2021 RAIDER LEGEND
GALE CONDIT, FSC
Biography by Larry Holder '98, columnist for The Athletic
You know you’re special to Archbishop Rummel when you never actually attended the school, but you’ve received two honorary diplomas in two different centuries. Those honors are only two of the many reasons why Brother Gale Condit has earned the 2021 Raider Legend award.
Brother Gale helped mold Rummel from the ground up being assigned to teach at the school four times starting as early as 1965. He returned for stints in 1972-1976, 1989-1999 and 2012-2016. He taught senior religion and freshman government.
His ARHS efforts extended outside the daily classroom as well. He served as the initiator and moderator of the International Relations Club at Rummel for several years. Brother Gale then developed the Rummel Renaissance program -- where local businesses provided awards for students excelling in academics. The successful program also funded the annual national college tour.
Brother Gale was born in Eau Claire, Wisc., but grew up in west Texas where graduated from Cathedral High School (a Christian Brothers’ school in El Paso).
Following his final span at Rummel, Brother Gale became the development director for the San Francisco New Orleans District Lasallian Christian Brothers Foundation, a position he’s still in today. He also co-directs the St. La Salle Auxiliary.
