St. Hubert High School last week cut the ribbon on its new Connelly Arts and Design Center.
Former Channel 3 news personality Pat Ciarrocchi, a St. Hubert board member, was the emcee.
The Rev. Patrick Welsh, pastor at St. Matthew, offered a prayer.
Lizanne Pando, St. Hubert president, thanked her board, the Office of Catholic Education and the Connelly Foundation for helping to transform a former dilapidated space into a bright, open area.
St. Hubert principal Gina MacKenzie was in attendance, along with former principals Joanne Walls (also a former president) and Gerry Laskowski.
Others on hand included Fran Burns, executive vice president of the Connelly Foundation; Councilman Mike Driscoll and his chief of staff, Tom Forkin; and Braden Bonner, St. Hubert board chairman.
Bonner, the board chairman, said the center opens, not only a door, but “a world of possibilities.”
“You can grow your God-given talents without limits,” he said. ••
