut! His outstanding time was 23.29 LCM. He has also been identified by the USA Swimming Organization as a top 24 swimmer in the country. In late October, he attended a once-in-a-lifetime camp experience at the USA Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs to meet the national team staff. Over a third of the swimmers in attendance will go on to represent the United States at international meets including the Olympic Games. His accomplishments are not earned without a significant investment of his time. Adam has been swimming for the Mason Manta Rays since he was 8-years old and practices an average of 20 hours/6 days a week! Good luck Adam--we expect to see you in Tokyo for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games!
Fenwick Perform at FC Cincinnati Venue Dan Lueking ‘99, in his third year as boys head soccer coach, champions players to become faithful young men of character, both on and off the field. He has created a wellrounded, Christ-centered program that evaluates not only each player’s development in soccer during the season, but in leadership, academics and service, as well, throughout the year. He also believes in creating opportunities to bond players to one another. This summer, six players were selected to participate in a Penalty Shot Shootout during halftime of the FC Cincinnati soccer game Saturday, June 17. In front of over 21,000 fans, Fenwick players shot against Anderson High School. Rising senior goalkeeper, Will Eiken stopped 3 of 5 shots on goal!

LACROSSE Lacrosse Reaches OHSAA Status This past spring the first Bishop Fenwick Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Division II Lacrosse Team, took the field with head coaches Phil Keegan (boys) and Scott Ricke (girls) on the sidelines.…a mere 15 years in the making. Both Phil and Scott started coaching lacrosse at the pleading of their school-aged children. Although a humble beginning in 2002, the first “Falcon” team, comprised mostly of scrappy John XXIII grade school boys and a passionate parent coach, it developed into a lacrosse program envied and emulated by many surrounding schools. By 2005, many of the team was entering high school, so Phil made a request to Fenwick’s athletic director to approve a high school team. They were granted Club status as the Falcons, NOT the Fenwick Falcons. The team flourished with players and talent and most importantly, parent support. A rostered son, meant a rostered parent volunteer! Parental support was the backbone of the team for all fundraising, field management, game management, uniforms, etc. In 2006, restless female siblings, tired of watching their brothers from the sideline, convinced Scott Ricke to form the first girl’s lacrosse club team. Girls play a less physical version of lacrosse requiring a face mask versus helmet, but the need for speed, agility and coordination were consistent fundamentals to the game. The growth surge of lacrosse in Ohio helped open the door for recognition and for the 2009 season, the Falcons became the official Fenwick Falcon Lacrosse team continuing their play in the designated Ohio High School Lacrosse
Association. Phil reflects, “This was a huge step for the program, giving credibility and the opportunity for men and women to earn a varsity letter.” The program has continued to garner wins, produce collegiate players and earn respect from the elite Cincinnati teams: Indian Hill, Mariemont and Summit. Players including: Alex Keegan ‘09; Marymount University, Lee Grimes ‘13; University of Tampa, Taylor Swartz ‘14; Sienna Heights University, Matthew Willenbrink ‘16; Wilmington College, and Ben Hinton ‘16; Colorado State Pueblo, signed to play collegiately. The 2016 season, both boys and girl’s squads, produced historical seasons in terms of wins, tournament advancement, and recognized players; a great lead-up to the first OHSAA Lacrosse season. When ask about the highs and lows of the Fenwick lacrosse program, Coach Phil struggled to identify a low, but easily rattled off many highs, “The entire 2016 season was a high: they beat Mariemont for the first time in soccer history, the team advanced to a state semi-final, a record number of players (girls and boys) were publicly recognized for their talents and on a personal level, I celebrated my 100th win as coach for the Fenwick Falcons!” What does Coach Keegan yearn for the future? His dream is a “turf field, an offensive coordinator, and the continued special partnership with parents that support the program.” Why does Coach Keegan continue to coach? He answered, “When I am dead, no one will say, ‘Wow, that guy could really sell chemicals,’ but if I can help kids learn skills, team work, and enjoy the game of lacrosse, then maybe my contributions are worthy.” This became apparent from the
countless notes of appreciation he received from players, parents, and alumni for his 100th coaching win. And for Coach Ricke, he loved, “Helping young ladies grow as individuals, understanding the value of team work, and gaining confidence along the way. I especially loved coaching my daughters Nichole ‘10 and Bailey ‘17, compete and excel at a sport they love!”

LEADERS Bishop Fenwick Students Selected for Prestigious Summer Academy Programs This summer, numerous rising seniors were accepted to attend multiple leadership programs across the United States. Programs at West Point and U.S. Naval Academies, Economics for Leaders, Saint George Trek and the Buckeye Boys State Leadership Program all followed an acceptance selection process based on demonstrated achievements in academics, service, and leadership, with some also requiring proven physical fitness. Many programs had an overwhelming application rate to acceptance rate. For example, West Point Summer Seminar acceptance rate is 1:6, and the National Catholic Committee of Scouting chooses only 70 Catholic Boy Scouts and Venture Crew members nationally to participate in the Saint George Trek. A common thread for all students selected for participation in these programs is their demonstrated leadership, and Fenwick students have a unique advantage over many candidates. Current senior John Gillen ‘18, when asked if he believes his experience at Fenwick has been instrumental in developing leadership skills, says “At Fenwick, even if not in a titled leadership role, you have many opportunities to be a leader. For example, in football, we have three captains, but many other players will be leaders during practice, drills, games, lifting, etc. Captains cannot do everything and be everywhere, so other players, not even seniors, step up to lead and help others.” A hallmark of the Fenwick experience is the ability to participate in many clubs and activities that allow a student
personal growth in leadership. Each of the selected summer attendees participate in multiple clubs outside of their athletic teams including the Ambassador Program, Peer Mentorship, Key Club, Right to Life, Academic Team, French Club, Mock Trial and many others.
“At Fenwick, even if not in a titled leadership role, you have many opportunities be a leader.” John GIllen ‘18
Sam Lewis ‘19 was the only student recommended within the entire Cincinnati Archdiocese to attend the Saint George Trek. Outside of Fenwick, he is very involved with his parish and Boy Scouts, earning an Eagle Scout badge as a high school freshman and the Ad Altare Dei emblem. This summer, he and others backpacked 95 miles over eleven days through the Rocky Mountains, Sangre de Cristo Range. They were required to carry all their equipment and supplies throughout the trek, stopping only once to replenish water and food. Catherine Richards ‘18, a standout volleyball player, said of her experience through the Economics for Leaders program, “I am so thankful for this life-changing experience which has impacted my academic and career pursuits”. Candidates for the scholarship to attend Economics for Leaders were required to answer the following: Describe how you see yourself as a leader among those with whom you interact. The ability to recognize and articulate one’s experiences in leadership throughout high school, no matter how small they may seem, provides further opportunity to grow into and exemplify a true leader in all aspects of life. We are proud to have these Fenwick students recognized for their achievements.

Bishop Fenwick ART on a National Stage! Ryan Sulesky ‘17, was awarded the Congressional winner from Cincinnati’s 1st District Representative Steve Chabot in the annual Congressional Art Competition. At the local level, students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. The public then votes to determine national winners. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. In June, Ryan and his mother travelled to D.C. for the ceremony and first-place award. Ryan Sulesky ‘17 with his Congressional Winning acrylic painting Phlegmatic Ryan’s acrylic painting, Phlegmatic, will be hung for a year at the U.S. Capitol. During this time, Ryan will be completing his first year of studies at the Savannah College of Art & Design in Georgia pursuing a degree in visual effects.
DRAMA PARADE PRIDE
and members excel beyond Bishop Fenwick. Last January, Andrew Adam ‘19 marched in the Rose Bowl Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, California. As just a freshman, Andrew auditioned against thousands of other musicians for the Bands of America Honor Band and was selected for his talent playing Alto Sax. This was an incredible achievement given his youth. He is the first Bishop Fenwick student to ever be selected to the National Honor Band, an esteemed roster of musicians. Prior to Adam’s Rose Bowl appearance, he and all other members of the National Honor Band performed at Disneyland; good practice for the 5.5-mile Rose Bowl parade route! This November, Andrew, along with Nick Hobbs ‘19 and Lorien Evans ‘19 will be travelling to NYC to perform with the Great American Marching Band in the 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day
Parade. Stepping-off from Central Park, the Band will be cheered by 3 million spectators lining the parade route. Arriving at Macy’s Herald Square, the Band will perform for celebrity hosts, a grandstand audience, and more than 50 million TV viewers watching the broadcast live on NBC. Only a total of 225 band members were selected for this opportunity and out of the 10 Ohioans selected, Fenwick is represented by three! The rigorous selection process began a year ago for our trio who prepared a musical selection that they submitted via YouTube as their audition. Additionally, weight was given to our musician’s extracurricular participation in multiple honors bands, college bands and camps, such as Southwest Ohio Catholic Honor Band, EKU Stephen Collins Foster Summer Camp, UD Flyer Holiday Pep Band and collegiate honor bands at Ball State University, OSU, and NOU.

SERVANTS In June 2014, a special gift was secured from Home City Ice specifically underwriting the service programs of our Fenwick students for the next 10 years! This tremendous gift was inspired by Fr. Bedel and crafted by Director of Development, Mike Raiff. One service program, Talon Thursday, had been started by Chaplain Fr. Jason Bedel earlier that school year utilizing students to pack lunches that were delivered to St. Vincent De Paul Shelter. Over the years, Talon Thursday has become the cornerstone effort that joins students, faculty, staff and others to fulfill an overwhelming need for a community meal program. On scheduled Thursdays throughout the school year, 10-20 volunteers will gather in the cafeteria to assemble brown bagged meals consisting of 2 ham sandwiches, a bag of chips, an apple and a bottle of water. Often, teams are formed on each side of the tables making a race to the finish to pack 200 lunches. The volunteers change week to week, but they are always present. There are no post-event expectations for left-over food or to earn a special privilege, simply, the satisfaction of participating in a benevolent act.
To date, over 12,000 sandwiches have been made and distributed to the children and families displaced to St. Vincent De Paul Shelter. 20
FAMILY PHILANTHROPY This past July, Mike Raiff, Director of Development received an email from Chris, father of Sam ’19 and Eve ‘21 who offered himself as a volunteer for the three day 1-FENWICK Weekend. Chris and his family “walk the talk” of philanthropy every day. Chris, an employee of Verizon, capitalizes on Verizon’s volunteer program that gifts charitable organizations for their employee’s volunteer time. Annually, Chris volunteers 50 hours for Holy Name Parish and 50 hours for Fenwick earning a combined $1500 for those institutions. Fenwick is a double beneficiary; we receive 50 hours of Chris’s dedicated volunteer time and $750 from Verizon! He and his family volunteer at many places and for many causes. Chris said his eyes were opened to philanthropy years ago when he was first involved with his high school youth group. “It was an opportunity to think beyond myself for just a little while.” The Lewis family volunteers regularly for Holy Name
Parish youth group, summer lunch program, mission program, canned food drive, Knights of Columbus and numerous ad hoc needs. Chris, wife Rebecca and children David, Ben, Sam and Eve, are fully present in the purpose and value that their volunteering brings to the lives of many people. There is no glory in the exercise, rather just plain hard work, and humble appreciation. Chris’ help during 1-FENIWCK Weekend ran the gamut from hauling trash, setting up the 5k start and finish lines, parking assistance, golf-hole caddy, teardown and cleanup. He tells his children to do the work no one else wants to do. Much of the family’s motivation comes from knowing that their contributions help others. As Chris says, “The satisfaction felt from volunteering is payment in full”. When the next phone call or email request to volunteer is presented to you, consider the lens of the Lewis family, see it as an opportunity to participate in something larger than yourself.
“My wife and I believe in volunteering, and we raised our family to offer help whenever we see a need. We enjoy giving our time to service-minded organizations like Holy Name of Jesus Church, Bishop Fenwick, Boy Scouts, Civil Air Patrol, American Heritage Girls, and Financial Peace University. To our family, being a good volunteer isn’t about the visibility, it’s about being humble enough to do the littlest or dirtiest job with integrity, and to the best of our ability. We try to keep in mind that God is good, all the time, and He finds none of us too “little” or “dirty” to give us His best. The glory belongs to Him in all we do.”
Chris Lewis - parent volunteer
FUTURE FALCONS The Case for Coeducation
reat choices abound in our area when it comes to choosing a high school. One decision could hinge on the choice between a single sex school or a coeducational environment. Recent studies have indicated for a student’s holistic growth and development of mind, body, and spirit it makes sense to place the student in a natural environment of coeducation. To separate the two sexes is not the norm in the family, higher education, social or business world. According to the Women’s College Coalition, in the last 50 years, the number of women’s colleges have declined from 230 to just over 40. Dr. Lise Eliot, a neuroscientist and author, cites, “The decline reflects the fact that women are doing quite well in higher education, and no longer feel the need for a protected space to develop their intellectual potential.” Dr. Eliot goes on to state, “I would argue that rather than segregating girls and boys, schools should be doing the opposite: deliberately creating more opportunities for both sexes to interact in purposeful collaboration.” (1)
Institutionalizing gender-segregated classrooms limits children’s opportunities to develop a broader range of behaviors and attitudes. Positive and cooperative interaction with members of other groups is an effective method for improving intergroup relationships (2). Boys and girls can learn from each other, leading to enriched cognitive and social skills. Neuroscientists have found few sex differences in children’s brains beyond the larger volume of boys’ brains and the earlier completion of girl’ brain growth, neither of which is known to relate to learning (3). Some might say a coed environment leads to distractions in the classroom. As students accept this type of learning as the norm, the distractions are diminished and real learning begins. All you must do is look around you. It is a co-gender society. Males and females must co-exist and learn from each other with respect and collaboration. Following recent studies and the successes, coupled with experienced observation, Fenwick promotes students’ growth in a coeducational environment. Susan McGee Bailey, Retired Executive Director of the Wellesley College Center for Research on Women, in support of coeducation stated, “When evaluating single-sex education, we must not ignore a crucial purpose of education – developing effective citizens. We need to consider the tradeoffs we may be making in sex-segregating students, closing off opportunities for learning from and with each other.” –

Two Faculty Recognized for Their Impact Outstanding Educators K-12, introduced by Cincy Magazine, is a way for local Tristate schools, both private and public, to recognize leading educators. Annually, up to 20 teachers and their schools will be acknowledged. The magazine is proud to support and honor the Tristate’s top educators for their achievement and dedication to teaching. Last spring, Outstanding Educators selected two faculty from Fenwick ; Michael Warnock, art/photography instructor and Patrick Poplis, intervention specialist. Michael, new to Fenwick in 2016, has elevated both the art department and his students for national recognition.
Sr. Donna Bryant
For almost 10 years, Sr. Donna enlightened the spiritual minds of Fenwick freshman while they gave her constant teaching inspiration. Her lively presentations were always balanced with deep reflections. A few years ago, when sister suffered a fracture that required residence at the Mother House, she was visited often by students and upon her return to school she created an uproar of adulation! In May, sister officially retired and relocated to the Mother House where she will share her joy and laughter.
Patrice Harty, took her final bow, completing 46 years of service to Bishop Fenwick. While at Fenwick she taught Spanish for 41 years before transitioning to a part-time position working in Campus Ministry. She taught almost 4,000 students, but more importantly, she impacted that many young lives well beyond academics.
- Patrice Harty
A Grand Farewell E rin Johnson, Campus Ministry Director, lost two longtime staff members; Sr. Donna Bryant and Patrice Harty.
Patrick Poplis, also recognized, brings techniques and tools to positively impact students’ academic success. He facilitates learning in the classroom and in athletics as lacrosse, football and bowling coach. This spring, Patrick was also awarded the Cristo Family Award in recognition of his ability to strengthen the self-esteem of students who are struggling academically and emotionally.
“Every day that I came here it mattered to me that the kids would know that I loved and cared for them. That they were important to me. Every, single, day. Even after 46 years.”
In 1971, Patrice arrived at the Manchester Road location, a 23 year-old new college graduate, prepared to make Middletown a one and done teaching assignment. Over that year,

however, Patrice would grow her love and loyalty for this place called Bishop Fenwick. As she expanded her family; husband, children, grandchildren, she also grew into a very involved and highly valued position within the Fenwick family. Her personal life and faith life had become interconnected with Fenwick through students, parents, faculty, staff and alumni. In May, a special reception was held to honor Patrice and allow the community to visit with her. At the celebration, a memory book was presented to Patrice filled with letters of appreciation and well wishes. In a newspaper interview by the Journal -News, the reporter asked, “What will be your legacy?” After a long pause, she remarked, “That every day that I came here it mattered to me that the kids would know that I loved and cared for them. That they were important to me. Every, single, day. Even after 46 years.” Thank you, Sr. Donna and Patrice, for touching our lives, for enriching our experience at Fenwick, and for giving us a faithful light. We are still adjusting to your absence. Know that you are missed. Lord make me your bread today and break me up and pass me around.
RELATIONSHIPS Dear Fenwick Family, In 2014, we set out to create an office whose priority was building relationships with all the constituents of this proud Fenwick community. It was an extremely tall order for the Development Office, where the previous focus had been fundraising versus philanthropy and outreach. Three years into this commitment, we can easily and confidently confirm that this strategy is working. Our efforts during this time frame account for over $2.2 million of impact directly to the Fenwick community, confirming that building relationships is key to building Fenwick’s future. Charitable giving by our stakeholders to the Crimson and Gold Campaign has provided needed resources to invest in key initiatives, positioning Fenwick for a strong future: • A new compensation plan has created a culture of attracting and retaining talented teachers to prepare for critical academic programs to effectively ready our students for college. The goal was to reach 80% of public school wages.
• Alumni investment for meaningful engagements give our alumni reasons to reconnect with classmates, teammates and today’s students, through 1-FENWICK Weekend, Golden Falcon Brunch, Homecoming Alumni Tent, Hall of Achievement, Athletic Hall of Fame and Named Scholarship Mass & Brunch. • Townhall meetings for transparent dialogue regarding school finances were hosted offsite in neighboring communities. The Catholic school business model sets tuition price lower than the actual cost to educate. Understanding this GAP, how tuition is determined, and that ALL current families are beneficiaries of tuition assistance is, to many, a revelation. The GAP may never be eliminated, but the efforts of the Development Office to educate families will determine Fenwick’s financial footing to help fill it.
For Fenwick to realize its true potential, everyone connected with the school – parents, students, alumni, families, faculty and staff – must buy in. The Development Office is committed to fulfilling the following to our stakeholders: 1. Provide transparent information of our financial needs. 2. Uphold responsible stewardship and reporting of your gifts. 3. Sponsor purposeful engagements connecting you to people who enrich your life. Thank you for your support of Fenwick through your charitable gifts of time, talent, and treasure. God Bless and Go Falcons,
Michael E. Raiff Director of Development

Linda Braun Novotny ‘78 completed a dream of a lifetime 3,550-mile cross country bicycle trip from Seaside, Oregon to Lewes, Delaware.
She was accompanied by her daughter Victoria and a friend during the 57-day, self-supported trip. Her cycling passion began while a student at Fenwick when she rode from Columbus to Portsmouth in 1976. Her recent retirement from Northern Illinois University as a Financial Grant Administrator, allowed Linda this cycling opportunity. Her brother, Andy Braun ’86, Linda’s brother and Portland, Oregon resident, helped Linda and crew launch their ride with a bicycle tire dip in the Pacific. Jane Orth ’78 joined them for a day of riding. At the conclusion of their journey, they ended their tour with the traditional tire dip into the Atlantic. When ask
what was remarkable about their trip, Linda remarked, “I was revitalized with the generosity and spontaneous kindness of so many people we met along the way. People brought us into their homes for meals, bathrooms, overnights, even a trip to the urgent care facility!” There were some tough days of travel which required cycling an average of 62 miles daily, but the overall experience was one she would do again. Using her cross- country bike tour as inspiration, Linda established a Go Fund Me and raised $5,000 for her hometown community, Shabbona, IL to help build a 2-mile paved cycling path around the city.

Taylor Macy ‘10, upon graduation from Ohio University in 2014 with dual degrees; BS Plant Biology/BA Environmental studies, was accepted for assignment with the Peace Corps and began a 27-month assignment in October 2014. Taylor shared the following: “Many people join the Peace Corps with aspirations of saving the world. After two years of living in a West African city of about 20,000 people, I realized how much the people of Senegal do not need to be saved. With a background in plant biology (go Bobcats!), I was eager to begin my assignment as an urban agriculture volunteer. However, as a foreigner, it was first necessary for me to completely dive into the culture in order to be of value to my friends, family, and work partners. It took months to gain a thorough understanding of the values of this Muslim community, what causes people joy and frustration in a sub-Saharan desert drastically affected by climate change.

Diminishing and irregular rainfall is endangering subsistence farming and other ways of life in the area. To try and mitigate these effects, the farmers with whom I worked combined my Western technologies, such as improved seed varieties, with their experience of the land that they have been blissfully residing and farming on for generations. My two years were spent gardening, laughing, eating, and sitting with friends underneath the shade of the nearest tree, and even after leaving my community eleven months ago, I still yearn for the comforts of those years. I am currently living in Washington, D.C., and working for the Office of Air and Radiation at the Environmental Protection Agency monitoring ambient air pollutants, such as ozone, nitrate, and sulfate, under the Clean Air Act. If you would like to know more about my Peace Corps experience, you can email me at email@example.com.
