"For 25 years, Christian Brothers High School occupied what [was] a multi-use university building including CBU’s flourishing Department of Education. The chief fundraisers for this first CBC Parkway building were Leslie Stratton, Edward F. Barry, Edmund Orgill, Jeff Gros and Mrs. John J. Shea. Kenrick Hall was designed by Regan & Weller Architects; H.B. Hunter served as building engineer."
