Teaching Scholars with a Soul


Marian Catholic’s

Discovery in Service students find that “the call is to community, the impoverished power that sets the soul free in humility, to take the vow that day after day we must take up the basin and the towel.”


A Message from Principal Steve Tortorello '04 Transformative experiences offer opportunities for discovery Through generations of teaching scholars with a soul, Marian Catholic has always strived to develop our students as well-rounded young men and women. The school’s mission statement calls on us not only to prepare our kids for college, but also to form them as future leaders who seek truth, exhibit personal responsibility, and cultivate their individual talents. Our goal is to provide them with a transformative experience that allows them opportunities to discover – discover their own talents, discover their connection to God and others, and discover the good they can do in the world. To that end, Marian Catholic constantly reviews and refines its practices to make sure our curriculum and overall program is cutting-edge and best suited to transform our students and prepare them for college and life. From the early introduction of AP classes decades ago, to the Leadership Program curriculum which we implemented in the mid-2000s in our Emmaus classes, to recent additions such as our engineering program, we continue to innovate and evolve in order to offer our students new and exciting opportunities to grow and learn. This issue of Marian Matters focuses on many of those unique opportunities. We hope that it gives you a glimpse into a handful of the transformative experiences our students have at their fingertips at Marian Catholic. From STEM to service, our kids are cultivating their talents and preparing to be a force for good in the world! Marian Catholic Mission Statement

Marian Catholic students seek truth, exhibit personal responsibility, cultivate their individual talents, and demonstrate ethical leadership and Christian service.


INNOVATING STEM EDUCATION

T

The transformation of Room 311 began in the spring of 2016 when Principal Steve Tortorello recognized a need to advance the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum at Marian Catholic. Given the predicted increase in STEM related careers, Principal Tortorello wanted to make sure students had the opportunity to train in STEM related disciplines – coding, engineering, computer-assisted design (CAD), and robotics. After consulting with education experts, including Dr. Matt Kloser, Director of the Center for STEM Education at the University of Notre Dame, Tortorello assembled a team of faculty and staff to forge a plan for the future. Room 311 had long served as a computer lab at Marian Catholic, but with the conversion to iPads in 2014, utilization of the room diminished drastically. Many students no longer needed a dedicated place to type and print papers since they were directly submitting their work to teachers electronically. The dormant resource room was ideally situated for repurposing as the school’s new STEM lab. Fast forward to 2018 and Room 311 is anything but dormant. Home to Marian Catholic’s engineering program, the room is “brimming with stuff” as Tortorello describes it. New tables, computer monitors, 3-D printers and a laser cutter afford students the opportunity to design and create. Computer Science and Engineering Teacher Sam Sullivan oversees the program and is moderator of the school’s Robotics Club. With a BFA in Theater from the University of Illinois and a BS in Computer Science from Governor’s State University, Sullivan may seem like an unlikely fit for the task, but it is clear he belongs in Room 311. “Engineering is a mix of science and design,” says Sullivan. “Having an artistic background compliments the math and science you need to be creative. Engineering is about innovation. You have to be able to think creatively and then back it up with math and science.”

Marian Catholic’s three-year engineering program is the perfect venue for Sullivan, who values the opportunity to teach and develop the next generation of scientific thinkers. In the first year of the program, as sophomores, students are taught the fundamentals of design and introductory mechanics. During the first semester, they build a miniaturized ski lift using any of the materials available in the lab. As juniors, students receive an introduction to computer-aided design and discover how to take an idea they have formulated in their mind and bring it to fruition. They learn how to use 3-D printers to manufacture their own components so they can build bigger, better things. Seniors are exposed to electronics and programming, with the end goal of building a remote controlled search and rescue robot. In the end, the students gain valuable skills in problem solving, design, critical thinking, time management, collaboration, and even writing (students have to submit a technical paper with every major project). According to Sullivan, their exposure to a variety of engineering topics – mechanical, civil, electrical, software – and an understanding of the design cycle, prepares them for any college engineering major. Sullivan is excited by student response to the program. “They enjoy learning. Every new project is something exciting for them to work on.” Often, Sullivan will find students in the STEM lab at Zero Hour (6:55 a.m.) anxious to see how their 3-D print design came out. Did it turn out the way they expected? What changes do they need to make in class? Perhaps it is not just Room 311 that has been transformed.

FR. O’MARA CELEBRATES 60 YEARS

as Priest, Pastor, Servant, Shepherd By Allen Marazas '64, Contributing Writer

Father O’Mara warmly welcomes faculty, staff, and students to his office near Marian Catholic’s chapel.

MARIAN MATTERS WINTER 2018


Marian Catholic will celebrate its 60th Anniversary next year, but another anniversary will take place in 2018 that is also worthy of note. In April, Marian Catholic’s Chaplain, Father William O’Mara, will celebrate the 60th anniversary of his ordination as a priest.

S

ixty years ago, Father O’Mara was one of 34 young men of the Chicago Archdiocese Class of 1958 who were ordained in April instead of the traditional May date because Cardinal Stritch was about to leave Chicago for a new appointment in Rome. Ironically, one of Father O’Mara’s first priestly duties was to join his classmates as pallbearers at the funeral of Cardinal Stritch who died unexpectedly a month after his arrival in Rome. Father O’Mara’s initial assignment was as an associate at Infant Jesus of Prague Parish in Flossmoor where his history and Marian Catholic’s intersected for the first time. In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, several young priests from nearby parishes, including Father O’Mara, regularly came to Marian Catholic to minister to the students and teach religion classes. This was in addition to the several Viatorian priests permanently assigned to various teaching duties at Marian Catholic. Father remained at Infant Jesus until 1964 when he was assigned to the newly built Quigley South Preparatory Seminary as a theology teacher. During his 13 years at Quigley, Father O’Mara coached baseball, soccer, and hockey in addition to teaching. A second Marian Catholic connection was made, as among his students were future Marian Catholic Vice-Principal John Kozojed and Director of College Counseling Gerry O’Brien. Following his years at Quigley South, Father O’Mara attended graduate school for two years at the University of South Florida in Tampa, while continuing his teaching career at Jesuit High School. Returning briefly to Quigley, he next accepted a position as Principal of Bishop Gorman High School in Tyler, Texas. After eight years as Principal and a subsequent eight-month sabbatical in California, he returned to Illinois in 1986 to become pastor of a newly formed parish in Orland Hills named after Saint Elizabeth Seton. Father O’Mara established the parish, built a church, and helped found Cardinal Joseph Bernardin Catholic School while

remaining pastor for 17 years until his retirement in 2003. In 2004, through his friendship with Sister Mary Paul McCaughey, OP, former Principal and President of Marian Catholic, and Father John Siemanowski, pastor of St. Agnes Church in Chicago Heights and an associate with Father O’Mara at St. Elizabeth Seton, Father O’Mara was drawn again to Marian Catholic. He became Marian Catholic’s Chaplain where he blessedly remains to this day. Looking back on his 60-year vocation as a priest, Father O’Mara remarked that his most satisfying years were those spent in an educational setting; at Quigley South, Jesuit High School, Bishop Gorman, and back at Marian Catholic. Father’s career has spanned the country from length to width as well as 60 years, but his life remains close to his Irish Catholic origins on Chicago’s Southeast Side. Those family ties are what led him to the priesthood and a career as an educator. As Marian Catholic’s chaplain, Father O’Mara celebrates Mass for students and staff in the chapel encouraging athletic teams, clubs, and classes to attend as a group at least once each year or at an important seasonal event such as Thanksgiving. He helps plan and celebrate all-school Masses throughout the year and provides liturgies for the faculty at their yearly retreat and beginning-of-the-year faculty meetings. He works with Campus Minister Justin Thirstrup '08 and is available to students and faculty for counseling or just conversation. A regular attendee at football, volleyball, and basketball games, he is one of the Spartans’ biggest fans. Students, staff, and parents greet him with respect and affection wherever they encounter him. His smile is tremendous, frequent, and welcoming. He is warm, honest, and open. He listens but does not judge, and most of all, demonstrates Jesus’ acceptance of all who come to him. Father O’Mara has been retired from his diocesan responsibilities for 14 years, but at a time of his life when many priests are contemplating a life of leisure in Florida, he shows no signs of slowing down. Without a doubt, Father O’Mara is a man devoted to God and his fellow man down to his very soul. It can be one thing to preach the Gospel and another to live the Gospel both of which Father O’Mara, by all accounts, has been doing quite well, thank you, for 60 years.

DISCOVERY IN SERVICE This coming year, 2018, will mark the 45th Anniversary of an iconic Marian Catholic Theology class known as Discovery in Service. Well over 2500 students have had the opportunity to take their Christian call to service outside the walls of Marian Catholic into the community and receive credit towards graduation in the process. Marian Catholic’s commitment to service is a reflection of the values of its foundresses, the Dominican Sisters of Springfield. However, it was Sister Margaret Rose Aulpz, OP, who taught Spanish for many years at Marian Catholic and organized a number of informal service opportunities, who incorporated service into the Theology curriculum and established Discovery in Service as an elective for seniors in the 1973-74 school year. Her idea took root and the class remains a unique opportunity for Marian Catholic students to reach out to surrounding communities while earning a half credit in Theology. Over the years, the program has continued to flourish under the leadership of a number of directors including Sister Kathlyn Mulcahy, OP, former Principal Sister Judith Anne Hasse, OP, Vice Principal Jack Heneghan, and past Campus Minister Mrs. Heather Graham. Former students involved in the program include Marian Catholic’s current President Vince Krydynski '81, as well as over a dozen alumni teachers and staff. Hundreds of

MARIAN MATTERS WINTER 2018

Discovery in Service alumni continue to put into practice the skills and ideas they gained in the class in the communities in which they now live. Sister Judith Anne recalls that several of the students who were in the class when she was the director, later went on to service careers of their own after leaving Marian Catholic. Today, the program is under the guidance of Mrs. Denise Iggins with a class of about 30 students each semester. In 1973, the class ran for the entire year. Students must arrange their schedules to allow the last two academic periods of the day to be devoted to Discovery in Service. They spend two days in class with Mrs. Iggins and three days at their service site, which might include working with youth at SPEED PAL, the elderly at an assisted living facility such as Sunrise of Flossmoor or Brookside Senior Living Community, or with adults with disabilities. In the past, service locations have included the Echo Program, Oak Forest Hospital, and several local schools where students assist teachers in both Special Education and regular classroom settings. In class at Marian Catholic, students examine and reflect on strategies for working with others, appreciating differences, giving service to those in need, social justice, and where God fits into all of these topics. They consider their own personal mission in life and the effect they can have on others. They share and discuss their experiences at their service sites and consider how what they are doing impacts both the people they serve and themselves. As a finale to the course, students are asked to create a project that reflects how they have grown and changed

because of their experience and how they are different from the person who signed up for the class. At their service sites, students are expected to not only observe what is happening, but to also get involved through hands on participation. Cassandra Martinez '18 reported, “In reality, we had to actually participate in the work sites.” This involved a number of activities that ranged from simple conversations to cooperative projects where the students worked side by side with elderly residents and the handicapped. Richard Wallace '18 shared his knowledge of technology with the residents of Brookside Senior Living Community to help them use their cell phones and other devices more effectively. He says, “Since my main base of operations is in the library, whenever any of the residents needs any help…they always come to me and I help them.” At Sunrise of Flossmoor, Dallas Carter '18 “helps them (the residents) with projects such as making arts and crafts.” Recognizing the loneliness that sometimes comes with advanced age, Dallas says, “I also try to talk to some of the residents individually. I think they really enjoy my company as much as I enjoy them.” As much as the students may enjoy their work later in the semester, at the beginning, some are uncertain about what to expect. Cassandra, whose assignment is at SPEED PAL, recalled, “When I signed up for the class, I didn’t know what to expect. I completely underestimated our responsibilities.” Dominic Gierczyk '18, who also works at SPEED PAL agreed, “I initially thought it was just going to be ‘you go there and do service’ but I actually have formed bonds with these kids and supervisors and I’m glad it turned out

that way.” Cassandra continued, “My service at my site has positively changed my outlook on life. People who don’t have the same difficulties as these kids take their lives for granted… These kids have to work twice as hard as we do…They have struggled and they have fought. They have an eagerness to learn every day and they make the most of it.” Other students also described how participating in Discovery in Service has changed their lives. Richard, who works with the elderly at Brookside Senior Living Community said, “Now I see life as more of an opportunity to help others.” Eden Harris '18, whose service site is Sunrise of Flossmoor, commented that Discovery in Service has “made me more grateful for the talents and basic functions that I have because a lot of the elderly people I’m around lack skills that I used to easily take for granted. It (Discovery in Service) has made me realize that to achieve happiness you must learn to love what you do and enjoy life and don’t take anything for granted. Discovery in Service has made me a more humble person.” Richard summed up a sentiment expressed by several of the students, “From this class I really learned that God places us on this earth to use the talents and gifts he gave us to help others that are less fortunate or are just simply incapable of taking care of themselves.” As Discovery in Service moves into its 45th year, the class continues to draw a full group of students each semester who may not fully understand what they are getting into, but who will be profoundly changed for the better by their experience.

Dominic Gierczyk '18, enjoys a game of UNO with students at SPEED Specialized Education Joint Agreement, an educational cooperative of 15 local school districts that provides program and support services for individuals with disabilities ages 3-21.

Fall Athletics

CROSS COUNTRY Consistency is certainly the hallmark of any successful athletic program. It is a defining characteristic of Marian Catholic’s Cross Country program, which celebrated its 25th anniversary this fall. Although Cross Country made an appearance in the 1960s under Athletic Department Legend Mike Goldrick, Coach Tim Sovereign has guided the program the last quarter century. Under Sovereign’s leadership, the Spartans have won seven IHSA girls regional crowns, sent boys teams to the sectional level on 17 occasions, and had runners make IHSA state finals 10 times. “Tim Sovereign has provided the Marian Catholic cross country program with amazing consistency, and consequently, he’s gained tremendous respect throughout the South Suburbs, the East Suburban Catholic Conference, and the cross country community statewide,” Marian Catholic Athletic Director Kevin Kelly said. “Hundreds

12 MARIAN MATTERS WINTER 2018

of Marian Catholic athletes have enjoyed his discipline, expertise, and guidance for a quarter century.” Marian Catholic's success continued this fall, as sophomore Samantha Barrett earned a repeat visit to the IHSA state meet in Peoria. Posting two of her season-best times in the postseason, Barrett was the top individual qualifier at the Wheaton Academy Class 2A sectional and finished in 68th place at the state meet. A huge hockey and Minnesota Vikings fan, Sovereign also coaches track at Marian Catholic and is quick to share credit for the Spartans’ success. “Over the years Marian Catholic has been blessed with some dedicated and hardworking assistant coaches,” praised Sovereign. “Heather Williams (from 2002 to 2014); Kathleen Mesterharm '01 (2013-2014), and our current assistants LaVon Burks and Cari Mills.” This season, with a roster of 15 girls and 14 boys, the program took home two fourth-place trophies from the Southland Prep Invitational. Other highlights include a fourth-place finish out of 12 teams for the girls at the Illiana Christian Invitational and a fifth-place finish out of 11 for the boys. The Varsity

Girls followed up their success at Illiana with a fourth out of 15 finish at the Rich East Invitational as Grace Rado '20 placed second and Samantha Samantha Barrett '20 Barrett fourth. While participation has waned in recent years, Marian Catholic still gains its share of individual and team success with a competitive schedule. Though they enjoyed celebrating the anniversary year, Sovereign and the “harriers” look forward to kicking off another successful quarter century. “The highlight of the season occurred on October 6 when the team was honored by the entire school at the homecoming assembly,” a gleaming Sovereign recalled. “During the assembly each member of the team, as well as the coaches, received a special commemorative 25th Anniversary jacket. Later that night, the team was honored at the varsity football game at midfield with a brief ceremony. Cross country alumni from past seasons were in attendance.”


VOLLEYBALL The Spartan women’s volleyball squad had a tough act to follow after winning the IHSA 3A state crown in 2016, but Marian Catholic responded in impressive fashion. The Spartans finished 30-8 for the seventh 30-win campaign in school history, and captured their third straight IHSA Regional title. The Spartans also won the prestigious Rich East Invite title and a repeat championship at Lincoln-Way Central. They were only derailed in the postseason by ESCC rival and eventual state champion Marist High School. Seniors on the team proudly capped off a four-year stretch that featured 101 total varsity wins!

WOMEN’S TENNIS

In women’s tennis, a second-place team finish in the Marian Catholic IHSA Sectional was also followed up by state tourney exploits. Signaling an outstanding future, the Spartans were represented in the IHSA Class 1A state tourney by freshman Taylor Trojan.

MEN’S GOLF

Men’s golf capped off an impressive campaign, as Marian Catholic sent two of its seniors to the IHSA State Tournament. After helping lead the Spartans to a second-place finish in the Marian Catholic IHSA Regional at Lincoln Oaks Golf Course, Todd Gervase captured a 58th-place IHSA Class 2A finish and Alec Thompson earned a tie for 76th place overall.

FENCING

Junior Kevin Ham, from Dyer, Ind., will be among the over 2,000 athletes competing at the 2018 Junior Olympic Fencing Championships in Memphis, Tenn. February 14-19. A member of Marian Catholic’s Fencing Team and the Northwest Indiana Fencing Club, Kevin is ready for the challenge, having competed in sabre events since 2013. His commitment to the sport and experience as a two-time team MVP for Marian Catholic will serve him well!

The Fine Arts continue to thrive at Marian Catholic, showcasing student talents with a variety of performances and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

MARCHING BAND

The Marian Catholic Marching Band certainly made a name for themselves in the city of Chicago this fall! On August 26, the band played the Imperial March as they paraded onto Guaranteed Rate Field at the White Sox game with costumed Star Wars enthusiasts. The band then played the National Anthem on the field in front of nearly 1,400 Marian Catholic students, alumni, faculty, friends, and family members. The unique experience opened the door to an opportunity for the band to perform during halftime of the Chicago Bears Monday Night Football Game on October 9 at Soldier Field. Continuing their competitive success, the band won its 38th consecutive Class Championship at the State of Illinois Invitational High School Marching Band Contest as well as the Class AA Championship at Bands of America Grand Nationals.

The increasing cost of private education can challenge even the most dedicated, hard-working families. Established in the spring of 2017, Marian Catholic’s Work Study Program endeavors to make Catholic education more affordable by providing students with positive, entry-level summer work experiences at local businesses that will allow them to earn a portion of their tuition. Marian Catholic is committed to preparing its students for success, both in high school and after graduation. A rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum, along with a comprehensive, four-year leadership program, enables students to develop the skills necessary to excel as both scholars and professionals including written and verbal communication skills, collaboration, decision making, and a strong work ethic. The Marian Catholic Work Study Program offers students the opportunity to refine those skills in a real world setting. Marian Catholic’s Work Study Program pairs exceptional students who are in need of tuition assistance with local businesses from June-August each year. Students work in an entry-level position eight hours a day, five days a week, for six weeks, or a total of 240 hours. In exchange, the business partner pays $3,000, which is applied directly to the student’s tuition, having an immediate impact on the student and their family.


“ I’ve definitely grown more since being here. I’ve been pushed to be more responsible about important things, to set goals for the future. They’re like my second family.” Kayla Schassburger '18

“ When we signed up for Marian Catholic’s work study program, we were looking for someone with a good attitude and consistent attendance. We were fortunate to be paired with someone who made the commitment and never let us down. Having someone here who is willing to do anything, to be so flexible, has been a real benefit for us.” Jennifer Uhrick, Caribbean Pools, Inc.

“I liked that the program gave me the opportunity to help my mom with tuition. It made me want to work harder.” Isaac Ortez-Garcia '20

“It’s good to involve local people, to help build community. You have to start at a young age.” John Benish '84, Kickert School Bus Line, Inc.

Students are qualified to work in a number of industries including technology, real estate, medical and law offices, insurance, and logistics, and are well prepared to assume responsibility for a variety of tasks such as answering telephones, maintaining files, and data entry. For businesses, the work study program offers a cost-effective alternative to a full-time employee by saving time on paperwork and saving money on taxes, health benefits, and other employmentrelated expenditures. Participation in Marian Catholic’s Work Study Program offers businesses access to responsible, respectful, reliable employees. Partners in the program also benefit from visibility throughout the community, as well as advertising and recognition on the Marian Catholic campus. In the workplace, mentoring opportunities allow company employees to foster meaningful relationships with students that further their own professional growth and development.

Students participating in the program have the opportunity to develop marketable business and workplace skills, preparing them for college and the professional world. They are also able to strengthen their interpersonal skills and begin to create a network of business and professional contacts. For Isaac Ortez-Garcia '20, there is another benefit; a sense of pride knowing he is contributing toward his tuition. “I liked that the program gave me the opportunity to help my mom with tuition. It made me want to work harder.” To learn more about Marian Catholic’s Work Study Program, please contact: Michelle Brown Executive Administrative Assistant Marian Catholic High School (708) 996-4634/mbrown@marianchs.com

SPARTAN ACADEMY Surrounded by LEGOs, Hot Wheels, and robotics kits in Marian Catholic’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Lab, Mike Jones '97 admits he is a kid at heart. And that he loves science. Both are essential to his role as Marian Catholic’s Director of Innovation and STEM Education. Jones’s involvement with the program began six years ago, the result of the growing interest in STEM education and the importance of engaging students in STEM related topics at an early age. Sharing Marian Catholic’s educational programs with younger students in the community seemed a natural extension of the school’s mission. By the 2013-14 school year, Marian Catholic had partnered with Northwestern University to offer weekend classes for elementary and middle school students. Two years later, under Jones’s leadership, Marian Catholic began offering its own weekend classes in business, veterinary science, and LEGO® robotics. Sixty students enrolled the first semester with the number increasing to 150 students the second semester. The stage was set for Spartan Academy.

Spartan Academy offers STEM focused classes for grades 1-8 throughout the school year, including evening and weekend classes during the fall and spring semesters and a seven-week summer camp. During the summer program, students explore a different STEM topic each week in addition to meeting STEM professionals and taking field trips. In its first year of operation in the summer of 2016, Spartan Academy recorded over 350 one-week registrations. Over 40% of the students returned for summer 2017 with registrations topping at 375 participants from 25 zip codes in Illinois and Indiana. This fall, Spartan Academy hosted Tinker Tuesdays in Marian Catholic’s STEM lab to give students in grades 4-8 the opportunity to make, learn, explore, and share ideas in a collaborative workspace. Each week featured a demonstration of tools and techniques used in material design after which students were free to create their own project. For Jones, “to see the curiosity, to see the students actually figure something out is the best part” of his job. During its evolution, the goals of Marian Catholic’s K-8 STEM Program have stayed the same: to get youth involved in science and to keep them motivated and interested in science throughout their education. With employment in occupations related to STEM projected to grow more than 9 million between 2012 and 2022, Spartan Academy helps ensure students are better prepared for the future. Spartan Academy Summer Camp 2018 will take place from June 12 thru August 3. Past themes have included the great outdoors, microorganisms, film, robotics, and the science of golf. Families interested in giving their children hands-on, practical experience in STEM can find registration information at marianchs.com/Spartan-academy.php. Specific questions can be directed to Mike Jones, Director of Innovation and STEM Education at (708) 996-4636 or mjones@marianchs.com.

Chet Marshall Joins Marian Catholic Advancement Team

“I am bolstered by the pride, the history, and the legacy of the families of Marian Catholic High School.”

Q&A with Marian Catholic’s new Principle Gifts Officer: Q / Welcome to Marian Catholic! Tell us a little about your background. How did you get into fundraising? A / I attended Appalachian State University for three years before finishing my degree at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis where I had planned to enroll in medical school. Some mentors

suggested I move into business/ sales—I worked in the printing and marketing business for 20+ years where I completed many projects for charities. After I sold my business in the late 1990’s, I had the opportunity to help educational institutions raise money full-time, which I have done for the past 15 years. It is a nod to my parents and ancestors, many of whom were long-serving educators. Q / Exactly what is a Principle Gifts Officer? A / A Principle Gifts Officer is responsible for meeting with current and potential donors, inviting gifts to the Marian Fund, and assisting donors with any type of planned giving—bequests, life insurance, annuities, real estate, etc.— that they might wish to leave to Marian Catholic. Q / Who have you helped in the past? A / I worked for Culver Academies for nine years, during which time we set the all-time record in America’s history for a secondary school

fund-raising campaign, raising $376 million dollars. I then moved to Valparaiso University for the last five and one half years where we raised $160 million. Q / Those are impressive numbers! What do you hope to do at Marian Catholic? A / I am bolstered by the pride, the history, and the legacy of the families of Marian Catholic High School. Based on that though, I am surprised that the numbers show only 7% of alumni gave back to the Marian Fund last year. The best private school graduates, faculty, staff, and parents all know that to maintain excellence—attracting the best students, attracting and retaining the best teachers, and having and supporting programs of distinction takes money. In today’s world, tuition alone does not suffice. And, unless you have an $11-billion-dollar endowment like Notre Dame, institutions need regular, on-going contributions at all levels on a yearly basis while, at the same time, continuing to build the existing endowment.

Q / What can members of the Marian Catholic community do to help? A / Give every year to the Marian Fund at any level you can afford. Participation is paramount. I have made two somewhat small gifts to Marian Catholic in my short time here. My small total should not exceed the lifetime giving of 64% of the alumni! Remember what this school did for you and your peers—how it shaped you and other students—the Sisters and teachers—the friends made—the life-lessons of honor, civility, faith, focus—and know that for us to continue to educate the next generation and the next generation it takes all of our support each and every year. I am happy to talk to anyone who has questions about giving or is interested in making a gift to Marian Catholic.

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT: Nicole Lopez '04 By Josh Ladner, Contributing Writer

W

hile most college graduates seek full-time employment and begin a 40 hour-per-week lifestyle, Nicole Lopez '04 chose to join the military. After graduating from Marian Catholic, Nicole attended Michigan Tech University where she earned a bachelor of science degree in Psychology with minors in Spanish and Military Science. Upon graduating from Michigan Tech in 2008, Nicole enlisted and went on active duty with the United States Army as a 2nd Lieutenant with the Military Police Core. Her first assignment was at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba where she spent a year serving as a Military Police Officer at a maximum and medium security detention facility. As a platoon leader at Guantanamo Bay, Nicole was in charge of about 50 soldiers and served as an Assistant Officer in Charge (AOIC). Nicole was then assigned to Fort Carson in Colorado where she was a member of a military police unit for three years. While at Fort Carson, Nicole deployed to Baghdad, Iraq in 2011 as an Executive Officer for a military police company. In Iraq, Nicole and her company of about 170 soldiers were responsible for closing the last American-controlled detention facility in Baghdad.

1995

Katherine Grosh '95 became a Partner at Levin Ginsburg in its Litigation Practice Group. Katherine is a graduate of the University of Illinois ( J.D., 2002) and the University of Michigan, with distinction, (B.A., Psychology, 1999). High school sweethearts Joleen Simonetti '95 and Eric Burnett were married in November at Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Ill., surrounded by family and friends including Traci Slowinski '94 (Matron of Honor) and Jimmy Rhodes '93 (Best Man). The Burnetts reside in Frankfort, Ill.

1999

After a brief return home in 2012, Nicole deployed again as a Cultural Support Team Leader with a special operations task force in Afghanistan. It is considered culturally inappropriate for a male to talk or touch a female in Afghanistan, so Nicole’s primary task was to search and question women and children. The task force would conduct night raids in Eastern Afghanistan, so Nicole would work directly with the women and children during the raids, which she proclaimed as “probably the coolest thing she’s ever done.” In 2013, Nicole left active duty, moved to Minnesota where she became a federal employee working for the department of the Army, and joined the Army Reserves. Employed as a Civil Affairs Team Leader, Nicole and her team would work with the local populous providing a variety of services including finding books for schools or working with other organizations to help build schools. In 2015, Nicole worked part-time as an instructor for the University of Minnesota’s ROTC program. After about a year, she left the University of Minnesota to become a Company Commander in Davenport, Iowa. There, Nicole was responsible for a military police company consisting of 169 soldiers overseeing the training, administration, and welfare of the company, ensuring they are ready for deployment at any time. More recently, Lopez transferred to Fort Wayne, Ind. to work as an Executive Officer for a military police battalion made up of multiple military police companies. Although Nicole continues to spend one weekend per month and two weeks per year in Fort Wayne, she now calls Detroit home where she works in Federal Law Enforcement.

Josh Torres '99 joined Franklin College in Franklin, Ind., as a Lecturer of Music. Prior to teaching at Franklin, Josh served as the Director of Percussion at Center Grove High School in Greenwood, Ind., one of the most respected high school percussion programs in the country and a consistent WGI Scholastic World Finalist and a four-time medalist. In 2012, Josh served as the coordinator for the Super Bowl XLVI Drumline which performed the National Anthem with Kelly Clarkson and the Halftime Show with Madonna to over 113 million viewers. He has also served as the director of the Indianapolis Colts (NFL) Drumline and organized drumline performances for the Dallas Stars (NHL.) In his spare time, Josh enjoys spending time with his family: two sons, Cameron and Alden, and wife, Audrey, who is the head band director at Franklin Central High School.

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT:

Kyle Schassburger '07 By Josh Ladner, Contributing Writer The journey from Marian Catholic to the present has been filled with unexpected trials for Kyle Schassburger '07, but it seems things are falling into place. Kyle was recently selected as the new studio host/producer for Duke football and basketball on the Duke IMG Sports Network as well as being named the Operations Manager for Curtis Media Group in Winston-Salem/Greensboro/High Point, N.C. While attending Western Illinois University, where he earned a degree in Broadcasting and a minor in Coaching, Kyle gained early exposure to the broadcasting world working for the TV and radio stations at Western, covering both news and sports. The experience led him to his first job after school in Galesburg, Ill. as a news anchor and reporter for radio station WGIL-AM 1400, part of the Galesburg Broadcasting Group, named the Illinois 2011 Small Market Radio Station of the Year. Just two weeks into the job, former President Barack Obama made a surprise stop at Galesburg High School and Kyle was assigned to deliver live updates from the event. Kyle described the opportunity as being “pretty gratifying, being as new as I was.” As a result of his reporting, Kyle received an Associated Press Best Spot News Story Award in 2012. After working for WGIL for a year, Kyle decided he wanted to pursue a job in sports, his true passion. IMG College in Winston-Salem, N.C., the largest collegiate sports marketing company in the country, had an opening for a studio host producer and Kyle managed to land a part-time

role. It wasn’t too long before Kyle met his fiancé and was “forced to grow up pretty fast.” Kyle’s fiancé was originally from Louisiana and she was extremely homesick while in North Carolina. Following his heart, Kyle left Winston-Salem in August 2014 for Baton Rouge where he lived for two years. Working for Cumulus Media, Kyle did everything he could to be on-air, especially when it came to covering sports. In August 2016, prolonged rainfall in the southern part of Louisiana caused catastrophic flooding and a state of emergency. Kyle and his family lost close to 80 percent of everything they had in the flood and decided to make the move back to North Carolina. Still having connections at IMG, Kyle was able to get hired on again in a part-time capacity. Later, when his boss received a promotion, Kyle was hand-selected to be the studio host producer for Duke Football and Duke Basketball in a seasonal role. In addition to being a part of the Duke Football and Duke Basketball broadcasts, Kyle has a full-time job as a Radio Host & Operations Manager/Program Director at Curtis Media Group in the Greensboro/Winston-Salem/ High Point, N.C. area, also known as the Piedmont Triad. Kyle now has his own sports talk show titled ‘One on One with The Schass’ weekdays from 3-6 p.m. on WSJS & ESPN Radio in the Triad. Kyle’s favorite memory from Marian Catholic is the Kairos retreat, clearly a defining moment for him. Even though Kyle lost almost everything in the flood, he was able to salvage his Kairos cross and the letters he received during the experience, treasured mementos that continue to guide his journey.

Financial Summary

Dear Alumni and Friends of Marian Catholic, The beginning of a new calendar year is a time for reflection. Reflection on the achievements of the past year, reflection on individual growth, and most importantly, reflection on the many blessings that God has bestowed on each of us. As we compiled this list of names, we paused to reflect on the many blessings that God has presented Marian Catholic in the way of our benefactors, the guardian angels called to protect and advance the mission of Marian Catholic High School. The following list of benefactors is one of the reasons we are hopeful that Catholic education will remain a strong option for all who desire it. These gifts allow our faculty and staff to enrich the minds, bodies, and spirits of our students with a Marian Catholic education that earned recognition as a 2017 Best of Chicago’s Southland Private School according to the Daily Southtown. Over two-thirds of the families that have made the decision to give the gift of a Marian Catholic education have difficulty meeting the financial investment of the full cost of tuition and continually call on us for assistance. These benefactors have answered that call. Marian Catholic remains committed to providing the highest caliber education available. Your support makes that possible. For all of the individuals and organizations whose name appears on this list, thank you for your enduring support of Marian Catholic High School and our Scholars with a Soul. May the New Year bring you peace and abundant blessings! In the Spirit of St. Dominic,

Dan Kozlowski Vice President for Advancement

I was surprised to see only 7% of alumni contribute to the Marian Fund; and then it dawned on me that I don’t contribute. When I reflect on what has made me so successful in my career, from being the first person in my family to go to college to being a partner in one of the world’s largest accounting firms, I am reminded of the education and discipline I received at Marian Catholic. –Tiffany Switalski '90
