She wrote a book entitled A Target On My Back: A Prosecutor’s Terrifying Tale of Life on a Hit List
. If you remember the Kaufman County murders in 2013, Erleigh N. Wiley took over the role of district attorney after the death of her predecessors. She is also the parent of Bishop Lynch graduate Brad Sargent.
Monica Shaw - AuthorOctober 30, 20184:00 pm
Her book is entitled The Rainwater Secret
. Much like Justin Wren’s work in Africa, Shaw tells the tale of her great aunt’s missionary work with lepers in Nigeria. Monica Shaw is also the aunt of the Hartmann children who have come through Bishop Lynch (Bobby, Anna, Charlie, Jimmy, et al.)
Bert Romberg - Holocaust SurvivorNovember 13, 20184:00 pm
Mr. Romberg was born in Astheim, Germany in 1930 just before the Nazi regime took power. When Mr. Romberg was eight years old, his mother realized the imminent danger to her family and sent him and his sister to the Kindertransport – a rescue mission that allowed thousands of Jewish children to live with private English citizens. Mr. Romberg will share his story of war, survival and hope with Bishop Lynch students, faculty, staff, and the community.
We anticipate a large, possibly standing-room-only crowd at this presentation. Please plan to arrive early.
Dr. Lesa Roe - Univeristy ChancellorApril 16, 20184:00 pm
Dr. Roe is the Chancellor of the entire University of North Texas education system. What makes her story intriguing is that before becoming the Chancellor 18 months ago, she rose to “second in command as acting deputy administrator” of NASA, where she spent 33 years.
