Golisano helps arrange financing of Bishop Kearney
Irondequoit, N.Y. -- Bishop Kearney High School, one of four Catholic high schools left in the city of Rochester, was saved from an unstable future with the help of Tom Golisano Tuesday.
Golisano arranged the financing of $3.4 million so the school could purchase the property it sits on, according to Kearney President Tom O'Neil.
The school, which sits on Kings Highway in Irondequoit, was founded by the Christian Brothers in 1964.
The Christian Brothers have since gone bankrupt, which birthed rumors the school would have to close.
Bishop Kearney Board Chairman Mark Battle said that the board has been dedicated to saving the school for the last four years.
