AC’s TED Talk Series - Ideas Worth Sharing

Have you ever seen a TED talk? Well now we have a series of alumni lined up to excite and inspire our students!
This course invites alumni to present their own TED talks to us. Arlington Catholic Alumni come from various backgrounds and professions, such as lawyers, professional athletes, artists, professors, authors, scientists, and more and discuss their “ideas worth sharing.” This is an excellent opportunity for current AC students to discuss new ideas, examine the influences affecting their own decision-making, and to explore the many paths that are open to them in the future. The format includes a presentation followed by a question and answer segment.  So far we welcomed Alumni Sergeant Detective Bryan Gallagher '93, an Arlington Police Officer, who shared with our students his passion for policing and that success is measured in loving what you do.  Magali Bourghol Hickey '93, who holds a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry and Chemical Crystallography, is the Director in Formulation Development for Alkermies, Inc. Magali talked about her life's work in science and her strong faith. Board Certified Behavior Analyst Craig Estee '90, came in and shared his insight about Behavioral Analysis and special needs. We look forward to hearing from Communications expert Kevin Greeley '68, Army Officer John Harding'87, Cooperative Education Coordinator, Dierdre Lee Jordan '88, Theater Director, Dance Teacher, and Choreographer Rachel Bertone '03 and Family Medicine Doctor, Marie Walsh Condon M.D. '90.

Class of 1974

Barton Hall

December 17th, 2017 preceding the production of AC/DC's Really Rosie, it was announced that Dr. Larry Barton, an alumnus of both Saint Agnes School and Arlington Catholic High School, and his wife Eliza, have made a very generous $100,000 contribution to name the stage in Saint Agnes School Barton Hall in honor of his parents because they “made many sacrifices, as all parents do, to send their three sons to Saint Agnes School, and whatever success Larry has achieved in life, he directly attributes to them and the education he received here and at Arlington Catholic.”

Class of 1979

Arlington Catholic Alumni Janeen Romie Class of 1979 was part of the team that was awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics.  Janeen is a Detector Group Leader for LIGO Livingston.  LIGO, the Lazer Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory, is an instrument that detected gravitational waves.  Janeen will be honoring us as our 2018 Commencement Speaker!

Class of 1966

Classmate Dr. Joe Aurelia has written, Why Not Me: A Brave Journey with Cancer by Joseph Aurelia.  Joe wanted to share the story of the loss of his beloved wife, Camille.  The book details her battle with cancer and their journey through its treatment process.  This book shares information for people with cancer, caretakers, family members, and caring professionals alike.  Joe’s experience taught him the need to treat the person with cancer, and not just the cancer. At heart, Why Not Me teaches readers to help their loved one recognize both physical and emotional pain, and to alleviate suffering as much as possible.  You can purchase your copy on Amazon or use this link
