DeBartolo and York families make substantial donation to Cardinal Mooney High School

Published: Thu, July 3, 2014 @ 11:23 a.m.


A substantial donation to Cardinal Mooney High School was announced today at the school. The dollar amount was not released as requested by the donors, Denise DeBartolo York, CMHS class of 1968, and Eddie DeBartolo, class of 1964, and their families.

Bishop George V. Murry of the Diocese of Youngstown and the Rev. Gerald DeLucia, CMHS president, spoke. “This is the largest gift to a Mahoning Valley high school,“ the bishop said.

Father DeLucia emphasized the substantial nature of the financial gift in that it will provide tuition assistance for students and be used for further renovations and updates at the 58-year-old school. The funds are specifically marked for use at the school’s location at 2545 Erie St. in the city.

Hopefully the city can find a way to buy up a bunch of the blight around Mooney and make it a nice campus area.

Excellent points tired. Same ones I`ve been saying for the last two years. Unfortunately many just don`t seem to see the situation for what it is.

With the way the grade schools are closing and the dwindling enrollment in the ones that are still open I give Mooney another 5 years max. By 2019 there will be one Catholic high school in this area.

In all the points made collectively by ytown37, Antiyoungstown (nice name) and tired2, no one considers that some parents will send their children to Mooney because they want their children to have continued exposure to the Catholic faith, or if not Catholic, the Christian faith, and if not Christian, then a school were moral discussion can take place in the classroom, where life has a higher place in the social order than death, and discussions regarding God can take place freely.

By the way tired2, wake up, you do not have a free public school. You have a very expensive public school, Hope the next time you see a parent sending their child to Mooney, or Ursuline or JFK, thank them for not using up the limited resources of public education.
