When one thinks about Coach Robert "Doogie" Williams, they might think of him as one of Jesuit’s track coaches, football coaches, substitute teachers, or even as a former NFL player. Although Coach Williams is all of these things, he is also so much more. Early Years Robert Cole Williams was born on October 2, 1962 in Galveston, Texas. He attended Alamo...
Many young men have passed through the halls of Jesuit and gone on to lead accomplished and distinguished lives. As students, we cannot fully appreciate what being “a man for others” means, nor how the many experiences that we share at Jesuit will influence us until later in life. I recently met one Ranger alum that captured my interest: a...
The entire packed auditorium at Fair Park focuses on Charles as he walks up to the stage, looking toward the principal of Jesuit High School, Fr. Michael Kammer, S.J.  Shaking his hand, Charles gazes out into the crowd of students watching him. This is not just any other night; it is the class of 1958’s graduation, a night filled...

Walsh, Vice Chief of Naval Operations,  appeared before reporters at the Pentagon to explain the results of a month-long review of the detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. Situated on a bay that Christopher Columbus described as “broad…with dark water, of unsuspected dimensions,” the Guantanamo Bay Naval Station has served...
“I think Jesus would be at home in the school if he would return. I used to hear a lot of things about building community and I still think that's a priority.” Returning from his sojourn at Brophy College Preparatory School, an all-boys Jesuit high school in Phoenix, Arizona, Father Phil Postell S.J. returned to Jesuit Dallas as Chaplain at the...
The Mass of the Holy Spirit inaugurates each school year, and it is a deep-rooted Jesuit tradition going back hundreds of years. It marks the beginning of a 2016-2017 that will bring both exciting changes and familiar patterns for the entire Jesuit community, a community that has recently gained a few new members. Jesuit Dallas' tradition is to welcome its new teachers at the...
