uggs nordstrom 1 million to University Liggett School
A pair of University Liggett School graduates who donated $1 million to the Grosse Pointe Woods based school will have a gymnasium named in their honor.
H. Richard Fruehauf Jr. and his wife, Janet Fruehauf, recently made the gift to support the school community s Sure Foundations capital campaign.
In recognition of the donation, the gymnasium at Liggett s state of the art athletics complex will be named in after them, according to a news release.
We feel very fortunate to be part of the University of Liggett School community and are honored to contribute to the continued success of students attending our fine school, H. Richard Fruehauf Jr., a 1948 graduate, said in the release.
Considering all of the influence and pressures affecting the lives of our young people today, University Liggett School is a positive and encouraging voice.
University Liggett School spokeswoman Michelle Franzen Martin said the generous gift demonstrates the family s longtime commitment and dedication to the school and its mission.
In addition to the couple both being alumni of the school s predecessor institutions, all five of their children attended University Liggett School. The couple is parents and grandparents of University of Liggett School alumni and the grandparents of current students. They also both served on the school s board of trustees.
University Liggett School is in the first phase of a two phase athletics project that will climax with the construction of a new athletics complex adjacent to McCann Ice Arena in the area of Cook Road and Mack Avenue.
The first phase involves realigning and rebuilding the existing athletic fields, while the second portion will include the athletic complex along with a series of streetscape improvements to enhance the property s aesthetics.
Janet Fruehauf, a 1950 grad, encourages other University Liggett Schools alumni to consider also supporting the educational facility.
The University Liggett School provides a firm foundation for students and this important investment in the campus and community is most worthy of all of our support, she said in the release.
