On Wednesday, July 31st, President Dan Hodes, trustees, administrators, donors, and friends of Spellman gathered on Potvin Field for the official groundbreaking on the installation of the school's first artificial turf field. The project is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2019. The 2.2 million dollar project is part of an overall four million dollar campaign.
The breaking of new ground comes with the launch of Spellman's first-ever Comprehensive Campaign, "Rooted. Growing. Thriving.", an initiative to increase funding for the school's endowment in support of student access and new fields for the athletics program.
"This campaign is a celebration of where we have been, our roots, and a recognition of the challenges we currently face in order to continue to grow, and finally it is a declaration of a bright future ahead!" said President Hodes.
