From The Hip! One does not appreciate the complexity of the English language until they begin teaching a five-year old to read. I didn’t realize how difficult it was to explain how two words that sound the same can be spelled differently. Not to mention, how a word can have more than one meaning. A.J. and I recently encountered one such word in the pages of Dr. Seuss. char·ac·ter (krk-tr) n.[ME. carecter < OFr. caractere < L. character, an engraving instrument < Gr. charattein, to engrave] 1. the combination of qualities or features that distinguishes one person, group, or thing from another 2. moral or ethical strength 3. a) notable or well-known person b) person, especially one who is peculiar or eccentric 4. a) person portrayed in an artistic piece, such as a drama or novel b) characterization in fiction or drama 5. mark or symbol used in a writing system.

In September, Bob Peffle joined the faculty of La Salle College High School. No stranger to La Salle, having been the Varsity Soccer Coach for the last twenty-one years and being the father of two La Salle alums, Bob came to work “full-time” after thirty-four years as a teacher and coach in the Philadelphia School District. Instead of retiring from education, Bob chose to bring his skills and experience to La Salle and, by doing so, instantly brought respect and character to the classrooms and hallways where he roams. He joins the ranks of countless other faculty members who do the same: Joe Ciccimaro ’57, Joe Colistra ’64, Joe D’Angelo ’63, Pat Devine, Julia Maher, Mary Kay Mullen, and Mary Jo Smith – men and women whose character is matched only by their knowledge, professionalism, and ability to teach boys in a manner that would make our Founder (St. John Baptist de La Salle) proud. Likewise at La Salle are true characters – individuals whose unique style far exceeds the boundaries of an educator: Lew Clark, Jerry Evans, Marty Jackson, Diana Kelly McInaw, Frank Lichtner, Joe Parisi, and Pete Sigmund ’85 are but a few of our teachers who continue to distinguish themselves on a daily basis and have earned the respect of students and peers alike. All of these men and women comprise a group known as Lasallian educators and help to make La Salle College High School an institution of growth and diversity. Fortunately, I don’t need Webster’s New World Dictionary to define the word “character” because I work at a school that abounds with living examples.

In The Beginning by Eric C. Stone ’11

In the beginning, I saw a tower slowly appearing on the hill. In the beginning, I saw the emblem that represents love and learning. In the beginning, I saw my intellectual and spiritual home for the next four years. In the beginning, I saw La Salle. I first saw La Salle when I went to summer camp. I was only seven years old, but I loved everything about it. The teachers and counselors were fun to be around. I knew then that I wanted to attend La Salle. Orientation day was an experience that truly welcomed us to La Salle. When I got out of the car, I was greeted by warm “hellos“. Mr. Marchese and Brother Richard took a picture with me, while a cheerful Brother James stood behind the camera. The band welcomed us with songs, while the ladies in the Main Office greeted us with smiles. In homeroom, we were all awaiting our instructions so we could start as soon as possible. After taking a tour of the campus and getting our ID photo, we made our way into the auditorium for a liturgy and some welcome speeches. All of the administrators who spoke gave a clear message of what the true La Salle Gentleman was supposed to be. It was truly inspiring and gave us the energy to learn the Alma Mater from Mr. C (Joe Ciccimaro). After a couple of tries, we finally achieved the volume that he was hoping us to reach. After that, we went outside to plant our class tree. It was a long walk, but it was worth the symbolism that gave all of the points mentioned by the speakers an image. As Orientation Day came to an end, it gave the entire freshman class hope for the first day of classes. So, we, too, can grow into a true Lasallian. As I come to a close, I’d like to think that my journey up that hill has just begun. As I understand more and more what a true Lasallian is like, I take one more step up that hill. Right now, I see the great reward ahead of me, the distinguished, proverbial tower that is achieving all that makes you a La Salle Gentlemen.

New Rowing Coach

To Appalachia and Back

Christopher J. Doyle ’69 was hired in September as the Head Coach of Rowing. Chris was a three-year varsity letterman and a Scholastic National Champion while at La Salle. He is extremely active on the Masters rowing circuit, and has won dozens of Masters National Championship medals, including captain of the winning quad in the age 50+ category at last year’s FISA World Masters Regatta. Chris has been living in the New York City metro area for the past sixteen years, where he was an executive with Mercedes-Benz USA. He was a Trustee of Nereid Boat Club, and the Director of Rowing Programs, in which he supervised five high school programs. He was the Varsity Crew Coach at Ridgewood High School and is now an active member of Whitemarsh Boat Club in Conshohocken, PA.

From June 9-15, 2007, fifteen students, along with Tom Devlin ’00 and Lew Clark, immersed themselves in the culture, labor, and environment of Eastern Kentucky. The team’s mission was to work on repairing and building homes for impoverished families in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity in Phelps, KY.

Building Bridges of Solidarity

Back On Top Of The Leader Board

Once again, a group of young Explorers headed to South America in an effort to spread the Lasallian spirit in Cochabamba, Bolivia. The boys helped to build schools, spent time with children and burn victims at a a public hospital, and provided food and clothing to those in need. Donations of food, clothing, and supplies were collected by the group, transported to Bolivia, and donated to public clinics, orphanages, and the villages of Vila-Vila, Zorochi, and Pirhuas.

After going undefeated through the league schedule, the Golf Team captured their eleventh Philadelphia Catholic League Championship in the last thirteen years on Monday, October 1, 2007 at Center Square Golf Club. The Explorer’s team total of 456 was 34 strokes better than second place Monsignor Bonner. The victory was a redemption of sorts for the Explorers who lost by two strokes in last year’s championship. In addition to the team title, all eight members of the La Salle team gained All-Catholic honors, including junior Kevin Genuardi who shot a 3-under par 68 and finished in first place.

Freshman and Fathers Branch-Out

Cross Country Wins Fifth Consecutive Championship Under the guidance of first-year coach Greg Bielecki ’99, the Cross Country team captured their fifth consecutive Philadelphia Catholic League Championship on Saturday, October 27, 2007 at a muddy Belmont Plateau. The Explorers had five runners finish in the top fifteen and were led by Dan Lowry who finished first overall. La Salle swept all three championships by winning the Junior Varsity and Freshman races.

On October 16, 2007 the entire Freshman Class, almost 200 fathers, and over twenty faculty/staff members traveled to twenty-two different service sites in the Philadelphia area for Freshman Branch-Out Day. The theme for the day was beginning the Lasallian journey of faith, service, and community. All told, the volunteers contributed over 1,600 hours of service to the organizations which included Catholic grade schools, food banks, nursing homes, and salvation army centers.

New York State of Mind

By Gail A Evans, CFRE

This past year, La Salle College High School has spent a good deal of time trying to reconnect with New York alumni. Even though the Big Apple is only two hours away from Wyndmoor, few alumni travel

Current New York Regional Roundtable Members Pietro V. Scola ’92 Chairman John Behan ’60 John M. Casper ’87 Domenic DiPiero ’63 Timothy J. Erb Jr. ’94 Gerald Hathaway, Esq. ’72 Michael McCarthy ’65 Martin P. Silvestri ’67 Walter L. Updegrave ’70

back for traditional alumni events. The solution? Take La Salle to New York! After hosting a few Alumni receptions in Manhattan, a few committed alumni raised their hands to our request to organize a formal New York Roundtable. The purpose of the Roundtable is to provide a forum for sharing important developments at La Salle and to serve as a catalyst to help plan future New York-based events. In many ways, they are serving as an extension of our Board of Trustees as they channel ideas and suggestions back to the Board for consideration. Pete Scola ’92, Managing Director at Wachovia Securities, who volunteered to serve as the group’s chair, hosted the first New York City Roundtable in November of 2006. Since that inaugural event, the group has met three subsequent times during 2007. From an outsider’s vantage, it has been interesting to hear the personal stories – where they came from, what a Lasallian education meant to them, how La Salle impacted their professional lives, what they would like to see for La Salle’s future. Everyone has a different story, yet all of them feel a strong sense of connection because of their experience at La Salle. The camaraderie among the group, even though they may be generations apart and their professions as different as their backgrounds, is pretty extraordinary. As each meeting comes to a close, a new member of the group volunteers to host the next gathering – a true indication that they enjoy each other’s company and their Wyndmoor visitors.

The social connection is only one aspect of this group. They are adamant that their mission extend beyond the social connection and have taken on the task of defining objectives that will ultimately benefit La Salle and its student population. Two such projects include: 1. a field trip for La Salle students to visit New York as a way to promote the region as a strategically advantageous area for students to continue their education and, eventually, their careers and 2. a mid-winter reception with a keynote speaker. Both events are being scheduled for the spring of 2008. If the enthusiasm and commitment of our New York alums are any indication of the level of success these events will bring, they will surely surpass our expectations. If you live or work in the New York region and would like to learn more about the New York Regional Roundtable or the events they are planning, please call the Office of Institutional Advancement at (215) 233-2350. Since La Salle is hoping to duplicate these efforts in other regions around the country, we would welcome hearing from you should you have an interest in leading up a similar effort.

Brotherly Love by Walter L. Updegrave ’70 Editor, Money Magazine

Mike McCarthy, Class of 1965, knows what it’s like to reach the pinnacle of business success in a city that’s renowned for setting the bar high—New York, New York. He spent twenty-one years of his career at Goldman Sachs, arguably the most prestigious investment bank on the planet, eventually becoming a partner and heading the firm’s municipal bond group, where he worked alongside such luminaries as Robert Rubin, who would go on to become Secretary of the U.S. Treasury, and Jon Corzine, now the Governor of New Jersey.


 Explorer Autumn 2007

Brotherly Love Continued

But even as his post-La Salle journey took him from the leafy campus of Princeton University to the halls of the Harvard Business School to Goldman’s offices in the steel-and-glass canyons of Wall Street, McCarthy never forgot the key role that La Salle played in his success. “I felt indebted to La Salle from the beginning because I received a scholarship,” says McCarthy. “It’s clear to me that La Salle led to Princeton, which led to Harvard, which led to Goldman. And I would never have gone to La Salle if I hadn’t gotten that scholarship.”

David McCarthy ’66

McCarthy has repaid La Salle’s largesse many times over in service to the school’s community. He served on La Salle’s Board of Trustees from 1994 through 2002, a period during which he and his fellow board members concentrated much of their effort on helping La Salle achieve its mission of providing a top-notch education while trying to give students from families of more limited means access to that education. He was also a co-chairman of the “Forever La Salle” capital campaign that between 1998 and 2002 raised some $10 million, money that has helped provide financial aid, expand athletic and music facilities and boost support for the La Salle Annual fund. In recognition of his service, McCarthy was inducted into La Salle’s Alumni Hall of Fame in 2004.

“I was a year and half older and a class ahead of him, but David wasn’t going to live under my shadow at La Salle.” But the project that has personally meant the most to him is the scholarship fund that he, his family and friends established in 1999 in memory of his brother David McCarthy, Class of ’66. Although the brothers shared an interest in athletics—both played football and rowed for La Salle—McCarthy remembers his younger brother as having the feistier personality of the two. “He was more willing to take risks and engage in pranks, things like setting off the school’s fire alarms one day,” says McCarthy. “I was a year and half older and a class ahead of him, but David wasn’t going to live under my shadow at La Salle.”

Mike McCarthy ’65

When David died at age 50, after a long struggle with multiple sclerosis, McCarthy felt that a fund providing tuition assistance to needy students would be a fitting way to honor his brother. Says McCarthy, “I’m sure he would have said this was a great idea, helping kids who can’t afford a La Salle education on their own.” Although La Salle has been a major beneficiary of McCarthy’s philanthropy over the years, it’s hardly been his sole focus. You could even say that public service in the broadest sense has been an underlying theme throughout his career. As a freshly minted MBA out of Harvard Business School in the early ’70s, McCarthy did consulting work for then California governor Jerry Brown that laid the groundwork for legislation that created the California Housing Finance Agency. Over the past 30 years, that agency has helped finance affordable homes for renters and first-time homebuyers who might otherwise be shut out of the state’s high-cost housing market.

And as he was winding down his career at Goldman, McCarthy used his position as chairman of an industry trade group to set up The Bond Market Foundation, a nonprofit that seeks to improve the financial literacy of individual investors. He still serves as chairman of the foundation, overseeing a variety of educational efforts including Tomorrowsmoney.org, a website that provides material on everything from budgeting to investing to managing credit. McCarthy has also made forays into the cultural front. In 2000, he started the Eureka Foundation, a nonprofit that funds educational programming for television and other media. He then turned to producer and La Salle classmate Marc Doyle (Class of 1965) to create “Great Museums,” a series of documentaries on noteworthy museums throughout the U.S. that runs on more than 200 public television stations around the country. The series has been an unqualified artistic success, winning, among other plaudits, seven CINE “Golden Eagle” awards for high production standards in filmmaking. Although McCarthy retired from Goldman Sachs in 1998, he hasn’t abandoned the business arena. He develops commercial real estate in Philadelphia, New York and Delaware with his brother Dennis and for the past five years has been involved in launching a new venture called VMAC, a company that does commodity trading with energy firms. His business, charitable and cultural activities certainly keep him busy. And then there are the usual parental demands that he and his wife Deborah face raising their two teenage sons, Daniel, 17, and Keenan, 15. But he always manages to find time in his tight schedule for La Salle. McCarthy is now a member of the recently formed New York City Regional Roundtable, a group of La Salle alums who live and work in and around New York City and who have distinguished themselves in areas ranging from entertainment and the arts to finance to publishing to law. In addition to building a tighter network of New York-area La Salle grads so they can play a more significant role in fundraising, the Roundtable also plans to host get-togethers with La Salle students in Manhattan. Ideally, the group would like to reach out to students at a time when they’re making key decisions about college choices and future careers to introduce them to the broad range of educational and career opportunities that America’s premier city can provide—opportunities that have enriched the lives of McCarthy and other alums, including his fellow Roundtable Member Jerry Hathaway who is profiled on pages 9 and 10. “The plans are still in flux,” says McCarthy, “but if we can get more grads in the New York area to reconnect with the school and create a forum for La Salle students who might be thinking of New York as a place to go to school or start their career, I think we can all benefit from that.” As important as McCarthy believes it is to get involved in public service, he doesn’t presume to tell others what form that service should take. “I can’t say that being involved with your school is more important than working for a local food bank,” says McCarthy. “But one thing I do know is that La Salle does a first-class job of educating kids as smartly and economically as possible. So if you’re looking for a way to invest your time or money to give something back, La Salle is a great place to do it.”

Living A Dream by Michael P. Dominick ’03

What is it about La Salle College High School that keeps its alumni so active and involved year after year? Ask Jerry Hathaway ’72 and he’ll tell you. Jerry Hathaway grew up in a small house on D Street and Tabor Road in the Olney section of Philadelphia, St. Ambrose Parish. With four boys under the age of 13 and a daughter on the way, Mrs. Hathaway lost her husband at a young age and moved the family from Texas to Philadelphia in order to raise her children around her relatives that had settled here. Growing up in what was slowly becoming a dangerous neighborhood, Hathaway could have easily slipped between the cracks of the system and gotten lost among the over-populated working class city schools. But his mother simply wouldn’t allow it.

Living A Dream Continued

The Hathaway Family (left to right): George ’69, Jerry ’72, Evelyn, Mike ’68, and Richard ’65, on the occasion of the wedding of Jerry’s eldest son in New York City in November 2006.

“When we got here, my mother immediately started asking around for the best schools, and she was told about La Salle” Hathaway reflects in a September interview. Even then, La Salle was not the cheapest of educations, but when Mrs. Hathaway heard it was the place to send your sons, she was determined to do just that. “Looking back, I don’t know how my mother was able to do it.” Hathaway’s three older brothers went through La Salle before him, Jerry following in tow. His first year was a struggle however, and it was not without the help of Marty Stanczak ’60 that he was able to return the following year.

“I, along with my three brothers, was able to determine what I wanted and figure out the means to go and get it, and I attribute a lot of that to La Salle.” In furtherance of his belief that La Salle was one of the pivotal moments in his life that shaped the success he is today, he joined his three brothers, led by Michael ’68, to establish what is called the “Hathaway Brothers’ Scholarship Fund.” Hathaway’s neighborhood in Olney was starting to become a tough neighborhood when he started high school. Drugs were coming into the area and violence started to pick up a bit. In September of his Junior year, while standing around on Roosevelt Boulevard, “doing no good – not doing anything bad, but certainly not anything good,” Hathaway was attacked and beaten up, leaving him in the hospital with a few gashes and some broken teeth. It was at this moment that Hathaway claims he decided to turn himself around. “I thought to myself, ’where is your life going?’ and I realized it wasn’t going anywhere, and I needed to change that.” Hathaway held to his promise, and soon began to thrive at La Salle. He got himself involved with the theater program here, where he even happened to meet his future wife, popular stage actress Ms. Kate McCauley (a Mount St. Joseph Academy graduate). Getting in with the right crowd and doing the right thing with his time was the best decision he ever made, claims Hathaway.

Years later, after pursuing a Bachelors’ Degree from La Salle University and going on to graduate from Law School, Hathaway sits in his New York City apartment looking back on his time he spent in Philadelphia. He and his wife Kate are the proud parents of three children, all of whom have grown up to be stellar students and prime examples of the determination and success Hathaway had modeled his life with. One of Hathaway’s children is none other than the famous movie actress Anne Hathaway, a determined individual who held a passion for performing since a young age but never once allowed it to affect the other aspects of her life. “I remember she wanted to take on a paying position with a theater company when she was fourteen, and it was going to be eight shows a week,” reflects Hathaway. “We told her that she needed to realize that this would become her extra-curricular activities, and if her grades slipped, she had to stop. She came out of her first semester of high school with a 4.0.” With a successful law practice in the heart of New York City on 3rd Avenue near the United Nations Plaza, as well as a life of happiness and excitement, it is absolutely fascinating for Hathaway to look back at his roots and think of how far he has come. “I, along with my three brothers, was able to determine what I wanted and figure out the means to go and get it, and I attribute a lot of that to La Salle.” In furtherance of his belief that La Salle was one of the pivotal moments in his life that shaped the success he is today, he joined his three brothers, led by Michael ’68, to establish what is called the “Hathaway Brothers’ Scholarship Fund” – an account set up to assist young men from the inner city to be allowed the opportunity and education that La Salle has to offer, an opportunity that, without the help of the Hathaway Brothers, would be unattainable. The Fund has been more than successful and has been a personal connection for the Hathaway Brothers (Richard ’65, Michael ’68, George ’69, and Jerry ’72) to the school that they believe led them to bigger and better things. “I am pleased to find out that we have just given our first scholarship to a student at La Salle,” Hathaway comments on his family’s donations to the school. Life has led Hathaway to a life he had never imagined, taking him to a successful life in New York, a family of fame, fortune, and happiness, and a sense of roots to his old Alma Mater that is stronger than it has ever been. La Salle College High School’s own Jerry Hathaway ’72 has taken his life and turned it around to give back to those who are starting where he did – a true La Sallian by any standard.

14 Explorer Autumn 2007

Dear Friends of La Salle, Words cannot adequately express the great pride I felt this past year as I watched our school and our students excel in so many ways. It was certainly a banner year for our sports teams – we captured seven Philadelphia Catholic League Championships, which created an incredible sense of excitement and pride among our students and school community. The glowing report we received from the Middle States validation team for reaccreditation was cause for great excitement and celebration among our faculty and administration. Watching our facilities plan begin to take form as the contractors began to prepare for the construction of a new academic wing has afforded our Board of Trustees a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. These are but a few of the tremendous achievements that have positively impacted our student and parents, our alumni, our faculty and administration, and our Board of Trustees. La Salle is, indeed, a school that is constantly “exploring” ways to enhance the educational experience for our students. None of these wonderful accomplishments would be possible if not for the generosity of so many individuals from all walks of life. La Salle is truly a diverse community of individuals who work together for the common good of our school and our students. There exists at La Salle a belief that something transformational happens to the students who pass through the hallowed halls of La Salle College High School. It isn’t something one can see or touch, but it’s there all the same. It’s something that all of us connected with La Salle value and are willing to support, sometimes sacrificially. Whether it is with our money, our talent, our time or our heart – we are committed to La Salle’s future. I am proud to share the names of these individuals with you in the pages that follow. Each name represents a commitment to the mission of La Salle and to its future. Each gift has touched the life of a promising young man. Collectively, we have seen the future through the eyes of our students and have blessed them with our caring support. Thank you again for supporting our boys so they can become our “Men of Tomorrow!” Sincerely yours,

Brother Richard Kestler, FSC ’60 President

Dear Friends of La Salle, This past year was not so much a year of transition, as was the case the year before, but more of a time of development and growth. A number of initiatives set forth in the Strategic Plan that La Salle’s Board of Trustees developed and refined over a number of years began to take shape, including breaking ground on a new academic wing this past May. The new wing is the first stage of a multi-phase facilities plan that will expand and enhance La Salle’s campus over the next several years. It is truly an exciting time at La Salle. As chairman of La Salle’s Board of Trustees, I can confidently report that La Salle’s administrative team has been working diligently to make our school the best that it can be and want to personally congratulate them and the entire faculty for all that has been accomplished on behalf of La Salle and our students this past year. They are the heart and soul of this fine institution and help to ensure that La Salle continues its long-standing tradition of educational excellence. Equally as important are our volunteers and donors. They are the foundation upon which all else depends. Without your love and support of La Salle, the vision we have for our school and our students would not be possible. You make things happen. From our parent support groups to our alumni – all play a critical role not only in La Salle’s future but also in our leaders of tomorrow. On behalf of the entire Board of Trustees, please accept my heartfelt thanks for your willingness to be part of something much larger than ourselves. Together we are building a better future – one student at a time. Sincerely,

Al J. Gabriele Chairman Board of Trustees

The Howard R. and Jennie Leary Grant Fund Howard Leary, like many young men from working class families, found himself dropping out of high school and going to work to help his family make ends meet. In 1931, however, Howard decided that he had made a mistake and applied to La Salle College High School. Although his parents could not afford to pay the tuition, the Brothers made it possible for him to attend La Salle. While attending La Salle, Howard was a star football player and demonstrated his predisposition as a leader during the two years he served as the captain of the football team. From these humble beginnings, Howard became one of the most revered and respected police commissioners in Philadelphia and, later, in New York City. A quiet and reserved man, he rarely spoke of his past, but he did talk about the Christian Brothers and La Salle, and how grateful he was for the wonderful opportunity he was given. It was a gesture of kindness that he would never forget or take for granted. In the years before he died, Howard Leary asked his wife to give whatever was left from their estate to La Salle College High School to make sure that young men who cannot afford to attend La Salle are provided the same opportunities that he had as a young boy. He also asked that preference be given to the sons of fire fighters and police officers. To honor her husband’s wishes, Mrs. Leary decided to establish an endowed scholarship fund with a portion of their existing assets. For the past seven years, twenty students have benefited from the Leary Endowment. Mrs. Leary has had the joy of seeing these students progress through their high school years and some going off to college. The Leary’s are providing for deserving students today, and through a future bequest, they will be ensuring that many more generations of La Salle students will reap the benefits of their generosity.

The Elizabeth B. Slabinski Scholarship Fund Coming from the small neighborhood of Bridesburg in Northeast Philadelphia, the name La Salle College High School was not in everyone’s vocabulary. Although everyone was furloughed to Father Judge, we did have a fairly good representation from our little hamlet, at least enough to get a carpool going. My mother, who besides running the family business after my father died when I was in 4th Grade, had her hands full, but still managed to maintain her role as a great mother to me and my older sister. Her upbringing and roots were from Camden, NJ and our world was focused between the Delaware River and Roosevelt Boulevard. Needless to say, La Salle College High School was not on our radar. My first experience at La Salle was that of a Catholic League basketball game. The school was a million miles away from home, but the moment I stepped on campus, an incredible feeling came over me from that short visit. The school was new, so much different from what I had been used to coming from one of the older parochial grade schools in the city. The real difference was not so much the bricks and mortar; rather, the total environment which I dared to enter. I really didn’t realize it until after taking the entrance exam, being accepted, and finally arriving at La Salle on the first day of school that the people at La Salle were what made it so different! They were like family. They became my new family. The administrators and teachers became my new parents and my fellow students became like brothers – the same way they remain today. My four years at La Salle were terrific; the only problem was that they went by too quickly. Luckily, one of my dreams was fulfilled when my son, Joe was accepted and became a student. The same problem occurred again when his graduation in 2001 became another La Salle highlight in my life. Over the past forty years, each and every time I leave Bridesburg and venture west up Cheltenham Avenue to La Salle, I still feel the goose bumps and excitement as if I were still a student. Whether I go back to La Salle for an Alumni Board meeting, a meeting of the Board of Trustees, or just to make a social call – it always feels like returning home. When I think back of all of the meetings, time, work, and financial support that I have given to La Salle College High School over the years, it pales in comparison to what La Salle has given to me.

The Donahue-Fitzpatrick Endowment Fund Like many families in the era in which we grew up, our parents raised five sons on one salary. Dad, who did not finish high school, was a sheet metal worker; Mom left high school early to help support her widowed mother and became a stay-at-home mother. Although neither of our parents finished high school, they understood the importance of education and encouraged each of us to always “do our best”. They saw and appreciated, as did our teachers at St. William’s grade school, the unique educational environment, the challenge, and the opportunities that La Salle College High School would provide for us. All five of us attended La Salle, and we helped to pay half of our tuition with monies from a paper route (the Donahue Boys had an Evening Bulletin route in our neighborhood for over eighteen years)! We knew that going to La Salle was very special. Building on the values which were ingrained in us by our loving parents, La Salle prepared us to pursue our lives and positioned us to choose almost any career option. Our parents sacrificed much for us to attend La Salle. We had no idea at the time how great their sacrifice was, and we had little appreciation of just how fortunate we were to be in the La Salle environment, at both 20th and Olney (the site of the old La Salle High School), and the “new” La Salle campus on Cheltenham Ave. As La Salle graduates, we knew we were well prepared for the future, because of an experience that was truly life altering. Because we all had such a positive experience at La Salle, we decided to establish a named endowment fund to honor the memory of our parents and their commitment to education. The fund will provide in perpetuity financial assistance to qualified students so they can pursue the same educational opportunities that we had as young men. For us, the Donahue Fitzpatrick Endowment Fund is our way of expressing thanks and appreciation for the LaSallian experience. We were taught then what La Salle young men are taught today – “Boys will be Boys but La Salle Boys will be Gentlemen”. Our society needs as many gentlemen as La Salle can produce, and our hope is that, through our gift, we will have played a small but critical role in the lives of hundreds of deserving young men.

The John Whalen ’67 Grant Fund John Whalen came to us in the fall of 1963 from Immaculate Conception Parrish in Germantown. As a member of the illustrious class of 1967, John has been a loyal “Brother’s Boy” ever since. All of John’s Philadelphia friends know him as “Jake”, a nickname that came down from his father before him. For the last 20 years “Jake” has lived and worked in the Washington, D.C. area. The Wharco Realty Co. has been the vehicle that “Jake” has used to find success in the area of property management and development. Living in Bethesda, Maryland with his wife Linda Rabbitt, John has settled into a career that has proved personally fulfilling and rewarding. John and Linda have 2 daughters, Ashleigh a professional opera singer, who has recently married and Lauren an attorney in D.C. Being a loyal alum and being mindful of the many generosities extended to him as a student while here at La Salle, Jake has stepped forward as one of the leaders of our “Fulfilling the Promise” campaign. His help in directing the campaign as a member of the campaign cabinet as well as his personal financial commitment has positioned La Salle for even more future successes.

Faculty/Staff Annual Fund

Parent Annual Fund

The 2006-2007 Faculty/Staff Annual Fund, chaired by Jerry Evans, was a great success. Members of La Salle’s faculty and staff contributed over $18,000 toward the Student Emergency Fund. This fund was established to help scholarship students who may find themselves unable to pay for incidentals such as textbooks, lunch, transportation, or some other expense deemed necessary for the good of the student’s educational experience. Thanks to the following individuals, all students have access to the resources needed to be a success at La Salle:

The 2006-2007 Parent Annual Fund, chaired by Cathy Cassidy and Jim McLaughlin ’57, raised over $125,000 in support of La Salle’s Professional Development Fund. This fund helps to ensure that faculty members can pursue graduate studies and attend programs related to curriculum development and other special educational programs such as formation in Lasallian mission and philosophy, which focuses on the spiritual component of educating La Salle students.

Pension Protection Act of 2007 Are you over 70? Are you required to take a minimum withdrawal from your IRA? Are your charitable contributions subject to the pesky 2% rule? Do your major assets reside in your IRA? A new law presents a wonderful opportunity through December of 2007 for individuals to utilize their IRA’s creatively to accomplish special philanthropic objectives. It took nearly a decade, but Congress has ­­finally enacted legislation as part of the Pension Protection Act of 2007 (PPA 2007), which offers charitably minded individuals a golden opportunity to make gifts from their IRA’s and exclude the amount of their gifts from gross income. To qualify for the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC):

• donors must be 70 1/2 years of age or older;

• transfers must go directly from the IRA to qualified charities;

• gifts cannot exceed $100,000 per taxpayer; and

• gifts must be outright. *

* Transfers to donor advised funds, supporting organizations, charitable remainder trusts, and charitable annuities do not qualify.

Until now, individuals withdrawing $100,000 from their IRA’s and contributing it to a charity would have had to include the $100,000 in their income and would have been allowed a federal charitable income-tax deduction. Ostensibly, the net result was zero tax implication – a “wash” for all practical purposes. The new law presents a significant opportunity for those taxpayers unable to use some or all of the charitable deduction. If you have any questions or to find out if you qualify, please contact our office at (215) 233-2350.

Legendary Coach Mixes Wins With Metaphors by Ted Silary Philadelphia Daily News

John F. “Tex” Flannery ’40 1 9 2 2

2 0 0 7

The only things John “Tex’’ Flannery cared about more than football were faith and family. And he absolutely loved football. Last fall, even after being diagnosed with cancer, he would show up almost every day at La Salle College High School to help guide the freshman players. Long before that, he had become a legend among the city’s head coaches, after enjoying a fruitful playing career, and even had met his wife because of his association with the sport. Flannery, who turned 85 on October 6th died on November 4, 2007. Such is life in the big city. Tex won’t mind if you say that aloud. In fact, he’d be honored. That was one of his favorite phrases, and he had a million of ‘em. Some even made sense. See, that was part of Flannery’s charm. He’d mix his metaphors – “It’s all water under the dam’’ – in the interest of providing entertainment and giving people stories to tell for the rest of their day, week, month, year, life. Flannery is mostly known in football circles for the twenty-nine seasons he spent as La Salle’s head coach (1956-84), where he posted a record of 149-115-12 in that span, winning Philadelphia Catholic League championships in 1957, 1958, and 1960 and City Championships in 1958 and 1960. But before that, for four seasons starting in 1944, he was a teacher at John Bartram and the school’s head football coach (17-17-0), and it was in that role that he met an Inquirer sports writer named Rosemary McCarron. The article first appeared in the Philadelphia Daily News on Monday, November 5, 2007 and has been reprinted with the permission of Ted Silary and the Philadelphia Daily News.

He cracked one-liners. She became his wife. Their son, Jack, now deceased, starred for Dad at La Salle as a quarterback. Their daughter, Mary, was a reporter for the Daily News and Inquirer and now directs communications for the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce. Another daughter, Kate, is Jack’s twin. Flannery and his wife attended Mass on a daily basis. If you mentioned you’d see him soon, he’d shoot back, “With the grace of God and the Blessed Mother.’’ He loved to read, especially books about politics, and offer opinions during Sunday night dinners at daughter Mary’s house. Among the captivated listeners was Mary’s son, John Connors, who somehow wound up playing football for La Salle’s gigantic rival, St. Joseph’s Prep. “He was my hero,’’ Connors said. “He was everything I want to be in life. “There he was, Mr. La Salle, and I was going to Prep. He was behind me 100 percent. My mom forbid him from going to Prep’s practices. Of course, that didn’t work. He always came to support me.’’ The younger grandson, Dan Connors, finished playing just last year for La Salle.

• Retired in 1984 after twenty-nine seasons as Head Coach

• Legendary “storyteller”

Why is he called Tex? As a young student at La Salle College High School, John Flannery read “dime store” western novels. In the summer of 1937, Jim Bonder, the Head Football Coach, spotted him reading on the beach outside Ocean Rest, the Christian Brothers’ Residence in Ocean City, and called him “Tex.” The nickname stuck and a legend was born.

Did You Know? Tex Flannery played on the last football team at La Salle College before the program was disbanded in 1941 because of World War II. Tex was the starting center against Providence College on November 16, 1941, in what would be the last home game played at McCarthy Stadium until the football program was eventually revived fiftysix years later in September of 1997.

“When I was a freshman, my mom said he could come watch our practices, but not go down to the field,’’ Dan said. “He couldn’t help himself.’’

Joe Parisi, who still holds the position, said he was handed an envelope by Flannery upon becoming La Salle’s baseball coach in 1986.

Early in life, the boys realized their grandpop’s stature.

“Inside was a one-year subscription to Coach magazine,’’ Parisi said. “That’s how Tex was. Very generous. He kept that going for five, six, seven years. Took me that long to learn.’’

“Everywhere we went, someone knew him,’’ Dan said. “ ‘I was a tackle for you in 1963. Things like that. It was non-stop.’’

He owned the Cherry Street Tavern, at 22nd and Cherry Streets, until selling it in 1990 to brothers Bill and Bob Loughery, former La Salle players whom he’d guided into the business.

Flannery lived as a youth on Wade Street, which takes up just one block near Greene and Manheim, in Germantown. He walked to La Salle, which then was located at 20th and Olney, and attended the college as well. In football, as an end, he earned first-team All-Scholastic honors (best players in the five-county area) from the old Philadelphia Bulletin in his senior season of 1939.

“We still talked on a regular basis,’’ Bill said. “Tex had such an impact on my life. He always accentuated the positive. That’s what he was all about.’’

Flannery was also a fixture at basketball games, and served as the longtime president of the Markward Club, which honors high school players.

Joe Colistra went back with Flannery to the fall of 1960, when he entered La Salle as a freshman. His own dad died young and Colistra came to view Flannery as a father figure.

Aside from his wife and children, Flannery is survived by ten grandchildren.

After leaving teaching, Flannery sold corrugated boxes and other items to pharmaceutical companies. Also, though he never smoke or drank, he became a bar owner.

He immediately joined Tex’s staff in 1968, after graduating from Villanova, and replaced him as head coach in 1985. His twenty-one seasons produced a record of 153-88-2, along with four championships. “The sayings. I always think of them when I think of Tex,’’ Colistra said. “ ‘When you win, pimples turn into dimples.’ My son [Paul] is an assistant now at La Salle. I find myself saying those things to him and he’ll laugh and say, ‘Where did that come from?’ ‘’

The viewing and Mass for Flannery will be held at La Salle College High School on Thursday evening, November 8, 2007 and Friday morning, November 9, 2007. Also, and this was decided a while ago, the field where the Explorers hold their freshman and JV games will be named for him during a homecoming event November 21, 2007. When Flannery retired as La Salle’s head coach, he did so by tossing his keys onto a desk and saying, in part, “All roads bend and all roads end.’’ For all 85 years, what a wonderful road it was.

Births

A fixture at La Salle College High School, Jim Rieck graduated fifty years ago as a member of the Class of 1957. He entered the Christian Brothers that same year and spent his early years as a teacher of Social Studies at Bishop O’Connell High School in Fairfax, VA. He has taught Religion, coached tennis, and served as Athletic Director as well as Dean of Students. In 1984, he returned to his Alma Mater and spent the next five years as Assistant Principal. He then spent three years as Principal of Archbishop John Carroll High School in Radnor before returning to La Salle College High School, where he has spent the last fifteen years as Director of Admissions. During this time, applications and admissions have been at an all-time high and the admissions process has been brought to a new level. He also currently serves as the Director of the Christian Brothers Community at La Salle College High School. Although Brother James has been charged with the arduous task of “capturing” students, he is perhaps best known for capturing a different side of La Salle’s student body. Brother can be found at almost every event with his camera in hand. There is not an event or team over the years that Brother James has not chronicled with his trusty Nikon D70 and his photos can be

found throughout our campus and in almost every school publication. His love for photography is surpassed only by his love for La Salle. Together they make the “perfect picture.” Brother’s distinct connection to La Salle and its students is perhaps most evident by his participation in Kairos – the retreat program for seniors. In Greek, Kairos means a “special time of the Lord,” and for the last six years, Brother James has made the trip to Camp Neumann to share his own life experiences and help La Salle retreatants take advantage of this special time. In all, Brother has served as a Kairos leader on fifteen different occasions. Brother James is an avid cyclist, having participated in a number of local events including Pedal for Prevention, which benefits Fox Chase Cancer Center. A true explorer by nature, his travels have taken him around the globe from Ireland to Alaska and Hawaii to Rome. All the time, the shutter and flash get a workout. At Graduation in June, Brother James received the President’s Medal (along with Marty Stanczak ’60) and joined his classmates as they celebrated their 50-Year Reunion from La Salle College High School. In October, he celebrated fifty years as a Christian Brother and was honored at the Union League by the Baltimore Province of the De La Salle Christian Brothers for his service to God, the Brothers, and Lasallian education.
