Construction is complete on Carmel Catholic High School's new main entrance, the Kathy A. Nemmers Welcome Center. The Welcome Center is named in memory of Kathy A. Nemmers (1955-2016).
Kathy was a Carmel Catholic parent, volunteer, and Board member. Kathy’s four sons: Sam '01, Mike '03, Max '06, and Tom '10, were Carmel graduates, as was her husband, Joe. Kathy volunteered at Carmel for many years, including one term as a member of the Carmel Catholic Board of Directors. She loved Carmel Catholic for the great institution it is, and for what the school has done for her family.
Her husband, Joseph M. Nemmers Jr. ‘73, former Chairman of Carmel Catholic’s Board of Directors, donated $1 million on behalf of his family, the largest gift that Carmel Catholic has ever received. Nemmers is a long-time financial supporter of Carmel Catholic High School, as well as Catholic education initiatives in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Arizona.
“Kathy was a positive and optimistic person, and always a warm and gracious host,” said Nemmers. “Naming the new Welcome Center for her is a loving tribute to the welcoming person she was.”
The Welcome Center includes a new main entrance to the school, a modern lobby and greeting area, and a new 2,268 sq.ft. conference center that was previously a deconsecrated chapel. The Welcome Center will provide new technology and dramatic design to provide a comfortable space for visitors and the Carmel community, all in the spirit of Carmel Catholic.
