The Marian Catholic High School Alumni Association recently launched its second-year revitalized membership campaign. Through this campaign, the association has contributed more than $25,000 to the school in Hometown as part of its ongoing commitment to assist with financial aid and the operational costs of a Catholic education.

“We continue to be pleasantly surprised by the unrelenting dedication that Marian Catholic alumni have shown toward the school,” said William O’Gurek, Class of ’73, Chairman of the association. “Our membership has grown from 300 in the first year to 445 this year; with 54 graduates serving as representatives of 37 classes. These representatives have diligently worked to update contact information of their classmates. We anticipate that membership will increase substantially as we enter the 2020-2021 school year,” he added.

"When the campaign was launched in 2019, the goal was to make the Alumni Association a legitimate organization whose resources would be a valuable tool in helping to promote Marian Catholic High School,” O’Gurek said. “Since that time, we have re-established a network of alumni from across the country who have indicated they want to play a variety of pivotal roles in helping Marian Catholic thrive,” he stated.
