MARIETTA—St. Joseph School in Marietta helped furnish the new Jesuit high school, Cristo Rey Atlanta, by donating 58 practically unused lockers.
The lockers, formerly in the school gymnasium locker rooms, were installed as part of a building construction in 2004. They were intended for use by sports teams for weekend basketball and volleyball games, but in the 10 years since their installation they got little use.
Nick Gentile, of Cristo Rey Atlanta, visited the St. Joseph campus on Aug. 8 to collect the donation and was said to be thrilled the lockers were in such excellent shape.
Cristo Rey Atlanta is located in midtown Atlanta at 680 West Peachtree Street and opened with its inaugural freshman class in August. Its mission is to educate young people from Atlanta of limited economic means with a rigorous college preparatory curriculum combined with a work-study experience made available by corporate and community partners.
