Members of Bishop David High School’s class of 1968 recently donated more than $90,000 to Holy Cross High School.

The money was raised in honor of the class’ 55th reunion, celebrated at the end of September with an event at Churchill Downs.

The funds have been used to establish an endowed scholarship in memory of J. Bryan Smith, a member of the class of 1968, and a scholarship in memory of Father John Caskey, according to the school.

Bishop David, an all-boys school, was open from 1960 to 1984. It closed after the 1983-84 school year and merged with the nearby Angela Merici High School for girls to form the co-ed Holy Cross High on the Bishop David site, 5144 Dixie Highway.
