To officially put it out there, I finally finished my associate degree in Accounting. I got it from Durham Tech, and although I could extend to getting a bachelor degree, for the time-being after the gaps of time and, figuratively, the pushing and shoving, to come through with if, I am moving forward to making my future after having built it😉There is a Treasury position in the American Tobacco Campus kind of in the middle of downtown Durham I am considering. It's been a while.. but I clearly have never forgotten how I got to where I am today🕺 Congratulations Geof!

I rent houses at Bucknell, I can tell these kids never went to prep school and everyone waited on them in high school. Thank you St. Thomas More for the discipline and self respect I learned in prep school. When I rented on college, my house was always clean. We respected the property we leased. These kids are clueless sometimes for being allegedly smart.

The first picture was probably from 1996, I graduated that year. My STM varsity LAX team. The second picture is my new crew, I've been serving as a civilian police officer for more than 15 years. However I was shot in the line of duty earlier this year and have still not returned to work, and will probably be medically retired in the near future. I miss the good old days at STM. --Pete Tanzilli '96

Hello to my fellow Chancellors,

Hope this post finds you well. Wanted to share an update and cool story with you all. I've recently moved to Portland Oregon where I have been working for the Timbers, the local MLS franchise. I am a Sales rep and reach out to people who've made it to a match recently.

I came across an account that had a Connecticut address and decided to give it a call anyway given how many people have been relocating to the city lately. Turned out to be Asa Christiana who is married to one of the Autencios and now lives in Portland as well! Such a small world we live in, proud to be a Chancellor and glad to have made a new connection here in Portland.

Following up on my time at STM.. If I learned anything during my tenure at Saint Thomas More, it's that no matter what you do, it's important to give it your all. Grades that you get in classes not only reflect your academic performance but also include an effort grade, and as long as you're willing to put in the effort, you will find success in many, if not all aspects in life. Also, another important thing to remember is that although grades do not seem important during high school or college, when you go into the working world, your paycheck is essentially a "grade" and you reap what you sow. Another important thing to remember is that although STM might open up new challenges, overcoming these challenges will help you create some of the memories that you will cherish most in life. So to all graduates this year, as well as incoming students, and current students, I hope that you have a great experience at STM as well as moving forward, and wish you guys all the best of luck.

P.S. It's never a bad idea to get on a teacher's good side, because if you show respect to your teachers, you will receive at the very least the same amount of respect, but usually more.

Prosper Jeanphillipe, ‘12

Hello STM! Just here to report that I finished my second semester with a GPA of 3.54

Devon Sutherland, ‘10

Hey STM,
I hope you are all well. I've been working on my music quite a bit recently. I have a couple of shows coming up in the next month or so. I've been in the studio a lot recently formulating my own sound and a new sub-genre of electronic dance music. Here is a preview of what to expect. Project Blackbird is a track that I've been working on for about a few months now. I'll be finishing it up soon with vocals and it will hopefully be released in August sometime. As always much love and keep CruzeControling! ~Scott

Mike "Mule" Mulach '69, who attended STM for a Postgraduate year, dropped us a line from his home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. He noted "The lesson's learned in discipline and working with others to achieve a common goal has paid off for me in life and working for a major corporation. All the best to the teammates and PG class of '69." During his time at STM, Mike was a member of the football and golf teams.

Mike is a National Account Representative for the Xerox Corporation. He's been with Xerox for 32 years, with his major account being Office Depot. After graduating from T-More, he attended St. Thomas University in Miami and earned a degree in Business Management in 1973.
