The 30th Annual Austin Open Golf Tournament was an overwhelming success, raising $65,000 - the highest in a number of years. Thank you to all our golfers, sponsors, auction item donors, and raffle prize donors!

The chilly weather did not keep golfers away - after checking in, enjoying lunch and hitting a few practice balls, the sold-out afternoon flight kicked off at 12:00 noon at Indian Ridge Country Club in Andover, MA.

Our dinner-only guests joined the festivities at 5:00 pm for the cocktail hour, followed by a buffet dinner, and everyone took part in our raffles, silent and live auctions.

Proceeds from the event are supporting the transformation of the David Nelson '81 Weight Room into the David Nelson '81 Fitness Center (located in Meelia Hall). Michael Joyce ’18 thanked participants for their support and explained how important the renovated fitness center will be not only to student-athletes, but to the entire Austin Prep community when it comes to achieving health and fitness goals.  

The day would not have been a success without the efforts of Austin Open Golf Committee Chair Becky McKie P’16, P’17, and committee members Steve Reddy P’16, P’18 and Andy Tucker P’19 and the support of the Austin Prep administration and staff. We are also grateful to our volunteers, including students Joshua Bartnicki ’18Logan Bravo ’18Will Hamilton ’18Nick Hampoian ’18Michael Joyce ’18Mitchell Kennedy ’18Shane McKie ’17, and Liam O’Donnell ’18; parents Julie Bonavita P’21Mike and Carol Ciccarelli P’15, P’18Karen Goscinak P’20Jessica Hampoian P’18, P’20Pamela Jenks ’20, and Maria Mangano P’17, P’20; and alumni Drew Gerety ’16, and Alicia Green ’17.

In May of 1967, Richard J. Meelia was on the campus of Austin Preparatory School in Reading, wearing a robe and mortarboard, eager to embrace his future as a high school graduate. 

Nearly 50 years ago to the day, Mr. Meelia found himself again on the campus of Austin Prep wearing a robe and mortarboard – this time as the Commencement Keynote Speaker, sharing the wisdom of his life’s experiences with the class of 2017. 

“So 50 years ago, I sat where you sit,” Mr. Meelia said to the 131 graduates during Austin Prep’s graduation ceremony on Sat., May 20.  “Maybe some of my lessons learned will help inform your decisions as your life progresses.” 

Mr. Meelia retired in 2011 as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Covidien Plc, a leading $11 billion global healthcare products company. A graduate of St. Anselm College and Boston College, his first job was with American Hospital Supply. He also previously worked at Kendall, another medical supply company. 

It is important to adapt to change, embrace leadership and always be aware of your integrity, he said. 

“I am very confident that each of you lives with integrity,” Mr. Meelia, of Boston, said. “But not everyone sees a bright line between OK and not OK. In the rat race of life these lines can get blurred, and when they do you must always be aware of them.  As you advance through your life always keep integrity front and center.” 

Austin Prep’s class of 2017 is ready for the interesting world it is headed into, said class valedictorian Timothy Cray of Melrose, including the challenges posed by new technologies and nationalist movements across the globe. 

“In spite of all of this intrigue and uncertainty, I can guarantee one constant,” he said. “If you are a kind, charismatic, caring person, you will do well for yourself. You will never ‘outcompute’ or ‘outproduce’ a robot, but you will always ‘outsmile’ it. 

Salutatorian Jasmine Joseph of Billerica noted that the class of 2017 had a strong sense of community, and encouraged each other through the difficult times. 

“Think of our community like a puzzle,” she said. “We all fit into the puzzle somehow.  I would not have become this person had it not been for all my friends, classmates, and teachers. And what’s more, I can leave Austin knowing that my experiences equipped me to move on to an even bigger, brighter future.” 

Collectively, the 131 graduates were offered $8 million in college scholarships – about $60,000 per student. All were accepted into four-year institutions of higher learning, and four are attending international colleges. Congratulations to the following:

Emma Tilley of Billerica did something different for her valedictory remarks at the Austin Preparatory School class of 2016 graduation on Saturday, June 4. 

She asked her 140 classmates to contribute their words of wisdom in the form of memories or advice, and presented the “Commencement Speech of the Class of 2016.” The remarks were a gift to family members and teachers – a reflection of everything the graduates have learned so far along their journey. 

 “College is a place full of new people and experiences, but make sure you stay true to yourself because you can change the world,” Emma said. “There’s nothing cooler than being passionate about something and owning it … 100 percent of the time, passion is so much better than not caring.” 

Keynote speaker Joseph Sciacca Jr., of Haverhill, editor-in-chief of the Boston Herald, said two challenges lay ahead for the class of 2016: leadership and service. 

“Leadership without service is empty,” he said. “Consider what it means to lead … be confident enough to be the force for change.” 

Sciacca is a graduate of Austin Prep class of 1975, and a past parent from the class of 2013. He also sits on the school’s Board of Trustees. 

The class of 2016 commencement also marked an important milestone for the Reading school – five members from the first graduating class of 1966 were on hand to celebrate their 50-year reunion – the school’s first. 

Salutatorian Victoria McDermott of Wilmington recalled many of the things the class accomplished that seemed impossible only a short time ago. New adventures lay ahead. 

“After all the lessons we have learned at Austin Prep, I am certain we will all become very successful at our new schools and in our new lives,” Victoria said. “I can’t wait to hear about all the amazing things you all do in college and beyond.”

The class of 2016 includes:
