We are sad to announce that Mr. Rick Middleton, a faculty member here at Bishop McNamara from 1986 until 2013, passed away on September 22nd.
Our sincerest condolences go out to his family during this difficult time. Mr. Middleton was an incredibly influential person who made a difference to a great many people. May he rest in peace and know the love of our Lord.
In Lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to the Richard Middleton Project Pride Scholarship at Bishop McNamara High School. You can donate at The Rick Middleton Project PRIDE Scholarship Fund.
Rick was a beloved friend and mentor in the Bishop McNamara High School Community for more than 25 years. He held numerous positions including Faculty Member, Director of Personnel, Director of Student Activities, Director of Discipline, Senior Class Moderator, Social Studies Chair, Guidance Counselor and Administrator from 1986 until his retirement in 2013. Prior to BMHS Rick was a teacher and administrator at Mackin Catholic High School and prior to that he taught in Catholic elementary schools in both Baltimore, MD and District of Columbia.
Rick received the Faculty Caritas Award in 1994. In 2013, Rick received the Holy Cross Caritas Award. Dr. Marco Clark, President/CEO remarked during the ceremony, "Rick is an inspiration and role model not to just students but to everyone he came in contact with. Rick always brought a loving, calm, poised presence to our school community."
Rick had a great love and affection for the Brothers of Holy Cross and established a scholarship in their honor which is being renamed the Richard Middleton Project PRIDE Scholarship.
