MOUNT CARMEL — Mount Carmel Area alumnus and Kansas City Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach recently made a $20,000 donation to his former school district for the Red Tornado weight room, prompting the school board to name the facility “The Veach Weight Room” in his honor during Thursday’s meeting.

Mount Carmel Area Junior High Principal Pete Cheddar, who will become superintendent in July and was a former football teammate of Veach, was grateful for the contribution and thanked the entire Veach family for the donation.
