On May 17th, 2014, St. Mary's Catholic School dedicated the new state-of-the-art Abby Sobrato Junior High Building which replaced an obsolete structure that was nearly a half-century old. The dedication occurred one year to the date from the groundbreaking ceremony held on the same site.
We provided multi-camera coverage of the entire dedication ceremony which included a welcome from School Principal, Sister Nicki Thomas, to the hundreds of community members in attendance. She then introduced Abby Sobrato's eldest son, John Matthew Sobrato, who spoke about his late mother's contributions to the St. Mary's community. A blessing from Father Brendan McGuire, Vicar General of the Diocese of San Jose, and St. Mary's pastors, Father Rick Rodini and Father Enzie Lagattuta, and a musical performance from St. Mary's students led by Vice-Principal Lynne Dickerson, concluded the festivities.
We also added titles and music to the piece and produced an edited intro/outro that highlighted the post-ceremony guided tours of the facility. The additional footage highlighted the facility's many new features, including technologically-integrated classrooms, the St. Mary's community library, a triple monitor digital wall and a dedication wall to Mrs. Sobrato and Sister Nicki Thomas.
