RAY KEMPER SUMMER ACCOMPLISHMENTS BACK TO SCHOOL


A MESSAGE FROM CLS ADVANCEMENT September 2017 Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends, The beginning of a new school year always brings the inevitable excitement for our seniors as they look forward to being the leaders of our student body and the next chapter of their lives. The trepidation of new students, who don’t quite know what to expect as they enter the doors of their new school, is palpable. As an alumnus myself, I remember that feeling very well. While the faces in the halls may change, the spirit and tradition remain steadfast. This year marks our 94th year as an institution that prides itself on tradition and academic excellence. In our 94th year, we have hit an important milestone, our first child of an alumna. We welcome Simon Juelg, son of Matt and Rachel Wilkins Juelg ‘96. Rachel inspired us to implement the new hashtag on our social media platforms, #FollowMyLead. We are proud to feature Rachel and Simon on the cover of this Leader. Isaac Newton once said that he stood on the shoulders of the giants that came before him. This could not be more true of our students. Our alumni are giants in their fields of expertise and we need you in order to continue our tradition of excellence. This year, we will be expanding our Annual Appeal. What once was nearly a year long effort, we are consolidating into a four month campaign. Inside this issue of the Leader, you will find an envelope that will be used for our kickoff to the Annual Appeal. In conversations with multiple alumni over the past six months, they have indicated they would be pleased to see their giving opportunities expanded. Hence, we are providing our benefactors better defined giving opportunities that best memorializes your time at our alma mater. We ask that you prayerfully consider your donation to Latin School even if you haven’t donated in a very long time, please know that every little bit helps. If you are a yearly supporter of the AAF, we ask that you thoughtfully consider increasing your donation. Rest assured that every bit of your donations go to support a student at Latin School who very much appreciates the opportunity. As you know, there is no place like Latin School. You may have noticed that we have been working very hard to engage alumni more than ever before. Our “Meet the Headmaster” evening, coffee hours, and “Elected Official Celebration” were huge successes. We want to continue that this year and expand on it by celebrating what makes Latin School such a unique place. We have plans for alumni athletic events, a Mass for former alumni Pontifical Servers, Fall Football Homecoming: Celebrating 94 Undefeated Seasons, and a CLEF reunion. We have been working all summer to identify those who have participated in these activities. We know we are lacking in some areas and need your help. You will also find enclosed in this Leader, a contact update form. Please mail that back in the Annual Appeal envelope provided (even if you cannot donate at this time). We want to know what you have been up to. This information helps us communicate with you better to ensure that you are invited to all upcoming events. All of these efforts are leading us to our Centennial Celebration that will be coming up in just a few short years. Help us to make us a strong institution for the next century of Latin students.

GO LATIN!

Laura Dressman ‘18 spent a month abroad studying Spanish in Buenos Aires, Argentina. CLS Physics teachers Jeff Finke ‘80 and Scott Syfert both attended the American Association of Physics Teachers High School Summer Camp. Covington Latin was privileged to host this camp for teachers from all over the country. The highlight for our physics teachers was the information regarding the upcoming solar eclipse. Our Latin teacher and Honorary Alumna Kelly Kusch took 20 current students and alumni to the NJCL Convention in Troy, Alabama. She also attended the American Classical Institute in Grand Rapids, Michigan and received a scholarship to attend the Ancient Coin Class at the summer seminar of the American Numismatics Association in Colorado Springs. Sam Latz ‘19 competed in the 2017 AAU Competitive Karate National Tournament in Raleigh, NC, where he won a Gold, two Silvers, and Bronze Medals. He also competed at the AAU Junior Olympic Games and won a Gold and Silver Medal. In June, John Lane took seven students as well as several adult chaperones to tour Great Britain and Ireland. The tour consisted of visits in Dublin, The Ring of Kerry, Edinburgh, London, and Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, Wales. One of the highlights was seeing the Queen during her birthday celebration and the Trooping the Colour Parade. Magnified Giving granted Covington Latin School’s National Honor Society $1500 to invest in their community. The NHS decided to donate $500 to Habitat for Humanity and $1000 to Redwood. Covington Latin was the host of this year’s event, where schools from across the area received their checks.

This summer, Covington Latin’s Enrichment Program for bright students K-12, ExploreMore!, hosted nearly 200 students from around the Greater Cincinnati area. The mission of ExploreMore! is to give the opportunity for bright students to engage in fun, hands-on learning experiences with like-minded peers. This summer’s camp offered classes in everything from chemistry to musical theater, ACT preparation to superhero science. This summer was even more engaging due to the recently formed partnership with Thomas More College. Both schools are committed to educating and engaging the bright minds of the future. ExploreMore! is offered three times a year, November, March, and June. For more information regarding this program or if you are interested in finding ways you can help, please contact Amy Darpel at exploremore@covingtonlatin.org

SCHOOL NEWS Our tradition of starting the school year off with a Latin Mass continued on August 16th followed by a breakfast reception in the Kohlhepp Family Forum. It was fantastic to see so many legacy families and alumni come together to celebrate the Mass. We were fortunate enough to have Bishop Foys visit our classrooms and speak to our students. On August 6th, CLS welcomed its newest families with a barbeque sponsored by the APT. The Covington Latin Science Department sponsored an Eclipse Viewing Party on August 21st. Mr. Scott Syfert held an assembly for the whole school and their families prior to the eclipse. Everyone was moved to the courtyard to view the eclipse. HONORS ASSEMBLY The Fourth Quarter Honors Assembly was held on August 24th. Students achieving honors for last year’s 4th quarter were honored, as well as our spring athletes. We are very proud of our athletes. Thirty-six of our athletes received First Team Academic All State for maintaining a GPA of 3.75 for the course of their season and overall for the year. That is achievement is remarkable. Our volleyball team was awarded the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award for the 2016-17 season. This distinction recognizes teams that maintain at least a 3.30 GPA for the year. Our girls GPA was 3.90! They were also recognized for this same criteria by the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association for the 2017 KVCA Team Academic Award. By the way, their regular season record was 22-10!

RAY KEMPER: A LATIN LEGACY Ray Kemper, Class of 1937, always believed that Covington Latin School provided him the educational foundation that changed his life. After graduation, Ray was faced, as were many at that time, with having to help financially support his family. His college education was put on hold while he worked as a mechanic and in other jobs in support of his family. World War II then called him to serve. In Ray, the US Army saw more potential than most, sending him to OSU and to Philadelphia to study electronics. Subsequently, he served his country repairing radios for the Army Air Corps, spending three years during the war in the Pacific Theater in the Philippines and New Guinea. After the war, Ray wanted nothing more than to marry his sweetheart, Glenna, to start a family, and to finally finish his education. Via the GI Bill, he received his college degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Kentucky. Ray and Glenna had three children, Karen, Deborah, and Keith. While other recent high school graduates struggled with college, Ray excelled due to what he believed to be the foundation of a strong work ethic that was built by Covington Latin School. Ray went on to be the head of Engineering at the Drackett Company where he oversaw the building of their manufacturing plants producing Windex

and other household products all over the country. Subsequently he opened his own engineering firm in Blue Ash. His career was as varied as his hobbies. Ray’s son, Keith, was struck that someone with such a head for electrical and mechanical engineering could also be a brilliant artist and accomplished photographer. His attention to detail was as evident in his mechanical and electrical drawings as it was in his elaborate train set he built Keith. He was always busy building something and always had a project in the works. Ray’s gratitude for his Latin School education never left him and served as the inspiration for a $300,000 gift to his alma mater. He believed that his Latin experience gave him the foundation and work ethic that allowed him to be successful in his career and wanted to leave a legacy so that other bright students could afford the same opportunities. Supporting Covington Latin is something that the Kemper family has always valued. Ray’s brother Lawrence, class of 1943, also was extremely generous in leaving a legacy for the future of Latin School. Their younger brother, Paul is a graduate of the Latin School as well, Class of 1949. Our Latin School community has lost two great examples of men who truly believed in the mission of Latin School. Through Ray’s and Larry’s generosity, the legacy that is Latin School will continue!

A MESSAGE FROM THE HEADMASTER

Dear CLS Family, Friends, and Alumni, Now that my first year as Headmaster has passed, I remain ever-so honored and humbled by the opportunity to lead such a fine institution. Blessed with a strong administrative team and dedicated faculty and staff, we celebrated many successes this past school year. Thirty-eight seniors comprising the Class of 2017 are now the newest additions to our prestigious pool of alumni. These spirited graduates soon begin their next major journey, ready in every way for the challenges of college, travel, and life, in general. Please join me in wishing them well! May all of our alumni remember the motto that guides our efforts at Covington Latin – bonitatem et disciplinam, et scientiam, doce me! The 2017-2018 school year promises even more success, as we continue to grow programming to meet the ever-changing needs of our students. Each year, the goal is to provide the same classical education that has defined us for over 90 years with the most effective methods. A major focus this year is what we proudly call our Whole Child Initiative, which directs more of our energies to the development of the entire individual – the spiritual, the academic, the social, and the emotional. The more well-rounded our students, the more able they are to meet challenges head on, to adapt to changing landscapes, and to collaboratively solve problems. Additionally, by partnering with the NaviGo career and college preparation curriculum, we are better preparing our students to make informed and empowered decisions about college. A CLS education provides one of the most solid educational foundations in the region. This education, coupled with increased emphasis on socio-emotional development, will better shape determined and enthusiastic leaders. This year, our student body has also grown, breaking the five year trend of decreased enrollment. With growth this year, we capitalize on the positive momentum gained from our efforts last year. It can be stated obviously that we hope to continue this trend. Latin School graduates possess all the tools to make the world a dramatically better place; the more graduates we send forth, the more effective we are as an institution of positive change. You – the alumni and benefactors of CLS – can help us in our goal for growth. Please share your experiences with others. Spread the word about the positive mission of your alma mater. Word-of-mouth marketing remains the most powerful vehicle for attention, so do not be shy about the positive impact that Latin School has had on your life. Our financial outlook is also stabilizing. Our facilities are the finest in the area. The recent renovation ensured this, but the remaining debt continues to hinder our efforts to operate the school within our means. This year, we hope to lay the groundwork for a debt reduction campaign that will eliminate our building debt by the 100 year anniversary of Covington Latin School in 2023. If there is one threat to a bright future, it is our building debt. We must continue to focus substantial efforts on the elimination of this debt so that operational monies can be used for student services and instructional support. As we move into the future, your support is needed more than ever. Each gift to Covington Latin – be it time, talent, or treasure – moves our mission forward and impacts future generations of leaders. For decades, CLS has been the school for leadership development. With strong faith and discipline, Latin graduates display character and ethic that encourage them to stand out and to shine. We want to ensure the strength of this mission for decades to come – please consider helping us along the way. Our Annual Appeal will soon begin anew. Some make bold gifts to move our school forward dramatically. Others provide steady gifts, year after year. No matter the gift, it is a blessing for our school and a testament to your appreciation for the mission of Covington Latin School. Simply put, THANK YOU! May God continue to bless you and your family,

Jason Huther Headmaster
