Wall of Honor

The newly commissioned KMC Wall of Honor features KMC alumni currently serving in the armed forces - active duty, Guard or Reserve.  We are very proud of our men and women alumni protecting our freedoms and civil liberties, just like our namesake Fr. Emil Kapaun.  This wall is prominently featured in the walkway between the main academic hall of the school and the commons so the students at KMC will pass it every day.  We hope it will be a reminder to all of the sacrifice, pride and legacy of our military alumni.

In future phases of the Wall of Honor, we plan to add recognition for our veterans, living and deceased.  We hope to honor all our alumni who have served in the military, current or past.

Special thanks to Matthew Shibley, KMC current parent and owner of Feghali Furniture and Cabinet Company, and Philip Frangenberg, KMC parent of alumni and owner of Frame Works, for their craftsmanship in creating the wall.
