ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

Since its inception (1951) and through 1989, the Archbishop Carroll High School community was blessed to be administered and operated by the Order of St. Augustine (commonly referred to as Augustinians). In fact 11 Augustinian priests and two brothers were on the school’s first faculty and inaugurated a special partnership that endures today through the Augustinian Scholarship Fund.

 

´╗┐The faces and names changed over their nearly four decades of service to Carroll, but many of us remember at least an Augustinian or two who impacted or influenced our formative years on Harewood Road.

 

In recognition of the coming (this Friday, August 28) Feast Day of St. Augustine, please consider remembering the Augustinian influence at Carroll with a gift to the school’s Augustinian Scholarship Fund. The scholarship provides merit-based aid and helps Carroll attract top elementary school students and their families to its campus each year.

 

We invite all Carroll alumni to join us for Mass (virtually) this Friday, August 28, 2020 at 9:15 AM to celebrate the Feast Day of St. Augustine and the opening of the 2020-2021 school year. Archbishop Wilton Gregory will be the celebrant.

John R. Thompson, Jr. `60

With sadness, the Archbishop Carroll High School community shares news of the passing of John R. Thompson, Jr. `60 on August 31, 2020.
 
Thompson was a pivotal player in Carroll’s legendary 55-game win streak from 1958-1960, helping the Lions to 24 consecutive victories to close the 1958-59 season (33-2) and a perfect 31-0 record in the 1959-60 campaign. Those teams won back-to-back DC City Titles. He was recognized as a high school All-America and matriculated to Providence College where he led the Friars to the 1963 NIT Championship. Thompson was drafted by the Boston Celtics and played on two World Championship teams.
 
He gained national acclaim as a coach at Georgetown University, winning nearly 600 games (596-239) over his 27-year tenure. Thompson was the first African-American coach to win the NCAA basketball championship (1984), served as U.S. Olympic Head Coach in 1988 and he was enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1999.
 
As The Washington Post reported, “His most profound contribution to the game was his grasp of its power to lift disadvantaged youngsters to a better life. He used college basketball – and his stature in the sport – as a platform from which to demand greater opportunities for Black athletes to gain the college education they might otherwise have been denied.” In total, 75 of his 77 players who remained at Georgetown all four years earned degrees and 26 of his players were drafted in the NBA.
 
Funeral arrangements are pending.

Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual Light shine upon him.  May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen.
