On Friday, Oct. 6, the Class of 1982 presented Brother Anthony Baginski, FSC, Principal, with a class gift of $65,000 during Central Catholic’s home football game vs. Butler, for the newly-created Central Catholic Leadership Fund. The purpose of the Leadership Fund is to support and enhance existing and new leadership development initiatives.
“Our goal in fundraising for The Leadership Fund was to ensure that Central Catholic is able to excel in creating the future leaders of tomorrow,” said Barry Hutchison, ’82. “Our class is excited to lead the way and we hope other classes will join us in this important effort.”
In addition to supporting current student programming including Student Council, Lasallian Ministry and My Brother’s Keeper, the Leadership Fund will make an impact on growing and developing the Dignity & Respect Campaign, new to Central Catholic this school year.
Spearheaded by Central Catholic’s Cultural Inclusion Advisers, the Dignity & Respect Campaign is a program that furthers the development of a community of thoughtful and compassionate individuals - two key components of a Lasallian school. At the heart of the approach is the core belief that everyone wants to be treated with dignity and respect both at Central Catholic and the broader community.
“The Class of 1982 has shown great insight and commitment to current and future Central Catholic students by their commitment to develop leaders in our school and future leaders in our communities,” said Brother Anthony Baginski, FSC, Principal. “The support of our alumni is imperative to Central Catholic's continued success, and I am delighted by the support from the Class of 1982 to first develop self-discipline in our students, and then for these students to grow into caring and compassionate leaders.”
Since the initial check presentation on October 6, the fund has grown to $75,000. To support the Central Catholic Leadership Fund, please contact Brandon Haburjak, Director of Alumni Relations for more information on ways to give.
