He then earned his master’s degree in theology from St. Meinrad Seminary. Mr. Hamilton has taught for 15 years in the Archdiocesan Catholic school system, 14 years of which was at Bethlehem High School in Bardstown, Ky. During that time, he has been a campus minister, an assistant director of the theater program, sponsor of the Respect Life Club, and sponsor of the Film Appreciation Society. His greatest achievement (and blessing), however, is being married to his wife, Sara, with whom he has had five amazing boys.
