1 The Banner Egg-citing times at BC! Students in Physics and Honors Physics participated in a design challenge during the week of October 3rd. The challenge was to design a landing device for an egg that would allow it to safely land from a height of 4 meters (about 12 feet). The students had limited time to build the egg lander and the available materials were ten soda straws, ten popsicles sticks, five rubber bands and various lengths of string and tape. More than half the students were successful in their effort to design and create the egg landing device. Winning designs will be displayed in the Physics Lab, A-4.

2 Happy November, Everyone! Letter from the Principal... Our weather is finally cooler, and soon we ll be wishing it were warmer! During this past month, our Sophomores and Juniors went through the rigors of standardized testing. Our freshmen enjoyed the first of their yearly retreats with Fr. Ronald, our Campus Minister, and the Religious Studies Department teachers. Thanks to Stewart Pinkerton, Director of Guidance/Counselor and College Advisor, this year our Seniors were very fortunate to have numerous career stations to visit. As Greg Markiton, our Advancement Team Director said in an to alumni asking if they would be interested in speaking to our Cadets, One thing that makes our Benedictine family special is the diversity of our students and alumni. 5,000 alumni have walked the halls at BC and they are now serving the communities where they live. Benedictine is fortunate to have many of these successful alumni serving in various capacities throughout the Coastal Empire. To that end, the aforementioned career stations were led by T.J. Hollis 95 on the topic of law, Mike Viers 81 on Banking, Vincent Ferraro 76 on Construction, Brooks Ziegler 01 on Insurance, John DeLoach 85 on Sales and Marketing, and Dick McAllaster, Board member, on Business/Investing. I have always believed that education and learning take many forms. While books are important and homework serves the purpose of practicing what one has been taught, nothing is more important than a teacher. Nikos Kazantzakis wrote Zorba the Greek and of teachers he said, "Ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own." Our Studio Art classes toured the Jepson and the Telfair Museums thanks to Sandra Levin, Fine Arts Department Chair. Physics students had their annual Egg Drop Contest designing containers for a raw egg hoping that, when dropped from a 12 ladder, the egg would survive. Much credit is deserved as, under the direction of James Hicks, Science Department Chair and Physics Teacher, many did, in fact, survive. Those are just 2 examples of the inspiring and enquiring nature of our faculty. Our Football and Cross-Country Teams are doing well this season. Coach Britt and his staff have done an outstanding job making our Cadets physically strong and mentally prepared to face their opponents. I don t know of anyone who has not thoroughly enjoyed the games we ve played at historic Grayson Stadium. Love those Friday Night lights! Likewise Coach Curley has his runners challenging their adversaries! Their region championship is days away from now, so by the time you read this, we may know how well they fared! Our runners are a tight knit bunch, each of whom supports the others as the sprint the last yards of their run. As you might imagine, wrestling, basketball, and swimming are gearing up for their seasons as well. As you probably know, BC offers every Georgia High School Association (GHSA) sport for boys! Not bad for a small school and what an opportunity for our boys! Most of our coaches are faculty members here at BC, many coach more than one sport. They deserve so much credit for the countless hours and effort they dedicate to our Cadets. They love BC and they love the boys. As we give thanks for all the blessings God has given us, the Faculty, Staff, and Administration wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving. Warm regards, Deborah A. Antosca, Ed.D. Principal

By: Shelly Roberts On November 18, Benedictine will experience its second annual Chariot Races, featuring the Latin classes' varied designs and methods of attack. For freshmen Latin students, it's their first opportunity to achieve this glory, and for returning Latin students, it's their chance for revenge in a rematch! This year the Latin I, II, and III classes will test their designs against each other, racing around the BC track. Each class is divided into groups of three, and those groups are given five weeks to design and build their own chariot. One student serves as the charioteer, while the other two students in the group provide the "Cadet-power" necessary to propel their design. This project involves research, applications of skills from other disciplines and classes, and the values of teamwork and trust. Last year was a huge success, attracting large audiences of fellow classmates, teachers, and even some parents! Parents and families are invited again this year to watch their sons racing in action. The more support we can attract to this event, the more attention we hope can be drawn to the exciting and unusual applications of BC's excellent academic tradition. Here's to hoping for beautiful weather and exceeding glory to the winners!

5 November Faculty and Staff Birthdays Joanna Wood - 11/25 Deb Antosca - 11/27 New Club Offerings Our devoted faculty and staff have listened to the interests and activities of our Cadets and have come up with a few new extra-curricular opportunities for the Cadets to gain new experiences. Our Chemistry teacher and resident rock star and band member, Rigel Crockett is starting a School of Rock Club. This club will offer our musically talented boys the opportunity to play as a band, and maybe even start their own! School of Rock Club is currently seeking donations of drum sets, amps, PA System and microphones. Contact Mr. Crockett at for more information. Senior Andrew Ward is interested in starting a Skeet/Clay Shooting Club. Andrew has already set something up with the manager of the gun club down the street and his dad, Tim, is willing to help out, as are his BC buddies, with transportation for the team. The Skeet/Clay Shooting Club will begin formally begin 2nd semester. Development Officer Barb Evans, an avid sailor, has resurrected the BC sailing team just in time to finish the 2011 fall season and be ready for the 2012 winter/spring regattas. If you are interested in joining the team, please contact Coach, Barbara Evans at or or come by her office in the Business Office. Practices are held at Lake Mayer and there is a $100/student fee in order to practice and use their boats. The fee covers liability and boat usage/maintenance. Most regattas are local or within a 2-hour drive. Come join the fun! And, as if a School of Rock Club, Skeet/Clay Shooting Club, and Sailing Club weren t enough, our talented Fine Arts instructor Sandra Levin, is starting a Digital Photography Club in January. BC used to offer a photography class complete with dark room experience, but Sandra s new club will move the Cadets into the 21st Century and expose them to the technical side of digital photography. For more information contact Sandra Levin at If your son is interested in participating in any of our new additional extra-curricular activities, please contact the faculty or staff member in charge!

7 Meet the Faculty Stephen C. Carl I grew up in the great Pacific Northwest, state of Washington, in a small town bordering Oregon state, and right on the banks of the Columbia River. After graduation from Washougal High School in 1966, I attended Central Washington State College for one year. In October of 1967, I enlisted in the US Army and attended basic training at Fort Lewis, Washington. Upon completion of basic training, I was assigned to Fort Lee, Virginia where I completed my advanced individual training in the field of logistics. In April of 1968 was transferred to South Korea and assigned to the Headquarters, 2nd Supply and Transportation Battalion, 2nd Infantry Division. One year later, I left South Korea and was transferred to Augsburg, Germany and assigned to A Company 35th Supply and Service Battalion. In 1970, I met a young German lady and in 1971 we were married in Zollikofen, Switzerland. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary this past January. In June of 1972, I was transferred to Fort Lewis, Washington and assigned to the S-4, 80th Ordnance Battalion. It was there, that I came under the mentorship of a Chief Warrant Officer, who insisted I go back to college, finish my studies and apply for Warrant Officer. In June of 1974, I received orders and it was back to Germany, this time my station was Pirmasens, I was assigned to the United States Military Community Activity and became the Property Book NCO. In early 1976, I applied for an appointment as a Warrant Officer and after several interview boards and officer recommendations, I received my appointment in October I was immediately transferred to West Berlin and assigned the duties as Property Book Officer for the 2/9th Infantry Battalion. In June 1978, I received orders for Fort Hood, Texas. Upon my arrival, I was assigned to the Division Materiel Center 2nd Armor Division as a Property Book Team Chief. In June 1980, I received orders for Karlsruhe, Germany. Upon my arrival, I was assigned as the Brigade Supply Technician, Headquarters 160th Signal Brigade. In June 1985 I was transferred to Fort Stewart, Georgia and was assigned to the Division Materiel Center, 24th Infantry Division as a Property Book Team Chief. On April 30, 1988 I retired from the Army with 20 years, 6 months and 1 week of service. Military schools attended while on active duty include; 7th Army NCO Academy, NCR 500 Automated Property Accountability Course, D-Log Automated Property Book, Standard Property Book Automated System, and Warrant Officer Senior Course. On May 2, 1988 I began my career at Benedictine Military School. Since my employment, I have been the LET III Army Instructor in the JROTC program. Additional duties include JROTC Drill Team Coach and Logistics Officer. In March 1999, I had the honor of being inducted into the Benedictine Wall of Fame. Education continues throughout one s life, and I have completed on-line courses in the education field and several courses related to military duties performed at BC. During my tenure at BC, it has been a privilege to be an Army Instructor to so many great young men. I wish every cadet, past- present-and future the very best. God Bless all of you.

8 The Campaign for The 400 By: Greg Markiton Benedictine is THANKFUL for you, our supporters, during this time of Thanksgiving. Your gift to the Campaign for The 400 annual fund is a priceless investment in a young man s future. The Campaign for The 400 Annual Fund is the cornerstone of BC s giving programs that directly support our students and teachers. It helps fund financial aid, faculty salaries, technology, classroom equipment, student programs, and facility maintenance. Gifts of all sizes, from $1 to $100,000, have a positive impact on the daily life of our Benedictine cadets. More than 230 donors have already contributed to this school year s campaign! We have raised twice as much money as this time last year, but BC needs your help to keep the momentum going to reach our goal of $500,000. Thank you for your generosity, for keeping BC strong today, and for making its future that much brighter! A Controlled Burn By: Rigel Crockett On September 9, students in Rigel Crockett s chemistry class performed experiments on three different types of food to determine how much chemical energy (number of calories) was stored in them. Working in pairs, the cadets constructed calorimeters, devices that use water to capture the heat released by foods when they are burned. (Burning food gives off the same amount of energy as digesting food.) By measuring the temperature change of the water in their calorimeters, cadets were able to calculate how much energy was given off by each type of food. The results were perhaps not quite what you d think. Walnuts contain twice as many calories per gram as marshmallows and potato chips. And here s another way to look at the results: Bag of walnuts: $6.99 Bag of chips: $4.29 Bag of marshmallows: $1.39 Burning food in school while learning at the same time: Priceless

9 Harvest of Hope By: Brennan Lemieux 2011 Harvest of Hope Double Metric Century, a.k.a. Patrick s Ride A charity ride to benefit cancer victims. On the 15th of October, Mr. Lemieux, along with approximately 100 other cyclists set their sights on a day long bike ride from The Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute at Memorial University Medical Center to Augusta, GA. Leaving Savannah at dawn, they would push through 136 miles of rolling hills and brisk winds in the name of cancer victims, their families, and one very special man, Patrick Booton. Patrick has overcome cancer twice, bounced back from a stroke, and survived a potentially deadly infection to his cervical spine. Despite all of this, Patrick started the ride ten years ago to celebrate being cancer free for five years. The route was symbolic. Augusta was the site of his first cancer diagnosis, and Savannah the site of his second. What started as an insane ride with a few friends has since grown to a 100 person, organized ride, raising over $61,000 this year on the 10th anniversary. Over the history of the ride, over $270,000 has been raised for local pediatric and adult cancer patients. BC played a role in fundraising this year, raising money through a dress down day. All monies go to support the Harvest of Hope retreat held at Ebenezer, allowing cancer victims and their families to enjoy a retreat of stress-free relaxation. Patrick s son, Ian, is a sophomore at BC. New Item at The Cadet Shop By: Brandi Edwards Greetings from The Cadet Shop, We have been off to a great start so far this year! Thank you to all who have volunteered their time to assist us and a thank you to all who have purchased from us as well. We have a new item this month. The BC pin which sells for $5.00. This is also available for mail order. The BC Pin is a great way to show your allegiance on any item of clothing. Also we are looking for volunteers for the upcoming sport seasons. I need some assistance with specific sports coordinating Cadet Shop attendance at major competitions and creating the sport T-shirt. If you would like to volunteer for your son s sport please let me know. I would greatly appreciate the help. Thank you, Brandi Edwards

10 Campus Ministry By: Fr. Ronald Gatman, O.S.B. - Campus Minister STUDYING Benedictine monasticism is interested in the development of the whole person, body, mind, and spirit. It seeks by various means of discipline to create a person who is balanced in all of these dimensions of his life. Saint Benedict taught that we are to exhibit moderation in all things, that we are to avoid excesses or extremes. When we go off on tangents we lose our balance and are out of kilter. In such a case we may neglect a specific dimension of our person. If all we do is exercise our bodies, but do not pray or study, we may have a marvelous physique, but we may be all brawn and no brain. If we spend our days in study alone, with little bodily movement, we may become obese or lose muscle tone and physical strength which will hinder us in the performance of certain necessary physical tasks. The neglect of prayer is equally detrimental to our growth as persons for we are spiritual beings who are destined ultimately to be one with God. Lack of prayer, means lack of communication with God, and a loss of the primary focus of life, the Divine. When we lose that focal point we simply drift along in life, not really knowing what it is all about and what our real purpose is in life which is to love God with our whole being. It is important to maintain our physical heath for this affects our ability to think well and to have the vigor to endure the struggle to maintain our orientation toward the good. Our mental health affects our physical well-being, since our bodies do what our minds tell them to do. And it likewise has an influence on our spiritual well-being. Being spiritually ill is detrimental to our physical and mental health. This just goes to show us that life is an organic whole. Everything is some related and affects everything else to varying degrees. And this truth is not restricted to this world in which we live. It also extends to the heavnly kingdom. The Jewish Kabbalah makes this point when it says, "God created the world (in which we live) in the image of the world above; all which is found above has its analogy below... and everything constitutes a unity." It further notes that what happens in heaven affects what goes on here on earth and vice versa. Taking all of this into consideration I would now like to focus on the intellectual dimension of our lives, the use of our minds. Here at Benedictine as it should be in all educational institutions, studying and learning are at the core of our daily routines. That is what our students are about, that is their primary work here at BC. The fact that we are capable of studying and learning is the result of the gift of intellect that God has given to us. We are made in the image and likeness of God who is intelligent, and who created the world in wisdom. Therefore, we can think and reason and discover truths as regards the world in which we live, God's world. Not only do we have the ability to think and reason and understand, but there is likewise something to understand for God made the world intelligible to the human mind. Studying and learning are responses to the gift of God who gave us the ability to do so. In its highest form studying is a means by which we can come to know God. And this is as has been said earlier our ultimate goal in life. When we apply ourselves to certain disciplines such as English, or History, or Science, or Mathematics, or Religion, or the learning of a Sport or how to sing or play and instrument, or create works of art, WE SHOULD GIVE IT OUR ALL. We should get into it and learn all that we can in these areas. There are truths to be discovered in all of these, and the discovery of truth is the primary function of our intellect. The truths that we discover in all areas of life are the truths that God put there from the beginning. The more we discover these truths, the more do we discover His ways, and in so doing do we discover Him. Sometimes people consider faith and reason to be at variance with one another, believing that the use of reason somehow is in opposition to faith, rather than being collaborative with it. They may feel that the truths discovered through the use or reason are distinct from those supposedly known through faith. Nothing could be further from the truth for God is One and is the Truth. When we discover the truth we discover God. The Belmont Abbey monks have a little saying which illustrates how rational pursuits of the truth and the truths revealed by faith are on the same track. It says, "Our students seek truth, our monks seek God, no wonder we both arrive at the same place." Studying and learning are a response to God's gift of intellect. When we do these things to the best of our ability we give glory and honor and praise to Him. And since it helps us to understand God's world it helps us to understand His ways. It is a means of communicating with God. Looking at it in this way we can see studying as a form of prayer, the purpose of which is to help us commune with God. The Baltimore Catechism tells us that God "made us to KNOW, love and serve Him in this world, and be happy with Him in the next." May this become a reality in our lives.

12 JROTC = Committment to the Community The JROTC Program here at Benedictine is one of great success and renowned for earning the Honor Unit of Distinction ranking 26 years in a row. One of the reasons the program is so successful are the Service Learning Education projects completed by the senior officers. The concept of service learning is that through the acts of bettering their school community, the Cadet Officers will experience firsthand the values and benefits of leading by example. This program provides an opportunity for Cadets to improve their leadership ability, a skill that will be vital in their future lives and careers. Such an opportunity is unmatched by other schools. The experience give to our Cadets through service learning is a strong example of why Benedictine is truly a unique educational experience. This year, the Senior JROTC Cadets are taking on several projects that look to be quite beneficial to the school. The Cadets are involved in the following service learning projects: running the Benedictine annual Canned Food Drive, cleaning up the school s cross country trail, cleaning the front of the academic building, cleaning the school parking lot, repainting the parking lines in the school lot, and cleaning the school s trophies and trophy cases in the academic and athletic building. This year s projects are wonderful endeavors and are sure to be beneficial to not only the Senior class, but to the school community as a whole. Gray s Reef: A National Treasure By: Br. Tim Brown, O.S.B. Gray s reef, located about 18 nautical miles off Sapelo Island, Georgia, has been a national marine sanctuary since It is one of the largest near shore live-bottom reefs in the southeastern United States and is part of the United States National Marine Sanctuary system which consists of 14 sanctuaries. The reef encompasses 22 sq. miles and its sandstone ledges, submerged feet below the surface, supports a variety of marine plant and animal life. Mr. Greg McFall is the Deputy Superintendent and Research Coordinator of the sanctuary at the NOAA office on Skidaway Island. He will give a presentation entitled Gray s Reef: A National Treasure on Wednesday, November 9 at 7:00 P.M. in the academic building on the BC campus. The presentation is part of the Fr. Albert Bickerstaff Memorial Lecture Series, established two years ago.
