From the Howley Family Foundation
OH – Saint Joseph Academy has received one of its most significant gifts in the
school’s 122-year history. Thanks to the generosity of the Howley Family
Foundation’s one million dollar gift, completion of a major renovation and
infrastructure upgrade is becoming a reality.
this significant gift, Saint Joseph Academy has raised more than $5 million for
its $7.8 million Expanding Minds ~ Building Futures ~ Raising
Leaders capital campaign. The goal of the campaign is to expand the school’s
cafeteria into a multipurpose space and improve the 84-year old building’s
infrastructure. The Academy broke ground for the first phase of the project on
March 19, 2012.
"We are so grateful to Lorie and Nick Howley for this transformational
gift,” said Mary Ann Corrigan-Davis, Saint Joseph Academy President and a
graduate of the school. "Their
generosity will benefit future generations of young women being educated in the
tradition of the Sisters of the Congregation of St. Joseph.”
"One of the primary missions of our
foundation is to provide parents with good options for their children’s
education,” explained Lorie Howley, Executive
Director of the Howley Family Foundation and a Saint Joseph Academy
board member. "We support schools that provide both a great education and a
strong value system. Nick and I see Saint
as uniquely effective in these areas,” she continued. "The young women of Saint Joseph Academy are the next generation of
leaders for our community and the world.
