    Michael S. Malone ’75, MBA ’77 , 15 Jun 2017

    A Field of Dreams is what George Chiala ’64 saw when he looked across an unprepossessing 40-acre plot covered with row upon row of jalapeño pepper plants. Commuters racing by on 101 near Morgan Hill likely didn’t see the future he imagined there: a bell tower and ranks of classroom buildings in Mission Revival style. The school’s name: Saint John XXIII College Preparatory High School.
