Cardinal Hayes dedicates Academy Wing to Bill McLaughlin '54

On Thursday, 12/12/19 William '54 and Margaret McLaughlin, were joined by Family, Friends, Trustees, Academy Students and Faculty for the Ribbon-Cutting, Dedication, and Father Tierney's Blessing of the Bill McLaughlin '54 Academy Wing. Thanks to the charity of Mr. McLaughlin, our Trustees, and many loyal Hayesmen, our Academy Program is empowered to transform lives through the valuable life-lessons of hard work, tenacity and grit, every day!

Mr. McLaughlin delivered on his own unique tradition of charity by coming to Hayes and holding a student raffle of dozens of laptops, tablets, and other tech. "Ten cents for a ticket. Three for a quarter." Some students even covered the expense of tickets for those who did not have a dime or quarter in their pocket.
