deAr AluMni,FriendS And FAMilyGreetings from the Alumni Association! Throughout this issueof the Miner Messenger, you will see the many contributionsand success stories of our fellow alumni. We can be proudof these individuals and of all our alumni who achieve extraordinarythings on a day-to-day basis.This issue also highlights our All-School reunion held June20. What a great first-time event it was, and we look forwardto it growing to include even more ofyou in years to come. Special thanks toBob Ferrari ’54 who worked tirelessly togather the alumni of the “Old School”and bring so many dear friends togetherfor the weekend.His efforts in contacting those earliestgraduates is invaluable to the Alumni Association,as one our biggest challenges isstaying connected with our alumni base.To address this challenge we began theMissing Miner campaign last winter at www.bishopmanogue.org/alumni/MissingMiners. Visit the site, and if you know theaddress or email of one of our Missing Miners, let us know! Justemail email@example.com.There are other ways you can help us improve our events andprograms, as well. For instance, we would love to have specificcontact representatives for each graduating class to help us reachout to alumni, and to tell the Manogue story to prospectivestudents and other constituents. We will also be looking fornew Alumni Association Board members in the near future. ifyou would be willing to help in either of these capacities, pleaseemail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.As always, thanks for your continued support of our alma mater. ihope you are enjoying some happy and relaxing summer days!– Stacey Ting-Senini ‘81President,Bishop Manogue Catholic HighSchool Alumni AssociationBob Ferrari ’54 Vice PresidentKathleen rossi ’03 SecretaryJared rossi ’02 TreasurerChris Healy ’74 Alumni LiaisonChris Benna ’84 Parent LiaisonJulie lazovich Trotta ‘87 Committee Memberdebbie rossi Advisorilove this issue of the Miner Messenger because it celebratesour most recent graduates, our very first graduates, andevery graduate in between.Our first-ever All-School reunion in June was a big successand we were honored to have so many alumni on campus sharingand looking back on their years at Bishop Manogue.Our Class of 2015 Commencement ceremonyin May was also a memorable evening…sadbecause we were saying goodbyeto 154 amazing young people, and happybecause we know they are destined andwell prepared for exciting futures.in preparing my speech for Commencement,i asked the faculty and staffto each come up with one word theywould use to describe the Class of 2015.needless to say i got quite a variety ofanswers, just a few of which were: Fun, entertaining, involved,respectful, Friendly, Caring, Thoughtful, Ambitious, independent,Creative, Compassionate, Service-oriented, inspiring,Faith-filled.These words say a lot not only about the Class of 2015, butabout all of our alumni. They say that Manogue graduates livelife to the fullest; that they are doers; that they care for oneanother and for the people around them; that they know thatsuccess is worth the effort; and that they have God in theirhearts and in their lives.That last one means so much. One of the things i love aboutworking at a Catholic school is listening to the students talkabout their faith and discuss God in their lives. There areso many challenges in today’s society, but Manogue studentsknow they can turn to their faith for support and guidance.A graduation isn’t just an opportunity to recognize accomplishmentsand achievements, it’s a chance to pause and take stockbefore stepping out into the next phase of life. The graduates ofBishop Manogue Catholic High School have left here preparedto be leaders and innovators in our community, and toembrace the challenges of future education, careers, family life,volunteerism, faith, and citizenship. They have also left knowingthat they are always welcome back.The word i chose for the Class of 2015 was Family. Becausethey and every other alumni will always be a part of and lovedby the Manogue Family.– rick Harris, Principalsummer 2015 bishopmanogue.org3

AluMni SPOTliGHTSantos Finds His nicheby neal Patrick Healy ‘11said former Manogue dean of StudentsBri Thoreson. “Without fail he would justhave a big grin and always had somethingfunny to say. i could always count onJarred to make me smile.”But for every light-hearted story, there wasanother more serious. Fights outside ofschool, lack of motivation for academics,and a negative attitude had Santos’ futurein doubt.“i just liked being a smart aleck,” Santossaid. “There were a lot of times i gotnervous that i was going to be kicked outand i knew my dad wasn’t going to be okwith that. it took a toll on him, and hehas some gray hairs that he wouldn’t haveright now if it weren’t for me.”But then, Santos found something tomotivate him. He found it in the ring.last April, nevada boxer and 2011Bishop Manogue graduate JarredSantos stepped out of the ring as the132-pound national Collegiate BoxingChampion. Finding his father Herb Santos,Jr. ‘81 in the crowd, Jarred embracedhim, and uttered the words, “We did it,dad. We did it.” Santos experienced purejoy that day, not only because he beat hisopponent in the ring, but also because hebeat the opponents within himself.inappropriate doodles on the whiteboard,well-time sound effects. These theatrics—and more—made Santos an entertainingpart of the Manogue lore.“As his teacher i would have to tell him,‘Mr. Santos you need to come in withyour shirt tucked in and be ready to go,’”He expressed an interest in boxing, sohis father called in a couple of favorsand midway through high school, Santosbegan practicing with the nevada boxingteam. Once Santos learned the tricks ofthe trade, success came naturally.“Jarred sparred for the first time andi get a call from the coaches,” said hisfather. “They told me that the kid he wassparring quit. Jarred gave the kid sucha beating that he’s no longer boxing forsummer 2015 bishopmanogue.org8For years, Santos had carried a feelingof insecurity, and says he began highschool lacking confidence and afraid tobranch out.“i was nervous to be around all theother Catholic school kids,” Santos said.“i wasn’t very popular at Our lady ofthe Snows and i knew i wasn’t goingto be very popular at Manogue either,so i just tried to get through it the bestway possible.”One way he coped was adopting the roleof class clown--pizza delivered to class,Santos with father Herb '81 and mother Kimberly. The Santos siblings, Hannah ’14, Jarred and Joey ‘09
AluMni SPOTliGHTunr. They told me that they thoughtJarred was special and he could do somespecial things.”The “special things” the coaches sawin Santos came to fruition for him ina big way this year: He won the 2015national Collegiate Boxing Championship,was named to the All-AmericanCollegiate Boxing Team, was chosen asthe most outstanding fighter of the 2015national Collegiate Boxing ChampionshipTournament, and will be inductedto the nevada Boxing Hall of Fame inlas Vegas as the 2015 Amateur Fighterof the year.Santos finished his college career as athree-time All American and three-timeWestern regional Collegiate BoxingChampion (2013, 14 and 15), and withfour trips to the Collegiate Boxingnational Tournament where he was abronze medalists in 2013, a silver medalistin 2014, and a gold medalist in 2015.This kind of success was unimaginableto Santos before boxing.have a chip on my shoulder. i don’t haveto prove anything to anyone. Boxingsaved me from becoming what a lot ofpeople thought i was going to become.”Set to graduate next december witha degree in art and a minor in psychology,Santos plans to continue toparticipate with the boxing program asa coach, and to pursue his interests incounseling children.“i want to help kids like me and kids thatare worse than me in the sense that theythink they won’t amount to anything,”Santos said. “if you put their mindset inbeing good and focused on a goal thatcan be accomplished, they can becomesome of the best people. i want to focuson helping people, especially kids. That’simportant to me.”Santos attributes his success to the foundationManogue gave him.“Manogue helped with my morals and values,”Santos said. “i have some friends thathave done some things that i would neverdo to somebody. That’s the little differencein having religious morals and values andseeing people who don’t have them.”Jarred Santos’ success is one that theBishop Manogue community can beproud of. With his boxing career at a closeand his future on a positive path, it’s easyto look back and say that his life played outaccording to a plan: the fight inside himleading to boxing, the doodles leading toan art degree, and the determined troublemakingleading him to work with troubledchildren. But hindsight is 20/20. Santoshad to overcome his own demons to getwhere he is today. As his father said, hehad to “find his niche” and when he did,everything else fell into place.Neil Patrick Healy is a friend and classmateof Jarred and they were both frequent visitorsto the office of Ms. Thoreson. Neil is currentlystudying abroad in San Sebastián, Spain andis set to graduate next May from the Universityof Nevada Reynolds School of Journalism asa Communications Major. He hopes to work insports journalism.“All throughout high school i thoughti would just be breaking rocks for aliving, or that i would get locked up,”Santos said. “i never pictured myselfas a businessman or being successful. ithought i was the bottom-of-the-barreltype person, and i’ve grown out of that.i’ve learned to expect more of myself.”Boxing not only helped Santos recognizesuccess and expect it from himself, italso helped him quell some of the angerthat plagued him when he was younger.“Boxing taught me to keep my composure,”Santos said. “i’m not going out andfighting people anymore because i don’tSantos by Jason Bean of the Reno Gazette-Journalsummer 2015 bishopmanogue.org9

Three campuses, six decades and 200-plusSummer 2015 bishopmanogue.org12alumni came together at Bishop Manogue’sinaugural All-School Reunion on June 20.
From Manogue's very first graduatingclass of 1950, to recent graduates,the years were well-represented.Our All-School Reunion kicked offwith a fascinating tour of the campusby Jim Toner, alumni parent, past President,and unofficial historian of BishopManogue Catholic High School. Andalthough none of those taking the tourwent to school in the current building(completed in 2004), Mr. Toner pointedout details throughout that connected thecampuses and the generations. From thestained glass and steeple of the originalChrist the Teacher Chapel to the paintinghonoring a lost member of the Class of’61, the trip around the campus was a tripback in time for many participants.“Old School” alumni were well-representedat the event, and we were honoredto have three attendees from the Classof 1950—Manogue’s very first graduatesand a tight-knit clan of 14 students.Their campus was on the site of the FlickRanch on the east edge of Reno, andConnie Waggoner Sowell remembersthe bucolic setting of her high schoolyears fondly. “It was just beautiful,” shesaid, “with the river running by and thetrees.” The ranch house that served asthe school is currently slated for demolitionto make way for flood planning, butthere is a group in town, www.flick-Ranchproject.com, fighting to have thebuilding moved and restored.“The School on the Hill”—moniker for theValley Road campus that housed the schoolfrom 1957 to 2003—had good representationas well, most notably in the amazing enter-tainment. The Jason King band, fronted byJason King Roxas ’88, brought their bluesysounds to our alumni patio, where partierstapped their toes to the tunes and huntedfor “their brick” among the more than 5,000alumni names inscribed on the pavers.With good food, good friends and goodmemories, our first All-School reunion hadall the elements of a Manogue tradition-inthe-making.

Cockrum is the great-great-great grand niece of our namesake BishopPatrick Manogue, and has donated his 1878 Steinway Victorian upright piano tothe school.The Bishop, it seems, was very accomplished. He not only spoke more than 10languages, but also played several instruments, including violin, guitar, organ,banjo, and piano…THIS piano! It arrived on campus on a hot June afternoon,and was gingerly coaxed out of the trailer and in to Christ the Teacher Chapel,where it will not be merely housed, but played and appreciated.Cockrum will also be donating the Bishop’s special family Bible, and we lookforward to displaying and caring for both of these historical treasures thatmeant so much to our namesake.

Justhow special he was is summed up movingly in the observationsof his classmate John Brodeur:More than a friend, Wayne was an inspiration. Alwaystolerant of others, and forgiving when others weren’t tolerantof him. Always open to ideas and to adventures andeven risk. Always thinking that things (and people) willturn out to be just fine, even against the odds or when itwas tough out there.When you entered Wayne’s World, it was a non-judgmentzone. Never cynical, critical, biting, nasty. Not Wayne,ever. There were times that racial remarks (some directedat him) took a toll, tested his patience and basic belief inhuman kindness. He did not waver—the twin pillars ofREMEMBERING WAyNE LUCKADOO ‘68steeled determination and gentleacceptance prevailed.We lost the gentle soul and toughman with an open heart, bigsmile, tall stature, competitivespirit, athletic talent. A trueAmerican hero, and a friend, abrother, a son, the diligent student,the gifted three-sport athlete,the strong and proud Marine.Wayne Luckadoo, truly one of the few.In Wayne’s memory, and in the belief that money should never get inthe way of promise and potential, the Luckadoo family and a smallgroup of advocates joined to create the Wayne Luckadoo MemorialScholarship.
