A Letter from the Rector Rev. Joseph P. Capella
Dear Friends of CCHS,
CAMDEN CATHOLIC PRAYER Composed by the Class of 2002 Father, we ask for Your blessings as we gather as the Camden Catholic Family. Help us to use the gifts and talents you have so generously bestowed upon us as we carry out Your will. May the virtues of Honor, Faith and Loyalty shine brightly in everything we say and do for the glory of Your name. Amen.
I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you…again. I first had the pleasure of doing so two years ago when I was appointed Director of Catholic Identity. My time here in this capacity continues to be a blessing to me, and one of the most rewarding ministries I have had in my priesthood. Mid-summer Bishop Sullivan shifted my ministry here at CCHS just a bit when he appointed me as Rector of CCHS. As Rector I will still be responsible for my former duties, but now will have an added role as the school’s main administrator. The term Rector is used to denote such a position for various types of ministries within the Church. I’m aware that this change is a first in our history, but as I have come to learn, CCHS has always been flexible and responsive to current needs throughout its history. I look forward to assisting President Whipkey as she continues in her current position to help CCHS carry on our tremendous legacy of forming young people in our Catholic Christian tradition of helping parents to develop the body, mind and souls of our students. Along with Principal Crisci, the three of us hope to be a dynamic team of school governance so that each and every member of our various CCHS communities will feel empowered to be a part of this new and exciting next phase of our history. Once again, thank you for the love and support of such a wonderful community that has continued to serve and set new horizons for nearly 130 years. Please be assured of my most sincere thoughts and prayers for you, your family and loved ones as we prepare to enter into this new academic year filled with God’s guidance and promise. Go Irish! Respectfully,
Rev. Joseph P. Capella Rector, Camden Catholic High School
A Letter from the Board Chair: Jack Pund ’74
Dear members of the Camden Catholic family, Camden Catholic’s priority traditions of faith-based education and facilitating students’ readiness for college and life thereafter are intact and flourishing. Our students continue to excel in the classrooms, on the fields, and in the arts. Our newest alumni, the class of 2018, set a new standard of achievement, especially in terms of scholarships earned, with over $26 million, and acceptances by highly selective academies, colleges, and universities. Witnessing our students’ successes gives us the daily energy and passion to seek continuous improvement for our students and all future members of the Camden Catholic family. Our faculty and administration remain the engine that drives our students’ success stories. They are highly skilled educators, role models, and leaders. Successful Camden Catholic students result in successful Camden Catholic alumni. You are the glue that holds our family together. It is because of your generous donations to our annual fund (over 1,000 of you proved your support this year), with contributions to tuition aid, scholarships, arts and athletic programs, that CCHS is able to continue to evolve, inspire and educate our world’s future leaders. I encourage all of our alumni to continue to support Camden Catholic. Whether that be sharing your career with students at a “lunch & learn,” attending the annual spring musical, or making an effort to donate annually, no matter the amount. What matters is your investment in the place that has provided you with a foundation that continues to benefit your personal, spiritual and professional growth. Help us to make that same strong foundation possible for the students of today.
ALMA MATER! Elizabeth Dreher and Sister Mary Christine Tobin Hail, Alma Mater! To thee we raise Our grateful hearts in this our song of praise; Hither we came, thy truth and wisdom to attain May thy blest guiding pow’r forever with us reign. Hail, Alma Mater! Mem’ry recalls Our golden happy years within thy walls; Friendships of youthful days shall never grow cold; Long shall we cherish true glad days of old. Hail, Alma Mater! Deep in our hearts We treasure all our memories of thee Throughout the years to come may this our stanchion be: Honor and Loyalty with Faith inspired by thee.
My sincerest thanks to our students, faculty and administration, parents, family, alumni, trustees, and the support from Bishop Dennis J. Sullivan and the Diocese of Camden for another great year in terms of our priority traditions. If we strive continuously for excellence, working together, there is nothing you and the entire Camden Catholic family cannot accomplish. Support one another. All the best to the Camden Catholic family…and, Go IRISH!
Jack Pund ’74 Chairman, Board of Trustees

On Saturday, April 21, more than 320 guests gathered to honor the twelfth class of inductees into the Camden Catholic Hall of Fame. “The Hall of Fame is a fitting acknowledgement of what makes Camden Catholic one of the region’s finest educational institutions,” said Hall of Fame committee chairperson Jack Wixted ’72. “The accomplishments of the 2018 inductees help to show our current students the incredible footsteps in which they follow. This year’s inductees’ contributions in business, medicine, philanthropy, education and culinary arts is a testament to the school’s mission of educating young men and women to become lifelong learners and leaders in a Global society in the Catholic tradition.”

Class of 2018 Exceptional Graduates. “Finding Their Purpose.” Academics: Cecelia Ensell “I wholeheartedly believe my time at Camden Catholic has prepared me for college,” says Cecelia Ensell. The valedictorian from Pennsauken, who came to CCHS from St. Peter School in Merchantville, is anticipating college with great hope and expectations. “In five years I picture myself attending graduate school, while hopefully pursuing internships and research opportunities in the field of behavioral psychology.” A quiet and confident leader, Cecelia has been a part of various CCHS activities during her four years. Among them, volleyball, choir, Student Government and Cathedral Scholars have kept her busy and provided her opportunities to pursue new interests. “My time here has provided me with the opportunities to take challenging yet rewarding honors and advanced placement courses in various subject areas. This experience has allowed me to sample different fields of study and help discern what path I want to take in my future academic endeavors.”
Community: Jada Cordero “If I had to describe the CCHS community in three words, they would be growth, friendship and laughter,” says senior Jada Cordero. This graduate, now headed to William Patterson University, has also been inspired by her membership in L.U.C.Y. (Lifting Up Camden’s Youth) and ID2C (I Dare to Care), and has the distinction of being a Domenica Scholar. Jada attended Sacred Heart School in Camden prior to coming to CCHS freshman year. Here, she wasted no time growing her knowledge, her friendships, and her interests. She participated in lacrosse, cheerleading, REBEL (Reaching Everyone by Exposing Lies), the Debate Team and the Creative Writing Club. “I think I’ll miss the people most,” she says about going on to college. “I have so many bonds with the students and the teachers, my greatest learning experience has been all that I’ve been through these four years, and the person I’ve become because of it.” One of her greatest mentors at CCHS has been biology teacher Dianne Heck. “Ms. Heck has been my biggest inspiration. She saw something in me that I did not see in myself, and taught me that I have the potential to do anything I want.” Keep your eye out for Jada as she gets ready to excel at the next level. “In five years I hope to be working on a television show. I want to learn all aspects about that business and be able to use the communication world to help others,” she says.

Tradition: Dean Cahill There is little doubt that the many Cahill and Haney CCHS graduates are beyond proud of their son, brother, and nephew Dean. As one of the most recognizable faces of the class of 2018, Dean Cahill has absolutely made his four years of high school count. He earned a merit scholarship as an eighth grader from Resurrection Catholic School, and immediately starting making a name for himself as a Camden Catholic student, eventually becoming school president his senior year. His numerous activities include football and lacrosse, Link Crew and Green and White, Stage Crew and Boys State. A natural born leader, Dean has his sights set on one of the world’s most respected leadership roles, to become an officer in the United States Army. He is already on his way to that pursuit, earning a full tuition ROTC scholarship to Penn State University, where he will begin in the fall. “Mrs. Fireman [physics teacher] has shown me her passion for physics, and helped encourage me to pursue my own passion, which I can turn into a career eventually. In five years I hope to be a commissioned Army officer, graduated from Penn State and on my way to completing flight school,” says Dean.

Arts: Theresa Gardner If you have been to a CCHS spring musical, concert or fall play you will recognize the multi-talented Theresa Gardner. She played the sassy and sophisticated Reno Sweeney in Anything Goes this year, had the audience in stitches as a snarky stepsister in 2017’s Cinderella, and has performed in many additional roles on the Grandi Auditorium stage. “The musical has taught me the most about working collaboratively with so many people who possess such diverse gifts,” Theresa says. “It’s also taught me how God has given each of us gifts so that we can share them and offer them right back up to God.” Theresa will continue to offer her musical talents to audiences as she pursues her passion of music at The Catholic University of America next year. “I hope to eventually be teaching music in a school setting and privately,” she says. “I also hope to have a music ministry job, and continue to perform in theaters.”
ATTENDING: Catholic University (major: music) SCHOLARSHIPS RECEIVED: The Catholic University of America Scholarship, Knights of Columbus Scholarship, Garden State Chorale Scholarship SENIOR RESEARCH TOPIC: The effect of classical music on the development of the brain
Opportunity: Anthony Nguyen “The different perspectives of my classmates have taught me the most,” says Anthony when asked about high school. Coming from St. Joseph Pro-Cathedral school in Camden, Anthony Nguyen was a Domenica Scholar and a Merit Scholar at CCHS. These opportunities were not easily earned, and he certainly made the most of them. Beyond his hard-work in the classroom, Anthony spent his high school years listening and participating in discussions that have helped shape him as both a student and a friend. “CCHS provides many opportunities for introspection, such as retreats, prayer services and classroom discussion. I have gained so much from this way of learning,” he says. Earning almost a full tuition grant to attend an Ivy League institution is another opportunity that Anthony will take on with great eagerness. “I hope to eventually pursue a PhD in physics,” he says. “I’m deciding between becoming a physics professor, working in aerospace or robotics.”
ATTENDING: Cornell University (major: engineering physics) ACCEPTED: LaSalle University, Loyola Marymount University, Saint Louis University, Ursinus College SCHOLARSHIPS RECEIVED: Loyola Marymount-Presidential Scholarship, Saint Louis-Presidential Scholarship SENIOR RESEARCH TOPIC: Effect of sleep on the brain
International: Tony Li International student Tony Li not only overcame the many challenges that come along with attending high school in a foreign country, but he excelled in a myriad of ways. His high school activities included performing in the spring musical, playing soccer, singing in the choir, and competing at the Temple University Owlympiad math competition. His busy schedule allowed Tony to get to know his classmates on a deeper level. “CCHS has taught me to love my ‘brothers and sisters,’” he says. “I received love I never had, not even in China. We learn from each other and share our happiness or sadness. I love everything here, besides graduation.” Always remember, Tony, that even though you graduated, you will forever remain a member of the Camden Catholic family, and are always welcome at your second home.
ATTENDING: University of California Santa Cruz ACCEPTED: University of Southern California SCHOLARSHIPS RECEIVED: International Study Scholarship SENIOR RESEARCH TOPIC: American and Chinese perspectives of the Korean War
Alumni Association Graduation Awards Recognizing graduates who best demonstrate the Camden Catholic ideals of Honor, Faith & Loyalty.
THE MONSIGNOR ANDREW E. MARTIN AWARD: Kathleen Spadaro (The College of New Jersey)
One of the most anticipated honors of commencement each year is the Monsignor Martin Award, bestowed on the class member who whole-heartedly loves and serves Camden Catholic as much as Monsignor Martin himself. Kathleen “Kate” Spadaro is undoubtedly deserving of the honor as she has inspired her classmates, her teammates and the entire CCHS community during her four years. She is the loudest and proudest supporter of the green and white, living out the motto of honor, faith and loyalty each day of her life, just as Monsignor Martin does.
GREEN AND WHITE ALUMNI AWARD: Mary Marino (St. Joseph’s University)
This prestigious award recognizes the ultimate CCHS graduate who has become an unquestionably well-rounded leader of his or her class. It awards the student who excels in the areas of scholastic achievement, extracurricular involvement, service to our school as well as the greater community. Congratulations to Mary Marino for this well-deserved honor!
New Learning Experiences Lead to T.H.E. Council
Inaugural “J-Term” Learning Session Challenges Students to Think Creatively In 2015 faculty member Jeff Bruckner proposed a multi-day learning session to help invigorate the faculty and engage Camden Catholic students in new and progressive ways. In January 2018 after many months of planning with administration and faculty, Camden Catholic launched the inaugural J-Term (aka. January Term).
including options such as: Jim Crow to Charlottesville: An Examination of Race Relations in Post-Abolition America, Putting It Together - A Performance Theater Experience, Forensic Science, Archery, Urban Challenge (service project), A New Perspective on the Natural World, Architecture through the Lego Lens, American Sign Language, and many more.
“Passionate, purpose driven, innovative, and creative, J-Term provides students and faculty the opportunity to investigate and reflect. J-Term is yet another innovative learning experience that makes Camden Catholic the premier Catholic high school in South Jersey,” says Bruckner.
J-Term was an exciting three days at Camden Catholic. From guest speakers (U.S. Senator Troy Singleton, San Francisco Giants scout John Barr, comedian and alumna La Tice Mitchell-Klapa ’90, biologist and alumnus Jack Szczpanski ’98, retired NFL center Chris Myers and Fr. Rob Hagan, chaplain of the Villanova University NCAA championship basketball team) to class trips (nature hikes, printmaking studio visits) and completely new learning experiences (archery, anyone?), Camden Catholic faculty challenged our students to learn new things and to think in creative ways.
In short, J-Term offered courses outside of the regular curriculum, yet rooted in student interest and faculty passions. J-Term fit in the academic calendar in the week between the first and second semesters, at a time when both students and faculty are ready for refreshment. Students enrolled in a choice of 30 “out of the box” courses,
Student showcase featuring the American Sign Language class doing the Eagles fight song
Archery students got out of their comfort zone to hit their targets
Mrs. Maccherone’s class visited the Wissahickon Park to learn more about the natural world
Student yogis got “centered” in the Emerald Café
Mrs. Rell’s Urban Challenge group achieved amazing results during their service work in Camden
Together Honoring Everyone: T.H.E. Council Celebrates the Many Faces of the CCHS Community Born from the J-Term learning session, T.H.E. Council was formed in the spring of 2018 to help shape the vision and goals of racial and cultural diversity, equity, and inclusion at Camden Catholic High School. As our world continues to evolve, Camden Catholic students, faculty, staff and administration need to continue to encourage our community’s well-being, and help to foster collaborative learning among our many diverse students in pursuit of our mission: to educate lifelong learners and leaders in a global society in the Catholic tradition. T.H.E. Council will host events and programming relative to our multicultural community, including Hispanic Heritage Month, African American History Month and Asian American Heritage Month. In addition, they hope to help encourage continued knowledge and acceptance of our community’s cultures, abilities and viewpoints.
CCHS Students React to School Violence On the 19th anniversary of the Columbine school shooting, and just over two months since the Stoneman Douglas tragedy, Camden Catholic students gathered on Shamrock Field on April 20 and joined in prayer to honor the lives lost, to prayer together for peace, and to make their voices heard. Our students were led by seniors Emma Daverso and Emily Deveraux, following the Diocesan high school students' meeting with Bishop Sullivan to discuss the issue of school violence. Faculty member Jeff Bruckner urged the students to thoughtfully and prayerfully follow the example of Jesus, to act with kindness, and to educate themselves on the issues facing their generation.
Leadership Academy in D.C. CCHS students visited Washington D.C. as a part of the Leadership Academy "Global Leadership" Program. This immersive lesson "Politics Through the Looking Glass: Understand the Confirmation Bias in American Politics: Washington D.C." was planned and led by students Gia Carusone ’18 and Thomas Marciano ’18. The lesson and workshop allowed students the ability to recognize biased-based division and the significance of collaboration in politics. Through contact with the offices of U.S. Senator Cory Booker and Congressman Tom MacArthur, students were able to obtain access to view the House, Senate, and Congress Gallery debates, research documents at the National Archives, and receive a docent-guided tour of the Library of Congress and the Capitol Building. Students explored what contributes to the formation of the divide among political parties and the aspects that help and hurt a successful debate.
Faculty moderator Joya Oasin is also working with Hoover, Christine Palladino, and faculty members at each grade level, to launch T.H.E. Council this year. “It is necessary to be able to discuss, voice opinions, and ask questions in a safe environment. In this way, we support each other by celebrating our own uniqueness and valuing the differences of the members of our community, to better understand the world in which we live,” says Joya.
DeRenzi ’79 Comes Home to CCHS “We saw a need for students to learn more about one another’s cultures, and to simply make Camden Catholic more fun,” says George Lecato ’19, one of T.H.E. Council’s student members. “We’d like to plan town hall meetings where students can discuss current events, new ideas, and ways of looking at things. We think we can make a difference now, this year, so that there is a foundation laid for the classes after we graduate. It’s going to be a great thing to tell people about, to tell future students that this is how they can feel comfortable here, this is how they can get involved.” Faculty moderator Matt Hoover ’11 says: “As an alumnus, it's important to me that we embrace our diversity to assure that it is preserved for as long as this community exists. It is one of the defining features of Camden Catholic, and I know firsthand how powerful the experience of going to a high school, that is diverse yet united, can be. By promoting an equitable and multi-abled, multi-cultural student population, the entire Camden Catholic community will be better off.” T.H.E. Council plans to host a springtime festival which celebrates the many cultures represented by CCHS students. As legacy student True Moore ’20 says “We want to help teach our students self-love, because when we love ourselves we are more confident to share who we are with one another.” What better way to share love then by bringing together food, fun and entertainment “that celebrates all Camden Catholic students’ cultures,” says True.
During Catholic Schools Week 2018 Camden Catholic hosted guest speakers to celebrate passion-driven purpose guided by faith. One of the featured speaker was Vice Admiral (retired) Nanette DeRenzi, CCHS class of 1979. Vice Admiral DeRenzi retired from the Navy in 2015. She was the 42nd Judge Advocate General (JAG) of the Navy, serving as principal military legal counsel to the Secretary of the Navy and Chief of Naval Operations, and the Department of Defense Representative for Vice Admiral DeRenzi with Joe Keller ’18 and Dean Cahill ’18 both of whom have Ocean Policy Affairs. As the an interest in serving in the Navy. JAG, she led the 2,300 attorneys, enlisted paralegals, and civilian employees of the worldwide Navy JAG Corps community. Her message was one of praise for Catholic Schools and most especially our dedicated faculty who she credits with giving her the confidence and courage to pursue her passion as a Naval attorney.

By Kevin Callahan ’79
As a young teen, after his family moved from North Jersey to Cherry Hill, Bill O’Donnell remembers his first day at Camden Catholic High School like it was, well, the most important day of his early life. Possibly, it was. Certainly, that September of 1967 morning in the back parking lot of the shiny white brick building on the hill above Cuthbert Boulevard, at the very least, shaped “Otis” for the next half century. “I went from having 100 friends to not knowing a soul,” O’Donnell recalled about that fateful first day at his new school. “When I got off the bus, there were 2,000 people in the parking lot and I was 4 foot-11 and 100-nothing-pounds. I was scared to death. So I looked over and saw another 4-foot-11 and 100-nothing-pound kid standing there. I went up to him and said, ‘do the freshmen go to the auditorium or the gymnasium?’ and he said, ‘man I don’t know, I’m new.’
And that was Michael Delaney, now I’m heading to his son Patrick’s wedding some 50 years later.” Indeed, O’Donnell remembers the meaning of that day better than the math of all these years. And, from that morning for a lost frosh not knowing anyone, searching for someone to ask where to go, wondering just where to line up, the O’Donnell family tree has spread to include multiple generations of graduates and current students who, in their daily lives, are emboldened, enriched and enlivened by the Camden Catholic themes of honor, faith and loyalty. “I have a lot of soulful friends who have come out of here,” O’Donnell said, “my children, my brothers and sisters, and my nieces and nephews have attended Camden Catholic.”
O’Donnell ’71 and his brothers Jay ’76 and Bob ’80, along with his sons William ’04, Michael ’06 and Matthew ’09 also contributed in immense ways to the wrestling program. His sisters Nancy Gaddis ’73 and Mary Jane Campbell ’85 are also green and white grads. Mary Jane has extended another branch of the O’Donnell tree, actually a root, when she married into the Campbell and McDermott families. And, like many Camden Catholic families, the three family names are often synonymous, and always intertwined, as their ties to their own Irish legacy burrow long and deep with meaning and memories. Mary Jane and Kevin Campbell’s children are the fourth generation of family legacies to attend CCHS. Ryan ’16 and Erin ’17 are recent graduates while Kelly will be a freshman in September. Great grandparents Robert McDermott Sr. and Catherine (Gross) were “the originals” who started this family legacy upon their graduation in 1934, which continues 84 years later. The Irish-laden family tree is enriched even more so with Kathy (McDermott) ’57 and Jerry Campbell ’56 who walked the halls of the old CCHS at 7th and Federal Streets in Camden. In addition, step-grandmother Christine Cuneo-Campbell ’68 is a CCHS alumna. Their great aunts Mary DelGrande ’70, Denise Culkin ’78, and great uncles Joe McDermott ’76 and Mark DelGrande ’70 all graduated from the new school in Cherry Hill.
However, the most famous tie for the Campbells to Camden Catholic in their renowned and extended family is Monsignor Robert McDermott ’60, their great uncle who has epitomized Camden Catholic’s three core tenets, especially the one of faith. “I grew up with him as a ‘second grandpop’,” says Erin. “It is awesome when people mention him because I know him on a different level than they do.” Monsignor McDermott retired as pastor of St. Joseph's ProCathedral in 2014. He grew up in the shadows of St. Joe’s spiral in East Camden before going on to become a star basketball player at Camden Catholic. He later was the head hoops coach of the Irish in the late 1970’s before returning to his roots to serve the people of his former parish. Monsignor is a legend among CCHS alumni and so many in the city of Camden. He founded the St. Joseph Carpenter Society, a non-profit housing provider; created the Romero Center Ministries, an education and retreat facility; and the Joseph’s House, a homeless mission. His many entities continue today under The Joseph Fund umbrella. In September of 2017 Monsignor was honored when Camden Catholic named the all new “Collaborative
Learning Center” in his name. Dozens of family members were present for the event. “He instills a lot of values in people,” said Erin Campbell, who earned 12 varsity letters and whose cousin Emily, Bob’s daughter, is in the Class of 2019. “He’s very caring. He’s done a lot for the city of Camden and everyone he has worked with and he has made a difference in their lives. He really is an inspiring person that I’ve always looked up to my entire life. I try to live out the values that he has instilled in each of us in the family.” In total there are 24 relatives who count themselves as proud and passionate alumni of the Camden Catholic family. In addition to those already mentioned, Maria (Manning) ’85, Theresa Bittner ’64, Mary Sparks ’58 and Rich Bittner ’61. Anyone remotely connected with Camden Catholic knows there are so many other great CCHS family trees, which extend generations and spread the values of honor, faith and loyalty, including the following five families.
CCHS FRIENDS BEFORE SISTERS: KATHY SINATRA AND TRISH HUNT
Camden Catholic family trees not only grow vertically, but the branches extend horizontally through marriages, as is the case with Kathy (Sinatra) ’88 who met her now husband through her CCHS friend Trish (Hunt) ’88.
“When you send your child to a Catholic school, you’re invested. Everyone is making an investment: the teachers and the faculty, especially. Everyone sacrifices but you know what you are spending, or sacrificing, has a value that is almost priceless.”
“Trish and I had been friends since freshman year. She met [her now husband] Bill O’Callaghan, they got a place at the shore, and that’s where I met my future husband, Mike,” Kathy Sinatra- O'Callaghan said about meeting the O’Callaghans from Pemberton in Sea Isle, or in “Camden Catholic South.”
Kathy’s younger brothers, twins Frank and Rob Sinatra graduated from Camden Catholic in 1992. Rob Sinatra was ordained in 2004 and is the pastor of Padre Pio Parish in Vineland. “It makes me proud to be part of a wonderful community,” Kathy said. “I had a wonderful experience at Camden Catholic. The friends that I met there are my best friends now, and I want the same experience for my children. I’m happy that they can be a part of the same tradition that was so crucial to my formation.” “When I walk the hallways at Back to School Night it feels like I’m a student again,” Kathy said, “I recognize many of the same faces and everyone is happy to be there and proud to be a part of it. When you send your child to a Catholic school, you’re invested. Everyone is making an investment: the teachers and the faculty, especially. Everyone sacrifices but you know what you are spending, or sacrificing, has a value that is almost priceless.”
“Now our children go to Camden Catholic together.” Kathy’s oldest son, Christopher, graduated this year and her daughter Mary Kate will graduate in 2021. Her youngest son, Ryan, will attend Camden Catholic and graduate in 2023 – yes he is going to Camden Catholic. “When Chris was looking at colleges, he said he wanted to be in a community, a small college, and be part of the family like he was a Camden Catholic. I thought that was really a nice testament to the school. There is a certain comfort level,” Kathy said. Trish’s oldest daughter, Lauren, graduated in 2017 and her daughter, Erin, will graduate in 2019. “The CCHS network is a wonderful family,” she says.
LOYAL LEGENDS CONTINUE WINNING WAYS: THE KENNEY & WIXTED FAMILIES
One doesn’t even have to step foot inside the white CCHS walls to know the Kenney name. All who drive over Route 38 on Cuthbert Boulevard know the name in big green letters “Tom Kenney Gymnasium,” in honor of the legendary football coach during the glory years from 1946 through 1952, when the Irish played for national championships. Tom Kenney’s daughters Marjorie O’Brien ’67, Kathy Collura ’70 and Barbara Prior ’78 all graduated from Camden Catholic. His son Rich taught at CCHS from 1980-1981 and again as an instructional assistant from 2015-2017. Barbara’s sons Sean ’07 (now deceased) and Tim ’08 were proud graduates. “Driving by Camden Catholic, my heart swells with pride seeenney K m o ing my Dad’s name on the T y Coach Legendar gymnasium,” Barbara said. “Seeing his name reminds me of our family legacy of my aunts, siblings, cousins and their children, and my sons that have kept the family tradition alive by attending and supporting Camden Catholic.” The Kenney family and many friends continue to contribute to the scholarship named for Tom Kenney, which helps provide tuition assistance to CCHS students. Tom’s brother Rich had five children who attended CCHS: Maureen Bowman ’85, Mike’76, Rich ’75, Tricia Wixted ’73 and
Joan Kenney-Romano ’71. Their mother, Joan (Forebaugh), graduated in 1946 from the school in Camden. The Kenney and Wixted families connected when Tricia married Jack, a 1972 graduate whose Tricia K enney W siblings, Mary Ann ixted ’73 Wixted-Weyer ’68, Jim ’70, Gerald ’79 and Frances Hall ’81, are all Camden Catholic graduates. Jack continues to serve his Alma Mater as a member of the Board of Trustees and Chairperson for the Hall of Fame Committee. He was inducted into the CCHS Hall of Fame in 2010 for his admirable football and basketball careers. Gerald Wixted’s son Gerry ’10 helped lead the Irish to a state title in basketball as a senior. Jack and Tricia’s daughter Elizabeth graduated in 2005. Joe ’76, the nephew of Tom and son of Tom’s youngest brother, Joe, has served on the CCHS Board of Trustees while watching his daughters Caitlin ’16 and Gillian ’19 enjoy the same CCHS experience as he did. Joe’s mother, Jane Hartman-Kenney, was in the class of 1951. Joe’s sister, Mary Kenney ’76 and her daughter Liana Kenney ’16 also graduated from Camden Catholic. Growing up in North Camden, the best friend of Tom Kenney was Patrick Corbett, the patriarch of one of the school’s largest and most legendary legacy families.
A TRADITION PASSED ON THE CORBETT & DYMOND FAMILIES
The Corbett-Dymond families also define loyalty with their remarkable legacy in Camden Catholic. The third generation is currently at CCHS with Patrick Corbett ’19 and recent graduate Maureen Dymond ’18. “My parents embodied the real spirit of Camden Catholic,” Tish Corbett, class of 1970, said. “They passed their feelings of loyalty, tradition and faith to their children and grandchildren. My parents just loved the school, they met there.” The patriarch of the family was Patrick Corbett, class of 1937 who passed away in 2001 at the age 81. He was a former Irish basketball player and later was a founding father of the Varsity Club. His wife of 53 years was Dorothy (Loughlin), class of 1941. Dorothy passed away in 2016 at the age of 91. They met backstage at a CCHS alumni play and their goodness was as tangible as their warmth and humor. “My mom was one of the first CCHS cheerleaders,” Tish said. “We all can sing the original cheers!” Upon her passing, the Corbett family graciously suggested donations be made to CCHS in Dorothy’s memory. Patrick and Dorothy had five children – James ’69, Tish ’70, Mary ’77, Tomas ’79 and Edward ’81. So, fitting with their parents meeting at the CCHS play, Edward ’81 was the lead in Fiddler on the Roof his senior year, and he worked in the IT department at CCHS in the 2000s, as well as for the performing arts department. Tomas ’79 and his wife Monica continue the Irish legacy with their children Elise ’13 and Patrick ’19. Patrick was even baptized by CCHS President Emeritus Monsignor Andrew Martin in the CCHS Chapel (pictured above). And, you can now find him living
out his family legacy as a key member of the Irish basketball team: he helped lead the team to their first sectional championship since 2010 this past season. “This means a lot,” Patrick said following one of his biggest games. “My grandfather played for Camden Catholic in the late 1930s, Patrick Corbett ’19 my dad worked here, and I would come to games when I was 3-years-old and wait for the gym to clear just so I could shoot for half an hour.” Tish’s daughters Kate ’07 and Shelly ’10 add to the growing list, as do Mary Corbett ’77 and husband John ’77 Dymond’s four children: Meghan ’00 (who married her classmate Morrison Fields ’00), Patrick ’04, Jack ’16 and Maureen ’18. Add up the names and the years and Patrick and Dorothy Corbett will have a grandchild in CCHS continuously from 1996 until 2019. “A lot of that really came from their grandparents,” Tish said about the third generation wanting to attend Camden Catholic. “My children went to Cherry Hill public elementary schools but they really wanted to go to Camden Catholic for high school. Besides the pull from their cousins being there, it was the whole feeling they got from their grandparents, and myself, of the spirit of the school and the contributions it makes to your life.”
THE COUSIN CONNECTION THE WALSH, WHEELER AND MURPHY FAMILIES The Walsh-Wheeler-Murphy families are continuing their legacy and contributions to Camden Catholic through “The Cousin Connection” as well. John Walsh ’85 and his wife Liz (Vigrass) ’87 met while both were students and athletic standouts for the Irish. John played football and baseball while Liz played field hockey and lacrosse, and was a member of the school’s first state champion field hockey team in 1985.
John and Liz have three children: Jack ’17 and twins Katie and Ryan, class of 2020. Jack was a football and lacrosse standout for the Irish. Katie is a player to watch for the remarkable Irish field hockey team, starting varsity as a freshman and sophomore. Ryan started varsity baseball his first two years and has made an impact on the varsity football squad this year. “After looking up to my siblings for many years, it’s really cool to be here and see what they were talking about,” said Erin Wheeler about playing at Camden Catholic. “All the teachers and coaches know them. It’s great to be around family.”
The athletic accomplishments of John and his siblings, and now the second generation of Walshes runs deep. John’s sisters Karen ’88 and Colleen ’95 both played field hockey and Karen (Walsh) Murphy '88 celebrates her 100th lacrosse goal while little sister Cousins Erin Wheeler and Collen (Walsh) Spangler '95 helps celebrate with the team in 1988. lacrosse in college. Karen Katie Walsh are joined by a (Murphy) was the first player to score 100 goals at Camden third Walsh cousin, Karen’s daughter Neve Murphy, CCHS class Catholic in lacrosse before going on to play field hockey and of 2021. If you go to any sporting event you are bound to bump lacrosse at Towson University. Colleen (Spangler) played both into a Wheeler or a Walsh, or a Murphy, and most likely a few field hockey and lacrosse at Saint Joseph's University. Maureen from each family. These families punctuate the pride of so many ‘82 and her husband Ed Wheeler have three children who are in the Irish legion. graduates of Camden Catholic and a current Irish student. Meghan ’10 and Katelyn ’11 both played hockey and lacrosse “If you have family from Camden Catholic, it is true pride that while brother Michael ’13 played football and baseball for the you get to play on the same field or same court as that family Irish. Erin ’19 has been a key contributor on the varsity level, in member,” Camden Catholic lacrosse coach Bridget Bigley Sipera ’02, who has played and coached many CCHS legacies. both lacrosse and field hockey, since her freshman year.
ALMOST A CENTURY-OLD LEGACY: THE MCKERNAN, MARINO & WOLFRAM FAMILIES The McKernan, Marino, Wolfram family legacy extends four generations, beginning in the 1920s and continuing today. Judy (Wolfram) Marino’s maternal grandfather, John P. McKernan, was one of the school’s first graduates as a member of the CCHS class of 1924. “My mom, Mary McKernanWolfram, was in the class of 1950,” Judy Marino said. “Her husband, my dad Joseph Wolfram, was also a CCHS graduate, class of 1948 - at the top of his class. All of their siblings also graduated from CCHS. My brother and I have proudly sent our kids to CCHS,” she continued. Judy’s twins John and Mary graduated this year, and Claire is in
the class of 2020. Judy’s brother, Joe Wolfram, has three sons who are all now alumni: Joseph ’15, Dan ’17 and Robert ’18. “Camden Catholic has always been the epitome of 'family' to us,” Judy added. “Throughout my childhood, I heard stories about my relatives’ experiences at CCHS, the teachers, the activities, the reunions. I learned firsthand with my own children how strong the CCHS family is, and it started at the first Open House we attended when they were in eighth grade. Since that time, my kids knew they belonged at Camden Catholic. They have forged such strong relationships with students and staff and such positive memories, I know they will never forget their time at Camden Catholic.” “CCHS graduates have a bond that it inexplicable, and I couldn’t be happier that our family has been a part of that bond for so long.” Remarkably, for so many, that bond started on the first day of school, as lost freshmen, like with Bill O’Donnell … just 50 years ago.
Arts AT CCHS
Anything Goes is De-Lovely
Featuring almost 60 students on the Grandi Auditorium stage (many of whom had never worn tap shoes before), and dozens more in the crew and show band, the 2018 spring musical was, once again, a fan favorite for thousands over the six show run in March.

Students Become Active Participants and Leaders As Rector of Camden Catholic High School Fr. Joseph Capella is helping to expose each Camden Catholic student to the many possible ways to explore our faith. From Mass at the Kairos Retreat, to allowing Christian Leadership students to plan and execute retreats, to training student ministers, Fr. Capella says he is “hoping to accommodate our students’ interests, match up with what they are involved in and what they are looking to learn about their faith.” 24
An example of matching up with student interests is the Catholic Performers for Christ retreat, which took place earlier this year. The retreat invited our 150 performing arts students to participate in a day-long reflection which was centered in core Christian values, and also celebrated the students’ God-given gifts, unique challenges as performers, and ways in which they too can be like Christ through their art. The Christian Leadership students planned and executed the retreat with the guidance of Fr. Capella. Each athletic team at Camden Catholic participates in Catholic Athletes for Christ retreats seasonally. Led by Fr. Capella, the teams gather during each season to reflect on their role on the field
and how they can be both inspired and energized by the Catholic faith. “Our Catholic Christian tradition reminds us that every aspect of the human experience is an opportunity to encounter Christ,” says Fr. Capella. “We hope to infuse our students’ athletic experiences with this understanding. It is a part of how CCHS helps to form every part of the student-body, mind and spirit.” “We are training students to be active participants, not passive recipients,” says Fr. Capella. One such example is student minister training. “Several students were trained prior to Lent, so that during Ash Wednesday Mass we had students administering ashes to their peers,” states Fr. Capella. These students will also be permitted
to preside at non-Eucharistic services. In addition to the many retreat options (CCHS hosts eight to nine different retreats each year), Fr. Capella also started the “Busy Student Retreat” which is based in the Ignatian spiritual exercises and allows students to have a personalized option if they are in need of such a route. The mission of Mercy which Camden Catholic was founded on is still truly present over 130 years later, and miles away from the original school building in Camden. “Mercy happens here,” says Fr. Capella. From service projects to daily prayer, monthly Masses, and student ministers, we are blessed to continue such a special tradition.

Kathy DiCamillo and Paula Mueller Retire A combined half century of service to CCHS, one in the arts, and one in the art of service, has been a great blessing to the thousands of students impacted by the guidance of Ms. Kathy DiCamillo and Mrs. Paula Mueller. Mrs. Mueller founded the “Learning to Serve. Serving to Learn.” program in 2005, which eventually became a model for service-learning in diocesan schools. During her 13 years at CCHS she worked with religion classes to teach the students how service learning grows their faith, allows them to be an example to others, and helps them to fulfill their mission as a Camden Catholic student. With her leadership, Camden Catholic students have performed more than 270,000 hours of service to their communities both here and abroad. Her mentorship has also encouraged hundreds of alumni to enroll in Catholic service opportunities in college and beyond. Ms. DiCamillo will also retire from Camden Catholic this year after spending 30 years as the fine art teacher, instructing students in fundamentals of art, drawing and painting, advanced placement art history and advanced placement studio art. Her guidance has inspired both gifted students and students newer to expressing their creativity. During her tenure she has fulfilled the role of Art Department Chair, been an artistic director for the annual spring musical set and helped to engage students in the many ways to use their talents to support school projects. Thank you Mrs. Mueller and Ms. DiCamillo for your enduring and inspiring work with the students of Camden Catholic!

IRISH ATHLETIC NEWS Irish Basketball Earns SJ Title & Crawford Named “Coach of the Year” Irish boys basketball captured the South Jersey Non-Public A title on March 8 with a win over St. Joe’s Metuchen while head coach Matt Crawford ’99 earned Coach of the Year honors and the team made it to the state final. This is the team’s first SJ title since 2010. Baba Ajike ’19 was named First Team All-South Jersey, Dominic Dunn ’18 named Second Team All-South Jersey and Uche Okafor ’19 received an Honorable Mention nod. Dunn also reached the 1,000 point milestone during the 2017-18 season. Assistant Coach Jim Crawford was honored by the Coaches vs. Cancer organization at their annual “Legends” event for his many contributions to the game of basketball in the Philadelphia area, first as a Big Five Hall of Fame player at LaSalle University and later as a state championship coach at CCHS for over 30 years.
At the Ivy League university she was an integral four-year contributor to the women’s basketball team, helping guide the team to a 2008 Ivy League title. She graduated ranked third in program history in games played and fourth in three pointers made, and was among a select few in program history to be selected captain for two consecutive years. She is the fourth all-time leading scorer in Camden Catholic girls’ basketball history. Matera is currently embarking on her Master’s degree in secondary education at the University of Pennsylvania.
Coach Palladino Retires, Matera ’07 Takes the Helm Longtime girls basketball coach Christine Palladino has retired from the helm of one of South Jersey’s most respected and successful programs. In her 34-year career as head coach, Palladino has led the team to 660 wins, the second highest win total in SJ girls basketball. Beyond her wins on the court, Coach “Pal” as she is known, has mentored hundreds of players over the years, many of whom have taken their talents to the next level as college players and coaches. Former player Christine Matera ’07 has been named her successor, and Palladino will remain on the coaching staff. Matera graduated from Harvard in 2011 with a degree in psychology.
“I’d like to thank Mr. Derrick Levine, Mrs. Mary Whipkey, and Mrs. Heather Crisci for this humbling opportunity to coach at my alma mater,” said Matera. “Over the last 34 years, Mrs. Palladino has built the premier student-athlete experience at Camden Catholic, which I was blessed to be a part of both as a player and assistant coach. Although it will be difficult to succeed the best coach in South Jersey history, I, along with our entire coaching staff, will look to provide continuity for our current student-athletes and wholeheartedly encourage our alumnae to remain a vital part of our program’s success.” 27
Spadaro ’18 Gains National Recognition Senior Kate Spadaro had quite the year. She was named a CHOP Ambassador for Buddy Walk 2017, was featured on 6ABC along with cheerleading teammate Jade DiSanti ’19 for not letting their disabilities hinder their participation in activities at CCHS, scored a goal in a varsity lacrosse game and was named Homecoming Queen. The icing on the cake for Spadaro’s senior year came when she gained national recognition after scoring the first basket of the game on senior night of the Irish girls basketball’s season. Spadaro has played JV and been the varsity manager for four seasons. She moved up to varsity for this special night and got every fan on their feet when she swished the team’s first bucket of the game.
Wrestling Dominates Irish wrestling kicked of their season in a historic way and didn’t look back all winter. They brought home a Virginia Duals title in the early season and their domination continued through March as they brought home the Conference, District 25, Region 7 and South Jersey titles, finished #2 in South Jersey and #17 in the state and were state finalists. Especially notable is the State Wrestling Title which University of Penn commit Lucas Revano ’19 earned at 132 lbs. In addition to Revano, Dante Monaco ’20, Cody Walsh ’20, Anthony Croce ’19 and Brandon Mooney ’20 placed in regions and competed in the NJSIAA State Wrestling Tournament. Both Croce and Revano surpassed the 100 wins mark this season as well.
Villanova’s Fr.

Joseph Capella, Director of Catholic Identity followed by special guest speaker Rev. Rob Hagan, Associate Athletic Director and chaplain of the men’s basketball and football teams at Villanova University. Fr. Hagan spoke about keeping faith, and your relationship with God and Jesus paramount. He reminded the students, parents and coaches that despite the wins and losses, championships and records, your relationship with God, your humility and how you relate to others is the ultimate “win.” CCHS congratulates Fr. Hagan and the entire Villanova Wildcat family on another NCAA championship in 2018!
After being featured on multiple news stations and in the Courier-Post, the Harlem Globetrotters took notice. The team planned a special surprise for Kate and her teammates as they sent player Zeus McClurkin to show Kate and the Irish some signature Globetrotter tricks. Zeus also applauded the entire team for helping to lift Kate up, and to thank them for being examples of kindness and inclusion. The story was picked up by Sports Illustrated and various local and national outlets.

A Letter from the President & Principal
Dear Friends: At this year’s Baccalaureate Mass for the class of
Mary Whipkey President
Heather Crisci Principal
2018 Bishop Dennis Sullivan called to our attention the homily of Pope Francis at New Year’s Eve Mass this year. The Holy Father reminded us that, despite the noise of the news cycle and the many political leaders vying for power around the world, it is ordinary citizens of the world who have the greatest ability to provide the most positive impact. To be, as Pope Francis called them, and Bishop Sullivan reverberated: “artisans of the common good.” During this New Year’s Eve homily the Pope expressed “sympathy and gratitude for all those persons who, every day, contribute with small but precious gestures to the common good, who seek to do their duty as well as possible.” Specifically, he expressed thanks to “parents, teachers and all educators who, with the same style, seek to form children and teenagers in a civic sense, with an ethics of responsibility, educating them to feel part [of the city] to take care of it, and to be interested in the reality that surrounds them.” Bishop Sullivan challenged our graduates to take this to heart, as it is their generation that has the greatest potential to be artisans of the common good. As you read through this year’s annual CCHS Magazine, you will note that the Camden Catholic experience is providing the foundation to shape our students into the kind, faithful and intelligent “artisans” the world so desperately needs. It is evidenced in our accomplished alumni, our graduating class and in our future freshmen. It is proven by the hundreds of donors, who contribute thousands each year, to help us continue to grow and evolve as one of the region’s best Catholic high schools. During the class of 2018 senior address Senior Ellie Jung shared what the Camden Catholic experience provides, beyond the tangibles of coursework, test scores, concert performances and wins or losses: “I have realized that happiness comes not just from academic success, but also from letting people into our lives. I will always treasure my memories of Camden Catholic, especially the people of Camden Catholic. Because of Camden Catholic, we leave high school as people who overcome challenges, as people who appreciate diversity, as people who bond through common experience, as people who devote ourselves to faith, and as people who pursue our passions.” Yours in Honor, Faith and Loyalty,

Leaving a Legacy:
The Gift of a Camden Catholic Education By Kevin Callahan The Rebilas twins, Joseph and Giavonna, grew up dreaming of attending Camden Catholic, which isn’t surprising considering their family ties to the school. After all, their father, Lenny, graduated from Camden Catholic in 1985. However, their mother, Christina, who graduated from Pennsauken High in 1990, also impacted the bond and love that Joey and Gia feel for Camden Catholic. “Coming from Pennsauken, Camden Catholic was a rival school,” Christine said. “But, after Len and I were married and had children and as the Camden Catholic connections became more visible, I said ‘this is unbelievable.’” “No matter where we were, or if we were in some kind of problem, Camden Catholic friends or fellow alumni would come and they would help. We may not have talked to them for 10 years but they didn’t skip a beat. I love that,” Christine continued. “No matter where we would go, if my husband made a call, 10 of them are there waiting for you. I want my kids to have that.” Joey and Gia will have that with the help of the Monsignor Devlin Scholarship of $5,000 per-year, which will be split between the twins. Monsignor Joseph W. Devlin, a 1947 graduate of Camden Catholic, was one of the original members of the 1887 Legacy Giving Society, which includes donors who “have left a gift or made provisions in their estate for a gift to Camden Catholic.” “It really helps our parents because there’s two of us,” Gia said about the scholarship money, “it’s been very helpful to our family.” Monsignor Devlin's bequest, which has funded a $5,000 yearly scholarship, is a full circle example of how a legacy donor impacts a CCHS legacy family, although they don’t have to be a legacy to receive the scholarship. “I feel grateful and it feels amazing because of everything he did for everybody,” Joey said about Monsignor Devlin, a life-long teacher with a clever sense of humor and a nifty left-handed jump shot from the hip in basketball. “It’s an honor.” The scholarship fund is so fitting since Monsignor Devlin dedicated his life’s ministry to teaching. He began his teaching career at his Alma Mater and then starting his tenure with LaSalle University in 1973 when former Camden Catholic basketball coach Jim Crawford was a senior star forward for the Explorers. Monsignor Devlin remained a respected professor in the LaSalle theology department until his retirement in 2012. The twins, who graduated from Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Maple Shade, will be freshmen in September. And, like Monsignor Devlin’s fondness of basketball, they both play sports.
Gia currently plays soccer for Jersey South FC. She played basketball for OLPH and softball for the Cherry Hill Gators. Joey is a goalkeeper for Jersey South FC and Maple Shade Soccer. He plays baseball for Cherry Hill Babe Ruth and basketball for OLPH. Their father, Lenny played basketball and baseball all four years for the Irish. “Dad takes us to see baseball, basketball and football games at CCHS,” Joey said. “The Thanksgiving football game is one of our favorite annual traditions.” “We’ve been going to Camden Catholic basketball games since we were little,” Gia said. They are also following the green and white path of their grandmother, Domenica, who graduated from Camden Catholic in 1954, and their aunts - Gina Rebilas-Bannister ’78, Lynn RebilasDunn ’81 and Annette Rebilas-Kresge ’83. “It makes me even more excited for high school,” Gia said. “Back in fifth grade I was scared, but now I feel like part of the family and it makes me excited and happy.” Gia would like to be a physical therapist while Joey likes engineering. “Earning this scholarship I have the opportunity to represent Monsignor Devlin and the many things he did for Camden Catholic,” Joey said. “This will be my second family, my home away from home.” And, not surprisingly after she got to know Camden Catholic, their mother is comfortable, too. “I did not witness the true tradition and pride of the Camden Catholic community until I was married to Lenny,” Christine said. “For me, being an outsider and watching it, seeing people who are there for you, our children becoming a part of it, it’s an unbelievable feeling. The virtues and the qualities that the alumni gained as students and continue to carry with them, I’ve never seen anything like it.” Now the Rebilas family will have the pleasure, thanks to Monsignor Devlin’s legacy, of watching those virtues grow in their own children.

Legacy Giving: An Explanation www.cchslegacy.org Why consider legacy giving? Legacy giving provides a time-honored method for a donor to express generosity and commitment to Camden Catholic High School, while benefiting both the donor and the school. Depending on the legacy giving vehicle, donors may continue to enjoy income and other benefits while making a gift. In addition, the federal tax code provides for various legacy gift instruments, which may offer benefits that may favorably affect a donor’s present and future income and estate taxes. Gifts We Gratefully Accept Camden Catholic High School accepts gifts for the purpose of furthering its mission. Legacy gifts can come in the form of a deferred gift, a gift where the School benefits from a remainder interest, or a combination of the two. The available options include: • • • • •
Bequests Charitable Gift Annuities Charitable Remainder Trusts Real Property Life Insurance
Recognition of Gifts Execution of a legacy gift agreement immediately entitles the donor to recognition as part of the School’s 1887 Legacy Society. Donors may choose to remain anonymous. For more information or to connect with us regarding an intended gift please visit the Legacy Giving website: www.cchslegacy.org, or contact the Advancement Office at 856-663-2247 or Jennifer.VanEs@camdencatholic.org.

Alumnus J.M. Procacci ’70 returned to CCHS to present the second year of the Estrella Naciente “Rising Star” Scholarships. Procacci, CEO of Procacci Brothers Sales Corporation and Santa Sweets, established Estrella Naciente for Latino students at CCHS. This year’s scholarship winners are Robert Pacheco-Montes ’21 and Demetrio Sampson ’21. JM’s companies, Procacci Brothers and Santa Sweets, donated $100 for every home run hit by the Philadelphia Phillies during the 2017 Major League Baseball season to establish the scholarship. The Phillies’ season-ending tally of 174 home runs resulted in a donation amount of $17,400! In conjunction with SSN (Spanish Sports Network), during Phillies game broadcasts, the scholarship is promoted, especially when HR’s are hit.
Memorial Gifts Honor Loved Ones When Mr. Joseph Robert Murtin passed away this year his family requested that in lieu of flowers, donations could be made to Camden Catholic basketball. Mr. Murtin became a fan of Irish basketball when his sons were on the team and continued to support the program for decades. All five of Joseph and Lorri’s children attended CCHS: Sharon ’78, Joe ’79, Rob ’80, Dominic (deceased) ’81 and Maria ’85. To remember a loved one in this way is a blessing to the CCHS community, and a fitting tribute to honor their loyalty to Camden Catholic

JOIN US! There are so many ways to make a difference. Which will you choose?
THE ANNUAL FUND The greatest number of gifts to CCHS are unrestricted cash donations to the Annual Fund. Annual Fund gifts can also be restricted to tuition assistance, arts or athletics, including specific sports. These gifts make strides toward helping us maintain a competitive value proposition for families seeking a Catholic education for their children.
The Shamrock Society The Shamrock Society is our giving club for donors who contribute $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund each year. Members of this society send an outward message that they know Camden Catholic and its students are a worthy investment.
Tuition Assistance Approximately one third of our students receive some form of tuition assistance based on a standardized assessment of financial need. Your gifts help each of our families continue to choose Catholic education. All recipients are chosen based upon academic performance and demonstrated financial need. Why Tuition Assistance Matters For years, the Sisters of Mercy were able to contribute their services to Camden Catholic High School to reduce the cost of tuition, thereby making a Catholic education affordable for families. Today, the rising costs of healthcare and technology attribute to a higher cost of education, and tuition must be increased accordingly. What can I do? • Contribute to tuition assistance and you will afford a student the opportunity to find themselves, uncover talents, grow academically and spiritually, and develop leadership skills for a 21st century world. • Named scholarships can both support a student and honor a living individual, family, group, or memorialize a loved one.
Other Ways To Contribute Stock – Camden Catholic accepts gifts of securities, please contact the Advancement Office for required forms. Matching Gifts- Many corporations now support private secondary education through matching gifts. Check to see if your company offers a matching gift program, and multiply the impact you’re already making at Camden Catholic. In Memoriam - You, or your family, can choose to recommend gifts to Camden Catholic in lieu of flowers within an obituary. If you wish the gifts to be restricted to a specific purpose please contact the Advancement Office at the time of the obituary’s publication.
