McGahan, Wm. C.
This paper describes some of the author's experiences in financing and building a new $4 million Catholic elementary school facility and activities center in rural North Platte (Nebraska). Important points that lead to successful school building projects are highlighted and include establishing good relationships with all the stakeholders involved, developing a clear and well-substantiated need, selecting a quality building committee, selecting a quality architect in whom the entire community has confidence, and hiring a proven firm to lead the capital campaign effort. Good communication with all parties is stressed as key to all phases of the process. (GR)
