Carmel Catholic High School Annual Report 2018-2019
Mission Centered in Jesus Christ, Carmel Catholic is a college preparatory high school, empowering students to be servant leaders filled with zeal for faith and scholarship. Rooted in the charisms of the Order of Carmelites and the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our Catholic community embraces a tradition of dignity, diversity, and justice.
History Founded in 1962, Carmel Catholic is jointly sponsored by the Order of Carmelites (O.Carm.) and the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM). In 1960, the Archdiocese of Chicago invited these two religious communities to build a co-institutional Catholic high school in Lake County. In September 1962, Carmel High School for Boys opened its doors to a freshmen class of 175 students. In September 1963, Carmel High School for Girls admitted students. In August 1988, the two schools merged and a separate corporation was established for the new co-educational school. For more than 50 years Carmel Catholic High School has been committed to providing a quality Catholic education and forming young men and women to make a positive impact in society.

Everyone has a place at Carmel Catholic. Everyone. In this place, Carmel Catholic, we are family – including our Corsairs from more than 100 area grade schools, our international students from multiple continents, our diverse faculty and staff, and our dedicated parents and alumni. We treat each other with respect. We embrace our differences. And we discover lifelong friendships…all while providing a first-class, global education. Here, we take care of one another. We value each other’s interests and passions. At Carmel Catholic, the welcome is real and robust. Because of it, students find a true fit that paves the way for success. Belonging means being in the right place. And in this place you’ll find our Carmel Catholic students and loving community.
At Carmel Catholic, questions are not just encouraged. They shape the fabric of the community. How do I become who I was created to be? Where is Christ in my life? Do I understand my faith? The journey of growing, of exploring, of discovering oneself as a child of God happens naturally here. It’s an environment where students, faculty and staff are valued, seen as significant, and taken care of. Where the whole person is educated. Where there’s an inclusive tone set - a universality. An unwavering belief in each other, visible in extensive academic and counseling support programs, faith in action initiatives, and teacher development, produces conviction and confidence. In this authentically Catholic setting, students form positive relationships and learn values they can carry through to all aspects of their life. Over four years, students learn to believe.
An ongoing conversation unfolds each day at Carmel Catholic. Administrators, teachers, and peers all want to know what’s next in the life of a Corsair. What’s the next step? Is the preparation in place to take that step? Whether it’s shifting to an honors class, joining a new team, narrowing college selections, or leading a Kairos retreat, Carmel ensures our students become more. More engaged. More interested in tomorrow and how they can have an impact. More interested in finding the best version of themselves and all that God intends for them to be. The higher standards here, coupled with first-class resources, elevate student achievement. Invitations arrive – daily – to excel. Maybe try a dual credit course. Consider the engineering track. Take a school-sponsored college visit. Whatever the pursuit, transformative opportunities abound. Carmel Catholic’s mission has been, and will continue to be, about helping students succeed.
Letter from Brad Bonham, President Dear Members of our Carmel Catholic High School Community, I look back upon the last academic year with sincere gratitude and blessings. Our students, faculty, staff and greater community took part in so many aspects of service to others, academic success and religious formation, truly experiencing the faith-filled community of Carmel. I am so honored to be part of such a vibrant Catholic environment. Let me share with you information about our graduating class of 2019. Made up of 291 graduates, our class was awarded close to $45 million in college scholarships and awards. They boast a 100% college attendance or military enrollment joining more than 107 post-secondary academic institutions. As a Carmel Community, we are so very proud of all their achievements and ask for your continued prayers for success in their personal and career goals. Ninety percent of our students are involved in extracurricular activities complementing their academic experience. There are so many success stories, but I want to share one in particular with you. Our NYAN (Not Your Average Nerds) Robotics Team competed and won the World Championship in Detroit in May. Up against 7,000 teams with an audience of over 30,000 at Ford Stadium, our young leaders displayed excellence in knowledge and innovation. We are so proud of our students in NYAN, who won the state championship for the last two years and placed 12th in the World Championship the previous year. With a commitment to inclusion and equality for all members of our community, a Diversity Committee was formed to develop strategic goals to realize and live our mission to embrace a tradition of dignity, diversity, and justice rooted in the charisms of the Order of Carmelites and the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the spring of 2019, the Board of Directors approved an aggressive plan designed to fund and initiate a studentfocused educational initiative in an unprecedented manner. The goal is to offer Carmel Catholic students an educational experience that is accelerated and driven beyond what is available anywhere else in our region. The plan, termed Advantage: Carmel, includes a substantial upgrade in resources, facilities, and academic programming. The following are but a few details of this robust plan:
Carmel Catholic students will have an opportunity to take advantage of our expanded Dual Credit program, where
they may earn up to a year of college credit before graduation. The dual credit offerings will enhance academic quality and college preparation, and assist in reducing college expenses. This year, we welcomed 25 students from around the globe into our new International Student Program. As our students continue to enroll in some of the most selective higher education institutions, they immerse themselves in a highly diverse and international student body. This program allows students to interact and collaborate with students from different cultures and countries to give them an exceptional transition into a global higher education market. Strong ACT and SAT scores continue to be used in higher education as a tool in admissions and scholarship selections. Carmel Catholic provides a proven semester-long preparatory course to improve student performance on the ACT test. Typically, many of these preparatory courses offered are after school and collide with after-school activities. As part of the academic course options, students who partake in this option will find themselves prepared for the ACT exam. I am pleased to announce that we have launched an aggressive campaign to increase financial aid by $500,000 and include a merit-based scholarship program. The program will be based on performance on the entrance exam and will offer four-year renewable scholarships. We know that the lack of financial assistance is the number one reported reason why families choose not to send their son or daughter to Carmel Catholic. It is our goal that families who want a Carmel Catholic education will not be turned away because of financial hardships. Carmel Catholic has always had strong academic rigor, which will now be complemented with a comprehensive college-style support program. A Comprehensive Academic Learning Resource Center (CALRC) will be available for all students to utilize a variety of services and materials to facilitate academic learning and growth. The services offered in the CALRC will include peer tutoring, peer mentoring, adult tutoring, supported study, academic coaching, freshmanonly class â€œHigh School Studies 101,â€? mini-workshops on
academic success, coordinated note-takers, student-lead review sessions, and student-lead refresher courses. This past summer, we began renovations on our beautiful Auditorium. More than $300,000 was donated to restore this center of our performing arts programs. The first phase of the restoration included new seats, flooring, finishes in the promethium, and a brand new stage floor. Our performing arts students do a phenomenal job and we want to provide them the best space to perform. I encourage you to please take advantage of our “Take A Seat” program to be an advocate for the arts and show your support of this transformation by purchasing a seat in honor or memorial of yourself or someone special. These funds will assist in upgrading our sound and light systems, along with other critical needs. Please visit carmelhs.org/ seats/ or contact our Office of Institutional Advancement for details. We will be taking our classrooms and converting them into state-of-the-art learning centers. Facilities will be renovated according to each academic department’s needs, creating a learning environment that will better engage students and promote student interaction. The center of our spiritual worship is in the Brandsma Chapel, where we have renovation plans underway. The beautiful stained-glass window of our Lady of Mt. Carmel will be featured and we plan to upgrade the finishing with a prominent area for students to pray before the Eucharist. Plans also include a space to honor Blessed Titus Brandsma, Carmelite martyr. Our Chapel has always been a beautiful place for quiet prayer or celebration of Mass. These upgrades will foster an expression of our devotion to our Lord.
Carmel Catholic Engineering has put its name on the map! Our three-year engineering program offers a wide variety of courses for college credit. This program provides instruction in problem-solving, brain-storming, sketching, CAD, robotics, coding, and industry-specific experiences for many types of engineering. Students learn the material while working under timed deadlines in a collaborative environment. Athletics plays such a vital role in student development. Any student, regardless of athletic ability, can be part of a Carmel Catholic athletic team. This year, we are expanding athletic options to include swimming, bowling, and crew teams. College visitations and support services are vital in maximizing opportunities for our students. College counseling services are expanding to add a college tour program. Students will be given a large variety of colleges and universities to visit and workshops will be available for added support for scholarship and essay review. Our goal is to provide the most comprehensive and best college counseling support program for our families. As you may have seen, the construction in our main entrance, the Kathy A. Nemmers Welcome Center will be available for students, parents and visitors this spring. We are so thankful to Joe Nemmers ’76, past board president, who provided this beautiful gift of $1 million in honor of his late wife, Kathy. I know that our entire school community will enjoy this multi-purpose center for classes, departmental meetings, lectures, guest speakers, information sessions, and student activities. Lastly, we have eliminated many of the barriers regarding transportation. A new carpooling app, auxiliary parking with shuttle service, and expanded bus routes with more pickups and drop-offs are currently being utilized.
All of this could not be possible without the trust and ongoing generosity we have been given by our loyal Carmel Catholic community. It is our community of benefactors, students, parents, teachers and friends that make Carmel such a special place. Please take some time to review this Annual Report, which details our year in more specifics. I thank and celebrate each of you for your commitment. With gratitude, Brad Bonham, Ph.D. President

Alumni Spotlights Carmel Catholic’s alumni continue to shine and make their mark on the world around us. Carmel Catholic High School values are the foundation that allow our students to become servant leaders enriching the lives of individuals, building better organizations and ultimately creating a more just and caring world. Here are a few of our alumni sharing how Carmel shaped them and their post-high school experiences (more on pages 36, 37 and 44).
Jennifer (Slater ’90) Burkhalter Long time Carmel administrator Jennifer (Slater ’90) Burkhalter is on a quest for learning—learning for students, faculty and herself. “We are constantly learning,” Burkhalter said of the faculty at Carmel. “Our teachers are thirsty for learning. They are studying best practices, reading research and understanding better how to reach out and inspire students’ desires to learn and live in today’s world.” Burkhalter has filled many roles at Carmel as an alumna, faculty member, administrator and parent. Her involvement with Carmel began as a freshman in fall of 1986. In her current position as assistant principal for teaching and learning, Burkhalter is utilizing her experience and training to facilitate Carmel’s commitment to assist faculty to improve their teaching skills and techniques for the benefit of the student body. “There is an abundance of research and resources to help teachers instruct their students effectively,” Burkhalter said. Gone are the days of ‘drill and kill’ homework assignments. “When I was a teacher, students were frequently assigned too much homework that really did not help them or their faculty identify the students’ progress in their classes. Homework assignments are now more purposeful in advancing the students’ skills, or as formative assessments used to measure the student’s understanding of the material.” Carmel Catholic encourages faculty to attend seminars, conferences, and join professional organizations to enhance and improve their skills. Each year, Carmel allows each faculty member a $450 stipend for continuing education. Carmel also pays for a teacher’s first Master’s Degree to encourage ongoing education.
In addition, faculty travel abroad to better relate places and events to their course content. For example, Jim Schuster, a Carmel social studies teacher, visited Rwanda, Africa last summer to study the genocide and the after-effects that took place there. He is reporting his experience to students and faculty and “putting faces on the event.” Burkhalter sees Carmel as a great place to teach and work. The faculty are professional and they enjoy what they do—teaching and interacting with their students. “They see their work as a vocation,” she said. “They choose to be here.” There is a mutual respect developed between faculty and students which makes for a satisfying experience for everyone. Burkhalter returned to Carmel to teach English immediately after graduating from Bradley University. She taught English for 13 years and was the English Department Chair for three years before becoming an assistant principal. Her inspiration to become a teacher developed because of two of her Carmel teachers, Maria Betlinski and former Carmel Principal Lynne Strutzel. Burkhalter remembers with great respect these two mentors that shared their love of learning with her. Burkhalter and her husband, Tim, are also the proud parents of two Carmel alumni, Ben ’17 and Anna ’19. Their youngest, Luke, will attend Carmel next fall.

Mass and Blessing for the Kathy A. Nemmers Welcome Center On Friday, August 16, friends and family gathered together for the Mass and Blessing for the Kathy A. Nemmers Welcome Center. Father Robert Carroll, O.Carm., Ph.D. was the principal celebrant and Father John Hennessey, Father Anthony Tinker FHS, and Father Michael Cronin were the concelebrants. “Kathy was a dreamer, and growing up as one of 10 kids on a small Iowa farm, sometimes dreams were all she had. But hers were not illusory dreams, rather, she wanted to achieve big things and spent her whole life fulfilling those dreams. And, having invested so much of her time and energy at Carmel, she also dreamed big for the school. Which brings us to the reason for the Welcome Center,” said Joe Nemmers ’73. The Welcome Center will enhance Carmel Catholic by making a positive and welcoming first impression on prospective parents and students, as well as for all who enter the school in the future. It will also provide a dedicated meeting and conference center space, to fulfill the school’s overdue need for such a facility. “We are joined this morning by a number of Carmel classmates, past and current parents, faculty and staff, and religious. This Welcome Center, the blessing ceremony, and your presence, are all reminders of the greatest gift the school has given each of us, which is the lifetime blessing of membership in the Carmel community,” said Joe. Kathy served on the Board of Directors at Carmel Catholic High School and she and Joe have four sons, Sam ’01, Mike ’03, Max ’06 and Tom ’10 Nemmers. Kathy was a member of the Carmel community for a long time, and this Welcome Center will ensure that her presence will remain vibrant.
Bryan Smith ’01
Kaye Foley ’07
Bryan A. Smith, MD joined the University of Chicago faculty as an Assistant Professor of Medicine in Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation Cardiology in 2017. Dr. Smith attended Harvard College and graduated in 2005 with a BA in biology, and completed his MD at the Pritzker School of Medicine in 2010. As a medical student, he was president of the Pritzker chapter of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) and he received an Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) grant to develop educational programming for black men in a community based clinic. In addition, he was a tutor and a mentor for pipeline programs and science outreach on Chicago’s South Side. He continued at the University of Chicago for his internal medicine residency where he chaired the Minority Housestaff Committee. He completed his general cardiology fellowship at the University of Chicago in 2016 and his advanced heart failure and transplantation fellowship in 2017 at Northwestern Memorial Hospital during which he continued his work on investigating heart failure outcomes in an urban population. From a clinical standpoint, Dr. Smith manages patients with chronic and advanced heart failure. This includes patients in the outpatient setting, intensive care unit, those who have undergone heart transplantation and those who are supported with left ventricular assist devices. Dr. Smith recently participated in the first ever back to back triple organ (heart, kidney, liver) transplant marathon in two patients over the span of 48 hours which highlighted the University of Chicago as a world renowned expert in multi-organ transplantation. Dr. Smith is also very involved with medical education and promoting diversity among medical trainees. He is the faculty co-mentor for SNMA and an active member of the University of Chicago Diversity Committee. In 2016, he gave the Bowman Society Junior Faculty Research Lecture and he was also a Pritzker Poetry Contest Winner. He is a dedicated interviewer for the Pritzker School of Medicine and is also a member of the Pritzker admissions committee and the AOA Task Force. He was the 2019 recipient of the Department of Medicine’s Overall Excellence in Clinical Service Award for New Faculty. His research focuses on racial differences in heart failure and heart transplantation, and community interventions to improve heart failure outcomes. He has been the co-author of numerous book chapters and articles, and he continues to work on researching ways to identify and reduce health care disparities in heart failure. “Carmel Catholic gave me the best jumpstart I could have asked for in my life and my career. What I remember and value most about my experience is that I was given a supportive, structured, faith-based environment to help me grow and mature.”
Kaye Foley ’07 left her strong Carmel family roots soon after graduating from the University of Illinois to pursue her dreams in New York City—television production. Since then, she has had experience working for ABC on This Week, Katie Couric’s daytime talk show and later was a rising star at Yahoo News. She is now a segment producer for HBO’s Emmy winning show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. She describes her current position as sort of a satirical “deep dive” into the news of today. “I wanted to make a difference in the world. I’m at my dream job!” “Carmel taught me to think critically... I still go back and look at some of my folders from classes at Carmel.” She referenced her AP History and AP English classes and says that Mr. Schuster and Mrs. Mueller were key and the combination of those two classes were wonderful. Kaye says Carmel, and specifically the Kairos experience, helped her to learn to put herself in other’s shoes. “We all have a responsibility to be engaged in the world and look beyond ourselves… to know what’s going on in the world. Read a source of news every day. See how the world around you impacts everyone. Be a global citizen. Be engaged. Vote.”
Brian Donahoe ’83 While looking back on his high school days, Brian Donahoe ’83 considered himself an average Carmel student. He was involved with some sports and school activities and discovered he was good at math. His love of math and science led him to computer and engineering degrees from the Milwaukee School of Engineering and ITT culminating in a Masters in Electrical Engineering. His career evolved from a job at Motorola where he was instrumental in the design and development of high tech chips for numerous products; to starting his own business, Digital Design Corporation, an engineering firm specializing in the design of sophisticated echips, circuit boards, and systems used in advanced image processing electronics needed by medical, military, automotive and industrial companies. Brian’s company generously supplied Carmel with new clocks/speakers/PA units now being installed in all of the classrooms. He is also putting these technical and managerial skills to use for Carmel Catholic students as a coach for the internationally successful robotics team, NYAN Robotics. Brian said his oldest son, Daniel ’17, and his friend Kevin Coda ’17 started the Carmel robotics club. “They met in my basement. My son loved to do geeky projects with his friends,” Brian said. As the club started creating more prolific and sophisticated projects with Brian’s mentoring, they decided they wanted to “go pro” and compete against other high school teams. Under Brian’s guidance but with the team doing all the work, the team in its first year went on past state to compete at national
Brian Donahoe ’83 (back row, second from left) and NYAN Robotics team. level competitions against many advanced teams. “We made a lot of mistakes. We all learned together. Creating, building and learning as a group was fun for the team,” he explained. “Watching the kids go from having ideas and dreams to having something of value and highly competitive created at the end is exciting. I get to watch them grow regardless of outcome.” In the spring of 2019, the team achieved international recognition for its efforts, winning the finals and championship bout at Ford Field in Detroit for the World Championship, where 160 of the qualifying teams from across the world competed (7,000 teams began the season). This year, the team has left Brian’s basement lab and found a new home in Carmel’s newly redesigned classroom for robotics and the program has expanded to a second team. Along with the expanded commitment to the robotics program, Carmel extended its STEM focused course offerings for college level engineering courses and other science and math programs.
As Brian has grown older he has come to understand how his Carmel experience has had a positive influence on his family and business development and practices. “Carmel centered me with values, respect, and ethics when I was a student,” Brian said. He currently works diligently to deal with his employees and customers honestly and openly. These practices even translate into the products his company designs and manufactures. “We really work to create high quality, dependable designs and products for our customers.” Developing a strong sense of ethics is important to Brian which is why he sent his children and nephew to Carmel. Brian explained that he liked the culture present at Carmel when he was a student. “The teachers were good people, and they cared.” He still finds the same mindful and respectful culture for others at Carmel today. He is proud that the robotics team itself is ethically centered. The team strives to work out its own challenges and when they see something wrong, they call it out. Brian loves sharing his skills and passion with the team members. “Geeks hanging with geeks—kind of fun,” he said with a smile.

A Carmel Catholic Legacy: The Swindell Family
Frank Swindell Jr. ’81, Cindy (Amato) Swindell ’82, Jacqueline ’08, Frankie ’10, Megan ’11, Rachel ’13, Anthony ’15, Kelly ’18, Vincent ’20 We were raised Catholic and are alums of Carmel Catholic. We believe in Catholic education and feel that it is important to provide an opportunity for our children to learn and grow in a Christ-centered environment. All seven of our children have attended Carmel Catholic and this upcoming school year our youngest will graduate with the class of 2020. We are grateful for the experiences that we have had and know that our children value the education they received at Carmel Catholic. They know that their teachers believed in them and cared about them as individuals. They grew to be part of a community that fosters life-long friendships and life-long learning. A Carmel Catholic education helps students grow in their faith. Our children experienced daily prayer, monthly mass, yearly retreats, and a variety of religion classes that provided dialogue to help them better understand their faith. They were instructed in the Catechism and the Bible as well. This knowledge has helped them throughout their college years and beyond, to face challenges with a sense of confidence and to make good decisions rooted in truth along the way. All of these experiences have allowed them to apply what they learned in the classroom to their everyday life as Christians. The Carmel Catholic community fosters individual growth by encouraging students to join the many
sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities that are available to meet the needs of everyone. For example, our children participated in varsity sports, intramural sports, clubs, Street Scenes, service projects, and a variety of leadership groups. It was the goal of all the three Swindell boys to follow in their father’s footsteps and become state qualifiers in wrestling at Carmel. This year that goal was realized for them. Over many years of hard work and dedication to the sport, Carmel provided the positive environment to help each of them reach their potential and make that dream come true. They were also challenged academically due to the leveled classes and were able to tailor their course load to meet their specific needs. They knew their teachers and counselors cared about them and wanted them to succeed. Their successes and failures at Carmel have strengthened them as young men and women, who are now able to pass on the individual gifts they have been given along the way. We trust and believe in the teachers and people at Carmel Catholic who influence our children daily. We know that they believe in our children and continually inspire them to be their best and encourage them to love and serve others, and most importantly, God!
