Dear Fletcher Memorial Murals Donor,
We are extremely disappointed to inform you of PPS Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero’s decision to remove the Fletcher Memorial Murals from Grant High School. The murals were removed over a six-week period beginning in April and ending in May 2021. None of the money raised by the Grant High School Alumni Association for the restoration of the murals will be used for the removal.
Since we will be unable to restore the murals, you may ask for the return of your donation or consider allowing the Alumni Association to keep all or part of your contribution for Dues, Scholarship Fund, Music Education Fund, or the General Fund. The matching fund contribution from the Leo Lester Browne Charitable Fund stipulated that if excess funds were remaining after the murals were restored that excess funds must be used to enhance the music program at Grant High School. In keeping with the spirit of the Fund, you may also designate that your contribution is used for that purpose. The Leo Lester Browne Charitable Fund contribution of $90,000 has been returned. The remaining $10,000 from the Leo Lester Browne Charitable Fund will be applied to music education.
Thank you for your continued support of the Grant High School Alumni Association and the students.
