Press release from Christian Brothers Academy

Christian Brothers Academy and the CBA Alumni Association have announced this year’s individual and team inductees to the CBA Hall of Fame. The five standout individual honorees and two school sports teams will be formally recognized at this year’s Hall of Fame Gala on Saturday, November 19, to be hosted at Doolan’s Shore Club in Spring Lake.

This year’s inductees include standouts from the fields of business, philanthropy, education and professional sports — including Nicholas J. LaBrocca (Class of 2003), a major league soccer player currently with the Chicago Fire as a midfielder. The school will collectively honor the members of the 1968 Wrestling team (the first CBA wrestling squad to win a district championship), and the 1973 Basketball team, one of the most successful in Colts history with an undefeated season (28-0) and a NJSIAA Parochial “A” State title.

Also being formally inducted at the November 19 event are:

Louis V. Aversano ’84, chief executive officer, Ogilvy & Mather New York, the distinguished international advertising, marketing and public relations agency.

Sean Duffy ’70, senior vice president, investments, with Stifel Nicolaus, current member of the CBA Board of Trustees and longtime benefactor of the Academy, and a former radio personality.

Lawrence R. Goldman ’84, regional education director for Asia and the Pacific at FHI 360, an international not-for-profit organization that works to improve educational opportunities for children in some of the poorest communities in Asia, Africa, and Central America.

Timothy Sewnig, a 25-year member of CBA’s theology department, former Peace Corps volunteer, leader of the Academy’s Campus Ministry, and longtime coach.
