Ernest J. Timperman

Ernie Timperman, Elder class of 1945, has a soft spot in his heart for Elder.  He transferred to Elder his freshman year from Holy Cross High School in Latonia, KY and just recalls having an uplifting experience.  He enjoyed math and felt that the teachers at Elder prepared him well going into a demanding engineering program at UC.  Fr. Charles Schreibeis and Fr. Paul Kappes in particular were two math teachers with whom Ernie respected greatly.  Their command of the subjects they taught while maintaining a high level of discipline made them stand out amongst the other faculty members at that time.  Ernie and his wife Phyllis live in the Bridgetown area and Ernie created his scholarship in August of 2007.
