Dear St. Paul’s Families,

David and I are honored to serve as Grandparent Chairs for Saints’ Fund 2020. This year has proven to be an unprecedented, challenging and surreal time for all of us. So campaigning for a cause we feel strongly about gives us a “spring in our step”! Even during these challenging months for schools presented with closures, quarantines and virtual learning, St. Paul’s handled it with grace, imagination, safety, and professionalism.

Quite simply St. Paul’s Episcopal School is our heart. Our long history with the School goes back to the beginning. My sister, Margaret, was in the first graduating class in 1974 and then my sister, Elisabeth, graduated in 1980. So when David and I moved back to Mobile in 1980 after he completed his medical training and six years in the Air Force, it was with 100% assurance that St. Paul’s was the right school for our three young children. Luckily, we were conveniently close to the school so they were all able to walk or bike to both campuses. Even our golden retriever became familiar with the route and would wait patiently for the school bell to ring!

To fast forward many years, we are now blessed with seven grandchildren, five of whom live here and are all students at St. Paul’s. They range in age from the “red steps” at the Lower School to a senior in the Class of 2021. To see them happy and flourishing there gives us such a sense of peace and continuity.

St. Paul’s is so much more than just a school. Its academic programs are unsurpassed in this state or region. Equally as important to us is the Christian education that instills strong principles and values. St. Paul’s also excels in providing its students with superior opportunities in the fine arts, technology and the diversified sports programs. Most importantly, the students receive all of these opportunities within a wholesome, comfortable, and nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student. The faculty is excellent and they become mentors and role models for our children. What a bonus!

David and I sincerely hope that you will support the 2020 Saints’ Fund this year. It is such an important and incredible investment for our grandchildren’s future at the School. Additionally, the COVID-19 crisis which has increased expenses needed to keep the students safe and on campus, makes Saints’ Fund especially important this year. Please be assured no gift is too small! So, please join us and other supportive “Grands” with a generous gift to ensure all of these programs will continue to nurture our grandchildren in the years to come.

St. Paul’s is family. St. Paul’s is love. Grandchildren are gifts. Know what matters.
