Covington Catholic to dedicate Zembrodt STEM and Fine Arts Center, Drees Student and Alumni Center

Covington Catholic High School will celebrate newly completed campus additions which include the Anthony R. Zembrodt STEM and Fine Arts Center and the Drees Student and Alumni Center with a dedication on Sunday, August 25 and an open house for the public from 3 p.m.-5 p.m.

These $5.72 million additions provide two STEM labs, a 200-person auditorium, new offices for the advancement and athletic departments, a new Spirit Shop as well as an addition to allow students a place to interact before and after school and to host alumni gatherings.

The STEM and Fine Arts Center and the Student and Alumni Center complete an overall $10 million “Bright Minds…Bright Future: A Blueprint for Success” capital campaign that began in 2013 and included over 700 donors.

The campaign also funded the Yung Family Tennis Complex (completed and dedicated in the spring of 2016) and Dennis Griffin Football Stadium (completed and dedicated in the fall of 2017).

The STEM and Fine Arts Center will be dedicated to St. Joseph the Worker with a plaque that reads, “Consecrate your work to the Lord, and he will cultivate it to bear great fruit” in addition to a St. Joseph the Worker statue sculpted in Italy

This dedication to St. Joseph will help Covington Catholic to integrate faith and morals into STEM education in order to form young men as they face difficult ethical choices in their future.

Covington Catholic High School is a 2016 Blue Ribbon of Excellence award-winning college preparatory high school located in Park Hills, and operates within the Catholic Diocese of Covington.
