A Schemel Legacy: The Engineer and the Monk

Dr. Christopher Schemel and Brother Mario Joseph Schemel, two of Father George Schemel SJ’s nephews, will explore his influence on their life work. Chris heads his own consulting firm and is one of the world’s leading experts on fires and explosions. Br. Mario, after 15 years in industry and 15 years in academia, has been a Trappist monk for the past ten years. The brothers will describe the influence that Father George had on them in their respective callings.
