Model of perseverance
Joe Carmichael, history teacher and disciplinarian at St. Augustine Preparatory School, Richland, is pictured with senior Matt Oakley of Egg Harbor Township, who spearheaded The Perseverance Scholarship. Dedicated to Carmichael, it will be awarded yearly to a senior who, like the man who inspired it, lives the Augustinian values of truth, unity and love. Matt noted that Carmichael’s dedication to his students did not waver even last April when his wife Jean died. “During the most personally challenging time of his life he continued to bring the same level of excellence and enthusiasm in the classroom that he has for the past 30 years,” he said. Carmichael has worked at St. Augustine since 1984.
