Bishop Stang High School Announces the Inauguration of the Hall of Honors


Bishop Stang High School is pleased to announce the inauguration of the Hall of Honors! The Hall of Honors recognizes alumni, faculty, and friends who built an enduring legacy for the school through excellence in their careers, dedication to their communities, and service to Bishop Stang. The first induction to the Hall of Honors will take place on October 23, 2016.

The following are the 2016 inductees:

The Late Dr. Arthur Buckley – Dr. Buckley served as the General Chairman of the Campaign Committee, which founded Bishop Stang High School in 1959. The commitment and vision of Dr. Buckley inspired donors to make gifts based on the idea that building Bishop Stang would benefit the entire community. This idea and the funds raised are quite literally the foundation of our school.

Patrick and Lilian Carney & Family – Patrick Carney (Bishop Stang Class of 1966), emerged as a leader at Bishop Stang when he was still a young student by serving as President of the Student Council. Patrick and Lilian’s five children attended Bishop Stang over a 14 year period, from 1987 through 2001. The Carney Family’s unyielding commitment to Catholic Education has greatly impacted the growth and continued success of Bishop Stang High School for many years.

Kathy Crosson – Ms. Crosson has inspired generations of Bishop Stang students in the science lab for 38 years as Science Department Chair and teacher. As President/Founder of Missions for Humanity, she has dedicated her time to those in the world’s neediest communities. Her Missions for Humanity has provided opportunities for colleagues, students, alumni, parents, and local community members to take action and make the world a better place.

Theresa Dougall – Ms. Dougall’s (Bishop Stang Class of 1964) journey began as a student, and a few years after graduation, she returned to Bishop Stang and dedicated 44 years of distinguished service as a Teacher, Coach, Department Head, Principal and President. Her impact on generations of Spartans is immeasurable.

John C. O’Brien – John O’Brien started teaching and coaching at Bishop Stang in 1961 and served as Bishop Stang’s first Varsity Basketball Coach. Through his teaching, coaching, encouraging, guiding and caring for students, athletes and colleagues, until his death 24 years later, he sparked a positive energy at Bishop Stang. The tales of his spirit and love for the Bishop Stang family are legendary.

Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur – The mission of Bishop Stang High School is rooted in the charism of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. The Sisters were the foundational educators of the school. Their contribution of “making known God’s goodness” in all we do at Bishop Stang High School has certainly deemed them worthy of this honor.
