"We are deeply grateful to the alumni, businesses and families who have launched this campaign with significant gifts that get us to almost 75% of our goal, and we are now asking our community, local employers and businesses to put us over the top.  We know that Morse has the most active alumni association in the country; we know how much our community benefits from the graduates of Morse and the BRCTC and how generous the citizens of our school district have been.  We look forward to their participation in this final phase of our successful effort to enhance academic programs, the theater, and the athletic facilities beyond what the taxpayers have already approved to continue the excellence of the learning experience for decades to come," said Dr. Manuel, Superintendent of the RSU 1 School District. 

Dr. Manuel serves on the fundraising team which is co-chaired by Bill and Sally Haggett, Dr. Glenn Cummings and John Morse IV.  Leadership gifts for this campaign have been received by the Haggetts, John Morse and the Class of 1963, Bath Savings Institution, First Federal Savings, the Parker Family and the Davenport Foundation.

The RSU 1 Education Foundation is the sponsor of the capital campaign, as well as the Morse High Music Association, the Odyssey of the Mind program, and the Bath High School Alumni Association Senior Tea event.  For more information about the Foundation, contact Bill Racine, CPA, Treasurer at
