Dear JSerra Community ,
We have been successful at hiring a new President, Mr. Rich Meyer. Mr. Meyer and I were able to spend about 90 minutes together and discussed the position of President, his philosophy of education, his vision for JSerra and his family, kids, food and a host of other subjects. Mr. Meyer is accomplished as an administrator, an excellent conversationalist, has terrific family and business values, and in his heart believes JSerra is where he belongs professionally.
It is with a heavier, but grateful heart that I notify you that I am no longer your Interim President. While there are still a few weeks before Mr. Meyer reports to his new position, a Transition Team comprised of three members of the Board of Directors has been assembled and they will facilitate the transition process and support the new president for his first 3-6 months in office.
Without question you have at JSerra the nicest, most honest, hardest working, professional group of people with whom I have ever had the opportunity to work. OK – I did work in the insurance industry so maybe the bar isn’t that high! Still – it is an ensemble of tremendous individuals and an outstanding team that does important work in the building of our country’s future.
As I have encouraged our faculty and staff, I encourage you once more, be generous with your spirit, your faith, and your hope for JSerra Catholic High School to be and become all that God has intended. Invest in Mr. Meyer’s success as JSerra’s new President and continue to give priority to patience, charity, hope and faith to grow into the vision we share as the school of first choice in Catholic education in Orange County.
With love and gratitude,
Siempre Adelante –
JSerra moved to 5-0 on the season in a hard fought victory over Trabuco Hills Friday at Saddleback College, getting a major assist from junior Casey Eugenio, who accounted for three scores, including an interception return for a touchdown, as the Lions won 31-21.
The Lions took advantage of some early Trabuco mistakes, recovering a fumble on the first Mustang Drive deep in Lion territory, then holding the Mustangs off the scoreboard after a punt snap was fumbled, which started the second Mustang drive on the Lion 18.
Eugenio’s first big play came near the end of the first quarter, as he picked off Nathan Perry’s errant throw and took it in from 45 yards out, starting the scoring for the Lions. Perry and the Mustangs responded on the next drive, going 85 yards in 11 plays. The Lions then responded, as Dante Pettis took in a 23-yard strike from Nick Robinson in for a score. The Lions had one more score in them too, blocking a punt on ensuing Mustang possession through the end zone for a safety and a 16-7 halftime lead.
