The class included 186 graduates and among them are lawyers and doctors, as well as an Army general, a front office executive of the Milwaukee Bucks — and a priest.
Fr. Richard Rinn entered the Viatorian Novitiate a little more than one month after graduating from Saint Viator. He would return to his alma mater, first as a teacher in 1971 and again in 1998 as its president.
Next year, Fr. Rinn will celebrate 50 years of religious life. He has advanced the Viatorian charism wherever he has gone.
His years in the community have taken him from Saint Viator High School to Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, where he served as a teacher and counselor before joining the administration as assistant principal, principal and president.
His duties as pastor prevent him from attending his reunion, but his love of his alma mater stays with him. He is, a lion for life.
