ST. JOSEPH’S COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE A Community

of

Excellence


presidentandprincipal Robert T. Scott, AFSC

Our Commitment to Excellence Buffalonians correlate the onset of autumn with the dawn of football season. We've accepted Labor Day as an indication that our next several Fridays and Saturdays will be spent supporting studentathletes before our attention turns to the pros on Sundays. We are – at times – fanatical over football!

ST. JOSEPH’S COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE

Those with a historical knowledge of the National Football League certainly associate the title of this column with mercurial Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis. Yet it is a quote by Green Bay Packers legend Vince Lombardi that resonates the most with me as another season and school year - is upon us: "Gentlemen, we are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect. But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence." You see, Coach Lombardi was very good at this type of thing. An eloquent wordsmith, he needed only a fleeting moment to inspire his team to play to the best of their abilities, or in other words, to perform excellently. At St. Joe's, we often refer to ourselves as "A Community of Excellence," a phrase wrought by 149 years of pursuing perfection knowing from our biblical teachings that it's unattainable - and resultantly settling for excellence. Excellence is all around us. It's in our classrooms, where a remarkable 140 underclassmen achieved first honors for all four semesters last

year. It's on our athletic fields, where St. Joe's has won an incredible 31 Supremacy Cups, more than any other school. You can find excellence in the religious zeal of our Christian Brothers, the concerted sounds of our Jazz Lab Band, the problem-solving abilities of our Math Team, and so on and so forth. We write it. We read it. We believe it. The key to continuing our tradition of excellence is realizing that this standard will unremittingly be a challenge to maintain. Quite frankly, human nature inclines us to relent in our pursuit rather than to make it a relentless one. Our faculty and staff consider it both a privilege and a responsibility to welcome, to inspire and - yes - to challenge each and every young man that walks through our doors. It is our philosophy that by doing so, each student has a legitimate opportunity to capture his own excellence. It is up to our young men to recognize that these opportunities have been presented to them and to make the most of them while at St. Joe's. Thanks to the extremely generous contributions of the graduates that preceded them, current students can utilize a recentlyupdated black box theater and lecture hall, a one-year-old, all-weather athletic field complex, and a brand new, state-

of-the-art science center - all of which are centrally located on our campus at 845 Kenmore Avenue. All of this - our history, our accomplishments, our opportunities - is something to be proud of. There have been times over the last year when it has appeared to me that our younger students have lost some of that indefinable "St. Joe's Swagger." A portion of this may be attributed to the challenges that some of our sports teams endured last season, especially when viewed through our lens as the most successful program in Western New York Catholic School history. Decades of unparalleled success interspersed with a season or two that reinvigorates us to work even harder? Again, we strive for perfection and arrive at excellence. As we approach the sesquicentennial celebration of St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute, let us - each and every one of us - do so with the spirit, pride and zeal that our school's rich tradition so rightfully deserves. To quote Lombardi once more: "Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work." We are not perfect; nobody is, but if we collectively strive to pursue perfection, we can procure excellence.

specialevent Dedication Of The Cullen Center for Excellence in Science & Residence for the Brothers of the Christian Schools A ceremony to bless and dedicate the Cullen Center for Excellence in Science and Residence for the Brothers of the Christian Schools was held at St. Joe's on August 30. Bishop Edward U. Kmiec and various community members gathered to celebrate the event, which signaled the conclusion of the school's most recent capital campaign.

Bishop Edward U. Kmiec blesses the Cullen Center for Excellence in Science moments after the facility's donor recognition wall is unveiled.

Hosted by Board Chairman, Mark E. Brand '80, the dedication was also attended by donors from the St. Joe's community, faculty and staff and local dignitaries. Immediately following the formal program, the three-story facility was made available for the public to explore, with St. Joe’s students on hand to serve as tour guides in a casual, open house style setting. The Cullen Center for Excellence in Science includes two floors of classrooms and laboratories, interfaced and equipped with state-of-the-art teaching aids, computer technology,

and scientific instrumentation, including digital microscopes, SMART boards, wireless computer networks, and gas chromatographs. Designated areas for chemical storage, lab preparation, and expanded space for team experiments present teachers with increased flexibility in curriculum presentation, and allow for hands-on science to occur on a daily basis. Situated on the building’s third level, the new Residence for the Brothers of the Christian Schools provides the Brothers with dignified housing, suitable to maintain the 149-year presence of

their community as a vital influence on our campus. The residence features a private entrance, central chapel, contemporary kitchen, outdoor patio, dining area, all-purpose room, and seven bedrooms en suite. All told, the Pride in our Past... Faith in our Future capital campaign, initiated in 2006, realized over $13.5 million - an unprecedented amount for St. Joe’s - with funds earmarked toward the construction of this facility, the all-weather Robert T. Scott, AFSC Athletic Field Complex, and, perhaps most importantly, bolstering the school's endowment portfolio and annual fund. In his dedication remarks, Mr. Scott expressed his pleasure in being in able to provide a scholastic environment commensurate to the abilities of the young men of St. Joe's. "I am confident in saying that the campaign truly exceeded our hopes and dreams of building an even stronger school, a school which remains firmly dedicated to the mission we were originally founded for - the next generation of St. Joe’s students." Thank you to the entire St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute community for helping to make this project a resounding success and furthering our school's model of academic excellence and organizational sustainability.
