A Winning Team
When Cincinnati’s Clark Montessori High School plays its first-ever varsity football game this fall, sport management students in Kristi Sweeney’s Facility and Event Management class will have something to cheer about. Through Xavier’s philanthropy program, they donated $4,000 to the Rudi Johnson Foundation to help fund the program.
The association with Johnson makes the Clark grant perhaps the most visible in the history of the five-year-old philanthropy program, which is fully funded by Cincinnati businessman Roger Grein. The program has provided more than $100,000 in grants to local charities and foundations since 2002.
