Another weak quarter with not much input from the would be authors out there. So, I thought we would remember a past alumni.
David Doyle '47 RIP February 26, 1997 AKA John Bosley.

We are trying to improve our list about teachers or employees
of Campion who were also alumni. You can check the list in the Notables

Here's a true story about my brother-in-law, Roy Bernard Hovel '35, a star student and a star athlete at Campion in the 1930's.

Super Bowl mania. Green Bay Packers going to Super Bowl Again!
By what stretch of the imagination does Campion have anyting to do

Vince Lombardi would take his team to practice at a remote field.
What field would this be? Well his friend coached at St. Norbert College in
De Pere, WI. So who was this mysterious friend? Coach Mel Nicks. OK, so
why do we care about Coach Mel Nicks at St. Norbert College. Let's turn

in the 1940's to 1950's. So there you have it. A bit of a stretch.
