A standing ovation for our EC Family & ENCORE team!
Elyria Catholic High School students, faculty, and staff thank everyone who sponsored ENCORE!, purchased a seat, or made a donation to help renovate our Performing Arts Center. We are grateful to James E. Terrell and all who met his $5,000 matching gift challenge on April 17. We thank Michael '01 & Chelsi Herrick for donating the final $26,029 to help us close the curtain on the funding of this project. In one year, our EC family and the community have teamed up to donate over $420,000 to complete this project and we are grateful to everyone who has helped make our dream a reality.
