WAUKESHA - Catholic Memorial High School will receive a $75,000 gift from Waukesha State Bank to be used for its Crusading for Excellence campaign, annual Crusader Fund, and annual auction fundraising dinner, according to a CMH press release.

“As always, we are proud to support Catholic Memorial High School, and in particular, the school’s capital campaign, tuition assistance program and annual auction dinner,” said Ty Taylor, the president and CEO of Waukesha State Bank. “The school is a wonderful part of the Waukesha community, providing exceptional education.”

In honor of Waukesha State Bank, CMH dedicated the Valley Field scoreboard to the bank during a blessing and unveiling of the field and scoreboard Thursday.

“Waukesha State Bank has been a valued community partner since 1949, when our school was established,” said the Rev. Paul Hartmann, president of Catholic Memorial High School. “We are grateful for their very generous gift and for their continued commitment to Catholic Memorial High School and to the Greater Waukesha community. This donation will be a significant addition to CMH’s fundraising support and will allow us to provide better services to our students.”

Crusading for Excellence will fund key initiatives outlined in CMH’s strategic plan, Vision 2020. Its student- focused objectives promote the growth and enhancement of the school’s physical building, student body, faculty and staff.

The annual Crusader Fund fills the annual $1 million gap between tuition income and operating expenses. It also supplies most of the tuition assistance grants.
