The John Carroll School receives $80,000 grant for tech upgrades

The John Carroll School in Bel Air was awarded an $80,000 grant by the Marion I. & Henry J. Knott Foundation following a competitive application and review process. The grant will support investments and technology upgrades in the recently renovated auditorium to enhance performing arts and academic programing, according to a news release from the school.

The Catholic high school will acquire new main stage speakers, an amplifier, a complete wireless microphone system and LED lighting. These investments will provide enhanced capabilities for the performing arts students and improve the experience of the audience, the release said.

“John Carroll is extremely grateful to the Knott Foundation for its support of our performing arts and very talented students on the stage, behind the scenes and in the audience,” School President Stephen DiBiago said in a statement. “The generosity of the foundation enables us to continue to provide and host memorable experiences and growth opportunities for our students, families and guests.”

The John Carroll School was also awarded a $30,000 grant by the Knott Foundation in 2021 to support its physics curriculum and robotics program.

Founded in 1977, the Marion I. and Henry J. Knott Foundation is a Catholic family foundation committed to honoring its founders’ legacy of generosity to strengthen the community within the Archdiocese of Baltimore, according to the release.
