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.

If the conversation again goes to moving the school, we'll have an idea of the amount contributed.

Probably not going to have to worry about the school moving. With the whole Lumen Christi fiasco, many catholic school parents are not sending their children to these feeder schools of Mooney. These families are in the suburbs and it is unlikely that once you send you child to a public elementary/jr high school that you would send them to Mooney for high school. Also, open enrollment with the public schools will add to this decline in Catholic School enrollment. Only those families wishing to escape poor performing districts (Y-town) will go to Mooney and the dwindling hard core Mooney lovers. The majority of those that will benefit from tuition assistance will not be from local catholic parishes. As this occurs the question becomes why am I going to pay well over $7000/yr to go to this school with few Catholics when I have a free public school that can educate them as well for free?

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.
