The Fitzpatrick Library is named in honor of Millie and Joe Fitzpatrick, faithful supporters of St. John’s and its Lasallian mission.
The Fitzpatricks were intent on providing their children with educational opportunities that would support and further develop their talents and abilities. They chose to enroll their sons at St. John’s and insisted their children be involved in academic and extracurricular activities, both athletic and non-athletic. Their efforts resulted in five SJC graduates: Jim ’65, Michael ’66, Bob ’68, Terry ’70 and Tom ’78.
In addition to their exemplary roles as parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fitzpatrick also demonstrated leadership and commitment to St. John’s values through their service to the school community. Millie served as secretary to the administration for 26 years, and Joe was president of the Men of St. John’s.
It is the hope of the Fitzpatrick family that the library will continue to serve the students as an invaluable tool in their preparation for the future.
