The Catholic Education Foundation set and achieved a “miracle” fundraising goal of $1 million at their annual Salute to Catholic School Alumni dinner. One of the honorees was St. Martha’s very own Richard S. Buehner.
Richard has worked in marketing, manufacturing and business development and has helped thousands of people “think about God.”
He graduated from St. Martha and St. Xavier High schools. He was a quarterback at St. X and twice named to the All-State Team and received Adidas, All Catholic and Parade Magazine All-American awards.
At the University of Notre Dame, he was a member of the Irish team that won the 1977 National Championship. He completed his bachelor’s and an M.B.A. at the University of Kentucky.
In 1999, he joined Louisville Lamp as its president, and the company has since enjoyed a 10-fold growth in sales. He has served as a member of the St. Xavier Alumni Board and was named to the school’s Hall of Honors in 1988.
In 2004, he co-founded TAG (“Think About God”), a non-profit organization that encourages people to make God a part of their lives with a daily email, called “TAGlines.” More than 100,000 people in 44 countries receive the daily email.
