Father Ryan Honors Our Veterans

A Catholic education encourages students to use their voice to open minds and change the world. We congratulate Ella Kopperud '21, who placed 2nd in the state's Voice of Democracy essay contest. She's pictured here with English teacher Randy Lancaster '83.

Our 15th Annual Veterans Breakfast was held on Friday, November 8, 2019 in the Father Ryan Dining Hall. 

We were extremely honored to welcome Captain Patrick Marchetti '09 as the speaker for our Veterans Breakfast. Captain Marchetti is a 2013 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He was joined in attendance by his extended family, including his grandmother Betty Marchetti, whose husband Gino '49 served in the military as well.

Also in attendance were numerous veterans from the Father Ryan community, including John Burns '44, who served in World War II. 

The Father Ryan Alumni Association is proud to host this free event and wonderful salute to veterans in the Father Ryan Family. The sacrifice they have made for our country will never be forgotten.
