Casey Cavell’s talk at the Concordia Lutheran High School Alumni Awards reception where he received the Neale M. Shank Award. June 1st, 2019.
Casey Cavell, a 2003 graduate and business leader, is being awarded the Neale M. Shank Award. The Neale M. Shank Award, named in honor of an alumnus who died while serving in Iraq, honors those younger than 40 who have made significant contributions to their given career, community, church or the high school.
Cavell has owned more than a dozen businesses in a variety of fields: retail centers, apartment complexes, self-storage facilities, a furniture company, a restaurant, and five baseball and softball academies among others. His specialty is to purchase and transform underperforming businesses as well as helping local entrepreneurs achieve their potential. Because of this passion, he founded Legacy 4:12.
After leaving Concordia, he began his college career at Goshen College but continued at Purdue University with a communication major while earning a real estate license. He chose to start a real estate business rather than finishing his degree.
Along with serving in his career, he also serves in his community with Fellowship of Christian Athletes and his local church. He and his wife Konstance currently live in Atlanta.
