"Carmel Catholic holds a fond place in my heart. I had a wonderful experience during my high school years at Carmel. It is a part of who I am today. We give to Carmel because we believe in Carmel’s Mission. We hope many other young people should have an opportunity to be a part of Carmel. We feel so strongly about Carmel that we have made it a part of our estate plan, in addition to our annual contributions." - Paul Zudyk ‘83
