VOCATION CORNER “There’s a deep satisfaction knowing that you’re doing what God made you to do on this Earth.”
John Knochelmann ‘42
Alex McCullough ‘05
Fr. Goebbel saw a spark in young John Knochelmannthe undeniable spark of curiosity and talent present in a future Latin School student. It was 1939, and times were tough. The United States was coming out of a depression, and extra money was not easy to come by for the Knochelmann family. Private school tuition was likely the last thing on their minds. But Fr. Goebbel would not allow John’s talent to go untapped, and made the committment that it would be financially possible for him to attend Latin School. It was a gift that John never forgot and never took for granted. He always saw his Latin School education as something to be proud of; an accomplishment that made him hold his head higher. He also understood that the community depended on the leadership that a CLS education provides, and wanted to do his part to give back.
Although the seeds of interest in religious life were planted early on, it wasn’t until he graduated from college and spent time teaching that Father Alex McCullough truly accepted his vocation.The privilege of leading the Pontifical Servers at Latin School served as an opportunity for Fr. McCullough to develop a sense of the daily life of a priest and allowed for more time spent with the Blessed Sacrament in the Cathedral. “Presence in front of God opens your heart to the possibilities of what he might be asking you to do,” he said.
Kris Knochelmann ’87, one of John’s nine children, says that his father didn’t consider himself to be top of his class, but appreciated that CLS gave him the love of learning, curiosity and work ethic that never stopped until his death in May 2016. As a lifelong learner, he was not satisfied with his undergraduate degree from Xavier University, and obtained additional licensing in HVAC and drafting. He continued to quench his thirst for knowledge by taking computer programming and dance lessons with Pat, his wife of 42 years. Above all, John was humbled to receive a Latin School education. As one of the founders of the Academic Advancement Fund, John worked tirelessly to make the gift he received be available to others. He understood the core value of the school that financial circumstances should never be an obstacle to receiving a Latin School education. His legacy at Latin School will last for years for years to come.
As a Theology student and baseball player at Christendom College, he planned to move back home to teach religion and coach baseball. During his time as a teacher, Fr. McCullough realized through his stewardship and passion for teaching the love of God in his students, that he was being called to do more. He started attending daily Mass and going to Confession more frequently. Fr. McCullough began to feel the need to give back to the church in return for the incredible gifts of forgiveness and reconciliation that he had been given. It was at this point that he entered the seminary. Fr. McCullough never looked back, and as a recently ordained priest, serving as the Parochial Vicar at St. Ignatius Loyola Parish in Cincinnati, his enthusiasm for religious life is palpable, “There are so many incredible doors that open up when you embrace the vocation”, he says. He credits CLS for exposing religious vocations as attainable and realistic options to students like himself who may be interested. Having been ordained into the priesthood in May of 2016, Fr. McCullough’s most cherished moments are celebrating Mass and administering the sacrament of Reconciliation. For him, the opportunity to bring the forgiveness of God is a deeply humbling experience. “No matter what God calls you to, you will be happiest doing that,” he says. Fr. McCullough’s hope is to help facilitate the realization of God’s purpose in others — regardless of what passion they have in life — so that they too may experience the overwhelming joy of living as God intended. 6
HONORING THE VISION advanced boys, and thus created CLS as an adaptation of the European “gymnasium” model of acceleration in order to meet this need. During the school’s humble beginnings, all sixth graders in the Diocese of Covington were required to take the entrance examination. Not all students met the requirements for entrance, but those who did well were invited to attend. As Bishop Howard said, “Schools of this character are limited in the number of those who attend, as not all will qualify to take the Latin course.” Thus, the school was small by design from the beginning, and invitation to attend has always been a badge of honor. Bishop Howard had a specific type of student in mind when he created the school. Students were not required to be brilliant or genius, but were required to work diligently and rigorously in order to excel. The school continues to attract such students to this day. While raw intellectual talent is required to make it through the doors, a commitment to excellence and a drive to succeed and persevere is necessary to leave with diploma in hand. Covington Latin School provides an undoubtedly unique education that is not available anywhere else in the area. Well into its ninth decade of continuous operation, the school has equipped hundreds of students with an exemplary foundation in the areas of academic, spiritual, and human formation. In many ways, the values that are held most dearly by Latin School students and alumni can be traced back to one man: Bishop Francis W. Howard, founder of CLS. This article looks at the vision he cast 93 years ago, how it has endured throughout the generations, and the promise it holds for future students and families. On July 15, 1923 Bishop Francis W. Howard was installed as the as the fifth Bishop for the Diocese of Covington. Always the advocate of education, it was only two months later that he founded Covington Latin School. He saw a gap in the landscape of academic offerings for academically 7
Another key ingredient to making Latin School a renowned instituition is the faculty. Bishop Howard had a two step process in the selection and formation of his faculty - find a good teacher and then let him teach. And that he did. With a profound respect for the role of educator and an awareness of the great responsibility inherent in the profession, Bishop Howard selected the entire faculty himself in the school’s first year. Faculty members have been no less carefully selected through the years; 19 of the 21 current Latin School teachers have advanced or terminal degrees, and the average faculty member has 16 years of teaching experience. Combine these two elements - highly-motivated and eager students with teachers who have fine tuned their craft - and the results are astonishing. In an interplay of excellence, students are encouraged by faculty and staff to move beyond
preconceived limitations, and advance to another level of greatness. From this comes the third building block of Latin School: the emphasis on the formation of leaders. In 1923, Bishop Howard cast a vision that Latin School would form well-rounded leaders to serve and benefit the community. Bishop Howard intentionally wanted to create an environment that would forge leaders for various roles in life. As new waves of alumni emerged, and began to hold an increasing number of leadership roles in politics, business, law, medicine, education, and within the Church, it became apparent that the recipe inspired by Bishop Howard worked. Today, Latin School works diligently to instill the qualities that create leaders, always informed by the proper integration of goodness, discipline, and knowledge. A final hallmark established by Bishop Howard is the emphasis on being the perennial servant of its time. Latin School was created to fill a need, and the Bishop never wanted it to stagnate saying, “Education becomes stereotyped, formal, and inefficient if there is not room for experiment and no incentive for initiative”. With a solid foundation of tradition aimed at producing leaders, Covington Latin School also remains a perennial “servant of its time”, and continues to adapt and evolve to meet the unique needs of each generation of students. And what evolutions there have been! From the integration of athletics and lay men and women teachers to the introduction of the co-educational model and the prep year, the school carries on the tradition of maintaining a balance between making necessary changes while adhering to a rigorous, classical, and accelerated education within the traditions of the Catholic faith. What does all of this mean for the 2016-2017 school year? In many ways, it means that nothing will change at all. In other ways, each day will provide more insight into how the faculty and staff can best deliver the value proposition of Latin School to its current population. Whatever happens, the school will continue to honor the vision of Bishop Howard in an unwavering pursuit of goodness, discipline, and knowledge.
FINANCIAL SUMMARY 2015 - 2016 FISCAL YEAR Covington Latin School’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. During the 2015-2016 fiscal year, Latin School showed slight gains as compared to the previous year (not including the principal debt payments for the building expansion and renovation). As of June 30th, the debt balance was $5,413,782.85. Latin School paid $ 276,913.48 for debt principal payments for the 15-16 fiscal year.
DONOR SPOTLIGHT GARY CUMMINS 1966
As a member of the only class in Latin School history to have their senior prom canceled due to mischievous behavior, Gary Cummins ’66 looked back on his time at CLS as formative yet fun. “We had some real characters…,” Gary reminisced with a laugh. Despite causing the instructors a few headaches, the class of 1966 went on to become a successful group of professionals later on in life, and Gary Cummins is no exception.

After having graduated from Thomas More College, Gary went on to graduate school at Case Western Reserve University and then to work as an engineer for Rockwell International which later was sold to the Boeing Corporation. Gary also spent time working in programming, telecommunications, finance, and information technology. He credits CLS for giving him the foundation he needed to be successful in multiple fields, “I attribute a lot of that to the background that I got from Latin School.” Gary felt that because of the educational and ethical groundwork laid during his time at Covington Latin, he owed much of his success to his formative years at the school. Teachers such as Sister Evangelista and Father Heile were very influential in his development. For this reason, CLS was his first choice when making the decision to give back. Gary
didn’t just want to make a donation, he wanted to play an active role in the decision making process about how the funds were used. This led to the creation of the Gary Cummins Scholarship. “I wanted something that was ongoing and not just one time,” Gary said. The Gary Cummins Scholarship is awarded on an annual basis to a select number of students based on grades, service work, financial need, and the sincere desire to be a part of the Latin School community: all criteria set forth by Gary himself. An ongoing scholarship is a unique and personal way to give back while simultaneously getting to know the students whose lives are directly impacted by a gift. As for Gary, he currently enjoys his retirement, and spends his free time doing Ballroom Dancing and training his dogs to compete in agility, obedience, and confirmation trials.

WAYS TO GIVE Covington Latin School is grateful for the irreplaceable support of our donors. From gifts to the Academic Advancement Fund to the creation of a named scholarship or a planned gift, there are multiple avenues to express your generosity to and your partnership with Latin School.

DEFINE YOUR LEGACY THROUGH A PLANNED GIFT The Bishop Francis William Howard Legacy Society, named in honor of the founder of Covington Latin School, recognizes benefactors who have remembered the School through their estate plan. Your planned gift helps to strengthen Latin Schoolâ€™s long-term financial health, ensuring we remain a vibrant place of learning now and in the future. What are the benefits of planned giving? From bequests and charitable trusts, to life income arrangements and outright gifts of appreciated assets, planned gifts can help meet your individual needs based on your age, financial goals and assets while helping Covington Latin at the same time. Weâ€™re here to help. To take the first steps toward creating your Covington Latin School legacy, please contact the Advancement Office at 859.291.7044 or email@example.com.
