The Centennial Campaign Executive Committee

The Centennial Campaign Executive Committee (CCEC) was formed to serve as the primary voice for the school’s Centennial Campaign. CCEC members cultivate relationships with parents, alumni, grandparents, companies, and foundations and support Graded by fostering a culture of giving. We are thankful for their extraordinary dedication and passion. It is only with the participation of all stakeholders that Graded can reach its goals and achieve its vision for the future.
