The DRAGONMagazine - Bishop O'Dowd High School

60 Wonderful Years Celebrated

Alumni from throughout the decades,

past and current faculty and staff, as well

as current students and their families,

gathered on the Bishop O’Dowd High

School campus on March 25 to celebrate

the school’s 60th anniversary.

The whole event was first class. So

many alums kept telling me how grateful

they were for the gift of their O’Dowd

education, both academically and for its

values and the self discipline it instilled.

It was clear that O’Dowd’s reputation

of excellence and care came in large part

from the lives and skills of our graduates,”

President Steve Phelps said.

The day began with a Mass held in

the large gymnasium concelebrated by

former faculty member and O’Dowd

Regent Fr. Jay Matthews, former faculty

member Fr. Leo Dummer, OMI, and

former principals Fr. Frank Wagner,

OMI, and Fr. Ronald Schwenzer, CSB.

Deacon Earl JOHson ’61 and Boyer and

Joan August, both members of the Class

of 1956, also participated.
