Bird, Jack

This summer, Jack Bird '14 traveled to Mexico, where he created an agroforestry program guide similar to one he produced the summer before in Zambia. He then went to Korea, where he presented a paper on the guide that he produced in Zambia.

Bird double majored in environmental science and political science at Santa Clara. He was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa national honors society, a participant in the honors program, and a Pi Sigma Alpha, a political-science honor society. He had the honor of being the recipient of the Nobili Award for outstanding male student.

Bird’s goal, according to his resume, is to “work with a socially and environmentally responsible organization aimed at promoting clean-energy technologies and sustainable business practices.”

In 2012, Coach Mengis was inducted into the Santa Clara University Lacrosse Hall of Fame, where he played lacrosse for four years in the early '90s, earning Team Captain and Coaches Award honors. He is a two-time WCLL All Star and helped lead Santa Clara to the WCLL Final Four three years in a row. Before tearing his ACL partway through his senior year, Mengis was ranked in the NCAA National top 10 in points as an attack man.

Mengis has stayed active playing and coaching lacrosse. His philosophy stresses a positive attitude, mastering the fundamentals, and teamwork. He has been the head coach of the Los Altos High School Varsity since 2009, and for the last three years he led the team to a 32-4 division record, two league championships, and 3 straight playoff appearances.

He has played a number of seasons with the Palo Alto Club Lacrosse team and has coached with the Fremont Spartans, Diablo Scorpions, and Palo Alto Tomahawks club teams.

Said Coach Mengis, "I am excited to return to my alma mater and help lead SCU back to a winning tradition in the MCLA."
