St. Joseph High School- New Athletic Facility
After a successful capital campaign to build the new St. Joseph High School, there remained a need for funding to construct a football stadium and surrounding athletic facilities to complete the project. With a well-known interest in educational initiatives, this represented the type of long-term, sustainable project the Foundation wanted to support.
The Foundation agreed to provide both the initial grant, as well as a later matching grant, to complete construction of the full-size turf field, nine-lane track, bleachers and adjacent concession stands and team rooms. Leighton Stadium opened in 2012.
