Meet Our Academics Pluses A Message from Sara Hayes, Vice Principal and Academic Dean
very one of the young women and men at Father Ryan is a student first. Whatever academic level, they are striving to further their education and prepare themselves for exceptional college experiences. They are doing this by hard work in the classroom; they are doing it by exceptional work outside of class.
I’m proud of our students’ academic achievements…the college acceptances, the exceptional board scores, the National Merit Honors. But what is most impressive to me is that these students are also our community’s leaders. The same person who is carrying multiple AP courses is also starring on the soccer field. The athlete who is competing for a state title is drawing as much satisfaction in helping a student at Harris-Hillman Special Education School. The student who is marching down 6th Avenue in New York City in front of millions gets more satisfaction out of lifting the spirits of hundreds at Far Rockaway in Queens, NY. And the basketball player who is asking his coach one day about a new court strategy is asking the same coach the next day about differential equations.
Each one is working to be a living example of the Gospel. Each is demonstrating Father Ryan’s commitment to creating THE national standard in Catholic education. In this year’s Academic Achievements report, we would like you to meet our A+ students…the “Academic Pluses” who make Father Ryan the distinctive educational environment it is. These are the young men and women whose academic work is preparing them for a college future, and who are gaining the education—in and out of the classroom—that has expanded the Father Ryan tradition of Faith, Knowledge, and Service since 1925. 2

Salutatorian and Valedictorian It is a given that our top two students would be our top academic achievers. But we are particularly proud that these achievers are such outstanding representatives of the breadth of interests on the campus.
Cole Pickney Valedictorian
At a time when so many students are looking for a welcome respite from the classroom, such as Fall Break, Cole decided that there was something more to do. He continued work on a special project he was conducting at Vanderbilt to study obesity, particularly the effects of our brain neurons on obese individuals. It is this type of curiosity and the eagerness to pursue these questions outside of the classroom that have characterized Cole’s studies at Father Ryan. He has taken 10 Advanced Placement courses, is a National Merit Finalist, and a member of the Cardinal Newman Society and Cum Laude. He is also an athlete, playing on the Varsity Lacrosse team as a midfielder, and is the President of the Student Body. Where will his interests take him? Very close. He’s headed to Vanderbilt to begin his college career.
Ransom Patterson Salutatorian
It seems that whatever opportunity presents itself at Father Ryan, Ransom Patterson is eager to try it. Band? Of course, playing his bass saxophone all four years and marching in New York for the Macy’s Parade. Service? He’s one of the leaders of the Multi-Cultural Student Union, adding his voice to the discussion of immigration, both in the classroom and in the editorial pages of The Tennessean. Acting? You could spot him in the cast of Godspell, dancing and singing to every tune. It’s not surprising that this curiosity has energized his studies. He’s taken six A.P. courses, and is a member of Cum Laude, the Cardinal Newman Society and was one of Father Ryan’s record number of National Merit Finalists this year. Ransom’s intellect, spirit, and smile will be filling the halls next at The College of Wooster and reminding his classmates there of the impact he had at Father Ryan.
In Noble Footsteps Not everyone becomes a Jefferson Scholar. It rewards leadership, scholarship, and citizenship, which is why it surprises no one at Father Ryan that John Michael Bakewell has been selected for this honor. John is a strong ambassador for Father Ryan, both John Michael Bakewell formally and casually. His engaging personality is the reason he was one of the Co-Directors for SEARCH this year. His academic achievements are so strong in the classroom that he received a St. Thomas Hospital internship for his senior project. In addition to this work, he is part of the Varsity Soccer team, which claimed the state title in 2011 and finished second in 2012. He will continue his studies at the University of Virginia. Talk about important legacies…what if your grandfather was A. A. Birch, the first African-American judge at several levels in Tennessee, including the Supreme Court? In addition your uncle, Adolpho Birch ’84 was the first African-American valedictorian at Father Ryan and now is Chief Legal Counsel for the National Football League. These are pretty big shoes, but for Erin and Elena Ferguson, those are sources of pride and models for their success. Erin Ferguson The girls came to Father Ryan from University School of Nshville seeking a challenging, diverse, and faith-based environment…and they found Elena Ferguson their place. Erin is a National Achievement Scholar Finalist who’s currently taking Spanish Lit, AP Calculus A/B, AP Psychology as well as 3D Art. She also plays on the Varsity Tennis team. Elena is taking 3D Art, AP English, AP Spanish Lit, AP Psychology, does senior service and is on the Moina staff. Both girls see the classroom as a place that develops leaders, and they are committed to living up to the family legacy. Erin at Spelman College and Elena at the College of the Holy Cross.

School Record Eight Finalists Honored by National Merit Scholarship Corporation The words National Merit Scholar mean something special. This year those words were uttered more often in conjunction with Father Ryan students than at any time in our history. Eight Father Ryan students were honored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation as National Merit Finalists, or National Achievement Scholars. The eight National Merit Finalists represent the most in school history for any year. Only three schools in Nashville had more Finalists and no other Catholic school in the state had as many as Father Ryan. Ten students in total were honored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation and they are involved in a broad range of school activities. In addition to active roles that each plays in a variety of service programs at the school, the students are active in the arts, sports, and music. The students’ success is a testament to their commitment and the preparation they received at both Father Ryan and their elementary schools: Brentwood Academy (Tyler Stuessi), Christ the King (Daniel Huetter), Holy Rosary Academy (Elizabeth Haynes, Ransom Patterson, and Cole Pickney), Overbrook (Douglas Arney and Griffin Connolly), St. Henry (Joseph Connor), St. Matthew (Luke LeFeve), and University School of Nashville (Erin Ferguson).
Faith, Everywhere You Turn Kara Anton is a voice of service. For her work on Haiti causes, she was the recipient of the Catholic Charities annual “I Care” award, presented to a student whose volunteer work demonstrates concern and results. As much a multi-tasker as any Irish student, Kara is one of the senior leaders of the band, performing in the Color Guard and adding to the pageantry and camaraderie of Marching Band. She’ll be attending Aquinas College this fall.
Relay for Life Leads Nation Again It never gets old setting records when the recordsetting results provide significant funds for cancer research. With over 800 people participating in Father Ryan’s student-run Relay for Life, the Irish community established yet another record for the 12-hour event, raising more than $67,000 for the American Cancer Society for cancer research. This achievement makes the event the largest student-led Relay for Life in the country for the third straight year.
Mary Armbruster You’ll see this dynamo lending her energy and spirit to every football game as a cheerleader. That Irish enthusiasm is rooted in her faith and her commitment to social justice issues. A regular communicant, Eucharistic Minister, and volunteer at the Chapel, she has also been a leader of the Multi-Cultural Student Union, helping that organization address the issues of racism and immigration. In addition, she’s one of the chroniclers of our legacy as a member of the Yearbook staff. How important is her faith to her? She applied to six colleges, every one a Catholic institution. Look for her at Spring Hill next year.
Thomas Novelly What hasn’t this ubiquitous presence been involved in at Father Ryan? He’s a theatre regular and Rugby scrummer. A finalist for the Father Black Award and an outspoken voice for his faith. An accomplished magician with YouTube videos to prove it. He has also embodied the spirit of Rachel’s Challenge, championing that program’s voice of welcome and being instrumental in its growth and impact on the campus. He’ll be bringing his spirit and magic with him to Hillsdale College when he enrolls this fall. 5
Senior Callie Herrmann has been a part of the event since her freshman year and with Joe Butler was one of the organizers of Relay for Life this fall. The overnight activities include live music, games, and food, with many of the participants shaving their heads in a sign of solidarity with cancer survivors. The most touching moment is the Survivor Lap around the track to honor those who have battled cancer this year and the lighting of the luminaries at midnight, spelling out “HOPE.” As Herrmann said, “The biggest thing about Relay for Life is that it’s about the community gathering together. It’s an emotional night for some, and for others, it’s a celebration of life.”
St. Vincent de Paul Service Society In the first week of April ten students from Father Ryan High School participated in an alternative spring break. Another example of Father Ryan’s faith in action and one of the ways that our seniors earn induction into the St. Vincent de Paul Society. This is the sixth year students have given up their vacation to serve. In partnership with Homeworks for America, students served at Mepkin Abbey in Moncks Corner, SC. The abbey is run by the Trappist brothers. The average age of the monks is approximately 80 years old. With their age and dwindling numbers, they have difficulty maintaining their property. While at the monestary, the students had the arduous task of restoring one of the old houses on the property. For service such as this, and many others, twenty-one students were inducted into the St. Vincent de Paul Society this Spring. Requirements for the society include going above and beyond in service to the poor or the marginalized. This year students volunteered at an array of locations including Catholic Refugee Resettlement, Room in the Inn, and Olancho Aid in Honduras. There is one member of the society who was inducted last year: Kara Anton. She is joined this year by the following: John Bakewell, Shea Bradley, Grace Farone, Elena Ferguson, Erin Ferguson, Genevieve Hargrove, James Hausman, Elizabeth Haynes, Caroline Herrmann, Sarah Grace Jones, Claire Lumm, Francesca Mancuso, Nora Melton, MacKenzie Morales, Erin Mulloy, Thomas Novelly, Mary Margaret Payne, Marc Quitalig, Madeline Walters, A. Parker Staley, and Joseph Butler.
Graduates Continue Catholic Education Father Ryan’s emphasis on Faith, Knowledge and Service parallels the qualities that Catholic colleges and universities are looking for in their students. This year’s seniors have been accepted to and many are attending the following Catholic colleges: Aquinas College Ave Maria University Barry College Bellarmine University Belmont Abbey College Boston College Catholic University of America Christian Brothers University College of the Holy Cross DePaul University Loyola of Chicago Loyola of Maryland Loyola of New Orleans
Marquette University St. Bonaventure University St. Edward’s University St. Joseph’s University St. Louis University St. Mary’s College Seattle University Spring Hill College University of Dallas University of Dayton University of Notre Dame University of San Francisco Xavier University 6
A Voice In Every Community M
any a Father Ryan student is known by their voice…not just by its sound but by the message that is delivered. Callie Herrmann has a voice that leaves impressions in every room she enters. One of the co-chairs of Relay for Life this year, she led the school’s effort and produced what has become the expected—another year as the largest student-led Relay for Life in the nation. It’s a program that grows through the recruitment of many, and Callie rallied the troops in outstanding form this year. Callie was also one of the student panelists for Ryan Connections and as the entry for Callie Herrmann the VFW Voice for Democracy Essay Contest. In her essay she asked about the relevance of the U.S. Constitution and how different a country we’d live in under her “Alternative Constitution” based on selfish interests. Here’s an excerpt. “The ‘Alternative Constitution’ has no consideration for others, and without each other we are nothing. The unity, love, and inclusion that our country once stood for would vanish. This is certainly not what our Founding Fathers had in mind when they constructed the Constitution on the principles of liberty, unity, and selfless love. The U.S. Constitution still holds true to these goals and dreams of America.” In addition to these activities, Callie runs Cross Country. Next year her voice will be heard at the University of Dayton.
Liz Haynes’s voice emanates from several places, all of them connected to her soul. She is president of the Multi-Cultural Student Union where she led the group’s discussion and examination of immigration in Tennessee. That leadership earned her the Princeton Prize in Race Relations Award for 2013. But her voice rang out also through her saxophone, which she played proudly at Macy’s and at Far Rockaway, in addition to competitions throughout the Liz Haynes season. She’ll tell you that the experience at Thanksgiving was more meaningful than any other celebration, knowing that the Band’s presence made a difference in the lives of the citizens of a small city in Queens. She capped her Father Ryan career by adding her voice—behind the scenes—to the production of Godspell. She was the student director and set designer. Now, it’s on to Clemson University.
Lending Powerful Voices to Important Issues Father Ryan’s students have always provided insights and leadership on important issues, leading with actions and leading with words. Three members of the Class of 2013 provided editorials for publication, elevating discussions and effecting change. Here are excerpts from each.
Caroline Cheney The Immigrant Struggle February 2013
New country. New language. New life. Immigrants are no strangers to the unknown, but their bravery often goes unnoticed. It is easy to simplify and dehumanize the situation until you actually take the time to listen to them and their individual stories. I am a senior at Father Ryan High School and a member of the MultiCultural Student Union, a club that celebrates diversity, not just on campus, not only in the community, but in the country as a whole. In the last four years, we have hosted luncheons, a panel discussion, and film screenings on issues of race and civil rights, freedom of religion, and the integration of Father Ryan High School in the 1950s. As a country, we tend to overlook the courage it takes for immigrants to come to the United States. They enter a country that is not always welcoming with nothing but the desire for a better life. Very rarely do they have friends or family, prearranged jobs, or preset living arrangements. Stereotyping disregards the individual dignity of each immigrant. By listening to their stories, we recognized the dignity of each panelist. These members of our immediate community helped us to look beyond labels and experience the uniqueness of each person.
Liz Haynes Marching into History Thanksgiving 2012
My recipe for Thanksgiving today is a bit different than past years. Usually, Thanksgiving consists of turkey and dressing, family, football, and a nice long nap. Today, my Thanksgiving has a new recipe. It calls for 82 of my closest friends, traveling to New York, marching down 6th Avenue, carrying a history of 88 years, “Call Me Maybe”, “Gangnam Style”, and even a bit of hope for the people of New York. This opportunity is an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience, but there is something even more special about this parade. Sadly, New York is recovering from Hurricane Sandy, but the people of New York are resilient and have decided to have the parade in spite of what has happened. This event is such a part of New York. As a school, Father Ryan has always had a tradition of service, so we as a band have decided to raise money for the Macy’s/American Red Cross Fund. We want to show our support for the people of New York just as so many people have supported us over the years, and maybe even provide a bit of hope for the holiday season as New York continues to recover from the storm. I will remember today for the rest of my life. It may snow or rain, and it is very cold, but I have my entire band family around me as I experience one of the most spectacular, unforgettable moments of my entire life.
Ransom Patterson Awakening to History May 2012
The Civil Rights Movement. The Struggle for Religious Freedom. The Call to Celebrate Diversity. Ever since I began school, I’ve heard about these concepts in my History and Theology classes, and have always regarded them as positive ideas, but mostly they remained just that: abstract ideas. That is, until very recently, when the Multi-Cultural Student Union at my school—Father Ryan—presented a series of talks about civil rights and religious freedom. In a very real way I heard first-hand just what the struggle for such freedoms is like. While I was aware that most of the accusations against Muslims were false, I was still fascinated to hear a Muslim expert respond to them. And that got me thinking. I realized that the same is true of my faith, Catholicism. I’d like to think I know Catholicism pretty well, but I confess that beyond the basics, I find myself in unknown territory. I also realized that Catholics, while not currently under such violent attack as Muslims, are certainly the victims of stereotypes and myths. These myths spring from ignorance in just the same way as those regarding Muslims, and if the people proliferating these myths actually spoke with any informed Catholic, they would realize the fallacy of such statements. I now realize that the fight for civil rights is dearly fought and far from over. As long as ignorance and hatred conspire to proliferate inequality and injustice, all conscientious individuals must make their voices heard, or the world will be a very frightening place.
Celebrating Talents Across The Campus O

Mary Margaret Payne (Ave Maria University) Mary Margaret began her Father Ryan career as the Father Black Award winner, and she has continued to be a leader throughout the campus. Elected the Homecoming Queen as a Senior, she combines a commitment to her faith with athletic and scholastic interests. She runs both Cross Country and Track and is an officer of Mu Alpha Theta.
Sheila Johnson (Austin Peay State University) Sheila has been a vital force in the Father Ryan community in all that she has done, and she’s done this in the classroom and on the track despite facing obstacles that others haven’t had to face. For that determination and her accomplishments, she was a Bright Futures Award winner for the class of 2013.
(University of Notre Dame)
(University of Dayton)
From the soccer pitch to the community, Francesca has made her presence known. She provided important senior leadership and on-field talent to the 2012 State Champion soccer team, and she has been an active volunteer for the students at HarrisHillman school, all while performing well in her academic pursuits.
How many students get to start something new at Father Ryan? Victor looked around and saw a big hole—no ping-pong club. He formed the organization, invited all comers and turned the experience into more than a sports group—it opened doors for many throughout the school. He didn’t
stop with this. He was a member of Quizbusters and Model UN and also made time for Tennis and Cross Country.
Grace Farone (Middle Tennessee State University) And speaking of obstacles, how about facing cancer as a high school sophomore? That’s what Grace discovered, but she fought the disease and emerged cancer-free, which made her one of our honorees in the 2012 Relay for Life. But it didn’t define her Father Ryan experience. She played lacrosse, bowled, ran track, and contributed to the life of the entire campus.
Science Olympiad 2013 is the Most Successful Ever The Father Ryan Science Olympiad team became the most successful Science Olympiad team in Father Ryan history, bringing in five times as many medals as the school’s last visit to UT. Michael Malachowski and Ryan Thomas claimed First Place medals in both Robot Arm and in Mag-Lev. In addition, Will Braeuner and Peter Connor took home Third Place in Boomilever, Joseph Connor and George Edwards finished Fifth in Gravity Vehicle and Michael Saavedra and Daria Foster earned Sixth in Astronomy. Although eight students brought home medals, the Team earned its place at the State Tournament from the hard work and dedication of all 14 members of the Science Olympiad Team. 9
Teaching Help Defense, Differential Equations and Life It’s the ultimate conundrum. Are Father Ryan’s coaches better teachers because they coach or are they better coaches because they teach? Whichever answer you decide, it’s clear that Father Ryan’s students benefit in both respects. Father Ryan coaches have always been teachers. Whether on the field or the mat or the court, they have been models for their student-athletes and instructors in a range of life lessons. They may be teaching about forces in nature during the day and instructing students on how to be a force of nature on the field during the evening, but in both situations they are teaching these students about life. It’s a characteristic of our coaches, and while not unique in education, it is uniquely Father Ryan. Doug Bontrager’s ’81 (above) classes in Calculus not only challenge his students, they produce exceptional achievers. Mike Mascari ’95 (below) can make the same claim when it comes to Physics. As can Robin Dieterich ’73 in English or Pat Simpson ’74 in History or Jinx Cockerham in Computer Science. The results of AP and SAT tests confirm this classroom excellence, with over 90% of these coaches’ students earning qualifying scores on the AP exams and high marks on the SATs. It’s a testament to their commitment to the classroom experience and to the purpose of this school…education. Miss Hayes takes great pride in these coaches “running up the score”, because in doing so they are helping young men and women become better students and better people.
Students Earn Credit for College Setting a national standard among Catholic schools is no easy feat. Father Ryan has always prided itself on the academic abilities of its students who continue to shine in the national spotlight. The administration and faculty work to develop academic achievement in all its students and prepare them for higher education. As a result, Father Ryan students consistently attain high scores in standardized testing like the ACT and SAT. This year, a record number of students earned perfect subject scores on the ACT and SAT. On the ACT English, Douglas Arney, John Bakewell, Griffin Connolly, Callie Herrmann, Daniel Huetter, Stephanie Schwartz and Rustin Suray received perfect scores. In Reading, fourteen students earned perfect scores: Theresa Anderson, Douglas Arney, Kelsey Barrett, Erica Bush, Griffin Connolly, Joseph Connor, Alexis Eckton, Sam Edelen, Michael Malachowski, Joseph McCluney, Ransom Patterson, Tanner Roarty, Stephanie Schwartz and Tyler Stuessi. Sam Edelen had a perfect score on Science and Joseph Connor on Math. On the SAT, Kelsey Barrett, Ransom Patterson and Cole Pickney had perfect scores on Critical Reading; John Bakewell on U.S. History; and Joseph Connor on both the Chemistry and Math 2 Subject Tests. Students have also risen to the challenge of AP courses. These courses prepare students for the rigors of college Class 2012 classes with a Rank Average year-long study on Deciles ACT* a specific subject.

For the past six years, the number of AP exams has increased and the pass rate—a grade of 3 or higher—has remained a constant 80% or above, with many earning college credit for their scores. It is a story of academic success that reflects the academic challenges our students embrace.
