Lou was a driving force for Cathedral High School. A beloved member of the Cathedral High
School community, Lou Nevarez shared his gifts whole heartedly through the Alumni
Association and his efforts on behalf of the Annual Scholarship Dinner. He also served two
terms on the Cathedral High School Board of Trustees.
Lou Nevarez was raised in Boyle Heights and attended the local Catholic schools, Assumption
Elementary School and Cathedral High School. He graduated from Cathedral in 1968. While at
Cathedral he participated in athletics and on campus clubs. Many of his classmates became
lifelong friends. His relationships with Assumption and Cathedral continued way beyond his
graduation. He helped raise over $5,000,0000 for students and Catholic education.
Lou loved his family and encouraged his nephews to attend Cathedral, and many of them did.
His impact will forever be felt through the campus and the lives of the students that benefited
from his philanthropic efforts. In honor of Lou Nevarez, consider donating to the Lou Nevarez
