Calling all CT Alumni! We are so proud of all that you have accomplished since graduation. Please join our registry to reconnect with Conemaugh, and allow us to highlight your achievements.
Check out our previous Alumni of the Month Winners.
For the past 75 years, we have been educating students who’ve used the skills they learned at CTASD to succeed in life. We are very proud of our graduates and want to extend an invitation to them to reconnect with former classmates, network with current and retired professionals, and influence the next generation coming out of Conemaugh.
Each month we will showcase the successes of our alumni by highlighting a different graduate or graduating class. While success looks different in different situations, we want to create an opportunity to acknowledge the thread that ties them all together.
Joseph Kimmel attended Conemaugh Township Area Middle School/High School graduating in 1989. Additionally, he attended St. Francis University, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and Pennsylvania State University for graduate and doctoral work. Mr. Kimmel is also an alumnus of Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania.
Mr. Kimmel found a way to combine education with athletics. He was a letter winner at Juniata for football, wrestling, and track. He chose to continue his athletics career after being offered an opportunity to play American football professionally all over Europe, primarily in Denmark and Sweden. He also played for the first arena football league in Johnstown called The Johnstown Jackals.
When asked about a few of the other things he has accomplished since graduating from Conemaugh Township, Mr. Kimmel commented, “I’ve established a loving family and a successful career as an educator. I can still value the positive experiences I have learned in the classroom led by my teachers and coaches I still hold dear to me today. I was always proud to be an Indian.”
Mr. Kimmel’s favorite educator during his time at Conemaugh Township was Mr. Dave Koba. He says the fact Koba was such a good teacher and even better coach are a few factors that contributed to this opinion.
Some of Mr. Kimmel’s fondest memories from when he attended high school at Conemaugh Township include playing various sports, participating in the school choir, and also spending time with all of his friends.
Kimmel currently serves as the superintendent of Windber High School.
Mr. Kimmel resides in Hooversville, Pennsylvania with his wife, Tara, and his three daughters Taya, Kyra, and Natalie.
