We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

On December 1, you have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young men and women in our community- not just students who are current students at Walsh, but those that dream of attending Walsh Jesuit in the future.  Your donation will support the Warrior Fund, which benefits all students by offsetting the actual cost of a Walsh Jesuit education and helps us carry on our mission of graduating men and women for others who will make a difference in the world.

How Can You Help?

Helping to support Walsh Jesuit High School on Giving Tuesday is easy to do! 

Please consider donating to the Warrior Fund on December 1- Giving Tuesday! Make your gift even bigger by inspiring your friends and family to give.  You can help by spreading the word and sharing out posts through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. 

We have a great group of WJ students who are giving of themselves on Giving Tuesday as well- all who have completed their service hours- but are giving because, as they become men and women for others, they know it is the right thing to do- they know it is their job to help make the world a better place!  They are the faces of Walsh Jesuit High School- men and women for others!

Missy and Doug Wells of Stow, and Pat and Dave Kraninger of Chagrin Falls were this year’s recipients of Walsh Jesuit’s Manresa Award.

The Manresa Award, the school’s highest honor is presented to members of the Walsh Jesuit community who are outstanding exemplars of Walsh Jesuit’s mission, men and women for others, and who have served selflessly to further the school’s mission over the years.

During mass in Walsh Jesuit’s chapel of The North American Martyrs on November 11, 2015, Walsh Jesuit’s President, Karl Ertle spoke of the two couples who have lived the Jesuit magis, meaning “to do more” not only in their service to Walsh Jesuit, but to many other worthy causes in Northeast Ohio.

Missy and Doug Wells are members of Holy Family Parish in Stow and have been a part of the Walsh Jesuit community since 1997. Their five children, Ryan ’01, Courtney ’02, Meghan ’06, Mollie ’10 and Kevin ’14 attended Walsh Jesuit, and they have opened their home to a current Walsh Jesuit senior from Boys Hope Girls Hope of Northeast Ohio. Missy founded MOMS Ministry at Holy Family, an organization that helps families in need by providing meals, financial assistance and compassion for families in trauma. After the successful launch of the program at Holy Family, Missy was instrumental in starting the program at Walsh Jesuit many years ago. She has also worked with the Reeves family in establishing the Kelly Reeves Grief Care Counseling Center, which helps families with grief counseling after the loss of a loved one.

Doug serves on the Board of Walsh Jesuit as well as the Board of Boys Hope Girls Hope of Northeast Ohio. He also serves as Vice Chair of Holy Family Parish Finance Council and has served on the board of Catholic Social Services of Summit County. Their award recognizes their selfless and unwavering dedication to Walsh Jesuit and honors their true dedication to Walsh Jesuit’s motto, men and women for others.

Pat and Dave Kraninger have a true passion for Jesuit education. The two met as students at Marquette University, marrying their senior year on the campus of Marquette in December 1967. Dave and Pat have been involved with Marquette in various volunteer positions since graduation. Pat served on the National Marquette Alumni Association Board from 1994-2000, serving as President from 1999-2000.

They moved to Northeast Ohio in 1984 with their four children. Thanks to spotting a Walsh Jesuit bus on the highway, Pat and Dave enrolled their son, David ’87, followed soon by Daniel ’89 and Matthew ’97 into Walsh Jesuit High School. Unfortunately, Walsh Jesuit was not coed when their daughter Kathleen was ready for high school.

While their sons were attending Walsh Jesuit, Pat and Dave were involved in various activities, and served as POWWOW chairs in 1987. Pat was a member of the coed feasibility study committee, which in 1991 recommended to the Board that Walsh Jesuit go coed, and she also served on the Board of Trustees from 2005-2011.

Dave has served as volunteer property manager at their parish complex, St. Joan of Arc in Chagrin Falls since 1999. He also volunteers as a business consultant for the Geauga Growth Partnership by providing Geauga County businesses guidance to grow their business. Dave also served as the President of their homeowners association from 2009-2010.

They have remained committed to Walsh Jesuit well after their sons’ graduations. They most recently served as co-chairs for Walsh Jesuit’s 50th Anniversary Committee, and have played an active part in fundraising efforts for Walsh Jesuit’s endowment. Their award recognizes the

vision, passion and commitment they have shared with Walsh Jesuit for the last 30 years.

The Manresa Award was first presented in 1991, and has been awarded to over 25 recipients since inception. The award is named for a town in northern Spain where St. Ignatius of Loyola experienced a spiritual conversion. That experience led to his founding of the Society of Jesus in 1540.

McDonald’s owner/operator Sal Baglieri recently presented a $500 grant to Walsh Jesuit High School to benefit their Study Skills Office.

Walsh Jesuit’s Study Skills program seeks to challenge all Walsh Jesuit students and support them as they maximize their individual potential. Additionally, the program strives to strengthen students through organization, fostering personal responsibility and development of time management skills. This particular grant will be used to help purchase books that are in both English and Chinese to assist Walsh Jesuit’s international students with their education.

“This grant enables us to help meet the needs of our students and continue to provide a top tier education in Northeast Ohio,” said Mark Hassman, Principal at Walsh Jesuit.

Baglieri has supported multiple schools in the area throughout the years, and this $500 grant is the first to benefit Walsh Jesuit’s Study Skills Office.

Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, November 11, 2015— Walsh Jesuit senior, Andrew Kukla has made a commitment to continue his academic and athletic career at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. Kukla will play for the school’s NCAA Division III baseball program, and becomes the fourth member of the 2016 WJ baseball team to advance to the collegiate level. 

KUKLA ANDREW 12“We are extremely proud that Andrew will be joining Coach Burdette and his staff at Kenyon to further his academic and baseball career,” said head baseball coach, Chris Kaczmar. “Kenyon recruited him not only for his projection, but most importantly because he’s a strike thrower. Andrew is an extremely professional and mature young man that we are excited to have for one more year as a part of Walsh Jesuit baseball both inside and outside the lines.” 

Kukla’s other Walsh Jesuit baseball coaches echoed Kaczmar’s sentiment. “Andrew Kukla has grown immensely as a baseball player, a person and a leader throughout his time at Walsh Jesuit High School,” said Michael Palange, assistant WJ baseball coach. “Andrew is incredibly intelligent and always goes above and beyond to achieve his goals, whether on the playing field or in the classroom. Andrew’s continued hard work, passion and dedication will serve him well as he takes the next step in his athletic and academic careers at Kenyon and beyond.” 

Assistant baseball coach, Trey Bennett says, “Andrew is a true student of the game, and his growth and development as a baseball player has only been exceeded by his growth and development as a person. He is the type of player that every coach wants on a team, in that he can be trusted to be another coach on the field and in the dugout, and, no matter the circumstances or the situation, he has thrived in that role. Kenyon is not only getting a good baseball player, but, more importantly, they are getting an incredible person in Andrew Kukla.” 

He carries a 4.1 GPA, is a Commended Scholar and a member of the National Honor Society at Walsh Jesuit. He serves as a Eucharistic Minister at school and volunteers at Regina Health Center, Thea Bowman Center and is a member of Assumption Church. 

Kukla, who plans to major in Mathematics at Kenyon College, is the son of Craig and Eileen Kukla of North Royalton, Ohio.

Walsh Jesuit held a “purple out” on October 23, 2015 during the Walsh Jesuit vs. Benedictine football game; raising over $5,000 for the American Cancer Society.

     Walsh Jesuit freshman, Jackie Deininger is battling Lymphoma, and freshman Benedictine student, Anthony LaPlaca is battling non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Both schools held different events during the week of the football game to support each student battling cancer.

     With the help of Walsh Jesuit student government and Jackie Deininger, special “purple” shirts were sold to wear to the football game. Purple was chosen to show that “Warriors Fight Together.” The Walsh Jesuit Mothers’ Club held a bake sale and the Walsh Jesuit senior class held a 50/50 raffle at the football game to help raise funds for cancer. Both students were also honorary captains for the game.

Regan joins former Warrior and LHP Joe Mockbee ’13 at Michigan State and is the second Walsh Jesuit player this year headed to the Big 10 Conference. Regan is also the third member of the 2016 Warrior baseball team to advance to the collegiate level.

Regan helped lead the Warriors to their fourth straight North Coast League Championship, a District championship win, and a 26-4 record last year.  The Warriors have earned the number two ranking in the State this year by Prep Baseball and their ninth National ranking in school history.

"Brendan enters his second year as a starter and we are truly fortunate to have him in our middle infield for the next two years," said Chris Kaczmar.  "He is an extremely talented player who combines slick fielding, a strong arm, and a smooth, powerful swing.  He took an extraordinary jump this past year and his dedication is paying great dividends in many ways, and he is so passionate about being a student of the game. Above all, Brendan is truly a fine young man. Much like his older brother, he is a fine teammate, an extremely hard worker, and I admire him equally as much for how much he values opportunities for ministry outside the lines as I do for his gifts in baseball. As talented as he is, Brendan is very humble and is always looking for opportunities to give back. We are thrilled he will be joining Coach Boss at MSU."

Regan, who plans to major in Pre-Dentistry at Michigan State is the son of Tim and Tracey Regan of Sagamore Hills, Ohio. 

Walsh Jesuit senior, Lauren Demarchi has been selected to play in the 3rd Annual High School All-American Game on December 5, 2015 in Raleigh, NC. 40 of the nation’s elite players and six of the nation’s top coaches participate in this event. Demarchi will be attending Vanderbilt University in the fall. 


Ryan Kocevar ’16 interned this summer at the Cleveland Clinic in the Department of Immunology. The lab Kocevar worked for has found a way to treat non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, specifically ABC-DLBCL non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Kocevar and his team worked to help discover biological pathways that were triggered when this treatment was enacted. The importance of the treatment is that it is an alternative to chemotherapy, and many people who are sick with this form of cancer cannot receive chemotherapy due to its destructive tendencies. Ryan and his team have submitted their research papers to the New England Journal of Medicine. Way to go Ryan!
