Jesuit High School receives $1.1 million anonymous donation

TAMPA — Jesuit High School received a $1.1 million anonymous donation on Friday, its 60th anniversary, the school said in a news release.

The donation to the private, all-male Catholic school came from an almunus of the class of 1960.

The money will go toward the $35 million 'For Greater Glory' capital campaign, the school's strategic plan to create a sustainable financial aid program, update facilities and expand academic offerings.

The plan, which was unveiled in September, prompted a $2.5 million donation from Ted Couch, class of 1954, at the President's Dinner, according to the release.

In March, the school received another $1 million donation from Ray and Kathy Hyer, longtime benefactors of the school.

The master plan for the school includes multiple phases, with the first set to break ground this summer at the campus on Himes Avenue.

Phase one of the project will include building a new chapel and a new administration building.
