Frank Walk Sr. ’37 Has Served His Church, Community and Country

As an elementary

through secondary

student at Catholic High School

on the North Street campus,

Frank H.

Walk Sr. ’37

could not have

imagined the

opportunities

ahead of him

or the impact

he would have.

He has spent

his life serving his community,

church and country and with

each opportunity he has made a

difference in the lives of others.

At 20 years old, Walk

graduated from Louisiana

State University with a B.S. in

Mechanical Engineering and

later earned an M.S. in Civil

Engineering.

Walk considers service

to country his first career. He

began his military service at

the age of 21 when he received

a commission in the U.S. Army

Corps of Engineers and General

Staff Corps in 1941. He reported

for active duty and within three

months Walk was promoted

from 2nd Lieutenant to 1st

Lieutenant.

At 23 years

“I remember the principal

at the time, Brother

Peter, as a role model.”

old, he

graduated

from the

U. S. Army

Command

and General

Staff School.

After his superior was

disabled on D-Day, June 6, 1944,

Walk became Traffic Control

Officer for all of Omaha Beach

at Normandy, an awesome

responsibility, especially for a

23-year-old Captain. Before

his military career ended in

1947, Walk had served in both

Europe and the Pacific, had

been promoted to Lt. Colonel

and had received two Bronze

Star Medals. The first Bronze

Star was awarded for bravery

on Omaha Beach, June 6, 1944.

home to Baton Rouge

where he married

Connie Faust and began

what he considers his

second career as an

engineer. In 1959, he

founded the firm Walk,

Haydel & Associates

in New Orleans, later

with branches in Baton

Rouge and elsewhere.

It was a multidiscipline

engineering

organization which

grew to 700 engineers

and other technical

personnel, specializing

in industrial plant design,

overall project management,

5

environmental engineering

assessment and construction

management.

Walk served as its

Chairman and CEO until 1995

when the company merged

with Dames & Moore. The

company later merged with

URS Corporation, which Walk

currently serves as a consultant.

His third career came as

an appointment by then United

States President Ronald Reagan

as one of seven members of the

Mississippi River Commission,

a very prestigious body

responsible for flood control

and navigation on the entire

Mississippi River. Walk’s

experience working summer

vacations on river steamboats,

together with his military

engineering experience and his

private engineering practice,

were of great assistance in this

assignment. He served on the

commission from 1987 to 1997.

Throughout his lifetime

Walk has always found time to

give back to his community, his

church and his fellow man. He

has served as president of the

Chamber of Commerce, New

Orleans and River Region, and

as president of the World Trade

Center, as well as in leadership

roles in other organizations at

city, state and federal levels.

Walk served as organizer

and director of over 5,000

Frank H. Walk Sr. ’37

volunteers of all faiths for the

1987 visit of Pope John Paul II

to New Orleans. His service to

the Lord has been recognized

by his Church locally and by

Pope John Paul II who named

him a Knight of St. Gregory.

Walk fondly recalled his

time at Catholic High with the

Brothers of the Sacred Heart

who assisted in his formation.

“I remember the principal

at the time, Brother Peter,

as a great role model and as

someone who was always there

for guidance. I recall Brother

Robert, my Latin teacher, and

Brother Cornelius, who gave

me my foundation in math. I

also recall Brother Arnold, my

third grade teacher, as a strict

disciplinarian, and I needed it,”

reflected Walk.

Frank Walk’s recognitions,

awards and commendations are

too numerous to list. However,

his true success is seen in his

own words.

“God has been on my

side throughout my life. Any

success that I have attained is

attributed to Him and to the

wonderful wife He gave me,”

stated Walk.

Walk and his late wife of

over 63 years, Connie, have five

children – Wendy, Karen, Frank

Jr., Wade and Wesley – and nine

grandchildren. He resides in

New Orleans.

Memorial Endowment Established To Benefit CHS Track Program

Endowment was established

by his son Michael, daughterin-law

Neysa,

and their children

Ashley, Jeremy,

Rebecca and

Lauren. The

endowment,

which will benefit

the CHS track

from his father’s

love of track and field and his

relationship with long-time

CHS Track and Field Coach

Pete Boudreaux ’59. Jim

participated in track and field

at LSU and was a track official

at LSU for many years.

“From the very first day

that I met Jim many years ago

we both found that we had a

very common bond (actually

two) — a great love of Catholic

High School and a great love

for the sport of track and field.

We worked together as track

officials at LSU for many years

and in that time Jim often

times seemed to know more

about the CHS track program

than the CHS track coach did

(athletes’ times, jumps, throws,

etc.). He constantly stayed in

touch with us and our program

even though his children were

attending other schools. He

was a great gift to us all and

express how

appreciative and honored we

are to keep Jim’s memory alive

through this Endowment,”

commented Boudreaux.

“As a kid, dad would take

us to the LSU track meets. I

remember him measuring for

the long jump and triple jump,

and my job was to rake the pit

after each jump. I got to meet

many of the college track and

field athletes from around the

country. After the jumping

track was his favorite. I know

he is honored to have this

recalled Michael Gremillion.

Starting with his junior

year, after his family moved

from New Orleans, Gremillion

enrolled at Catholic High

School. His brothers, Carl ’52

and Ernie ’54, followed him

to Catholic. At CHS he played

basketball, tennis and ran track.

He also was very active in the

CYO at St. Anthony. After his

years at CHS, he participated

in a number of fundraisers and

he always enjoyed the annual

Annual Fund

Gifts to the 2009-10 Annual Fund Are Requested by June 30

By Joni Owens

The CHS Office of

Advancement is wrapping up

efforts for the 2009-10 Annual

Fund Appeal to alumni and

friends. As of May 27, 2010, 581

of 7,947, or 7.31 percent, of the

CHS alums have made gifts

to the school. Of those gifts,

$132,428.54 was designated

for the Annual Fund. The

participation goal for the

alumni portion of the Annual

Fund Appeal is 20 percent.

In November, all CHS

alumni received a letter in the

mail requesting their support

of the CHS Annual Fund. Since

that mailing, alums who have

not responded have received

follow-up reminders for their

support via Bear Facts II, CHS

Connections and e-mails from

CHS Advancement Director

Hal Dupuy ’73. A reminder

postcard was mailed at the

beginning of June to all alums

who do not have a valid e-mail

address in the Advancement

database.

“I understand that many

of our alums and friends have

fallen upon difficult financial

Friends Giving

times. However, our need for

their support has not changed.

I know that every alum can

not make a large gift, but I do

believe that most can participate

at some level. The amount

donated to date is substantial,

but it goes quickly when you

consider the 1,000 plus students

and 100 plus faculty and staff

members who benefit from it.

I encourage my fellow alums

to prayerfully reflect on the

impact that our Catholic High

education has had on their

lives and respond accordingly,”

commented Dupuy.

CHS friends are defined

as organizations or individuals

who are not current students,

current parents or alums of

CHS. As of May 27, 702 friends

have made gifts totaling over

$138,842 to the Annual Fund.

“Gifts from CHS friends are

unique in that many of them no

longer have a direct connection

with the school, yet they

partner with us because they

believe in and want to support

our mission. Their investment

in CHS helps to ensure quality

Catholic education and sustains

Endowed Scholarship

Perry Thomas Fischer Memorial Endowed Scholarship Established

By Hal Dupuy ’73

The Perry Thomas Fischer

Memorial Endowed Scholarship

has been established by his

parents, Mr. and Mrs. George

A. Fischer. The Fischers have

chosen to begin this scholarship

at Catholic High because of

their strong belief in Catholic

education and in thanks to the

Brothers of the Sacred Heart for

their role in educating youth.

Perry was the second of

three children adopted by

George and Lillian Fischer. He

was diagnosed with leukemia

at age three and passed away

on June 5, 1966, at the age of

five.

“Even though he was only

with us a short time, we will

forever treasure Perry. In his

five years he brought us such

great joy,” commented Mrs.

Fischer.

Perry had an older brother,

Kevin, a 1972 Brother Martin

graduate, and a younger sister,

Mary, who graduated from

St. Joseph’s Academy in 1982.

Kevin’s son, Alexander, attends

Pope John Paul High School in

Slidell. Mary’s son, Tommy ’08,

graduated from Catholic High

and her daughter, Gretchen, is a

2010 SJA graduate. Her younger

son, Grant, will begin eighth

grade at CHS next fall.

“Anyone who spends any

time with George and Lillian

will soon realize how important

family is to them. It is such a joy

to see the love they have for their

children and grandchildren.

Their caring nature will now

extend to others through the

gift of this scholarship,”

commented Brother Ray

Hebert, SC, upon accepting

the donation on behalf of the

Brothers of the Sacred Heart

and Catholic High School.

in honoring a loved one by

establishing an endowed

scholarship or endowment,

68 percent of CHS parents

have responded to the 2009-10

Parents Annual Giving Event

(PAGE) appeal. This is down

from 76 percent response from

parents in 2008-09.

“Gifts can be made to the

2009-10 PAGE appeal through

June 30, so there is still time

for parents to reach last year’s

response record,” commented

Hal Dupuy ’73, CHS director of

advancement.

The CHS PAGE program

implemented a mandatory

parent meeting format in 2008-

09 which resulted in the most

successful PAGE campaign

in the school’s history, raising

almost $460,000.

“Through their vision

and understanding of our

message, along with their

financial support, we were

able to limit tuition increases

for the 2009-2010 school year,

significantly increase faculty

in-service training, increase

the budget for instructional

technology by more than 40

percent and increase faculty

and staff compensation and

benefits. These things would

simply not have been possible

without the generosity of PAGE

contributors,” commented

Gene Tullier, CHS president.

The mandatory parent

meeting format was continued

in 2009-10, but only parents

of new incoming 8th and 9th

grade students were required

to attend. The idea is that

Alumni Encouraged to Reconnect

on Alumni Online Community

The CHS Alumni Online

Community, which launched

in August 2009, has allowed

alumni from across the world

to reconnect with Catholic High

as well as former classmates.

Prayer requests are posted and

updated often. Alumni are

invited to log in to the Alumni

Online Community and pray

for their fellow alums or post

prayer requests of their own.

“I would like to encourage

our many alumni to submit

prayer requests through the

Alumni Online Community.

The Online Community

provides the opportunity for

over 9,000 alumni to pray

8th and 9th grade students will

be required to attend one of the

two meetings.

Parents who have not yet

made a gift to PAGE can do

so by June 30. PAGE gifts can

be made online with a credit

card at www.catholichigh.org

or with a check, made payable

to CHS, mailed to CHS PAGE,

808 Hearthstone Drive, Baton

any additional questions,

please contact Dupuy in the

CHS Advancement Office at

and support one another. As

we have been taught by the

Brothers of the Sacred Heart

and our church, the power of

prayer can be both healing and

comforting,” commented Glen

Randow, director of alumni

relations.

Alumni are able to log on to

the Alumni Online Community

with the e-mail address

currently on file in the alumni

database. For alumni who do

Sports in the Past

By David Butler ’77

As first baseman

Colin Mancuso ’10

caught the throw

from second baseman

Alex Guitreau ’11,

they concluded

Catholic High’s

most successful

athletic year, sealing

David Butler ’77 Catholic’s fifth state

championship this year.

Besides its five state titles, the Bears finished

state runner-up twice.

Catholic began the year winning its

second consecutive cross country title and

then won its fourth consecutive indoor

track title. The wrestling team, under Coach

Tommy Prochaska ’92, won its second state

title in three years while the track team won

its third consecutive state title. Capping the

season was the first baseball championship

since 1976. In swimming and golf the Bears

finished as state runner-up. The tennis

team was tied for second at completion of

play but lost a tie breaker for the runner-up

position. Strong showings by the football,

basketball and soccer teams in the state

playoffs added to the success of this year’s

athletic program.

Although Catholic has had a number

of successful years in sports, the five

state championships this year is the most

recorded in one year, surpassing the four

earned in 1990-91 and 2007-08. During the

1990-91 year, the Bears won state titles in

golf, soccer, track and indoor track. In 2007-

08, the Bears won state titles in indoor track,

track, wrestling and bowling. On multiple

occasions Catholic won three state titles:

1991-92 (cross country, golf, tennis), 2001-

FIRST STATE GOLF TITLE. Catholic High captured its first Golf State Champion AAA Title in school history

in 1982. Members of the team included (l to r) Wade Gautreau’82, Henry Lastrapes ’82, Trey McCowan

’82, Coach Curtis Varnado, Chris Berthelot ’83 and Dan Lastrapes ’83. (Bruin yearbook)

02 (cross country, golf, tennis) and 2008-09

(cross country, indoor track, track).

The 1981-82 athletic year was one

of Catholic High’s finest as they finished

either first, second or third in state in seven

sports with football and wrestling the only

exceptions. Catholic won the golf title that

year and finished runner-up in basketball,

baseball, track, tennis and cross country.

In 2006-07, Catholic High achieved

unmatched athletic success — winning

district or city titles in all 10 sports including

state titles in bowling and indoor track.

“It was an incredible year, one

unprecedented in Catholic High athletic

history. It is a tribute to our athletes and

coaches and the job they did together,”

stated Athletic Director Pete Boudreaux ’59

in reflecting on this year’s accomplishments.
