Celebrating 50 Years of Perseverance and Pride in Excellence at Reuther!

$715 of $2,750 raised

Hello! My name is Mrs. Darga!  

I am the principal at Reuther Middle School. The Crusader community is seeking your help to purchase a showcase that will protect and preserve our tradition of excellence. This showcase will house a historic portrait of our school’s namesake and community leader, Walter Reuther. It will be prominently displayed in the main lobby of our school and will also feature students who have earned the Walter P. Reuther Award through the years!

 This is my proposal’s compelling why…                 

As we celebrate Reuther Middle School’s 50th anniversary, we hope to preserve and honor our tradition of excellence.

Each May, we select two eighth-grade students to receive the Walter P. Reuther Award for scholarship, character and service during their middle school years. Members of the Reuther family continue to attend this annual event and keep this legacy of leadership alive in our community.

A portrait of Walter Reuther was gifted to the school decades ago. Attached is a newspaper article describing the original dedication of this portrait and its significance to our learning community.

We hope to add a permanent showcase display for all Reuther visitors to recognize our historical place in Rochester Community Schools.
