George '49 and Carol St. Clair
I usually made a yearly gift to the Christchurch School Annual Fund, but approaching my 50th Class Reunion in 1999, I decided I wanted to contribute something additional to the school. In planning our class reunion, Cliff Asbury and I developed the idea of creating a "Class of 1949 Gift" as a challenge to future 50th reunion classes. I wanted my gift to go toward establishing a fund to provide financial assistance to boarding students so they could afford to attend Christchurch School. Our goal was to provide a fund that would provide financial support for a student in need for years to come. While attending reunion weekends, my wife Carol also made many friends with alumni, wives, faculty and staff and experienced the uniqueness of Christchurch. She has also decided to contribute to this scholarship fund by designating a portion of her IRA to be distributed to it. Carol is now a member of the Cameron Society (Christchurch School Society) and her support will increase the available financial assistance available to students. We are pleased to support Christchurch School, and to support the opportunity for future students to experience the unique academic and physical environment the school offers. In case you might be wondering, I am proud to share that the Class of 1949 gift total was $95,000 from 10 of 13 living graduates.
