CCSV Honoree Nominations Being Accepted


Many of our honorees from past Celebrating Catholic School Values events tell us they consider their Career Achievement Award the greatest honor of their life. They cherish their award above all others because it represents the values they espouse every day in their lives as a result of their education in Catholic schools.

Please consider nominating individuals whose ethics, leadership, service, and achievements are significant to their parish, school, work and/or civic community. You may nominate men, women, clergy, and religious. Current Catholic school students and employees are not eligible. Criteria and nomination forms can be found on the Office of Catholic Schools website or click HERE

Please return the nomination form by Friday, September 14, 2018 by mail to the address found on the form, by fax at (317) 261-3364 or by e-mail to Joni Ripa at jripa@@archindy.org. Please provide as much information as possible about your nominee(s).  Incomplete forms cannot be considered. Nominees should not be told that they are being nominated. All nominations will be kept confidential unless the person is selected. Honorees will be announced this fall.

Plans are underway for the 2019 Celebrating Catholic School Values: Scholarship and Career Achievement Awards event on Thursday, February 9, 2019 in the Grand Hall of Union Station in Indianapolis. Since 1996 this premier event has showcased the effectiveness of our schools, and honored over 91 servant-leaders for their values and accomplishments.  In addition, the event has raised over $33 million, for program sponsorship and tuition assistance for families in need to allow them to choose Catholic schools for their children. In 2017/18 more than 8,000 of our students received Indiana Choice Scholarships, popularly called vouchers, and another 2,200 students received Indiana Tax Credit Scholarships. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of tax credit scholarships or in sponsorship opportunities for our February event, please contact Kim Pohovey at kpohovey@archindy.org or by calling 317-236-1568, or (800) 382-9836, ext 1568.

Thank you for your support of Catholic education!
