Ruth I. Kolpin Rubison Partners with School District for Naming Rights

At a special meeting of the Board of Education held on March 3, Ruth I. Kolpin Rubison was awarded naming rights to a portion of the Carthage R-9 School District’s new early childhood center to be built later this year on East Fairview Avenue. Mrs. Rubison responded to the District’s fundraising campaign by donating $100,000 to acquire naming rights to part of the building which will be called the “Ruth I. Kolpin Rubison Early Childhood Center.”

“We sincerely appreciate Mrs. Rubison stepping forward to partner with us on this project and are overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from the Carthage community,” stated Dr. Blaine Henningsen, Superintendent. “This facility will stand as a tribute to the generosity of Carthage citizens and their love for children.”

The District launched a campaign earlier this year to solicit funding support for the construction of an ECSE / PAT Center. If you would like more information about supporting District projects through naming rights, please contact:
