Cape Girardeau Public Schools 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 high school auditorium, which was already in the design phase, allowing for the addition of a balcony and a total of 1,000 seats.

The Richard D. Kinder Performance Hall opened in February 2013 and is complete with orchestra pits, state of the art lighting and acoustical systems allowing for a wide range of performances.
