Mom & Dad
Mom: Beth, VP, Franchise Operations for Marriott
Dad: Pete, GM of the Sugarland Marriott Hotel
What Makes Them Tick: Going on vacation, to the theater,
the SPA and spending time with their children.
Nash: 10 YO sports fanatic; highly involved in baseball,
Ireland: 5 YO girly-girl; enjoys gymnastics and swimming
School: Both attend Montessori House for Elementary
Firethorne - “[We] LOVE living here. Some of our closest
friends (and our kids friends) live in the neighborhood
too. Great community where you will often find neighbors
helping neighbors just because they are “good people”.
The Scoop: Turkey (Stuffing) Day
Favorite Thanksgiving Dish: “Every Thanksgiving week we travel as a family back to Nebraska where
many aunts, uncles and cousins live. The night before Thanksgiving we all get together at one of the
“aunts” houses, drink wine (the adults that is) and make home-made stuffing for the turkey. It’s Beth’s
grandma’s recipe that continues to be passed down. Usually a 20+ pound turkey as there is typically
a gathering of about 30 of us.”
Thanksgiving Tradition: After the annual 2:00 PM Thanksgiving dinner, weather permitting, their family
enjoys a comingled game of soccer in the backyard with kids and adults. Otherwise, they stay in and
– you guessed it – watch football while playing board games. This group knows how to enjoy their
post-turkey time together!
“Thanksgiving has always been the most important family holiday of the year. It’s the one time we all
come together to celebrate and give thanks for this big, fat, Catholic family!”
When They Start: “Sometimes
we start before Thanksgiving
to get it done. With 11
siblings in Beth’s family and
over 25 grandkids each
year we pick names. The
siblings and their spouse;
the kids pick kids names.”
How They Get In
the Christmas Spirit:
“DECORATING our yard!!
LOVE, LOVE…the more
decorations the better…

ST. JOHN XXIII NEWS
St. John XXIII Students Named National Merit Semifinalists
On Wednesday, September 13 th , officials of the National Merit Scholarship
Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists
in the 63 rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. St. John XXIII College
Preparatory is pleased to announce two students have been recognized for this
achievement. Seniors Bridget Parmenter and Emily Poux were named National
Merit Semifinalists for 2018. These academically talented high school seniors
have the opportunity to continue in the competition for Finalist standings and
7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million. We applaud the
1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools across the nation who entered
the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2016 Preliminary
SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as
the initial screening of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists,
representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the
highest-scoring entrants in each state. The number of semifinalists in a state is
proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors.
St. John XXIII Seniors Named National Merit Commended Students For 2018
Timothy Gallic, principal of St. John XXIII College Preparatory, announced today
that Griffin Alexander and Keegan O’Connor have been named Commended
Students in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of
Commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation
(NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to these
scholastically talented seniors.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized
for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the
2018 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students
place among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who
entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National
Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). “The young men and women
being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential
for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These students
represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as
well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital
to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this
recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage
them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

THE HAVANA NIGHTS GALA WAS A SUCCESS!
Although we had to make big changes in the wake of Hurricane Harvey,
the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School had a successful night raising
money for the school. We danced the night away to live Cuban music
played by the band “Que Nota!” Mr. Gerry Donohue was honored for his
time and dedication to Catholic education. Thank you to our supporters
who attended, sponsored and help plan the event! We appreciate you!
