Declan already first in his class

Declan McIntyre is not only the first applicant for the Stepinac Class of 2022, he also has a family alumni connection to the White Plains high school stretching back to his great uncle, Frank McIntyre, who graduated in 1951. Three other uncles followed: Timothy O’Toole (Class of ’82), who is associate head basketball coach of the University of California-Berkeley; the late Brendan O’Toole (Class of ’74) and Robert O’Toole (Class of ’78). Declan is pictured with school president, Rev. Thomas Collins. 2022 will mark Stepinac’s 70th anniversary. More at
