The Magic of the Arts
he Board of Regents Campaign for the Arts continues with more than $200,000 in gifts and pledges received. The $300,000 initiative is tailored to add to the strengths of each of the School’s six programs in the Arts (Visual Art, Instrumental Music, Vocal Music, Dance, Theatre, Film and Video Production). More than 43% of La Salle students benefit from La Salle’s award-winning Arts programs at a time when many other secondary schools are reducing or eliminating these programs. The campaign will endow a $100,000 scholarship fund in the Arts, as well as fund $200,000 in refurbishments to the Linda M. Grinstead Theatre, the Mareina Dance Studio, and Band Room with equipment, acoustic shells and instrument
purchases. Sound, lighting and video upgrades for the theatre and LTV’s broadcast studio are also scheduled. The campaign runs through June 30, 2013, and we hope you will be part of the success and the magic. Gifts may be made through the La Salle website, where you will find the Regents Campaign for the Arts on the left side of the homepage; or you can go directly to the giving page at www.lasallehs.org.

FROM THE PRESIDENT
La Salle I
am back in my office after having spent a delightful hour in the Duffy Lewis Gymnasium enjoying a magnificent Student Christmas Assembly put on by the Visual and Performing Arts Department. There was something for everyone…the 48 voice Choir sang, the elite Jazz Ensemble performed, as did the Advanced Band, the newly formed String Ensemble wowed the students with their technique, the Dance program was showcased, including two students who compete in Irish Step Dancing. There were soloists and a video (produced by the students in the Film and Digital Media Program) entitled The Art Project that featured interviews of student members of the Visual and Performing Arts Department talking about the impact Art (in all of its manifestations) had on their individual development. As I returned to my office, I was struck by two different impressions; the first focused on the obvious - the amazing depth and breadth of student artistic talent which is drawn to La Salle’s VPA program - and, the less obvious but no less important, phenomenal reaction of their student colleagues who cheered and, at one point, initiated a standing ovation, in appreciation of the accomplishments of the student artists performing on the gym floor. As I watched the performance, I realized how much the community of La Salle takes for granted the unique elements - one of which is our four-year Arts Program - that distinguish us from other private high schools in the greater Pasadena area. As an Academic Advisor to freshmen, I regularly work with students who need to schedule certain courses during the School’s Summer Academic Institute in order to ensure that they will be able to pursue their passion in the Arts each semester for the next four years. I’ve been in the school business for over 30 years and I don’t know of another school (certainly none that I’ve worked in) where teenagers willingly take a summer school class in order to clear a space in their schedule so that they could concentrate on one particular academic discipline (this also happens in the Mathematics Department for students who want to take the two-semester Advanced Placement Calculus program in their Senior year). And yet, we have over 200 students doing exactly that. As I reflected on these taken-for-granted elements of the La Salle Difference, it occurred to me that I’m probably not the only Lancer who assumes that the day-to-day experience of the teenagers entrusted to our care is normative for all high school students. Sadly, in fact, for most California teenagers, this is not the case. There is irony in our “take-it-for-granted” attitude to this unique approach to Arts Education at La Salle. While more than one research study highlights the value of exposure to the Arts for all educational disciplines; the Arts are among the first programs to fall prey to the budget axe in the public sector. Budget cuts and the Great Recession have reduced these opportunities for most high school students in the Golden State. Like Counseling, Arts Education is often the first to feel the impact of the deficit-cutting axe when there are too few dollars to support all of the worthwhile educational programs that ought to be available to every student in California.
In his forward to the 2011 report of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities: Re-Investing in Arts Education: Winning America’s Future Through Creative Schools, US Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan made this observation: The opportunity to learn about the arts and to perform as artists is an essential part of a well-rounded curriculum and complete education. The study of drama, dance, music, and the visual arts helps students explore realities, relationships, and ideas that cannot be conveyed simply in words or numbers. The ability to perform and create in the fine arts engenders innovative problem-solving skills that students can apply to other academic disciplines and provides experiences working as a team. This is not a Screed against the tortured financial politics of the Golden State. What I want to share in this reflection is the deep gratitude I have for the generous donors - alumni, current parents, grandparents and parents of alumni - who recognize that the La Salle Difference is not only worthy of their philanthropic support but dependent upon their generosity - if we are to successfully implement our Mission to “nurture, inspire, challenge and motivate” the students entrusted to our care. This Annual Report highlights the many ways loyal and generous supporters of the La Salle Mission ensure that the students entrusted to our care receive the broadest possible educational program - especially as you will see in this issue - in terms of their exposure to the fine and performing arts. Secretary Duncan uses the term “the magic of the Arts” to describe the impact these disciplines can - and must - have on elementary and secondary students. I am especially grateful for the essential role the “magic of the arts” plays here at La Salle.
Dr. Richard Gray President

FROM THE PRINCIPAL
n the last issue of Lancer Magazine I wrote about being called back to this school community as its new Principal. My “short” absence of 33 years allowed a great deal of personal growth and maturing to occur for me and I’m a better Brother, educator and person because of it. Since my official re-emergence on July 1, I have often been asked the question, “How is La Salle different today from when you left it in 1979?” My answer in July was a just few sentences as I was reacquainting myself with La Salle. And now, after six months of careful study and conversation, I am able to expound at length on the transformation of this school community and all that it has to offer the young men and women who walk (or run!) our hallways each school day. In 1979, the physical facilities of La Salle for an all boy’s school were adequate. We had a total of five window air conditioners for offices on campus. The hallways were white and simple. The cafeteria walls bled water from the E. Sierra Madre side and on warm days, we “baked” from the asphalt on the yard side. Today, we have central air conditioning for all of the classrooms and offices. Each classroom is technology equipped and ready for the needs of the 21st century. Our science facilities are more spacious and provide better laboratory equipment. We have a fully staffed dining hall and a football/soccer field that is playable in any weather condition. In 1979, our academic program was solid. We did the basics and most of our graduates went to college. In 2012, our curricular offerings are second to none! Both regular and Honors classes prepare our students well in a college preparatory curriculum. We offer 14 Advanced Placement college classes; our Visual and Performing Arts department offers a full four year curriculum; over the last five years, 99% of our graduates move on directly to colleges or universities of their choice. In 1979, we had an all-male student body with an enrollment of 420. Today we boast of our enrollment at 700. More importantly, the young women who now walk our halls make this school setting a healthier and more realistic environment. They allow for classroom discussions to be more authentic and real-world like. They truly enhance and provide a wonderful balance to the former all boys experience. On a personal level, having spent many years in both settings, it was only in the co-ed schools where I was the recipient of truly delectable delights on my birthday or at Christmas time. Yes, they sensed my enjoyment for the sweets. While many of the externals have taken on a different “look”, the most important things have not. We still deliver, as in 1979, a Catholic education in the tradition of Saint John Baptist de La Salle which began in 1680 and is now over 330 years strong. Our education continues to be meaningful, viable, and practical for the students in this school. Parents today, as in 1979, are willing to sacrifice to have their son/daughter attend this school. Private education is not inexpensive! I continue to be in admiration of mothers and fathers who freely choose to forego many of the niceties in order that their offspring are afforded an education that is driven by gospel values. The educators on this campus continue to be dedicated to those students placed in our care. The teaching faculty of 66 continues to be committed to the Mission and belief that each and every young person can be transformed by a meaningful education that this school offers. Our focus is on students and what is best for them. For me to return to this school community, I have been reenergized by the joy and smiles I see each day from the students on this campus. The young Lancers are enjoying their high school years and the opportunities we are able to provide them to be involved with others through service. This fall 40 students were off campus involved in a tutoring program that serves some of Los Angeles’ needy elementary schools. We provided 87 military families at Fort Irwin complete Thanksgiving dinners in addition to 140 Christmas trees. In our Christmas Adopt–a–Family program, we provided gifts and toys to over 150 young boys and girls. Our students were asked and our families responded with gracious and giving hearts. Our school environment is one in which young and the not so old are smiling and enjoying what they are doing. It continues to be a community of learners who enjoy one another. What makes La Salle High School so special are the people. Those who established the school in 1956−the real pioneers of Lancer education: Br. Celestine, Br. Mel, Br. Wilfred, Br. Cormac… and Duffy Lewis. Those that followed them…teachers and students and athletes and stage actors and singers and artists and our mighty alumni. As this School���s Principal−I know that I am blessed to lead an institution that wants to be better than it is. La Salle High School has never been satisfied by the status quo and is not satisfied because of its successes. The School community of today is talented, gifted, smart and hard working. How lucky can I be to return and help move La Salle forward.

Frank Ferrante ’81
IS STILL IN THE CIRCUS TENT By Vicky Paluch
As a student at La Salle in 1980, Frank Ferrante portrayed the young Groucho Marx in “Minnie’s Boys,” a show about the vaudeville days of the five singing Marx boys and how they evolved into the anarchistic comedy legends - the Marx Brothers. He has been playing Groucho ever since. “Brother Malachy Biller picked “Minnie’s Boys,” knowing that I loved Groucho,” recalled Ferrante, who has been called the “greatest living interpreter of Groucho Marx’s material.” “Six years later, I was doing “Groucho: A Life in Revue” in New York.” “Groucho: A Life in Revue,” launched his stage career, taking the then 23-year-old Ferrante off-Broadway - and then to London - portraying Groucho from age 15 to 85. For his work in the off-Broadway production, Ferrante won New York’s Theatre World Award in 1987 and was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award. For the London run, Ferrante was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award for comedy performance that same year. Subsequently, Ferrante starred in, produced and directed a stage production of “Groucho: A Life in Revue” for PBS television, which aired in 2001. Today, Ferrante continues to channel the iconic comedian in his oneman show, “An Evening with Groucho.” He has been touring in the one-manshow for more than a decade. The theater arts program at La Salle “changed my life and prepared me to work in the field that I love,” said Ferrante, who was raised in Sierra Madre, graduated from La Salle in 1981, and still resides in the San Gabriel Valley. His brother Tony graduated from La Salle in ’83 and youngest brother John teaches and is an administrator at Cathedral High School,
another Christian Brothers school. “The theater arts program allowed Frank to blossom,” recalled Brother Christopher Brady, who as a young teacher served as the technical director for La Salle’s spring musicals. “He had a true knack for theater and entertaining.” Brother Chris said that he saw Frank’s talent during the school’s production of Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes,” in 1979, when as a sophomore Ferrante played the comic role, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, whose famous duet is “Let’s Misbehave.” “Those were my first huge laughs,” Ferrante mused. All the spring musicals, Brother Chris noted, were performed in a big circus tent on the school’s parking lot. “I’m still performing in circus tents,” said Ferrante, who plays the comic lead in “Hail Caesar!” in Teatro ZinZanni’s cirque show in San Francisco and Seattle. He has been running off to the cirque each summer for the past 12 years. This fall, he took his wisecracking Latin lover character, ’Caesar,’ to Europe, where his show was presented by Palazzo, a similar cirque in Amsterdam. He performed there for four months. The seeds for the two major facets of his successful career – comedy and music – were sewn at La Salle High School. The musicals were directed by the late Brother Donald Mansir, FSC, who Ferrante credits for inspiring him to pursue a life in the theater. “Brother Donald treated us like true pros. We would workshop the musical for four months. He taught us dance, improvisation, and vocal exercises. Then, we diligently rehearsed the songs, dances and comedy,” Ferrante recalled fondly of his late mentor. “He was serious and stern, and grand in a warm, theatrical way. A tremendous scholar, he was passionate about the theater and theater people. And when he laughed at something you did, you knew you had done something right, something supreme.” Brother Donald, who died last year, was an expert in Middle Eastern affairs who taught at FALL / WINTER 2013
St. Mary’s College in Moraga, California. Ferrante remained dear friends with Brother Donald, visiting him when his work with Teatro ZinZanni took him to the Bay Area. “He literally saw my shows dozens of times. He was my biggest fan. He was the first person to really see me, what I could do. He celebrated life with his big personality,” Ferrante said. Under Brother Donald’s and Brother Malachy’s direction at La Salle, Ferrante played Harold Hill in “The Music Man,” Nathan Detroit in “Guys and Dolls,” John Adams in “1776” and Sir Evelyn Oakleigh in “Anything Goes.” As a drama student at USC, Ferrante was discovered in 1985 by Arthur Marx, the son of Groucho who co-wrote “Minnie’s Boys” and “Groucho: A Life in Revue” with Robert Fisher. Arthur Marx cast Ferrante to play the title role in “Groucho: A Life in Revue,”
starred as a talking mime in Rob Corddry’s Emmy Award-winning TV comedy “Childrens Hospital” on Adult Swim and was heard on Cartoon Network’s animated “Garfield.” He estimates he has taken “An Evening with Groucho” to more than 400 cities. He sees no end in sight for the one-man show. “That’s because there’s no such thing as an old joke if you never heard it before,” he said. “Young people are discovering Groucho Marx all the time.” More than just parroting the jokes, Ferrante ad-libs his way throughout the performance in Groucho style, engaging audience members in the fun. “I love Groucho’s irreverence. I was a shy kid. He’s fearless in that persona and it’s empowering,” said Ferrante. He has been in love with Groucho’s work since he was a boy watching Marx Brothers movies and his comedy-quiz show “You Bet Your Life” on television. “I always felt he was speaking to me,” recalled Ferrante, who did his first Groucho impression as an eighth grade student at St. Rita’s School in Sierra Madre. “I want to introduce his brash style to younger audiences. Groucho is
Frank Ferrante,with actors, Sean Penn and Robin Williams
hiring him as soon as Ferrante graduated college in 1985 to try out the play in Kansas City. By 1986, Ferrante was starring in a hit show off-Broadway and in London the next year. He brought the show to the Pasadena Playhouse in 1989. Ferrante remained close to Arthur Marx, who died last year at age 89, and to Groucho’s daughter, Miriam Marx Allen, who recently attended Ferrante’s one man show in Long Beach. Ferrante’s many regional theater roles include Max Prince in Neil Simon’s “Laughter on the 23rd Floor” at Philadelphia’s Walnut Street Theatre, which Ferrante also directed. He played George S. Kaufman in the one-man show “By George,” which Ferrante wrote about the famed playwright and director who collaborated on many of the Marx Brothers films. An accomplished director himself, Ferrante directed and developed the 1995 world premiere of Pulitzer Prize finalist, “Old Wicked Songs” at the Walnut Street Theatre which has been his creative home for 20 years. This past summer, Ferrante guest26
the best physical and verbal comedian we have.” “I’ve been so fortunate that I get to hear laughter Frank Ferrante with Sid Caesar every night,” said Ferrante. “I have been validated in my work as actor, director, comedian, and improv artist. There have been many highs and lows. One high was seeing Robin Williams wipe away tears while laughing at my interactive improv set. Another - being told by Sean Penn that I’m a good actor. The greatest satisfaction is knowing that it’s been almost 30 years and I am still attempting to get better. It never ends.” Ferrante’s favorite comedians – Groucho, Jackie Gleason, Sid Caesar, W.C. Fields and Milton Berle – have the rare ability to channel angst and rage into laughter. “Humor and music are great antidotes,” Ferrante said. “The older I get, the more I appreciate it.”

By Kristen Schultz ’98, Director of Alumni Relations
JENNY BELAK ’04 JENNIFER BELAK, Class of 2004, was one of the most talented softball players La Salle has ever had. She was on Varsity all four years of her high school career as leadoff batter, first basemen and occasionally, pitcher. During her senior year, she hit .600 and broke the CIF-SS record for hits in a season with 69 - a record that still stands today. Jenny helped lead her team to the Sunshine League and State Championships in both 2003 and 2004. Jenny was a three-time All-California Interscholastic Division V first team, a three-time West San Gabriel Valley first team honoree by the Pasadena Star News, a four-time Sunshine League first team member, league MVP in 2004, and the Star News Player of the Year for 2004. Jenny finished her softball career at La Salle by being named to the Hall of Fame for Softball and was also named the Female Athlete of the Year. Jenny accepted a Division I athletic scholarship to the University of Maryland, where she was a four-year starter for the Terrapins, competing in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

UNDEFEATED By Russell Gordon with John Blackstock ’67
his fall, the Lancers completed an amazing, undefeated season to qualify for the CIF playoffs. The road to the league championship began last winter when new head football coach, Coach Russell Gordon, along with his new coaching staff, addressed the students involved in the Lancer Football program. The first things Gordon said was “this will no longer be recreational football. We are going to implement our strength and conditioning program along with our football system. We will build upon what Coach Peterson has built and you will win.” From that day forward, it was apparent to all that it was time to go to work, on and off the field. “Our minimum goal, for the first season, was to go 5-5 and beat Maranatha,” recounted Gordon. But well into spring workouts
Coach Gordon and his staff realized that this could be a special season. “These kids work extremely hard in the weight room and on the field. Once the expectations were set, we did everything as a staff to make sure that we super exceeded them.” The staff made sure that the student athletes lived our moto; Unity, Hustle, Pride. “Remember that offense sells tickets, and defense wins championships!” Gordon remarked. In the spring, a solid foundation was laid and it showed this fall. The team compiled an impressive preseason and league record of 10-0. They were the Del Rey League Champions and advanced to the Southern Section playoffs before losing a very close game to Centennial Compton 12 to 10 in their final game.
GAME-BY-GAME SYNOPSIS WEEK 0: La Salle beat Temple City 27-0 with 345 yards of total offense and four offensive touchdowns. The Lancers had 215 yards rushing and 130 yards passing. Defensively, we owned the line of scrimmage. WEEK 1: La Salle outscored Glendale High School 45-16. La Salle had 347 yards of offense and six offensive TDs with 275 yards rushing and 77 yards passing. The defense was very stingy. WEEK 2: We beat a tough Village Christian team 50-6. The Lancers broke open a close game in 32
the second half. We had 604 yards of offense and six offensive TDs. We had 433 yards rushing and 172 yards passing. The defense was very strong. WEEK 3: We won 63-7 against our rival Maranatha. We had a total of 397 yards of offense and nine offensive TDs. The Lancers had 230 yards rushing and 167 yards passing. Once again, our defense played stingy and we capitalized on the Minutemen’s errors. At this point, the coaches noticed that the players had bought in to our program 100% and it would be hard for anyone to defeat us.
WEEK 4: The Lancers won 47-30 against Westchester High. We had 446 yards of offense and six offensive TDs. We had 247 yards rushing and 199 yards passing. Our defense faced its first true challenge against a FAST Westchester team, but held its ground when they needed. WEEK 5: We had a bye, but more importantly we went to Hillsides Orphanage as a team. We brought toys for the underprivileged kids and played capture the flag with them. We invited the children to our next game. They came and sat on our sidelines with grins from ear to ear. WEEK 6: La Salle won 65-7 against Verbum Dei. We had 213 yards rushing and 187 yards passing for a total of 400 yards of offense and a total of 10 offensive TDs. Our defense was very tough. WEEK 7: We defeated Mary Star 47-6. We rushed for 401 yards and passed for 176 yards for a total of 577 yards of offense with a total of seven offensive TDs. Again our defense was extremely stingy. WEEK 8: La Salle beat perennial league power, Bishop Montgomery 29-10. We rushed for 154 yards and passed for 126 yards for a total of 280 yards of offense with two offensive TDs. Our defense bent, but did not break. WEEK 9: We defeated Cantwell Sacred Heart 61-30 and had 336 yards rushing and 163 yards passing for a total of 499 yards of offense and nine offensive TDs. Cantwell scored some late points against some very young La Salle defensive players who were filling in for injured starters. WEEK 10: During our Homecoming celebrations we defeated Bosco Tech 73-3 for a perfect 10-0 regular season record and our first Del Rey league football title since becoming part of the Del Rey League. Once again, our defense played fantastic. WEEK 11: In the first round of the CIF playoffs, we lost to a speedy Compton Centennial 12-10. We rushed for only 69 yards and passed for 119 scoring 0 offensive TDs. Defensively, we held a very fast team to 12 total points. Offensively we struggled and had a season low of 188 yards of total offense. This loss cannot overshadow what this team accomplished in the 2012 season. The Lancers came from being 1-19 to 10-1 with the majority of the same players. “We can say that our goal was achieved and more,” quipped coach Gordon. The Lancer student athletes worked incredibly hard from the spring through the fall and their efforts equaled their results. Final stats for the season showed 517 points for and 127 points against (the fewest in entire CIF Division). The Lancers were not only successful on the field, but in the classroom as well. When Coach Gordon arrived, there were 15 student athletes in academic trouble so he implemented a daily study hall, and no Lancer was ever placed on the academic ineligibility list. Coach Gordon said with pride at the end of the season, “We leave the 2012 season knowing the Lancers were successful on and off the field and learned several lifelong lessons. These are lessons that they can implement into their daily life for the rest of their lives.”
FALL / WINTER 2013
IS THE ABC7 NFL HIGH SCHOOL COACH OF THE WEEK By John Hartung, ABC7 Eyewitness News
ome might call what happened on the La Salle Lancers’ field in the past three months a football miracle. The Lancers hoped to win at least five games this season. But they came out and won their opening game. They won the next week, too, and the next. La Salle did not stop at five wins, or six, or seven. They ran the table in the regular season to go a perfect 10-0. “I never would’ve seen us going 10-0, but Coach (Russell) Gordon is one of those coaches who believed in us,” said Lancers wide receiver Jalen Gray. Gordon said morale was a little low, but he saw a bright future for La Salle. “The culture needed to be changed, as far as this wasn’t going to be recreational anymore,” he said. Some people might have thought the first-year head coach was crazy. He left Campbell Hall for La Salle, which was 1-19 the past two years. “I came to their homecoming game last year,” Gordon said. “They were 0-8. I saw the community support and it was awesome. The way they embraced this team, it was definitely something I wanted to be a part of.” His coaching style paid off quickly on the scoreboard. The Lancers were not only undefeated, they won by an average of almost 40 points per game. “Effort equals results,” Gordon said. After going 10-0, La Salle could not quite take it all the way. They lost their first game in the CIF playoffs by two points. “We made mistakes that night that were out of character,” Gordon said. “That’s what happens. These games are about competition and so is life. They learned another life lesson out of it.” So now the off-season workouts begin in the place the turnaround all started: the La Salle weight room.

TRACK & FIELD
his fall, La Salle completed a $650,000 upgrading of Kohorst Field’s football and soccer playing surface as well as the track. The project features the new Lancer mascot at mid-field and a new blue all weather track. The field has shaded numbers, and blue colored end zones as well. “This project has been an image in my mind for over a year and it sure is nice to see it come to fruition” said Athletic Director, Anthony Harris. Construction began in mid June and the football field was completed in early July. The track was finished and lined during the three week period of away and bye games during the football season. 34
DANIEL DE LA TORRE STATE CHAMPION By Keith Lair, Reprinted from the San Gabriel Valley News
Senior Daniel De La Torre is La Salle’s first State Champion. After winning the CIF SS Division IV Cross Country crown for the second year in a row, he set off to the State Meet with only one thing in mind - the championship. It did not look promising. La Salle High School’s Daniel De La Torre trailed reigning CIF State cross country champion John Lawson of Sir Francis Drake by 15 seconds with a mile to go. But 50 yards before the finish of the 5,000-meter race at Fresno’s Woodward Park, De La Torre pulled off the pass and won the state title. De La Torre, who was third last year, said he was going to give it his all to catch Lawson. “Win state or nothing,” the senior said. “It has been something I have been working up to. If I didn’t win I would have just thrown the medal in the corner of my room.” He became La Salle’s first state champion in any sport when he won in 15:30 with Lawson four seconds behind him. “That was a heck of a last mile,” Lancers coach Fred Riley said.
“I had so much to lose,” De La Torre said. “I’m astonished and so happy. I worked on my lack and it paid off.” The result surprised Riley, who did not know Lawson had been caught until the final stretch. The runners go out of view over most of the final mile. “I did not see until there were 40 yards to go and what I saw I actually could not believe,” he said. “It is his day, his turn, his time.” Lawson and De La Torre went out together at the pace De La Torre prefers, fast and furious, and Lawson went with him. But Lawson pulled ahead on a hill. “I told myself I have to keep him in my sight,” De La Torre said. “It was nothing we did,” Riley said. “This guy has incredible character. He was determined to not let Lawson beat him again.” FALL / WINTER 2013
Katrina Palffy scores for the Lancers.
GIRLS VOLLEYBALL SWEEPS CIF CHAMPIONSHIP By John Blackstock ’67
ollowing an amazing season of exciting stand-up-and-cheer volleyball, where the Lancers were undefeated in league play and suffered only two losses, the team set off for the CIF playoffs. “You can’t put anything past our team,” libero Caroline Knop said. “You think we’re going to lose? We won’t. We can promise you we are not. Then enlisting shades of legendary coach Duffy Lewis, Knop continued “We will take on any team, at any time, any where.” During the CIF-Southern Section Division 1A championship match at Santiago Canyon College, El Dorado High School tried to break the Lancers streak. But the Golden Hawks (20-14) were swept 25-16, 25-20, 29-27, and La Salle won its first CIF-SS volleyball title in three tries. 36
In the final game, the No. 2 seeded Lancers (34-3) were down 24-21, when La Salle’s coach, Tiare Tuitama called timeout and said to the girls, “We’ve been here before; done this before. You know you can get this done.” The fact that they know they can get it done goes a long way here, she said. (The Lancers reached last year’s CIF-SS Division 2AA final, where they lost to St. Lucy’s). After the time out, Katrina Palffy leads off with a kill, Jessica Kennedy has back-to-back kills to tie it at 24-24. The Lancers and Golden Hawks matched points and errors until a second match point where setter Alyssa Tavera’s cleaver dump shot ties it again at 27-27. Haley DeSales’ spike went off a blocker for a score breaking the tie, and then DeSales powers a crossing shot for the victory.
All left to right, back row, Sierra Bononi, Haley DeSales, Coach Andrew Sandoval, Head Coach Tiare Tuitama, Coach Trevor Lanzarotta, Olivia Bin, Renaissance Forster. Middle row, Reilly Spriestersbach, Jaya Banks, Jessica Kennedy, Cheri Raymundo, Katrina Palffy. Bottom row, Maddie Pefferie, Katie Smither, Caroline Knop, Katherine Leek, Alyssa Tavera.
“Normally we don’t get second chances like this,” DeSales said. “We got that chance. We were going to win this one. We have no regrets.” The Hawks knocked off St. Lucy’s in the quarterfinals and had a lot of size, creating tough shot opportunities for the Lancers. Palffy and Riley Spriestersbach each had 10 kills and DeSales and Kennedy had nine each. The Hawks’ front line of 6 footers made it tough for the Lancers. “I definitely made some silly errors, but the rest of the team really stepped up.” DeSales said. Middle blocker Olivia Bin, who transferred from Immaculate Heart, who played sparingly until recently because of injuries, took the step up. “She is a natural outside hitter, but it was her eight kills and block that seemed to change the tone early when the Hawks were blocking everything in sight,’ said Tuitama. The Lancers displayed a balanced attack with four players recording at least nine kills in the match. Riley Spriesterbach, who played her best postseason match at the most opportune time.
“Riley has had a good playoff run, but she was great in the finals,” Tuitama said. “It’s one of the best games I’ve seen her play.” Setter Alyssa Tavera also stepped up for the Lancers with 37 assists to go with timely digs that helped La Salle edge the Golden Hawks in the highly intense third game. “The players that experienced last year’s loss are the ones that made a big impact,” Tuitama said. “The fact that the girls know what it feels like to lose just eliminates any nerves from last year. They were just having fun.” Winning a CIF championship extended La Salle’s season as they clinched a CIF State tournament berth. “It’s a tough one,” Tuitama said prior to the opening state match. “We have a four-hour drive and harder play. It’s interesting to see the talent and play from different areas in the state. I like that we’re going to see teams we’ve never seen before. Both sides have to adapt to what’s going on.” However, the girls’ volleyball season came to an end during the first round of the CIF State Division I playoffs as La Salle fell to fourth-ranked Clovis West, 19-25,25-23, 25-15, 18-25, 15-11. The defeat caps the season for fifth-ranked La Salle, which won La Salle’s first-ever CIF Southern Section Division I-A championship. Sophomore Haley DeSales paced La Salle with 15 kills and 15 digs, while libero Knop tallied 40 digs, setter Tavera totaled 45 assists, Kennedy added 19 kills and three blocks, Cheri Raymundo contributed 10 digs and Spriesterbach finished with 12 kills and two blocks. “We just didn’t have the same energy as we had in the CIF finals, but I’m still proud of our girls,” Tuitams said. “It’s bittersweet. We didn’t go as far in state as last year or as far as I would have liked, but we won a ring this year, which we didn’t do last year. We did something this year that the school has never done, so that’s great.”
Libero, Caroline Knop digs a spike.

n a season rich with triumph, it was inevitable that the La Salle High girls’ volleyball team would reap the benefits of its CIF accomplishments. And in the aftermath of claiming a CIF Southern Section Division I-A championship — the first in program history — the Lancers found themselves once more atop the division, as sophomore standout Haley DeSales was named the All-CIF Division I-A Player of the Year, as released officially on Monday afternoon, while La Salle Coach Tiare Tuitama was named the division’s coach of the year.
DeSales, a sophomore outside hitter, was a catalyst in leading the Lancers, who moved up from Division II-AA the season prior when they also advanced to the finals, to their first championship, as they swept through El Dorado, 25-16, 25-20, 29-27. “It’s a huge honor for me,” DeSales said. “There are so many awesome players in our division. It was one of my goals to get it during my career. It’s just an amazing honor and I got a lot of help from my teammates. Every year, you hope to improve in one skill or another. I want to help make La Salle into a big name for girls’ volleyball.”
“It’s a huge honor for me. There are so many awesome players in our division. It was one of my goals to get it during my career. It’s just an amazing honor and I got a lot of help from my teammates.”
In addition, junior libero Caroline Knop was named to the All-CIF first team in the division. After winning the Del Rey League title, Tuitama navigated the Lancers to the title and a 34-3 record on the season. “It’s something that’s very rewarding,” Tuitama said of being named the division’s coach of the year. “I’m shocked to have gotten it because there are a lot of great coaches out there. It does feel good, and it’s something you hope for.” 38
DeSales finished with 389 kills, 220 digs, 55 aces and 38 blocks. “It’s well-deserved because she was our go-to hitter and was our closer,” Tuitama said of DeSales being named the player of the year. “She developed as an outside hitter at a very fast pace. She knows where to put the ball. I’m very proud of her being named AllCIF.” Knop, who’s bound for the University of Michigan, averaged 4.9 digs per game and had 29 total aces. “She’s the one who sets the standards for our team,” Tuitama said of Knop. “Her volleyball IQ is the highest I’ve seen it from a player at any level. She will get better and be one of our leaders again next year.”

ALUMNI SERVICE AWARD Chanel Buccola and Blake Shaw
CHANEL BUCCOLA ’07 and BLAKE SHAW ’07 were presented with the Young Alumni Service Award at the Homecoming Liturgy on November 1st for their embodiment of the Lasallian Mission of “Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve.” Both Chanel & Blake participated in City Year. City Year is a national non-profit organization that engages college graduates into low income communities in Los Angeles as a way to combat the drop out crisis. One in four students in the Los Angeles Unified School District will not receive their high school diploma. City Year encourages young adults to commit to one year of service as a way to improve this statistic. Chanel graduated from USC in 2011 and knew that she would never again have the opportunity to provide extensive service to her community so she decided to devote one year of her life to City Year. Chanel taught all subjects in a 6th grade classroom in Koreatown with a partner educator. She was also appointed the After School Coordinator where she designed and implemented lesson plans regarding social justice issues on a daily basis. In addition, she organized after school events for parents and the community as a whole, which promoted a sense of unity within the community and offered a safe place for the neighborhood. Her work was primarily in the classroom but not limited to it. Chanel completed 1,700 hours of service in ten months, dedicating time at the Los Angeles Food Bank and assisting with school beautification at sites throughout Los Angeles. Chanel is positive that her perspective on community service was framed through her years at La Salle. “The adage of City
Year is ’Give A Year, Change The World’. Each time I heard this, I recalled the aphorism of La Salle, “Enter to Learn, Leave To Serve”. Blake graduated from Harvey Mudd College in 2011 and learned about City Year from a friend. Once he realized that this would be a great way to share his love of learning and awaken that same feeling in students, he was sold. Blake worked in a 9th grade math classroom in Koreatown to deliver specialized intervention tutoring to students at risk of dropping out. He also helped lead after-school tutoring and enrichment sessions to keep the kids motivated about learning. In addition to typical corps member duties, City Year’s mission is to impact the whole school environment so Blake also helped organize school-wide events such as a teacher appreciation breakfast, an open mic night, and even a circus carnival. 50+ hour work weeks were the norm and though it was certainly challenging, Blake is thoroughly grateful for the opportunity to gain so much through service. Blake believes that his experience at La Salle had a hand in his decision to volunteer with City Year. “Many of my teachers at La Salle fostered that same love of learning that I felt so empowered to share with at-risk students. Of my service experiences at La Salle, I remember most poignantly was the chance to work with lively youngsters in a small school in Tijuana on Venaver. Many of the students’ parents worked as scavengers at a nearby dump and they were completely surrounded by poverty but they saw past that. They loved life and they loved learning. On the tough days at City Year, they reminded me of the essential goodness and love of learning in every student and every person.” FALL / WINTER 2013
Excerpts from the Pasadena Sun with additional reporting by John Blackstock ’67
enior Jennifer Robi’s life has been touched by tragedy but now is graced with triumph and a trophy. Robi was recognized for her community contributions at the Police Chief’s Breakfast, where she was awarded the Bernard K. Melekian Award. Helping others is nothing new for Robi as she comes from a law enforcement family. Her mother is a retired LAPD Detective and her father is currently a bomb squad technician at LAPD who risks his life everyday protecting the community. Her brother, too, is a Los Angeles Police Officer (Chris Carnahan ’00).
One of her most memorable speeches was given when she was in eighth grade. With her mother, Robi gave a presentation before a crowd of 850 students and faculty members about drunk driving at La Salle High School. One year later, Jennifer had the opportunity to speak at La Salle again this time as a student. At La Salle’s Every 15 Minutes program, she gave a testimony of the motor vehicle collision she and her mother were involved. Robi has spoken at more than 50 Every 15 Minutes programs through her volunteer work with MADD. However, she says nothing can
IS RECIPIENT OF
POLICE CHIEF’S AWARD “I am honored to be here today and accept this award. Coming from a law enforcement family makes this award even more meaningful. I want to thank the Pasadena Police Foundation for all the work they do in helping our youth. I would also like to thank my College Counselor, Ms. Baldanado, for nominating me for this award. Giving back to the community is something I am very passionate about, thank you for acknowledging my efforts,” Robi told the crowd as she accepted the Bernard K. Melekian award plaque and the $500 check that goes with it. Robi started her volunteer work as a young girl when she turned a tragic accident into something positive. In sixth grade, Robi and her mother were involved in a serious car accident after they were hit by a drunk driver. Robi and her mother were both seriously injured. Instead of remaining traumatized and wallowing in emotion, Robi courageously channeled her strength and will to turn the tragedy around by volunteering with MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving). Since then, she has been giving speeches to youth groups, detention facilities, first-time offenders and high school and college students to raise awareness about the dangers of drunk driving. 40
compare to speaking to and impacting the lives of her classmates. Robi says that one of the most rewarding parts of her work with MADD, is after a presentation, when people come up to her, and share a personal story about drunk driving or alcoholism affecting their family. “It never ceases to amaze me, the vast amount of people whose lives are negatively affected by alcohol. I am always moved by the honest and surprisingly candid stories that people who I have just met feel comfortable sharing with me. I go into a presentation with the goal of educating and inspiring others. However, I leave having been inspired by the individuals I meet.” In presenting the Bernard K. Melekian award, Pasadena Police Foundation Advisory Council member Angela Hawekotte, said that “Jen is a kind of person who does not let life challenges set her back. She refuses to be discouraged or defined by her obstacles. She is a fighter and quitting is not in her vocabulary. She is passionate in her work and will continue with her volunteer work through college. She wants to dedicate her life to volunteer work. Jen lives the La Salle motto, Continued on page 59
La Salle Senior
FIRE EXPLORER PROGRAM P By Vicky Paluch
reparing himself for a future career in the fire service, La Salle senior Will Gifford recently graduated from the 52nd Los Angeles Fire Department Explorer Academy. The training these Explorers received was nothing less than grueling, and nothing less than what would be expected of professional firefighters. “During the Academy, I experienced the hardest six weekends of my life,” stated Will, who said becoming a firefighter has been his dream as long as he can remember. The first weekend, he and the others in Battalion 4, Post 4 trained at Camp 8 in Malibu with the personnel who are responsible for wild-land firefighting. The following few weekends of training at the County Fire Department’s Operations Headquarters were dedicated to hose lays, ladder commands and proper fire fighter survival. Fire Fighter Specialist Pete Ramirez of Los Angeles County Fire Station 82 in La Cañada served as the adviser to Battalion 4, Post 4. “The final day of the Academy, we traveled to Lancaster to do a “live burn” which is where we enter a room filled with fire and we experiment with different levels of heat and how the water interacts under certain conditions,” he explained. For the graduation, the Fire Explorers put on quite a show. “Two vehicles parked in concrete grounds of the training center just exploded,” Will said of the October 13 graduation exercise. “And we had to put them out.” In addition to that, Will and the other Explorers demonstrated all the skills and techniques they learned while in the Academy, including building ventilation, over-the-side rope placement, SCBA’s (Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus) and ladder placements. “Along with the physical demands of working for two days straight, there was the mental aspect that I had to quickly overcome,” Will said. “I had to keep my boots polished, my uniform neat and keep the station orderly. Everything we did as a group had a purpose, from filling the coffee pot to saying ’yes sir’ or ’no sir’ to the captains.” Since his graduation from the academy, Will has already participated in several “24-hour ride-alongs.” During these events, he is expected to use the training he received in the academy to assist county fire department personnel on emergency incidents and participate in other station activities and duties. “I stay in the same quarters and participate in the same way I would if I had been a paid fire fighter,” Will said. After all that, he is even more determined to pursue a career in the fire service. FALL / WINTER 2013
Junior Helps “Seniors” Earns GOLD AWARD
SCIENCE RESEARCH FILLS SUMMER FOR
Emma at her booth at the Health & Wellness Fair in Sierra Madre
By John Blackstock ’67
fter the horrific windstorms of December 2011, the residents of Sierra Madre were left without power for up to seven days. That’s when Emma Martinez ’14 got an idea for her Gold Award Project for Girl Scouts. “We live in an area with many seniors, who were very worried, scared, cold, and unprepared,” said Martinez. “ I felt I just needed to help. I kept thinking about my grandparents in Pasadena and how much danger they were in.” Over the course of the next six months, Emma was able to raise $3,275 in order to put together 250 disaster preparedness kits for the elderly in Sierra Madre. She obtained two mini grants of $500 each from the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) and the Sierra Madre Rotary Club. In addition to these two grants, she raised the remainder of the money by babysitting, holding yard sales, establishing a web donation page, and obtaining pledges from family and First Lady, Michelle Obama recognized Emma friends. for her efforts and sent her a letter of Through presentations to congratulations for her meaningful project. seniors and by getting the word out in the Sierra Madre Patch, she was able to have a booth at the Wellness Fair for Sierra Madre seniors at Memorial Park on September 22, 2012. At the Fair she was able to reach out to local seniors and distribute her kits. Each kit cost approximately $13 and included non-perishable food, water, light source, emergency blanket, whistle, and first aid kit. “It was funny because it was hard to give the kits away at first. The seniors couldn’t believe they were free!” she says amused. Ultimately, the seniors in the Sierra Madre community were quite pleased with her contribution toward their safety. “It was great to see Emma accomplish her goal, make a difference, and enjoy the support of her family, friends, and neighbors as well as community,” said her mother Sue. Emma has been in scouting since kindergarten, and is a member of Troop 2171 in Sierra Madre. “This Gold Award project took over 100 hours to complete, but was well worth it in the end when I was able to see the smile of gratitude in so many kind faces. My grandparents got a kit too,” Emma said. 42
enior Emily Paluch conducted cutting edge research into the ways in which materials are processed and combined to create designer materials such as solar cells and stronger metals during an eight-week program at UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science. Under the mentorship of graduate student Jonathan Quan, Materials Science Professor JennMing Yang and visiting professor Arie Venkert, Emily and her partner, Sandy Babich, studied the effects of oxygen concentration on zinc oxide nanostructures grown by chemical vapor deposition. They conducted their research in the Hybrid Materials Lab at the department of Materials Science and Engineering. Emily was among 54 high school students selected from over 300 applicants to participate in the 2012 UCLA High School Summer Research Program. In addition to conducting research, the students learned about the latest research trends by studying journal articles and listening to presentations from various professors of different disciplines. They also met with engineers from such companies as Raytheon and Northrop Grumman to learn about the industrial applications of engineering. At the conclusion of the program, all of the students gave presentations on their findings to their peers and mentors, as well as producing scientific posters to summarize their research. The process mirrored that of academia. Displaying their work at the program’s closing Poster Symposium, the students discussed their work with the Associate Dean Richard Wesel, and other professors and graduate students, all of whom volunteered their time to the program. The UCLA High School Summer Research Program was started in 2006. Demonstrating UCLA’s dedication to nurturing the next generation of American engineers, the program provides an “incentive award” to students or the opportunity to live on campus for the eight weeks. UCLA HSSRP is sponsored by The Nicholas Endowment, Lockheed Martin, and the Samueli Foundation.

It’s important to be Ernest By John Blackstock ’67 and Vicki Paluch
La Salle thespians took audiences on fun-filled “Wilde Ride” into the English countryside where mistaken identities and deception run roughshod over Victorian manners in Oscar Wilde’s delightful comedy, “The Importance of Being Earnest.” The play was performed before SRO crowds during its nine-performance run in the Linda M. Grindstead Theatre in November. Ms. Lucas painstakenly kept true to the era in costuming and sets. Because of the “abundance of talent, or at the least, very dedicated actors,” said a member of the crew, was performed by two casts.
Luke Bolle ‘14, and Tesia Meza ‘13.
Directed by Jude Lucas, Wilde’s “trivial comedy for serious people” was a biting satire of Victorian manners. The script brims with Wilde’s acerbic wit, as found in a quote from the play’s Lady Bracknell: “To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune. To lose both looks like carelessness.” The comedy tells the story of two young gentlemen living in 1890’s England who have taken to bending the truth in order to put some excitement into their lives. Jack Worthing (Ari Harris/ Spencer Raines) has invented a brother, Ernest, whom he uses as an excuse to leave his dull country life behind to visit the ravishing Gwendolyn (Cheyanne Williams/ Dani Pomeroy). His best friend, Algernon Montcrieff, (Luke Bolle/ Alec Gillies) also has decided to take the name ‘Ernest’ when visiting Worthing’s young and beautiful ward, Cecily (Tesia Meza/Emily (Kate) Coolidge) at the country manor. Things start to go awry when they end up together in the country and their deceptions are discovered, threatening to spoil their romantic pursuits. Add to the mix, the acerbic Lady Bracknell (Taylor ArrighiBracci/Maddie Pefferle), who is Gwendolyn’s no-nonsense mother, who proves to be a force of, if not nature, the Victorian upper class, Jessica Messineo as Miss Prism, Johnny Consiglio as Rev. Chausable, and Ryan Browne as Merriman. Members of the second cast include Emily Wright as Miss Prism, Andrew Ting as Rev. Chausable, and Bailey Le Roy as Merriman. Dominic Dagandon as Lane and Thea McKay as Anne appear in both casts. This was another outstanding theatre performance showcasing the extraordinary talents of La Salle students and highlighting our allencompassing Arts Program.

Oh, the Places
Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to great places! You’re off and away!” This year’s theme for the 124th Annual Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade is “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” based on the American classic written by Dr. Seuss. His book, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” transcends all ages as it talks about the journey that life has to offer, as well as the new experiences and chapters all people face as time passes. The theme “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” is a perfect representation for every young lady that tries out for the historical Rose Court. Each young woman fights for the chance to fill one of the seven prestigious spots in the hope that she can start a new chapter in her life as one of the members of the Rose Court. On October 8, 2012 one of those spots was given to Senior Tracy Cresta. Oh, the places Tracy will go as one of the 2013 Rose Court princesses.
By Jade Rogers ’01
ladies would be a part of the Rose Court, and Tracy, number 376, was called to the front to accept her bouquet of roses. Tracy, similar to her favorite mammal the dolphin, epitomized generosity, intelligence, kindness, and the willingness and ability to explore new surroundings. She defined what the judges were looking for. Tracy explained, “The judges know when a girl is being genuine and they also really like it when a girl has proper manners. Wearing the same rainbow striped dress helped too. I felt it went with my personality, as well as the theme “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” The judges must have agreed because they nicknamed me the ‘The Themed Dress Girl.’” From October to January, Tracy will attend more than 100 community service and philanthropic events. These will include visits to retirement homes, schools for adults and children with disabilities, photo shoot opportunities, and public relations visits.
TRACY CRESTA ’13 SELECTED AS 2013 ROSE PRINCESS On September 15, 2012, Tracy, along with over 900 other young Rose Court hopefuls, gathered at the Tournament House for their first day of tryouts. Tracy said, “It had always been a dream of mine to be a part of the Tournament of Roses Royal Court. I would watch the parade every year and wish that someday I could be on the float and be given the opportunity to represent my hometown of Pasadena.” Tracy, wearing her rainbow striped dress and a dolphin necklace, went into the Tournament House feeling relaxed, feeling like herself and not afraid of the judges. Tracy says, “I wanted the judges to recognize me from previous interviews. So, after the first round I kept wearing my rainbow striped dress and dolphin necklace in the hopes that my favorite animal would give me luck.” Wearing the same dress and dolphin necklace definitely paid off because as over 900 girls dwindled to 250, then to 75, and then to 33, it was finally announced on October 8 which seven 46
Tracy, along with the other ladies of the Rose Court, visited Ability First in Pasadena for their Halloween Party and also went trickor-treating with the children at Huntington Hospital. Upcoming events for Tracy will include a trip to to Disneyland, a visit with the 2013 Grand Marshal, Jane Goodall, riding in the Goodyear Blimp, and meeting the players of both of the football teams that will compete in the Rose Bowl. “The best part of being on the Rose Court has to be meeting new people. It’s fun and rewarding to spend time with new and interesting people. I am thankful to be able to spend some time and to make a difference in the lives of others, especially at the hospitals that we have visited.” Tracy is appreciative to meet with and learn about so many different individuals and to be able to share stories with them, give a smile, or even sit down and listen to what they have to say. What Tracy is looking forward to the most is riding on the float down Colorado Boulevard on January 1, 2013. She says, “I am
beyond excited about riding on the float New Year’s Day, especially with these six other girls that I now consider to be my sisters. As members of the Rose Court, we are doing our best to enjoy every moment while we represent not only the city of Pasadena and our schools, but the Tournament of Roses. But I’m extremely proud to say that I am a La Salle Lancer at any event.” Though she is busy with Rose Court duties, Tracy continues to be involved with activities at La Salle. She is a member of the National Honor Society (NHS), California Scholarship Federation (CSF), Student Ambassadors, the Lasallian Education Advantage Program (LEAP), and the Physical Activity Club (PAC). Tracy is also the Captain of the School’s Cross Country and Track and Field teams. Off campus, Tracy goes to the Los Angeles Union Station
every three months with her mom to cook meals and she is also involved in her parish community as an altar server, Eucharistic minister, usher, and decorator for the holidays. Once Tracy graduates from La Salle, she plans on either attending San Diego State University or Loyola Marymount University. She hopes to become a lawyer and later a judge. Since becoming a Rose Princess, Tracy feels she has grown more as an adult. Her manners have become more refined, she feels she has a wider range of vocabulary, and she no longer has a fear of public speaking. Tracy is off to a great and memorable start as one of the 2013 Rose Court princesses. And will she succeed? Well, as Dr. Seuss says in Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, “You will indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed). Kid, you’ll move mountains.”

pl ay headed for
OFF BROADWAY By Vicky Paluch
ith her sights set on an acting career in New York City, Monet HurstMendoza graduated from La Salle in 2005 and went to Marymount Manhattan College as a theatre arts major. She wanted to concentrate on musical theatre but, as luck would have it, she was wait listed for the program. When forced to consider other department options, playwriting and directing captured her imagination. “Prior to that I hadn’t really thought about writing. I enjoyed it, but I wanted to be an actor. Then, I remembered that I had this play that I wrote as a senior at La Salle in Theatre Practicum,” she recalled. “I showed them my play “Rail,” about a teen-age drug addict, and, next thing I knew, I was in the playwriting program that admitted only six students.” Now, at age 25, Monet is in an even more rarefied environment. She is awaiting the first fully-staged production of one of her plays off-Broadway. The play, “Veil’d,” is slated to be produced in 2013. “Theatremania” website featured Monet last spring in a special report on getting your first play produced. Monet credits her success to Jude Lucas, La Salle’s Visual and Performing Arts Department Chairperson. “She taught us how to be professionals and how you have to learn everything.” “In the senior year of Theatre Practicum, Ms. Lucas gave us an assignment to write a 10-page play and told us to turn it in the next class. I came back with 50 pages,” recalled Monet, who attended La Salle on a San Miguel Scholarship. “I couldn’t stop writing.” Ms. Lucas said that Monet had a special quality from the very start. “Monet was the most driven student. She had this wonderful energy and focus,” said Ms. Lucas. “Her work ethic and professionalism as an actor translated to her writing.” Monet graduated from Marymount Manhattan College in 2009 with a degree in theatre arts with a dual concentration in writing for stage and directing. When she graduated, she received the 2009 Gold Key for Excellence in Theatre Arts, Writing for Stage. Written as her senior thesis for college, her off-Broadway-bound play “Veil’d” tells the story of a 16-year-old Afghan girl living in America. She has a skin allergy to the sun, forcing her to protect her skin with a burqa. The play deals with the struggles of her immigrant parents and their daughter’s desire to become Americanized. The play has been presented in a staged reading and in workshop performances. The performance next spring will be a fully-staged Equity workshop. A college internship with the Rising Circle Theatre Collective led to her current position as its literary manager. “I’ve learned so much about writing through this job,” she said. She also works as a box office manager for Vital Theatre Company and Theatre Row Studios. She is a semi-finalist for the Julliard School’s Playwriting Fellowship and the 2012-2014 Women’s Project Playwright’s Lab. Since graduating college, she has made the connections necessary to work within the theater world, which has allowed her to self-produce her plays, 48
direct plays and produce the plays of others. In addition to “Veil’d, her plays include “The Annex,” “Homecoming,” “In the Waiting Line,” “ShangriL.A.,” “Lilia” and “Jane’s Room.” “I identify myself as a female playwright of color,” Monet said. “I am telling stories from a perspective that is not heard on stage very much.” Her plays, such as “Lilia,” confront social problems head on. “Lilia” tells the story of a 14-year-old prostitute in Mexico during the 1930s. The girl turns to prostitution because her mother is an alcoholic and Lilia feels she has to care for her. The town priest tries to tame the girl’s wild streak and becomes the subject of the town’s gossip mongers. “It’s based on my grandfather’s town,” she said. “I’m hoping to get it produced in 2013-2014. It’s been in development for years.” Her first directing credit was also at La Salle, where she directed “Little Murders” as part of La Salle High School’s Performing Arts Conservatory. At Marymount she directed “Mud,” “Springtime,” “The Distance from Here,” “Rabbit Hole,” “A Month in the Country,” and “365 Days/365 Plays.” She estimates that she has directed some 80 plays in college and after, but she says she never directs her own plays. “I added the directing track at college because of Jude,” Monet said. “She’s an actor and brings an actor’s sensibility to her directing. And, of course, she does everything. She taught me professionalism from the time I was thirteen onward.” At La Salle, she performed in “Mad Woman of Chaillot,” “Man of La Mancha,” “Rhinoceros” and “Tartuffe,” among other works. “I was very, very blessed to have been given a San Miguel scholarship,” she said. “It allowed me to learn, act, direct and and discover myself.”
Teaching Teachers By Jade Rogers ’01
n October 19-21, 2012, science teachers Chija Bauer, Anthony Fernandes, Brian Miller ’79, and Kjersti (Housman) Holyfield ’04 attended the 2012 California Science Education Conference in San Jose. This year’s conference focused on the Common Core Standards, the Next Generation Science Standards, Literacy, and STEM to Career. Only 180 workshops were selected for the conference out of more than 1,450 presented for selection. The La Salle Science Department was honored to have three workshops selected: “Global Warming Cumulative Project for Physics,” “Inquiry Based Physics Classrooms and Standard Based Grading,” and “Low Budget Manipulatives to Teach Chemical Stoichiometry.”
La Salle Science Department gives Three Presentations at the California Science Education Conference Brian explained, “We brainstormed and came up with four proposals. The proposal period opened in November 2011 and ended at the end of January 2012. Accepted presenters were notified at the end of March 2012. We feel very fortunate and proud that we had three workshops accepted of the 180.” Chija and Kjersti co-presented “Global Warming Cumulative Projects for Physics,” which was based on their big end of the year project in physics. Chija says, “One of the goals of this project was to have the kids examine global warming through the lens of physics. We cover fluid dynamics, as well as thermodynamics, which can be directly applied to studying the causes of global warming.” The other workshop that Chija co-presented with Kjersti was “Inquiry Based Physics Classrooms and Standard Based Grading.” Chija said, “Last year, we made the change to a more inquiry based physics classroom. Along with this we changed our grading style from the typical tests, quizzes, labs, etc., to a standards based grading system in the hopes of supporting student learning even more.” The third workshop, “Low Budget Manipulatives to Teach Chemical Stoichiometry” was co-presented by Brian and Anthony. According to Brian, “Anthony and I put together a presentation that included teaching stoichiometry by providing the students with manipulative tools to help them succeed. We also incorporated the ideas of teaching the Three C’s: teaching students to Think Critically, Communicate Effectively and Work Collaboratively, as a means of changing the dynamics of the classroom and placing learning in the hands of the students.” This was the first time Chija, Anthony, Kjersti, and Brian have presented together at a major conference. Prior to the 2012 California Science Teacher Association conference, Brian presented workshops at Assumption, St. Elizabeth’s, St. Dominic’s, Burbank Middle School, and the Los Angeles Academy of Arts and Enterprises. Chija is currently running workshops in Southern California for new physics teachers. She holds these workshops three times a year at various universities. Chija ran a workshop in August 2012 at USC and at Cal State Long Beach in December 2012. FALL / WINTER 2013
Receives Alumni Award for Excellence in Academics By Dr. Richard Gray, edited by Jade Rogers ’01
“Even by the standards set by the characteristics of previous recipients of the Brother T. Mel Anderson, FSC Award, Brandon Birr ’03 is a remarkable individual,” commented Dr. Richard Gray as he introduced Brandon as the 2012 recipient of the Brother T. Mel Anderson, FSC Alumni Award for Excellence in Academics. During his four years at La Salle, Brandon was actively involved in Pi Alpha Chi, Student Ambassadors, LEAP, Junior Classical League, Chorus, and Track and Field. But what Brandon was most actively involved in was Campus Ministry. He says, “It was through my volunteer work at St. Dominic’s in Eagle Rock that I was able to fill a need at La Salle while a student. My faith has always been important to me, and that can be found in my inspiration to work and be involved in Campus Ministry.” This deep commitment to co-curricular programs as a student at La Salle did not prevent him from succeeding academically as well. He received the Archdiocesan Christian Service medal, selected by the faculty to be the Commencement Speaker at graduation, and also received the Bank of America and Senior Class Scholastic Award. After graduating from La Salle, Brandon attended St. Mary’s College in Moraga, where he majored in History and minored in Spanish. Prior to attending St. Mary’s, Brandon became familiar with the campus from when he participated in student leadership programs sponsored by the Christian Brothers. He says, “As a student at La Salle I participated in three Lasallian Youth Assemblies, the last one taking place at St. Mary’s. The Lasallian Youth Assemblies were community service conferences geared towards students who did community service at their respective high schools.” His commitment to community service deepened while at St. Mary’s when he was given the opportunity to work at 50
three Lasallian schools: De Marillac Middle School in San Francisco, St. Mary’s College High School in Berkeley, and San Miguel High School in Tucson, Arizona. Upon graduating from St. Mary’s, Brandon had a growing passion for teaching and it wasn’t long after that he was notified about a position for a Social Studies teacher and Service Coordinator opening at La Salle, leading Brandon to come back to where it all began. He says, “I wanted to come back to La Salle because I have a great respect for the Lasallian Mission and the Christian Brothers, and I wanted to help the Mission continue to grow.” Brandon took on his responsibilities at La Salle with the same enthusiasm that characterized him as a student. Taking on a hefty load of classes in the Social Studies Department, serving as part of the adult team of Student Life, and his dedication to the Lasallian Mission resulted in him getting selected for the Christian Brothers’ Discerning Leaders Program which nurtures talented educators serving in Lasallian schools on the West Coast with a view towards preparing them to become the next generation of academic administrators. Brandon currently serves as a Religious and Social Studies teacher, the Liturgy Coordinator, and Co-Moderator of the San Miguel Program. To Brandon, the Lasallian Mission teaches students to use God’s gifts to the best of their abilities in order to live lives of compassion. It is his students that keep him committed to the Christian Service. He says, “I love what I do and I see the value of working with them on a daily basis. I think they teach me more than I could ever teach them.” It is Brandon’s continuous devotion to the Lasallian Mission that resulted in him being honored to receive the Brother T. Mel Anderson, FSC Alumni Award for Excellence in Academics.

Adopt-a-Family ’Enter to learn, leave to serve.’” Hawekotte continued, “It is clear that Jen wants to pursue a career where she can help others.” After high school, she hopes to live out Saint La Salle’s mission of serving the poorest of the poor. To this day, Robi continues her advocacy against drunk driving and regularly gives speeches on the topic. (It is estimated that Robi has spoken to over 50,000 youth since first starting her volunteer efforts with MADD). She is also an acknowledged expert on the effects of drinking on teenagers. She works closely with the Los Angeles Police Department, and is an instructor for their Cadet Traffic Safety Program. Despite her busy schedule, Robi is also active in sports, particularly basketball. She is a La Salle student ambassador and a member of various clubs, including the Spanish Club, Helping Humanity and Support Our Troops. “My favorite part about La Salle is the great sense of community between the faculty, staff, and students. I truly consider La Salle an extension of my own immediate family. I have always been awestruck by the dedicated faculty and staff, who work tirelessly to ensure their students succeed. The teachers here truly live out Saint La Salle’s mission to nurture, challenge, and inspire the students entrusted to their care,” she says. Robi has also earned membership in the National Honor Society and the California Scholarship Federation. Off campus, Robi has participated in Girl Scouts, Healing Hearts Across Borders, and also volunteers as a member of the leadership team at the Santa Teresita Medical Center. Only recently, Robi made it to the top 25 candidates for the Tournament of Roses Royal Court. Robi plans on going to the University of Southern California. “I was born and raised a Trojan, and plan on attending USC sometime in my academic career.” Robi has not settled on a major, because she says, she has a variety of interests from Theology to Criminal Justice, and has not been able to confine her interests to one major. “As far as my future career path goes, I feel it is only fitting to quote one of my favorite teachers, Mr. Birr. He has told me on many occasions that ’If you ever want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.’” My life has been a testimony to just how true these words are. I have learned that there is no possible way for anyone to predict the future. However I have no doubt that I will pursue a career where I am using my talents to help others.”

Alum Gives Back in a
Planned Way By John Blackstock ’67
en Kreeble ’60 recently named a classroom in memory of his parents. “They sacrificed so much so I could go to a private school. It was something I just felt I should do.” His significant donation goes to the Brother Celestine Endowment Fund. He also gave a planned gift by naming La Salle in his will. As a member of the class of 1960, the first class at La Salle, Ken was always in the “senior” class. He was the basketball team manager under Coach Duffy Lewis and got to travel with the team. “A great bunch of young athletes that grew up to represent the Lancers well along with their great coach,” he says. With a new school and new teachers, it was a learning environment from day one. “Those teachers were tough but good. They gave me a confidence that made college a little bit easier I think. I remember once or twice I rewrote some English papers that I did at La Salle and got the best marks in my class in college,” he said with a laugh. “Mr. Alcorn was one of my favorites, but Brother Timothy could throw a mean eraser!”
After graduating from Cal State Los Angeles with a degree in anthropology and a minor in police science, Ken earned a JD from Southwestern Law School. “I wanted to be a district attorney, but I ended up defending public entities such as school districts and law enforcement agencies. My odd combination of majors actually helped quite a bit,” he says. He is currently a reserve Los Angeles County Sherriff and received his 40-year pin in August of 2012. “Without a doubt, I would not have been so successful in college or Law School if not for the solid faculty and education I found at La Salle, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. That is why I have also named La Salle in my will.” For more information about Planned Giving at La Salle please contact Jon Keates, Director of Institutional Advancement at 626.696.4344 or you may email him at email@example.com.
