the generosity of individual, corporate and foundation
benefactors makes it possible for Central Catholic to educate
hundreds of students every year and fulfill its mission.
Donations in the 2006-2007 fiscal year helped offset
operating costs, provide financial assistance, make building
improvements and enhance academic and extracurricular
programs. none of this would be possible without the annual
gifts of so many alumni, parents, community leaders and
friends who give at the President’s Circle level.
Students Darren M. Berrigan ’08 and Christine
M. Blain ’08 spoke to guests about the benefits of a Central
Catholic education. Musical entertainment was provided by
Matthew J. Joyal ’08 on the piano and Ryan W.
Schmidt ’08 on the guitar. Br. Rene D. Roy, FMS, ’59,
President, and John F. Shaw III, Chairman of the Board of
Directors, thanked all those in attendance for their loyalty and
gifts to Central Catholic and its students.
