I hope everyone is enjoying the summer break and getting some deserved rest and relaxation.
Work on a couple of exciting and important summer projects is well underway for the benefit of the Scecina experience for all our students, staff and visitors.
The full-scale library renovation is underway and will result in a transformed technology-rich, college preparatory learning and meeting space for our students and community groups. We also soon will begin replacing and repairing sidewalks around the perimeter of the school.
Looking even further ahead, Scecina recently presented our Exploration, Discovery, and Financial Feasibility Study Report regarding the next phase of our educational and facility improvements to the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. The report and consultant recommendations reflected input from a variety of sources, including more than 130 personal interviews and mailed surveys. Scecina’s Board of Directors and administration are now in forward-looking conversations with the archdiocese about Scecina future.
Lastly, I want to thank all who participated in or were sponsors for the Alumni Golf Classic that was held June 17 at West Chase Golf Club in Brownsburg. This was the first year the Classic was played at West Chase, owned by Scecina alumni Rick ’69 and Patti (Nonte) Smith '71. The Classic, besides being a fun time for Scecina alumni and friends, funds the annual Kenneth R. Leffler Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to an incoming senior who excels in academics and leadership and is the child or grandchild of a Scecina alumnus. The scholarship also reflects the values Mr. Leffler encouraged as a teacher, coach, and friend. This year’s recipient is Will Ferree (pictured above with Coach Ott Hurrle). Congratulations, Will!
Enjoy the rest of your summer; please look for more library transformation updates; and may peace be with you and your families!
