Once A Mustang

About the Once A Mustang Monument
In 2013, work began on a monument which would welcome all visitors to the Salesian campus and reflect the spirit of all alumni. The monument is a gift to Salesian High School on behalf of every graduating class since 1962. 
Renowned sculptor and Salesian alumnus, Dan Medina '86, has created the stunning 18' monument which will be installed on the school's plaza level.

 

All donations that exceed the costs associated with this project, including plaques purchased after the installation date, will be used for the school's student scholarship program.
