Athletics Field Dedication Ceremony 6-8-13 Panther Project Dedication Ceremony

Patrons and supporters of the Athletics Field Renovation Project and The Germano Challenge gathered for an intimate celebration over Reunion Weekend as the College unveiled the new stadium seats. 


As part of the Moving Forward Capital Campaign, the College broke ground last summer for Phase 1 of a  two-phased $2.5 million athletics track and field. As part of the fundraising campaign for this project, alumni and trustee Geno Germano '83 and wife Theresa '86, made a very significant commitment to the project and challenged their fellow alumni to help them "fill the seats." To date more than 70 of the 80 seats available have been secured and named through the generosity of ACPHS alumni, families, and friends. 


The College looks to complete Phase 2 of the project in 2013-2014. For ways to support email, visit or call 518.694.7393.

Thank you again for your generous contributions. If you haven't already seen this new space and would like to, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 518.694.7393.
