PAOLA - There's a reason why Robert Grabill, president and CEO of Chief Executive Network, is up to his eyeballs in an effort to raise funds to renovate the Ursuline Sisters' motherhouse here.
He's doing it for his hero, Sister Rita Redmond.
Sister Rita, now retired at age 70, taught Grabill in grades 3 to 6 at the St. Patrick/Holy Trinity School during the late 1950s and early 1960s.
In those busy, post-war baby boom days, classrooms were crowded.Sister Rita (then known as Sister de Lourdes) taught three grades in one room.That required preparing 15 lesson plans every school day.Nevertheless, Grabill remembers her being perpetually cheerful.
"I don't ever remember her feeling sorry for herself, or sensing she had that big of a workload," said Grabill, now a resident of Lawrence and a member of Corpus Christi Parish.
...
"That's the way they lived their lives, with total selflessness, " said Grabill.
...
That's why Grabill is helping with a soon-to-be-launched capital campaign to raise $3.5 million for a much-needed renovation.This is the first big fundraiser the Sisters have conducted in their 107-year history, said Grabill.
