Thank You Supporters!

We had a great turnout and we gratefully raised more than $78,000 in overall donations. Your attendance and support played an important role in our event’s success—thank you.


During the Fund-the-Need campaign, over $42,000 was raised for the future CHS Manufacturing Pathways program. All contributions will help the robust CHS program acquire important manufacturing equipment getting Centennial seniors trained and ready for a high-paying career in high-growth, high-demand manufacturing occupations.


The program is in the beginning stages and will be a joint effort of ISD12, several manufacturing companies, and donors. During the summer, CHS made classroom updates and also purchased equipment such as Press Brake, Metal Sher, and Welders. CHS will continue add to the program. We appreciate your support!

Our sincere thanks to YOU for a wonderful event!
