Alumni and friends of St. Bernard have enhanced the looks of the dormitories at St. Bernard Prep in Cullman through their benevolence with the Summer Improvement Campaign. School President, Fr. Marcus Voss, OSB reported the campaign has allowed several enhancements to be made in both dorm facilities on campus. Resident students at St. Bernard Prep will find many surprises when arriving on campus Sunday to begin the 2010-11 academic years.
The girl’s dorm received new light fixtures, mattresses, and showers while three administrative offices in the Administration Building were restored, as well as the basement floor.
In addition to new mattresses, Benedict East (boy’s dorm) received a number of enhancements as well. All wooden floors were restored, and the beds refinished.
Both dorm recreation rooms received new furniture and 42” flat screen televisions. “Seeing students enjoying their new home environment at St. Bernard Prep is important to us,” Voss said. “Our alumni support through the Summer Improvement Campaign and community support of our Bloomin’ Festival has been a blessing to the program.”
Fr. Marcus said restoration of three administrative offices in the Administration Building have been made as well. The school will be moving toward advances in the technology field soon by placing smart boards in the middle school and high school.
St. Bernard is expecting more than 120 students to enroll in the high school and 36 students for the middle school. St. Bernard Prep is a day and boarding school for students in grades 7-12.
