CBU Launches $70 Million Capital Campaign

deal_school
Representatives of Christian Brothers University announced the public launch of a $70 million capital campaign on June 23 in Spain Auditorium. “Faith in Progress: The Campaign for Advancing Education” now stands as the largest campaign in the history of Memphis’ oldest university. To date, over $30 million of the campaign goal has been secured. The endeavor reflects the University’s vision for the future through elevated programming, improved facilities, an increased endowment, and more powerful outreach.

“At CBU, we teach daily to ‘enter to learn and leave to serve,’” said Dr. John Smarrelli, the first layman to serve as president of Christian Brothers University. “Through this campaign, we can deliver more opportunities to our students and the greater community.”

Capital improvements include the Student and Community Life Center, which will welcome students, alumni, and the Memphis community through the Central Avenue entrance of campus. Construction of the Rosa Deal School of Arts (pictured above), enabled by a legacy gift from CBU’s first female faculty member, breaks ground this summer following reclamation efforts of the School of Arts’ previous location, Kenrick Hall. Over 20 program enhancements combine CBU’s heritage of rigorous and relevant education with the Mid-South’s resources and opportunities.

For more information regarding programs, renderings, and the campaign as a whole, visit cbu.edu/faithinprogress.

 

Kenrick Hall: A Fond Farewell

second_line
The CBU Community of alumni, faculty, staff, and students came together on May 23 for a picnic and a rousing second line funeral march led by the CBHS Band to celebrate and bid a fond farewell to Kendrick Hall, the first building constructed on the Parkway campus 75 years ago. Celebrants were allowed a final tour of the building, which is currently being demolished to make way for the new Rosa Deal of Arts building (see above). Many took away items from the classrooms, attic, and open lockers as keepsakes. (More photos are available at the CBU Flickr site >>)

Many items and architectural features have been salvaged and will be repurposed. Craftsman and arborist Terran Arwood of Woodland Tree Service is collecting the building’s wood materials, as well as two large tulip poplar trees that were removed from the front of the building, to recycle into furniture and keepsakes. These will be made available later online to alumni and others who wish to purchase their own little piece of Kendrick Hall.


The building’s iconic cupola was painstakingly removed and preserved on June 15 by Grinder, Taber & Grinder Inc., who managed to support and lift the large copper structure from the Kendrick roof in one piece. Also removed and saved were two large concrete crosses from the roof, a large concrete Signum Fidei crest from the front facade, and the building’s cornerstone.

The Kenrick Memory Project is a collaborative public history project to preserve the history of one of CBU’s oldest buildings and to help build the community culture of CBU. Many of CBU’s stakeholders have vivid memories of their time in Kenrick Hall, and this multimedia project hopes to preserve those memories and the artifacts associated with them and to present them to the current and future CBU community. This project has multiple components. The project team is interested in collecting as many individual memories related to Kenrick as possible. Alumni, trustees, faculty, staff, and current students are invited to add to the project by visiting www.kenrickmemoryproject.org.

WATOTO CHILDREN’S CHOIR: Our neighbors at Lindenwood Christian Church will host the Watoto Children’s Choir on Friday, March 20, performing their new production “Oh, What Love” in Stauffer Hall at 7:00 p.m. Based on the Bible verse, 1 John 3:1, “See what kind of love the father has given us, that
we should be called children of God, and so we are,” the production is a unique worship experience. Underscored with the original sounds and rhythms of Africa, it blends traditional and modern dance. Watoto Children’s Choirs have travelled internationally since 1994 as advocates for the estimated 50 million children in Africa, orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, war, poverty and disease.

President John Smarrelli, Steve Crisman (Senior VP for Advancement) and Bob Arnold (Director of Grants & Foundations) were in Washington, DC last week meeting with Tennessee legislators in Congress. Pictured above (counter-clockwise from top) with Senators Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker; with Congressman Steve Cohen; and posing for a #smarrelliselfie in front of the Capitol building.

KWFF-Day-of-Service
The Kemmons Wilson Family Foundation hosted a service event for their scholarship recipients on February 3 at the Soup Kitchen of St. John’s United Methodist Church. KWFF Scholars from CBU, Rhodes College, the University of Memphis, and Memphis Theological Seminary participated. Pictured above in the foreground are Brody Lax (Engineering Physics ’16) and Marie Ryall (Natural Science ’16).

deca-fbla15The CBU School of Business hosted the regional FBLA and DECA conferences on January 29-30 at CBU. This was the third year to host DECA and second to host FBLA. These conferences bring nearly 800 students to the CBU campus for two full days of using our facilities and interacting with student leaders from the School of Business. This year was by far the most challenging year, due to the preparations for the renovation of Kenrick Hall. Special thanks are due to Ray Karasek (Administration & Finance) for his efforts in preparing Kendrick and other facilities for these large gatherings, Christina Brown (School of Business) for serving as the communications and organizational hub of the entire process, and the brothers of Delta Sigma Pi for many hours of physical labor preparing Kenrick for occupancy and two full days of work during the conferences.

emerging-leaders
Twenty-five CBU students participated in the first Emerging Leaders Seminar on February 5 in the Canale Arena Skybox, where they learned about how to be impactful leaders on-campus and in the community by meeting with Memphis leaders and Teach for America Corps members. This session was created through a partnership between Student Life and Teach for America.
