From the

PRESIDENT

Greetings Dragon Alumni, Parents and Friends,

I have the pleasure to share with you that O’Dowd is truly thriving ... and that

our best days are ahead.

O’Dowd first opened its doors in 1951 and 67 years later, we owe a debt of

gratitude to everyone – teachers, staff members, members of the religious

orders who’ve served here, parents, alumni, volunteers, donors – who has

helped us become the thriving school and community we are today.

The last 12 years have been especially transformational under the leadership

of the late Steve Phelps. Today, O’Dowd is at enrollment capacity, has

a waitlist for admissions, and features academic and co-curricular programs

that prepare our students for college and beyond, with tuition assistance

and support programs that ensure we can extend our Catholic mission and

charism-values to as many students as possible. We learned a lot from Steve

and have a vision for building on his achievements and taking O’Dowd to

even greater heights.

Our institutional priorities position us boldly for future success:

first, deepening our commitment to our charism and our

values-based education; second, driving educational excellence

and innovation; and third, seizing unprecedented opportunities

to optimize our facilities.

In this magazine, please enjoy the articles that celebrate our life and mission

around these three priorities and note the outstanding financial support we

received from our community this past year to further these priorities. The

work at O’Dowd is animated by the spirituality that flows from the charism,

thereby expressing our Catholic identity. We are emboldened by pursuing

transformative educational strategies for the growth of our students. O’Dowd

will be sustainably modernized to enhance the student experience by planning,

funding and building the first phase of our campus master plan.

Thank you for engaging with us as we continue to celebrate our history and

build on our solid foundation in order to become the Catholic high school

our students most need for the complex world they boldly face. Toward that

end, I am grateful for your investment in and advocacy on behalf of O’Dowd.

Best,

James Childs, MA, MEd

Legacy Starts

AT O’DOWD

64th Annual Commencement

“The greatest use of a life is to spend it for

something that outlasts it.” -William James

O’Dowd Board of Regents member and

featured commencement speaker Ellie Knauss

used this quote to deliver an inspiring call to

action for O’Dowd’s Class of 2018 - your legacy

starts now.

Don and Ellie Knauss

Fall/Winter Magazine 2018 // 3


From left to right: Maia Johnson, Andi Wiley, Kameela Hall, Pablo Samoilys, Sabine Schroepfer and Arden Fortaleza.

“No, not the inherit money from your great uncle type of

legacy,” she said. “Legacy is something that leaves a consequence,

has an effect and produces a result. In short, something

you accomplish in your life that makes a difference.

Some of you have already begun to form your legacies with

what you have done at O’Dowd.”

Ellie and her husband, Don, were honored at O’Dowd’s 64th

annual commencement with the Cor Unum Award.

Named for the school’s motto, “One Heart in Christ,” the

Cor Unum Award is Bishop O’Dowd High School’s highest

honor. It is presented each year to select members of the

O’Dowd community whose lives and work embody the

school’s Mission to create a more just, joyful, and sustainable

world.

The couple was recognized for their steadfast commitment

to providing a Catholic education to as many deserving

students as possible through transformative gifts in support

of financial aid, and service to the mission of Catholic

education. Ellie has been a member of the Board of Regents

since 2012 and two of their four children - Alec ’10 and Kara

’13 – are alums.

“You are experiencing firsthand, the impact

of legacy. You, O’Dowd’s graduating

class of 2018, are living the legacy of a

man who has been called a futurist in the

field of Catholic education,” Ellie said.

“Of course, I am speaking of Dr. Stephen

Phelps, the president of Bishop O’Dowd

High School for the last 12 years.

Dr. Phelps’ job? Mentor, teacher, coach

and president. But his legacy? Service to

others focused on developing confident,

capable and successful young people –

like every graduate in this room!”

Other commencement speakers included valedictorian

Yujia Li and salutatorian Ruby Perez.

Class of 2018 Gives Back

Inspired by their four transformational years at O’Dowd,

members of the Class of 2018 contributed $108,000 to

provide the gift of an O’Dowd education to the next generation.

Senior Class Philanthropy Officers: Anna Dubon, Jayla Goler, Luke

Ditzler, Kameela Hall and Sabine Schroepfer led the effort.

Opportunity. That’s how Sophia Rodriguez ’18 sums up

her O’Dowd experience.

While at O’Dowd, Sophia had the opportunity for academic

and personal growth, leadership development, and

connecting more deeply with her cultural heritage.

Accepted to several top universities and colleges, the

4.0-plus National Merit Commended student and National

Hispanic Scholar is now attending UCLA, where she

plans to major in political science. She was inspired to

explore this field after taking Bonnie Sussman’s AP U.S.

Government & Politics and AP Comparative Government

& Politics courses and getting a better grasp on political

ideologies, processes and behavior.

“I find the ‘why’ part of political science very interesting.

And I like learning about all the intricacies because if you

can understand the systems that are in place it’s much

8 // Dragon


easier to figure out how to help people and effect social

change,” she said, adding that she is considering a career

in law.

As a leader in Latinos Unidos, O’Dowd’s cultural club that

celebrates Hispanic heritage, Sophia relished the opportunity

to learn more about her cultural heritage and perform

folkloric dance at the annual Multicultural Assembly.

As a member of the senior Campus Ministry Team, helping

plan Masses, retreats and charity drives, Sophia also led a

collaborative effort between CMT and Latinos Unidos for

an All Saints – Día de los Muertos Mass. “It was awesome

bringing both of those groups together to do something

new,” she said. “We combined these two holidays to remember

important people who have passed, as well as the

communion of saints and the living saints in our lives.”

Drama provided another significant growth opportunity

for Sophia, and she participated in seven shows, including

last spring’s production of Hair.

During her time at O’Dowd, Sophia was also a member of

the water polo and swimming teams and the Feminism and

Unity clubs, and served as vice president for Dumbledore’s

Army (the Harry Potter Club).

“Being able to have all these opportunities was awesome.

I found I didn’t have to stick to the things I had always

done,” she said.

“My O’Dowd experience has been

empowering. It helped me figure out

where I fit in the world and find my

voice on issues that I want to speak

out about,” she said.

The Rodriguez’s are a Legacy family extraordinaire! The

first generation includes Marin Rodriguez ’83, Dante Rodriguez

’84, Iliad Rodriguez ’85, Petra Rodriguez Camacho

’87, Tyr Rodriguez ’88, Qiqi Rodriguez ’90, Forte

Rodriguez ’92, Aria Rodriguez Vadney ’94 and Skimra

Rodriguez Sherbondy ’00. Iden Rodriguez attended

O’Dowd from 1998-99.

Second generation includes: Lily Rodriguez ’17 (daughter

of Dante Rodriguez), Tyler Engleman ’17 (son of Qiqi

Rodriguez), Sophia Rodriguez ’18 (daughter of Marin Rodriguez),

Sebastian Camacho ’19 (son of Petra Rodriguez

Camacho), Roman Rodriguez ’20 (son of Dante Rodriguez),

Hannes Rodriguez ’22 (son of Marin Rodriguez)

and Sierra Camacho ’23 (daughter of Petra Rodriguez

Camacho).

If Kameela Hall ’18 could have looked into the future as an

8th grader and caught a glimpse of the high school senior

she was to become she would have been pleased. Just a few

years ahead was a mature, socially aware, empathetic and

academically engaged young woman.

Kameela went “all in” when she arrived at O’Dowd, diving

into broad range of activities. She played volleyball, served

on the Black Student Union Executive Council and was a

Dragon Ambassador Captain.

She was also a member of the National Honor Society

and over the course of her time at O’Dowd completed an

amazing 260 hours of community service, and served as

a Senior Philanthropy Officer, leading fundraising for the

Class of 2018 Senior Class Gift campaign and helping

establish a life-long legacy for their class.

And she took a host of Advanced Placement and Honors

classes, including AP Comparative Government & Politics,

AP Psychology, AP Human Geography and Honors

Chemistry.

CULTIVATING

LEADERSHIP SKILLS

AND LEAVING A

LIFE-LONG LEGACY

“My O’Dowd experiences unlocked the potential that I had

not been able to unlock on my own,” she said.

Kameela was encouraged in her growth by O’Dowd faculty

and staff, particularly Academic Support Liaison Malik

McCord. “He recognized my potential as a person, not just

a student,” she said. “He always pushed me to articulately

express my thoughts, and made me see how I could be

someone who really made a difference on this campus and

beyond.”

Today Kameela is a confident, yet empathetic leader. “You

just can’t stand in front of a group and say ‘follow me.’ You

have to recognize the fact that people have different points

of view and help them come to a consensus,” she said. “I

love it when people say their point of view was shifted

because of something I said or how I acted.”

Kameela is grateful that O’Dowd provides forums for

students to respectfully voice their opinions. “That was a

huge part of why I was never afraid to speak out and to try

to bring people together,” she said. “And I feel like that’s

why we have so many leaders coming out of this school.”

Because of her O’Dowd experience, Kameela feels the

world is her oyster. “I am going into college feeling on top

of the world and ready to make a difference,” she said.

Kameela was admitted to Northern Arizona University’s

Honors College and is double majoring in Business Management

and Marketing.

Transferring to O’Dowd as a junior, Pablo Samoilys ’18

wasn’t sure what to expect.

Like most transfer students, Pablo worried about fitting

in socially and was concerned about how he would handle

O’Dowd’s challenging college prep curriculum.

On the social side, Pablo found the transfer experience

surprisingly easy. “Everyone was really welcoming. All

the teachers were immediately there to help me become a

part of the community, and within a few days I had made

friends,” he said.

But because Pablo had moved to the United States from

Kenya, getting adjusted to the American education system

presented a bigger challenge. “I came in not knowing the

basic things. I barely understood GPA scores, and MLA

format was completely new to me. On my early assignments

I struggled, but my teachers were pretty forgiving

and they gave me opportunities to redo things.”

Pablo Samoilys ’18

TRANSFORMATIONAL

EXPERIENCES LEAD

TO PERSONAL

DEVELOPMENT

Pablo dove in to his new school community, serving as a

Dragon Ambassador Captain, playing tennis, and leading

the Photography Club.

His most transformational O’Dowd experience, however,

centered on his participation in the Kairos retreat program

– first as a retreatant during his junior year.

“The whole experience was pretty amazing. I came back

from that three-day retreat with a lot of new friends that I

felt I had known for a lifetime,” he said. “Before that retreat

I felt OK at O’Dowd, but afterwards O’Dowd really felt like

home.”

Profoundly inspired, Pablo applied to be a Kairos student

leader, and, as a senior, led a small group of junior students

in reflection and self-discovery, helping them deepen their

relationships with family, friends and God.

Pablo is currently attending UC Davis where he is considering

majoring in product or industrial engineering

and pursuing a career in high tech – perhaps focusing on

prototyping and design.

“O’Dowd has played a really big role in my development

into a young adult,” Pablo said. “When I moved to the United

States I still considered myself an adolescent. These

two years have refined me into the person I am today and I

truly appreciate that.”

Added Pablo, “O’Dowd prepares you academically, but also

guides and supports you in your personal development.”

Meridith ’92, Avery ’22 and Jerry Forristal ’90.

The Forristals – Meridith Armstrong Forristal ’92

and Jerry Forristal ’90 – are excited to have their

daughter, Avery ’22, continue the family tradition

of attending O’Dowd. And they’re not alone. The

Forristals are among 34 Legacy Families in the Class

of 2022.

“Our daughter grew up hearing the stories

of our days at O’Dowd. She has seen, and

is a part of, the many friendships that were

forged in the halls and on the fields of

O’Dowd so when it came time to pick a high

school there really wasn’t a question about

where she’d go. There’s no other place for

our family where the balance of academic

rigor, athletics, diversity and service blend

to create the ideal high school experience,”

Meridith said.

“We continue to see a high number of legacy families

apply and enroll, a testament to the strength of our

program and faith that students who leave O’Dowd

and go into the world have positive outcomes

beyond high school. Our values driven curriculum

has always been pivotal to an O’Dowd education and

families keep coming back,” Director of Admissions

Kerryn Pincus said.

O’Dowd’s New

President:

JAMES CHILDS

A familiar face has assumed a new role at O’Dowd.

Former Principal James Childs, M.A., M.Ed., became

O’Dowd’s second president on July 1, succeeding Steve

Phelps who passed away unexpectedly last December.

Childs was initially attracted to O’Dowd because of the

common perspective he shared with Phelps about Catholic

education. “We engaged on a daily basis about building the

future of O’Dowd. I will work hard to honor his vision and

legacy, and my resolve is to continue and intensify the efforts

of his distinguished leadership at O’Dowd, to move our

school forward with the same passion and grace with which

he approached his educational ministry,” he said.

Childs was selected after a comprehensive national search

process, which was led by Interim President and Search Committee

chair Kim Walsh and involved a committee representing

all constituencies of the school, including the Board of

Regents, alumni, faculty, staff, current and past parents.

President Childs gives communion to Grace Wallingford ’19.

“I am deeply honored and excited

to take on the responsibilities and

challenges as the president of Bishop

O’Dowd High School, and feel very

fortunate to be surrounded by

extraordinary leadership and support

as we embark upon the next leg of our

grand expedition together,” he said.

Childs and his wife, Kate, have four children, including Sophia

who is a member of the Class of 2020.

James

CHILDS

PRESIDENT


Building on a Legacy of Innovation:

LOOKING BOLDLY INTO

OUR SCHOOL’S FUTURE

Building a Culture of Care and a

Framework for Educational Excellence

At the heart of the Catholic school educational philosophy

is a cultural commitment to care for students, ensuring

that every child is seen as an individual. This results in the

formation of students who make of their gifts, talents, competencies,

skills, and passions a distinctive gift of Catholic

education to society. We recently sat down with O’Dowd’s

new President James Childs to talk about the long-range

planning process underway at O’Dowd, the educational

philosophy that will inform that planning process, and

the role of the Western Catholic Education Association

(WCEA) accreditation process upon which the school is

embarking this fall. To gain deeper insight into the accreditation

process, we also sat down with Religion teacher and

Retreat Director Michael Downs, who is coordinating this

endeavor. Visit our website for more detailed information

on the WCEA accreditation process - https://www.bishopodowd.org/wcea-accreditation-news/

Childs expressed that O’Dowd is committed to ensuring

that all students feel seen. “At O’Dowd, ‘seeing every child’

presents as every student knowing that they are cared for.

In the context of relationships with our students, we build

developmental competencies, cultivate resiliency and

empathy, and encourage their sense of responsibility in

and for the world,” he said. “We are educating our students

to provide for the common good in a much more impactful

way, building a more just, joyful, and sustainable future,

just as our missions indicates.”

Active visioning has taken place over the past two years in

anticipation of the accreditation process, with an eye towards

informing school priorities and areas of focus for the

future. This work has included Academic Council sessions,

Charism reflection work to deepen alignment, the School

Climate Survey, as well as discussions and workshops with

faculty and staff, explained Childs. The WCEA process

maps the work already completed at O’Dowd over the last

few years to this formal process to discern any further

opportunities in meeting our goals. Accreditation with its

explicit workflows and third party involvement expands

our inventory of knowledge to inform planning and helps

to ensure a quality educational program as well as alignment

with best practices in Catholic education.

“The strategic imperatives for student growth emerging

out of this comprehensive planning and accreditation

process will take into consideration the developmental

realities of teens, instructional strategies that expand

their ability to learn - with sensitivity to equity, access and

inclusion - overall student health and wellness, as well as

leadership development,” explained Childs.

“O’Dowd is at the leading edge of Catholic education.

Innovation over the years has focused

on the implementation of programs that distinguish

and define O’Dowd, such as Academic

Support and the Living Lab. In this next phase

of O’Dowd’s evolution, innovation will continue

to be at the forefront of O’Dowd planning with

an eye towards sustainable growth and management,”

Childs said.

In addition to innovating how the culture of care presents

at O’Dowd throughout all facets of the O’Dowd experience,

this will include operational and technology strategies as

well as program developments that enable better outcomes

and efficiency, namely, how we utilize resources (people,

space, time) in creative ways to meet our needs.

Stay tuned for more information on planning and innovation

Michael

GOORJIAN ’89


Michael Goorjian ’89 Seeks

What Lies Beyond the Stars

Though Michael Goorjian ’89 bought the novel Demian,

by Herman Hesse, that was assigned reading in Debra

Kolsrud’s English class at O’Dowd, he never got around

to reading it. He skimmed it well enough to muddle

through a test, and then moved on.

Several years later, Goorjian read the book in earnest –

and he was captivated. He immersed himself in other

philosophical fiction works, including another of Hesse’s

books, Steppenwolf, and W. Somerset Maugham’s The

Razor’s Edge.

Recently the Emmy-award winning actor, filmmaker and

screenplay writer added a new artistic discipline to his

resume – novelist. In 2016, Goorjian completed the first

book of a trilogy he was commissioned to write for Hay

House Publishing - What Lies Beyond the Stars, set in San

Francisco’s technology industry and the rural coastal

town of Mendocino. “There are a lot of facets to it,” says

Goorjian. “In a way, the story is rooted in exploring the

idea of human attention and how it’s become a currency.

But the exploration of the idea is woven into a story

that is based on Dante’s Divine Comedy and the relationship

between Dante and Beatrice.”

He is currently finishing the second book, Beyond the

Fractured Sky, which will be released in 2019, as well as

directing an Armenian-based film.

At O’Dowd, Goorjian participated in Drama for four

years, starring in productions such as Fiddler on the

Roof and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and believes

his O’Dowd experience was pivotal in his professional

success.

“I learned from (Drama Director) Dennis

Kohles ’69, who was one of my first mentors, the

high level of discipline that is required for this

profession. And that has been the engine beneath

what has made me successful,” Goorjian

said.

theater credits are lengthy – dating back to his first role

as a dancer in the Disney film Newsies, which he landed

while a student at UCLA School of Theatre, Film and

Television.

His favorite roles include Heroin Bob in the indie film

SLC Punk and the autistic teenager David in David’s

Mother – a portrayal that earned him an Emmy. As a director,

Goorjian achieved widespread recognition for his

first major independent film, Illusion, which he wrote,

directed and starred in alongside Hollywood legend Kirk

Douglas.

It was through promoting this project at film festivals

that Goorjian met Gay Hendricks, a psychologist, writer

and teacher in the field of personal growth and relationships,

who asked him to produce and direct the documentary

You Can Heal Your Life starring internationally

renowned metaphysical author and teacher Louise Hay

for Hay House Publishing. He subsequently worked on

The Shift, starring best-selling author Wayne Dyer.

“I had a screenplay that I was working on and I asked

the CEO of Hay House to read it so I could get his opinion,”

Goorjian said. “He asked me if I was interesting in

turning the screenplay into a novel and I said, ’Sure!’

Moving from writing a screenplay to writing a novel definitely

was a jump, but the screenplay was essentially a

skeleton that I could build the novel upon.”

Goorjian says if there is one common thread in all of his

artistic endeavors it is storytelling. “I spent years studying

mythology, fairy tales and folklore,” he said. “With

novel writing, however, I can dig into deeper philosophical

questions. It’s slow art instead of fast art. Slow art

addresses more complicated thematic aspects of life

and hopefully sticks around longer.”

Looking ahead, Goorjian is interested in exploring

writing non-fiction, specifically philosophy and social

commentary, and doing occasional acting and directing

projects.

Goorjian is probably best known for his role as Justin,

Neve Campbell’s love interest on the Golden Globe

winning series Party of Five, but his television, film and

Jasmine

GUILLORY ’93


Jasmine Guillory ’93 Finds Creative

Outlet in Writing

From the time she was young, Jasmine Guillory ’93

had her sights set on being a lawyer. She majored in

history at Wellesley College, graduated from Stanford

Law School, and then clerked for a year at the Federal

District Court in San Francisco before joining a law firm

where she immersed herself in the world of securities

and intellectual property.

Several years later, Guillory moved on to the non-profit

world, contributing her legal expertise at several

local foundations. She loved her work, but desired a

creative outlet. Baking, knitting, singing? She liked all

those things, but they just didn’t hit the mark. Then it

came to her – writing. “I’ve always loved reading, so I

thought I’d give writing a try,” Guillory said.

She dove right in, and began to write for a few hours

every night when she got home from work. She completed

a young adult novel, received “positive rejections,”

and wrote half of another novel in the same

genre before finding her niche – romance adult fiction.

“My writing voice worked better writing for adults than

teenagers,” she said.

Her first venture in the new genre was a smash hit. The

Wedding Date, published on January 30, 2018, was

named Target’s Diverse Book of the Month for February,

one of Elle magazine’s “21 Books We’re Most Excited

to Read in 2018,” a Romance Novel of the Month

for February by a Washington Post reviewer, and a USA

Today Bestseller to name a few of the accolades.

Set in the Bay Area, the novel details the story of an

interracial hero and heroine trapped in a hotel elevator

who wind up going to a wedding together and then try

to face the challenges of a long-distance relationship.

Guillory included a shout out to several of her

former teachers, including O’Dowd’s Bonnie

Sussman and the late Brad Goodhart, in the

acknowledgement of the book. “None of you were

writing teachers, but you all taught me how to

write,” she wrote.

Her second novel, The Proposal, was due out in September,

and she is currently writing a third. She also

pens pop culture essays from time to time. And, she is

still working as a lawyer.

Guillory’s not sure when she might be able to devote

her time solely to writing. “You get an advance for a

book, which comes in three installments, and then

you get royalties twice a year. But you never know how

much the royalties are going to be until they come, so

it’s good to have a regular paycheck,” she said.

Guillory is still getting used to seeing her book on

bookshelves.

“It’s been years of ups and downs with my writing, and

thinking that no one would care about my book. Now

people are buying it and seem to be really liking it.

That is just so exciting to me,” she said.

When it comes to stepping out of your comfort zone to

do something that you love, Guillory advises go for it.

“I know so many people who I went to law school with

who are doing completely different things than they

planned. Lots of people find their passion later in life,

or decide they have more than one passion,” she said.

Maria

ZIZKA ’06

Maria Zizka ’06 Creates a Recipe

for Professional Success

When Maria Zizka ’06 began co-authoring a column

on food and culture for U.C. Berkeley’s The Daily Californian,

she couldn’t have imagined how the experience

would change her life trajectory.

A Biology major, Zizka was taking pre-med classes

and contemplating becoming a doctor.

Today, Zizka is a cookbook writer and recipe developer

who has collaborated with California’s leading

chefs, including Elisabeth Prueitt, Jessica Koslow

and Suzanne Goin. She has co-authored numerous

award-winning cookbooks, such as Tartine All Day, Everything

I Want to Eat, and This Is Camino, has contributed

to 12 published books and developed over 1,000

recipes. Her first solo cookbook will be published by

Artisan in early 2019.

Her professional accomplishments have not gone

unnoticed. Zizka made the 2018 edition of the Forbes

30 Under 30: Food & Drink listing. “It’s the greatest

honor I’ve ever received for my work,” she said. “I

still almost can’t believe it’s really true. I was totally

surprised and I feel so grateful.”

24 // Dragon


Zizka recalled the evening that she and her now

husband, graphic designer Graham Bradley, were

walking home from the library during her second year

of college.

“Graham said that he heard the school newspaper

was hiring a columnist and suggested I write about

food,” she said. “I had been cooking a lot, but I had no

experience writing and I didn’t think anyone would

hire me to do that.”

Bradley, an experienced writer, offered an intriguing

option – “we can co-author it.” The couple applied for

the position and was hired. Zizka subsequently joined

the Cal cooking club, and began to consider a leap

into a very unusual career – cookbook writing and

recipe developing.

“I didn’t really have a model for what

it might look like, but when I thought

about writing about food my heart

just pounded in my chest,” she said.

“It scared me in a good way.”

After graduating from UC Berkeley, Zizka moved

to Manhattan – a place she had never even visited

before – to take an internship with Slow Food USA.

This non-profit organization, founded by Carlo Petrini

- stands against the disappearance of local food

traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food

they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how

our food choices affect the rest of the world.

At Slow Food, Zizka worked on the Ark of Taste - a

project that catalogues delicious and distinctive

foods facing extinction - writing about heritage apple

varieties that once grew in New York State.

Zizka subsequently attended L’Università degli Studi

di Scienze Gastronomiche in Italy, where she earned a

master’s degree in food culture and communications.

She wrote her master’s thesis on American cookbooks

in the 20th century and how the introduction of eBooks

changed the market.

A requirement of the master’s program was to complete

a three-month internship. So Zizka wrote to a

chef and author she admired – Suzanne Goin – and

asked to work with her. Much to Zizka’s delight, Goin

offered her the opportunity collaborate on a cookbook,

heading up recipe testing.

“Suzanne became my mentor and has always been

the biggest supporter of me and my career,” Zizka

said. “And Graham and I got married at one of her

restaurants – A.O.C. in Los Angeles.”

Recipe writing is a quirky thing, Zizka says. “It’s such

a particular style of writing, and there is a style guide

that each publishing house follows,” she explained. “I

love how you can get a sense of someone’s personality

and voice through a recipe. I’m really attracted to

recipes that are unique and packed with verbs that a

person would actually use.”

Zizka started work on her solo cookbook about 18

months ago. “The cookbook-making process isn’t

quick. It takes years to develop and test more than

one hundred recipes, edit the manuscript, design the

layout, and photograph all the dishes. Then of course

there’s the printing and book binding,” she said. “The

really sweet thread through this is my husband is

doing all the design.”

The idea to develop her own cookbook came shortly

after Zizka got engaged and was perusing cookbooks

intended for newlyweds.

“Even though they were recently published they felt

outdated and they didn’t reflect my reality. They were

often about a wife cooking for her husband, and so I

had this idea to write a modern, updated version of a

newlywed cookbook where the couple is a team and

they work together. It’s about cooking for each other

and other people,” she said.

Zizka says one of the most challenging aspects of

her work - recipe development in particular - is

being comfortable with feelings of frustration. “If a

dish doesn’t turn out well, I have to be able to just

try again and again,” she said. “That takes a certain

drive.”

With years of cooking under her belt, Zizka doesn’t

have too many mishaps in the kitchen these days. “I

can see when things are headed down a bad path and

I can make adjustments in real time to prevent any

major disasters. But I’ve certainly had my fair share,”

she said.

SUPPORTING

THE SUCCESS

AND GROWTH

of the Alumni

Community

More than 25 alumni gathered for the 3rd annual O’Dowd

Alumni Summit, held at the Center for Environmental

Studies on August 29, 2018, to learn about the Alumni

Strategic Plan and the school’s efforts to actively engage

its valued alumni in the life of the school.

In addition to learning about the future of O’Dowd Alumni

Relations, the group heard from fellow alumni who attended

the Grand Reunion in June. Father/daughter alums

Patrick Riley ’63 and Shauna Riley Fithian ’88 shared a

unique O’Dowd experience by celebrating their reunions

at the same time at O’Dowd’s 2018 Grand Reunion!

“My feeling on campus was ‘Wow, this feels so

familiar.’ Yet it felt all new and kind of shiny in

a way that I didn’t remember. I loved seeing all

the composites because I remember as a student

that was something I always did - look for my

dad and uncle - and my friends would look for

their family members and people that they knew.

It was neat to see my photo on the wall in this

place that I feel so connected to,” Fithian said.

Jim Negri ’68 participated in the Summit, sharing his

enthusiasm about O’Dowd with attendies, much like he has

throughout the year with his classmates as they celebrate

their 50th reunion.

Jim has a great perspective on O’Dowd. Not only is he an

alumnus, he’s the parent of an O’Dowd graduate, a former

O’Dowd teacher and a recently retired school district

superintendent with a keen perspective on education.

Jim said that throughout his career, he always looked to

O’Dowd for inspiration, as it has always been ahead of the

educational curve. “The role of any educational institution

is to prepare the next generation of leaders in the democratic

society. There is no question that O’Dowd excels at

meeting this goal,” he said.

Jim led a discussion around alumni support at the Summit.

He noted that 4% of O’Dowd alumni donated to our school

last year. Comparatively, the alumni giving average for Bay

Area Catholic schools 11%.

Jim inspired the Dragon competitive spirit by saying he

didn’t understand why O’Dowd wasn’t beating all these

schools in terms of alumni giving percentage. “As Dragons,

we have always been proud of being the best in everything!”

he said.

Shauna Fithian ’88 and Patrick Riley ’63 shared a unique O’Dowd experience by celebrating their reunions at the same time at O’Dowd’s 2018 Grand Reunion! They

spoke about their experiences with attendees of the Alumni Summit. Also pictured are Diana Steccone Smahlik ’62 and Nicole Smahlik ’94 who attended the summit.

RENEWING

CONNECTIONS

AND RELIVING

MEMORIES

at the Inaugural

Grand Reunion

A festive atmosphere at the Inagural Grand Reunion added to the fun.

Close to 200 alumni returned to campus on June 2, 2018,

for the inaugural O’Dowd Grand Reunion – Party on the

Quad.

This event was geared for all classes scheduled to hold

reunions in 2018, and provided an opportunity for alumni

to connect with classmates, friends and favorite faculty

and staff on the O’Dowd campus. Each class had its own

designated gathering space.

“The Grand Reunion was truly a celebration and most

definitely lived up to its name - Party on the Quad! It was

wonderful to see so many alums coming back to O’Dowd

and having a great time. It was a joy to honor our alumni

and welcome them back home,” Director of Alumni Engagement

& Philanthropy LizaDawn Aduviso said.

The Quad was transformed into a fabulous party space,

with music, fun games and activities, as well as delicious

food – including paella, brats and sliders – and beverages.

Alumni also had the opportunity to tour the campus, enjoy

a cooking workshop with fresh produce from the Living

Lab, take fun photo booth candids, and share their personal

stories of their O’Dowd experiences.

Several former and current faculty members were on hand,

including Tom Tyler, Tony Green, Gary Mason, Doug

Vierra, Mattie Ignacio, and Fran Warmerdam. “Awesome

young people turned into awesome adults,” Warmerdam

said.

A Milestone

Year FOR ’68

50th high school reunion celebration elicits reflection and

the sharing of memories. Several members of the Class of

1968, who were celebrated and honored at a Golden Diploma

Ceremony on June 2, 2018, held in conjunction with Alumni

Grand Reunion festivities taking place on the O’Dowd

campus, were eager to share with us memories of the impact

their O’Dowd experience had on their lives.

Enduring Memories:

WHAT I LEARNED AT O’DOWD

Don Keeley had no idea what kind of a career he wanted to pursue until he took a

Chemistry class at O’Dowd. “I loved it, and there’s been a chemistry component in every

job I’ve ever had,” he said.

Pat Sinnott developed his love for reading at O’Dowd and actually saved all his reading

lists from high school and often revisits them. Living in the Dublin area, Pat hitchhiked

to and from school every day, and while he was waiting to get picked up he would

read books to pass the time. He remains grateful for the encouragement he received at

O’Dowd to become an avid reader.

Alison Little McGhee said O’Dowd gave her self-confidence and welcomed

her with open arms – a very different experience than she had in college when she felt

unwanted as a minority. “I learned from my time at O’Dowd to never give up. After I had

a stroke, I wrote My Stroke of Luck that details the challenges I faced.”

Diane Mahoney recalled a sewing project that she worked on for an entire semester.

When she went to pick it up at the cleaners the day before it was due, she discovered

that the business was closed for vacation. She was devastated – as the project was tied to

a fashion show - and contacted her Home Economics teacher to let her know about the

mishap. “My teacher was a calm individual who told me not to worry - just pick another

project on which I had worked. Although it was a simple gesture, it has stayed with me to

this day,” she said.

Legacy Families

Spanning

Generations

CELEBRATE

CONNECTION

By Brian Cushing ’84

Family connections have been part of the O’Dowd experience

from the earliest days of the school’s existence.

Literally thousands of alumni can make connections to a

sibling, cousin, parent, or grandparent who also walked the

“hallowed halls” sung about in our alma mater (the 1963

version, not the original 1955 version).

Brian Cushing ’94, Sheila Moyles Cushing ’57 and Colleen Cushing ’19.

rousing game of Bishop O’Dowd High School Trivia. Do

you know which principal had the longest tenure of office?

(see answer below)

Sheila Moyles Cushing ’57 was the elder stateswoman at

the event, sharing stories with her grandchildren,

Colleen ’19 and Bob ’20. Jess Brown ’98 and his daughter,

Jasaiya ’21, were the youngest Legacy connection in

attendance. Five different decades of Dragon experiences

were shared and some recorded as current students interviewed

their parent/grandparent as part of the Dragon

Stories Oral History Project launched in anticipation of

the school’s 75th Anniversary. Plans are in the making for a

Legacy Luncheon in 2018-19, so if you are part of a current

Legacy family, keep your eye out for news of this fun event.

Answer: Fr. Richard Ranalleti, CSB, was O’Dowd’s longest

serving principal (1991-2000).

On April 26, 2018, more than 50 members of Legacy families

came together for a special reception sponsored by

the Alumni Relations Office. Legacy families are unique

members of the O’Dowd community who have second or

third generations of students following in a direct line the

footsteps of their parents or grandparents.

Guests gathered in the Center for Environmental Studies

on a evening that was blessed with a beautiful sunset on

the Bay. After mingling with and getting to know other

families from the decades (helped along with an O’Dowdbased

game of People Bingo), the families competed in a

ROLL OF DONORS

You, our benefactors, are partnering with us to ensure that the students of Bishop

O’Dowd High School have the resources, the education and the faith formation to lead

meaningful and impactful lives. O’Dowd has continued to raise the bar for excellence in

Catholic education with our mission at the heart of everything we do. This would not be

possible without you.

Our students perform their work – in class conversations, in service learning projects, in

their ministry to each other through leadership, as fellow athletes on the field – mindful

of the community they build in their four years on campus.

But we know that their experience has been made richer because of the leadership, faith and creativity that was

brought to the campus by those who came before them. Generations of students, faculty and administrators

have shaped this institution and thus, the daily experience of our students.

We’re deeply grateful for the financial support we’ve received this past year – support that enabled a generous

financial aid program, salary increases for our faculty, a wide range of strong co-curricular programs, faith

formation opportunities and improved facilities. We’re also grateful for the care and devotion that each O’Dowd

community member has made to enhance this institution and its impact on individual lives and the East Bay.

assuring fiscal stability. Their gifts

build the endowment, a perpetual

fund whose income provides

essential financial support for all

aspects of the school. We recognize

the commitment of these

visionary donors by extending to

them membership in the 1951

GIFTS IN

MEMORY OF

STEPHEN PHELPS

O’Dowd received many generous

gifts in memory of Steve

Phelps. The majority of these

gifts were made to the Stephen

Phelps Memorial Scholarship

Fund which honors Dr. Phelps’

service to Catholic education

and Bishop O’Dowd High

School. This endowed fund

will provide financial aid to

deserving O’Dowd students

for generations to come. It was

Steve’s dream that all students

– regardless of financial

circumstances – could pursue

their dreams and achieve their

goals. Thank you for joining us

in honoring Steve’s legacy.
