President's Club | Celebrating 20 Years
The SMHS President’s Club was established in 2001 by the late Joseph Crane and his wife, Helen, for the purpose of raising funds to be used at the discretion of the President. We are forever grateful to the President’s Club Founding Committee, whose support has been strong and steadfast since its inception.
Our Founding Committee was compiled of the following:
Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Barkett Mr. & Mrs. Dean Janssen
Mr. & Mrs. Gregory Basso Mr. & Mrs. Charles Patmon
Mr & Mrs. John Butorac Mr. & Mrs. Frank Raspo
Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Crane Mr. & Mrs. Gerald Shipman
During the past COVID 2020 year, the President’s Club raised over $64,000 from new and current memberships. We would like to offer our sincere thanks to all of you who continued to support the President’s Club during these difficult economic times. Those funds allowed us to purchase and employ the tools needed for our faculty to continue to offer an exceptional educational experience for our students. Our purchases included special video cameras and microphones, extra monitors and special memberships in video-conferencing platforms such as Zoom as well as wi-fi enhancements to our school’s campus.
The President’s Club proceeds are instrumental in keeping Saint Mary’s competitive by making necessary improvements and purchases that fall outside of the school’s annual operating budget. Memberships ensure our ability to support important projects that better our school, help our students and keep us on the forefront of providing the best Catholic education possible.
Some of the planned projects to better the student experience relies on your generosity to the President’s Club. This year, we are planning to continue the remodeling of the classrooms which includes paint, window and cabinet replacement, plumbing upgrades, new flooring and branding the rooms with our Catholic values.
To inquire about membership, please call Nanette Mussi, Alumni and Parent Relations Coordinator, at (209) 957-3340, X197.
