McNicholas Military


McNicholas Military Memorial

Archbishop McNicholas High School recognizes the service to our country that many of our graduates have given over the years. We enjoy our freedom because so many have made a sacrifice to protect us. Let us always remember to thank our active service men and women and our veterans who have given so much.

In 2008, a group of volunteers from the McNicholas community came together to turn a long-discussed concept into a reality. The idea was to honor all McNicholas alumni who have served in the Armed Forces, and to pay special tribute to five graduates who gave their lives in the line of duty. The McNicholas Memorial Committee was formed with members consisting of McNicholas alumni and family members of the deceased soldiers.

Over the next year and a half, the committee met regularly to share design ideas, source materials and contractors and raise all the necessary funds to complete the project. Dances were held, engraved brick pavers were sold and donations were requested to raise approximately $50,000 for the project. The memorial was dedicated on May 15, 2009 and honors Marty Mugavin ('65), Greg Iding ('65), Joe Berning ('69), Chuck Kiser ('85), and Nick Erdy ('02). Gwyn Bush and David Cooper ('78) spoke at the dedication.

Since that time, other improvements such as expanded landscaping, lighting, and benches have been added.

The Military Memorial Committee remains an active part of McNicholas High School with its new focus of providing scholarships for incoming freshmen. Anyone interested in joining the committee, please contact Jim Hay at (513) 236-7609 on
