Cape Girardeau Public School Foundation

As a 1962 graduate, Rich Kinder has fond memories of Cape Central High School. In 2011, the Kinder Foundation provided a $1 million grant to enhance the school’s auditorium, which was already in the design phase, allowing for the addition of a balcony and other improvements.

The Richard D. Kinder Performance Hall opened in February 2013 as a venue for musical theater, plays, and band performances, as well as award ceremonies, debate competitions and school assemblies.
