The Marquette Catholic High School Capital Campaign receieve a shot in the arm recently when a donor who wants to remain nameless donated a half-million to the fund. The campaign was launched a little over a year ago, with a goal of $3-million to upgrade infrastructure and the educational experience.
Marquette Principal Mike Slaughter says they've spent much of the summer watching improvements and upgrades thanks to that capital campaign that has already raised almost $2-million. New electrical, new phones, updated technology in the classroom, a new security system, new desks and lockers, and tuck pointing are the highlights.
Slaughter says the continued fundraising activities will hopefully one day result in air conditioning for the gymasium and cafeteria, new restrooms, and an alumni hall. New windows for the building built in 1958 have been ordered, and will be installed in the spring.
