THANK YOU TO CLASS OF '66 & NANCY MILLS
FOR THE GENEROUS DONATION TO STUART' S EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION! Below is a letter from Nancy Mills to the Foundation. Nancy was vital to her class reunion and class contribution and the STUART EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION BOARD is grateful!
Dear Stuart Educational Foundation:
It is with great pleasure--and more than a little embarrassment due to its tardiness--that I inform you that I today mailed to you by certified mail a number of checks made out to the Foundation totaling $3800. This represents the contributions of many, many members of the JEB Stuart Class of 1966 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of our graduation.
$526.66 of that amount is intended to be earmarked for the Ms.Mask Scholarship; the remainder for the general scholarship fund as you see fit.
In addition to the financial contributors, the following people (some of whose email addresses I have shielded) deserve your special gratitude for enabling this gift:
>> Alums Bridget Breen Whitson and Suzanne Burke Walters who facilitated the tour of Stuart during our Reunion;
>> Stuart staff Brian Garvey and Principal Penny Gross and student Lena for their impassioned introduction to the current Stuart and to the work of the Foundation during our tour;
> Ms. Mask, whose dedication to her students first inspired my interest in honoring her with a scholarship in her name thus leading me to the Foundation;
> Kari Kelley for her generous liaison to the Foundation and the Scholarship process;
> Susan O'Reilly for her tireless advocacy on behalf of the Foundation; and
> my six dedicated co-leaders on our 50thReunion Steering Committee without whose creativity and leadership of the Reunion this gift would not have been possible: Alan Cashell, Caprice Richardson Rosato, Frank Chappell, Jane Borel O'Brien, Noel Augliere Marts, and Rodney Green.
The greatest thanks of course goes to the Foundation itself whose tireless and effective work on behalf of the students and community of JEB Stuart is the stimulus for this gift.
