Cathedral leads the way in educational transformation Total iPad integration for the 2012-2013 school year puts Cathedral students on the forefront of academic excellence.


a message from the president Dear Friend of Cathedral, I recently picked up a copy of the summer/fall edition of the Highlights. The picture on the cover is of Br. Chester Freel, Joe Dezelan, and me. Br. Chester is the Provincial Superior for the Congregation of Holy Cross, Midwest Province, and Joe Dezelan was in the final month of his service as chairman of Cathedral’s Board of Directors.

“… the school’s willingness to innovate, take risks and aspire to be an educational leader is also at the heart of the school’s success over all these years.”

That day in September marked the formal re-affiliation of Cathedral with the Congregation of Holy Cross and the Holy Cross Brothers. That reconnection with this religious order, the founding teachers and administrators of this remarkable school in 1918, has had a very positive impact on our faculty, staff, and our students during this school year. I am convinced that this reconnection with Holy Cross will be the accomplishment I will be most proud of as I leave Cathedral’s campus for the last time. Cathedral has been an incredible success since its founding and I am convinced that the school’s Holy Cross heritage, Holy Cross educational philosophy, and Holy Cross charisms largely explain this 94-year success story. I am also convinced that the school’s willingness to innovate, take risks, and aspire to be an educational leader is also at the heart of the school’s success over all these years. In this edition of the Highlights, you will read about Cathedral’s innovative push toward 21st century schooling and our move to a 1:1 technology environment.

Spring/Summer 2012

Beginning in the fall of 2012, all freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will have an iPad. This will follow a 2011-12 school year during which each member of the teaching faculty worked with a MacBook and iPad2. Faculty members were engaged in an aggressive professional development program to prepare for using this new technology in the teaching-learning process. The classroom of tomorrow will look very different than the classroom of my high school experience of so many years ago. We are prepared to pursue the school’s vision of “being the model for all high schools as she (Cathedral) profoundly shapes the way students think, serve and lead.” So some things will never change... our Catholic faith tradition and our Holy Cross educational philosophy and Holy Cross value system. And some things will change as often as necessary to ensure that we are providing a holistic educational experience unmatched by any Catholic high school in the country. Thank you for your prayers and support that make this life-changing work possible. Respectfully,

Stephen J. Helmich President

in this issue In this issue, we focus on the introduction of the iPad 1:1 program here at Cathedral. The term, 1:1, refers to what is known as ‘anywhere, anytime’ education programs where each student has a computer tablet or laptop. Studies show that providing students with these tools help schools engage “the digital generation” by creating and customizing individual (or 1:1) learning experiences. At Cathedral, we saw this as critical for the future of our students who will live and work in a world very different than that of their parents. According to a white paper on “Learning in the 21st Century:”

REFLECTION

Young Americans coming of age in this century—the 70 million people born between 1982 and 2000—live in a world that is dramatically more complex than it was just a few years ago. In a remarkably short period of time, the world and its people, economies, and cultures have become inextricably connected, driven largely by the Internet, innovations

in mobile computers and devices, and low-cost telecommunications technology. Today, information is readily available from numerous sources. With a computer, the Internet, and a search engine, much of the information students once spent the entire school year learning can be acquired in a fraction of the time or on an as-needed basis. These technology innovations democratize information, giving students direct access to the building blocks of their future knowledge—organized, indexed, and affordable content, resources, and instruction available 24 by 7. It also shifts the locus of control to the student, enabling them to pursue learning both in school (formal learning) and outside of school (informal learning).

Four years ago, I was nothing but hard, unmolded clay longing for the warmth of my Potter’s hands. I tried molding myself, but I was in desperate need of God’s skillful and caring guidance. This is why I am so thankful to Cathedral. God used Cathedral to mold and shape me according to His wonderful plan. There, God helped me not only realize my passions, but He also helped me put them into action almost every single day. Thanks to God working though Cathedral, I am now a beautiful and useful piece of precious pottery. Thank you, Cathedral for introducing me to my Potter’s hands and most of all, Thank you, God, for putting Cathedral High School on my path. Molly Carter, ‘12 Cathedral Highlights

New technology connects Cathedral’s past with its future through the new 1:1 initiative.


a message from the principal Dear Cathedral Alums and Parents, This time of year is always one of mixed blessings–a time of seeing successful conclusions of projects, of classes, and the school year, and also a time of preparing to say good-bye to faculty and staff members with whom we have worked for many years. Although no one is able to be exactly replaced, others will bring their particular gifts to these positions. At this time, I would like to make you aware of the faculty and staff members who will be retiring at the end of this year. Mrs. Josephine Cavanaugh came to Cathedral in 1977. For these thirty-five years, she has made our Catholic Theology live for her students. Her teaching is combined with great compassion, much skill, and thoroughly caring for each of her students. She tops her presentations off with a smile or a chuckle shared with the class. She is retiring to spend more time with her husband, Tom, both here and in Florida. We will certainly miss Mrs. Jo Cavanaugh! Mr. Terry F. Fox came to Cathedral in 1991, where he has served as head of the Theatre Department for twenty-one years. He certainly brought our Theatre Department to the forefront of high school drama programs and can proudly boast of many of his students who have gone on to work in theatres professionally around the country. His final theatre production was Beauty and the Beast, which was a huge success this spring!

Swing Choir, as well as Keyboarding Class. She has presented many seasonal music productions and has worked to provide singers for the musicals in the Theatre Department. As Elaine retires from Cathedral, she plans to still be directing her church choir and will have more time to visit children and grandchildren. Sister Lynne Matteson, OSF, came to Cathedral High School in 1990. She has taught World and United States History and Spanish to our students until 2002. After a sabbatical, she returned to Cathedral as my Administrative Assistant until April 17th of this year, when she retired for health reasons and will be returning to her Motherhouse in Oldenburg, Indiana, where she will continue working part-time. We will miss Sister Lynne, also. “There is a time to live…,” a time to teach, a time to relax and to enjoy the fruits of many years of labor. We thank Jo Cavanaugh, Terry F. Fox, Elaine Holloway, and Sr. Lynne Matteson for these combined 92 years of commitment to the vision and mission, to the students, faculty and staff, and to all of us in the Cathedral family.

“This time of year is always one of mixed blessings–a time of seeing successful conclusions of projects, of classes, and the school year, and also a time of preparing to say good-bye…”

Blessings,

Dave Worland Principal

Connecting with the future of education Cathedral’s 1:1 Program the culmination of two years of intensive planning When students show up for the first day of school in August, they won’t only be studying history, they’ll be making it. An idea that started in 2009 was brought to reality in the summer of 2012 making Cathedral the largest Catholic high school in Indiana to integrate a 1:1 iPad program. The 1:1 Program is part of a longrange, strategic plan approved by the Cathedral Board of Trustees in the fall of 2010. President Stephen Helmich says the decision to move to 1:1 computing opens the door for Cathedral to take her already-robust academic reputation to an even higher level and help prepare students for careers that may not even exist today. A study published by the Journal of Technology, Learning and Assessment confirms that schools associated with 1:1 programs see increased technology and increased student engagement, interest, and achievement. “Cathedral, as part of its vision, strives to be a model for all high schools and this program is part of that vision as schools move into a more digital learning environment,” says Rolly Landeros, Cathedral’s Chief Information Officer and one of the prime architects of the 1:1 program along with Julie Barthel, Director for Professional Development.

Cathedral, however, unlike other schools who may have adopted iPad programs, will not restrict a student’s use of applications (apps) or social media. “We strongly believe students should have the right to install any app that will enhance their learning style and educational experience,” says Principal Dave Worland. “This will allow each iPad to be individualized to a specific student’s instructional needs plus promote creativity in exploring new learning opportunities.” Allowing students to use their iPads for personal use is also a learning experience in itself. “We are teaching students to be good citizens of the digital world they live in,” Landeros says. Helping young adults use technology responsibly as well as proficiently is one of the major goals of the Cathedral program. The cost of the iPad ($499) will be offset by the need for fewer textbooks and equipment such as graphing calculators (which themselves can cost upwards of $100) with the ultimate goal being that Cathedral will be textbook-free by 2016. Not only will this provide a cost savings to parents, but the students benefit from having access to more engaging material than can be found in a printed textbook, having more up-to-date information, plus the ability to interact with the content in a very individualized manner.

Spring/Summer 2012

Creating a digital learning environment at Cathedral Going to a 1:1 program, such as Cathedral has done, is about much more than just each student having an iPad. The two-year integration process has touched every facet of the school, including: FACILITIES • Using the latest wireless technology • Creating a New Technology Support Center within the library • Developing a learning and training lab for faculty, staff, and students • Creating an area for the student-integration team • Revamping the library with new chairs, tables, and movable book stacks to better accommodate technology use STUDENT GROUPS • Bringing together a core group of students and training them to help other students (and teachers) use the technology • Becoming student technology leaders in the school and helping socialize the culture change with their peers TECHNOLOGY • Investing in network upgrades over the past four years in preparation for Fall 2012


about irish “The iPad allows for more individualization of instruction,” says Barthel. “There are thousands of educational applications out there. It’s a very technologically rich environment for our teachers. From iTunes University where you can take classes at MIT, Stanford, or Harvard to teachers being able to create their own digital textbooks, the 1:1 program helps us teach a new type of students— the generational learners.”

Here are some of the ways Cathedral teachers will be using iPads to enhance learning: “We decided in all of our biology classes to use the newly released Miller & Levine digital biology textbook. I am really excited about this as I feel it will keep our kids engaged, reading, and learning how cool biology really is!” Jennifer Whitacre Biology teacher

“I am most excited for what the iPad will allow for my debate classes. I am planning to use an app that will allow students to give constructive • Using an ultra-high-speed Internet connection feedback to their peers during an actual debate. • Creating 75 wireless access points on campus We use blogs outside of the classroom now, • Backing up equipment with a diesel generator to which are a tool that I will continue to use, but ensure continuous connection even in power failure with every student having an iPad, they will TEACHERS be able to provide real-time feedback and • Providing all teachers with an iPad during the have interactive discussions 2011-2012 school year to allow time to become proficient and explore curriculum • Participating in biweekly technology meetings on applications and textbooks available for iPads

Integrating iPads into the classroom Julie Barthel, Cathedral’s Director for Professional Development, has been working with faculty and staff throughout the 2011-2012 school year to integrate the iPad technology into the educational culture at the school. “This is not just a new tool, but a new way of approaching learning,” she says, “it’s transformational.” The colleges and the job market that Cathedral graduates will be entering are globally oriented, mobile, and technologically savvy. Our students need to be, too, Landeros says.

“Beyond this, students in my debate classes will have a world of information at their fingertips every single class period. So much of our discussion depends on knowing statistics and the most recent information. Now we can have many students looking up different sources, synthesizing opinions, or analyzing rhetoric and all of this can be done in class instead of at home. Learning in a social community is incredibly more beneficial.” April Long English teacher

about irish “The iPad already has several practical uses in the theater. We use it as a remote for our theater lighting console, as a sketch pad, a shop tool (level app), and a convenient way to take notes. Currently all of the sound tracks for this year’s “Beauty and the Beast” were played from an iPod touch. We would also like to someday in the future integrate our entire sound system with the iPad. A lot of technology is used in the theater, but the addition of iPad is making a huge impact.” Michael Moffatt Theater teacher

“One iPad app I am really excited about is Flashcardlet. Students and teachers can create flashcards for any content area. This is especially useful with vocabulary. All of the cards for our current Spanish I and II textbooks are ALREADY created.” Kim Jamell Spanish teacher

“In the media center, we’ve been pushing Indianapolis Marion County Public Library’s digital resources — especially for research material. Our reading clubs still love the print versions of their books, but we’ve been loading devices with Young Adult titles, and sharing favorites through Google Groups and Shelfari. “We’re changing up the layout of the library to be more studentcentered: more comfortable collaboration areas, and, of course, wired study spots for charging devices. Our collection will focus on digital resources and Common Core standards. Information literacy is a key aspect of our research skills training.” Jennifer Herron Librarian

“I am very excited about the upcoming year and how we will all be using technology in our classrooms! In Ceramics, we are currently using Google almost daily to search for images and information to use with our clay projects. Additionally, next year my students will all be creating digital sketchbooks on their new iPads! These books will include photographs of all their works both in progress and when they are complete, with records of glazing success and challenges.” Sara Greene Fine arts teacher

“Last week, I was attending a conference and I used my iPad and an app called Explain Everything that allows me to insert notes, documents, and photos into a presentation. As my flight went over the Mississippi, I took a photo of it and inserted into a ‘real time’ addition to my “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” test review that I had created. I also created a series of videos that I uploaded to YouTube which the students watched in class and then could review again at home.” Liz Browning English teacher

New Holy Cross Values Award recognizes holistic excellence Cathedral High School has lived Holy Cross values since the school opened on September 13, 1918, when Bishop Chartrand and the Brothers of Holy Cross welcomed boys from Indianapolis. On the school’s 93rd birthday on September 13, 2011, Cathedral formally re-affiliated with the Brothers of Holy Cross, logically connecting the school’s past, present and future with Holy Cross charisms such as spiritual growth, zeal (or the pursuit of excellence), commitment to education of the whole child, inclusion, and fostering of a family spirit. As a way to celebrate and emphasize these Holy Cross charisms within the Catholic school community, Cathedral introduced the Holy Cross Values Award in 2012. This award and a one-time scholarship in the amount of $500 will be presented at each Catholic grade school from which at least one student is coming to Cathedral each year going forward. The student selected will be someone who, according to the principal and faculty, embodies these Holy Cross charisms by demonstrating the following:

COMMENCEMENT

2012

“A conglomeration of spunk, strength, humility and fearlessness” Senior speaker defines the uniqueness of the Class of 2012 When I received the news that I was chosen as this year’s graduation speaker, I contemplated heavily what I might be able to share with you. I, too, am still learning what life is all about, and figuring out what direction I am going. I wondered how I could provide any wisdom or guidance.

English teacher April Long was selected as the graduation speaker by the members of the Class of 2012. These are her remarks in entirety. Bishop Coyne, Mr. Schaefer, Mr. Helmich, Mr. Worland, faculty and staff, families, my mom who drove from Cincinnati to be here, and most of all, the Class of 2012, thank you for the honor of speaking to you today. Some years ago someone compared me to a weed. Initially I was taken aback, though this person went on to explain: This is a good thing: Weeds are tenacious, they’re hardy, and they can grow anywhere in any environment. As unbecoming as the comparison may initially seem, it has never left my mind.

However, as I started thinking about what life has taught me thus far, and how I could share it with you, I realized that maybe I was meant to speak to you. We’ve been at CHS about the same number of years, so we have experienced a similar journey, but most appropriately, I came to realize you guys are like weeds, too. Just like weeds, you’re competitive, frustrating, masters of survival. Just like weeds, you’re ambitious and energetic. Weeds are spiky and stubborn. They can thrive in the sparsest and rockiest soil. And sometimes, they are seldom appreciated for their thorny virtues. But no matter what—weeds grow. If anything, that is their defining characteristic. Let us also not forget that as they grow, with time, they all bloom. How appropriate, too, that Father’s homily yesterday pointed out these same characteristics in you.

Every class has a spirit. Every class brings a tone to their senior year. Every class leaves its mark. But it seems your class is harder to pin down. At first this was disconcerting, but it came to be your mark: that you are beyond definition. However, after asking many of my beloved colleagues, what they COULD say about you is that they saw your growth over your last four years. And this is what we love about you. Though you are enigmatic, and tend to elude any one defining adjective, it is true that no matter the environment you were placed in, no matter what anyone else labeled you as, no matter if at times you were spiky and challenging, in the end, you bloomed. You grew to beautiful unique heights, and you put down roots at Cathedral High School that define you. I think this is the best wisdom I can offer you. Take what you have learned at Cathedral and remind yourselves often that there isn’t some kind of “perfect end goal” you are aiming for. The messy parts of life, the parts that don’t go your way, are the parts that will show you the most about your character. Our journeys are all about absorbing the changes, bending with the sharp turns, cradling the new and peacefully letting go of the old. This is what makes us resilient people—that we can thrive anywhere and we are not easily destroyed by those things that don’t go as we had planned. Continued on page 22, see “Class of 2012”

about irish

Class of 2012 (con’t. from page 21) Can you let go of some ideal you have in your head and picture yourself flourishing wherever your path takes you? It is definitely commendable to persevere toward a goal, but can’t we all agree there is an entirely different and admirable type of courage required in letting go? I had my 10-year reunion last fall and we did something kind of unique. We all wrote letters to ourselves on our last day of high school and put them in a time capsule to be opened at our reunion. While I mostly cringed my way through the whole letter, there was one thing that my high school-self said that was pretty insightful. I wrote, “My biggest fear is that I will never be able to replace these high school experiences or the friends I have made and kept for so long. My biggest excitement is that maybe I won’t have to.” 22

Cathedral Highlights

And that is actually true. You will meet new people and make new friends, but you will never need to replace the memories or let go of the friends you’ve made here. Life just gets bigger, you add to who you are, and people continually make an impact on you and become part of you.

writing, but also life. This journey (not just high school, but the years beyond) is about BECOMING. If we ever resign ourselves to some end point, some place when we have reached our full potential, then what is the point? The process of creating ourselves is what gives life meaning.

I’ve never seen a bond like the one students create at Cathedral. Sometimes in my Facebook news feed, a former student’s post will pop up and say something as simple as, “I miss Cathedral so much right now.”

As e.e. cummings said, “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” Just think about the stories that accompany the lives of this brilliant faculty and staff seated behind me. So many of them model this idea. They live it. This is why we go back to grad school, pursue new careers, move across the country, study abroad, learn new languages, and chase after love. Because in all of these adventures we figure out more about who we are.

I hope you see it now; I hope you know how lucky you are now, but it’s hard to see it from where you are. Sometimes it takes a little distance to remind you what is closest to your heart. Ernest Hemingway, one of my favorite authors, said, “We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” I think we can agree he is not only talking about

Spring/Summer 2012

In my short five years at Cathedral, I have had the opportunity to be a part of many things that let me witness the fervor of your class from


about irish the time you entered as freshmen until your last days. There are scenes of your last four years that are now part of my teaching story. I wanted to share a few, because they illustrate your goodness, your goofiness, and your impact on this school. I have watched Lana Kinney (arguable the tiniest person in your class) stand up to Quincy Giles (arguably the largest) during a cross-examination in debate class and declare that athletics are over emphasized with an unfaltering confidence. I have video proof, and it will be shown for years to come. You guys are fearless. I love that to celebrate the end of the year I told my Advanced Debate class we could have a breakfast party. Most students would bring in doughnuts, muffins, juice, or maybe some bagels and cream cheese. But not these guys. They show up with griddles, sausage and bacon, waffle irons and batter. You guys are creative and outside-of-the-box thinkers. When he was a sophomore, Bobby Cohoat infamously became the first student to ever make me cry. But as a peer mentor his senior year, he brought tears to my eyes in a completely different way. Bobby changed lives in that class. My freshmen students told me that he would stay on the phone for hours explaining Biology homework to them. He also showed up on a Saturday and brought McDonald’s to a few guys playing basketball. Just because. When my students related these stories to me, you could tell that it meant the world to them. You guys are role models. You are selfless and you are humble.

I have sat in a room with Anthony Corsaro as he planned to enter a full gym, dressed in leopard tights and a fur coat while “Welcome to the Jungle” played. People rarely got to see his dedication and commitment behind the scenes, but I have listened while he wrestled with the perfect words to put in his speeches, always wanting to capture the spirit of his class. Anthony and the other class officers, ignited the Junior Jungle two years ago, and our spirit assemblies will never be the same.You guys are confident, and game changers. So that is who you are to me, Class of 2012. You are a conglomeration of spunk, strength, humility and fearlessness. While grading research papers, I came across this poem one of my students chose to analyze, and I couldn’t help but share it with you. It is called “if ” by e.e. cummings: If freckles were lovely, and day was night, And measles were nice and a lie warn’t a lie, Life would be delight,— But things couldn’t go right For in such a sad plight I wouldn’t be I. If earth was heaven and now was hence, And past was present, and false was true, There might be some sense But I’d be in suspense For on such a pretense You wouldn’t be you.

If fear was plucky, and globes were square, And dirt was cleanly and tears were glee Things would seem fair,— Yet they’d all despair, For if here was there We wouldn’t be we. As Cummings states, all of the circumstances that have shaped and molded us make exactly who we are. Not just the good times, not just the times that work out how we expected them to, but all of it. It all works together perfectly to write your story. Who would we be if it all went as we planned? How would we grow if it was always easy? In what ways would we stretch if we never had to change our course? I leave you with this thought: Doug Larson, a columnist, said this about weeds: A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill EXCEPT for learning how to grow in rows. And this is how we will remember you—that you can make us laugh and cry, you can change the game, and you can exhibit growth no matter what. But above all, you will never do what everyone before you has done. THAT is admirable. And that is what makes you, YOU.

irish athletics From the locker room talk given by Mike and Joe Kelly before the championship game. Joe, class of ’74, played on the very first Cathedral state finals team in 1973:

“This team played arguably the most difficult schedule in Cathedral history in both the teams we played and how many trips we had to take to play those games. These players are a credit to their parents and to the work ethic created by Cathedral High School. It has been a great pleasure to be a part of such a great group of young men.” - Rick Streiff, Head football coach

“The Kelly family is a third-generation Cathedral family and has been part of the school for well over 50 years. We are all part of a very special school that not only excels academically and athletically but spiritually, as well. We are not only one of the best schools in this state but across the nation. “This will be our 12th appearance in a state championship game. “We have eight titles. “After a victory Saturday, we will have won 75% of our championship games! “Head Coach Streiff has a winning coaching percentage of 78%, six state titles, and one runner-up. He is currently tied for fourth alltime in state titles. And I don’t believe he is done yet. “We have also had six Mental Attitude Award winners­­—tied for the most in the state. Note: Jacob Bailey, ’12, was named Mental Attitude Award winner in the 2011 game.

“We continue to send a multitude of Cathedral football players across the nation to all divisions of college football! And we have put at least a dozen or so players in the NFL. “They say the heart and character of a team is the ability to use a set of mental and ethical traits to overcome an obstacle through excellence while in the face of adversity and achieve victory. “This has been the way of Cathedral football from the beginning. Your team is the epitome of what we stand for as a school and a football team. They don’t call us the Fighting Irish by accident. Now, it’s your turn to go out make history for your team and this school! Make us proud!”

Cathedral defeated Union County (NJ) 41-3 in the quarterfinals, Colorado Springs (CO) 36-3 in the semifinals and Utah United (UT) 51-0 in the final. The tournament was held in front of large crowds at Rio Tinto Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah, home of the MLS Real Salt Lake team. The team was captained by senior Cathedral student Sam Snemis, while Drake Myers was the tournament’s leading scorer and classmate Joe Schroeder was named tournament MVP.

The Spiking Irish can boast about another first in women’s Cathedral volleyball history. Every senior in the program has been named ICGSA Academic All-State for the first time ever. Congratulations to Ellie Dedinsky, Keely McGrath, Gail Moriarity, Audrey Rougraff and Erika Voigt for earning Academic All-State Honorable Mention honors.

Winning its 18th City Title, Cathedral brings home number nine in a row!

Big congratulations to the entire Varsity team, and in particular the seniors, for the most successful season in club history. Congratulations also go out to the JV team for a strong second place finish in the state tournament.

The Irish winning offense was led by Jazzmine McDonald and Olivia Kluger. Defense led by Keely McGrath and handling “the rock” was Sara Homan delivering assist after assist.

& Holy Cross Values By Katie Lewis, theology teacher Vision defines the aims and goals of an institution for its path toward the future. Cathedral’s vision encompasses much more than a simple path though; it embodies a respect for the heritage of the school. “Cathedral High School, a Catholic institution in the Holy Cross tradition will be the model for all high schools.” It is through our tradition in Holy Cross that we are able to serve as this model. From Holy Cross’ beginnings in France, the mission has always been broader than any one particular place. There is an intentional goal to reach out to the Holy Cross organizations throughout the world. So this past summer, Cathedral sent two faculty members with eight students to the Holy Cross Leadership Conference held at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. We had the opportunity to meet and develop a relationship with the other Holy Cross high schools. Guy Valponi, a senior who attended the conference, described the week as, “A unique experience to meet people who attend schools very similar to our own.”

Joseph in Montreal. We will be joining with other Holy Cross schools to make this spiritual journey.

Educating hearts and minds Through our conversations at the leadership conference, we have adopted themes that other Holy Cross high schools use. These themes will rotate each year so that a student will experience each of the four themes throughout their tenure at Cathedral. The four themes are Building Respect, Educating Hearts and Minds, Being Family, and Bringing Hope. These four themes were developed out of the main teachings of Blessed Basil Moreau, the founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross. The themes are used to guide liturgies and to help the students focus on the ideas of Holy Cross. The Charisms of each Holy Cross school are unique because each school has a unique need that it fulfills. The charisms that we have adopted are: Faith, family, educating hearts and minds, hope, inclusiveness and diversity, option for the poor, and zeal. Students are directed to think of these charisms in relationship with their spirituality and faith life.

This summer, Cathedral is offering students the opportunity to make a pilgrimage to The Oratory of Saint

Cathedral in Super Bowl Entertainment By Benjamin Sasin, ’14 Four Cathedral students seized a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as they were watched by the 114 million viewers during the national anthem and halftime show for Super Bowl XLVI held February 5, 2012, in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The broadcast of the game on NBC broke the record for the most-watched program in American television history. The Indianapolis Children’s Choir (ICC), with Freshman Madison Jones ’15, began the Super Bowl by singing the national anthem with pop star Kelly Clarkson. “They (my parents) were taking pictures of the TV and calling family,” Madison said. “I got so many texts (from friends), my phone was about to blow up.” The ICC was required to practice the national anthem in Lucas Oil the Friday before the big game. However, the day of the Super Bowl, Madison saw the stadium from a different perspective. “At first, I was like ‘No problem,’ but once we got on the stage I was like ‘Oh my gosh,’” she said. During the halftime show, Kevin Wissler, Mitch Hicks and Max Adams, ’12, were only a few of many men acting as gladiators escorting Madonna to the stage. These Cathedral seniors were three of the only five high school students participating in the show. They said practices for Madonna’s show were long and tortuous.“We were practicing for seven hours on five different nights,” Senior Kevin Wissler said. “It was hard.” Madonna’s halftime show

featured other stars such as LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, and Cee Lo Green; Kevin had an unexpected encounter with one of them. “At one of the practices, I was walking out, I tripped over LMFAO’s suitcase,” Kevin said. “I was like ‘Hey, mind if we take a picture?’” Kevin, Mitch, and Max as gladiators had to escort Madonna to the main stage as well as make sure all of their feet were synchronized while marching. When you think of gladiators you think of bulky outfits, but this time they were ‘extremely light,’ consisting of a chest plate, short skirt, sandals, a helmet, and baby oil.

Cathedral’s own Mathias Kiwanuka, class of 2001, came home to play with the victorious NY Giants in Super Bowl XLVI.

In the last seconds of the eight-minute set-up time for the show, everyone participating felt an overwhelming feeling of awe, Kevin said. Walking into the stadium with all of the flashing camera lights made the three Cathedral students feel like they had paparazzi following them. “I liked how she (Madonna) debuted her new song on the day of the Super Bowl,” Kevin said. “She related to all generations. It was a really cool experience.”

Cathedral grad named head coach at Morehead

Photo credit: Morehead State University

Sean Woods, class of ’88, who has spent time with five Division I men’s basketball programs and led Mississippi Valley State to the 2012 NCAA Tournament, has been named the 13th head coach in Morehead State University history. “I am very pleased to welcome Sean as the new head men’s basketball coach at Morehead State University,” said Dr. Wayne D. Andrews, MSU president. “I believe that Coach Woods’ experience, character and integrity will help us continue the momentum that our basketball program has achieved in recent years. I have no doubt that he will be an outstanding leader for our young men.” Woods led Mississippi Valley State to 50 overall wins and 44 Southwestern Athletic Conference victories the past four years. Woods was recognized as the 2011-12 SWAC Coach of the Year and earned the prestigious Ben Jobe Award, which honors the top minority coach in NCAA Division I men’s college basketball. Prior to accepting the head job in Itta Bena, MS, Woods spent time on the coaching staffs at TCU (2006-08), Texas A&M Corpus Christi (2005-06) and High Point (2003-05). Woods may be best known as one of the “Unforgettables” from Kentucky’s 1992 East Regional final team. He scored 21 points against Duke in one of the NCAA Tournament’s most memorable games, but Christian Laettner’s buzzer beater gave the Blue Devils a 104-103 overtime win over the Wildcats.

Cathedral students spend Spring Break building a better future for others

For the ninth consecutive year, Cathedral students have spent Spring Break helping Habitat for Humanity provide hope for those living on South Carolina’s St. John’s Island. Sixty-three Irish students plus six adult volunteers joined students from more than twenty high schools, colleges, and universities “to help families obtain simple, decent and affordable housing.” As part of Habitat’s national alternative break program, Collegiate Challenge, Cathedral students volunteered to work with the Charleston and Sea Island Habitat for Humanity.

“This is our fifteenth time hosting students during their spring break and we are appreciative of their efforts,” said Anne Shaffer Myers, Sea Island Habitat’s Volunteer Coordinator. “The work these students will do during their spring break will have a lasting impact in our community.” The students came to South Carolina from 20 different schools in 15 different states, plus one school from Canada and will work on various projects with the affiliates including new home construction and critical repair, weatherization, and Brush with Kindness projects.

Spring/Summer 2012

Dr. James Muller, ’61, Nobel Peace Prize recipient and Cathedral alumnus speaks to students James Muller, MD, Cathedral class of 1961, was the special guest speaker at the April 15, 2012, National Honor Society Induction Ceremony, and also addressed the student body at a special assembly the following day.

Dr. James Muller and Principal Dave Worland

Dr. Muller, a Boston cardiologist, has been described in a NYTimes. com article as having “the contemplative demeanor of a man who once considered the priesthood, drawn by the beauty and mysticism of the Mass.” Instead, as the article continues, he became a physician and later a founder of the social action group, the International

Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, which won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985. The Wall Street Journal featured Dr. Muller the same day he spoke at the Cathedral assembly. The company he founded, Infraredx Inc., has developed a tool that analyzes the telltale signs of the disease that causes heart attacks. “If the test proves effective in detecting and stopping heart attacks before they occur,” the article says, “it could be an important advance in the battle against the world’s leading killer.”

The 2012 Tradition set for August 20 The Tradition, Cathedral’s annual golf outing, will be held August 20, 2012, at the Hawthorns Golf and Country Club, Fishers, IN. The $400 entry fee for the 18-hole Florida Scramble includes green fees and cart, eight raffle tickets, one mulligan, putting contest entry, lunch/dinner/cocktails, on-course refreshments, favor, and prizes. Proceeds support the four cornerstones of Cathedral: affordability, diversity, faculty, and facilities in addition to the Cathedral Endowment. This year’s event will honor Man of the Year Joseph Dezelan, ’62, along with his wife Cathy (Corsaro) Dezelan and their three children, Marty, ’86, Jodi, ’90, and Tony, ’94.

Shamrock Scholars supporters recognized In April, supporters of the Shamrock Scholars program were recognized for their generosity in helping deserving students enjoy the benefits of a Cathedral High School education. A luncheon in their honor, held in the Atrium at the school, brought together sponsors and their individual students. The speaker for the event was Shamrock Scholar donor, Patrick Rowe, class of ’98, who attended along with his mother, Vicki Rowe, also a Shamrock Scholar supporter.

Past-parent Vicki Roe, Delaney Jansen, ’14, and Patrick Rowe, ’98.

The program, started by Director of Major Gifts Mike Feeney, matches students with donors who commit to providing tuition support, freshman through senior years. Shamrock Scholars raises $550,000 annually in direct tuition assistance as well as fosters a personal, emotional investment in the success of Cathedral students.

Russell (Jock) and Penny Fortune, long-time local education philanthropists, will be providing full tuition for the following Shamrock Scholars for the 2012-2013 school year through their Fortune Scholars program. Pictured left to right: Katie Kluger, Rob Kluger, Michael Kluger ’16, Courtney Bostrom ’15, Angela Bostrom, Mike Feeney, Cathedral’s Director of Major Gifts, Ben Sasin ’14, Anna Sasin, Simon Sasin, Michelle Rhodes, Director of the Cathedral Fund.

Hugh, ’44, and Betty Sullivan, pictured here with students Max Spears, ’12, and Peter Herron, ’12, together have assisted three Cathedral students through the Shamrock Scholars program each year for the past 15 years.

NEW 50% TAX CREDIT MAKES BEING A SHAMROCK SCHOLAR SUPPORTER EASIER THAN EVER New tax rules instituted in 2011 mean your donation goes even farther in helping deserving students benefit from a Cathedral education. Donations made to our Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) are eligible for a 50% state tax credit, up to $2.5 million a year. Plus, that same donation still qualifies for federal deductions. That means that donations toward Cathedral tuition through our SGO, either by an individual or a corporation, might, return up to 75% or more of the amount in the form of tax credits and deductions. For more information on taking advantage of the new tax credit and enjoying the satisfaction of supporting Cathedral’s Shamrock Scholars program, contact Mike Feeney, Director of Major Gifts, at 317.968.7348 or at mfeeney@gocathedral.com.

Saying “goodbye” to a Pioneer in Broadcasting Charles “Chuck” Workman,79, a veteran of Indianapolis broadcasting who was best-known as a courtly, smoothvoiced spokesman for jazz, passed away March 25, 2012, at his home. He was born December 1, 1932, in Terre Haute, Indiana, to the late Clyde and Izetta Workman. His broadcast career began as a Cathedral High School student in 1947, doing a show for the old WIRE-AM in Indianapolis. After Air Force service during the Korean War, when he learned more about broadcasting, he returned to Indianapolis in 1956. He worked for the Veterans Administration, from which he retired in 1992,

all the while gaining a growing reputation in local radio and TV. He got in on the ground floor of radio station WTLC-FM in 1967, then joined WATI-AM as an engineer with a sports show on the side. He moved into TV with Channel 4 in 1969, becoming sports director in 1974—the first black man in the state to hold such a position. Workman spent 19 years with WTPI-FM, broadcasting jazz every Sunday morning, until a format change in 2005. Several months later, he was hired by WICR-FM, where his “Saturday Evening Jazz Show” continued until his death. He had been with WIAN-FM (predecessor to WFYI-FM) from 1970 to 1990 as a jazz radio host.

The Indiana Pioneer Broadcasters inducted him into its Richard M. Fairbanks Hall of Fame last fall. He was also a member of the Indianapolis Jazz Hall of Fame. Workman helped organize the long-running “Animals and All That Jazz” series at the Indianapolis Zoo about 25 years ago, and worked with David Baker of Indiana University to put together an Indiana Avenue all-star reunion concert to kick off the first Indy Jazz Fest in 1999. He leaves to cherish his memories a loving daughter; Courtney Workman Perry (Sean); sister, Eileen W. Young; nephew, Mark P. Young and a host of other relatives and friends.
