St. Henry District High School is excited to announce the official groundbreaking ceremony for their “Building on Excellence, Guided by Faith” capital campaign building project, the first major building campaign for the school in more than 20 years.
The ceremony will take place on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. on the campus of St. Henry District High School at 3755 Scheben Drive, Erlanger, KY 41018.
