Here's the latest:

It sounds like Brittany Freeman '00 has been keeping busy!  Brittany was a Miami Dolphins cheerleader and is currently an entertainer both on and off the ice for the Florida Panthers NHL team.  She co-owns a dance studio, and also spends time as a figure skating coach, freelance journalist, and model.  One of Britanny's fondest memories of St. Chris is the great education she received . . .and going ice skating at the park of course.

 

Michael Storace '05, like fellow alumnus Christian Avard, is also putting pen to paper (or hands to keyboard!) in the Green Mountain State.  A sophomore at the University of Vermont, Mike keeps himself busy majoring in environmental studies, minoring in literature, and writing for The Watertower, a school newspaper.  He is in the Honors College and was accepted into two honor societies.  Mike is one of the top students in his class and hopes to secure an environmental internship this summer as he looks ahead to graduate school.  Life is good . . . especially when Mike manages to find spare time for snowboarding!

Gary Storace '08 is a junior at Bishop Guertin where he studies hard and plays for the varsity ice hockey team.  Gary is never far from a rink and laces up his skates all year round for three different hockey teams.  For a little variety, Gary tries his hand at lacrosse in the spring.  Gary recently discovered the significance of earning money as he prepares for college, and has taken over his brother's lawn mowing business.  He too enjoys snowboarding in the winter.

 

DSCN3662Congratulations to St. Chris graduate Brandon Pierotti '05, who received the Boy Scouts of America's highest rank today, that of Eagle Scout. Held at the St. Patrick Parish Hall, Brandon's Eagle Court of Honor included awards and speeches by local Boy Scout administrators, local clergy, and the mayor of Nashua, Donnalee Lozeau.

St. Chris was blessed to be the site of Brandon's Eagle Scout project last year. Over a period of several months last Spring and Summer, Brandon completed the landscaping around our new playground, creating a beautiful garden to surround the new playspace. The project was completely under Brandon's direction, as he planned the space, coordinated fundraising, plant donations, and volunteers, and worked many long hours in the hot sun. Thank you and congratulations, Brandon!

 

Christian Avard '85 reports that he is a staff reporter for the Deerfield Valley News in Dover, VT. Among his "beats" is Twin Valley High School sports in Wilmington, VT. He covers soccer, basketball, snowboarding/skiing, baseball, softball, girls lacrosse and golf. Recently, Christian won the Vermont Basketball Coaches Association media award, an award given to print/tv journalists for excellence in promoting the sport of basketball in Vermont. Congratulations to Christian!

 

Diana Heath, mother of Elizabeth Heath, reports that Elizabeth is in her fourth year at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston. She is an electro-mechanical engineering major with a strong interest in robotics. She interned this past summer at iRobot and was sent to White Sands Missile Range/Fort Bliss to do on-site adjustments/repairs of the iRobot SUGV (small unmanned ground vehicle) that our soldiers are using in Afganistan.

 

This Spring saw several St. Chris alumni and Bishop Guertin students inducted into the National Art Honor Society. Tapped for the honor were Nola Ennis '03, Stephanie Joerger '04, Victor Puksta '04 and Annie Reilly '04. Congratulations to each of them!

 

Peter Reilly '02 continues his stellar career, both athletically and academically, at the U.S. Naval Academy. In July, Peter was named to the 2009 Patriot League Golf Academic Honor Roll, along with five of his teammates. The Navy website notes:

Hailing from Merrimack, N.H., Reilly competed in half of Navy's tournament schedule where he finished the year with a 76.5 stroke average. Additionally, he earned a 1-up victory over Army's Adam Renfroe in singles play to help lead the Mids to a win in the Star Match last October. Reilly's best finish was his sixth-place performance at the conference championship where he became the third Navy player to be crowned the Patriot League Rookie of the Year. He made his way onto the league's academic honor roll after recording a 3.31 GPA during the spring semester. Heading into his second year at the Academy, Reilly has selected mechanical engineering as his field of study.

Thomas Indelicato of Amherst has been nominated to the U.S. Air Force Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy. Amy Polaneczky of Nashua has been nominated to the U.S. Air Force Academy. Congratulations to both of them!
