New Space, New Technology Kick Off Year What’s new at Vianney this school year? Plenty! The former multi-purpose room at the juncture of the 100 and 200 hallways (the room known to most alumni as the library) has been converted into our new Leadership Center. The bright, inviting space provides a conference room, offices for members of the guidance and counseling department, and muchimproved space for testing and presentations by college representatives. In addition, every classroom has been equipped with a 60-inch, flat-screen LED

television. These TVs communicate wirelessly with the teacher’s laptop and are in daily use for presentations and web page display. Vianney is also moving to the “Google Apps” online environment to take advantage of the flexibility and simplicity of cloud computing. “Our goal with Google Apps is to enable students to share data and create documents and presentations in a collaborative, online environment,”

Griffins take advantage of the new Leadership Center during encore to catch up on homework and collaborate on projects.

said Vianney’s new Instructional Technology Coordinator, Mr. Drew McAllister. “As an added bonus, because everything is online, a student won’t accidentally lose a file or leave important homework at home,” Mr. McAllister said. With an integrated e-mail system powered by Gmail, students will also have access to their Vianney e-mail anywhere at any time. “Teachers, counselors and coaches are using the system as a quick and efficient way to connect with students,” Mr. McAllister said.

Mr. Drew McAllister works with juniors Mark Segbers (left) and Kevin Henschel on Vianney’s new Google Chromebook laptop computers.

With the move to the Google Apps environment, Vianney also purchased 60 Google Chromebook laptop computers. The computers are fast, light and cost-effective, and they are proving to be a great tool for immersing Griffins in the online creation environment.

Vianney Academics Earn Top 50 Ranking Nationally The academic program at St. John Vianney High School has placed among the top 50 Catholic high schools nationally, earning an “Honor Roll” ranking based on a rigorous evaluation by the Cardinal Newman Society. There are 1,205 Catholic high schools in the United States. Vianney was designated as a school whose academic program is among the top 50 of these. The Catholic High School Honor Roll program looks at three areas in all: academics, civic education and Catholic identity. Schools

named to the Top 50 Catholic High Schools are recognized for overall excellence in all three Honor Roll categories. Other schools, like Vianney, receive special recognition in a particular category by placing in the top 50 in that individual classification. The Top 50 Catholic High Schools competition was created in 2004 to help parents evaluate the quality of Catholic high schools. It also serves to inspire these schools to pursue ever-higher levels of excellence through constructive competition.

Vianney is the only Catholic boys’ school in St. Louis to be recognized in this competition. This is a significant honor for Vianney, and we are grateful to our faculty and staff, and to our parents, alumni and other donors, who make possible Vianney’s ongoing pursuit of excellence.

A Celebration of Griffins of the Year The Griffin of the Year is the highest honor bestowed in a graduating class. It is given to the young man who best exemplifies the characteristics of Marianist education and lives the Vianney mission. In recent decades, class members have made nominations for this honor, and Vianney faculty and staff have voted among top nominees to determine the winner. In two classes of early Griffins, 1962 and 1966, the Griffin of the Year honor was not bestowed. Reasons why — if they existed — have been forgotten. To correct this oversight, Vianney hosted these classes in August to allow them to grant this long-delayed award. At the first allschool Mass, Griffins from 1962 and 1966 were applauded by Vianney students and staff. Griffins of the Year

Vianney hosted past Griffins of the Year at the first all-school Mass in August.

Vianney invited all Griffins of the Year to join us for the first all-school Mass in August. Those who were able to attend included the following. Back row: Bob Barrett ’65, Tom Lang ’64, Mark Lux ’75, Tom Downing ’67, Mike Horn ’08 and Chris Heeb ’84. Front row: Joe Ojile ’77, Jim Voorhees ’78, Larry Bommarito ’71, Bill Bommarito ’73 and Dan Shea ’72.

Given the passage of the decades, these classes chose not to designate individuals for the honor. Instead, those assembled from each class accepted the award collectively in the spirit of Vianney brotherhood. Griffins of the Year from every graduating class were also invited to attend the Mass. We were pleased to welcome honorees spanning 1965 to 2008.

Griffins of the Year 1966 Back row: James Sevem, Bill Krodinger, Al Barton and Charlie Touzinsky. Front row: Bob Hughes, Dan Lamping and Richard Bayers.

Griffins of the Year 1962 Back row: Mike Rosemann, Leo Sullivan, John Rosenauer and Art Molner. Front row: Bob Burkhardt, Tim Handlan, Bill Wittenauer and Joe Biondo.



Where are they now? Catching up with Griffins of the Year 1961 - 1979 Vianney’s Griffins of the Year have always been men who stepped up when asked, so we were not surprised when many of them responded to our request for an update on their lives. What follows is an encapsulation of the information they sent. Some submissions were detailed, others quite brief. Before we go further, we need to make an apology. In the last issue of Black & Gold, we included a photo we thought was of the very first Griffin of the Year, William Scharf. Instead, the headshot was of Bill’s classmate, John Murphy. Given the way names are arranged in the 1961 Talon yearbook, it was easy to misinterpret which name belonged with which Griffin. We got it wrong, and we’re sorry. While we regret the goof, we were gratified to hear from a number of ’61 grads, including Mike Beckman, Tom Charron, Jim Lavelle and John Murphy, who informed us of our error. Thanks for reading and thanks for keeping us honest!

Among the Class of 2012 was Michael Scharf, the nephew of the original Griffin of the Year. He was joined by his parents Keith ’79 and Donna Scharf, and his grandmother, Mrs. Loretto Scharf (center). When Bill Scharf graduated in 1961, his mother was pregnant with Keith. In this photo, Mrs. Loretto Scharf is wearing on her collar a pin presented to her by the Vianney Marianists in 1961 for serving as an officer in the original Mothers’ Club.

country’s premier architectural firms. Among his projects was the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport.

Bill was chosen to be Vianney’s first Griffin of the Year. He set the bar very high.

“Bill was a super, super young man,” said Mrs. Loretto Scharf, Bill’s mother. “Of course I’d say that, as his mother, but he really was quite gifted.” At Bill’s graduation, Mrs. Scharf was pregnant with Bill’s younger brother, Keith. Keith Scharf grew up to become a Griffin as well, graduating in 1979.

Bill Scharf died in 1974.

1961 William Scharf Bill Scharf ’s senior class was the first to walk the halls of the brand-new Vianney High School. Although it was a small class — just 33 young men — Bill Scharf would have stood out even in a much larger Bill Scharf ’61 group. He served as senior class president, played varsity football, and was a member of the senior sodality and the glee club. Bill was a gifted artist and drew the first Griffin used as the Vianney symbol. He also played guitar in a band with some of his classmates. Bill attended the University of Detroit, earning a degree in architecture. When he returned to St. Louis, he took a position with Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum (HOK), one of the


1963 Donald Cassilly Life was simpler when Don Cassilly and his twin brother Dave Cassilly were Griffins. The Cassilly boys lived a short walk from Vianney,

Keith’s son Michael Scharf graduated from Vianney in May. In keeping with the legacy, Mike was an honor student; he’s now attending Saint Louis University. Mrs. Scharf was pleased to attend Mike’s graduation in May. It reminded her of a graduation day 51 years earlier. “We didn’t find out until we came to Vianney on graduation day that Bill was also valedictorian of his class. He hadn’t told us. He wanted it to be a surprise,” said Mrs. Scharf. Earning such a high honor and being able to hold it for a surprise may demonstrate why

and would hop the back school fence on their commute. One of the Marianist brothers made their trip even easier by giving them a key to a back door.

1968 Anthony Garofalo Don said he always expected to become a priest, and he entered the Marianist novitiate after graduating from Vianney. “It turns out that was not what God had in store for me,” Don wrote. He ended up earning a bachelor’s at Drury University and a law degree from St. Mary’s University. He and his wife Lynn, have been married for 38 years and have lived in Florida since the mid-1980s, raising two sons there. He came back to St. Louis a couple of years ago and spent some time with his cousin, fellow Griffin, and famed local artist Bob Cassilly ’68. (Bob, founder of the City Museum, died last year.)

1964 Thomas Lang Tom Lang distinguished himself in the first “all-four-years-at-Vianney” graduating class and has continued to build an impressive résumé over the years. He received a BA at St. Mary’s University and earned a law degree from Saint Louis University. Since 1971, he has had a law office in Clayton.

Tony Garofalo says he has been “very fortunate” in his career as an athletic trainer. He credits Vianney coaches Don Heeb and Irv Capler for launching him on his path.

Bob met his wife Sherry on the very day he

In 1983, Tony became one of the founding members of the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society (PBATS). His career in MLB included meeting then-Vice President George H.W. Bush and being personally thanked by Bruce Sutter in Sutter’s Hall of Fame induction speech. Tony has served as president of the Illinois Athletic Trainers Association and on the board of the Great Lakes Athletic Trainers Association. He continues to lecture at the state and district level on athletic training and baseball injuries.

He has served as an officer on both the Missouri Bar Association and the St. Louis County Bar Association. He was recognized as the St. Louis Bar’s “Outstanding Young Lawyer” in 1979 and received the organization’s Distinguished Service Award in 1998. Tom has led and served on a number of committees to improve legal services to families and the poor. Tom Lang ’64

Tom served as chairman of Vianney’s Board of Directors from 1992 to 1998 and was inducted into our Hall of Fame in 1999. He has served for many years as a CYC coach and Parish School of Religion teacher at Ascension Parish. Tom and his wife Jill have five children and five grandchildren.

Scholarship Funds Keep the Vianney Dream Alive In fiscal year 2011-2012, generous donors gave more than $265,000 to specific scholarship funds at Vianney. These scholarships are a profound blessing in lives of scores of Griffins. For many boys, it makes the difference between the privilege of attending Vianney or going to a public school. Could you consider providing a scholarship to Vianney? You are free to define the amount and requirements of the scholarship, within certain parameters. Many of the scholarships currently offered are in memory of an alumnus, such as Clay Pfeiffer ’11 or Dan Riordan ’01. Other scholarships are targeted to certain types of students. For more information on creating a scholarship, please contact Pete Cerone ’93, Director of Advancement, at, or 314.965.4853, ext. 118.

Vianney students themselves are among the hundreds of scholarship fund donors. We are grateful to all those who help keep Vianney spirit alive!

FALL 2012

New Grad Creates Non-Profit to Help Troubled Teens While his classmates were buying dorm supplies and finalizing their freshman fall schedules, John Schenk ’12 has been setting up a board of directors, organizing volunteer training and considering whether to hire a development director. John Schenk is not your typical new alumnus. While his classmates have headed off to college, he’s been John Schenk ’12 busy getting his new non-profit organization, Teens to Teens, up and running. Schenk created Teens to Teens as a peermentoring organization that “seeks to bring the spiritual component to helping teens deal with crisis,” Schenk says. The program will operate through Catholic high schools — he has 16 on board so far — and will reach out to students who are struggling with personal issues. Schenk’s vision is that Teens to Teens will help young people build strong, positive

relationships with their peers so that they can deal with issues such as bullying, grief, drugs and suicide.

We provide peer mentoring services rooted in Catholic teaching, demonstrating that Jesus Christ is the center of healing and help for anyone when they struggle. From the Teens to Teens website

The basic concept of Teens to Teens is that volunteer teens within each school are trained to identify and befriend fellow students who may be in crisis. Through this peer support system, the troubled young person can be guided toward help and health.

Schenk was navigating the entrepreneurial waters before he reached adolescence. He started his first company, a sports memorabilia business, in the fifth grade. He successfully marketed autographs for names that included Stan Musial, Lou Brock and Bob Gibson. He dissolved the company during his senior year, after a falling out with his business partner. Schenk’s attitude, energy and leadership skills have inspired adults to enlist in his plans for Teens to Teens. Fr. Mitch Doyen ’79, president of St. Mary’s High School, will serve as chairman of the board. Other board members include an attorney, a social worker and a psychologist. So while his fellow Griffins in the class of 2012 are off to school this fall, Schenk will be busy running Teens to Teens. And in case that doesn’t keep him busy enough, he is also taking a full course load at Meramec Community College. He has no reason to believe he won’t be successful in that, too. You can learn more about Schenk’s organization at

Most 18-year-olds would not be brave enough to launch an organization, but

Summer Camps = a Hot Time at Vianney It’s not unusual for there to be hundreds of boys on campus at Vianney. But it might surprise some to learn that there are hundreds here in June. And July. And that some of the boys on campus are well shy of five foot in height. Summer has become a hopping time at Vianney, as the halls, sports fields and gyms host scores of grade schoolers and Griffins for sports camps, as well as for Camp Griffin, a week-long gathering of incoming freshmen. This summer, total attendance at summer camps topped 700.

At the close of Camp Griffin, members of the Class of 2016 gathered in the chapel with Fr. Tim Kenney, S.M., for Mass.

Camp Griffin allowed new students, including Joe Thaier, to try out unfamiliar sports such as lacrosse. The boys tossed around tennis balls, so regular safety gear wasn’t necessary.
