CRANFORD, NJ – Last year, Cranford High School’s Class of 2017 Project Graduation went above and beyond in their fundraising efforts, creating a surplus of $5,000.
Last week, the surplus was donated back to CHS to improve the school’s overall learning environment.
“The unbelievable dedication and drive that the Project Graduation Class of 2017 showed in fundraising was prodigious,” CHS principal Mark Cantagallo said. “Each and every year the parents of Cranford High School come together to provide a spectacular event for our students. It is my honor and pleasure to work for such a community that is so willing to give back to their school.”
The Class of 2017 Project Graduation was spearheaded by chair Jackie Carr McDermott and treasurer Liz Dalli.
“The parents and family members were incredibly supportive, for that we are so grateful,” McDermott said. “Our project graduation team created a whole new and innovative array of fundraisers that were quite successful. As a result, the class of 2017 had some remaining additional funds to be donated in their name to Cranford High School.”
