Join the Awesome Bear Society - Alumni Class Challenge!
We're working to enhance and expand the athletic and recreational complex on campus, but we can't do it without your help! Whether you were the first or the most recent graduating class, you have all made an impact on Maranacook's history. Now, the Awesome Bear Society invites you to leave your mark permanently for future generations of Black Bears to remember your legacy.
The first phase of this capital campaign consists of enhancing and expanding the concession courtyard, the project will cost $200,000 to complete. We want to make sure each class is memorialized in the concession courtyard with their class year etched on a stone tile in the entrance to the complex. We've already started raising funds from the community to make this happen, but we're counting on the past graduating classes to help us raise $107,500 to push us closer to our goal.
In Maranacook's history, there have been 43 graduating classes of roughly 100 students per class. This means that for just $25 a student, you could be part of ensuring your class's legacy in the concession courtyard.
The class of 1980, is already 10% towards their engraved stone! Join in and help make your mark on Maranacook's future!
