John Bapst Senior Night Football Game

John Bapst thrives and grows in no small part through the support of our family and friends. At the John Bapst Senior Night Football Game on October 5, the generosity of Nickerson & O’Day, Inc. was recognized.

The following text was read during the game’s halftime ceremony. Once again, many thanks to Karl Ward, CEO of Nickerson & O’Day, Inc.

“Ladies and gentlemen, at this time please turn your attention to midfield and welcome Mr. Karl Ward, CEO of Nickerson & O’Day and Maine State Representative, along with John Bapst Head of School Mel MacKay and Development Director Airlia Britt.

This summer, Nickerson & O’Day, one of Maine’s leading contractors, donated and installed – at no cost to the school – two massive arch replacement windows in the chemistry lab of John Bapst. The value of each of these historically accurate windows is over $20,000.

Tonight we salute Nickerson & O’Day not only for their amazing generosity, but also as the contractor selected by the John Bapst Board of Trustees to build the school’s new gym and fitness center.

Nickerson & O’Day: since 1955, one of Maine’s leading businesses and a great partner to John Bapst Memorial High School.

You can do your own part in helping the new gym and fitness center a reality… Give generously and help us turn the Love That School campaign into a beautiful new facility.

Thank you!”
