Nearly two decades ago, John McLaughlin and several Capital Group colleagues founded an Adopt-A-School program with SulRossMiddle School that continues to this day. Now, a newly renovated library, expanded to serve the growing student population, was renamed to honor John for his support while he was General Manager of Capital Group’s San Antonio office and, in his retirement.
Students and faculty, plus former and current Capital Group associates, gathered to celebrate both the opening of the newly renovated library and the longtime partnership between Capital Group and its adopted school.
Capital Group associates volunteer in many aspects of Sul Ross Middle School by:
- sending 1,000 “survival” packs to students during testing week
- mentoring students
- facilitating intramural sports programs
- holding food and supply drives to benefit the Sul Ross community
- sponsoring events that expose students to the arts
- awarding scholarships
The library dedication made clear that the partnership between the Capital Group and Sul Ross will continue to make a difference in the lives of the students, faculty and Capital Group associates for many years to come.
