The event invited Carolians who lived in the Windy City’s area to join Principal Jim Lower and several members of the school staff at last Friday’s Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game. The group enjoyed watching the game from one of the famous multi-level “Wrigley Rooftops” — this one was located at 3617 Sheffield Ave. just behind the right field stands. Folks could watch the game from the rooftop stands or gather in the air-conditioned lower floor bar area and watch on large screen TVs while they relaxed at a table or booth.
Guests were treated to an “open bar” of wine, beer and soft drinks and a delightful unlimited buffet stocked with grilled chicken breasts, Italian beef sandwiches, Chicago style hot dogs, grilled bratwurst, hamburgers and cheeseburgers, nachos, potato chips, pasta salad, fresh fruit, salad, ice cream bars and ice cream cups and assorted cookies and brownies.
The weather was PERFECT and the Cubs (with the best record in baseball) had ace-pitcher Jake Arrieta on the mound. They went on to win the game 6-0. Everyone had a wonderful time speaking with Mr. Lower and staff, relaxing at the inside and outdoor facilities, meeting new friends and catching up with classmates. Afterward, Tom O’Neil ’13 lead the group to a local establishment where he worked, The Bar Celona, where everyone toasted St. Charles and the special camaraderie shared among its alumni and friends.
Chicago-area alumni who intended included: Adam Woodruff ’06, Brandon Nemec ’04, Charles Plummer ’00, Dale Hatem ’75, David Ennis ’65, Derek Talley ’99, Doug MacLachlan ’94, Eric Gruesen ’04, Geoff Shaver ’94,Greg Hanna ’89, Jay Stevenson ’86, Joe DeSapri ’96, Jon Ryan ’80, Mark Lower ’04, Mark Skopin ’00, Marquis Miller ’77, Michael Wodarcyk ’05, Mike Durik ’00, Ryan McGovern ’89, Travis Dent ’00, Calvin Prest ’08, Joey Hamrock ’08, Michael Hamrock ’14, Robert O’Neil ’09, Thomas O’Neil ’13, Tom Schindler ’92 and Zac Vesco ’08.

Fabro ’83.
Our thanks to local Carolian Ryan McGovern ’89 who helped Alumni Director Louis J. Fabro ’83 and Development Officer Mike Welsch plan and organize all the details. Based on the success of this year’s event, St. Charles is looking forward to hosting many more alums next year when it returns for a “2nd Annual” Chicago visit!
What’s next? Those living in Cincinnati should contact Mike Welsch (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be included in this year’s alumni gathering at The Great American Ballpark on Sunday, July 24th when the Reds take on the Arizona Diamondbacks. Carolians will be treated to refreshments and a buffet inside the park’s weather-proof “Machine Room” which has been reserved exclusively for us by 1993 alumnus and Reds CFO, Doug Healy.
In mid-May, the school held an alumni gathering for those in the Akron/Cleveland area at the Bravo! Restaurant in the Fairlawn Mall. That event was hosted by 1985 alumnus and Brio/Bravo! regional partner, Mike Creedon. Along with wine and cold refreshments, Mike and Chef Greg Sears treated guests to such delectable courses as fresh Gazpacho shooter with crab, Beef tartar, lobster sliders, crispy pork-belly w/ collard greens, Yukon stuffed potato with pulled BBQ pork, tempura shrimp and a warm cookie butter blondie.

On Wednesday, May 11th, St. Charles Preparatory School was honored to welcome Ohio State University football legend Archie Griffin to its Robert C. Walter Student Commons to speak to the community about “Character and Leadership.” You are highly encouraged to watch his presentation which was meaningful and inspiring to all those who heard it.
Click HERE to view the YouTube video. The program begins at the video’s 2:01 mark.
Mr. Griffin’s visit was sponsored by the St. Charles student group, My Brother’s Keeper (MBK), as part of its “Speaker Series” on Character & Leadership. The organization promotes diversity and inclusion at St. Charles Preparatory through recruitment, retention, enrichment and service to the community. Last year the school was honored to have national sports commentator and former Ohio State All-American and Indiana Pacer basketball player Clark Kellogg make the series’ inaugural presentation.
Special guests on hand will include 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students from United Schools Network’s Columbus Collegiate Academy. Many of these young men are currently matched up with St. Charles students in the hugely-successful MBK Mentoring Program. Through regular mentoring opportunities and training, these pairings focus on enhancing life skills, such as: goal setting, conflict resolution, decision making and leadership for those involved.
In addition to this peer mentoring, St. Charles is receiving great support from corporate partners: American Electric Power, Corna-Kokosing, Fifth Third Bank, and Huntington. Each of these partners has provided Adult Mentors who over the last year have engaged these St. Charles and USN students in deeper reflections on virtues and character traits required in a professional context. This serves as deeply valuable relationship building for our students in exposing them to corporate cultures of integrity as well as establishing lasting relationship with a caring and committed adult from the business community.
St. Charles is operating its program in partnership with The Mentoring Center of Central Ohio and The Better Business Bureau’s Center for Character Ethics and thanks to a Community Connectors Grant from the Governor’s Office.
We hope you will join us next Wednesday afternoon and encourage you to invite others whom you feel would benefit from hearing Mr. Griffin’s presentation. Questions regarding the event or the MBK Mentoring Program can be directed to Mike Warner (Faculty Member, MBK moderator) at email@example.com.
With a proven track record of accomplishment and achievement by its students and alumni, St. Charles Preparatory School continues to be blessed with the generous support of those in the Carolian and Central Ohio Communities. For the 2015-2016 school year alone St. Charles is providing more than $1.3 million in tuition assistance to 38% of our student families — in addition to awarding an additional $300,000 of merit-based scholarships.

We are very grateful that the proven track record of St. Charles continues to bolster your confidence in the mission of the school, the quality of the young men here, and the investment placed in them.
Each May, St. Charles hosts The Cardinal Society appreciation reception as one way to express our sincere gratitude for the commitment made by our leading supporters. This year’s gathering was held on Thursday, May 12th at the Scioto Country Club in Upper Arlington. We hope you enjoy viewing these photos taken of those who were able to attend the celebration.
St. Charles extends its most sincere appreciation to ALL those who have shared their gifts of time, talent and treasure to benefit the 630 young men here who have “Accepted the Challenge” to earn a St. Charles education.
