PARK HILLS, Ky. — Notre Dame Academy announced its new Sister Mary Paul Ann Hanneken and Sister Mary Rachel Nerone Building Fund, introduced in partnership with Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky. The fund seeks to secure resources that ensure the integrity of the local high school’s 60-year-old building and continue to enhance its campus facilities to support 21st-century learning well into the future.
The goal of the Sister Mary Paul Ann Hanneken and Sister Mary Rachel Nerone Building Fund is $3 million and will address the following:
- Learning environments: Technology, lighting, temperature control, furniture
- Safety and security: Cameras, door locks, fire alarm system
- Facility structure and mechanicals: HVAC, roofs
- Athletic facility upgrades: Field lights, restrooms, storage
- Building endowment in perpetuity
The building fund honors Sister Mary Paul Ann Hanneken and Sister Mary Rachel Nerone and their legacy that is defined by their ongoing commitment to a clean, safe and attractive campus through NDA’s very successful work-study program. The fund includes two key components:
- Funding for a multiyear plan to address the facility needs of an aging building and provide for state-of-the-art updates
- A permanent endowment that funds urgent, planned and emergency needs annually but lives into perpetuity
