Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide students an

education rooted in the life of Christ

and to foster the pursuit of excellence

in the whole person.


Dear Parents, Alumni, and Friends,

I am truly honored to be a part of the Bishop O’Connell community at such an exciting

time. I am inspired by the legacy left by the dedicated men and women of our six

founding parishes, who sought an option of Catholic education for their children and

parishioners more than fifty years ago. This rich history compels us to work even

harder toward ensuring a bright future for generations of “Knights” to come.

In my many conversations over the past four months with our alumni community,

I am reminded that school spirit has never been something taken lightly at DJO! This

same school spirit experienced by our alumni is alive and well today in the hallways of

O’Connell and in the hearts of over 1,200 young men and women from over 80 schools

across two states and the District of Columbia who make up our current student body.

In these challenging times, it is more important than ever for parents to choose

Catholic education for their child. Pope John Paul II speaks of community as the heart

of all Catholic education. At O’Connell, students learn and understand the value of

community as they experience the unique environment and educational programs that

are the hallmarks of Bishop O’Connell. As Dr. Vorbach and I make admissions visits

to local elementary schools, we listen in awe to our own students’ narratives on what

makes Bishop O’Connell special. Over and over we hear the words that speak to our

school spirit, sense of community, opportunities for spiritual growth, and challenging

curriculum. With much emphasis they proclaim, “Our teachers really care; they will go

out of their way to help you be successful.”

President’s

Message

To ensure that this special gift of an O’Connell education continues to thrive, we are

engaged in an intense effort to identify the current and future needs of our students.

Our goal is to take an in-depth look at how best to guarantee the continuing excellence

of O’Connell and build a vision based on the best of who we are and what we aspire to

become. We are closely examining our facility needs focused on building renovations

and repairs (including already planned green initiatives), technology integration in

the curriculum, science lab refurbishments, and theater and auditorium needs. At the

same time we are in the final design phase of our Athletic Fields Renovation Project,

which is slated to begin this school year. In reality, all of these projects are considered

top priorities, though our partnership with Marymount University in the Athletic

Fields Renovation Project has help launch this particular project as the next major

improvement designed to unequivocally position Bishop O’Connell as the best option

for Catholic education in the Washington metropolitan area.

I am looking forward to working closely with our community to build on the 53-year

tradition of service, spirit, and excellence that has defined Bishop O’Connell High School.

Sincerely,

Kathleen Ryan Prebble

Dear Parents, Alumni, and Friends,

These are exciting times at Bishop Denis J. O’Connell High School. As parents and fellow

alumni of this fine school, you share with me a strong belief in the values of Catholic

education and the qualities that Bishop O’Connell imparts on its students. Despite the tough

economic period through which we have now emerged, Bishop O’Connell has charted a

course for growth and improvements that will enhance our academic, athletic and other

extra-curricular programs.

Chairman’s

Message

We have achieved a number of milestones during the past school year, including, most importantly,

celebrating our 50th commencement exercise. We have also managed to continue

to set records for our fundraising efforts, including more than $440,000 for our Annual

Fund giving, an order of magnitude increase from just six years ago. We also set a record for

our leadership giving to our President’s Club, with a 30 percent increase in membership. All

told, among our Advancement efforts and fundraising by our various boosters clubs, Bishop

O’Connell is raising over $1 million annually toward our needs!

But our work has only just begun. The coming year will be filled with excitement. First, we

welcome our new president, Kathleen Ryan Prebble, who assumed her duties on July 1.

Katy comes to us after a tremendous eight-year record of achievement with Mount de Sales

Academy in Macon, Georgia. She has nearly 30 years experience as a teacher and school

administrator, all in Catholic education. After four years of planning, we are excited to begin

our athletic complex renovation, a multi-year three-phase campaign which is described in

greater detail elsewhere in this report. Additionally, we will be developing and implementing

several significant new academic initiatives, including our Global Initiative, academic partnerships

with a local university, plans for technology additions to our classrooms, renovation

of our science labs, and the continued upgrade and greening of our physical plant.

The challenges facing Catholic education in the 21st century are daunting. You are an

integral part of our ability to meet these challenges. We began the 2010-11 school year with

an enrollment of more than 1,200 students and aggressive marketing plans to increase that

enrollment over time. We remain committed to our mission, which is to provide students

an education rooted in the life of Christ and to foster the pursuit of excellence in the whole

person, and to meet our continuing objective of offering the finest Catholic educational

experience in the country. And we need your continued support.

The Board of Governors is keenly aware of our need to remain focused on long-term strategic

planning and our duty for sound fiscal management of our programs and facilities. We

cannot achieve this without you—our current families, our alumni, and all of the greater

DJO community.

We hope that when you read our President’s Report, you will be excited by the accomplishments

and the momentum that you feel arising from this spirit-filled community. And we

hope you will ask yourself what you can do to help us achieve our objectives in this year and

the years to come. The Bishop O’Connell community has always been known for its heart

and its giving nature. Now more than ever we hope that we can count on you to join us,

because big things are happening on Little Falls Road every day.

Peace,

Kevin J. Fay ’73

Chairman, Board of Governors

Athletic Fields Renovation

Becoming a Reality

Bishop O’Connell is concluding the design

phase of the long awaited renovation of its

outdoor athletic complex. The renovation

is the first part of a series of initiatives that

the school is launching to build on our

53-year tradition of excellence in serving

our students and our community. It is

envisioned that the renovated fields will

benefit students and athletic teams from

Bishop O’Connell, nearby Marymount

University, and the Arlington community.

Project Summary:

Three Phase

Renovation Plan

The project, which is slated to start during

this school year, contemplates a three

phase renovation of the O’Connell rectangular

stadium field to be completed within

three years.

◗ ◗Phase One will include relocation of

the O’Connell rectangular field, addition

of athletic turf and installation of

a new six-lane competitive track, new

bleachers and press box.

◗ ◗Phase Two includes a reorienting and

improvement of the baseball field, and

the addition of field lights, subject

to the Arlington County permitting

process.

◗◗A final Phase Three, in partnership

with Arlington County Parks and

Recreation, will include improvement

of the fields located at Tuckahoe Park,

to include a new softball field and athletic

turf for the park. This phase will

occur after additional discussions with

Arlington Parks and Recreation.

Installation of Lights

A permit request has been filed for the installation

of lights on the Bishop O’Connell

property. Lights will be installed subject to

approval by the Arlington County Board.

Installation of athletic turf and lights is

expected to improve safety for athletes

and students, increase scheduling flexibility,

improve storm water drainage, and

provide substantial additional athletic

field access for practices and games for

Bishop O’Connell and future Marymount

University teams, and potentially other

Arlington community programs.

Lights would provide on average of one

additional game slot per day for the partner

schools or community athletic leagues

and/or additional practice slots. Bishop

O’Connell proposes to make the track

and other facilities available to the local

community when not scheduled for use by

other teams or activities.

How You Can Help

Many individuals and groups continue to

help advance this project by raising awareness

of and support for the much needed

redesign and revitalization of the DJO

athletic complex. Major commitments and

contributions are needed to help move

to the ground-breaking of this exciting

project.

Naming opportunities are now available.

If you are interested in helping with

this major initiative or in making a financial

contribution or pledge, please contact

Gerry Vent at gvent@bishopoconnell.org.

Green Initiatives Gain

Momentum

Last April, Bishop O’Connell officially

launched the Going Green Initiative by

identifying the following five “green”

priorities for the school: light fixture

replacement and retrofit;

water conservation and

replacement; solar panels;

heating, ventilation

and air conditioning;

and window replacements.

Last summer

O’Connell successfully

completed the first initiative,

of these five—the

light fixture replacement and

retrofit project. These new lamps not only

save energy but produce a brighter, better

environment for the 1,220 students in our

community.

The Realtors, Builders & Lenders for

O’Connell group (RBL) spearheaded this

important endeavor. They continue to

support the school’s efforts and are excited

about undertaking the next project of these

five initiatives. The RBL group is also in the

process of planning new networking opportunities

for the 2010‐11 school year.

Join the Bishop O’Connell Affinity Program

The newly formed Affinity Program initiated

through the RBL movement is a growing

program that provides an opportunity to

bring together businesses and customers in

support of Bishop O’Connell. Businesses enrolling

in this program pledge to contribute

a portion of the patronage from the Bishop

O’Connell community. In return, they will

have their support publicized in Bishop

O’Connell publications and on the Web site.

Customers will know that their purchases

of goods and services from these businesses

support Bishop O’Connell. In good and

bad economic times, the Affinity Program

provides the unique opportunity for the

community to share a portion of its fortune

with Bishop O’Connell.

Affinity eNews

In conjunction with the Affinity program,

Advancement has launched an electronic

newsletter alert this year—the Affinity

eNews. This brief news alert is sent

monthly in an effort to feature and thank

one business affinity partner in each issue.

For more information on the Affinity

Program and RBL group, please contact

Gerry Vent at gvent@bishopoconnell.org.

The Year in

REview

2009–2010

As a college preparatory high school,

we continue to develop our academic

programs around required courses that

aim to achieve desired learning goals for

each student. In pursuing these goals,

our students learn skills they will use

all their lives: how to seize upon what is

most important in what they read, how to

solve a problem, how to listen to others,

how to frame a persuasive argument, how

to organize their time, how to provide

services for others and how to walk in the

footsteps of Christ.

New Assistant Principal

for Academics

In July 2009, Sister Catherine Hill, I.H.M.

took the reigns as Bishop O’Connell’s

newest assistant principal for academics.

Valedictorian of the class of 1966, Sister

Catherine has also chaired and taught

in the science department for several

years. According to Sister Catherine,

this position allows her to help students

prepare themselves for college and life

beyond O’Connell. “High school is a time

for our students to pick up many skills and

learn many of the habits that they need in

order to be “good, productive members of

society, especially ones who express our

faith, and just make the world a better

place by being in it.”

National Merit

Recognition

Congratulations to the members of the

class of 2010 who were recognized by

the 2010 National Merit Scholarship

program. Erin McDonough was named

as a Semifinalist, and 15 classmates were

recognized as Commended Students:

Claire Arnos, Meghan Aubry, Kristin

Bowers, Michael Conrad, Ashley Fidler,

Jacqueline Filzen, Rachel Frison,

Michael Fulcher, Stephanie Langan,

Daniel Luciani, Brian Ohlhausen,

Daniel Rivera, Cynthia Romero, David

Schoembs and John Singel.

Students Excel at

Speech and Essay

Contests

Through the encouragement and mentoring

of English department faculty member

Mary Lou Wentzel, O’Connell students

actively participated in local essay and

oratorical contests during the 2009-2010

school year. Nine O’Connell students

represented the Commonwealth of Virginia

at a national level competition. Erin

McDonough won first place in the national

essay contest for the Society of Professional

Journalists, and Kristin Bowers won the

National Sons of the American Revolution

Oratorical Contest.

Students Visit Sister

School in France

Twelve O’Connell French students, along

with their French teacher, Mrs. Joan

McCarty, traveled to France in September

2009 to visit our sister high school

in Reims. This is the fourth year in a row

that O’Connell has participated in this exchange.

Both students and teacher stayed

with host families and attended classes

in the small, Catholic high school of Jean

XXIII. The students toured Reims, visited

the Cathedral that Joan of Arc visited,

saw the Basilica where the first Christian

king of France was baptized (Clovis),

tasted exquisite cuisine, saw champagne

caves. During a one day trip to Paris, the

group visited the French “White House”

(l’Elysée), the National Assembly, and

of course, other memorable sites (Eiffel

Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral). For the

students and teacher alike, this trip was

considered “life-transforming.”

O’Connell Completes

Year-long Self Study

From November 17 to November 19, 2009

Bishop O’Connell hosted a three-person

Quality Assurance Review (QAR) team

from the Southern Association of Colleges

and Schools/Council on Accreditation and

School Improvement (SACS-CASI, a division

of AdvancEd). The visit was part of a

process the school follows in seeking reaccreditation

every five years. It was a very

successful visit as the team commended the

5


Scholarship, Spirit, Service

school for, among other things, the strong

sense of community that permeates day-today

operations, the way in which the vision

of the school is known and shared by all

stakeholders, the dedication of the teachers

to the school and the students, and for

prudent financial management.

A year-long self study was conducted

within the school before the visit. Skillfully

led by English Department Chair

Diane Cerniglia, the study caused research

and reflection by all faculty and staff in the

following areas:

◗◗Vision and Purpose

◗◗Governance and Leadership

◗◗Teaching and Learning

◗◗Documenting and Using Results

◗◗Resources and Support Systems

◗◗Stakeholder Communications and

Relationships

◗◗Continuous Improvement

In addition to these seven, an eighth

standard on “Catholic Identity” provided

by the Diocese was an important and equal

component of the study.

O’Connell Students

Light Up the Stage

The theater department kicked off the

year with a holiday classic, Irving Berlin’s

“White Christmas,” which featured the

musical and dancing talents of a large crosssection

of our student population. Following

on the heels of this production, faculty

members and students joined together

for the light and fun-filled performance of

“WDJO’s 1939 Christmas Radio Program,” a

night of Christmas one-act plays and singing

in a radio station format of the 1930’s.

Then in March, the school auditorium was

transformed into an enchanted forest, as

Bishop O’Connell presented the spring

musical, “Into the Woods.”

New Athletic

Training Room

A new light-filled training room greeted

our student athletes at the beginning of

the 2009–2010 school year. The facility

features five custom treatment tables, a

two-person taping station, a new extremity

whirlpool, and ample cabinetry for

all storage needs. The room also houses

new rehabilitation equipment, including

electrical stimulation and ultrasound

units, and a wall-mounted exercise device.

“This new facility allows us to take care of

our student athletes much more efficiently

and effectively,” says Mr. Tillson, head

athletic trainer at O’Connell for more than

30 years.

The training room project was made

possible by intensive fundraising efforts

by the O’Connell Athletic Boosters. According

to Booster’s president, Mrs. Beth

Carty, this parent-run organization exists

to serve all sports teams. “This was a

natural project for us to undertake,” says

Mrs. Carty. “All athletes at O’Connell will

be positively impacted by this incredible

improvement.”

Two Recent Grads Ordained in Arlington

Bishop O’Connell High School congratulates two alumni who were recently

ordained to the priesthood on June 12, 2010. Fr. Ed Bresnahan ’99 (far right in

photo), and Fr. Jason Weber ’00 (center in photo) both took their first steps as

Arlington’s newest shepherds at the Cathedral of St. Thomas More in a Mass

celebrated by Bishop Loverde.

Three-peat for Girls

Cross Country

Soggy conditions and steady rain did not

prevent the girls cross country team from

claiming their third straight Virginia

Independent Schools (VIS) championship

at Woodberry Forest. This win came two

weeks after the girls claimed the Washington

Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC)

championship also for the third year in

a row. O’Connell dominated the WCAC

meet, with runners finishing in first,

second, fifth, sixth and seventh. These

titles crowned a winning season for the

Lady Knights, who also won the Arlington

County Championship and claimed

the Cross Country Triple Crown for the

lowest combined varsity team results at

Great Meadow, Oatlands and Octoberfest

Invitationals earlier in the year.

Boys Basketball

Claims Fifth State Title

in Nine Years

The O’Connell boys basketball team completed

an incredible stretch of five games in

five days to claim the 2010 Division 1 Virginia

Independent Schools (VIS)title. According

to Coach Joe Wootten, the Knights

run to the state title was a total team effort

with ten different team members playing in

the championship game alone.

Softball Accolades

The varsity softball team finished an

outstanding season with a 27-1 record,

claiming the Virginia Independent Schools

(VIS) state championship for the eighth

consecutive season and the WCAC title for

the seventh time. Coach Tommy Orndorff,

who has compiled an amazing record

of 529 wins vs. 62 loses at O’Connell,

was named in November 2009 to the

Greater Washington Fastpitch Softball

Commission’s Hall of Fame. In his 36 years

at Bishop O’Connell, his teams have won

14 out of 15 VIS State championships and

he has twice been named Washington Post

“Coach of the Year.”

Athletic Director

Named to Arlington

Sports Hall of Fame

O’Connell’s long-time athletic director

Darrell Snyder was recognized for his

contribution to youth sports in our area by

being inducted into the Arlington Sports

Hall of Fame. Darrell Snyder has been

involved in O’Connell sports since 1974,

first as head football coach, and then in

1980 as athletic director and also golf team

coach. He has amassed impressive winning

records for the teams he has coached, and

has been recognized as WCAC Coach of

the Year in 1994 and 2000, and Virginia

Independent Schools Coach of the Year in

1976, 1979, 1981 and 1994. The Better Sports

Club of Arlington named him Sportsman of

the Year in 1992 and Arlington Coach of the

Year in 1995.

Crew Team Rows

at Nationals

Bishop O’Connell’s rowing team had three

boats participating in Scholastic Rowing

Association of America (SRAA) Nationals

in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. over Memorial

Day weekend. The Men’s Varsity Four

boat placed fifth in the Commonwealth of

Virginia to qualify for the national competition,

where they faced off against some

of the top teams in the country. O’Connell

finished third in their first heat in Saratoga

Springs, good enough to qualify

them for the Men’s Varsity Repechage,

where they beat their previous time.

The O’Connell Men’s Junior Eight boat

and the Women’s Junior Eight were also

granted spots at the national competition

as a result of their successful performances

at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta in

Philadelphia earlier this year.

A Jam-Packed Year for

the Chaplain’s Office

Each year the Chaplain’s Office complements

the mission of Bishop O’Connell

High School, striving to bring the grace and

peace of Christ to the life of each student—

to assist young people in the challenging

task of remaining faithful to their Baptismal

calling and their Christian identity. While

it is impossible to quantify the results of

any spiritual endeavor, it is helpful, at year’s

end, to look back and see what goodness

God has offered to these students through

the efforts of so many dedicated souls.

Senior overnight retreats were held at

Mount Zion retreat center, a mountainside

setting about twenty miles south of Front

Royal in November and December. The

theme for the retreats was “Who are you and

where are you going” With time for prayer,

discussion, Mass, confession, and quiet

reflection, dozens of faculty worked together

to help prepare our seniors for the spiritual

challenges they will face in college.

An in-house retreat day was held in May

for all underclassmen. Students met for

a combined day of recollection, which

offered confession, Mass, small-group discussion

time, and an inspirational talk by

former NFL wide-receiver Chris Horn.

As always, the Chaplain’s office continued

its regular activities: offering confession

and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

two full days each week; offering Mass

each day for students and faculty; leading

the students to Washington D.C. in January

for the annual March for Life; preparing

new converts for reception of the sacraments;

welcoming pastors from around

the Diocese for Mass and lunch with their

students; offering the ever-popular peanut

butter and jelly sandwiches each day in

the chapel coffeehouse; and striving to

maintain a presence at all school events to

remind students of the continuous presence

of God in their lives.

Students and community members can also

listen to and download weekly podcasts by

Father Hudgins on the Chaplain’s Office

page of the school Web site.

Soup Drive Fills Shelves

at Christ House

For more than thirty years, O’Connell

students have been collecting soup cans to

support Catholic Charities outreach efforts

in our community. During two weeks in

the fall semester, students collected cans

of hearty soup and delivered them to their

rededication ceremony for the Sisters,

Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

(I.H.M) who live and work among us.

homeroom, where they competed against

other classrooms for prizes and bragging

rights. At the end of the week, the students

formed a Living Rosary on the football field

where they prayed for those who would

ultimately benefit from their efforts. With

the last of the cans loaded onto the truck,

student representatives traveled to Christ

House in Alexandria where they were

able to fill their shelves to an overflowing

capacity—more than 8,000 cans were

counted in the end.

The Gift of Life

Bishop O’Connell High School once again

participated in a life-saving community

service by hosting an Inova blood drive.

Because of the work of the members of

the O’Connell Health Services Club, 52

potential donors stepped forward including

students, faculty, and staff. On the day

of the drive, seniors in the club registered

and assisted donors. This year was the first

time Bishop O’Connell allowed 16-yearolds

(with parental consent) to donate

blood, and the response was overwhelming.

In the end, more than one-third of

the donors were 16. Because of the hard

work of many, O’Connell was able to meet

its donation goal. O’Connell guidance

counselor, Kathy Black, was moved by

the response from the school community.

“Having received blood to save my own

life, our family knows personally the

gratitude felt by those who are impacted

by blood donations,” she said.

Rededication for

Sisters of the I.H.M.

Every year on the feast of the Immaculate

Conception, the O’Connell school community

takes part in a special Mass and

celebration. Not only do we come together

to celebrate the feast day of the Blessed

On December 8, all Sisters of I.H.M.,

wherever they may be missioned, profess a

devotional renewal of their vows of chastity,

poverty and obedience during Mass. This

renewal is a public declaration of the Sister’s

total consecration of her life to God through

the Church in joyful service to God’s people.

This re-commitment by each Sister witnesses

to the universal call to holiness that

each baptized person has in the vocation

that she or he is called to by God. Here at

O’Connell the devotional renewal of vows by

the Sisters took place within the devotional

renewal of the baptismal promises by each

member of the Mass assembly.

O’Connell Community

Supports Haiti Relief

Efforts

On Tuesday, January 19, the school community

took up a special collection to

support earthquake victims in Haiti.

Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of

our students, teachers, staff members and

parents, Bishop O’Connell is able to write a

check for $10,000 to Medical Missionaries

to make a direct and immediate impact on

emergency relief efforts.

Medical Missionaries is a non-profit on

the ground in Haiti with more than ten

years of experience there. Our Chaplain,

Rev. James Hudgins spent time in

Haiti in 2004-2005, and has continued to

be in contact with them over the years.

In addition to this financial support,

O’Connell students provided extra hands

at the local Medical Missionaries warehouse,

where they supported preparations

and packing efforts for the medical and

surgical teams bound for Haiti.

Superdance Success

Bishop O’Connell held its 35th annual

Superdance to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis

Foundation on Saturday, March 13, 2010

from noon until midnight. The students

danced the afternoon and night away to

some great local bands and talented DJs,

while raising awareness and funds to find

a cure for this disease. In the end, over

$115,000 was raised.

Superdance has become more than just a

student event. Approximately 50 alumni

stopped by the dance for a visit and to support

our students’ efforts, and another 200

or more attended the downtown Washington,

DC alumni mixer, where over $2,000

was raised for the cause.

“Be Brave and Shave”

The newly-formed Teens Against Cancer

Club partnered with the community outreach

“Heroes Against Childhood Cancer”

to sponsor the first-ever O’Connell “Be

Brave and Shave” event, where more than

15 brave participants shaved their heads,

and an additional four females cut their

hair to donate to Locks of Love. Alumna

Grace Abi-Najm Shea ’93 was a driving

force behind alumni involvement in this

event, getting friends and family members

to participate and donating her own hair

in the process. For most of the participants,

“Be Brave and Shave” was a way

that they could honor a loved one or good

friend, and in the end, more than $7,000

was raised for this worthwhile cause.

Diamondback, as

a sports writer, and was recently named

a Philip Merrill Presidential Scholar for

2010-2011,as a top rising senior in the College

of Journalism.

This past summer, Kate was accepted

to the National Journalism Fellowship,

News21. This program is funded by the

John S. and James L. Knight Foundation

and the Carnegie Corporation as

part of the Carnegie-Knight Initiative

on the Future of Journalism Education.

News21 (which stands for news in the 21st

century) is a highly-competitive summer

newsroom program held at eight top journalism

schools. Each summer, 10 to 12 students

receive fellowships at each school

to do in-depth reporting on a special topic

and produce multimedia news stories.

Kate was one of ten students from around

the country selected to participate in

the University of Maryland study. The

University of Maryland group focused

their project on the Chesapeake Bay. They

participated in investigative reporting of

the politics of pollution in the area.

The project consisted of two major components.

The first was to test the water

quality of the tributaries of the Chesapeake

Bay. This included spots along the

Potomac, Severn and Anacostia Rivers.

What they discovered was truly mind

blowing! Three of their tested spots were

dirtier than the sample dirty toilet water

they had collected!

The second part of Kate’s project was a

report on the farming industry near the

Chesapeake Bay. Every farmer is required

to have a pollution permit in the state of

Maryland, but many can’t get one due to

the long waiting list. For some farmers this

means that they are not able to carry out

their work in a completely legal manner.

Kate’s research with News21 is just the

beginning. More than $6 billion has been

invested in the bay, yet much of the area

remains in worse condition than it did at

the beginning of clean up in 1983.

Jacqueline St. Joan (Schaeffer) is an

award-winning poet and travel writer,

teacher and lawyer. This October, she is

releasing her first novel. She is co-editor of

Beyond Portia: Women, Law, and Literature

in the United States (Northeastern University

Press). She has worked as an advocate

against domestic violence, county judge,

law professor and a child and human

rights advocate in a wide variety of both

public and private settings. Jackie’s

writings have appeared in a number

of publications including The Denver

Quarterly and Harvard Women’s Law

Journal. She has also won a number of

writing awards from various institutions

including the Rocky Mountain Women’s

Institute, the University of Colorado

Her first novel

My Sisters Made of Light

was released on Oct. 15,

2010. The book is based

on true stories of women

in Pakistan, though names

and locations have been

changed to protect the brave women

involved. Following her travels in Pakistan,

she became the Public Education Chair

of the Asian American Network Against

Abuse of Human Rights, a non-governmental

organization (NGO) in the U.S. that

works to support Pakistani efforts to end

human rights violations. Half of the proceeds

from her book sales will be donated

to SOIL which is a grass roots organization

based in Pakistan. The proceeds will be

used to pay for the construction of a safe

shelter for abused women and children.

Jackie currently teaches a course entitled

Women & the Law at Metropolitan State

College of Denver. My Sisters Made of

Light actually came out of a course that

she was teaching at the school in 2002.

The course, entitled Women Writing About

the World After September 11th, allowed

Jackie the opportunity to befriend a

Pakistani teacher based in the U.S. who

served as inspiration for the novel. For

ALUMNI

Why

We Give

Kara Sowa Barger ’80

Present Parent

I am the fourth out of five Sowa children

to graduate from Bishop Denis

J. O’Connell High School. This was a

sacrifice for my parents because my father

owned his own business and my mom was

a stay-at-home mom. When it was time for

my parents to send my brother Frank, who

is the oldest, to high school they looked

at all their options. Fairfax County had a

reputation for solid public high schools. At

the time their options for a Catholic high

school were Bishop O’Connell, Bishop

Ireton or Gonzaga. My parents wanted

us to get the same Christian values we

were learning at home from school. They

decided on Bishop O’Connell because of

its wonderful reputation.

My brother Frank graduated in 1975, my

sister Mary in 1976, my sister Kathleen

in 1977 and my brother Thomas in 1985.

I graduated in 1980. We all have great

memories of O’Connell which is one

reason my brother Frank sent his oldest

three to O’Connell and my sister Mary

sent her oldest son to O’Connell. I kept the

legacy going by sending my four children

to O’Connell. David Ryan graduated

in 2008, Riley and Ian in 2010, and my

daughter Kelsey will graduate this June as

part of the class of 2011. Since 1975 when

my brother Frank graduated, my parents

have seen six grandchildren graduate from

O’Connell.

My sister Kathleen’s son, Ian, came to live

with our family midway through his freshman

year in 2007. Kathleen died of breast

cancer in 1998. Kathleen loved O’Connell

and lived the true spirit of O’Connell all

four years she attended. There is a bust of

her in the O’Connell chapel. Ian started

O’Connell during January of his freshman

year of high school. The students at

O’Connell accepted Ian and treated him

with true Christian kindness from the

start. This is one memory of O’Connell

that I am proud of as an alumnus, past parent

and current parent. O’Connell students

care about one another and treat each

other with dignity and respect.

O’Connell also has a great and unique tradition

of allowing its alumni at graduation

at the Shrine of the Basilica to hand the

diploma to their graduating child. Handing

diplomas to David Ryan, Riley and Ian

were some of the more special moments I

remember.

My father, Frank J. Sowa II, spent many

years supporting and volunteering for

O’Connell. He was a member of the Board

of Governors for 15 years and was the

Chairman of the Finance Committee for

four years. I have tried to carry on that

legacy of volunteering for O’Connell,

through the time I have spent on the PTO

board, volunteering for sporting events for

my children, helping co-chair a committee

for the Gala/Auction and co-chairing a

committee for the All Night Grad Party.

I recently attended my 30th high school

reunion. Friendships made those many

years ago were renewed and strengthened,

which is another testament to O’Connell’s

great qualities. Friends had raised

families, made careers, and grown their

Christian values nurtured during those

four important high school years.

I am proud I attended O’Connell, proud

my children chose to continue that family

tradition, and proud of my continued

involvement with a great school that has

meant so much to me and my family.

Alex Inglese ’72

Present Parent

My O’Connell journey began in August of

1968. I was enrolled in Fairfax High School

and a week before school was to start,

my parents informed me that I would be

attending Bishop Denis J. O’Connell High

School instead (back then kids didn’t have

much to input into their education)! My

parent’s decision was an excellent one and

my brother Chris, sister Ginny and I all

benefited from our time at DJO. The education

that I received, the lifelong friendships

that were made, and the religious founda-

tion that was set all have helped me grow

into the person I am today.

After I graduated from O’Connell, I went

on to graduate from The University of

Virginia and the Darden School of Business.

There were several O’Connell alumni

in both my undergraduate and graduate

programs at UVA. It was easy to see that

O’Connell had prepared us well for college

and graduate school.

I have traveled away from Little Falls Road

and now have returned. I was married

in 2007 to Karen Carter. It is funny how

life unfolds and how if we stay true to our

values and remain close to God, our life

carries so much meaning. Karen’s first

husband, Robert (Bob) Carter, Jr. was an

O’Connell graduate from the class of 1987.

He passed away in 2002 leaving Karen

and their two sons, Robert III (Trey) and

Jack. When Karen and I met, we immediately

shared a common interest in our

love for Bishop O’Connell High School.

Bob had one brother and six sisters all of

whom graduated from Bishop O’Connell

as well. Together Karen and I have four

children. We have two girls and two boys.

Trey is currently a sophomore at O’Connell

and Jack will be a freshman at O’Connell

next year. The girls, Kristen (a junior) and

Becky (a 5th grader) are enrolled in Fairfax

County Public Schools.

Having met Karen and making the decision

to send the boys to O’Connell encouraged

me to give back to the school that has done

so much for me and so many others. I have

come across faculty, administration, and

staff who are dedicated to enriching the

lives of the students whom they teach,

mentor or coach. I have witnessed God’s

loving care through many of these dedicated

professionals. The faculty, administration

and staff know the O’Connell students

by name. Their mission is to develop the

whole student; academically, spiritually

and athletically. I am involved with the

Realtors, Lenders and Builders Committee

and the Facilities Committee. Both groups

are made up of other alumni and parents of

students who are giving their time to help

make O’Connell the best school it can be.

In a world where everyone is in a rush to

move on, it is nice to come home and stay at

O’Connell.

Sr. Catherine (Cathy) Hill, I.H.M. (’66)

Vice Principal, Academics

Nothing quite compares to growing up

in Northern Virginia. World news is local

news. Ideas flow freely; opportunities

abound. It is in this world that my life direction

and vocation took shape. Mom and Dad

loved to learn, were solid in their practice of

the Faith and totally available to the needs

of others. Sisters and teachers at St. Agnes

simultaneously challenged and nurtured

their students. The parish was family- oriented

to its core.

Then came O’Connell. Like every other

O’Connell student, teacher or parent, I

have both the common memories of the

O’Connell experience and my own unique

set of memory highlights from pilot AP

classes, basketball, forensics, SCA, good

friends and favorite teachers. High school

seniors always wonder how successful they

can be at the next level. During my freshman

year at Carnegie Tech (now Carnegie

Mellon), I knew that I could do well academically

and keep my faith beyond the setting

of my Catholic school experience. So, in

September, l967, I entered the Congregation

of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate

Heart of Mary—the IHM’s.

The spirituality of religious

life and the demanding,

fast-paced, always

unpredictable career of

teaching were a perfect

combination for me. High

School graduates from the

sixties, for all of the bad

press we often get, are men

and women committed to

service, focused on the future

and involved citizens

of the global community. I

was just one of many expressing my activism

through a religious vocation. Over the

years, my community assignments have

always involved teaching or school administration.

I worked in small towns and urban

areas, among the well-to-do and with the

poor, in areas which were strongly Catholic

and in places where Catholics were in the

minority. With each mission, I become more

convinced of the value of Catholic education

for the Church and for our nation.

In 2005, I was offered the opportunity to

reconnect to O’Connell. I joined the science

department as a chemistry teacher. Last

year, I became the Academic Dean, a job

I held previously at another

high school (Bishop McDevitt

in Harrisburg, Pa.). Exciting

new ideas are on the horizon.

Bishop Denis J. O’Connell High

School’s tradition of excellence,

challenging and nurturing, providing

opportunities for a wide

range of student interests will,

at times, take on a new face but

always maintains the same core

commitment to the mission of

providing students an education

rooted in the life of Christ and fostering the

pursuit of excellence in the whole person.

I encourage all O’Connell alumni and anyone

who has ever been a part of this community

to re-connect to O’Connell this year.

Come to visit, call a classmate, remember a

teacher and then use that simple reconnection

to explore ways that you personally can

help to provide for others what we received

– a unique experience, the foundation for a

lifetime. It can be our way of making a difference

and of saying thanks. Continue the

tradition. Provide the impetus for progress.

May it always be ”a great day to be a

Knight.” May God bless our efforts.

Programs

Special thanks to the generous

donors who established or support

the following scholarships:

Joseph W. Connolly

Scholarship

This scholarship was established in 1997

to recognize and pay tribute to Joseph

Connolly, beloved former O’Connell math

teacher. The scholarship is granted to a rising

senior who has demonstrated outstanding

academic achievement and citizenship.

Ballard Scholarship

This scholarship was established in 1993

by Mr. and Mrs. J. Vernon Ballard in memory

of their son, John Anthony Ballard ’70.

The scholarship is granted each year to

incoming O’Connell freshmen who have

demonstrated both exceptional academic

achievement and outstanding leadership

ability at the middle school.

Barry Breen Scholarship

Fund for the Visual and

Performing Arts

This scholarship was established by the

Board of Governors in 2010 as a tribute

to immediate past President Barry Breen.

Barry was a passionate supporter of the

visual and performing arts program at

Bishop O’Connell. The scholarship will

directly benefit two seniors (one boy/one

girl) who exhibit exceptional talent in the

area of visual and/or performing arts.

De La Salle Award

This scholarship was established in 2009

by Bishop O’Connell High School and is

Placement test are eligible for consideration.

Henry Heishman

The Henry Heishman was established in

memory of beloved O’Connell parent Henry

Heishman. The scholarship honors a rising

through a willingness to contribute to the

school. It honors a student who is humble,

hard working, respectful, and active in extracurricular

activities and who has plans or a

desire to attend a four-year college.

IHM Award

This scholarship was established in 2009

by Bishop O’Connell High School and is

awarded to four freshmen students who

offer spontaneous, dependable and responsible

A Gift that Keeps on

Giving—Thank you

Lawrence Arthur ’67

Something about DJO struck a chord with Lawrence

Arthur. Was it the strict dress code of jackets and

ties Was it the Catholic-based education he remembered

Or was it the academic foundation laid by the

devoted teachers In the fall of 2009, DJO received

notification from the estate of Mr. Arthur that he

wished to bequest Bishop O’Connell $10,000 to be

used as financial aid for students in need. Truly a

wonderful gesture. Thank you, Mr. Arthur, for a gift

that will keep on giving and benefit many.
