Moreau Hopes and Dreams Dinner and Auction

Submitted By Monica Lander

Empowering the next generation to pursue opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) is a passion of Guillermo Diaz Jr., keynote speaker at Moreau Catholic High SchoolÕs ninth annual Funding Hopes and Dreams dinner and auction. A benefit for the schoolÕs Trust for Student Support, funds raised play a vital and important role by providing tuition assistance for about 40 percent of the student body.

Diaz, the senior vice president and chief information officer for CiscoÕs Global Information Technology organization and services headquartered in the heart of Silicon Valley, will be joined by Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Oakland schools Kathleen Radecke, also a Moreau Catholic graduate and master of ceremonies for the event.

Moreau Catholic graduate Carlos Briones and current senior Mercedas Reichel will also speak at the event.

The evening gala, ÒOpening the Door to OpportunityÓ, will be held Thursday, Nov. 16 at the Fremont Marriott Silicon Valley. A week-long stay at an amazing estate in Alsace, France is a highlight of the live auction. This estate is ideally located at the corner of France, Germany and Switzerland with easy access to wine regions, golf courses, and breathtaking sightseeing.

Moreau Catholic wants every qualified and deserving student to reap the benefits of a college preparatory education and is committed to continuing to offer an exceptional education in a Catholic environment despite the increase in demand for tuition assistance.

Diaz has been recognized as one of top 100 CIO/CTO leaders in STEM. He began his IT career in the US Navy and a military scholarship enabled him to attend Regis University where he earned a degree in business administration.

His son, Jorge Calixto graduated from Moreau Catholic in 2006. Radecke, an East Bay native, is the former superintendent of the Diocese of MontereyÕs Catholic Schools.
