Dear Friends:

It’s an honor to serve as Chairman of the Foundation Board and a pleasure to share our good news with you.  Here’s a recap of great things that happened in Fiscal Year 2012, which ended June 30, 2012:

  • - Unrestricted contributions more than doubled from the previous year.
  • - Temporarily restricted contributions  increased 85% from the previous year.
  • - We received an estate gift of more than $300,000.
  • - At Homecoming, the Golden Girls Class of 1963 presented a generous check to the Foundation for over $50,000.

These contributions, along with others, allowed the Foundation to award more than one million dollars in scholarships this year.  Students who might not otherwise be able to afford a college education joined our Long Blue Line because of the generosity of our wonderful donors.  

If you give regularly, thank you.  I hope you’ll continue.  And if you haven’t given lately, please think about it.  Honor a fellow classmate, contribute to your class scholarship fund, or make a donation t o your social club or other group you hold dear.  Consider us when you write your will.  Every dollar helps.

On behalf of the Foundation, I give my heartfelt thanks to all you wonderful donors who make a significant difference in the lives of our students.
