Fitness Center Dedication
Immaculate High School revealed its new Fitness Center at a dedication ceremony. The Center is part of the school’s initiative to expand its health and wellness programs for all students. Equipped with stationary bikes, low impact treadmills, training bench, ellipticals, rowing machines, mirrors, TV monitors and more, the Fitness Center will serve as a place for students to work individually with a trainer, workout with coaches and during some PE classes.
The Fitness Center project was designed and created by parents of alumni, Michael Basile, Anthony Rizzo, Jr. and Ross Rizzo and alumnus Ed Kilian III ‘99. “They found an unused space in the school and converted it into a state-of-the-art facility for our students”, says Athletic Director Nelson Mingachos. The dedication of the Fitness Center was made to the Basile Family, Edward Killian III and the Rizzo Families for their stewardship as well as to Clancy Moving & Logistics, Earthmovers Inc., Enhance A Colour, F&M Electric, NY-CONN Corporation, Rizzo Companies, Silent Watchman, The Summit at Danbury, David Sousa Plumbing & Heating and Wilshire Real Estate Advisors for donating their time and talent to complete the project.
As part of the ribbon-cutting dedication program, Monsignor Robert E. Weiss, Pastor of St. Rose of Lima Church, led with an invocation followed by a blessing of the facility. Chairman of the Board David Cappiello and School President Mary Maloney unveiled the dedication plaque and shared their appreciation of the almost twelve months of hard work by a collaborative and innovative team who were able to transform a vision into a reality.
The opening date of the Fitness Center will be determined by CDC school guidelines. Principal Wendy Neil expressed her thanks to all involved in getting this project completed for all students.
Nine Immaculate High School seniors signed their official Letters of Intent to continue their athletic journeys at the collegiate level. “Congratulations to you and your parents… now is when the real work begins,” said Athletic Director Nelson Mingachos as he addressed the students and their parents gathered in the school gym. Signing Day was held in two groups to properly space all participating and allow students to invite their families to come and celebrate with them.
