Our Values
By: Dr. Michael Smith, Superintendent, JPII Schools
“ENDURING” is the one word that sums up the value of Catholic
Education for me. At a recent alumni event we discussed the difference
between faith formation and character development. Public schools often
use character development as a selling point of their community. We
embrace the same tenets and are currently using the book The 7 Mind
Sets as a scaffold for our character education. The Mind Sets are: Passion
First, We Are Connected, 100% Accountable, Attitude of Gratitude, Live
to Give, The Time is Now, and Live Your Dreams (Shickler & Waller
2012). By all accounts these are attributes we strive to see in others and
especially young adults. People who embody these Mindsets will find
success in their lives and surely be the type of people who will add value
to society and that is the type of person we strive to help form at all of the
JPII Catholic Schools.
But, what separates our graduates from others learning in environments
steeped in the Mind Sets is our sights on the enduring faith component
which is the ultimate goal of Catholic Education. Our community is built
on the enduring Catholic Faith. We are focused on providing students
with an education that will serve them to “follow Christ in an environment

guided by the
Gospel spirit, as
taught by the
Catholic Church”
(JPII Mission
Statement).
Our students
are reminded
of our value
statement “We
are a community
inspiring excellence
through faith,
learning and
service” as it is read
during morning
Nativity Elementary students on
announcements.
Peace Patrol
We need our
students to be excellent in those areas so that
they can serve God through serving one another.
Our students will fully develop when they can
reach towards excellence in all of these areas.
What will endure for our students, and endures
for community is the focus on Christ and our
eternal lives. Character Development and tools
like The 7 Mindsets are valuable and important,
but they will endure when, like the other areas
of curriculum, are integrated with the Catholic
Faith.
In this edition of the Deacon Newsletter we are
providing snapshots of Excellence, Community,
Faith, Learning and Service. We will take a look
at these values and how our focus on them makes
our schools truly unique, blessed and fixed on
what endures!
Excellence
by: Randy Nelson, Activities Director, JPII Schools
“Tradition of Excellence” is a phrase we use at
Shanley quit often. We talk about “Excellence”
in many different ways. “Excellence”, is a part
of our Value Statement for the Network. That
statement reads, “We are a community inspiring
excellence through faith, learning and service.”
Excellence can be defined in many different
ways. Excellence in the class room, excellence in
activities, and excellence in our faith. One area
that we have focused on recently at Shanley with
our activities is “Excellence in Leadership”. Last
December I had the opportunity to attend the
National Athletic Directors Conference in San
Antonio, Texas. One of the session I attended
was on “Sportsmanship”. In this workshop
they spoke about how a student lead leadership
group was instrumental in helping improve the
“Sportsmanship” of the school.
Upon my return from San Antonio we created
the “Captains Council” here at Shanley made up
of captains from different activities. This group
came together with a goal of helping our school
spirit and its sportsmanship reach a level of
excellence. These leaders were able to inspire
excellence in our student body to a new level of
positive cheers and even parent participation
showing our school spirit. One event that was
led by this group that stands out in my mind
took place at Fargo South when our students
collaborated with the Fargo South students in
“opposite night”. The students of Shanley dressed
in Fargo South
colors and Fargo
South students
dressed in
Shanley colors.
The two schools
worked together
to create a fun
and unusual
setting. When
parents looked
across the
court they saw
students in red
shirts and khaki
pants cheering
for Fargo South
and our students
in brown and
gold cheering
for Shanley. This
night was not just
about two schools

for everyone.
This group is also helping to create awareness of
good sportsmanship by taking turns reading the
Eastern Dakota Conference (EDC) Sportsmanship
Creed. I helped create this Sportsmanship Creed
by adapting the Sportsmanship Creed from the
Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference to fit the
EDC. Before each game the EDC Sportsmanship
Creed is read by the host school. However, here
at Shanley we have taken it to another level. Each
home game after the prayer and the National
Anthem one of our Captains reads the EDC
Sportsmanship Creed over the loud speaker. By
having a student-athlete read this creed lends
credibility for the fans to think about their
sportsmanship. Currently we are the only EDC
School that has a student-athlete read the creed.
Other schools continue to have their announcers
read the creed
The actions of our students and the rest of the
EDC has not gone unnoticed. Sherm Sylling
Executive Secretary of the North Dakota High
School Activities Association visited a meeting of
the EDC Athletic Directors last year to commend
our conference on the work we had done with the
sportsmanship of the students. To receive praise
like this from the head of our State Association is
outstanding. It shows that when students come
together to promote positive behaviors great
things can happen.
I am happy to say that our “Captains Council”
is still meeting each month. These meetings
have grown into mini sessions on “Enhancing
Leadership in our School.” Each “Mini Session”
focuses on areas of being a positive leader. A few
of the topics include Above the Line Thinking,
Role Modeling, Character Education, Goal
Setting, and Leadership Expectations.
As the “Captains Council continues to evolve new
ideas and new was to help promote the values
of Shanley High School and the JP II Schools
Network will take place. Shanley High School is
truly a Community inspiring Excellence from the
students, staff, and parents who live out our Value
and Mission Statements.
Faith
by: Peter Simon, Shanley Senior
Faith, it is the first core value use in our value
statement, “A community inspiring excellence
through faith, learning and service.” It is first,
rightly so, because faith is seen in every aspect
of daily life here at Shanley High School and
throughout the Blessed John Paul II Catholic
Schools Network. Faith is a strong foundation for
our education here at Shanley, we start every day
with prayer in morning announcements along
with other prayers said throughout the day in
our classes. Not only do we have the opportunity
to participate in our faith during the school
day, but we also are given a great deal of other
opportunities to grow in our faith lives. One of the
most common and easily accessible ways is every
morning in our chapel there is the opportunity of
adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Fr. Charles
presents the Blessed Sacrament every morning
in the chapel from around 7:20 up until our first
classes start at 8. Even though adoration ends at
8 am, we are still invited to visit the chapel any
chance we have during our school day.

Know Your Faith competition
A rather newer opportunity here at Shanley,
which has quickly become a fun and competitive
tradition, is the annual Know Your Faith
competition. The Know Your Faith competition
is where the four Catholic high schools in North
Dakota get together one day during Catholic
Schools Week and compete against each other
with their knowledge of the Catholic faith
and Church. The winning school receives a
large trophy and the title of Know Your Faith

Champions. The competition consists of teams
representing each school being asked a series
of questions about the Catholic faith including
Sacred Scripture, Church history, and the lives of
saints and other miscellaneous items of the faith.
The team that scores the most points for their
correct answers is crowned the Know Your Faith
Champion for that year in the state. This year
I was blessed with the opportunity to be a part
of the team representing Shanley and my fellow
teammates, Tyler Nelson and Alex Seefeldt, were
able to take home the trophy and the title and
continue Shanley’s reign as champions for the
second straight year.
Another opportunity we have which is also a
more recent one and an extremely profound and
influential opportunity is a Rome Pilgrimage.
Shanley has joined the four other Catholic high
schools in the state of North Dakota, led by the
University of Mary, on an annual pilgrimage
to Rome during the summer. This opportunity
is granted to the incoming seniors who wish to
explore the ancient Church and experience their
Catholic faith like never before. I was fortunate
to take this opportunity last summer and I am
so grateful that I was able to participate in this
extraordinary event. While in Rome, we were
given the opportunity to experience so many
events and see so many sights that it’s hard to
even wrap my mind around it all. During our
time there we saw the major basilicas of Rome,
along with a number of other extraordinary
churches, we were able to explore the city and
see the historical sights of the ancient Roman
Empire, we spent a great deal of time in the
Vatican and St. Peter’s square, even took in the
view from the Cupola at St. Peter’s. We were able
to travel to other cities and sights around Italy
such as Subiaco and Assisi. We were even able to
celebrate the Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul with
His Holiness, Pope Francis, inside the Basicilla
of St. Peter. Along with a great number of other
spectacular things. One of the many highlights
for me was being in the front row of the weekly
Wednesday audience of Pope Francis. This
trip alone, going into my senior year was an
extraordinary experience that without a doubt
will have a profound impact upon my faith and
just another example of an opportunity given at
Shanley to educate us in our faith life.
The core value of faith is a strong value that
we hold to a high regard at Shanley and for
me personally throughout my 13 years in the
Catholic Schools Network. The opportunities to
grow deeper in our faith in many different and
meaningful ways and the ability to experience
our faith in a new light are great and numerous.
These are the very visible marks that sets our
schools apart from those around us. My faith
experiences through my Catholic education has
made an incredible impact upon my life today
and has been a key role in my education and
experiences with Shanley High School.

“God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but of
power and love and self-control.” 2Timothy 1:7
(NABRE)
“The 9/11 Tribute center presents annual
awards to teachers that have created
exemplary educational projects that help
students to understand the impact of
September 11, 2001. These teachers have
engaged students in unique projects that
focus on historical and humanitarian
aspects of 9/11 history, making the lesson
of 9/11 tangible to children too young to
remember the attacks” (extracted from the
press release).
This is a national teaching award that includes
a monetary gift for the school donated by the
9/11 Family Foundation. Past awardees include
teachers from public and private schools and

states. The majority of teachers selected for this
award have been from New York State.
Shanley Teacher, Carolyn Williams-Foell,
received this award in February of this year in
New York City. While in New York, she was asked
to speak about what inspired her to teach her
students about the events of September 11th and
the acts of virtue demonstrated that day.
The Project Focus: The curriculum, which
has been in place for 4 years, focused on the acts
of virtue demonstrated by both the victims and
survivors during the attacks of September 11,
2001 and the sustaining role of Faith.
Below are excerpts from the award submission.
Inspiration: Four summers ago, Carolyn

temporary 9/11 Educational Center in New York
City located in the basement of a temporary
museum containing September 11th artifacts.
Although the theme of the center was aimed
at younger students in the New York area, Ms.
Williams-Foell was inspired to develop resources
for her high school students. She developed
a curriculum that would reach the 10th and
12th grade students in her classes. Tenth grade
students study the events of Sept 11, 2001
through documentary video and commentary,
interviewed their parents, experienced art and
poetry inspired by the events of September 11th,
and write a reflection on the impact the day had
on the country, community, and individuals and

focus on the
importance
of listening to and responding to God’s call
as demonstrated by many victims, survivors,
and rescuers through their actions during the
September 11 attacks and the days following.
When I began this curriculum 4 years ago, the
students had some recollections of the events of
September 11, 2001. However, as time progressed
the students now in class are too young to
remember the events. Each year I have been able
to expand the curriculum. As a member of the
theology department I have focused on virtues
that were demonstrated that day by people of all
faiths and walks of life, but in order to do so, I
first had to teach the students what transpired
on September 11th. While all students were
familiar with the very basic events, most did not
know the details. One surprise I found was that
although North Dakota is far from New York,

there are still inevitably connections between
the families of my students and those who lost
their lives that day. Students are also surprised
to learn this information. It has also come to
light that a graduate of our school died in the
attacks. Parental feedback has been surprising as
well, with parents making a point of letting me
know how valuable they found the experience
of discussing the events of the day with their
children. Since I have started this curriculum,
the school choir has taken a performance trip to
New York City and the choir director has said the
students were visibly moved when visiting the
location of the attacks. Another year a student
created a mosaic in memory of those who lost
their lives on September 11th and it won Best
in Show in the school art show. My firm hope
is that not only will the students remember the
events of September 11, 2001, but realize that if
facing circumstances that require heroic actions
that they will remember the virtue demonstrated
that day and it will strengthen them to act
accordingly.

Service
DEACONS – TO SERVE IS TO REIGN
by: Sherri Simon, JPII Communications Director
Through her work with Churches United
Heidi Deplazes, a sixth-grader at Sullivan
Middle School, put the core value of service
in the spotlight this year for the JPII Catholic
Schools. In the last year, Churches United For
the Homeless in Fargo/Moorhead served close
to 700 people annually and roughly 25% are
children. So, having a safe and appropriate place
for them to play was a high priority for Heidi.
“A playground is a place where a kid can be a
kid…” she noticed the need while doing service
projects with her Girl Scout troop. Heidi: “It was
ok, but I could see better. I have a future vision
for that.” Heidi proceeded to organize an event
that attracted donations worth nearly $5,000
to provide books and toys for a local homeless
shelter, built a shed for the facility, and did an
“extreme makeover” of its playground and family
room.
Last summer, Heidi took part in a youth
empowerment summit that challenged attendees
to change the world in 37 days. That made her
think about the time she had volunteered at a
homeless shelter. “I never saw any of the kids
playing with toys, and it made me sad,” she
remembered. “I think homeless kids especially
need toys to take their minds off all the stress
they have.” So Heidi set out to plan a fundraiser
in 37 days. She brainstormed with friends,
mapped out a plan on paper, and then started
meeting with community leaders to get advice
and support. With help from her mother, friends
and fellow Girl Scouts, Heidi worked out all the
logistics for “Shelter Fest,” a one-night event
featuring a supper, silent auction, and more than
20 kid activities including face painting, carnival
games, crafts and a marshmallow roast.
Afterward, she
had raised more
than $3,000 and
two truckloads of
toys, bikes, books
and other items
for kids at the
homeless shelter.
Then Heidi, along
with volunteers
from three churches
and her Girl Scout
troop, went to work
refurbishing the
shelter’s playground
and family room,
and building a

for four days of events, tours and national
recognition events. During the trip, 10 of them
will be named America’s top youth volunteers
of 2014, part of President Obama’s Presidential
Service Award.
Heidi Deplazes recently received the 2014
Prudential Spirit of Community Award from
North Dakota’s first lady, Betsy Dalrymple for
her service. She will receive $1,000, an engraved
silver medallion, and a trip to Washington, D.C.
this May. As State Honoree, she will gather

Please pray for Heidi and all of our Deacons who
through their service realize that they can make
a difference if you put your mind to it. As Mother
Teresa said, “I alone cannot change the world,
but I can cast a stone across the waters to create
many ripples.”

The Joy of Giving
Miranda Family
By: Dr. Michael Smith, Superintendent, JPII Schools
When we choose Catholic Education for our
children there is a choice that is made to invest
in our children in a way that takes a unique
commitment of resources. Not only is there
a monetary investment, but there is also a
commitment of time and energy that we make
because our Catholic Schools depend on a
familial commitment. Events like the upcoming
auction are great examples of how incredibly
dependent on parents and our greater JPII
Community’s involvement is to the success of
our community as we support each other in
educating our students. One of the unique and
special parts of our schools is that all of the
students are community members because their
parents made a decision that Catholic education
is important to invest in on an ongoing basis.
People not part of this type of school system often
claim that our test scores and activities success
are better than public schools, because we select
only certain children and allow only certain
families, in one way they are correct, but the
error in the statement is that families choose us
we don’t choose the families. Critics also do not
understand that all are welcome, and to be a part
of our JPII Catholic Community one must only
decide that it is important enough to choose, and
invest in.
Earl and Rebecca Miranda have made that choice.
As I sat down and spoke with the Miranda family
about their choice of JPII for their children, they
highlighted what went into their decision making
process. In many ways they represent all of our
families who have decided on investing in their
children’s future through Catholic education.
What makes them a bit of an anomaly is that next
year they will have seven children in the JPII
schools. Our Catholic Schools have always been
fortified by a number of large families. Longtime
friends and supporters of Catholic Education
in our area can easily recognize last names like
Noah, Vetter, McCormick and the list of families
who have had large numbers of students in our
schools goes on and on, but the Miranda’s are
also unique because they are relatively new to
the Fargo area. We hope this article will give you
The Miranda Family
some insight into why the Miranda family has
chosen the JPII Schools, as the rationale they
articulated is similar to the reasons families have
been choosing Catholic Education for years.
Earl and Rebecca Miranda are not Fargo natives.
They moved to Fargo in 2008 and chose JPII
Schools because of the faith component and
that at our school’s students are given the same
messages that are reinforced at home. Prayer is
at the center of the Miranda household and to
have faith at the heart of their children’s school
is extremely important to them. So important
that they need to make personal sacrifices to the
extent that their children are also aware of the
choice they have made as a family. In preparing
to write this article I spoke with Earl and
Rebecca, but Lexi (grade 11), Megan (grade 9)
and Jordan (grade 6) also shared their thoughts
about attending JPII Schools. What was striking
was how similar the children’s responses were to
their parents. And for the record the interviews
took place about six weeks apart and the students
and parents were interviewed separately.
One of points expressed by Earl and Rebecca and
the students was the gift of celebrating the true
meaning of holidays. Jordan expressed the fact
that the true reason for Christmas and Easter
could be shared and talked about in schools
and how not to be able to openly speak about
these holidays at school would be strange and
sad. He went on to add, “I enjoy knowing more
The Deacon • Spring 2014

The Joy of Giving cont.
about God and who he sent down to help us. I
am conscientious about how he is with us.” As I
reflected on Jordan’s statement, I thought, “We
are so blessed to have children like this in our
schools.” And we have a lot of them!
Lexi spoke about the importance of faith being
everywhere and fully integrated into different
subjects like science. Her parents echoed
that it is reassuring to know that the staff will
give consistent answers to difficult questions
concerning faith and the application of faith in
lives outside of school. Attending Mass with her
peers is something else, she finds as a blessing of
being enrolled in our schools.
Megan spoke about her love of babies and
how proud that she was to be at a school that
honored the Pro-Life movement as much as we
do here. Megan has already attended one March
For Life in Washington D.C. and both Lexi and
Megan plan on attending next January as part of
Shanley’s pilgrimage where we will be honored
as the lead group of the 600,000 people march.
The significance of the event and our role in it
is something that they are both proud of being
a part of day in and day out. Megan explained
how in the halls of Shanley she could be proud to
be Catholic and do things like say the Pledge of
Allegiance.
All three students and parents spoke about how
respectful students in our schools are, and that
when they are not, there is still an expectation
from peer to peer and adult to peer that there is
a level of respect different than in other learning
environments. On the topics of uniforms and
The Miranda children
lunches there was a
variety of opinions
shared, but all agreed
that these were not
the big picture. The
realization that there is a
big picture is significant
to me! Earl and Rebecca
also emphasized how
having their children in
Megan, Jordan and Lexi
an environment where
Miranda
what they teach and
expect at home is supported at school and how
their children’s peer groups are parented by
parents with similar beliefs and values is well
worth the investment. He went on to say that
when these attributes are coupled with academic
excellence the picture is complete.
What struck me the most in my conversations
with the Miranda family was the sense that
making sacrifices to attend our schools is not
something they hide, celebrate or talk about on
a regular basis, but it is still understood that a
Catholic Education is of great value. Among the
three children there was no sense of entitlement,
but an appreciation for the opportunities their
parents are giving them in the areas of faith,
learning and service. Earl and Rebecca likewise
are not looking for accolades because of their
commitment to Catholic Education, but they do
possess a great sense of pride in their investment
that will pay dividends that are unimaginable.
Next year there will be seven Miranda children
in our schools. One at Nativity, Olivia; two at
Holy Spirit, Jake and Hailey; two in Sullivan,
Jordan and Summer; and two in Shanley, Lexi
and Megan. We are blessed to have families chose
us as a partner in raising their children. We the
educators and support staff in the Network take
pride in our work. There is also a great sense of
responsibility we as a Catholic School have when
people invest in us as the Miranda family and so
many others have done. Please know that if we
are to reach the pinnacle of our potential it takes
all of us, employees, families, friends, graduates
and families of graduates to reach us working
together. So, thank you for your continued
support and prayers.

The Sundance woman: MSUM director of health volunteers
each January at film festival
By:Merrie Sue Holtan, INFORUM
Published January 15, 2014 in The Forum
Moorhead - In 1964, United Artists premiered a film
in London promoting Beatlemania. “It’s Been a Hard
Day’s Night,” a title inspired by Beatle drummer
Ringo Starr, became one of Time Magazines great 100
films of all times.
It also played to packed crowds at the Fargo Theatre.
Mary and Carol Helms, fourth- and fifth-graders at
the time, stood in line to buy tickets to see the movie
– 14 times.
attended Sundance
in 1998 and says
she was worn out
from seeing all the
films and wanted to
become a part of the
festival. She then
convinced her sister
to join her.
In 1848, Mormon pioneers first explored the
mountainous area at 7,000 feet above sea level, 30
miles southeast of Salt Lake City.
“I work parties
(sometimes of 2,000
people) and special
events, and my
sister works passes
and packages,”
Carol says. “There
are many parties,
opening, closing,
street parties,

events, but the
final award party
is a lot of fun. I serve as a crowd liaison, setting up,
taking down, and I’ve learned a new skill – tying very
attractive tablecloths.”
Today Park City, population of 8,000, hosts millions
of tourists a year including the 45,000 patrons of
the Sundance Film Festival held for two weeks each
January.
One year the pair worked a big private party, where
Carol ended up at coat check and made $70 in tips.
“We went out to a fancy restaurant and paid with onedollar bills,” Mary recalls.
In 1981, actor Robert Redford set out to provide a
venue in this remote natural setting for independent
film artists to explore and take creative risks without
commercial and political pressure. The Sundance
Film Foundation and Festival discovers and develops
these artists from across the globe.
Carol explains that volunteers have to apply in the fall
and be 18 years old.
“It really showed me the power of film,” says Carol
(Helms) Grimm, director of health and wellness at
Minnesota State University Moorhead. “OMG. I’ll
never forget the opening when the Beatles hit the
stage running right at us.”
Her love of the big screen has led her to a 14-year
stint each January as a volunteer – along with
her sister who now lives in Omaha, Neb. – at the
Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Carol has
also served on the board of the Fargo Theatre for six
years.
THE SUNDANCE BACKDROP
This year, Mary and Carol will volunteer starting on
Tuesday for the second week of the festival. Mary first
She works alongside college students, interns, Park
City locals and people from all over the country.
Shifts can be from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Veteran volunteers
can pick their venues, and Carol has been at the
Prospector Theatre for about 10 years.
“Park City is not a large town,” Carol says. “Movie

venues are everywhere, libraries, school, theaters,
civic buildings and hotels. We receive training in
person and online to let us know what is new each
year. It’s all about excellent customer service.”
Volunteers pay their own transportation and housing
but receive tickets/vouchers to see films and “tons of
stuff including really cool jackets.”
Depending on the year, Carol will see up to eight
films. Her most memorable have been, “The Station
Agent,” “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” “Maria Full of
Grace,” “Blair Witch Project,” and “Way Way Back.”
One year, Carol sat next to film critic Roger Ebert,
whom she describes as great to talk to and a “real
regular guy.”
Another time she worked a film venue, and a
gentleman approached her and said, “I realize I have
my daughter’s tickets and need to bring them to her.
Will you recognize me when I come back?”
“I certainly will, Mr. Vice President,” Carol said.
“It was VP Al Gore there to support his film,
‘Inconvenient Truth.’ He was very gracious and
humble.”
This year, Carol has the documentary “Ivory Tower,”
about higher education on her must-see list as well as
“Rudderless,” a feature film with William H. Macy.
RETURN TO REAL LIFE
Carol, the oldest of six siblings, graduated from
Shanley High School, where she learned community
activism from her mother and concern for social
justice issues from the sisters who taught at the
school. This deep background led her to North
Dakota State University, where she majored in
Social Studies education and worked for Campus
Attractions, where she brought in films, acts,
coffeehouse entertainment and programming for
students.
After a brief stint teaching, Carol became the
volunteer and public education coordinator as a
Vista volunteer for the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center,
which turned into a full-time position for 16 years.
“I wanted to get active in something related to
women’s issues,” Carol says. “It was a driving force
for me.”
Carol earned a graduate degree in management from
the University of Mary.
She spent the next 10 years at Fargo Cass Public
Health as Director of Health Promotions, working
with such issues as family planning and sexually
transmitted diseases. In 2008, she became the
director of Health and Wellness at MSUM.
“I see the biggest changes for college students in the
area of mental health,” Carol says. “Students with
mental health issues have more pharmaceuticals
available to them, so they are now able to attend
college. We are there to help them manage that and
the stress.”
“I like volunteering for Sundance because it is so
different from my real life,” Carol says. “If you like
film, Sundance is the place to be. It’s a celebration of
film – upbeat, exciting, and an electric environment.”

What’s Happening in our Schools
Radio Club
By Tim Cruff, Shanley Science Teacher and Radio Club Advisor
On September 18th, 2012, the United
States Communication Commission
approved a license for the Shanley High
School Amateur Radio Club; call sign
KD0TCP. Since then, the call sign has
been heard in Europe, Japan, South
America, Canada, Cuba, and all over the
United States. The club at this time, has
eight members that have passed their
FCC examinations and we have more
studying for the next exams to be given in
May at the Court House Annex in Fargo.
The students operate from a small radio
station on the second floor of Shanley
High School where they were able to
establish antennas in the attic of the
school. When the weather is warmer; you
may see them outside after school setting
up portable antennas, working off a
generator, or using battery-powered high frequency,
very high frequency, and ultra-high frequency radios;
to make national and international contacts.
Some of our students are members of the Red River
Radio Amateurs, which is a very active organization
that has provided emergency communication
capabilities in the Red River Valley for years. Some
students are also members of the American Radio
Relay League (ARRL); the national organization that
is the primary amateur radio organization within the
United States. The ARRL informed us that to their
knowledge, Shanley is the only high school club that
has established lettering criteria based on school
service, community service, and continuing education
To date; our students have provided service to a
multitude of public events in the Red River Valley.
They usually provide emergency communications
to assist individuals that are participating in
various community-based events such as, the Fargo
Marathon, the Buffalo River Trail Run, the Muscular
Dystrophy Bike Run, the Rotary Bike Run, and the
Sky-Warn system.
The club will be assisting the University of North
Dakota with their High-Altitude Balloon Research
Radio Club Members operate equipment
projects in April and June as part of the tracking
& recovery team, and the club is assembling a
cross-band communication systems that will be
deployed on the balloons to provide long-range radio
communication.
In April, the Shanley High School Radio Club is
hosting the Emergency Communications Trailer that
will be the local base-of-operations for the North
Dakota Radio contest, and at the end of June, is the
International Field Day; where the students will be
setting up emergency communications at a remote
site (camping), using generators, battery systems,
and solar cells to make contacts all over the globe
as a practice for regional, national, or international
emergency events.
So far, all equipment for the club has been donated
by local Hams, and the program has cost JPII Schools
nothing to operate. The club is hoping to operate
long-term through donations, or by selling excess
equipment.

off. The Deacons finished 26-9 with another EDC
Tournament runner-up and finished fourth at the
state tournament. Fraase received second team allstate honors her freshman year.
She continued to blossom the following season.
The main source of offense for the Deacons, Fraase
carried Shanley to a 24-10 record, a third straight
EDC Tournament runner-up and fifth place at the
state tournament. She was an all-stater again her
sophomore year, except this time she made it on the
first team. “We had a really good year that year but
improvement was a must before the next season,’
Fraase said.
The summer before her junior season Fraase gave
a verbal commitment to the University of North
Dakota to play volleyball. “It was exciting to make
that decision because it is a great program up there
(Grand Forks),” Fraase said.

Score. Repeat. If you venture into McCormick

in common, however. Fraase was named the 2013
Gatorade Player of the Year for the sport of volleyball.
Jacobson was named the 2014 Gatorade Player of the
Year for the sport of girls basketball.
Fraase began her varsity career as an eighth grader.
That season she helped lead Shanley to a 24-9
record that included a runner-up finish at the EDC
Tournament and a seventh place finish at the state
tournament. The following season Fraase took
With the decision out of the way Fraase was able
to focus on her final two high school season. She
dominated the competition again this past fall,
eclipsing the 1,000 kill mark in the process. The
Deacons finished first in the EDC regular season as
well as tournament. They took third place at state
and eclipsed the 30 win mark for the first time in
school history, finishing 31-3. Fraase led the Deacons
with 491 kills her junior year. She finished the season
with 1,278 total kills in her career. She was named to
first team all-state for the second consecutive season.
Jacobson, not unlike Fraase, began her playing career
in middle school. She made the varsity roster as a
seventh grader. Jacobson played limited minutes in
her inaugural year on a team that lost in the state
title game to Fargo North. The following season
she assumed the starting point guard role. She hit
the ground running her first full season. She was
the second leading scorer at 12.8 points per game.
She was first on the team and fourth in the EDC in
assists at 3.6 per game. She also led the conference
in three point percentage, connecting on 46.6% of
her attempts. She help the Deacons to a 19-6 record,
a runner-up finish at the EDC Tournament and a
fourth place finish at the state tournament. The
following season was Jacobson’s coming out party.

She burst onto the scene by averaging a team
high 15.5 points and 5.0 assists per contest. She
also stole the ball 2.9 times per game. Shanley
won the EDC Championship behind Jacobson
and advanced the state semifinals before falling
to Bismarck Century. They finished in third place
at 22-3 overall. But something was still missing
from Jacobson’s resume, a state championship.
“We lost in the semifinal game and that was really
disappointing so we worked hard to not feel that
feeling again,” Jacobson said.
Sarah’s sophomore year was dominant. 21.7 points,
6.8 assists, 2.9 steals per game, 52 three pointers,
43.3% from behind the arc solidified herself on
the all-state team for the second consecutive year.
She led Shanley to an EDC Championship and a
state championship. She dominated on the title
bout, scoring 28 points while the entire Minot team
scored just 29. She was named tournament MVP and
was an unanimous selection to the all-tournament
team. “That weekend was so much fun and the
championship was just the icing on the proverbial
cake,” Jacobson added.
Alivia Fraase and Sarah Jacobson have been wowing
spectators since middle school. Whether it is a high
velocity kill or a 22 foot three pointer, they have skills
that their compatriots and competitors alike don’t
have. A year and two years remaining at Shanley,
respectively, the sky’s the limit for these two bonafide
Sarah Jacobson
stars. Shanley fans and opposing fans have been
blessed with these two wonderful talents and have
more to look forward in the future. Congratulations
to Fraase and Jacobson on their Gatorade Player of
the Year awards.
“It is really cool to win this award and my teammates
deserve as much credit as I do,” Fraase said.
“Honored, that is probably the word that comes to
mind. A.J. won it last year and now me this year,
it has been a really special two years for our whole
family,” Jacobson said.
Deacons devotion: Eighth-grader with muscular dystrophy
known as Shanley’s No. 1 fan
By: Tom Mix INFORUM
Origianally published in The Forum
Fargo - Fargo Shanley’s Sid Cichy Stadium and
McCormick Gymnasium are the two favorite hangout
spots for 14-year-old Joe Keller.
Both venues are where Keller’s heroes call home, and
given the countless hours he spends at both locations,
the venues are his home, too.
Keller, an eighth-grader at Sullivan Middle School, is
widely known as one of the most fervent supporters
of Shanley High School athletics and he has the ticket
stubs to prove it.
“Shanley is the only school I follow,” Keller said.
“I really enjoy watching all the sports at Shanley.
Everyone is a part of the game and that is what I like.
It’s fun to be a fan and fun to watch the players do
well.”
At age 5, Keller was diagnosed with muscular
dystrophy – a group of muscle diseases characterized
by progressive weakness and degeneration of skeletal
muscles that control movement.
After the diagnosis, Keller needed the assistance of
leg braces and by the time he entered fourth grade, he
began using a motorized wheelchair fulltime.
Actively competing in his favorite sports was off the
table. Cheering and supporting his friends that could
play was not.
“He is a special guy,” Shanley junior all-state

he is totally joyful and positive. As a player it was
always great to know he was at our games.”
Keller is a student manager for the eighth
grade boys basketball team at Sullivan. His job
description is to dish out encouragement.
“We are sort of an all-star team,” Keller said of the
team. “I look forward to every tournament and
every game.”
Since Keller began following Shanley athletics,
three games – the 2008 boys soccer state
championship, the 2012 girls soccer state
championship and the 2013 boys basketball state
championship – stand out.
Joe Keller watches a Fargo Shanley basketball game
with his friends on Friday. Keller, who was diagnosed
with muscular dystrophy at age 5, is a student manager
for the eighth grade boys basketball team and is known
as one of the Deacons’ most supportive fans.

linebacker Alex Berg said. “He is always talking to the
football players and loves watching the sport. I know
he wants to be out there so bad, but he is there every
game cheering us on. No one compares to him. He is
our No. 1 fan.”
“Even though Joe can’t play sports, he takes a great
interest in them and has passion for them,” added
Joe’s father, Gary Keller. “That is a great feeling and
I’m proud of him.”
Keller’s sister Kayla is a senior at Shanley and plays
soccer. When the Deacons girls soccer team defeated
Bismarck St. Mary’s in a shootout to capture the 2012
state championship, Keller took a lap around the field
with the Deacons’ team flag in hand.
“He never misses a game and always puts in the extra
effort to get to all of them,” Kayla Keller said. “He has
formed friendships with my teammates and other
players, too. Whenever we play Fargo Davies, some
of the girls from the team who play on my travel team
come over and give Joe a hug. The friendships he has
made are bigger than the game.”
“Joe brings a lot of passion to Shanley athletics,”
added Carly Mickelson, a former three-sport athlete
for the Deacons and 2013 Shanley graduate. “A lot
of people can cheer and be supportive at games, but
Keller said the 2013 boys basketball title is his
favorite. Following the victory, every member of
the team came up to Joe to thank him for being in
Bismarck that night last March.
“Even though Shanley might lose a game here and
there, I’ll think about last year’s state championship
game,” Keller said. “I know that might sound like
I’m living in the past, but I’m just so glad we got that
state title.”
Keller never shows up to a game without Deacons
gear. He has a specific hat for every sport, but his
lucky hat is one that he has worn since 2011 – the
year the Shanley girls basketball team made it to the
state championship game.
Keller said the hat has a lot of sentimental value and
is autographed by players on that 2011 squad as well
as Shanley players in the seasons that have followed.
Shanley athletes also support Keller. Every year, the
boys basketball team designates one home game
to wear T-shirts that read “Joe’s Heroes” during
warmups and also join the Keller family at Fargo’s
annual Walk for Wishers fundraising event for the
Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“It definitely gives our team a sense of pride, knowing
Joe has our back,” Shanley basketball standout
Patrick Strom said. “We have his back, too. We love
seeing him at the games, giving him high-fives and
going to the Make-A-Wish events the Keller family
participates in. We love supporting him and we are
glad to have his support as well.”

TOGETHER! we are a vibrant Catholic Community
with unlocked potential. Our Together Campaign will
allow the Blessed John Paul II Catholic Schools to
operate from a position of strength for the future and
realize our collective capacity. By constructing Trinity
Elementary School we will capitalize on the amazing
growth in the area and provide a steady stream of
students to fill Shanley and Sullivan School.
Bishop Folda wrote: “As part of our mission to serve, we
are truly blessed to have Blessed John Paul II Catholic
Schools, which provides our youth with an academic
tradition of excellence, a faithful and inspiring
ministerial team, and strong support from our local
parishes. With our many blessings comes the
responsibility of providing an environment to support the spiritual and academic growth of our
children. Strategic planning efforts within our community have indicated that it is time to move forward
with the building of Trinity Elementary School and to address lingering debt and expansion projects at
Shanley/ Sullivan. It is time for all of us to come together as a Catholic Community to address the new
needs and the ongoing mission of our Catholic Schools”
We are investing in our Catholic youth by providing a world class learning environment, focused
through the prism of faith. We have consistently excelled at academics, sports & activities, but our
foundation in faith is what really distinguishes our schools. Together! We can build upon this
tradition, and inspire excellence through faith, learning and service for the future!
