Members of the class of 2021 came together for the annual Senior Fund Drive kickoff event on October 13. Students gathered on Hardwick Commons lawn, where they enjoyed a socially distanced pizza party and spent quality time with friends, all while learning about the importance of giving back to Blair Academy as they become alumni.
As in previous years, seniors and their parents have joined forces on a shared fundraising endeavor, setting their sights on funding the Class of 2021 Scholarship. “The Senior Fund Drive will help to support the Class of 2021 Scholarship,” said Colleen McNulty P’18 ’20, director of annual giving. “This scholarship will help to provide a Blair education for a future student, and, in turn, will help keep seniors connected to Blair long after graduation day.”
Students heard from Thomas Walker ’21 and Kara Henry ’21, who spoke to their classmates on the importance of giving back to their beloved Blair. The speakers’ words resonated with seniors, 86 of whom made contributions or pledges to the class gift during the event, representing 71 percent of the class according to Kristine Scialla P'20 '22, assistant director of annual giving,
Seniors will present their class gift to the School during the Class of 2021 Assembly next year.
