FORT WAYNE — Bishop Luers High School recently celebrated its 31st year of LuersKnight traditions and raised a record $170,000 in the Bishop’s Auction, which will go toward needs-based tuition assistance.
Attendance surpassed last year by over 60 guests with 370 attending, including Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades and Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry. The attendees were first entertained by the Bishop Luers Jazz band followed by the show choir.
Krista Leffers, a 2006 graduate of Bishop Luers High School, was the guest speaker. She attended the University of Indianapolis where she graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s of science degree in biology.
Leffers said, “Bishop Luers’ mission and the values it contains were so instilled in me that just one small part of it has inspired me to alter my life: ‘While serving God and others in a global and changing society, we are all called to serve one another.’ My calling to serve is taking me to Africa with the Peace Corps.”
Leffers’ speech was followed by the Bishop’s Auction which was orchestrated by Bishop Rhoades and master of ceremonies, Jim Fitzpatrick.
