Former Jesuit President Fr. Gregory R. Bonfiglio, S.J., gave
Riley Shanahan ’10 some advice early on in his Jesuit career:
“You aren’t getting the most out of your high school experience
if you show up at 8 AM and leave at 3 PM.”
For a guy like Shanahan, who didn’t know if he would be attending
Jesuit High School until a week before classes started, those
words struck a chord.
Shanahan went on to play sports, become Head Cheerleader, and,
perhaps most impactful for his future, he got involved with
theater and choir.
