WHY YOUR SUPPORT OF MARAUDER FEST MATTERS

Join our school community this year in supporting the Clearwater Central Catholic High School Marauder Fest 2022 – CENTRAL CAMPUS CARNIVAL.  This socially responsible event will be held on campus showcasing the newly constructed building.  The evening will feature progressive dining with food trucks, games, and fantastic silent and live auctions.

This year, more than ever, your support of CCC is critical not only for the academic, spiritual and personal growth of our students, but for the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff as well. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an increasing number of CCC families have requested tuition assistance and in greater amounts than ever before—more than $500,000 this year!

Our families are grateful for the opportunity for their children to return to on-campus learning and our students are thriving in our safe and healthy environment. For too many students, this opportunity for a CCC education would not be possible without the generous support of our Marauder Fest family and business sponsors and underwriters. Proceeds from this annual event directly support tuition assistance for students like Schafer.

Prior to attending Catholic school, I attended a public school and experienced first-hand the effects that a non-nurturing environment could have.   I was a target of bullying over an aspect of my life that I couldn’t control and this bullying wrecked my confidence, ultimately tainting my self-worth.

In my nurturing Catholic school environment, I was exposed to opportunities such as religion class, campus retreats and prayer which strengthened my faith in God while building back my self-worth.  In particular, the teachers at CCC not only provided me with academic knowledge to succeed, but they embodied true care and compassion.  They encouraged me to engage with my peers and participate in group activities. I felt confident to become a student ambassador sharing my love for CCC, participated in student council, joined sports teams and ultimately led as president of CCC’s Entrepreneurship Club.

As a recent CCC graduate reflecting back on my small, bullied, insecure self, I am so thankful that I was provided the ultimate gift to receive a Catholic education.  The experiences gained from my Catholic education will continue to shape me as I move forward to my college community.  I know that I will continue to learn, love and value service while striving to make a lasting impact in this world.
