A note from Jack Kaelin........

To all my Fellow Cohorts:

Last night at the Garden of Park Hills, one of our own was inducted into the Covington Catholic Hall of Fame – Al Hertsenberg. When you stand back and look at the list of names of those already inducted, the list is awesome, and certainly Al and the four alumni does not “cheapen” that list, in fact it makes it even more outstanding. Welcome Mr. Hertsenberg to the CCH Hall of Fame. I always thought Al was a greater orator and speaker until last night. To hear Brad Wilder, Bill Hentz, David Gronotte and Tony Cento speak, it was a great job by all . They gave high praises of their education, the teachers/coaches and experiences at this school. Today, each of them are very successful family men, fathers, and business leaders. An old-timer like me, even gets re-energized, when I hear these testimonials. Thanks to all of faculty for making CCH the great place that they all praised about last night.

Back to Mr. Hertsenberg. Congratulations Mr. Hertsenberg. He was on his best behavior with his Mom & Dad both there. They are pleasant people. Nothing like Al. A super nice evening.
