Game on! Catholic school will use big gift for esports

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) – A Catholic school in suburban Detroit said it will use a $1.3 million gift to enhance its science and technology programs, including esports.

The money for St. Frances Cabrini in Allen Park is coming from the estate of two late members of the parish, Don and Dolores King.

The Rev. Tim Birney says the esports room is finished, and other projects soon will be underway. Cabrini is among just a handful of Detroit-area Catholic schools to have an esports program.

The school is completely remodeling biology labs and adding more interactive technology.
