FROM THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT
Dear Alums,
In this challenging time of reconfiguration of our Archdiocesan school
system, we are pleased to say that
Archbishop Carroll High School is
alive and well – and growing! We
are anticipating the arrival of more
students as we welcome those whose
alma maters, sadly, are closing. In
the true Carroll Cares spirit, we are
reaching out to these students and
their families, as well as to our colleagues in Catholic education, for
whom these changes are most difficult.
Always looking to the future, Archbishop Carroll is expanding academically by adding more
Advanced Placement courses to the curriculum in science, art, music, and world languages. We
are also adding courses to support our students who need further assistance with critical reading,
writing, and math skills.
In athletics, Carroll has initiated a crew team for both boys and girls, and we are considering a
resurrection of the wrestling team. Ultimate Frisbee has evolved from an intramural pastime to a
full-fledged sport, and the organization Catholic Athletes for Christ promotes traditional Christian values and encourages athletes to socialize and share their goals with each other.
Last year, several faculty members retired, among them Ms. Munster and Mr. Murray from the
social studies department. Mr. Greco and Mr. Bizzarro and Mrs. Lenhart also retired, as did Mr.
Lohr. The good news is that these valued faculty members still keep in touch and are active in
volunteer capacities. Ms. Munster still moderates the boys’ basketball team, and Mr. Lohr has
come back to run the blood drives. The Carroll spirit lives on! In fact, that statement is literally
true since two of our teachers, Mrs. Papantoniou and Mrs. Mauger have given birth to baby Carroll girls, and Mrs. Wert (Linda Heffernan) is expecting in May. This past year Mr. Zamulinsky
and Mr. Freda both got married. Youth and energy are as much a part of the Carroll faculty as
are the old familiar faces!
As always, we want to hear from you about what’s going on in your lives. Your joys – and even
sorrows – are ours. Remember: We are Carroll!

VIEW FROM THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE
by Mike Duffy, Director of Admissions
As we continue our quest for members of the Class of 2016, it is interesting to note that
Archbishop Carroll enjoys diversity unlike any other diocesan high school. With over
eighty different parishes feeding us, we continue to attract a variety of students. The
variety of social and economic backgrounds that our student body represents lends itself
to the melting pot that Carroll is. Our students learn to adapt and make friends easily
as they all become part of the Carroll family.
This is even more important as we adjust to the decisions of the Blue Ribbon Commission in their realignment of the school system. Our all-welcoming students are ready
with open arms to greet their fellow students who will be arriving from the affected
schools and areas. These changes will add to the aura that is Carroll.
Now more than ever we need the support of the Alumni. The need for additional funding to allow us to help those who desire a Catholic Education but require some financial assistance, will be increasing. Many of us who have had the benefit of a Catholic
educational experience can now have the opportunity to give back and allow the next
generation to have the unique experience so that they too can give back when it becomes
their turn.
Please email your
intentions to
[email protected]
and they will be
remembered at Mass
in the Chapel
To our alumni
serving in the
military:
We appreciate all
you do for us and
pray for your safety.
You have our
heartfelt thanks.

ALUMNI
Dear Alums,
My first year at Archbishop Carroll High School has been wonderful! It has been a great privilege getting to know the
stakeholders of the Patriot Community as well as the traditions of the school. In an effort to cultivate a greater sense
of school spirit among the current student body, the campus minister has begun the work of reconnecting our students
to the traditions and charism of the Christian Brothers and educating them in the customs of our other founding
religious communities. It is important to me that we stay connected to the history of our great school. After much
searching, we have located the music to the school alma mater. We plan to teach the students this song to ensure that
it will become part of the current and future legacy of Carroll Spirit.
Academically, we are continuing to expand a challenging and rigorous program that will allow all of our students to
meet with success and go on to the Colleges and Universities they choose. This year, we have added AP Chemistry,
Chem 2, AP Music Theory, Drama, Environmental Science and AP Studio Art. These courses provide a wider course
selection for our present and future students. As we move forward to provide a 21st century Catholic Education we
will explore the development of specialized academies within our school. Currently, we are exploring two , Engineering and Performing Arts, while in very preliminary planning stages we feel that these two academies within the school
will offer our students a broader, more well-rounded academic experience that will furnish them with the ability to
compete in the global economy.
In the world of athletics, we have had a number of changes this year. We welcome Mr. Gerry Olinger as our new Athletic Director. Gerry is committed to continuing the development and growth of the strongest athletic program in the
Catholic League. Joining Gerry new this year is Joe Powell, head football coach, Jennifer Dawson Head Cheerleading
coach and William Gennaro who will be the first Crew coach in the history of our school. I would like to publically
thank Mr. Dan Bielli for his many years at the helm of Patriot football. He is a man of deep integrity and a role model
for many of our students. His presence on the sideline will be missed.
I look forward to many more years as a member of the Patriot Community. If you would ever like to discuss exciting
programs and future of Archbishop Carroll High School, please feel free to contact me at [email protected]
Respectfully,
Mr. Joseph L. Denelsbeck

THEN AND NOW
Still an Inspiration: Sister Anne Phyllis Ryan, S.H.C.J.
by Lynn Garbarino Gosnell, ‘76
As many of us remember, Sr. A.P. was on the staff of Carroll for 23 years. She always was, and still is, enthusiastic
about everything. Her mind overflows with memories of her own time at West Catholic Girls, her influence with
history-shaping years in Africa, and education in general. Carroll girls showed her a love of learning. As she put it,
“the girls had a spirit of independence and freedom along with ability to control their actions”.
I had been a product of Catholic education my entire life. First, St. Katharine of Sienna, next, Archbishop Carroll
High School, and ending with St. Bonaventure University. I was taught by the Immaculate Heart of Mary Sisters,
Sisters of St. Joseph, the Sisters of Mercy, the Sisters, Franciscan Sisters, and my beloved Sisters of the Holy Child
Jesus. The SHCJ were fun and real. Having grown up with the mysteries of the "veil" I found that this order of nuns
had lives that were fulfilling, which they wanted to share with us.
One Sister in particular, was a standout, besides being a stand up! It was “Sr. A.P.R.” My first meeting with Sr. Anne
Phyllis was in a Moral Theology class back in the 70's. She had been teaching at West Catholic and Hallahan before
she landed at ABC. I have never met a Sister who could put a smile on your face faster than she could. The fascinating
thing about her lectures was the way she could weave a tale about her 25 years in Nigeria and tie it into a meaningful
lesson on morals. We loved her! She treated everyone the same and truly brought out the best in each of her students.
She was never judgmental and always gave strong advice. Moral Theology covered some heavy topics and somehow,
Sr. A.P. picked up those "strays" and brought them back into the "fold”. Attending her class helped us look at the
reality of our lives. You knew she truly loved Jesus Christ and challenged anyone who had any doubts as to whether
they didn't have a place in their lives for Him.
Looking back now, I see how much she has shaped who I am. I am a teacher at Rosemont School of the Holy Child.
Along with my teaching duties, I am the Community Service Coordinator. Part of my job includes scheduling classes
to go across to New Sharon for the children to visit the Sisters. This inter-generational exchange that is communicated
between the children and Sisters is astounding! I was fortunate to catch up with Sr. A.P. when she moved in. I made
a point to visit her and catch up. She was as young and outgoing as ever, although she claimed she had slowed down.
I cherish these visits and she always asks me to pray for her. I usually leave her a list of people to pray for. Sr. A.P. is
someone that everyone needs to experience. She brings Jesus into your heart and a lift into your step. This holy, but
grounded, woman has helped shape the lives of many as a teacher, a preacher, a missionary, and visionary.
It has been a privilege to still have contact with her.

SCHOOL MINISTRY
Dear Carroll Alum,
I hope the start of your new year has been a happy one and that you and your families are
experiencing many blessings thus far. I am writing to express my gratitude for all those who
have been so generous in donating to our Chapel Fund since my last note to you. We have
been able to finance all our liturgical items thus far, with the exception of two remaining
items: the Altar of Sacrifice (cost: $3,800.00) and Altar of Reservation ($3,600.00).
If there is anyone who would still like to donate to the Chapel Fund (with or without
memorializing a loved one) and support our efforts to beautify and enhance our liturgical
celebrations, please contact me at [email protected] Know that you are always welcome
at our daily Masses at 7:10 AM or to stop by and visit our chapel anytime. Be assured of a
remembrance in our prayers and please keep us in yours. May we continue to live Jesus in
our hearts forever as we strive to be a people pro Deo et Patria—for God and Country—in
all we say and do.
Sincerely in Christ,
Tom Phillips
Director of School Ministry
CURRENT SPOTLIGHT
Tom Catullo ’12
by Sue Munster
In September of 2008, my HR included a quiet young gentleman alphabetically seated in the
first row, back. In his Honors World History I class, he was one of the steady quiet workers.
In AP European History, studiously he contributed to group presentations with his dry wit.
Today Tom Catullo has emerged. and become an intellectual leader.
This President of the NHS currently ranks academically at the top of the Senior class. Tom
is joined by approximately 40 other “2nd Generation” students in this years’ graduating class
of almost 300.
Mrs. Francine Burkhardt, Mathematics at Carroll, has said that: “Tom is one of the finest
students that I have encountered at Archbishop Carroll. He is a credit to both the school
and his family. I wish him a very successful future when he leaves us for Johns Hopkins.”
Appropriate for this computing age, his interest has been focused on technology. Tom credits his teachers and AP courses at Carroll for challenging him to the “level of dedication
needed for these courses.” With a major in Biomedical Engineering, and possibly a minor
in Computer Science, Tom expects to eventually write programs that deal with cell and tissue engineering. “My goal is to find a way to combine the two disciplines in a manor that
will improve lives through this.” Tom has a noble goal, indeed. I applaud his courage and
dedication. My confidence is with him and the accomplisments ahead of him.
As we can all see, Tom is a credit to his parents and their efforts. Mom is Denise Scannapieco, Carroll 1982.
