Scecina's Campus Crusade: A fun day for a great cause

By Principal Joe Brettnacher, Ph.D.

Dear Parents, 

What a great day last Friday for Scecina’s Campus Crusade day! It was my first experience with the Crusade. Allow me to share with you our goal progress, where the money is going, and student field events, and also recognize those who helped to organize the fun day. 

Campus Crusade encompassed a walk-a-thon to raise money. This year the school set a goal to raise $13,000. I am pleased to inform you that as of May 10, we have raised $11,720. We are so close to reaching our goal.  The junior class has won the class participation competition and will get a pizza lunch.

As a reminder, the money raised goes toward tuition assistance, academics, care of campus, student life (clubs and athletics) or campus ministry, and a $1,000 charitable donation this year to Catholic Relief Services of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. It is gratifying to know that the money raised will help our students, the school, and the community.

During the day, students participated in field events. The events included a scooter race, dodgeball, musical chairs, walk-a-thon, water kickball, tug-a-war, and a dance office. Our students had a blast. The classes competed against each other to determine an overall winner. The seniors won the field event competition.

Mr. Kurt Guldner, Mr. Mark Paras, and senior leaders (Isabelle Leffler, Libby Joson, Molly Griffin, Jack Wright, Cobie Dillard, Monica Higgins, and DeChelle Turner), helped to plan the field events. President Joe Therber, Mrs. Beth Murphy, Mr. Bob Globish, Ms. Gia Spaulding and Ms. Mandy Crandell worked on the campaign materials and finances. The faculty and staff supervised the events, and we had a cookout for lunch. The day seemed to go off without a hitch, and the students had fun!

If you have yet to donate to this cause and want to help us reach our goal, please send your donation to Mrs. Beth Murphy. Rumor has it that President Therber will spend the night on the school’s roof if we reach our goal.  Have a great weekend!
