Class of 1969 Legacy Scholarship

October 1, 2014

Dear Friends,

I cannot imagine what it was like to be the "charter class" at Roncalli when those doors opened on September 7, 1965. I can imagine the pride you must feel as our school approaches its 50th Anniversary during the 2015-2016 school year and you approach your 50th class reunion in 2019!

As a charter member of the Class of 1969, your classmates would like to invite you to invest in the future students of Roncalli through a gift to our Endowment Fund. The fund is currently valued at $5 million and the income is utilized to provide financial aid for our students. Presently, 60% of our students recieve tuition aid to help their families afford the present tuition of $5,350.

Please consider joining your classmates through a gift to the Class of 1969 Legacy Scholarship. Their goal is to build a named scholarship to the $50,000 level over the next five years which will support students and Roncalli for another generation.

I would like to thank and endorse the Class of 1969 for organizing this effort which culminate with a gift to Roncalli at your 50th class reunion. Thank you also for "blazing the trail" at Roncalli for the over 5,000 graduates that have followed your example. Your parents and the entire Catholic Community made a tremendous investment in 1965. Your class experienced many firsts and allowed our school to build upon a solid foundation. Thank you and may God bless you, your class, and the legacy that you have created at Roncalli High School!
