STM Raises Over $10,000 on Giving Tuesday

December 5, 2018: Supported by the school’s successful Giving Tuesday fundraising campaign, St. Thomas More High School will upgrade the technology in the Jerry Huennekens Gymnasium. Alumni, parents, and other community members donated over $10,000 – with an average gift of $211 – for this technology during the school’s one-day, online fundraiser on November 27.

Technology upgrades in the Jerry Huennekens Gymnasium will include a large, retractable display screen and a high-definition projector. The new projector and screen system will drastically improve the quality of our all-school Masses, assemblies, and community events.

“We are thrilled to add the state-of-the-art visual equipment to the robust sound system in the gym,” principal Nicholas Kelly said. “These improvements will greatly enhance our Mass and assemblies, making the experience more memorable for our students and the community.”

These upgrades will complement other improvements made in recent years in the Jerry Huennekens Gymnasium. Thanks to the support of our donors, including the Majerus Family Foundation, St. Thomas More recently installed a new sound system in the gym and replaced its nearly 50-year-old floor with the new Rick Majerus Court.

“I am overwhelmed by the generosity of our alumni in supporting our Giving Tuesday campaign,” said STM president Mary McIntosh. “They truly care about St. Thomas More and want others to enjoy the same exceptional education and spiritual formation that they received. We are truly blessed!”

This year’s Giving Tuesday campaign represented another opportunity to invest in education at St. Thomas More. In 2016, St. Thomas More transformed the school’s Community Room into a multi-purpose Learning Commons with new furniture; a high-definition Creston projector and 17-foot screen for presentations; two conference rooms equipped with teleconferencing technology, flat screen TVs, large whiteboards; and two small project rooms. Additionally, funded by our 2017 Giving Tuesday campaign, St. Thomas More acquired Smart Boards – large, interactive computers that also operate as whiteboards and projectors for classroom instruction and experimentation – for each of its classrooms.

    The Masters of Iron wall is back at STM! Previously, these records were painted on bricks in the old weight room. The wall was painted during facility upgrades, but the hard work and dedication of our student athletes remains.

    The individuals who earned their names on this wall were able to meet one of more of the following requirements:

    Males: Bench - 200lbs / Squat - 315lbs / Clean - 200lbs
    Females: Bench - 125lbs / Squat - 175lbs / Clean - 125lbs
