EUGENE — Marist High School in October dedicated a new turf field in honor of an alumnus nicknamed “Mr. Marist.”

Kevin Teller Field is one of the things paid for with funds from an $8.6 million campaign. The field is lined for football, soccer and lacrosse and has created a year-round outdoor space for physical education.

The 571-student school is past 60 percent of the campaign goal and also broke ground this summer on a new science wing.

Teller, who graduated in 1971, was an athlete and school leader. His family helped pay for the project.

“He exemplified the values we aspire to at Marist,” says a statement from the school.
Teller, who opened a landscaping business in 1974, died of brain cancer in 2011.
