Present at all school activities his photographs line the corridors of the school. He is portrayed bumping fists with Brother G. T. "Ted" Bassett, CFC, a former teacher of technology and currently the primary greeter of students each morning, the mower of lawns and consultant for the yearbook staff.

Brother Cass comments: "Recently one of our grade 11 students, Charlotte Cho, painted a mural on one of our library walls, about six feet by nine feet. It is her artistic expression of "The Knight's Compass", an expression of what a well-rounded Edmund Rice Christian Brothers Education should be. She has a fine sense of humor, doesn't she?"
