With the frenetic events surrounding the close of one school year and the planning for the next, I realized I needed to take a moment and appreciate all we have accomplished as a school. God grants us many gifts; He lifts us up so we can reach our goals, He pushes us on to victories, and He stands beside us in the mundane simplicity of the everyday. So as I walked in silence through the quiet halls and looked at trophies and lockers, lunch tables and desks, bookshelves and banners, I wanted to stop and be thankful for all He has given us this year. Members of our elite community have earned state swimming championships and STEM Team victories. We have been recognized publically for our athleticism and our coaching. One of our outstanding students even earned the distinction of fourteen years of perfect attendance. We are artists and musicians, volunteers and scholars, performers and educators. The list of our accomplishments is very long and shows we are more than just a team or individual. We are a core of strength and intellect. We are an aggregate of poise and integrity. But what I realized while quietly reflecting on the lives lived in these halls, is we are more than just our successes. We are so much greater than our awards and achievements because we are a family who has shown strength in adversity, and we stand together in good times and bad. Life is not all pomp and circumstance. Living is hard and entails difficulties and frustrations. What makes us different, is in our darkest hours and our greatest struggles, we stand together and lift each other above our fears. The true sign of a life well lived is one which goes beyond ourselves and positively impacts those around us. And I saw that life lived in those who graced our halls and cheered us on to every form of victory, whether it be in a classroom, on a field, or quietly in a hallway. We are a united front, founded in our faith in God, and in each other. God has granted us many triumphs, but He stands by us even when we falter. With His strength, we came together as a community to say prayers for one of our own as he faced medical difficulties. When a team soared but missed the top ranking, we united in solidarity by linking arms and singing our alma mater. And we spread our spirit beyond our school by volunteering in efforts to better our community, and by setting the example of grace and determination to those who hope to one day become a Viking. There are just as many examples of support as there are of achievement, and for this I am proud. A great man, when asked about the potential of our students to succeed, said something which has stuck with me. He said “Ask me again in ten years. Then we will see how they turn out as men.” This was the perfect summation of what I truly wish for every student who has, and will, attend our school, and what I see reflected in our faculty, alumni, parents, and donors. By sharing in our accomplishments and supporting each other in our difficulties, we are helping to form men and women of integrity. We are learning that as a group we can achieve, as a team we can soar, and with the help of God and each other, we can overcome. This has been a year of amazing victories, but more importantly, of lives joined together to form one Verot family. His Blessings,

SENIORS SERVICE DAY As freshmen, the Class of 2015

began their time at Bishop Verot with a day of service during their Freshman Retreat. This long-standing tradition is a great way to bring the freshman class together, for a unified purpose, and while they form lasting relationships, they also learn the importance of giving back. And what better way to conclude their four years at Verot, than a Senior Service and Retreat Day? Four years older and wiser, the students headed out into the community, to make a difference. They worked outdoors at LARC, Special Equestrians, Habitat for Humanity, and Special Populations. Students also helped out at Salvation Army and Harry Chapin Food Bank. After putting in several hours of hard work, the class gathered downtown at Centennial Park for lunch and prayer. Father Goodyear spoke of their time here and offered inspiration for their future. The high school years will always be remembered for their academics and athletics, as well as the monumental events like Homecoming Week, Theater productions, class trips, clubs, and Prom. It is our hope the time spent in the community will also be as impactful and an experience that will carry on in their adult life. BG

A LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT My Fellow Vikings, It is hard to believe yet another school year has come and gone. We have accomplished so much in this last school year. Our pride in the accomplishments of our students cannot be measured. The community of Bishop Verot is an integral part of our students’ success. This community is comprised of so many thoughtful, caring and generous people. Beyond the faculty and staff, we have our parents, alumni and friends. At any event, academic, athletic, or fundraising, you will see our parents and alumni alongside volunteers whose only connection might be their commitment to quality Catholic education, giving of their time, talent, and treasure. We are continually thankful for the blessing of this comradery. In this issue of the Black & Gold, you will see the recap of our fundraising efforts for the 2014-2015 school year. Your support helps continue the mission of Bishop Verot. Your gifts to the Annual Appeal, sponsoring and attending our fundraising events, support of the Athletic Booster Club, and volunteering in so many ways helps our students today while also helping future generations. As we prepare for the new school year, please keep our school community in your prayers. Non Excidet, Gina Lombardo Director of Development

t has been a while since the Anderson Theater stage has included song and dance in its performances, but this Spring, Conrad Birdie shook up the theater. Bishop Verot’s rendition of Bye, Bye Birdie was the first in what Director Lisa Stevens hopes will be a long list of musicals. Her passion for the stage, and musicals specifically, dates back to the days she was center stage as a student herself. She was taught under the direction of Miss Celeste Day, with help from long time Verot teacher, Theater Director and friend, Miss Judy Springston. On opening night of Bye, Bye Birdie in April, Miss Stevens addressed a group of supporters. She shared the dream of a 15 year old Viking, with a goal she was about to see come to fruition as the curtain opened that night. As she spoke of the impact Miss Day and Miss Springston had on her teenaged self, and the experience of facing the challenges that come with being a performer, especially in front of peers, her passion was evident. And the desire to work with today’s Vikings sharing that experience was clear. In addition to Bye, Bye Birdie, with Vikings sharing their gifts of singing and acting, Art Department students also shared their talents through photography, painting, drawing, ceramics, and woodworking.

Students were recognized in local art competitions, with a win in the Art Chalk Block competition at the Fort Myers ArtFest and placing in the Lee County Language Art Fair and the Alliance for the Arts Young Artists Juried Visual Arts Show.

I now live in Los Angeles and am working as an actor in commercials, film, television, and voiceover. The experiences that I had in high school definitely helped me get started on the right foot for my career and for that I am very grateful.” And Ashley (Harris) Talbert ’05 says, “My favorite memories at Bishop Verot are from the plays and musicals I participated in. I loved meeting new people each production while also having a blast with my old friends. I learned so much about being part of a team and how to be reliable.”

successful young people, and the experiences outside the classroom become just as important as the time spent in the classroom. A vibrant arts program including band, photography, studio arts, and performing arts all help in the forming of a well-rounded successful Viking. Memories of former students and their experience on the stage bring inspiration for the future. April Moreau ’08 shared, “My involvement in the theatre program at Verot helped me realize from a young age my passion for acting and my desire BISHOP VEROT ALUMNI MAGAZINE

Miss Stevens, an alumni herself, hopes that she can offer Bishop Verot students the same experiences, fun, and friendships that changed her life. BG

ack in April, Tyler Adams ‘06, was joined by family, friends, past teachers and coaches to watch the fifth episode of The Amazing Race. Tyler had a starring role, with his ‘blind date” partner, racing around the world, accepting every challenge that came their way, in a quest to be the last team standing and winning big, $1,000,000! What no one knew that evening was that he had already finished the race the winner! How hard was it to keep that a secret? Keeping the secret was almost as hard as racing! I could not tell anyone where I had placed or any of the countries I had visited for nearly

5 months. Having an experience that incredible that you can’t share with friends and family is really tough but knowing they were all going to get to relive it with me each week made it a little more bearable. Can you tell us the story of how you came to be chosen for the Amazing Race? Was this a dream of yours? Since I was a kid I thought it would be such a cool experience to travel and compete on The Amazing Race. In early 2014, Colin Rady ‘04 and I applied for the show but never heard back. Then in May 2014, I moved to LA and, in my first week of living in Santa Monica, the lead casting director approached me at a bar in my neighborhood. She

BLACK & GOLD | Summer 2015

asked me if I wanted to be on Survivor, I politely declined and then interjected “but I would love to be on The Amazing Race.” It turned out she worked on both shows and we started chatting and exchanging information. Next thing I knew, I was at an on camera interview later that week. What was your greatest challenge in High School, and how do you suppose that experience has helped you? When I was a junior at Verot, my friends and I did an all day scavenger hunt around SWFL. We had 4 teams of 4 and a list of over 200 things that we had to do or find in order to earn points. The competition lasted for 8 hours and when we all got back to the finish line we were a mess. We had chugged milk, eaten every item on the McDonald’s dollar menu, shaved our heads, climbed trees at the Edison home, the list went on and on. Although I didn’t know it at the time, it was definitely the best training I could have asked for! Was there any one person here at Verot that made a significant impact on you, or whose influence was helpful in the challenges of the Amazing Race? I played basketball all 4 years at Verot and my time in the gym holds some of my favorite memories. Coach Herting always had an BISHOP VEROT ALUMNI MAGAZINE

▲Coach Matt Herting, Tyler Adams ’06, John Keim ’06, Mrs. Lynn Knox, Leighton Elliott ‘05

incredible balance between working hard and having fun. Basketball was serious and we were playing to win, but we always found time for a good laugh. I approached The Amazing Race with a similar attitude. I wanted to win, but I also knew this was a once in a lifetime experience and I wanted to try my best to have a little fun and enjoy the ride! Another Verot influence I have to mention is Mr. Boulton. He always had incredible stories to tell and pictures to share from his trips. My Spanish might not be the best reflection of his teaching but he inspired my initial curiosity for travel. Can you share a story from the show that your classmates/bv alumni would be interested in? We were in Africa and for the final challenge that day we had to walk the animal of our choice to the finish line. There was a camel, donkey, zebra, and a gazelle. We picked the BISHOP VEROT ALUMNI MAGAZINE

zebra because it appeared to be the fastest of all the options. We had about 150yds to walk and within about 50 ft our zebra started going nuts! It was bucking and jumping, it almost kicked me in the shoulder and almost kicked Laura in the face. Through it all, I refused to let it go and we ended up winning the leg and a trip to New Zealand. It was the one story I couldn’t hold back from telling to a few of my friends when I got home. They would ask how the race went and I would just say….”It was incredible, I wrangled a zebra.”

Besides work…I’d love to plan a trip to South America for next year, but all my friends from Verot keep filling up my calendar with weddings!! BG

Tell us about what you are doing now? What’s next? After the race, I returned to working on my most recent venture, 2 Truths and a Lie, a mobile app that helps you break the ice with someone new. It has gotten some great traction with users, now all we need is some traction with investors! www.2Truthsapp.com Summer 2015 | BLACK & GOLD
