April 2015
Brother Cyril Litecky (1926-2015)
We are sad to announce that the Roncalli community has lost our founding principal, Brother Cyril Litecky, who passed away on Saturday, April 4th.  Br. Cyril served as principal of Roncalli from 1965-1973.  A mass in memory of Br. Cyril will be held on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at 1:50p.m. in the Zimmer Auditorium at Roncalli High School. A memorial fund to support student financial aid has been established by friends of Brother Cyril at Roncalli.

Two Herb Kohl Excellence Scholarship Recipients
Congratulations to Roncalli seniors Katherine Froelich (left) and Anastasia Konopacki (right), who were selected to receive the Herb Kohl Excellence Scholarship. Recipients have demonstrated excellence in the academic arena and high motivation to achieve, have displayed a broad range of activity and leadership outside the academic setting, and have shown strong promise for succeeding in college and beyond.  Only 162 scholarships were awarded to students of the 700+ state high schools.  Recipients are selected by a statewide committee composed of civic leaders, and representatives of education-related associations and the program's co-sponsors.
Greg Jahnke is 3rd Roncalli Football Coach Inducted into Hall of Fame
Greg Jahnke (right) was recently inducted into the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame.  Greg is a 1971 graduate of Roncalli and played football at Roncalli and led the Jets to a state victory in the championship game played at Lambeau Field.  Greg continued to play football and basketball at Carroll College then returned to Roncalli in 1976 to teach and coach under head coach and Hall of Famer Ron Klestinski (center) and later became offensive coordinator for Ray Baranczyk (left), another member of the Hall of Fame.  Roncalli has had three head football coaches over the school's 50 year history and they have all now become members of the Hall of Fame.  Congratulations!
Sean-Patrick Oswald '07, Incorporates "Pamoja Social Enterprises"
  
Last year, Sean-Patrick traveled to Kenya with a former Duke track teammate to try to start a mentoring program there. After many months of planning and working with some partners in Kenya, they officially incorporated their nonprofit this year (Pamoja Social Enterprises) and are heading back to Kenya with several collegiate runners this June/July.  They are trying to raise $10,000 for a sports camp for ~100 Kenyan youth this summer.  They'll be paying for everything at the camp – food, lodging, transportation, sports equipment – so we have a bit of work to do to reach our goals.  Please CLICK HERE for a letter explaining his new endeavor.
