The Marshall Family Foundation Gifts $1 Million to Assumption High School.
The Marshall Family Foundation, founders Phillip H. Marshall, Jr., April Marshall, and Deborah Marshall, gifts $1 million to Assumption High School as part of the school’s $8 million Launching the Future Campaign, the largest campaign in the school’s history.
The Marshall Family chose to invest in this expansion and renovation project because of their strong belief in the importance of Assumption High School’s commitment to developing each student as a whole person in mind, body and spirit. The foundation’s mission is to promote, support and improve the Louisville community through philanthropic gestures with a primary focus on local charities. Their gift will allow for an array of additional resources with lasting benefits for the success of young women in today’s world.
Kylie Marshall-Bohn ’10, daughter of April Marshall, shared, “My alma mater instilled in me the importance of faith, compassion, integrity, and excellence which prepared me for the future and enabled me to achieve my goals successfully. The curriculum at Assumption goes way beyond textbook. I learned to be a more spiritual young woman, and I came to recognize the importance of compassion for helping others in our community. Our family is proud and blessed to be a part of the future successes of young women at Assumption and the exponential effect this will have in their lives.”
Launching the Future of Assumption High School went public in June, 2020. The $8 million campaign includes $6 million for the campus expansion and $2 million for growth in the school’s endowment. With $2 million left to raise, the Marshall Family urges others to consider donating to help complete the campaign.
“We are deeply grateful for the generosity and vision of the Marshall Family for the profound influence this gift will have on the future of Assumption High School. Their investment and trust in our mission of educating young women will touch students today and for many generations to come,” stated Mary Lang, President of Assumption High School.
The expansion project will transform the campus of Assumption High School into one of the region’s preeminent educational institutions. Building on the rich legacy of the school, the newly designed facilities will add nearly 35,000 square feet of space including a new main entrance, lobby, cafeteria, kitchen, administrative offices, chapel as well as ten new instructional classrooms.
This, in turn, will pave the way for significant renovations in the current school building, including a new and expanded Learning Differences Center as well as more science classrooms and labs, a new center for visual arts, and designated space to accommodate the school’s growing engineering curriculum and aviation program. This expansion and additional renovations are slated to be completed in the fall of 2021.
“I am so happy I chose to go to Assumption for my high school experience,” said Sidney Marshall-Skaggs ’23, daughter of Deborah Marshall. “My teachers challenge me every day, and my fellow students have become my second family. I can’t wait to use the knowledge and skills I am now gaining at Assumption to become the best version of myself. I know I will succeed and have a bright future as a strong, successful woman. I am excited to be here during the construction and I look forward to experiencing it when it is complete.”
