A Letter from the President Dear Mariners, The season of Thanksgiving, leading towards Christmas and New Year’s Eve, gives me time to reflect on how quickly another year has passed. Before we know it, it will be 2018, and those seniors who wear that number on their jackets and shirts can finally claim the year of their impending graduation, and all the joys and fears that go along with that! This issue of The Vector is our annual report, where we acknowledge and thank so many wonderful donors and supporters of our Holy Cross educational mission—educating minds and forming hearts. The generosity of our alumni, alumni parents, current parents, students, and community members allow us to provide innovative, personalized Kathleen Radecke ’85, Terry Lee and Lisa learning experiences and outstanding leadership and co-curricular Tortorich at Our Lady of Sorrows Mass, activities for our students. The donation of time in volunteering, in-kind September 15. donations for auctions, and expertise on planning committees are just some of the examples where our community gives back to Moreau Catholic. We are deeply grateful for all that we receive! I hope you enjoy the stories inside this issue about our alumni, our innovative programs, our students and their achievements, our staff members, and our special events. We would love for you to be inspired by these stories and photographs, and in turn consider getting more involved in the life of our school. We welcome your participation and presence at events, and would love to hear your story...how did Moreau make a difference in your life? Finally, from all of us here at Moreau, we wish you and your family a very blessed Christmas season, and a happy and healthy new year. Thank you for all you do for Moreau Catholic High School, and we hope to see you in 2018! Best wishes,
Terry Lee President

Parents are Choosing Moreau as a Compassionate College Prep Catholic High School This Fall, Moreau launched a digital marketing campaign and revised its logo with a new tagline “Compassionate College Prep” ‒ all part of our strategic marketing and branding efforts. “We hired Gumas Marketing of San Francisco, a nationally recognized and award-winning agency, that focuses on strategic branding, advertising and digital marketing,” Moreau President Terry Lee said. “They interviewed parents, students, faculty and staff this summer and developed our impactful messaging and marketing strategy. “Through their research and interviews, Gumas learned the essence of Moreau’s brand personality and attributes and developed a messaging strategy and tagline unique to Moreau,” Lee added. Digital Google and Facebook ads are highlighting Moreau as a “Compassionate College Prep” high school with a call to action to “Become a Mariner,” where interested parents searching the internet can learn more about Moreau’s innovative academics and transformational educators. New street banners in front of the school on Mission Boulevard and campus banners focus on how Moreau is inclusive, innovative, personalized and creates game changers. Social media exposure has been expanded as well. Additionally, a new mobile app features athletics and student events, a daily dining menu, e-news, alumni and admissions information, a button to donate to Moreau and more. The mobile app can be downloaded through the App Store for iPhones and through Google Play for Android phones. Search for Moreau Catholic High School. To date, nearly 2,400 people have downloaded the phone app. “We have already seen an increase in web traffic and inquiries about Moreau through our Admissions Office and expect that to continue,” Lee said.

Kathleen Radecke ’85
SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS, DIOCESE OF OAKLAND Kathleen Radecke knew in the second grade that she wanted to be a teacher in a Catholic school. “Suzy Blankenship was my teacher and I wanted to be just like her. My mother (Mrs. Gladys Radecke) was the principal of Saint Clement School at the time, and I remember her walking down the hall with her big ring of keys, greeting students at the gate each morning, and I just knew what I wanted to do as an adult,” she recalls. Throughout her schooling, she continued to have teachers like Ms. Blankenship and mentors who influenced her decision to make Catholic education her life’s work, eventually leading to her current position as Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Oakland, which she started in July of this year. For her Confirmation, she took the name of Bernadette as a tribute to both the Saint and her former Saint Clement School teacher, Bernie Brehm, who was another teacher she wanted to emulate. Now-retired Bishop John Cummins, who performed her Confirmation ceremony, was a friend and mentor of hers for many years. While at Moreau (graduating class of 1985), she has fond memories of teachers Mrs. Kathy Kyle in Biology, Mrs. Yolanda Moran in Spanish, and Mr. Phil Wilder in Social Studies. Outside of class, she played basketball for four years and swam on the newly-formed Moreau swimming team. “Teachers cared about you and challenged you at the same time. They cared deeply. And, they were good at what they did,” Radecke said. “I was shy, and my teachers gave me confidence,” she recalls. “And, now when I come back and see those teachers, they tell me how proud they are of me and what I have done. I tell them how grateful I am for everything they gave me. “Never for a moment did I think of teaching anywhere else but a Catholic school; it is at the core of who I am,” she added. Her connection to Holy Cross is equally an important part of her spirituality and outlook on education. While studying at California State University, Hayward, she was hired by Moreau as the JV swim coach, working with her former head coach Rich Serrao ‘73. “Coaching was my first exposure to teaching. Being able to put my experience and passion into helping the team was exciting and empowering,” she said. Continued on next page

Her first Catholic teaching position was as a second grade teacher at Holy Spirit School in Fremont. “I remember my classroom, the bright colors of yellow and orange, and I had all these plans for the kids. All 40 of them! We loved to sing, and do word webs with yarn. I wanted them to feel loved, cherished, and safe,” she recalls. Jim Brennan, former principal of Holy Spirit School in Fremont, saw Radecke as a future administrator and encouraged her to join the Institute for Catholic Educational Leadership Program at the University of San Francisco (USF). Others, like her religion teacher Father Edward McDermott, taught her about the history of the Catholic Church. Sister Mary Peter Traviss, OP empowered and transformed her into a leader. Radecke taught at Saint Philip Neri School in Alameda after receiving her Master’s degree in Educational Leadership at USF. A few years later, she was appointed principal at Saint Perpetua School in Lafayette. After five years as a principal, she was appointed Assistant Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Oakland. Her portfolio included Catholic identity and accreditation as a commissioner with the Western Catholic Education Association. “It was a wonderful experience to support my (former) fellow principals and Catholic school teachers on the diocesan level,” Radecke recalls. “It gave me the confidence to be a superintendent, and the opportunity to lead Catholic education in the Diocese of Monterey was a joy and chance to bring all of my experience together in ministry, education, and leadership,” referring to her move from Oakland to Monterey in 2011. When the tragic 2015 Valley Fire in Napa County took the home of her parents, she decided to leave the Monterey Diocese to spend more time with her parents...help them relocate and adjust to their new surroundings and their new routine. Soon afterwards, that path led her back to Oakland and to her appointment as Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Oakland. Her vision for Catholic education in Oakland, she says, includes walking humbly with Christ and taking care of the students, in big bodies and little bodies. She sees our Catholic elementary schools filled to capacity because they are faith-filled and academically rigorous and personalized. She wants to inspire more people to choose to teach and to lead our Catholic schools. And, based on her energy, devotion, and passion, there is no doubt that she will make it all happen.
Moreau Hosts Junior High Leadership Summit Moreau Catholic High School hosted its inaugural Junior High Leadership Summit in June 2017. The summit, for seventh grade students, focused on skills development essential for being effective leaders. Students attended from All Saints School, Assumption Catholic School, Our Lady of Grace Catholic School, Saint Clement Catholic School, St. Bede Catholic School, St. Edward School, St. Elizabeth Catholic Elementary School, St. Joachim School and St. Joseph School. Designed for the “difference makers” of tomorrow, the Junior High Leadership Summit encouraged students to become innovative in the way they see and interact with the world around them.
Some attendees from this summer’s Leadership Summit.
Students participated in workshops where they received concrete, hands-on experience in critical thinking, problem solving and advocacy. Students were mentored by Moreau’s student leaders and academic administrators, and developed action plans to implement into their communities. “These three engaging, collaborative and inspiring days provided students with the confidence to go out and change the future,” Admissions Director Julia Wang said. Moreau looks forward to expanding the number of schools and students participating next summer, she added. Fall 2017 7
DesignThink+ SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR CATHOLIC THOUGHT LEADERS While summer may mean sunshine, beaches and vacation for students and teachers, in June innovative teachers and administrators were engaged in four-day training on Design Think — what it is, how to implement it, and how to teach students how to use it to problem solve. A group of almost 40 teachers and administrators from Moreau Catholic, local schools and some as far away as Connecticut, learned the Design Think process to help enact positive change at their school. Simply put, Design Think is shorthand for problem solving driven by user empathy, team brainstorming, and prototyping. Different training exercises were used to reinforce the Design Think principles, For example, one exercise focused on how to improve Back to School Night for fictional schools for which the attendees would be in charge. Each day, groups would go through the process of Design Think, which consists of five stages: Empathize, Define (the problem), Ideate, Prototype and Test.
Dr. S. Craig Watkins, Professor of RadioTelevision-Film at the University of Texas, Austin, speaks to educators at Moreau.
With input from parent volunteers from the Moreau community, the groups were able to build empathy with a group of people who had experience with Back to School Nights. Using the information they gained, the conference attendees developed ideas related to Back to School Night, built prototypes out of a variety of materials, and began to test them. After refining their ideas and building off of feedback from their peers, they ultimately produced prototypes that they presented on the final day, before reflecting on the Design Think process as a whole. Training facilitator and Principal Lisa Tortorich helped bring the event to Moreau after attending a Design Think workshop focused on school reform and improvement. “Design Think encourages the entrepreneurial spirit of exploring change and opportunities,” Tortorich explained. “There are intentional and specific steps in the Design Think process and we have experienced the successful implementation of that at our school, so we decided to develop a forum by which we could share these ideas with our colleagues at Moreau and beyond,” she added.
Conference participants pose for a souvenir photo.
One of the highlights of the week was a special guest speaker, Craig Watkins, an author and teacher at the University of Texas, Austin. He talked about why design thinking is so important in helping students realize their potential and in allowing schools to change in positive ways — to become more student centered. Tortorich added that it was important to recognize that the title of the institute was Design Think+ with the “+” representing our goal of integrating the principles of Catholic mission into our Design Think process training. “We are developing a new generation of Catholic thought leaders who are addressing the changing needs of our students and educating the game changers for the future.” she said “Understanding how to leverage innovation and Catholic values was the most transformational aspect of the institute.” Moreau Catholic 2017 8
Moreau Selected as TEDx Event Venue Moreau Catholic was recently granted a TEDx license for seniors to present their capstone projects as part of our social justice program. Capstone is an opportunity for students to showcase their passions and talents guided by Catholic social teaching and Holy Cross values. “Thanks to the diligence and vision of our social justice team, we are now licensed to host an official TEDx event for the first time on campus this spring,” Principal Lisa Tortorich said. “‘TEDxMoreauCatholicHS’ is designed as a youth-led conference highlighting innovative ideas formed from a culmination of the student’s four years in our social justice program.” This year’s theme is Holy Cross Advocates for Justice. The day-long event is scheduled for April 17 and will feature senior capstone projects, alumni speakers and teachers presenting their stories and ideas on becoming advocates for justice in the world. The event will be videotaped and uploaded to the TEDx talks YouTube channel, allowing global outreach for the students’ presentations. This is the first year for Moreau’s senior capstone projects, with about 260 students working in groups researching the social issue of concern to them and then practicing their TEDx-style talks on the TEDx stage located in Moreau’s new Incubator Space.
Teachers Bryan Lorentz and Mary McInerney, in the new Incubator Space.
“There is a great deal of work training students throughout the whole process, from lighting, sound, filming and speaking,” Tortorich said. A select number of students then will be selected to give their capstone presentations, and others will present to the junior class to inspire them for their senior capstone projects next year. “We hope to build a culture of social entrepreneurship informed by Catholic social teaching then present that on stage,” said social justice teacher Bryan Lorentz. Some projects that students are currently working on include bringing virtual reality technology to residents at a senior center as a novel way to encourage physical activity, recreation and relaxation. Another focuses on an app to help smaller non-profits and Catholic charities get more visibility and improve their online traffic. “We want our students to see these senior projects in action, be inspired to take up the great work left by their forerunners, and carry the Holy Cross torch out into the world,” Lorentz said.
MoreauCatholicHS TED, Technology, Entertainment, and Design, is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less), delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available free on TED.com. Pope Francis has given a TED talk from Vatican City on “Why the Only Future Worth Building Includes Everyone.” A TEDx event is a local, independently organized TED-style event. Its goal is to spark conversation, connection and community. A popular TEDx talk was from Simon Sinek on “How Great Leaders Inspire Action.”

International Student Program Since 2009, we have welcomed students from different countries to study for four years and graduate from Moreau. This year, 61 international students representing Vietnam and China can be found on campus. Moreau faculty, staff and families welcome the students into their home as host families. Two students, junior Renkang “Ken” Chen and senior Shijia “Alexia” Chen shared their experiences, as well as Laura Zaro, a host parent of a Moreau alumnus, alumni parent and cross country coach.

backgrounds make finding common topics and interests challenging, especially for someone a little nerdy and into drones and aerodynamics like me.
How did you choose to study here? I always looked up to the education environment outside of China. So, I brought it up to my parents one day that I want to study abroad where the curve of study difficulty and stress is more suited to the growth curve of human brain capabilities, and they gave their support — so here I am.
What have you been involved with at Moreau? I am on the varsity tennis team. I took visual arts and drawing and do aerial videography outside of school. I have Moreau Hangar, my own club about model aviation, and I joined the Photography Club. I just joined the math team that competes in HiMCM (High School Mathematical Contest of Modelling). And, I am part of student government and the ISP program.
What do you like most and least about the U.S.? I like that things are much more open and transparent. For instance, here people don’t get blocked from the very resourceful Google and uncensored social media; people are granted more rights and treated with respect. What I like least is probably those superstitious people that yell at me when I fly drones in a totally empty park just because the park is in front of their house. What do you miss most about your home country? Definitely the cheap transportation. Seriously, in China an 8-mile taxi ride costs 5 USD; riding 20 stations in a metro/subway costs 2 USD; and average fare for a bus is 0.3 USD. And, of course, I miss my relatives and my very best friends. What has been the most academically challenging portion of your immersion experience in the U.S.? APUSH (AP U.S. History) and Honors English 11. Though my English is good enough to disguise me as a native speaker (students didn’t know I was from China unless I mentioned it), I am a little overwhelmed by massive
loads of critical reading, writing and understanding. What do you remember most about your freshman year? Freshman year was really about adapting and learning to build up confidence. Looking back, I barely made any friends. I don’t even know why I didn’t go ahead and take steps toward building up my social circle and participating in events, despite the super warm community and my being completely capable. Had I taken those steps, school life would definitely have been much more fun.
What are your goals after you leave Moreau? Naturally, from my hobbies, interests, and passion, I want to be an aeronautical engineer and designer, as well as a FPV (First Person View) drone pilot. I am considering a career as a teacher, as I found myself good at explaining and instructing. Maybe one day I would return here and start an AP Physics II class or a class that deals with drones and remote control models.
What have been some of the highlights of your experience here? Many greet me by my full name, Ken Chen, every day and it feels wonderful. Also, the casual dances, which have a great atmosphere and felt phenomenal to hang out at, enjoy music, and see people show their moves. Student government because it fills me with awe to meet great people with prominent skills that stimulate growth from me.
Shijia “Alexia” Chen ’18
What other facets of your Moreau experience have been challenging? Probably hanging out with domestic students. The very different cultural
What do you like most and least about the U.S.? What I like most is the diversity. There are people from different backgrounds
Moreau Catholic 2017 10
How did you choose to study here? I came to the U.S. because my aunt came to the U.S. for college. She told me the life here as a student is fun and fruitful. Thus, I’ve been curious about the U.S. since I was a child.
getting along in this melting pot. It is amazing! What I like least is the Chinese food. It is not that the food does not taste good, it is just not authentic. What do you miss most about your home country? Food! My parents sent me pictures of their dinner table. Those pictures make me want to book a flight and just go home for food right away. What has been the most academically challenging portion of your immersion experience in the U.S.? Speaking has been the biggest challenge. When I just came here, I could hardly express what I wanted to say. I stuttered sometimes…and I was scared to talk. But, I kept telling myself nothing was born to be perfect. I kept practicing. Now, I still have an accent, but I’m much more confident to speak. What do you remember most about your freshman year? When I came here as a freshman, everything was so new to me. In China, students stand up when answering questions in class. It took me weeks to get used to remain sitting when answering questions. I want to say it is really an amazing experience to get to know a whole different culture. What have been some of the highlights of your experience here? Health Nuts Club. I started this club with Nia Isom last year, and I’m so happy that we got to know a lot of people also interested in health through club activities. What other facets of your Moreau
experience have been challenging? Organizing club activities requires a lot of planning. But thanks to my wonderful officers and Ms. Armstrong, (Amy Armstrong), we worked together through all the difficulties. What have you been involved with at Moreau? I was in chamber choir and string orchestra in my sophomore year. And, I am president of the Health Nuts Club and president of the ISP Leadership Council this year. What are your goals after you leave Moreau? I am planning on attending college and majoring in food science.
in China, I was able to meet the families of three of my host sons. Also, I feel blessed for the opportunity to help raise some wonderful human beings What has been the most challenging part of your hosting experience? The very first student I hosted had a very low level of English. I had to do a lot of work with him on his English language skills (luckily, I am an ESL teacher). Moreau has raised the entrance standard since then so that is no longer a problem. Perhaps the
Laura Zaro How many years have you been a host family? This is my eighth year as a host family and I have hosted five students from China. I also hosted French students. The first time I was a host family, my son was at Moreau. Even though he wasn’t taking French, it was a fun experience for us all. The second time was when I had my second student from China who was studying French. Why did you decide to host an international student? Originally, I thought it would be a good experience for my son. Also, I was once an international student and wanted to give the same wonderful experience I had to someone from another country. Unfortunately, the program did not actually begin until the year my son graduated, but hosting a student kept me from the despairs of empty nest syndrome! What do you like most about being a host family? I love sharing our culture with the students and learning about theirs. Hosting these students motivated me to learn Chinese, and is indirectly responsible for me teaching English in China for the past four summers. While Fall 2017 11
biggest challenge now is meals. Each student comes with different likes and dislikes, which I discover little by little. Also, I try to avoid eating meat but all my students love meat, so I’ll sometimes prepare two dinners. What do the students miss most about their home country? Certain foods, friends back home...so far none of them have seemed to be homesick. What do the students like the most and the least about the U.S.? Most of them like the fact that they don’t have the pressure of the high school to college test that their friends back home must take. This is the most important test of their lives and will determine their college major and the school they will attend. They like the freedom and opportunities here. I seldom get complaints. They seem to relish their stay here.

Wenschel Lan ’02 ALUMNA GIVES BACK TO HER ALMA MATER Each year at this time, The Vector publishes its annual report to highlight the extraordinary contributions made to the school from a variety of fundraisers, scholarships, and events that happen throughout the year. The people who give to Moreau Catholic High School are often parents, business owners, or members of the local community who want to make a difference in the lives of our students. In addition to these wonderful donors, one group to which we are especially thankful are the Moreau Catholic alumni who give back to their alma mater. Alumni donors know from personal experience how much they gained from their time at Moreau. They are especially aware of how hard it can be for everyone to afford the cost of tuition or for programs to receive the funding required to be successful. One such alumna who has made it a point to give back to her school community, both financially and with her time, is Wenschel Lan, a graduate of the Class of 2002. “Overall, my experience at Moreau was awesome,” Lan said. “I feel like I learned a lot, not just academically, but also spiritually, even though I am not Catholic. So, I really appreciate the quality education I received in all aspects at Moreau. I think as alumni, you know firsthand what you got out of the school and you should have a pretty valid reason to want to give back.” As a student, Lan was a member of the band, so has designated her school donation to specifically benefit the kids that participate in that program. “There’s a lot of organizations and nonprofits out there that you could give to, but you don’t always know what it’s going to. For me, personally, I feel like I know what’s being done with the money I’m donating. When I give, I ask Mr. Newton (Music Director Ted Newton) if he needs anything for the year. For example, this year there’s an additional trip to Japan and some of the kids needed additional funds to be able to go, and I’m happy to help make that a reality.” The desire to give back and the willingness to contribute towards the success of the next generation is something Lan learned here at Moreau.
“Giving back isn’t always about money; it’s about time and interest as well. I think that the alumni who participate by volunteering with sports, mock trial, or other clubs are doing amazing things that are invaluable.”
“I really appreciated how the Catholic teachings were balanced with the opportunity to explore my own moral system and spirituality so that I could come to terms with what I’m comfortable with. I really like that Catholicism focuses on the social and global aspects of spirituality versus your own self-fulfillment. It’s much more communitybased, and now that I’m older, I really appreciate that because I think it gives students, especially at that age, a better sense of social responsibility and how your actions play into society in general.” Lan also understands that not everyone is able to donate financially, but there are other ways to help current students. In addition to being an active donor, she has visited the band class on campus to discuss how music has remained with her throughout her life, and about her career as an engineer.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND MEMORIAL GIFTS For over 50 years, Moreau Catholic has prepared students for the rigors of college and the complexities of life. Blessed Basil Moreau and Holy Cross educators are attributed with saying “we take students where they are” both in terms of their abilities and their needs. For this reason, Moreau Catholic High School offers both merit-based and need-based scholarships to students so that they may attain a Holy Cross college preparatory education. Given the increasing costs of education, mere money alone should not stand in the way of our students in achieving their goals and dreams.

Monica Heuer ATHLETIC DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS Moreau’s Athletic Department was restructured this Fall due to significant growth in our sports program over the past few years. Christine Krisman now handles communications and Monica Heuer is athletic director of operations, supervising all sports and event management as well as Booster Club operations. “I was ready for a new challenge,” Heuer said, about accepting the Moreau position. “The timing was perfect, and it seemed to be a good fit for me personally.” Heuer’s husband, Michael, works at Diablo Valley College and they have a 13-year-old son Alexander. She grew up locally and attended local schools. “I knew Moreau was a great school academically, and I learned that you had expanded your vision, including your athletic programs,” she said. “You have some incredible teachers who are providing innovative curriculum that’s preparing students to be accepted to colleges across the nation. The assortment of activities, clubs and athletic programs are phenomenal.” Heuer grew up in the Oakland and Berkeley area and attended Redwood Christian High School in San Leandro, where she was a sports standout in basketball and softball. She attended California State University, East Bay and played basketball for four years, while receiving a BA degree in physical education. She then received an MS degree in sports and fitness management from the University of San Francisco. “In high school, I learned the fundamental principle of working across differences, having the ability to embrace others regardless of socioeconomic background, race or religion,” Heuer said. “My parents provided me opportunities to develop my leadership skills and interest in sports. At a young age, they encouraged me to give my best and were true examples in showing me how to pursue and advocate for things that mattered to me,” she added. Prior to joining the Moreau staff in September, Heuer was the associate director of intercollegiate athletics at Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. She also had been head women’s basketball coach at Evergreen, and has been an assistant coach at the University of San Francisco, San Jose State University, Patten University, California State University, East Bay, and at Holy Names High School and Bishop O’Dowd High School earlier in her career. She looks forward to bringing her extensive experience as a college athletic director, and collegiate and high school athlete and coach to Moreau. “I see this role as a great way to impact the student athlete experience,” Heuer said. “I get to work with passionate and dedicated coaches who prepare and develop our students. I also have an opportunity to build bridges across campus when it comes to athletics and academics. “I also enjoy the energy amongst the students,” she added “and when I see them graduate and walk across that stage, that’s most satisfying.”

Isabella Socias ’18
Empowerment 2020 Initiative Senior Isabella “Bella” Socias wants to major in journalism in college. However, she was the news as a panelist at the recent Empowerment 2020 event in San Francisco, after her video on Amelia Earhart was chosen to be part of the “Super Women of our Past” YouTube channel. In March, Socias’ video along with 2017 graduate Kristen Benz’s video on Juliette Gordon Low were selected from tens of thousands of videos as part of a new YouTube channel. These two videos are part of the first 40 videos on historic American women whose impact has been significant and will be featured on the channel. In August, Socias was selected to serve as the student representative on the Empowerment 2020 panel that included Moreau Catholic history teacher Phil Wilder and was moderated by Vice Principal Katie Teekell. Socias’ video on Amelia Earhart was shown. In attendance were former U.S. Treasurer Rosie Rios ’83 (see box below), former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, Margo Georgiadis, CEO of Mattel, and women representatives from NASA, Pixar, Google, local colleges and more. Later, Socias was contacted by a staff person from the Hayward Unified School District who had seen her video at the conference. She told her how she was drawn to her video and equally passionate about women and history. “I wanted to create a stellar portrayal of how passionate Amelia was about aviation, and how she was breaking the norm of only men as pilots,” Socias said about her video. “So many women have gone unnoticed, have done so much and have had a lasting impact,” she added. “To many, Amelia was an inspiration, but the media also used her in their marketing strategy on cigarette boxes, magazine covers and on luggage — she also had her own clothing line. We still see that today in the media, so not much has changed.” “How special to be a high school junior (now a senior) and to have your film be selected in recognition of Super Women from our Past,” Phil Wilder said. While Amelia was an inspiration to women nearly 100 years ago, she is an inspiration to Socias today in her desire to be a journalist. “An aspiring journalist shouldn’t be afraid of what is out there, but is what drives her. We can’t be afraid of what we don’t see or nothing will be done about it.”
What is Empowerment 2020 and Teachers Righting History Initiative? The Empowerment 2020 initiative, launched by Moreau graduate and former U.S. Treasurer Rosie Rios ’83, looks at the role of women in education, leadership and government. Annual Empowerment 2020 conferences throughout the U.S. will be convened, leading up to the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote in 2020 and the historic effort by Rios to place a woman on U.S. currency for the first time. One of the core components of Empowerment 2020 is Teachers Righting History, where students incorporate historic American women in projects and teachers in their curriculum. Moreau was the first high school in the country to partner with the Teachers Righting History initiative and Bella Socias (see story above) created her video as part of teacher Katie Teekell’s mass media class. http://bit.ly/2Ano6Lx

Rahul Bharadwaj ’18 National Honors Choir
Since the seventh grade, Rahul Bharadwaj ’18 has been taking voice lessons, encouraged by his mom who sang when she was younger. When Bharadwaj came to Moreau three years ago, he joined the choir. “What I like about the choir is that so many people come together in one voice,” Bharadwaj said. “You have to be so precise, because if one person makes a mistake then it changes the entire ensemble.” Last year, Bharadwaj was rewarded for all his hard work when he was selected to the Honors Performance Series National Choir. This year, he was selected to the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) AllNational Honor Ensemble, Mixed Choir, Tenor 1. A Tenor 1 is the highest male voice in the choir. “Only state-level chorus students are eligible to audition for the national choir, and very few are selected after that process,” said Scott Barton, Moreau’s choral director. “This is truly the highest honor a student can achieve.” To participate in the National Honors Choir, singers first have to audition for a regional honors choir, then for their all-state chorus. Regionally, the individual singer must prepare and perform an Italian Operatic Aria, by memory, for a panel of two judges. These judges assess the singer’s musicianship skills, music literacy or “reading” ability, aural skills, and basic vocal tone development. The student must also read and perform at first sight a vocal line which is unfamiliar to him or her — in one minute. The student is provided only the starting pitch and must perform the notated music exactly as written to exhibit his or her skill level.
Pranav Turaga ’18
National Merit Awards
Moreau Catholic senior Pranav Turaga is one of approximately 16,000 semifinalists for the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program. Finalists will be notified in February. Additionally, 10 Moreau students were named as Commended Students. They include: Rahul Bharadwaj, Jerry Chen, Mekhla Kapoor, Anisha Nanisetti, Isabelle Osorio, Evan Prisk, Armaan Singh, Sarosh Sopariwalla, Kaylie Suan and Krystal Tsoi. About 34,000 students were recognized nationally for this award. About 1.6 million students in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). The nationwide pool of semifinalists, such as Turaga, includes the high-scoring entrants in each state. The commended students placed among the top 50,000 scores. Semifinalists have the opportunity to continue in the Merit Scholarship competition and advance to finalist standing by meeting a number of additional requirements.
“Only students who can read music at the highest level are accepted into the honors choirs,” Barton added. “Having a lovely voice isn’t what makes a singer; the skills developed in the practice room, private lesson, or school choral program are crucial to become a life-long, self-sufficient musician.” Last year, Bharadwaj performed at New York’s Carnegie Hall. This year, he will be performing with the 350-member mixed chorus in a gala concert at Walt Disney World. National Merit Scholarship Commended Student honorees.

Theater Arts Department Presents Dark Comedy
Arsenic and Old Lace The Theater Arts Department recently performed Arsenic and Old Lace – the second time Moreau has presented this play. Wrritten by Joseph Kesselring, it is a zany, whodunit American comedy that has delighted audiences for decades.
Some of her favorites over the years include Les Miserables for its story of redemption, compassion and social justice and Our Country’s Good with its themes of respect, humanity and the necessity of theatre to a civilized society. Like last year’s Macbeth, Our Country’s Good was performed on a thrust platform on top of the stage, with the audience also sitting on the stage creating a very intimate atmosphere.
“The original play was first produced in 1941, and still works today,” said Arlene Hood, Moreau’s theater arts teacher. “The students like the eccentric and funny characters, the shenanigans that take place and that the play is a farce. I love dark comedies!”
“There is a charm and immediacy of emotion when the actors and audience are sharing an experience in a small space,” Hood said.
Each year, the Theater Arts Department offers two major productions. The fall play is typically a non-musical. Moreau has produced a wide range of shows, from comedies like Arsenic and Old Lace to Shakespeare tragedies like Macbeth. The spring production is a musical. They range from musical romances, like last year’s Oklahoma! to the emotional epic sweep of Les Miserables. All students can audition or apply for a technical position for each show.
Some of her students have continued as professional actors and directors or in the technical side of theater, with many obtaining Master of Fine Arts degrees and performing in local, regional or national theaters. Five years ago, three Moreau graduates who did not know each other, found themselves in the same local production. It was only as they traded stories together did they discover that they all began under Hood’s tutelage.
“For the fall production, we have auditions after the second week of school and then six or seven weeks of rehearsal before our first performance,” Hood said. “In the case of Arsenic and Old Lace, I know the show well and we only had one set to build, making a shorter rehearsal schedule easier for both the students and me.”
“My philosophy with my drama students is that if you are a performer, you will leave here a good theater artist and not just a competent actor,” Hood said. “It’s not just about acting a scene but about being an artist. Ultimately, it’s really about using your artistry to be stewards of humanity.”
This year’s performance featured 13 cast members, two dead bodies and a crew of 19. The upcoming spring musical, Fiddler on the Roof, will have up to 40 cast members and more than 20 crew members. “I want to give as many students as possible the opportunity to be part of the play,” she said. Hood, in her 31st year at Moreau, has seen a significant drop in the number of students coming out for the school play. “Students have so many choices now with the explosion of technology and the internet. I used to have 60 or 70 students try out for the fall play and as many as 90 for a musical.”
Many of her students have followed her lead. Arlene Hood

Moreau Partners with Bay Scholars This year, Moreau Catholic High School has partnered with Bay Scholars, a San Francisco-based nonprofit organization that provides scholarships for promising low-income students across the Bay to attend college preparatory Catholic high schools. Moreau is honored to have 19 Bay Scholars attending our high school this year, each receiving a $10,000 four-year scholarship. Bay Scholars was founded by Clint and Janet Reilly ten years ago to support inner city youth who without economic help would be unable to attend the best high schools in the area. Their mission of promoting a life-altering experience connecting promising youth with transformative educational opportunities perfectly mirrored with Moreau’s Holy Cross pillars of “Bringing Hope” and “Educating Hearts and Minds.” A scholarship student himself and long-time advocate of social justice and civic engagement, Reilly saw education as a game changer for low-income families who face complex challenges to give their children a college prep high school education. He recognized that Bay Area Catholic high schools were successfully creating pathways to colleges and universities that are tailored to underserved and low-income students. The match between Bay Scholars and Moreau was a perfect fit. Students like Emily Loo ’21, are able to attend Moreau Catholic now that this partnership has been established. A Bay Scholars grant “allows me to attend Moreau and receive a college prep education that my family might not have otherwise been able to afford,” Loo said.
Freshman and Bay Scholar Emily Loo ’21
Loo’s favorite subject is science. She is interested in studying marine biology and has joined Moreau’s Marine Biology Club. In the spring, she plans to participate in track and field in the shot put and as a long-distance runner. Loo says she is happy with her decision to attend Moreau and has been impressed by “how dedicated the faculty are in helping the students.” She sees Moreau as a school that “provides opportunities, is a place to grow as a young person, and builds and places you on the path to success.”
First Jazz Ensemble Scholarship Awarded The First Annual Farhangui Jazz Scholarship was presented to freshman Aidan Greathouse at the Band and Orchestra Playathon Concert on September 19th. Aidan plays the euphonium and trombone. Last year, the Farhangui family approached Instrumental Music Director Ted Newton regarding offering a scholarship to an incoming freshman to encourage increased enrollment in the jazz program at Moreau. Aidan was the first recipient of the $500 scholarship, which is funded by the Farhangui family and PG&E. “We had a number of qualified applicants,” Newton said. “Each student was interviewed and submitted an audition tape and Aidan was selected.” The annual Playathon raised more than $12,000 through pledges and donations for Moreau’s band and orchestra program.

Jeremy Nguyen ’07 A CARTOONIST FOR THE NEW YORKER Jeremy Nguyen ’07 is a professional cartoonist who lives and works in New York. He has recently had work published in The New Yorker, Thrillist, and The Guardian, to name a few. The Vector recently caught up with Nguyen to see what he has been up to since he graduated from Moreau 10 years ago.
cartoons that appeared in the Explorer. I was also on student council, so I made a lot of posters for events, and enjoyed doing that. I kind of did as much drawing for anyone who would let me draw for them. I loved it. All of that informed me before going to the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. I got a pretty nice scholarship from them, and I had been interested in going there because they had a comics program, which I eventually majored in. The major was called Sequential Art and it covered comics, children’s books, storyboarding for television, film, and animation as well as illustration.
Have you always wanted to be a cartoonist? Oh yeah, definitely. I used to check out comics at Moreau’s library; they had a good selection of mainstream and independent comics. While I was at Moreau, I would take summer classes at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in animation and comic book illustration. I had a couple of fantastic teachers in the comics’ classes, both of whom are professional artists, Derek Kirk Kim, who did a lot of indies and graphic novels, and Walden Wong, who’s an award-winning comic book inker for DC Comics and Marvel.
Where did your career go after college? I did a comic right out of college called Stranger than Bushwick, which is about trends and cultural customs of what living in my neighborhood in Brooklyn is like. It definitely commented on the hipster community. I was lucky enough to pair my work with a local website that would publish these comics daily. They are pretty well known for covering the neighborhood in terms of new restaurants and bars opening up, as well as crime, news, and community events. The comic became kind of a local touchstone; a hit locally just because it was a burgeoning neighborhood. Young people in their 20s were moving there and they wanted to justify to their parents and their friends why this neighborhood was OK to live in. It became a comic for them to rely on as a source not only of what they are finding is cool but also what they are finding aggravating about living in this part of town. It reached beyond people who live in Bushwick to Brooklyn and Manhattan. There’s a lot of interest in it from art directors, so I’ve met a lot of people who wanted to hire me for commissioned illustration work because they found me through my comics online.
Was your main source of inspiration from comic books and graphic novels, or from comics in the newspaper? Well I liked both. I definitely grew up on Sunday strips and one of my favorite strips is Bizarro! by Dan Piraro. His comics were one-panel gags that didn’t follow a story. I did like other comics like Fox Trot and Wizard of Id; all the classic syndicated comics. I liked a whole range of cartoons and I didn’t know what I was going to get myself into, but I thought I’d be a graphic novelist or coloring my own web comics online. I had a range of interests and a range of comics that I liked, and I never really dismissed any comic that I got my hands on. After graduating from Moreau, were you always intending to be a professional artist? At Moreau, I did a lot of art and art-adjacent stuff, like doing graphic design stuff, yearbook, and I had some really bad
You recently had several comics published in The New Yorker that have a political theme. Is political humor giving you a lot of inspiration right now? I’m a huge fan of comedy and when I was living in the Bay Area, my introduction to political comedy was The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report. All their correspondents who were on the show are now huge and famous. I’ve always been interested in how they made politics accessible. I never thought personally that I’d be doing it; I never thought I had a strong political voice. It wasn’t until after college and moving to New York that I got into commenting on political topics. Do you find political humor to be cathartic for you as an artist or for your audience? Moreau Catholic 2017 34
I’m still admittedly not crazy about following politics, but truthfully, what interested me in doing more political cartoons is that The New Yorker has new avenues that they just opened up for more cartoonists to have a voice in. Now, there are about 12 cartoonists who are working on daily comics. Each submits a cartoon idea every morning and The New Yorker chooses the best one. So, I definitely got into reading more about what was going on and relying less on The Daily Show or Stephen Colbert; trying to figure out what my take was; and finding a joke that wasn’t being said on all the other outlets: John Oliver, Samantha Bee, all these great people. What are your goals moving forward? Being published in The New Yorker is one of the biggest goals I’ve had, even though, I never thought that I’d pursue it as intently as I did and as soon as I did. There’s always been this cover artist that I love who is actually Bay Area born and raised, and his name is Adrian Tomine. He’s had more than a dozen covers for The New Yorker and he lived in the Bay Area when I was in high school and then moved to Brooklyn when I went to college. He’s also Asian American and I totally looked up to his work. It’s interesting having Asian-American influences and heroes because his work and how he was published as a graphic novelist and as a cover artist was the trajectory that I thought I would be on. I thought that I would do graphic novels and I’d have a New Yorker cover; I never thought I’d be doing cartoons for The New Yorker just because I never saw that many Asians doing cartoons for them. I think it’s ridiculous now looking back thinking “I’m more likely to become a cover artist for The New Yorker than a cartoonist.” And, it’s completely the opposite now; I think it’s way harder to be a cover artist. The New Yorker allows me to do both writing and drawing and I’ve cultivated a new style that I am still honing. In college, I always thought I had a generic style, or people should always work in different mediums and draw differently all the time based on whatever technology was available or whatever assignment they were working on. So right now, I’m a freelance contractor with The New Yorker and other publications like Thrillist. I get private commissions from people who want to buy the cartoons that I put on Instagram. I also do a few gallery shows and group shows with some friends. We’re putting on a rejected New Yorker cartoon show in my neighborhood, so, I’m showing some of the cartoons that I’ve sent in and have been rejected, and they will be hung with the work of a lot of amazing cartoonists.

Remembering A True Mariner This past spring, the Moreau Catholic community suffered a great loss with the passing of Braxston Banks, a member of the class of 1986. A star running back for Moreau’s football team, Banks went on to play under coach Lou Holtz at the University of Notre Dame where he was a member of the 1988 National Championship team. Moreau Catholic was honored to host Banks’ family at a pre-game ceremony during the first home football game of the year against St. Patrick - St. Vincent High School on Friday, August 25th. During the ceremony, a framed jersey that Banks wore while playing for Moreau was presented to his family members and a letter from Lou Holtz was read aloud. The letter reads as follows: Dear Moreau Catholic High School community: Braxton Banks was in our ’86 recruiting class and for the next several years, he helped build the foundation for Notre Dame’s success. He was an outstanding running back, but an even better teammate. Braxton was a beautiful person and I can’t remember a time when he disappointed me. We like to say, “If you didn’t show up, who would miss you and why?” If Braxton Banks hadn’t chosen Notre Dame, we would have missed him and we do so today. My best wishes to you all as you honor Braxton at your first home game of the season. Sincerely, Lou Holtz While it was Banks’ ability on the football field that earned him national acclaim, perhaps his greatest accomplishments happened while he was not wearing pads and scoring touchdowns. He was a devoted father to his three children, Khabyl, Khorin, and Storm, and touched the lives of countless others as a coach and mentor to the youth here in Hayward. After his football career was over, he worked with the National Football League Player’s Association under the guidance of Hall of Famer Gene Upshaw, helping young players navigate their professional careers. Banks embodied the best of what it means to be a Mariner. He always had a smile on his face, always showed love to others, and brought out the best in everyone around him. He will be forever remembered and missed by the Moreau Catholic community, and by everyone who had the privilege to know him. Moreau Catholic 2017 36
