Congratulations to Senior Raider William Reed '18 who broke three American records Saturday, September 2, in the 16-17 year old Junior Raw National United States Powerlifting Association. William set a new squat record of 534.5 lbs, a new deadlift record of 622 lbs, and a new Raw American total record of 1482 lbs! Great job, William, and everyone from our Raider family who helped him achieve his new records including his father, Raider alumnus Bill Reed '89, and his coaches: Philip M. Maranto '00, Ed Maranto, Avery Vodanovich '13, Nick Adams '13, Marc Villere '13, and Rene Roane, Raider dad of Kyle Roane '18 and Bryce Roane '22 .
Campus Ministers Michael Monistere, Gabriel Eberle, Phil Garrett, and Patrick Meehan helped to facilitate St. Catherine of Siena's seventh grade retreat at Camp Abbey. The seniors served at Mass, conducted a group presentation, and led small group discussions.
On Friday, September 22, religion teacher Mr. Leroy Baker visited The Good Shepherd School on Baronne Street for their weekly middle school prayer service.
With the theme’s prayer service being “friendship," Mr. Baker began the service with a song and sang about the importance of values in friendship. After readings, prayers of the faithful, and a teacher reflection, Mr. Baker ended the service with the perfect friendship song, "Lean on Me."
Congratulations to Raider Alumnus and Spanish teacher Mr. Joel Neill '03! Mr. Neill is being featured in New Orleans City Business Magazine in their "Ones to Watch in Education" section. Mr. Neill has been teaching ten years, going into his eleventh year at Archbishop Rummel. He also sponsors several clubs, including ping pong, fooseball, and video gaming. He received his bachelor of science degree in psychology from LSU before becoming an educator. To quote one of our own students, Michael McLaughlin '18 says, "Señor Neill's class was always fun and engaging; there was never a dull moment in the classroom. His personality is one of a kind; the way he jokes with his students and how he relates to us really makes him stand out as a teacher. One thing that makes him who he is, is his passion for teaching. I hope one day to be as passionate for my career as Señor Neill."
