Martin Mehall of Bay Village has been honored with the William E. Reichard Award for oustanding service on the Magnificat High School Board of Directors. He recently retired from the board after nine years of service. He is only the third board member to receive this award.

Mehall became involved with Magnificat while his daughter Marissa, who graduated in 2002, attended Magnificat. He was a long-standing member of the finance committee and was instrumental in bond financing.

“Marty really epitomizes what you hope to find in a board member," said P. Kelly Tompkins, chairperson of the Magnificat Board of Directors. "He understood intimately the business side of the school, but more importantly, he embraced and supported Magnificat’s mission. In every way, Marty gave of his ‘time, talent and treasure’ during his tenure as a director, and has continued to graciously offer his sage counsel, which is most appreciated. In short, Magnificat is in a better place because of Marty.”

Mehall lives in Bay Village with his wife, Berta. In addition to daughter, Marissa, they have a son, Brent.

The William E. Reichard Award for Outstanding Board Service was named for Bill Reichard, who retired from the Magnificat High School board in 2008, after 21 years of service. The award’s criteria includes: exemplary support for Magnificat’s Catholic mission and the Humility of Mary Charism, outstanding committee leadership and exceptional fulfillment of director’s responsibilities as delineated in the Corporation’s Code of Regulations.
