|Maine Central Institute (MCI) Headmaster, Christopher J. Hopkins has announced a recent gift of property to the school. The gift was made by the Quint family of Pittsfield. The property is adjacent to the MCI campus.
“This generous gift expands our beautiful campus and opens up some exciting ways we can develop new programs to further enhance the offerings we provide to MCI students. The MCI community is very grateful to the Quint family,” said Hopkins.
The gift was made, Hopkins noted, during MCI’s Founders Campaign. Since the Campaign was announced at the reunion on Friday, August 5th, $516,884 has been contributed by alumni and friends. To date, 85 donors have contributed $4.225 million to the Campaign.
The $6.5 million Founders Campaign is the largest fundraising effort in MCI’s history, and is also the School’s first comprehensive campaign, supporting academics, the arts, athletics and the endowment.
“The MCI Board of Trustees is grateful to the Quint family for this generous gift,” said Norbert Young Jr., President of the Board and member of the Class of 1966. “Support by alumni and friends during the Founders Campaign strengthens MCI. This gift demonstrates the outstanding commitment of a family with deep ties to MCI. We proudly acknowledge their support.”
