Roosevelt Foundation launches $3.2M fundraising campaign to enhance facilities
The Theodore Roosevelt High School Foundation plans to formally announce its $3.2 million fundraising campaign, Roosevelt for Generations, at this evening’s Rider Pride basketball game at the school. The campaign, which has been in the silent phase for the last several months, has already raised more than $3 million – 96% – toward the $3.2 million goal. Roosevelt for Generations will support two major initiatives: a new track and synthetic turf field, and a new multimedia center. The campaign is driven by a volunteer committee of 22 community members and chaired by parent Brian Gentry, alumna Laura Leonard and parent Jackie Norris. “We want every student at TRHS to walk tall and proud knowing that their community invested in them and that we believe in their potential,” Norris said. The campaign will continue through June, with plans to update the track and field this summer and the multimedia center in the summer of 2023. To learn more, visit the campaign website.
