Patrick Flachs '68 credits CBC high school for providing him the strength and character to be successful as he matriculated to West Point and a career in the military initially, and later in government service. His parents, who did not have a Catholic school education, always wanted him to attend CBC. In fact, he and his wife Lorraine created the Walter J. and Catherine A. Flachs Scholarship for public service aspirants to honor them for their commitment to a CBC education. "I owe my parents a great debt of gratitude for making sure that they provided the greatest gateway to the rest of my life."

Pat is pleased by what CBC is today. "I have been impressed, coming back, to see how I think CBC has evolved to an even better institution than I attended." Lorraine shares Pat's enthusiasm for Today's CBC. "After seeing the pride and emotions that happen here, I can see it's getting better year after year." He is also proud that his closest friends are his CBC classmates. "When they say brothers for life, they mean it."
"It is important to understand that you have an opportunity to create a legacy…create a memory for yourself, your family and at in institution that is, in my view, on the rise, and to ensure that it continues in that upward trajectory." Pat and Lorraine stand behind their words of support for CBC. They have included CBC high school as a beneficiary in their trust and will create and endow the Patrick M. Flachs and Lorraine P. Flachs Scholarship with the proceeds.
