ELMIRA, NY (WENY) - Notre Dame High School dedicated its auditorium to an alumnus Thursday.
Dick Crossed donated $2 million to the school's Legacy of Caring campaign. The campaign looks to ensure the sustainability of the school while encouraging growth.
The donation is the largest single gift ever given to Notre Dame. School officials say they're grateful for Crossed's generosity.
""It means a hundred million thank you's, because he made it possible for us to do upgrades to the school, to the athletic fields and he is just a wonderful, wonderful benefactor," says Sister Mary Walter Hickey, President of Notre Dame High School.
The Legacy of Caring campaign funds capital projects like major repairs to the school grounds and physical plant.
