Howe Hosts Second Annual Diocese of North Indiana Acolyte Festival

Two years ago, Cadet Zachary Yanekeff and Cadet Brandon Leisure accompanied Chaplain Fleming to the National Acolyte Festival held at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. Our group was so impressed with the event that we wanted to share it with the Diocese. We continued the tradition as Howe Military Academy played host to the 2nd Annual Diocese of North Indiana Acolyte Festival on March 8th, 2014.

Our guests began arriving at 10:30 a.m. and the day began with a healthy competition of “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grade Acolyte?” as the adults challenged the youth in their skill and knowledge of acolyting. The youth won! The Howe Acolyte team, made up of Head Sacristan Ryan Schubert, Cadets Brandon Leisure, Zachary Yanakeff, and Colin Majoras participated in the event.

We all enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Mess Hall, thanks to direction of Carol Whitsel and her staff.

In the afternoon we gathered at All Saints Chapel for our celebration, the dedication and blessing of the Acolytes, with The Rt. Rev. Ed Little, Bishop of Diocese of Northern Indiana presiding. Cadets Evan Schubert, Mitchel Hickling, and Colin Majoras performed a great readers play called “It Depends on who’s hands its in", and Chaplain Fleming closed with a homily.

We had 40 guests representing five parishes from around the diocese in attendance. The procession of banners, streamers, and crosses was spectacular. Our guests were thrilled with the drum corp and we had a guest organist, Steve Weitstock from St James Cathedral, South Bend.

Thank you everyone for your assistance in making this a great day!

Howe CyberPatriot Team Earns 1st Place in Midwest Regional

The Howe Military Academy CyberPatriot team, consisting of Ben Roberts, Nick Piane, Paul Sienkiewicz, and Jered Slabaugh, competed in the CyberPatriot VI Regional Recognition Round on Saturday, March 8th after receiving 1st place in the State Recognition Round back in February. The team is coached by Michael Reed, Howe's Chief Technology Officer.  CyberPatriot is the premier national high school cyber defense competition created by the Air Force Association to inspire high school students toward careers in cyber security or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future.  The Midwest regional consisted of 1st place teams in the all-service division from 7 different states (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Wisconsin).

Team members were given the task of securing 3 different virtual images (Microsoft Server 2003, Microsoft Server 2008, and Ubuntu 12.04) in a 6-hour time period during the regional round.  Howe Military scored 80 out of 100 on Windows Server 2008, 77 out of 100 on Windows Server 2003, and 57 out of 100 on Ubuntu 12.04 to finish with a scored of 214 out of 300 in the round.  Their score was good enough to earn Howe a 1st place finish in the all-service division of the regional round and a great end to a terrific season.  The team will lose two seniors next year in Piane and Roberts, but coach Reed has high hopes for next season with Sienkiewicz and Slabaugh returning as team captains.  The team fell just a few points short back in January's semifinal round from qualifying for Nationals in Washington, D.C.; a goal the team looks to achieve in the upcoming CyberPatriot VII season.
