Mary Ellen Carmel has been a longtime supporter of
Midview Athletics. In the fall of 1981 when her son Rich was a
sophomore on the Middie football team, she began a fourteen year stint
with the Booster Club starting as treasurer. She was responsible for
keeping track of the club’s finances and handled disbursements for
various Booster Club sponsored activities. She was also in charge of
the athletic programs for many years, doing everything from soliciting
ads to assembling the programs. Her booster club activities included
any duties that required time and hard work, which she gladly gave.
Her career with the Booster Club went well beyond the graduation of
Rich and daughters Maureen and Karen. She has been a friend to
coaches, administration and all those connected with the Midview
Just as her devotion to the Midview Boosters went
well beyond the normal commitment, one needs only to look at Mary
Ellen’s chosen vocation as an employee of the Lorain County Board of
Mental Retardation to understand her need to help and support others.
A twenty-five year employee of the board, her duties are to help
people with special needs to work to their fullest potential.
Mary Ellen Carmel has always been a giving person
and the Midview Athletic Hall of Fame is proud to give her our
“Special Recognition Award” for a job well done.
