Arrupe Jesuit High School will honor one of its founders and longtime supporters at its annual Magis Night dinner gala Feb. 2.

Arrupe is an innovative Catholic school for economically disadvantaged youth living in Denver’s inner-city neighborhoods. Every year it honors a recipient whom strives for the magis (meaning “more” in Latin) by seeking to do more in the service of God and neighbor, a Jesuit tradition.
According to a statement released by Arrupe, Campbell has demonstrated unique leadership and commitment to Catholic education for disadvantaged students since it opened in 2003. He’s also maintained a 10-year partnership with the school’s Corporate Work Study Program.
