Pat and Lori Clinch at the Wall of Honor
Pat and Lori Clinch were recognized Friday at the St. Pats-Valentine basketball game as recipients of the “Wall of Honor” award. The award is the highest recognition given to benefactors who have been generous with their time, talents and treasure in behalf of the school and its programs, spokesman Bill McGahan said.
Pat and Lori have been involved in most school projects and activities for nearly 25 years.
Pat was a member of the building committee for Project 2000 - the construction of the new McDaid Elementary school. Pat and Lori were involved in the Project 2000 capital campaign and the current Forward in Faith capital campaign. They have served in the activities association, the parent-teacher organization, the school board and the endowment board. Both have invested volunteer hours in special projects at the school.
McGahan presented the award on behalf of the school.
“Pat and Lori have been ‘go to’ people that we count on for a positive ‘yes’ when there are special needs at the school," he said. "They represent the best of our school supporters and volunteers.”
Pat is a 1976 graduate of St. Patrick’s.
Their sons Jestin, Mickey and Joseph are St. Pat's graduates. Son Cory is currently a student.
