Class of '62 Endowment
Class of 1962
Scholarship Student Aid Endowment Fund
Our 50th Reunion Class Committee is writing to ask you to join us in establishing a unique fund for students on financial aid at St Louis U. High. We seek to raise $250,000 for endowment, the proceeds of which may be used by the School’s administration to meet the reasonable, outside of, beyond tuition needs for scholarship students, with special emphasis on minority boys enrolled at SLUH. Our Class gift is a stand alone endeavor and not part of any other fundraising at The High School. We are equally excited to note that a few classmates have already made some advance gifts totaling over $45,000.
On learning of our gift intent, SLUH Principal, Dr John Moran observed,
“I am so grateful to the Class of ’62 for your efforts in regards to helping our students who have financial needs beyond tuition. I’m proud to be the Principal of a School that can say we accept young men based on their ability to succeed, not on their families’ ability to pay. However, in accepting students whose families have financial need, we also must make sure we can deliver the same quality experience to them that all our students receive. They cannot become second class citizens in their own School, and this means not just have the books and school supplies to get through the academic day, but the fees to play lacrosse, the School ring to wear proudly, and the tuxedo in which to graduate. Some may call these ‘extras,’ but as alums I hope you understand that the Jr. Bill experience wouldn’t be complete without them. So thank you once again for this unique idea, and for your financial support of it. Both are greatly appreciated.”
Our Committee of eight will initially reach out to a pre-selected group of classmates. They, in turn, will each take a number of others to contact, and will ask for participation in our 50th Reunion Scholarship Student Aid Endowment Campaign. Let’s aim for 100% participation to show our individual and our Class’s appreciation for the privilege of our SLUH education, and to enhance that same experience for the young men that succeed us there now. Many thanks.
