Wall of Fame Class of 2008

Mr. Nicholas Nemesh served as an English teacher at MMI from 1958 until his retirement in 1991. He also taught Latin and Typing. Mr. Nemesh was much beloved by his students and colleagues for his intellect and wit and he ensured that his students graduated with excellent communication skills. Mr. Nemesh was known for offering “collegiate level” English courses providing his students with an excellent foundation in the essentials of grammar and theme writing. He is also remembered for his wonderful sense of humor. He served as adviser to the school newspaper, MMI Flashes, and as director of MMI’s drama presentations with the challenge of presenting plays with a “boys only” cast for many years. Mr. Nemesh served his country during World War II and, afterward, continued his education by earning his master’s degree from the University of Notre Dame. He is described by one of his nominators as “the consummate professional”. The nominator goes on to say that Mr. Nemesh “epitomized the private school educator – in his speech, demeanor, dress and love of education . . . He thoroughly enjoyed classroom discussion, using the literature of his English courses to promote the free exchange of ideas.”
