    A 1974 graduate of the College of the Holy Cross and his wife have given the school its largest single donation in school history, a $32.5 million gift that will be used to enhance the student recreational experience on the Worcester campus.

    The gift from John Luth and Dr. Joanne Chouinard-Luth announced Tuesday came in response to the challenge of an anonymous donor who promised to bump a $15 million gift by an additional $5 million if the school raised $60 million by September to expand and renovate its athletics center and convert its field house into a state-of-the-art recreation center.

    John Luth is the CEO and chairman of Seabury Group, a global advisory and investment company specializing in aviation and aerospace.

    Luth called his time at the Jesuit school "transformational."
